Day Dreaming: Chloe Enire Scalloped Sunglasses and OPI

23 January 2012

The postman has made my day today!

Yep, that's really how dull my days are right now.

Last week, perhaps because of how miserable the weather has been here (and the week-day boredom whilst all my friends and family are at work), I found myself gravitating towards items for my spring/summer wardrobe and ordered a couple of things. One of the things arrived in a stupidly large box for such a small item but they say good things come in small packages, and they're right!



Chloe Erine Sunglasses with gold scalloped detail.

Say hello to my new pair of sunglasses from Chloe's Erine line. They have gorgeous gold scalloped detailing which I think is quite unusual and pretty.

I look at sunglasses, like handbags, as investment pieces that I can keep forever. Sadly, Korea has a high luxury goods tax which makes sunglasses ridiculously overpriced there. Boooooo! So, when I spotted these with 50% off at The Outnet I couldn't pass them up. I'm teeeeeechnically saving myself money here.

The other stuff came today too but I'm going to show you those in another post. Despite the fact I've paid for the things it somehow feels like I'm opening a present as I tear into just delivered cardboard boxes. A bit like Christmas morning all over again.

I love that feeling...but....it's not such a good thing really though, it's addictive! I have to keep reminding myself that I did part with my hard earned cash for these things (even if I did just enter a few numbers on a computer screen from the comfort of my sofa) and they ARE NOT FREE PRESENTS!

I realised today how long it's been since I did any kind of beauty related post, I'm planning to do a post about my everyday make up routine soon but in the meantime here are my nails today, the perfect pale pink polish...
''Privacy Please' - OPI. Accent nail - 'Metallic gold' - The Face Shop (available in my blog shop)
Purple Hooded Sweater - Diesel c/o my brother's wardrobe. Sunnies - Chloe

The rest of my day was spent Gangsta chillin' (see the very, very cool picture above) whilst wearing my new sunnies in a hoody I stole from my brothers wardrobe today. Yep, that's right, I've hit a whole new level of boredom ....

..CUH-RAAAZY!!

Seriously though now...being alone with nothing at all to do sure is good for a little while but I'm actually getting excited about getting back to Korea and starting work again, too much time alone is sometimes not a good thing, it can send you a little loopy!  

Do you know what I mean? Please don't say that's just me!!

    1. Haha, I look like a bit of an idiot, but I was just messing around trying to entertain myself!

      Im always surprised I'm on almost 700 so weird when I think about the early days with just a handful of followers. You'll make it to 700 in no time, just keep doing what you do :)

  6. I love the outnet! They always have stellar alexander wang sales. The sunglasses are way cute, I wonder if they have the original unscalloped metal edge ones too! Those ones fit my face shape better although the scalloped edges are so pretty.

    The nails look great too!
    Happy blogging!

    1. They don't have the ones you're talking about I don't think but they do have quite a few different shapes and styles in their sale at the moment. I need to stay off the site otherwise I might end up with more!

    1. There was a Chanel pair last summer that I seriously loved. I tried them on in the store at least five or six times.

      I couldn't bring myself to buy them though because they were SO expensive in Korea. You should go for it if you feel like that about them, I sort of still regret not getting the ones I liked.

      The sunglasses weren't too expensive in comparison to most designer brand sunnies at full price really! Mind you, they weren't cheap either but they are just so pretty :)

    1. Haha, men don't appreciate how important shopping is to girls I don't think.
      He probably also doesn't realize how much stuff you could be buying, it probably still looks like your in full shopping mode! lol.

      I love scallop detail too, so much at the moment!

    1. Yep, they are aren't they! I love them. They are actually gold, they don't look very gold in the photos though. They're slightly brushed metal instead of high shine, maybe that's why.

      I haven't seen any with mixed metal but that would be good!
