Thirty-five or "Wednesday Addams"

These photos were taken on a Thursday, but let's not split hairs here. So in my last post I spoke about how I hadn't really ever ordered clothes online before... this past week or so I've been making up for lost time and going click-crazy on the interweb shopping front!

I must have been one of the only fashion bloggers left who had never tried ASOS before, which is criminal really considering they actually have a Petite line and I'm always banging on about how difficult it is to find clothes that fit my shortness. After witnessing the sheer amount of clothing amazingness that my desk-neighbour at work has ordered from ASOS, I decided it was about time I took the plunge and tried it for myself. Here's what I got: a wonderful Peter Pan collar dress, yay!



Plus cardigan 'cos it's cold, innit

As you can see, the dress is the perfect length... you have no idea how much of a relief it is to buy something which doesn't need any alterations - bravo, ASOS Petite, I'll definitely be trying you out again!

I was debuting a couple of other new purchases that day, including the black version of some boots from Runway Shoes that I also have in brown. I rarely buy the same item in more than one colour but was willing to make the exception for these beauties, they are so versatile and, more importantly, comfortable to wear! I spent the whole of yesterday traipsing up and down Oxford Street in these with not a limp, wince or blister to be had: genius!



Tartan scarves seem to be everywhere right now... which I noticed AFTER I bought this fine specimen. That wouldn't have stopped me though as I love it and it has swiftly become my comfort blanket of choice.



I know it's now December, but these photos were taken in Movember and I had the earrings to prove it. I was also sporting some awesome bracelets: love you, mean it!
