TRAFFORD CENTRE HAUL

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, today I went to the Trafford Centre in an attempt to find my dress for Christmas/New Year. I'm very impressed with myself. Not only did I find a dress (and shoes!), it's also not black! In fact, it's a little out of my comfort zone but it's so pretty and it's so lovely on.
Sorry that it's a bit photo heavy!


Nail polish: Gold Rush, Lip liner: Red Diva

Still taking advantage of Boots 3 for 2 offer (which I think ends in a few days!) All the Boots near me are too small and don't stock Models Own but I restrained myself to one bottle and I don't have any golds. I've heard a lot of good things about the Wake Me Up range by Rimmel and needing a new concealer I thought I may as well give it a go. Also been doing some reading up on lip liners. This one was really cheap so worth it to try out. Please let me know your favourite brands for lip liners though.

New Look

I'm never a massive fan of New Look but I do always like going in for a nosey and their shoes are very reasonably priced. These only cost £22.99! They come in black too.





Forever 21

Forever 21 opened a few months back in the Trafford Centre and this is very exciting for me. I just need to live in there! I had to really restrict myself. I'd taken so much into the fitting room with me. The shirt is beautiful though and I know I'll get a lot of wear out of it and best of all, it cost £11.50 at full price!
I've been wanting a cosy jumper as it's got ridiculously cold this last week and I love the colour of this one (which also came in black) and I think it was £18.75. It was definitely less that £20!
And the earrings... I'm drawn to anything with an anchor and this little set was about £3 for 3 pairs! So good!


 Topshop

My dress! My beautiful dress! It's such a beautiful colour. I found it in the sale in Topshop for £20 but it's actually from one of their concessions. (The label says "tfnn London") So definitely not black and lots of sparkle for the party season! And I got the shoes from New Look to go with it and they look lovely.
I feel like a mermaid wearing it!

I'm not going to be wearing it with tights, probably, but here's a photo of what it looks like on...

Huge apologies for (dirty) mirror photo! Just wanted to show how it looked on!

I'm all shopped out now and I'm going to have to be very good for the rest of the month. Eek!
