Recently I went shopping with my friend Aoife. It's her 21st on Saturday, so we were on a mission to find her an amazing outfit. Of course we succeeded and I managed to pick up a few things for myself as well!
|Dress, €34, Topshop|
Topshop was a pleasant surprise - I'd been disappointed with my last few visits, but they have some lovely summery things in this week. I picked up this pretty cotton summer dress, which I'm delighted with. They also have it in white and a gorgeous mint green, which I am really tempted to go back for or order online.
This satchel has to be my best bargain of the year so far. I grabbed it when I saw that it was in the sale for €25, but only realised when I got home that it had been reduced from €83 - amazing! It's a great quality small satchel-style bag. I love the swallows on the buckle and the lining and pockets inside are great.
In River Island, I picked up two Models Own polishes. They often stock colours that Boots don't seem to have, and I'm so happy with the two that I got! Beth's Blue is an amazing powder blue that matches my Topshop dress perfectly. I can't tell you how much that thrills me...pathetic, I know.
|Beth's Blue, Pink Fizz|
I also got Pink Fizz, which I have been hoping to get for months now! It's a gorgeous pink glitter - the same consistency of Juicy Jules which Sinéad and I are both mad about. A NOTD featuring this polish will be up soon!
I saved the best for last...this 50s-style dress is also from River Island. I'm so happy with it and can't wait to wear it on Saturday! It's a lot more structured-looking on than it is on the hanger. The belt is removable so I'll be getting loads of wear out of it.
I'm now looking out for the perfect pair of black (preferably patent) heels to go with it. Sadly my budget won't stretch further than the likes of Penneys and New Look. If you have any suggestions let me know!
