- Purchased "Skin Foundation SPF 15" by Bobbi Brown (my shade is Sand) after endless hours of musing and testing. I take ages to choose makeup! I hope I made the right choice.. it seems really nice, like a tinted moisturiser with a little more coverage which was exactly what I was looking for. Definitely recommend, at the moment anyway.
- I also spent hours browsing Topshop, trying on all the different shoes I posted about in the blog post below. Ended up leaving with just this:
- Now, about the shoe choices below - I've had a chance to try most of the Topshop ones on & can therefore re-assess my choices:
---> The thigh high, flat boot that all of you and I are in love with is actually grey leather in real life. It's still gorgeous though, I love the clunky boot detail at the bottom combined with the long leg shaft. However, like with all OTK boots I supppose, walking in them was a little tricky as they didn't allow for much bending at the knee.
---> The C. Kane for Topshop boots/heels just felt a little poorly made/bad quality. Also, whilst I was looking at them and wondering which one to try on, this lady next to me (talking to her friend) was like "OH LOOK AT THESE HORRIBLE THINGS... THESE SHOES ARE FOR PROSTITUTES!!!!". Thanks.
---> The Chelsea ankle boot was clunky and nice, but didn't give me any shivers of excitement.
---> I also tried on some brogues which looked fairly sensible but again didn't give me any sensations of longing/desire.
AND LAST, BUT DEFINITELY NOT LEAST....
--> The Ashish for Topshop boots! Apart from the fact that I almost sprained my ankle trying these on, there is no denying that these babies are the BOMB. They are unbelievably comfortable and FIIIERCE (cue tyra finger wiggle). Definitely my favourite try-on of the day. But so impractical, especially with the blustery weather we've been having recently!!
WHAT DO I DO NOW??????
OTHER POSSIBLE ADDITIONS TO THE SHOE CLOSET INCLUDE:
(Please give opinions!!)
Yeah I'm pretty late jumping on the bandwagon with these.. still love them though.
Office - pretty good Chloe Susan replicas.
- And one more thing - Go watch Beyonce ft Lady Gaga: "Videophone".
