Outfit: Oxford Flats & Gingham

I went to town, today, to spend some of the money I made on Sunday and so I'd have an excuse to wear my new shoes and my new dress.

Oxford Flats & Gingham

Outfit details: ribbon - ?; dress - etsy; socks - Holeproof; oxford style flats - Rubi Shoes.

I felt slightly school-girlish due to a mix of the pattern of the dress and wearing socks & shoes (wearing a ribbon in my hair probably didn't help any) but I don't mind all that much. The main trouble was finding a cardigan to go with the outfit! I ended up with a red one but it didn't suit very well - maybe something in a darker brown (like the shoes?) or a navy blue. Hmmm.

In terms of shopping I've finally bought myself some MAC lipstick (Ruby Woo) because almost everyone seems to love it so much that I felt I ought to give it a go, even if it is rather a bit expensive. The lady also sold me some lipliner, which I do like to use, anyway. I thought I was doing well and not spending too much...until I bought myself a whole lot of DVDs: a couple of Poirots, Cadillac Records, the most recent adaptation of Persuasion, and a 3 disc set that had a couple of Dirk Bogarde films in it, for those of you who are interested to know! I'm definitely going to (eventually) screencap the Poirots & Cadillac Records. I might even do Persuasion, actually.

  1. Hi Andie, for the uninitiated like myself, what is screencapping please?

  2. What were the ladies at MAC in the city like? I desperately want to go and buy some higher-end makeup but I get super intimidated by the sales ladies in there.

  3. ruby woo is the way to go baby! if you don't like it's mattness (it can be a bit dry for some lips), mix it with a lipstick brush and some gloss on the top side of your hand before you apply it x

  4. I'm excited to see your ventures in mac! Also love the outfit! I have a slight obsession with oxfords/wingtips/brogues.

  5. I saw that dress on etsy! it was in my favourites! I am so glad you have it! It is so beautiful.

  6. I love Ruby Woo, and Russian Red for Mac... Russain Red is a little dark for me depending on what I am wearing though, because I am blonde... I still cant beat Revlon's Fire and Ice tho... :)

  7. You look fantastic! You could try a navy blue cardigan as a nice contrast to the brown. Will you be posting a review of your foray into MAC?

  8. I bought my first MAC lipstick about 2 weeks ago too! I love it :)

  9. ooh now that's super lovely!!! I want it all!


I read and greatly appreciate each and every comment. Thank-you! x
