    wow, I finally bought some pjs! We have a la senza outletty place here and I got 2 pj sets for about 18 quid - really simple ones. I really want some of that you know, classy yet sexy nightwear, but so long as it's just me seeing it ( :puppyeyes: ) there isn't any point...so!

    http://www.lasenza.co.uk/level3.asp?...yle=696512&s=3 I wish I had a reason to get this heh.

    oh and I bought a cheapo lacy bra.

    hmmm i dunno, on second thoughts, it's quite cute! and wrap dresses are pretty slimming, there's just something not quite right about the shape. i don't like the shoes she is wearing with it either so that's putting me off!! i think on the right person it could look good but that model isnt doing it any justice.

    Hmmm, I've never bought of ASOS and am weary of quality and stuff so perhaps it's not the best time to try :p:

    The reason I like black or things that are darker wrt to dresses is that I really hate my knees. So unless the dresses hit mid knee, I have to be able to wear at least sheer black tights with them. I'm not a fan of coloured tights (I'm not hip enough to pull them off :puppyeyes: ) and natural tights don't really work with my skin tone. I've seen a gorgeous pinky tea dress but having to wear it without leg coverage of some description put me off.

    Hmm wandered into primark on oxford street to get a plain black tee... and managed to walk out with about 6 different tops, a bag and a necklace... Waaaaay cheap though. They had some really nice dresses too! But I didn't want to queue for 2 hours to try one on I swear they had some decent looking prom dresses as well :eek:

    edit: that's the bag and uhm the t-shirt I'm currently trying on lol

    I bought a dress from there and to be honest, the quality was pretty poor. Also, things tend to look much nicer on there they actually are, so I wouldn't really bother with it...

    You should try this website - www.makeupalley.com - as you can trade make-up with people (generally only brand new or barely used stuff)

    I've ended up with about 5 different MAC pigments all for only the cost of post and packaging

    Black pumps with white dots
    I've ordered some linen trousers from Next for work/to laze around in

    Also, looking for opinions on: these

    They look much better in real life, so preferably opinions from people who've seen them. I'm looking at the lighter ones. If not, ideas for other flats in tan appreciated! :p:

    A fitted leather jacket with, for want of a less crude term, diagonal 'tit zips'.

    I have slim and toned legs, but the shoulders of a rugby player. If I want to rock the indy look I need a jacket that does as much as possible to emphasise the vertical rather than the horizontal. It's remarkable what difference little details make.

    Took ******* ages to find though, God bless vintage shops.

    Returned most of what I got in the topshop online sale and went shopping today and got quite a bit but only spent £33

    primark - necklace, pumps
    peacocks - black vest top, yellow vest top, white vest top, socks
    stead and simpson - black converse lookalikes, navy converse lookalikes - i prefer these to the real thing and find them more comfy
