I achieved my outfit bingo – red lipstick, over the knee socks and a black fedora hat!
Unfortunately, the only over the knee socks I had came to just over my knee – not false advertising as such, but nonetheless annoying for the following reasons;
1. Less flesh covered – more COLD. Pretty obvious one but not pleasant.
2. Socks slip. That’s okay. But when they slip from just above the knee to under you look like a gigantic school child.
Conclusion: over the knee socks should made and branded as “mid thigh” socks. That’s all I’m sayin’.
I’m feeling a little more Christmas-y tonight because I’ve been Christmas shopping! I only bought one thing though – oops. I also wrapped presents (for various Aunts and Uncles) and put them under the tree. The dining room table is decorated with festive cheer (and advent calendars!)
Finally, I got my hair cut! (I apologise for the awkward head tilt pose – not sure what was happening there!) As you can see, the fringe is a lot neater than it looks in the hat picture on the right (which is there to prove I DID wear a hat and lipstick today!)
Oh and before I go I have some bargains to share with you!
I found some amazing low heel boots in New Look, complete with glitter adorned sides. I can’t describe how much I love them. But I will say this – I loved the 50% off sign even more. My boots cost £12.50. Cue smug face. I’ve worn them every single day for the last two weeks. Even during my shifts at work and they are perfectly comfy! 10/10. I have a bad feeling they’ll be sold out now, but if you see any in black and in a size 6, send them my way please!!
On Wednesday I returned to New Look, looking for a cheap way to happiness. I hovered at the accessory stand before selecting a £2.99 navy polka dot hairband with a bow. The sort I’d wanted for months. Upon arriving at the till I discovered accessories were 2-for-1. So I got a black and gold version too. I haven’t been spending money recently as I’m desperately poor, but two hairband for £2.99 seems infallibly reasonable to me. Sorry about my crazy eyes – it’s nearly midnight and I’m very tired.
Luckily, this blog is called THRIFTING Through Life and it all fits it with my current theme of being cheap and cheerful. Thumbs Up!
