My second year of uni has just started so I thought I’d treat myself to a few things that contribute to my wardrobe, makeup bag, and vinyl collection.
We all have little things that make us happy and for me I usually get things that I either need or will use a lot.
The following few things are what I consider to fall into what I need and will get a lot of use out of whilst still being what I want, so here are my most recent purchases.
I got this jacket from Urban Outfitters which is one of my favourite shops ever! I decided I needed it because one, it will keep me warm as I have no coats or jackets that are thick and cosy, and two, because it has a hood and I also do not own a hooded coat or jacket. I really like how thick it is and it’s a lot more practical than any other piece of outdoor clothing I own. This jacket is perfect for chilly autumn/winter nights and I can especially imagine being snuggled up in it on bonfire night whilst watching the fireworks. It also comes in different colours and it’s reversible!
This was a great buy from H & M. I really like tops with lacing trend and I especially went for the natural white colour as I don’t own many non-black tops (or clothing at all for that matter). This goes great with jeans and I like to add a fedora and some Docs, if it’s a bit nippy even a suede waistcoat or leather jacket.
I love this dress from Nobody’s Child. I really needed something new to wear on nights out and when I was having a browse I saw this and immediately had to get it. I like it because it’s nice and girly but I also think that it can come off as grungy as I usually wear it with fishnets and Docs.
4. Lush seducer eye jewels £10
These aren’t sold online so you have to go in the store to purchase them however that’s part of the fun with Lush! I tried more or less all of them out and I’ll deffo be going back for more but I started off with an orangey-red colour. They’re all shimmery might I add AND they’re 30% pigment! I like to use my fingers to put it all over my eyelids and underneath then finish off with winged eyeliner and mascara (and glitter if I’m going out).
5. Oasis- (What’s the story) Morning glory? vinyl £20
I got this from Sainsbury’s purely because that’s our local supermarket (bit expensive for students, I know!) and they have a pretty sick vinyl selection. I couldn’t decide what to get because I also wanted one of the Nirvana or The Smiths vinyls they did too but I’ve already got at least one record by both artists and not one from Oasis so my choice was made really.
If you like any of the above then I’ve added the links (of what I could) for you to have a browse. Hopefully I’ve given you some inspo on what you might need adding to your wardrobe, makeup bag or vinyl collection, and seen as Christmas isn’t that far away, maybe even your list?
