FASHION // A little Autumn Haul

Monday, 5 October 2015

Hello there!
What is it about student finance coming in that makes you go absolutely bonkers and buy everything within a 3 feet distance? My spending has been out of control recently due to me thinking 'oh no - I have no going out shoes' or 'what am I going to wear tonight?' etc. etc. etc. Well, that must mean that I have a few new things to show off, and so here they are!

I thought I'd start off with some of the most beautiful silver shoes I have ever seen. ASOS have gotten these SECRETS sandals completely right. The scream Valentino (the Rockstud shoes will be mine eventually!) and are just so tacky I love them. They are such a statement that I cannot wait to dress up or down. I mean, sure they'll look great with skinnies and a tee or a fancy dress. You cannot lose!


I want to ask a question to the world on behalf of every woman above a size 16 (if that's okay with them). Why is it impossible to find a bralet, or at least pretty non-wired bra, in a size 18+? Next time you go shopping, have a little look. I have spent months searching to no avail and, to be frank, I have better things to do but refuse to until I find a reasonably sized bralet. I mean, sure, I don't intend to wear one out of the house but sometimes you want something on around the house that isn't uglier than my face first thing in the morning. I spotted this New Look beauty on the ASOS website and it is absolutely perfect. It is seriously comfortable and silky and pretty and exactly what I wanted. Take note shops of the high street - get more of these in the shops! I have no will power and will buy them all.

Last up is my new Converse. I had a voucher from Very which entitled me to £20 off and so, obviously, a new pair of Converse were inevitable. I have thrown out my precious Stars and Stripes recently after getting ruined in a Canadian thunder storm (may you rest in peace) and now I'm in the lab 5 days a week I felt like I needed to have some choice for lab footwear. They looked the most amazing colour on the website but in real life look really quite childish (like crayon pink - it's weird!) However, I realized that once they are worn in they'll probably look quite nice and they sure are distinctive. They were so darn cheap as well - I cannot really complain!

So these are just a few of the bits and pieces I have been treating myself to recently. If I photographed everything I would be at it for about 2 weeks and no-one wants to read a post that long! 

Have you been treating yourself to some new season goodies? Let me know!

  7. As you know, i absolutely love those shoes!!! gorgeous. i also hate the fact that you can't find nice lingerie for 16+! literally all I'm looking for is a non wired non padded all that SHIZZ bra (basically that one ^) to lounge about in the house in. with clothes as well of course. So i'll definitely be buying myself one! xxx

    1. They are just gorgeous! I have been on such an extensive search it's not even funny. I have a few from Aerie which a little small but do the job. It's not the point though - we deserve them too! I should start a petition/my own lingerie range ;)

  8. Hahahaha...I can relate with the excessive buying when your student finance money rolls in. After I completed Uni, I thought how stupid I have behaved, because I could have save more. LoL!
    On the bralet, - Girl, you hit the nail right on the head!! What can a curvy lady do to get some sexy ones for something something. Hahaha... I'm still searching too.
    Awesome haul in all. Have a blessed week. :))

    1. I'm trying so hard but ergh - so much pretty stuff! It's such a pain to get nice lingerie not in the 32-36 back range!

  9. I love that bralette! I seriously can't stand padded bras and bralettes are just so comfy, love wearing them. My problem is a little different, but whenever I find the prettiest bra, it always has to be padded and really uncomfortable to wear. Your Converse shoes are so pretty too, love that color!

  10. I think the converses are quite cool! Currently I've just been getting some Autumn basics in, although I did get a new jumper that isn't something that I would normally go for that I'm quite pleased about :)

  11. I love the shoes, they are gorgeous and that bralet is just perfect. Can't believe it's from New Look, will have to hunt it in store or look on asos like you did x

    1. New Look have so many bralets to fit up to a size 14-16 but very few above. I was lucky to snap up that one!

  12. I honestly never got why most shops just stop at at size 14 or an XL...there are more body sizes than that, guys. That's awesome you finally found one though- asos is really amazing with their plus size lines. Those are the only kind of bras I wear so I'm happy you got to join in :) Also, love that cute fur pompom! I've been tempted to clip one to my belt haha, it's such a fun touch.
