OOTE: White Dress.

Just a quick OOTE.
I'm made the potentially very silly decision of going out last night in a white dress, but I returned stain free!
This is another Zara sale purchase (I went a bit "cray" in Zara).
It was £22 (if I remember correctly) down from around £50 , *sigh* I love bargains.

Shoes: New Look.

Lips: kate for Rimmel shade No. 03, Choker: H&M.
Please forgive the bad quality, it was a really miserable day and the lighting was terrible.

Thanks for reading,

I've been getting very excited recently with all the new season clothes coming into stores! There are a some expensive things that I'll have to wait a few paydays for, but there have also been some great things in the new Primark collection. They have all the pictures here on the Look Magazine website.

I'm also getting all hot and bothered about this:

These are the BB creams soon to be released by Body Shop. I love the idea of BB creams but I've been underwhelmed by most high street attempts so far, so i shall be eagerly awaiting the arrival of these and will hopefully be doing a review :)

I couldn't go without showing you these beauties! Sadly, they are a distant dream since they are £59.99  
:( they're from Zara and they're called "ballerina with jewels" if you'd like to find them :)

I would also like to say a big thankyou to Shelley Anne for nominating me for the Liebster Award! I will post my response and nominations in the next couple of days :)

Also, I'm not entirely sure what this means yet (I'm still very new to blogging) but please follow me on Bloglovin! It would make my day <3

OOTD: Studded Zara Shirt + Revlon Kissable Lip Balm Stain.

Here is an outfit of the day with my new favourite thing, I posted about it the other day, my new Zara shirt!

Shirt: Zara, Jumper: H&M.

Trousers/leggings: Zara.

Bag: Urban Outfitters sale.

Shoes: Topshop sale.

I accidentally deleted the picture of the shoes with my outfit, sorry :P

I also wanted to mention that I recently tried the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm Stains (the ones similar to the Clinique Chubby Sticks) i was so pleased a drugstore brand released something in this format, because the application is great, it's so much easier to get a nice shape to your lips.
I haven't tried the chubby sticks because they're a bit pricey for me, but these are really lovely. I've had quite dry lips over the past few days and wearing this actually helped! They're so creamy its like wearing a balm, the colour lasts a reasonably long time and to top it all off, they have a really nice minty scent!
I went for a dark purpley colour in preparation for autumn:

My lips look weird here, but I promise it is a really lovely colour!

What are your thoughts on this product? (I welcome any differing opinions :P)

I'm going to (very last minute) submit my entry to the RedRock Fashion blogging competition!
It is such a cool brand which I shall definitely be making one of my regular fashion website destinations :) 
My outfit came from browsing through all their lovely vintages things while enjoying the recent lovely summery weather :)

I have named it rather unimaginatively, Vintage Florals!

The jumper and shorts are RedRock Fashion's very own, and the beaded collar, necklace thingy (I'm so full of fashion jargon) and brogues are from Topshop :)

Good Luck to all the competitors, I certainly had fun doing it!

Thanks for reading,

My Shirt-Baby.

I warn you now, this story is an emotional rollercoaster.
I recently spent £30 on a shirt which I only do in very special cases, it was half price from Zara and IT'S JUST BEAUTIFUL.

HOWEVER, after wearing it just twice the underarms went all frayed and wierd :( I have no idea why, maybe I have acidic sweat or something.
So, I'm going to take it back and try and get another one, please do comment if you would like an Outfit of the Day with this shirt (if I am successful).
I would also be really interested if you have any tips on how to stop it from fraying (it's silk if that has anything to do with it?)

Thankyou so much for reading,
