Here’s what I wore Friday (night) December 14. I went to a Christmas party with a group of friends, and I had a great time. I wore this festive suit-inspired look with pops of red.

I’ve purchased a few pieces in different sales recently, and I thought I would share them with you.
I’ve talked about the clothing brand VRS at several occations. It’s a brand carried by a Danish chain of supermarkets. Somestimes you can find some really nice pieces. I had actually tried on the green dress before and didn’t buy it initially, but when all clothing at my local supermarket was on sale last week, I decided to buy it. I think it’ll be the perfect dress to wear on Christmas Eve (in Denmark we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve). I also found the red dress and thought it would be a great holiday party dress. Lastly, I bought a stripy roll neck top, because you can never have too many roll neck tops or stripy tops for that matter.
I’ve also purchased a few pieces from Asos. The rainbow jacket is from Daisy Street, and the rainbow scarf is from Brave Soul (can you tell that I like all things rainbow). And obviously I couldn’t resist the adorable T-Rex socks.
Lastly, I ordered two pairs of shoes from Zalando. I’ve been craving both of these pairs for a while, and when both pairs were on sale, I had to get them. I’ve been wanting a pair of white boots for a long time, and I just loved these ones from Topshop. I love the elongated shape and the wooden heel. I absolutely love my classic white Nike Cortez, and I thought these lilac ones were really nice. There was only one pair left at the time I bought these, and they were in my size. It was meant to be.
Here’s what I’m wearing today (December 13). I bought this vintage Christmas cardigan all the way back in January, and I finally got to wear it. As if my outfit wasn’t festive enough with the cardigan, I’m also wearing my WHAM! – Last Christmas T-shirt.

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m wearing the Jouer Funfetti lip topper on top of my favourite lipstick, and I think it looks beautiful and very festive. As I wrote in my recent make-up haul, I’m not very fond of lipgloss, but this gloss was very comfortable to wear.

Here’s what I’m wearing today (Tuesday December 11). I don’t remember the last time I posted an outfit on the same day as I wore it, but I obviously want to post my chrismassy outfits in December. My Christmas jumper of the day might be a bit too tacky for some people’s taste, but I love it!

Leading up to Black Friday, Beauty Bay had a ‘bragging rights’ sale, and I bought a few things.
I finally decided to buy the Jeffree Star Androgyny eye shadow palette. Jeffree Star eye shadows are some of my favourites, and the shades in this palette are gorgeous. I’m really looking forward to create lots of different eye looks using this palette.
I already have one of these Milani blushers, and it’s one of my favourite blushers, so I decided to get a second shade. I chose the shade Blossomtime Rose, which is a warm peachy colour with a nice sheen to it.
Lastly, I bought one of the Jouer Long-Wear Lip Toppers in the shade Funfetti. I’m not into lipgloss, but this just looked so pretty with all the different colours of glitter, so I thought I would give it a go.
Here’s what I wore Friday December 7. Christmas outfits don’t necessarily have to be all red, green, and white. Purple can be a christmassy colour as well.
