Snuggly Spots & Giveaway Day 3

Friday, 3 December 2010

Thanks for all the lovely comments yesterday. I think I must have been in a grouchy mood when I wrote the post because looking back at the pictures I've decided that I do rather like the outfit after all. Today's ensemble is decidedly more snuggly and practical for wearing whilst defrosting the car in minus 5 temperatures, brrr!!!



Must stop looking so weirdly obsessed with my feet in pictures.

Dress - local boutique sale (isn't it lovely and nubbly?)
Leggings - Marks & Spencer
Cardi - Hawkshead
Boots - Irregular Choice "Jump in Puddles" via ebay


Can't remember if I've blogged these boots before but I absolutely love them. I have size 6 hoofs and as that's a pretty common size, it can be tricky to get IC bargains on ebay. I've been after a pair of the green heels with the frog charm on for years now but seemingly so has everyone else because they still cost a fair amount. I can only assume everyone else thought this pair of boots was a bit too whacky because I got them for under £15 inc p&p. Yoicks!


On the third day of my giveaway, I will give to thee:


Some French hens of course! These are gorgeous vintage French glass hen shaped egg cups. I could only get two, not three, but really you're lucky that they're in the giveaway at all because I love them so much I want to keep them!! They're quite tricky to photograph but rest assured they are ever so beautiful and detailed. Plus, even if you're not a fan of boiled eggs they're very decorative.

  2. Oooh now these I love! I can see why you would want to keep them yourself, so gorgeous. Though I wouldn't use them for eggs, I would use them for chunky candles so I could keep them out on display all the time.

    Boots are fab, very you x

    I've been so cold, my feet are freezing, even with woolly socks on. Counted 8 layers yesterday.

  13. If it wasnae for our wellies, where would we be?
    *please say you've heard that Billy Connolly song or I'll just look like a nutter!*
    I wierdly do not own any wellies and have resorted to stealing my mum's these past couple of days, even though they're too big!
    Loving the egg cups- I'm hoping we still have some chickens left in our garden after this snow- they're wierdly quiet :/
