so today i attempted part two of my sales haul, and had a thoroughly enjoyable experience, which believe me, is a rare occurrence in our local shopping centre.
01. one vital wardrobe staple for me is a black body to put under short sleeved vests and tops - i'm not a huge fan of showing my arms. i picked one up from primark for £5, bargain buy! from visiting lookbook.nu, i've been fascinated by the use of knee high socks with boots, so was quick to add these new look cable knit socks to my basket (£3.99). my new shoes should hopefully be arriving in the next few days, and i cannot wait to see if the combination does work.
02. despite declaring in the previous sales post that i do not shop at topshop, i'm impressed with their current range, and yet again bought some beautiful pieces from there. my favourite is a cropped cream blouse with oversized sleeves, which although comes with the price tag of £32, was simply too irresistible to walk away from. having just looked it up on the topshop website, i'm astounded at how plain and dull it looks - no irresistibility factor at all.
cropped button shirt (buttermilk) - £32
03. my favourite wardrobe piece is my topshop plain black tunic. i wear it with everything, and even wear it out with heels and big jewellery for nights out. topshop seemed to have discontinued the line, but replaced it with a similar shaped wavy detail tunic. it is exactly the same fit, and i have no doubt that the blue will serve me for all occasions too.
wavy detail tunic (navy blue) - £18
04. i always avoid topshop's two vests for £10 range, because the sizes look simply miniscule. however today i must have been feeling brave, and tried it on. although quite transparent, the colours were too good to miss, and i picked up a camel and burnt orange version. i eat my words, and tell any size twelve's out there to not be misled by the size of the garment on the hanger!
scoop vest - 2 for £10
perhaps the best part of the day was a visit to accessorize. following a disastrous shopping trip last thursday, i bought a bag from the shop which i needed to return immediately, it was such a waste of £20. i was filling in my details when the shop assistant asked me where my ring was from, because 'it looks so funky!'. i don't know about you, but i never have any idea what ring i'm wearing, so glanced down and, lo and behold, it was my prototype lego ring!
such a nice day; i hope you are having as much luck in the sales.
