My mum hit Marks & Spencers the other day and picked up a pair of fingerless gloves for me (hooray for using my touchscreen with toasty palms!) They match a pair of leg-warmers my sister bought me last year so I decided to do the matchy matchy thing for this OOTD:

Waxed style Parka jacket: M&S (UK 22)
Jeggings: Dorothy Perkins (UK 20)
Fingerless gloves: M&S
Leg warmers: Gift from Sister (probably from ebay)

Red Glitter Converse Low Tops: Littlewoods (UK 8)

Navy Cardigan: Primark (UK 18)
White T-shirt: H&M (mama range as it's longer than normal range)

My sis wanted in on the action:

Purpley/Pink Mac: F&F @ Tesco (UK 22)
Grey Jeggings: Dorothy Perkins (UK 20)
Boots: Duo (Malmo) (UK 8)
Oil cloth navy polka dot satchel:  Tokyo7

So I've tried to go easy on my wallet after a good few months of spending to my hearts content so limited my shopping to a couple of sites; ASOS and Evans. I should be an advocate for ASOS, it's where I seem to spend all my £££ these days. I haven't quite caught on to the Evans bandwagon yet so only have a few items from there but I saw a couple of nice pairs of boots online so decided to 'try-after-you-buy'. I especially liked these ones:

Black Knee High Pirate Boots

  • Price: £59.50
  • Colour: Black
  • Item code: 32D68HBLK

They weren't on sale but I did have a 25% off code! (prima25) so I guess it counts...doesn't it?? I also bought this ring:

Wood Cocktail Ring

  • was £9.00
  • now £4.50
  • Colour: Navy
  • Item code: 13C36HNVY

Pretty, right??? From ASOS I bought only this top in pink and black:

  • .

and I wasn't too sure about this one....I mean, I really don't want to be mistaken for a big grizzly while i'm out and about but I thought I'd try it on when it comes and decide then:

ASOS CURVE Faux Fur Coat

NOW £36.00
So...hopefully lots of fierce OOTD's on their way!

Decided to brave the cold today for a bit of Boxing Day shopping with my mum and sister. We didn't get off to a very good start...the car wouldn't start! Annnnyways, couple of hours later it was all sorted. Made it to the shops but was extremely disappointed to find the shops we wanted to visit were closed! So heres my Boxing Day OOTD:

Cream long-sleeved top: H&M (XL)
Military Tunic: Dorothy Perkins (UK 20)
Leggings: ASOS (UK 20)
Boots: Dr. Martens (UK8)
Bag: ASOS (Brown washed leather)

Protecting me from the cold:
Snood: Knitted by me (yarn by Colinette)
Hooded Mac: Few years old from UNIQLO (XL)

This gorgeous model is my older sister Michelle. She wears:
Cardigan: F&F @ Tesco (UK 20)
Black Tunic: Matalan (UK 22)
Mini Skirt: Primark (UK 18)
Leggings: George @ ASDA (UK 20)
Boots: Duo (Malmo) (UK 8)
Cotton Snood: Dorothy Perkins

This is FUN! I love playing dress up!
