Recent purchases

After being a bit more careful with my money for the majority of September - yes, I kept to my word! - I took myself off for a spot of shopping on my day off on Friday. I had a few things in mind which I wanted to get - such as a new winter coat, which I am still looking for - but ended up with this lot instead [excuse the rubbish lighting].

The dress is from Zara and cost me £7.99! I later ripped the stickers off to reveal its original price - £35.99. It is the most perfect colour - I absolutely love it. There were only a few of these left in a size medium, and it is a little baggy on me so I might take it in a bit. But, helloooo - £7.99!!!

The cardigan is from h&m. They also had it in black but I don't have many white things so thought I'd have a change. I love the knit and the button at the top!

I actually got the jacket a week or so ago. I've seen many versions of that leather sleeve jacket. This one is actually from the kids section of new look - no shame when it's basically the same thing and cheaper! The age 14-15 fits me perfectly. It looks a bit crap on the hanger. But I really like it. You can kinda see how it looks when worn here.

The cat tee arrived this morning. It might be a bit in your face [quite literally], but I don't care. Again, this looks better on. I downsized and went for an 8, so if you're thinking of ordering it I recommend you do that as it's quite baggy!

I also bought a few little bits and bobs, such as the Louise Gray lipstick in Legend [stepping right out of my comfort zone with that!], essie bikini so teeny and a Twilight bath bomb from Lush.

Before I end this post, I've got a few things up on ebay in a bid to have a clear out/get a bit of extra cash together for Chrismas gift buying! So if you'd like to take a look, go here - all bids starting at 99p.

  7. I love that jacket - its always so satisfying when you can pick up something in the kids section isn't it? I can sometimes do that with shoes.
