The Cheap Monday Seamed Jumper

I have fully lost touch with reality. The temperature in Dubai has hit a low of 22 degrees celsius and so I am starting to feel....

...chilly.

For realz.

And I am loving it as this makes it the perfect opportunity to wear my Cheap Monday seamed jumper. This has been waiting patiently in my wardrobe for some time - and now the time has finally come.

In a way it's anti fashion. It's a bit shapeless - essentially a sack with strategic holes for head and arms but it is so damn cosy. I love the chunky knit finish, the soft non-itchy acrylic and the way it just envelops the body. This is a jumper to curl up in and enjoy some steaming mulled wine :)

Jeans: Cheap Monday
Boots: ASOS Aggie boots - Link!
Bag: Miu Miu

I also wore my new lipstick today - a new little YSL number. I think this has been out for some time and everytime I have meandered past the counters I have mentally clocked it.

Meet YSL Rouge Pur Couture in 37.







Such a perfect generic pink colour. Okay, it's nothing new and I could have lived without it in my collection but I consider this the season of indulgence and so just allow me this little treat :) I mean, look at it....how can you not deny something this light, glossy and pink! It's also a very similar colour to my handbag therefore making it a "must purchase" ;)

Finally...

How could I end this post without saying - have a fantastic Christmas!

I have the whole day off! Woo!

Yes, Christmas is more of a commercial, rather than official event in Dubai. That means offices are open as usual but shopping malls are decked out with lights, trees, and Santas.

Enjoy the day and I hope to see you all soon - in fact a quick post will also be waiting for you tomorrow :)

  6. I love the jumper during cold days. The comfy-ness exudes in all your photos. You're the perfect model for it, I tell ya! :) I'm totally sold!!! :D As for the lipstick, ofcourse you're supposed to indulge yourself once in awhile specially during this holiday. It's unhealthy not to gift something for yourself. :)

    MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS LAURA!!! WISH YOU ALL THE BEST!
