Summer Buys and some Vintage Clothing.

Hi Guys, I realise I haven't been blogging regularly, I've just fallen out of the swing of it since being off of uni. I think it's just where I don't have a structure or timetable to my weeks and have got a bit lazy with my blogging. I do really want to get back into it especially as the weather is getting nicer so I can do loads of summer based posts like outfits and days out, I have created a list of posts that I've been meaning to do for a while so will start to make my way through them.

Onto the actual post... since my birthday I've had a bit of extra dollar to go out shopping, I hadn't shopped properly in months just due to a lack of money so I was rather happy when I managed to eek three shopping trips out. I'm not going to show everything as I've done outfit posts on several of the items or posted them on instagram so i've just photographed the most recent purchases as well as some recent vintage buys. The vintage pieces I actually got from a kilo sale that me and my friend Briony went to in London. It was an interesting experience, basically a large warehouse full of huge totes filledl to the brim with different types of garments but we got some good bits and it was a bargain!!! a kilo of clothes was £15, I got my three items for £10.

Lets start with the vintage.


  
 This dress is amazing, it fits so well and the material is quite thick so it holds in all the right areas. I don't really own much black so it's something a bit different. I don't know how clear it comes across in the pictures but it has some subtle details to it which makes it quite unique: the straps are split and because of this they sit close to the shoulders opening up the chest area, there are also two black sheer inserts under the bust which is different to the usual cut outs that you get which aren't very flattering if your not stick thin but these are a really nice detail on the dress, lastly it has a side split up the side which is bang on trend at the moment.

 The next find was this cute shirt, it is slightly oversized but I prefer a loose top and a tight bottom. I thought the print was adorable and summery, its also lightweight so I can still wear it in the warmer weather.

Lastly I got this midi skirt, I tried something on of a similar fit in Topshop and loved it but couldn't quite afford the £45 price tag, I really love the colours in the print and although it's not really a summery item it'll be perfect when it gets a bit cooler in autumn.
So there we go, three items for £10. I also got three really cute bows for my hair which I have been pairing with every outfit.

Onto the Topshop sale, I tried quite alot on but only ended up getting two items which are both so colourful and I can't wait to wear them.

First up, these gogeous cobalt blue trousers. They were reduced to £20 from £40 I think. They're a cigarette fit that come to just above the ankleand are really flattering. The jaquard pattern adds detail to them so I'd probably pair them with a plain white of black top of some sort.


I also got this skirt, It was scraming out to me from the rail and is just a bit lairy and different. I love the unusual print on it and the length is a bit different to whats about at the moment with it finishing an inch or two above the knee. It was a bit tight around the hips but opted for the smaller size as the next size up would have been too big for my waist so I'll just have to suck it in when I wear it.



I was a bit dissapointed with Bluewaters River Island as all their tops seem to be super cropped and I personally only wear a crop with highwaisted things so would have loved a normal length top but whilst looking around I found this dress an fell in love. I know I bought the vintage black maxi but this one is a bit more casual. It has a high neck to it which is a detail I really love at the moment and it also has a split, but unlike the vintage dress the split on this is more of a cut out which you can kind of see in the picture. It was a bit long but I can take it up if need be and it was only £22. Love it.

Lastly we took a trip to new look and this top was only £3 so I couldn't resist and the top is long enough to meet my highwaisted jeans and shorts. The stripes were also quite slimming and add something to a simple outfit.

So I hope you've enjoyed the post and let me know what you think,  will be  doing some outfit posts with them so stay tuned for that.
