New shopping buys

After a cosy weekend in, i decided to get some much needed shopping done, one reason for my room. I’ve been decorating and its finally finished, i will show you the results when ive got everything sorted, but another reason was well i just wanted to treat myself. Why not. Well first, i’ll start with the bargain! As you guys know i love a good bargain, i feel happy enough when  i get something new but if its a bargain, i feel a sense of accomplishment. i know i’m obsessed. Well this dress is from Bank Fashion. Unfortunately i cant find the dress online, but there was a few sizes when  i bought this. And the price? well it was £35 and i got it for £12. I love these shift dresses lately, i have a tartan one that’s shown on a previous post and they can be dressy or casual. For me i would wear this with leggings or tights and white boots or red converse with a leather jacket – perfect.


I have such a obsession with bags, is so bad! if i don’t stop  i think ill need a wardrobe dedicated to them, and whats even more dedicated is that there pretty much all River Island. I’ve always loved their bags, there just so pretty and practical. And when i spotted this i knew i just had to get it! I love bright yellows, especially this zingy colour its so bright and illuminous.


Whats even better is the colour block colours at the front and sides! It reminds me of a seaside ice cream, lemon or strawberry haha. Its a great size too, not too big or small. I’ll be using this for everyday use when i go shopping ect. and maybe University if i don’t have to hand anything in, my bag usually full of work stuff. This bag was £40 but i’m sure it’ll be worth every penny. Check it out here.


As you all know by now my favourite colour is blue and specifically, duck egg blue. Well, when i come across this dress from Warehouse i ran straight over to it. It really caught my eye and it fit so nice on me. The picture just doesn’t give it justice, the material is so nice and thick you can tell the quality. It is also cut at the bottom and has a small open back. Its great, another shift dress style but this is definitely a going out dress, and or £55 it was one of the dearest but it was worth it with student discount. I’ve attached the link here so you can see it, from the back and side. Its a 50’s style dress for sure.


Another bargain! and from Topshop this time, this dress similar material to the other two was only £25 in the sale, as you can see it looks like a top and skirt attached. I thought this dress would be perfect for the summer with the fuchsia pink and orange underneath and at the back. The style of this very much still in as well so i though this is great that it was in the sale. It really pulls you in as well which i like, and great length to i cant wait to wear it. This isn’t on the website either unfortunately.


Another from Topshop, this is definitely my favourite. I love a play suit and this one is so pretty on! Really pulls me in and it has the same style as the dress above, with the top and shorts being together.  This is called tiered. I love the colours and i can wear a mixture of heels with them. This was £46, a little steep but definitely worth it its so silky and goes great with a tan. Theres nothing really more i can say its just so great on, cant wait to wear it like the others.  Click here to buy. 

IMG_1628Finally we have the bright luminous orange jumper by Chelsea Girl from Topshop. My mum picked this, she loves orange clothes and this would be great with a pair of shorts or high waisted jeans for spring/ summer with it being a crop top. Its so soft and fluffy and for £15 i couldn’t refuse that price. This is the normal price too not sale, i thought that was so reasonable. Chelsea Girl are so good on price, and i was expecting it to be like £25-30. Click here to buy.


I treat myself to some bargains and some clothes i just simply couldn’t refuse. I hope you like these as much as i do i cant wait to wear them. Let me know what you think of them, or what i should get next?
