I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny. -- Coco Chanel

Just a little something...

Im always shopping, I can't help it. It's not like im buying expensive things all the time- I rummage the shops in order to find some nice things that are either in the sale or just a good price.

I bought a lovely new top in New Look the other day and just thought I would share it with you. I combined it with a black polka dot skirt from Miss Selfridge and some cute berry red pumps, that were £2 in the childrens section in New Look...

It was raining slightly over the weekend, which was an excuse to get out my gorgeous new brolli that has a bright red rose for a handle- I had to have it!

I also went into Top Shop to find the lovely red leather belt I had wanted, was in the sale (originally £30). It came up on the till as £14 but the shop assistent marked it down to £5 because she thought that was too expensive for the sale! With student discount £4.50! Very impressed Top Shop :)

Dress, £17.99, New Look
Belt, £5, Topshop
Shoes, Office

You can't really see the shoes in the previous photo, but they are my favourite flats that I bought in the sale in office. I thought the crocodile print and heart made them stand out, as opposed to plain black patent.

Have you bought anything nice in the sales lately?




  1. New Look's children section has some really cute items! Really like the second look :) x

  2. I know! =) I can only fit into the shoes, but the clothes are mostly too small :(
    you probably notice I wear alot of new look haha but I work there in holidays so I get 50% off and you can find quite a few cute things in there, espeically the limited edition stuff!

  3. Aw 50% off is awesome! The age 12 sizes fit me lol, and I would be very tempted to buy them.

    Wow we have so much in common!! Thanks for stopping by love x

  4. i love the sales! its basically the only time of the year when i dont feel guilty about buying things, haha. i have that new look top, so pretty. and that is definitely a topshop bargain! xx

  5. That top is so adorable, I love it! I've seen it before at New Look but never tried it on, you're making me regret that because it looks so cute on.
    I didn't really buy anything at the sales besides a coat from UO... ah well.

  6. Some great sale bargains! Those office shoes are gorgeous xx
