New In

Autumn/Winter Purchases

River Island High Shine Drop Waist Skater Skirt // Topshop Embossed Velvet Fringe Tee // River Island High Waisted Belted Trousers // River Island Copper Beaded Crop Top // Cotton Face Vintage White Faux Fur Collar

I haven’t done this kind of ‘haul’ post for a while now so I’m excited to share my new purchases. Last week, I went ‘Proper Shopping’ (for once not through my laptop) as I was on the search for an outfit for my graduation (which is this Wednesday) and of course, found some other gems on the way. I picked up a pair of high waisted trousers in River Island which are the most AMAZING fit and they also come with a pretty swanky gold belt. I usually hate the belts they give you with trousers, but this one is very cute! If you’re looking for a good staple black pair -I genuinely can’t recommend these ones enough. I also found this high shine black skater skirt which looks very designer-esque. It’s high-waisted, very flattering and an absolute steal for just €12 in their current sale. I also picked up two tops, one in Topshop (velvet + tassles = my ideal top) & the other in River Island. I really love the colours and detail in both.

Finally on Thursday I made a trip to Cotton Face Vintage in Galway, where I ended up finding something for my graduation which I fell in love with immediately. I can’t wait to show you! While I was there, I also purchased a beautiful white faux fur collar (similar here) and the cutest pink & pearl necklace which you may have seen on my Instagram (@retroflame). You can never go wrong with some retail therapy!

I had hoped to have an outfit post for you guys today, but unfortunately the weather wasn’t on my side when I wanted to take pictures -so hopefully I’ll have one for you tomorrow instead.

Hope you’ve all had a nice start to the week!

Stylishly Yours,
