Hidden Gems

28 October 2010

I love my leopard print faux fur gilet.  I can wear it inside and don't have to turn the heating on, as well as outside without a coat.  Yay!  I bought this in the most unlikely of shops, I believe it's called CC and is kind of an "old lady shop"...I had never been in there before but my mom was visiting me when I was in college in the UK and we both went in because they were having a sale and, well...Dr. Quinn the Medicine Woman's face was on the front window, haha!  I used to love her :) 

This was in May and I spotted this gilet which had been reduced from £150 to something like £40.  I had to have it!  It just goes to show, you shouldn't judge a book by its cover!  Just because you think it looks like an old lady shop, doesn't mean you won't find a hidden gem!  Here's what I'm wearing today:

Gilet - CC (similar style by Love Label here)
Jeans - French Connection (similar style by La Redoute here)
Boots - (get them with straps here)
Top - (same style in different colours by La Redoute here)
Earrings - Accessorize (similar style by Evans here)
Bag - ASOS

I am also wearing a new lip-gloss from The Body Shop, Love Gloss in Twinkling Pink #19, which they sent to me as part of their new Winter 2010 collection.  I'm absolutely in love with it and have been wearing it since I received it.  Not only does it smell deliciously fruity but it also gives the perfect pink sparkle to my lips!  I don't normally like to wear lip-gloss but this one has forced me to put down the Summer Angel...for now...hahaha :)

Let me know what you think of this look!

Stay Stylish!
