A stroll to the park in town with Fleur led me past the same little run down alley and I couldn’t resist to take a few snaps. Wearing the most whimsy cat skirt – I won it as part of a Vintage Style Me giveaway a few months back, and this is, believe it or not, it’s debut on Emily Divine. I’m also wearing a Collective white tee as part of their styling challenge. It’s the most wonderful quality – I don’t think I’ll ever be able to resort back to H&M basics after this. To accessorize, some beautifully quaint, brightly patterened earrings and teapot necklace from Onetenzeroseven.
After a wander round the park we popped in to town and as I tried to find a YSL counter so I could renew my touche eclat foundation – my ‘go-to’ foundation, if anyone is interested!. Alas, one could not be found (I was certain there was one somewhere, perhaps I’m going loopy) so I ended up getting it from the YSL section online on the Harvey Nichols website instead.
This got me thinking about the ‘cost’ of beauty. Have you ever watched one of those ‘how much does my face cost’ videos or blog posts, where the blogger/vlogger totals up how much it costs to do their make-up each day? It’s often astounding and I daren’t try and work out mine as I prefer higher end foundations and skin care products. Are girls just wasting away the balance on their current accounts? It’s food for though, that’s for sure. Bring back the days where my 13 year old self would get everything from the natural collection counter in boots.
