Lust After / New Arrival: Winter Drop!

OK so I totally skipped day 7 oh well!
On Sunday I tidied my entire room, which is practically unheard of
and the boyf put all my pictures up on my wall for me and I totally love it!

Heres a quick looksie at what I've been buying,
and what I've been trying not to buy this week!


Studded Boots
£50 AllSaints
Reduced fron £220!!
I luff them.... Lots

In the end I ordered this Aztec Cape / Blanket from Topshop!
It came online and a day after it sold out, it was only after it sold out I realised how much I wanted it
so when it came back into stock I ordered it straight away!

I also discovered it had been put on line in this colour too

and I couldn't decide..
So I ordered both colours and may be sending one back once they arrive
£36 Topshop

And I thought while I was there I might as well spend enough to get free delivery right??

So I added this t-shirt
as it fulfils my loves of grey marl, oversized tees, and galaxy prints!
£22 Topshop

I also ordered these boots
Oh I love a bit of embellishment on an ankle boot!
£38 Topshop
which is pretty good for a leather boot, 
I hope they fit me!

Aztec Snood
just yummy right??
Loving aztec, intarsia, navajo patterned knits or whatever you want to call it
and I thought this would be a nice way of adding a splash 
to an otherwise plain coat or outfit!
£20 ASOS
(ASOS have 15% off own branded items atm with code AWSTYLE15)

I am trying not to buy:
Well you might notice that these are similar to the other Topshop boots I've ordered
I actually saw these first,
but plumped for the spangley ones in the end as always!
£35 Topshop

This item is such a bargain
I'm really trying to resist, but wow
I want it... a lot!
Butterfly Bag by my favourite bag designers Angel Jackson
£149.99 reduced from £475 !!!!!!
at Urban Outfitters

I want these quite a bit
we sell them at my work so I can get a discount on them
 and also I could wear them to work for the whole winter
how comfy and lovely
might have to get them!
£135 Fitflop Mukluk in Amethyst

I'm totally excited about winter clothes
a lot
all I need now is a faux fur hat with ears
and I'm not joking, I'm on the look out!

What Milly Wore: Reliving my youth

Hi guys,
I have had a few requests for pics of my hair so here they are

Please excuse my redfacedness!
this is my natural complexion without make-up!

But yeah, I love my new hair colour
much more subtle and unique than all out highlighter pink
It reminds me of my little pony or unicorns!
I just wish it was much longer and wavier!

For upkeep I'm using a purple toner to keep it as pale and white blonde / pink as possible,
 rather than yellowy peachy pink

( tehee you can see the boy in my sunglasses)

Today I wore:

Floral Playsuit/Romper: £20 Miss Selfridge Sale (this season)
Livin in the 80's My little Pony T-shirt (underneath): Doe @ Urban Outfitters
Grey Leggings: French Connection
Metallic Pewter Bag: Topshop
Avitors (actually the boys) : 25p New Look sale!!!
( nose cushions missing but we just bought some new ones for a pound!)

Grey Measuring Tape Detail Ballet Pumps: Office Sale

I had to shorten the straps on my playsuit by a considerable amount
as it was far to long in the body!

I got nifty with my sewing machine and got rid of the bottom half of the straps
making it into a V rather than an X

so now it looks like this 

Here is the back of my romper, and what it looks like now!
looking at this pic made me realise just how short and tubby I am
like a munchkin!

I'm quite pleased with the little sewing job I did there,
I don't think it looks altered at all which is good!

Working full time again next week so not so many pretty outfits!

do you ever alter your clothes?
had any disasters??

hope you've had a great weekend
