So I bought the boots from my 'Reasons to love Autumn' post. They didn't have them in store so I ordered online. For £100 I really thought they looked quite poor quality. I just expected a heavier, thicker type of material and they were a bit flimsy. Then came the moment of truth, trying them on my and surprise surprise, no they didn't fit my chubster legs. They made quite a good effort, I could get them on with a bit of tugging, but it wasn't a good look and I think I may have cut off the blood to my feet had I kept them on for long, so back to Next they went. I now have a thirst for some new knee-high boots so I guess I'll spend all winter looking for the perfect pair. There's a lot of thigh high / over-the-knee going on at the moment, which I quite like as long as they don't look too kinky! I have actually got some from last year but believe it or not, they're a little baggy and actually start to slide down when you walk. From one extreme to the other, i just can't win!
The 3 pairs of Matalan shoes I showed you in my 'Matalan wardrobe additions' post (bought in electric blue, raspberry pink and lush purple) are a definate hit! I wore the blue to work with a blue dress and got loads of compliments, then I wore the pink with a black dress and almost matching raspberry cardigan and they were also a success. I even wore the blue again last night with the Miss S Cutie dress and leggings - I took some photos last night so I'll see if there are any full length ones to share. Now I need to let the purple ones out there to meet the world!
It's been a while, too long, since I ordered some goodies. So here are the latest purchases.
I also got a set of my favourite eyeliners - Urban decay 24/7 which I will get someone to give to me for Christmas! I got my first set of these the Christmas before last and I think it had 5 pencils in it. I mainly use the black (zero) but I also really like the green, blue and purple colours. There was a new set out last Christmas but it had a few I really wouldn't use such as red so I didn't get it. I'm really pleased they've brought out this set which includes 9 pencils for only about £2 more than the set with 5 (or maybe it was 6?). But anyway I really love these, they're very good liners, nice and soft and smooth so they don't drag your eye and this set has all sensible colours that I would wear. I think my Mum would like this for Christmas too.
So that's all for this haul, oh other than I bought a top for my bf, but it's not very interesting!
