New in Dresses

The sun finally came out, so I was able to take a few shots of my new dresses :) I need to find something to wear underneath the purple dress as it is so sheer, hence why that dress isn't in this post. 
Both dresses are from Asos.

Sneak Peak Dresses

So I thought I'd give you guys a sneak peak of the dresses I bought recently. As you can tell by my last image the weather isn't great, no sunshine. So I haven't been able to take photos of myself wearing them outside (which is what I would like to do) so until the weather warms up a bit I thought I'd take a few shots of them on their hangers. The white cheesecloth maxi dress is from Asos, and the Aqua/green Dipped Midi Dress with Cut Out Neck is also from Asos.  
The lavender/purple asymmetrical maxi dress is from inlovewithfashion or LOVE. 
Can't wait to show you guys what they look like on !
P.S. the Asos dresses were sale items.

New Heels

Got my package from asos the other week. I bought two dresses and these heels. I love them. They have a nude patent heel and platform and the rest of the heel is a gold satin fabric :) 
The weather has been so cold lately, hence why there aren't any photos of the dresses I bought, but I shall get around to that soon.
I also made a purchase from LOVE, (First photo). I read Vivaluxury's blog post on this beautiful asymmetrical maxi dress. I went to the website and bought one for myself :) At the time of purchase they had a free shipping deal going on so I was pleased I didn't have to pay for shipping. The only thing I'm not pleased about is that there isn't any lining in the dress ! It's such a sheer fabric but on the website it looked like there was lining sewed into the dress, from what I could see in the images, so when I did receive my dress I was a bit put back. So now I am on a mission to find an underdress or bodycon dress that I can wear underneath it.

Vegas Volt Baby

I recently bought a new lipstick from MAC, called Vegas Volt. It was a mission to buy this shade. As some of you may know I went to New York and Toronto over the June/July period. Knowing that in the U.S. MAC cosmetics are much cheaper (U.S. - $14.50 and Australia $36) I planned to buy this shade in New York. When I was there they informed me the shade was sold out because it was a shade everyone was purchasing for the Summer. I thought okay, fair enough. Looked at other stores and also while I was in Toronto. The same thing happened, everywhere had sold out, so I, unfortunately just had to buy it here in Australia, for more than double the price it is in the U.S. and Canada ! Ahh well...
But I do love this colour, so vibrant :)
