I'd been wanting a white winter jacket but had held off on purchasing one because I didn't want to pay full price and I am also really picky when it comes to coats and winter wear. Lo and behold, don't ya know that you always find something when you're not really looking for it. I stumbled upon a rack with just a few of these white beauties left and on sale for £10!! I love the zipper cross-over and buckle detail on the wrists.
Shoe booties are all the rage these days and I'd thought about getting a pair for awhile now but didn't feel any urgency to find some. Again, I wasn't even looking when I decided to check out a store I'd never been into, Quiz, and saw a whole section of shoes on sale. The black booties were £14.99! The blue snake-skin heels are one of the few pairs of close-toed shoes I've found recently that I actually like and that are comfortable (see my recent post mentioning my dislike for close-toed pumps!). I paid £12 for those and £1 each for the earrings, bracelet and head band. Everything came from Primark except the pumps, which I
These skinny gray (yes, gray! I am branching out!) jeans were only £8 at Primark and I love them. I also have a pair in black. Add to the list my actual blue blue jeans and my favorite pair of Elle white jeans from Kohl's and I've got a good range of color. So proud of myself!
I steer clear of wearing major studded accessories or punk-looking tops with the skinny jeans 'cuz I don't really care for the emo/punk/rocker/grunge thing going on over here in the UK. I like the skinny jeans for their fashion-savvy look, leg slimming and lengthening effect and their ability to show off any fabulous heels I may be wearing, ha. Sadly that isn't too often at the moment, since we have to walk everywhere we are going--easily 1 to 2 miles--and it's rainy, snowy or freezing outside. I've been sporting flat-footed boots just about every day right now, but at least they are comfy!
Lastly, I found these cool sporty-looking ski goggles at the new sports store on Union Street, and they were marked down to £14.99! I got Mike a pair in black.
We were both in need of some pronto since we are headed to the slopes tomorrow! I also have a new winter/ski jacket last week, it's a really dark plum purple and comes with a detachable fleece on the inside, which keeps me super warm. It was originally £85 and marked down to £35, steal! I don't have any pics of that right now but I'm sure we'll get some while skiing tomorrow. But I seriously doubt we'll be skiing in kilts....
