Whats a girl gotta do with her pay check...

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! 
I certainly had! Had a bit of time to relax and see family and I was spoilt rotten with presents. I got Body by Burberry - a lovely perfume in my opinion. Also, I still had a gift certificate left from my graduation last year and got myself the Inimitable Intense mascara by Chanel (SO good - my #1 mascara) 

So the title explains it all. Got my pay check & accidentally surfed to www.topshop.com where I accidentally threw some of my cravings in the shopping basket and accidentally clicked BUY BUY BUY - OOPS?!

Got myself the Topshop Ambush Boots a.k.a. the Acne Pistol Boots wannabees. Actually - I think I might like the Ambush Boots better than the Acne ones...

Also got a concealer make-up brush and the eye crayon in sunshower.. I quite like Topshop make-up.

It's all in the (leather) details

1. Leather Sleeve Jumper (brand unknown) 2. Leather Sleeve Jeans Blouse (brand unknown) 3. Rag & Bone Crawford Suede and Leather Sweater 4. Rag & Bone Baxter Leather-trimmed Wool Sweater 5. Marc Jacobs Leather Sleeve Jumper 6. Alexander Wang Leather Sleeve Jeans Jacket 7. Rick Owens Leather Sleeve Jeans Jacket 8. Givenchy Leather Sleeve Coat 9. Leather Cuff Jumper (brand unknown)

Yesterday evening I had to drag myself to the Kalverstraat (one of the busiest shopping streets of Amsterdam) for some last minute Christmas shopping - something that you'd rather not do on one of the last evenings before Christmas! Obviously I can never resist dropping into the H&M for a quickscan of new clothing and accessories - and my eye fell on the "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" clothing line which includes a nice dark navy jeans jacket with leather sleeves - unfortunately it was no longer available in my size... 

In the mean time I will drool over some of these other partly leather/partly -insert any other fabric- items!

Also quite obsessed about the partly leather/partly wool scarf that Sabrina from Aftrdark is wearing here D.I.V.I.N.E.!

Happy Holidays y'all!
