after dark all cats are leopards

I'm supposed to be on a spending ban, but I am completely incapable of it. It's like my credit card has a little voice calling to me constantly from my purse.

I rarely go 'shopping' since I spend my entire life online, but my mother is a big fan, so last time I was up North we popped to the Metrocentre. It was good to visit a Simply Be and a Yours Clothing to actually get an idea of the clothes and fit before buying. It was not so good for my bank balance. 

This outfit is nothing special really, but I feel really good in it. There's something about leopard print that makes me feel utterly confident. No clue what that is all about. 

Excuse the crap hair. My hairdresser decided to give me an almost fringe which is single handedly the most annoying thing ever. It's too long to be an actual fringe, yet it won't go behind my ears, so I spend my days constantly touching my hair and giving myself a right greasy do. I have the ability of a 3 year when it comes to hairstyling so this is the result.

Magnificent 7th

Magnificent 7th header

Another month and here we are with today's Magnificent 7th theme. This month the idea was to let someone else dress you.

I didn't really let anyone dress me in this outfit, but I did ask my husband for his opinion (which is rare) on 2 different outfit options. This was the one he chose. 

I worse this for my birthday dinner last month as I wanted to be comfy and smart. Jumpsuits are all kinds of awesome for comfort. I have about 5 now and I cannot get enough. 

The necklace was a bargain from eBay and adds a touch of colour to an all black outfit. I'm loving statement necklaces at the moment. 

I kept it simple with a black lace blazer that I've had forever and pink flats. The matte lipstick is by Mac and is 'All Fired Up', it has the most amazing staying power ever.
