New Additions

Hello all,

This week myself and a few of my college friends went into Dublin for a spot of shopping. I say shopping but what it really consisted of was us standing in awe in the Disney shop and drinking hot chocolate. There was also a trip to Dublin Ink where three of us got piercings as you do, mine was extremely spur of the moment ( thank you Vanessa for my education on the human ear)but no harm. I had never seen the Christmas lights in the big Smoke ( what a cluchie) so I definitely went home in a very Christmassy mood. Ironically most of things I bought that day were black..oops!
Here are some of the recent things that have sneaked into my wardrobe :)

1) Green Velvet Top - €5, Penneys

I love velvet and I love this shade of green so when I saw this top reduced from €13 to just €5 I had to have it. It is slightly longer than the average crop top which I also love as I don't really think the normal crop top suits me. I can't wait to wear it with high waisted jeans!

2) Pleather Joggers- Primark, €13

These are a bit odd & I don't know why I love them but I just do. I have gone mad for anything pleather-esque (which you will see in a bit)lately and these were no exception. I live in skinny jeans so it's nice to wear something with a different shape to them. 

3) Pack of 5 Glitter Socks- Penneys, €3.50

I love glitter and I love socks so I most definitely love glitter socks. I like to wear these 'fancier' socks - meaning not my odd ones that my family and housemates always see, for wearing with ankles boots or my converse. I think it's nice to just have them peeking up from your shoes :) 

 4) Pleather Pencil Skirt - New Look, €16.99

I love the shape of this skirt and although it isn't the most flattering of materials, especially when skin tight I somehow don't really mind ( I probably should but whatevs). I have been on the hunt for a skirt like this for too long and I was so happy to find it in New Look. I can see it becoming a staple for college nights out.

5) Pleather Skater Skirt- Boohoo, €15

Yes pleather again, I'm sorry. I mentioned I was looking for a pleather skater skirt in my latest wishlist post and thankfully Boohoo saved the day. This skirt has a lovely shape to it and I like the way it sort of ...well sticks out ! A handy thing to throw on and make it look like you put in an effort!

6) Floral Peplum Skirt- €20, second hand

I love this skirt so much. I am so late on the whole peplum thing but better late than never as they say. I bought this second hand from fellow Irish fashion blogger Retro Flame. It is originally Zara but I got it for just €20 which is amazing for a Zara piece. I can't wait to wear it :)

That's all for now folks, I hope you saw something you like and have better self control than me :)
Til next time,
