Trick AND Treat

Us ladies always have plenty of tricks up our sleeves when it comes to our appearance. Whether it’s the latest Mac blush to make those cheeks more rosy, a little bit of self-tan to maintain an all-year-around glow or a pair of false lashed to make those eyes stand out for a show-stopping effect... We know all of the above and plenty more and we are not afraid to put those tricks into everyday practice.

The most important thing is that the so-called “tricks”, which actually are nothing but guilty pleasure treats, can be implemented not only into your beauty and make-up routine but into your wardrobe too.  It can be anything from wearing your scarf as a top to turning your dress into a jumper (yeah you can do that and I’ll show you how soon!). As long as you let your imagination step in. So, in this post I want to show you one of my latest tricks…

Since being able to afford a £7000 Kelly bag is not a possibility even in my wildest dreams, I’ve decided to experiment with my Kelly wallet instead. It’s pretty large…Large enough to pass as a miniature bag, I thought. So I literally did just that! I have turned my wallet into a small shoulder bag! By using the cheapest golden chain that I could find on the high street (New Look £5  - not bad at all), I have tricked my wallet into thinking that it is something completely different from what it actually is. I was able to wear it on my shoulder all day, as it easily fits all the necessities of a wallet, like cards and cash and on top of that I managed to squeeze in my phone, my lipstick AND my house keys! I can basically say that I've treated myself to a new designer handbag without spending a penny, right? (£5 chain doesn't count!).

I have planned my whole outfit around this “bag”, and went for neutral colors and classic shapes in order not to take away attention from my new little creation (hehe). These “mum” jeans are quickly becoming my favorites, as they are so comfortable.  And those Primark heels are an absolute steal for £20 – especially considering the fact that I’ve had them for about 100 years and they are still as good as new. The blazer has been getting a few compliments on Instagram already and it is available to buy from the current H&M collection.

Let me know what you think of this experiment and share any tricks that you might have up your sleeve!
