I mentioned recently that I haven't been feeling very inspired by anything in the shops at the moment, but this has actually had two rather positive effects. The first obviously being that I've spent zero money on clothes and the second being I've been forced to raid my wardrobe and pull out some old favourites. I bought this Asos oversized ombré t-shirt years ago, back when the whole ombré phenomenon had just begun. I do still actually like ombré items but some can look really cheap and nasty. I still love this oversized t-shirt, it goes with absolutely anything and you can wear it loose over jeans or tied into a knot at the side like I have to create a tighter fit. I've worn it with my new favourite River Island pleather trousers which I've been wearing all week. I've seen they now have an ultra glossy pair in store and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't tempted!

I'm obsessing over dark lips now that we are in the full swing of Autumn/ Winter and I'm pretty glad as I was getting a little sick of coral/ orange lips. I've dug out some of my old dark lipsticks, including this beautiful Tom Ford shade 'Black Orchid'. I've got a fair few Tom Ford lipsticks and although they're ridiculously expensive, I think they are probably the best out there. I wore this all day yesterday and didn't have to reapply once, even after tucking into my Pret lunch! There are probably cheaper dupes out there that do pretty much the same job but there's still something about Tom Ford that just does it for me. Anybody that knows me, knows my scent as the Tom Ford Black Orchid perfume, so it's no surprise that the matching lipstick will now be my new favourite lip look!
