O.O.T.D - 17/01/12 & Allsaints Spitalfields Bargain

Good evening lovely followers! Just a quick post to show you the outfit and makeup that I wore today. I've been feeling very Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen ever since watching an old Pixiwoo makeup video last night. See HERE for the video that I watched which inspired my makeup for the day.

I decided to go for all black with my outfit - how adventurous! 
I wore the following:

Black leggings: Topshop
Camisole top: Primark
Slubby sheer fine knit jumper: Topshop
Rocco studded bag: Alexander Wang
Tundra leather boots: Ash

I've been longing to wear this top for months and months. I bought it last year (or maybe even the year before!) in Topshop sale but have never been able to pair it with anything that I found to look nice. Finally just decided to wear it plain and simple, thrown over a pair of leggings... and think it looked pretty cool, does it? Who knows?

I wore my hair in a centre parting for a change and ran my straighteners through to make some loose waves.

My watch is from Guess and the necklace is from an Etsy shop, I can't remember which but you can most likely just search "Sideways cross necklace" or something of that nature and you'll find something!

This is how my makeup turned out today anyway, my loose interpretation of the Pixiwoo makeup video.

I used Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow in Burnished across the lids as a base and on top of that I applied Snakebite and Tease from the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette. Along the lash line I used Darkhorse from the Urban Decay Naked 1 Palette.
The eyeliner in my waterline and on the lash line is in Corrupt by Urban Decay.
I then used my usual, Benefit Bad Gal Lash mascara in black.
Foundation is Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in 52 Vanilla.
Concealer used was Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection in 2 Light.
Contour/blush colour is MAC Blush in Harmony.

On my lips I used a mix of Rimmel Nude Delight and Revlon Nude Attitude lipstick.

I was so excited to wear my two new rings today from FASHIONOLOGY. (The silver rings on my index finger and ring finger). I've been looking for this type of ring for years and they arrived yesterday, much to my delight, after ordering them earlier this month.
For sizing reference, in Topshop rings I wear Small on my index and middle fingers. Topshop rings are too big for my ring fingers, so I would class that as meaning my ring finger is an XS. The Fashionology rings I ordered are in a size XS (ring finger) and S (index finger), although M would fit my middle finger as S is too small.

Anyway, it was super cold today and I was going to meet up with the other half so I popped on my teddybear hat from Topshop (you can't really see but it's just a black knit hat with two purply-black pom poms as ears on the sides), my new gorilla jacket from Topshop featured in my HAUL post from the other day and my Kurt Geiger Isla Mittens to keep my fingers toasty!

While out and about with the boyf, I popped into TK Maxx for a wander (and to escape the cold) and couldn't help but notice these lonely shorts hanging on the Final Clearance rail. Much to my surprise, they were not only from Allsaints Spitalfields but also A FIVER. Absolute bargain. They are the Lourdes Kari WPK556 Boy's Short in Indigo and were originally £50 marked down to £14.99 and marked down further to £5. Day made.

Now that I know that TK Maxx sell Allsaints stuff, I will definitely be having a mooch through the clothing section next time I go in. I never give the clothing a second look in that place because I can rarely be bothered scouring through their heap system looking through endless isles of clothes. I normally head to the shoe, makeup or home departments to pick up some bargains, but I think I may have been converted now and will have to keep my eye open in future!
