It's not often that I walk in to a store and HAVE to buy something because I really L.O.V.E it. Yeah don't get me wrong, I feel like I have to have a lot of things I buy because I think I love them. But L.O.V.E kind of love doesn't hit me often.
When I was shopping recently I walked into H&M and there on the mannequin in the center of the store I saw my new cardigan/shrug/wrap. Not too sure what it is actually but here it is on me anyway!
|OOTD - Outfit Of The |
So with a reservation, made by my lovely boyfriend, for one of my favorite restaurants I figured what better time for it (let's call it a cardiwrap for the sake of this post) to make it's debut. I paired the cardiwrap with a simple t-shirt, skinny jeans, caged back slingbacks, my favorite oversize black Bally bag and of course accessorized with some girliness. Girliness in this case was a black ruffle hairband, assorted gold and black bangles and bracelets and my gold Vivienne Westwood pendant.

I like this look a lot. It was perfect for a chilly Autumn night out. It was casual enough for dinner but still glam enough for a bar afterwards.
Absolute best thing about the outfit: It hides a multitude of sins. Namely in my case my bum and tummy.
Translation: I could eat lots of yummy food and it didn't matter if my skinny jeans ended up a tad too tight!
So with the security blanket of my literally blanket like 'cardiwrap' I indulged in lots of delicious Saturday night eats and drinks. Yes, the diet is still on! Actually I lost another pound this last week. But I know from personal experience that a cheat day once a week can be beneficial to your metabolism and mental state. You just have to make sure once a week doesn't turn into twice and then three and four! Which I've also learned from personal experience. Haha!
|Prawn, potato, artichoke and sun-dried tomato salad to start - not too naughty and very tasty.|
|Ruccola and Prosciutto Pizza - My fav pizza topping.|
|Lobster and lemon zuchini risotto! So so delicious!|
|My date for the night <3|
|'Coral Melon' Estee Lauder Lipstick on Moi who is getting a little giddy and silly on Champagne. Can't you tell?|
The only thing that isn't MAC is my lip color which is Estee Lauder All-Day Lipstick in 'Coral Melon'.
|Can you now?|
|Cafe Seventy Four - Cheongdam, Seoul.|
|I drank cosmos. <3|
|The boyfriend favored a less feminine drink choice for once. His favorite drink is a June Bug. Don't tell him I told you!|
|Giddier with the pretty light display made of bottles of water.|
|The bottles are filled and stuck in the wall at their cap side and lit up from behind. Looks amazing don't you think?!|
Upon leaving I saw this sign outside the bar's entrance...
It's seems kind of ironic to see this sign at a bar. More so that I should see it when leaving. When I've already drunk several cocktails thereby guaranteeing a not so fresh morning at all.
Perhaps ironic is exactly what they're trying to be though.
So what did you do this Saturday night and did you have a 'fresh' morning or not?
