My week in pictures






 
1. I missed the bus home from college today so I decided to go for a wander around Rathmines to pass the time until the next one. Oh a whim, I called into The 3rd Policeman and consequently missed the next two buses. This place is quite literally an Aladdin's Cave for vintage enthusiasts, I fell in love with this fur coat which was reduced to €50 (!!!). My other favourite bits were the army parkas, mink hats, lace collars and the most divine antique typewriter in the world. 
 
2. Ever single autumn I get caught up in the obsession of finding the perfect pair of ankle boots. As much as I love my Docs, they have been through the wars and are starting to look seriously battered (and not in a stylish way) so I decided to invest in a dressier pair. I picked these up in Korkys for €45 and although I do like them I would have prefer if they were flatform...
3. The very best thing about being home.

4. I've nearly caught up on Styled to Rock and the most recent episode I watched was the Katy Perry one. I thought the brief behind the outfit the contestants had to design was amazing (The Craft X Pastels) and as usual, Jacqueline's and Steve's looks were by far my favourite! Although I found Megan a bit wearing at times, I was devastated when she was sent home and I thought she was very composed and dignified. Also, how hot is Katy Perry with her purple hair?
5. The only good thing about cold weather.

6. I bought the Topshop brand lipstick in Hazard the other day. I've been meaning to pick this up for ages to replace my beloved MAC Dubonnet. Swatched it looked quite similar to the dark red shade and I'm a huge fan of the formula of Topshop lipsticks, so moisturizing and longwearing but when I applied it, I was so disappointed. On the lips the shade is very dull and definitely didn't live up to my expectations. The search for a dupe continues...
