two for tuesday.

It's Tuesday, potentially a more depressing day than Monday in my humble opinion. Tuesday seems so far away from the upcoming weekend and the hazy memories of the weekend past have long since vanished. Domino's Pizza clearly decided to cash in on the Tuesday blues when it launched it's 'Two for Tuesday' buy one get one free deal and what better way to cheer up the day than by eating yourself into oblivion. Fortunately for my waistline, tonight my Dad made me a lovely dinner of steamed sea bass with ginger and spring onion therefore I am now feeling virtuous rather than experiencing the dreaded Domino's downs. However since it is a Tuesday I have decided to give you 2 blogs in one.

As I mentioned in a previous post last week was pay day, having not had a decent wage for the last year or so it is safe to say I went a little bit crazy. First on my hit list was something leather, I love leather and it is all over the shops this season however it always comes at a price. Already the proud owner of a studded black leather skirt which I picked up in the Topshop sale a few years ago I know that a little bit of leather can give every outfit a fashionable edge without seeming too try-hard. This time round I went for buttery soft tan leather shorts. Short enough to be sexy but with a cut which meant they had a classic finish when teamed with a silver silk shirt, I want to wear them with EVERYTHING which is definitely the sign of a good buy!

I also felt it was my duty to buy a new pair of shoes, a girl can never have too many pairs and working in a shoe shop is torture. I generally find that I pick out a pair of shoes that nobody else really likes and try to win them round, this is not only a personal challenge but I like the fact that my taste isn't necessarily the same as everybody else's. This time last year there was a Rocket Dog ankle boot in stock which caught my eye; wedged and lined with fleece there was something about it that I thought was appealing however I am ashamed to say that the Rocket Dog label put me off as it is a name more commonly associated with dowdy mothers and their pre-teen daughters. This year however I could not resist and I bought the boot in tan. Perfectly on trend for this season they have already carried me, fall-free, through two nights out although unfortunately the relentless Edinburgh rain and grimy nightclub floors have left them a little marked. Nothing a suede brush can't fix though, I am a shoe professional after all!
