So I’m going to leave the ‘shopping for others’ talk aside for this week on the blog, and talk about something that has gave me a little more joy: shopping for me. It doesn’t happen all that often, and in all honesty, I can’t recall too well the last time I actually had a little splurge on myself, but better late than never…
Some of you might say it’s cheating because I actually have been doing a bit of shopping amongst my own boutique stock. But hey, it’s not technically cheating. If I pull some of my favourite items aside for myself, it means I lose out on a customer, so I have to truly want something before I do it.
Introducing my two favourite new Christmas party items: my purple sequin mini dress, and my fabulous black mesh midi skirt from my ASOS Marketplace Shop.
I’ve actually been over the moon that this gorgeous, all-rounder black skirt has actually been a sell out! I currently have just one size 8 left in stock, which means the style has almost sold out within just two weeks of it going live. It’s fairly easy to see why though, I mean, when is this skirt really going to go out of fashion?
You can’t get much more classic and timeless that a mesh detailed midi skirt, therefore this has become my staple go-to for the up-coming party season. I have a few rather lovely sparkly tops and fitted cami’s that will look super pretty teamed with this. And, it’s just £15. Bargain or what…
The shoes I’m wearing in the photos above are High Street purchases, and cost me no more than £30 a pop. I’ve discovered a new fashionable ladies footwear retailer online too, called Brantano Footwear. Because I like to have a variety of different heel heights, open toes, close toes and various styled shoes, it’s important to me that I find a good quality, reasonable priced shoe retailer. Mainly because I buy shoes often, and go through them just as often! The ladies shoes section is a really cool discovery of mine, with so many evening shoes which look gorgeous with party outfits like the ones above.
A great place to shop for some last minute Christmas party heels yourself this season!
