And just like that – poof! – it’s my New Purchases Show & Tell August 2017. Every weekend was booked this month for me to attend some form of social do. So, to rise to the occasion (pun intended) I had to get myself all dolled up and prepared.
I attended 2 weddings, a hen do and a day trip up to London – I had no weekend free! The weddings in particular required some new classy robes and so I hope you don’t mind that this month will be heavily clothes related. (I did warn ya!)
New Purchases Show & Tell August 2017 video
Let’s do this in order… Here’s the dress I wore to the first wedding, at the beginning of the month. I made a big ol’ Asos order compiled of many dresses before whittling it down to this mint midi dress. In fact I still wasn’t 100% about it until I wore it on the day, then I couldn’t be more pleased. I felt super classy and it definitely has wearability for another summer wedding (maybe next year).
Little Mistress Petite Prom Skater Dress – 1:42 minutes in
The very next weekend we attended another wedding. I had yellow in mind for this one, although I made another big ASOS order that included a variety of colours. And so after another elimination process this pastel yellow prom dress was the winner. (Despite the fact I wasn’t keen on the embellishment and the bridesmaid’s dresses were also yellow. Oops.)
TopShop PETITE Pinstar Knot Mini Slip Dress – 2:38 minutes in
…and here’s the part of my New Purchases Show & Tell August 2017 post where my weakness for TopShop is clear to see. I wore this to the hen do I mentioned, but I would have bought this regardless. I love the tie-up and cut out detailing, it’s described as a slip dress too so I’m thinking I can wear a t-shirt underneath it in autumn too?
TopShop PETITE Floral Dress – 3:14 minutes in
I’d kept my eyes on this little floral number for a few months. When I saw the original price (around £40) I kept my cool and was like nope, that can wait until the price drops and drop it did. I whipped it up for £18; what a win.
TopShop PETITE Spot & Floral Print Jumpsuit – 3:55 minutes in
This wasn’t in the sale, but I got it anyway, can you blame me? Being a short ass I often miss out on jumpsuits as they’re just too long for me. Thank heavens for this being in the TopShop Petite range then, with a brilliant print to boot too.
Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation – 4:14 minutes in
Oh my god. This foundation. I now question myself on why it took me so long to buy it. The coverage is literally so smooth, even with applying with a brush (rather than a beauty blender). I implore anyone to give it a try.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – 5:04 minutes in
One final note/purchase, which is yet another book from the Kindle store. I think I mistakenly said in the video that this was in the monthly deals in the Kindle store for 99p, but it might have actually been in the daily deals. (As I can’t find it in the monthly deals now. Apologies if you’ve missed it.) I’ve watched the film, which I thought had a rushed start, but a better end half. So I thought I’d give the book a go.
As mentioned, David and I have made a very important purchase recently, which I haven’t included in my New Purchases Show & Tell August 2017. (Reason being is because I want to dedicate a separate video (and maybe post?) for this. Yes, it’s that important!)
Without giving too much away (which I probably already have), there will be
some a lot of purchases to be made because of this. All will be revealed soon…
I have not been asked, sponsored or paid to review any of these products. I just like to shop!
