January Buys...

...With Polyvore Help!!!

Hello, lovelies!
Well, i have been thinking that as January was sales month and i did bought quite a few things, not much,but a few, i should probably show you some of the things i got. Most of them were bought on H&M (addicted,much? Yes!!) and two other pieces over Blanco. I also got a new cellphone (long story) and a great Sephora product that i will talk about in the end of the post.
So,let's see what makes part of Jo's closet now!

Light dress with ruffled shoulders from H&M
You may remember this one as the dress i wore in New Year's Eve(OOTD) and i really can't wait for summer to come so i can wear it without having to hide it under monstrous sized coats to keep me from the cold. I love the color, love how feminine it looks and how it seems so perfectly ancient greek (which may come in hand for a future college themed dinner/party).

Ruffled Blush Tunic from H&M
Aviator Jacket/Fake Leather from H&M
The jacket was bought last November and the tunic/dress was one thing i had seen a while back but as it hanged around the store i had serious doubts it would look good on me, i kept thinking i would look like i was inside a circus tent but a friend of mine made me try it and i felt in love with it and brought it home, knowing the price was so amazingly good. From 30€ down to 5€, great, right?

Ruffled Blush Waistcoat from H&M
I must say the color in this photo is so not faithful to the real one, it's much more pink powder toned and way lighter, perhaps more on the color of the shirt.
You may found this outfit a little simple, or a little plain but thuth is that this is what i call my comfort clothing and the ruffles of the waistcoast seriously give the outfit a good twist making it more fashionable, but that's for me, sometimes i just wake up and pick up something fast and easy to pull on (actually,most of the times).
I used it on OOTD - Jo N. Further, you can have a better idea of the color in that entry.

Red and White Stripes with Ruffled Shoulders Cardigan from H&M
I do believe this was one of the most adorable cardigans i have seen in a good while. Truth is that if it wasn't for the shoulders it would be a plain cardigan, but seeing it on sales i couldn't help myself but to bring it home. It's comfortable, warm and perfect for those colder spring days and it goes well with so many things, skirts, jeans, shorts, everything.

Black Dress with Sequins and Tulle from Blanco
Uhm, so this past weekend Blanco had a load of products on prices from 1€ up to 4€ (maximum) and my mother told me that and i felt so frustrated that i had not gone out with her, so in that same day at night (Saturday) and after attending the mass (celebrating 1 year since my grandmother's funeral) i asked my parents to stop by the mall for a very quick trip, where i was actually trying to find a pair of boots, knowing they coasted only 4€, but seeing none i liked i ended up with this dress in my hand. I must admit,i am not the biggest fan of shimmery things, sequins and such but i found this dress too good to be left behind, or maybe it was the price, but trying it on i could already imagined myself going out, clubbing and having fun with this little piece! The underneath tulle makes it open up a bit and it looks gorgeous and so very simple still.

Layered Three Tones Pink Dress from H&M
Blush Pink Flats with Tulle Decoration from Blanco
So, the flats were a gift from mum, in that amazing sales weekend and coasted only 2€. They are so very comfortable, so pretty and mother thought it would go great with most of the things i got this month.
The dress is from H&M, marked from 35€ down to 7€ and i had to try it because i love dresses, i love the colors, i love ruffles effect and layers,and my mum approved of it and i had to make it mine and so i did, i brought it home and it's now waiting to be used for the very first time, hopefully some time soon!!


So, this was it,the best things i could buy with the short money i had and that still with serve me so well for summer and spring. Yes,this time i thought to think ahead and buy pieces will like to wear in warmer times. I am very focused on pink,blush and nude tones because i do believe they fit me, they are so very feminine and i think they will still very much wearable in this next season.
All the other items i got to illustrate the looks are things that i would totally wear, you can easily replace them with items that are not from high coast brands and that are very efortless to found around in stores such as H&M,Blanco,Zara,Primark and others.

Oh, now the Sephora product.
Sephora Brand FACE Concealing Blemish Pen - Combination To Oily Skin
I have used this one a few years back and only some weeks ago i happened to enter a Sephora store and see this one, and for 4€ only (i think the normal price is 8€ or so). I recommend this product like imensely, it's one of the greatest things you can buy to cover and dry the zits and other skin problems you can have. It's very easy to work with, easy to blend and it's for me the greatest concealer i ever had so far.
This has been for this past days, alongside Vaseline for my lips, my best face friend and i couldn't be any happier. One single thing i must say is that i bought the lightest tone they had but still i wish they had a shade down from it,my skin face is extra pale and although it blends well i believe that a lighter tone would go even better.

This is about it,my dears. What do you think?

  2. Raquel, acredita ou não mas lembrei-me de ti,aco que me fez lembrar imensamente o teu estilo,apesar de amar vestir-me assim também, porém faço-o menos vezes do que aquelas que gostava.
    Sim,acho que sim.Em parte acredito que começo a encontrar o meu estilo pessoal em vez de saltar de estilo em estilo em cada época que passa.Verdade seja dita,acho que a parte dos folhilhos me faz recuar até aos tempos em que era pequenina e tinha vestidos com folhinhos e pregas e coisas amorosas!

  3. AND AGAIN! :D
    I almost got the blush tunic! LOL

    Really, we're probably connected or something, because imagine if we kept buying the same things... it'd be a recipe for disaster everytime we met. *headdesk*

    Or then again, maybe not. Anyway, nice looks, pal!

  4. Oh dear Rafa!!
    I swear,i get all the things you nearly bought.

    It wouldn't be,you know why? Because we would combine them differently,because physically you are half of what i am and you would look totally different and still if we did look alike,it would still be awesome!!

    Merci!!
