Autumn Fashion & Beauty Haul

Saturday, 2 November 2013

Well here it is! My almighty haul! I don't actually want to think about how much I've spent here, as it's probably far too much money!
I started off by picking up a few treats from MAC as I'm a bit of a MAC virgin. I loved the shade of this Viva Glam lipstick when the artist put it on me, and she even taught me how to do the elusive eyeliner flicks. Now just to try it out at home!

As I anticipated, my Lush Skincare regime hasn't held up to the change in weather, and I'm suffering dryness and redness flare ups, so I've gone back to to my tried and trusted Clarins set up. My skin is definitely thanking me for it!

I feel in love with these two dresses from Glamorous UK. The blue and pink one will see me through the Christmas party season and even next years wedding season. I've seen so many people wearing the Primark tartan dress, but I wanted something with more of a skater skirt, and I love this green check! It reminds me so much of a dress I had as a child on Christmas day. I'll be wearing this for Christmas day with thick tights and a cardigan. Perfect!
No haul post is complete without something from Primark. This rose print tea dress is so pretty at £8, and at this time of year, I can't go into Primark without buying super cosy tights or pjs! I love this statement necklace for a over a plain jumper or cardigan. I needed to return the dress for a slightly larger size. This is always a disaster! I'd managed to avoid the scarf section the first visits (because what I need in my life is more scarves obviously!) but ended up leaving with three the second time around! Oh dear!
I am in love with this Eva Boohoo coat!!! It literally hasn't been off my back since I bought it. It ticks so many trend boxes - biker oversized coat; pleather pockets; shearling collar. Tick Tick Tick. I would have perhaps liked pleather sleeves but I can get over that. At £50 it's still a bargain, but I found a 20% discount code which made it even more bargainous!
I originally saw this tribal print cardigan on Mary Jane Fashion website, but they had sold out. I then found it on Amazon, and it was slightly cheaper too! The chunky fisherman jumper is from Chiara.
Finally, I seem to be inexplicably drawn to New Look. I stocked up on some basics - pair of jeans, nude and black cardigan, and corresponding shoestring vests. I also bought a longer length black vest, so I can wear it over leggings, even if the my jumper is slightly short. All told this only came to £40 which is pretty good for this many, good quality basics.
There are  a few other bits I've bought in the run up to autumn, but not all at the same time. I think I'll show these within another outfit post, but all in all, this is definitely my autumn winter wardrobe done! And on that note I am now on a self-imposed spending ban!

What do you think of my Autumn/Winter purchases?
