October Haul :)

I thought I would do a haul for you guys since I can't even remember the last time I posted a haul! Here's just a few things I've picked up throughout October.

Skeleton Onesie - New Look (Mens Section) - £24.99
I love skeletons and skulls and all that stuff! So I had to grab this before Halloween was over! This is from the Mens section (I wear a size Small) and it's also glow in the dark!

Tee & Cake Skele Dress - Topshop - £30
Absolutely loved this when I saw it! It has a low rise back too. The dress is currently out of stock but you can find a near identical one on eBay for around £12 with postage: here

Hamsa, Peace, Ankh & Eye Charm Necklace - Topshop - £6.25 (half price from £12.50)

Yankee Candle Small Jars in Witches Brew (£6) & Candy Corn (£4) - eBay
I won these both in eBay auctions from the same seller as I really wanted Halloween themed Yankee Candles to add to my collection! Candy corn is definitely my favourite, It's sweet and smells like popcorn or sweets to me! Witches Brew is quite a strong smell of patchouli which apparently is a member of the mint family (even though it smells nothing like mint haha!) Here is a link to the seller I bought from: clickity click!

American Apparel Black Disco Shorts - eBay - £28.99 with postage
I won these on an auction also and I'm so glad I did! They are gorgeous, a bit revealing on the bum area but this is covered up fine with black tights underneath :) They're definitely a bit looser than the disco pants, even though it's the same material :S but I would highly recommend getting the real thing when it comes to disco shorts, I tried on the Glamorous version a few months ago and they were too thin and made them look unflattering! 

Rose Gold Chain & Gold Chain - H&M - £4.99 & £3.99; Touch of Silver Brightening & Daily Maintenance Shampoos - Boots - Around £3; Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer - Boots - £4.19; Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Conditioner - Boots - £1.89 (half price offer)
After seeing these necklaces on both LeanneWoodfull and BeautyCrush, I hadddd to find them! I already knew they had the gold one in my local store but I couldn't find the rose gold one and I was starting to give up when I checked in there on Friday evening and they had the rose gold one! Both are gorgeous and I think I'll wear them all the time! I just restocked on some hair and make-up products too on a trip to boots, I'm trying to be careful when using the touch of silver stuff so my hair doesn't go purple or grey! 

Faux Leather Gilet - H&M - £24.99

Jeffrey Campbell Black Leather Tardys - Office - £50 (on sale)
Last but not least, I have lusted after the tardys for months now! And Office randomly restocked a size 6 so I knew I had to have them! They are perfect for winter, Incredibly comfortable and can be worn both in the day and in the night! 

I'm also selling 2 pairs of my Jeffrey Campbell's on eBay right now! Due to not wearing enough or being too high for me! Click: here! 

Hope you liked this post!

OOTD: Blue Velvet

Pantera Top - eBay
Spike Necklace - Forever21 (circa 2011)
(similar: here)
Blue/Turqouise Velvet Skirt - Topshop (via eBay)
(similar: here)
Cross Earrings - Fashionology
(only medium available: here)
Black Neneh Wedge - Office (sale)
Lipstick in Cranberry (from the Berry Christmas Collection) - Sleek Makeup

I wore this outfit yesterday and the majority of it consists of eBay bargains! My friend showed me this picture of a girl in a velvet skirt with a band tee and I decided to nab it but recreate it in my own way, I decided to have a blue coloured skirt, the Pantera tee I had already ordered and the purple tones from the tee mix so well with the skirt! I also got spandex lace cycling shorts instead of the jersey material! I mixed it up a bit with my new office neneh wedges from the sale, They remind me of a more attractive version of creepers, I've always been on the fence about creepers, I love the flatform feel but I just didn't like their specific look so this is my substitute! 

Hope you like this look :)

OOTD: Checked Hooded Jacket

Gold Chain - Topshop
Gold 7cm Hoop Earrings - Car boot sale
(similar: here)
Black Jersey Mini Skirt (for layering) - H&M
Black Nylon Tricot Leggings - American Apparel (via eBay)
Lipstick in Cranberry (from The Berry Christmas Collection '11) - Sleek Make-Up

Here's what I wore on Friday night, I ended up going out on the town unexpectedly so I was glad I wasn't too under dressed with this outfit! I decided to wear eye-shadow for the first time in ages which I think was Side-car and Buck from the Urban Decay Naked Palette. I am absolutely in looooove with my new coat, it is so cosy and warm and I think I could get away with wearing it to work because the body is wool which makes it look like more of a coat than a casual jacket! I love the Boy tee too, such a good dupe for the real t-shirts retailing at £35, and this bad boy was only £6.19 inc. p&p, I wear a size Small which I believe is a 34-36" chest and I'm a size 12! I have mega OCD over my phone cases and always have to have one that has a front and back case so my phone's more protected as I always seem to drop it, I wanted a skull one and this is the nicest one I could find, it's extraaaa gothic but I like it ;)
