I have a date coming up and I realised the other day that yes, I do have an outfit but nothing to spice it up. So the obvious answer was to go shopping and a pick up a few bits and pieces. I ended up doing quite a bit of damage at the mall. First, I picked up the Aldo Uleang Necklace ($25.0o) that I have been eyeing for the last couple of weeks. This love affair started off a couple of weeks ago when I was out with a few friends shopping for sales. After much umm-ing and ah-ing, I’m glad now it is finally in my collection; next, I went to just rambled aimlessly in the mall for the perfect pair of shoes. Let me tell you, the Fioni Maven Hooded Shootie ($59.99) are probably the first on-trend shoe that I’ve fell for. The cut-outs really do it for me so despite the fact that these cut and make me bleed, I will keep wearing them because they are absolutely beautiful.
My last stop was to the drugstore to nab the perfect nail colour for those hell-ish boots so that I could pull the whole look together. In my mind, I was looking for a blood red that looked like Bobbi Brown’s Bordeaux and nails inc.’s in Tate and Porchester Square ($11.50 ea.) served up just that. Tate is a good blood red that’s easily buildable and chip-proof (four days and still going strong!) and Porchester Square is a Mauve-y, dusty colour that just edges up the look a little. It’s a feminine colour with some grit to it.
