A whiter shade of pale

I completely forgot that the other dress I had ordered before Christmas had arrived (it only took 4 weeks!).
I thought I'd wear it today to motivate me to do some more revision, and so far so good (apart writing this post!). I also found my tartan trench coat which must have been lost in the depths of my wardrobe since me and my boyfriend moved house (which was about 5 months ago now). Another discovery was a vintage Russian fur hat. Wearing it makes me feel like a bond girl (not that I probably look like one, but hey!) and I'm sad that wearing it indoors is not practical....although it would make the library far more interesting in my opinion!

Dress - H&M
Tights - Primark
Clogs - Topshop
Tartan coat - Warehouse
Fur hat - Vintage
Bracelets and Ring - H&M
Foundation - Bobbi Brown (in Alabaster)
Gel Eyeliner - Clinique
 Lipstick - Rimmel (in Signature Red)

On a bit of a tangent, I completely love the foundation I'm wearing. I think most Bobbi Brown products I've tried are really good and this is probably the first time it has actually matched my skin tone!
It was quite amusing (for my boyfriend anyway) when I bought it, because I had one of the consultations that they do and the lady (who was very helpful) tried various shades on my face, but when she uttered "I think you're a bit too pale for the porcelain shade" I was in disbelief! I was happy to learn that they had a shade lighter than "Porcelain", bought it without a second thought and have loved wearing it ever since!
