I see a movie star, a passer-by, a friend, a celebrity photograph. They are wearing the perfect dress, boots, coat and I have to know where they got said item! Is that you? I love to follow blogs especially Instagram as very often the details of the outfit are published. But of course this is costing me a fortune!
I thought I'd tell you a bit more about my latest crushes!
So last Sunday we went to see La La Land. I loved it! Not everyone does but for me on a rainy, cold, miserable afternoon it was the perfect boost. I fell in love with Emma Stone's dresses. I spent Sunday evening and Monday searching the internet to see if I could find similar, my favourite is the blue halterneck. So far I have failed! But I will be keeping my eyes out in the shops.
Then yesterday I spotted a lady in my local town wearing a very simple outfit. Black jeans or leggings with black boots but they had just a tiny bit of sparkle, like a coated jean, the boots had a similar finish, They were different and they looked so stylish, so 'Parisian', so chic. I've had a quick search online but can't seem to find the right look But I do think 'why do I never find anything like that when I go shopping?'
Then last night on Eastenders, both Sharon and the new Michelle were wearing black PJ's/robes and I thought ooh mine really does need updating! Now on that search I was more successful and Figleaves came up trumps so I will see if it is what I am looking for when my delivery arrives.
Instagram is a great source for finding outfit inspiration though but as I said do be careful to watch your budget! It can get a bit too tempting at times.
