So, the plan was to find a dress and maybe a nice pair of high heels. But obviously I can't just go and get a single dress and a pair of platforms, oh no, I got two dresses, a pair of high heels and a bunch of other stuff!
The other day when I went to the mall to meet my best friend for a catch-up and a coffee, afterwards we decided to go shopping. Just you know to have a look around the sales. But in said sales were some purchases I had made the month or so before, but for full price.
Don't you just hate when this happens?
And so I took the vow not to buy anything full priced, and to only purchase things in the sale! I am happy to say that so far I have kept this vow and most my purchases minus the shoes (that were only from Primark) were in the sale. Go Chloe!
This post is going to be a little of what I have brought, from where and how much for.
Sorry if some of the information isn't completely correct. Some of it was on sale and/or were special offers!
The photos aren't that brilliant, but it is so hard to photograph clothes when you are used to photographing food ha ha. But like I have said in previous posts I really want to dip into vlogging, generally about everything in my life, nothing in particular. So I am excited and nervous to begin that soon! Like I have also said before it would be easier to show my purchases through short vlogs rather than a blog post. Ideally I will be starting them this month.
So...without further a do, let's get cracking :-D
Coral Lace Dress from Primark, 50's style bag purchased from a Charity Shop (originally from Marks and Spencers).
It's a little loose around the middle but nothing a belt can't solve. Dress, £7 and Bag, £4.50.
I love this dress and love all the different patterns and layers it has. I can't wait to where it with the shoes coming up in this post.
Told you the photos were bad :D Dress, H&M £10.
I love this skirts they compliment any shape and size and I have seen a variety of people wearing them lately.
The Black and White One, T.K Maxx, £10. The Black One, H&M, £12.99.
Floral is one of my favourite prints this season and always.
Brought the studs separately from Topshop. They are so handy to add as a final defining detail onto stuff.
I have been wearing this tucked into skirts and shorts, and in the winter I can wear in by layering it and wearing with jeans maybe. (Asda George) but brought from a charity shop. I've been going since I was a kid and it's amazing the gems you discover in there! £1.49.
Meh this shirt looks horrible here, but let me reassure everyone, this no-sleeve shirt was a bargain, £3 and the colour is actually a lot brighter in person (it's not a person Chloe!) And it's more orange than Pink. The high-low hem is perfect to wear with leggings too.
I brought this thinking it was a S/M but it turned out to be a M/L. And I have just been wearing it to doss in, not for anything special.
These heels make me want to bounce up and down. Love Love Love these. Primark, £16. They need no more words :D
I really needed some new running shoes and these do the trick. I am a creature of habit and I always pick Asics :D I mean these are only my second pair but I really like the fit of the brand. I brought these a couple of months ago and they were £55. Not cheap but definitely worth it. My last ones lasted me 2 and a half years.
This next 12 months are going to be all about saving instead of splurging, especially since I am leaving University next June. I've always been a saver but now I have to be even more concious of my pennies, which is hard for me and the reason I want to get back down to Cheltenham so I can get a job.
Hopefully this happens sooner rather than later.
