New Purchases Show & Tell – August 2017

New Purchases Show & Tell August 2017

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

City Goddess Petite Wrap Midi Dress – 30 seconds in
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.

Next month…

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!
