October was a great month for acquisitions for me. It was my birthday month and I was spoiled rotten by my nearest and dearest, I hauled big time at the Pro Beauty Show in the RDS, I attended a few different bloggers events, including launches from Inglot, Yves St Laurent and Youngblood Cosmetics and 2 meetups along the way! I know that November will not be anywhere near as generous as October was, but I still wanted to draw attention to the bits that I am lusting after for the month ahead.
Since I darkened my hair, I have been drawn to two things in particular that I was never particularly drawn to before- burgundy and faux fur. Maybe it's a sign that I have gotten older- who knows- but all I know is that I am a magpie for burgundy/oxblood/merlot/plum tones and faux fur anythings!
This burgundy dress from New Look caught my eye both instore and online, and I am thinking it could very well be my Christmas party dress this year. I absolutely love the embellishment at the waist and the deep plunging V neckline at the front and back. I have been stalking various Penneys stores around Dublin and Cork trying to find this burgundy bag- it's a great size, comes with mini handles and a long crossbody strap so it's versatile. and I think the lock detail is adorable.
I'm really into my statement necklaces this winter and this beaut from New Look is right up my street. I would wear this with a simple black dress with a plunging neckline or a cream or white peplum top. I love wearing scarves in winter so I feel it's about time to invest in a snuggly snood, and this black one with little stud details from Penneys would do the job nicely.
I saw this burgundy clutch bag in New Look two weeks ago and I have been lusting after it since I saw it and I know it's just a matter of time before I commit and purchase. I think it's adorable and I could see myself getting so much use out of this over the Christmas party season!
I have been looking for a black faux fur shrug for the longest time and I was overjoyed to spy this little cape on the New Look website. I have seen these in a few different places over the last few weeks and whilst I was highly skeptical at the beginning, now that I have seen it, I believe it, and I'm gonna pick this one up to wear at Christmas.
Finally, I really want a pair of burgundy Converse shoes. I wear Converse all the time when I am kicking about at home and I probably have 20 pairs already but there is always room for one more! My sources also tell me that you can get great dupes of these in Penneys for seven euro- that'll do nicely!
