Shopping Trip!

Last week I went on an impromptu shopping trip. I was going to Selfridge's with the sole purpose of buying some cake mix and well... the picture below illustrates what I ended up bringing home with me. Whoops.

The city where I'm living right now, London, is home to some world class shopping and while I generally can't afford too much shopping (oh the woes of being a graduate student), every so often I am unable to resist the call of cute things. Thus on my way to the Food Hall at Selfridges, I ended up stopping by Accessorize (a FANTASTIC store that is in the UK and some cities in Europe that sells all kinds of accessories- earrings, scarves, purses, necklaces, wallets etc) and the cosmetics section of Selfridges where I was sucked into the OPI nail bar.

Gloves- £12 from Accessorize.

I LOVE these gloves. I wanted gloves that were different than just your basic black gloves, but still classy, and I think these suit the bill. These gloves are a nice, deep purple, so it's a little more interesting than your basic black but not distractingly so. It's hard to see in this picture, but there is a little bit of houndstooth lining the inside of these gloves which was a nice touch. And of course, I ADORE the little bows along the side.

Earrings- £6 from Accessorize

This was a really great buy for me. I actually really needed a bunch of studs because I only brought my more fun earrings over with me from the States, but I can't be wearing huge earrings all the time! So these sets worked out to cost me roughly £2 per pair which was great.

Nail Polish - £10 from Selfridges

I have a major weakness for OPI nail polish, so I was incredibly happy to find a seller here in the UK. Unfortunately it's more expensive than what I'd play in the US, but I couldn't resist this color. It's called "Plugged-in Plum" and it is absolutely gorgeous. It's a lovely shad of purple, but it's not flat like my other purples are; this shade has a pearly effect to it.
