Two lovely new additions to the wardrobe on today’s post. I know, I know…spending ban has ended spectacularly. But only when the further reductions kicked in AND I’ve not spent more than £20 on any one item…trying too hard to justify so I’ll stop now!
Friday saw the launch of Belfast Fashion Week so this is what I wore to the fabulously floral brunch organised by the team at CMPR and held in the Ulster Museum. I’ll share more about this on another post.
|Fur Gilet – Room 31 (25% off with SGS25 at checkout!)
Cream blouse – M&S (last seen here)
Necklace – Promod (last seen here)
Further justifying the spending ban fail, this House of Deron fur gilet was actually gifted to me by Ruth at Room 31. It arrived along with an order I placed last week with her so was a lovely surprise. This is a size M which is a 10. House of Deron is in fact Beyonce’s own clothing company that she runs with her mum and Room 31 stocks several items from the range but this is the most school-run friendly item. Super cosy but not really thick and heavy as its got a faux leather back (super on-trend!) so I was able to wear it easily under my mac all day.
|Jeans – Gok for TU @ Sainsburys
Boots – Zara
So onto the boots, which I had been watching on the Zara site since the sale began but I couldn’t justify them at the first reduction to £49.99. So I held on and kept checking back and last week, there they were at £19.99…it would have been rude not to (I say that a lot in these situations). In fact, they are now only £16.99 but have almost totally sold out.
They are black leather with elastic stitched sides (no zip) and a rubber wedge. Super super high – 11 centimetres in fact! Perfect for dancing in, no?
Yes in fact because after I took these photos, I ran out the door for my choir weekend which started with a choreographed session to The Timewarp. So I ended up dancing for an hour in the boots. My feet ached a bit but I was still walking after it so they’ve most definitely passed the night out test.
Before I go, don’t forget that this Friday is Rock Up In Red day for the British Heart Foundation. Have your red clothing/nails/shoes etc to hand on Friday as I’ve another Radley London limited edition red bag to give away to one lucky Facebook fan! More details on Facebook on Friday.
