I figured now was a good a time as any to do a small write up on the things I purchased this month. Mostly because I really don’t think my bank account would appreciate me spending for the rest of the month. Well the 4 days we have left. November will be a completely different story.
I think most of this months items were sale bargains, and I’ve come to realise that in the past 6 months or so, I’ve become a sale junkie and am starting to repel paying full price for anything again. I really need to get over that.
There are a few other things I treated myself to this month but I either posted them in my FNO post or I’m too lazy to dig them out so that totally does not count. I guess this post counts for the past 2 weeks then.
I’ve totally been itching to embrace the tartan for this season but I just haven’t been able to find anything that I actually wanted to spend my money on (aside from those Topshop shorts that I fell in love with and cried about 10 litres of tears over because they did not fit my body type). I love the detail of the button connecting the straps to the bib and the rounded edges of the shorts. They do need altering slightly but overall I love them.
SALE: G21 @ Asda – £7
I LOVE LOVE LOVE playsuits, when my mum pointed this out online, I fell in love. The plain black material works so perfectly with the segment of colour framing the neck. It hits the current season with the playsuit being teamed with tartan. I literally cannot fault it and it looks so slimming on, hanging perfectly.
SALE: G21 @ Asda – £7
I thought this was so divine the moment I saw it, and for once Primark didn’t let me down. The ‘Burberry’ print is shoved down your throat in nearly every store you enter right now but I genuinely love it. It’s cute and girly but the colour can switch up the personality of your outfit and I simply adore it. The length is perfect on me, the back of the waistband is elasticated and the front it button down.
SALE: Primark – £5
Last month I bought a black and white spotted shirt from H&M but I wasn’t overly comfortable with the size (even though I bought a size smaller and it was still too big) and the material was really poor because it creased so so easily. However I went to the new Matalan store in Liverpool and found this cute shirt. It worked out the same price as the H&M one but the material is much better and I love it.
Matalan – £12
HOORAY FOR TOPSHOP’S MID SEASON SALE! I’ve been lusting after this jumpsuit for months now but I just didn’t fancy paying £38 for it. So when I saw it in the sale for £20, I had to add it to my basket. I was dubious about it, I thought it would cling all wrong and be too long (I was right there) and I thought it would look awful, but I had to try it regardless. When it arrived and I tried it, I was in love. I rolled the ankles up a little and realised that it was actually so flattering on me, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I picked a winner there.
SALE: Topshop – £20
Oh my days. I fell unbearably in love with these shoes a couple of months back when my good friend Carre (TheCarreConcept) wore them in an OOTD picture. However, I could absolutely not warrant the £62 price tag when I saw them as a pair of shoes that would barely be worn. Honestly, I nearly cried when I spied them in the SALE section on TS’s website. I’m glad to say that with these shoes, and that jumpsuit above, I have found my birthday outfit.
SALE: Topshop – £35
Normally I find store sales really stressful but Topshop’s excited me more than anything. I thought this little print crop top was so cute and it can be paired with so many things as well as being dressed up or dress down. I cannot wait to wear it.
SALE: Topshop – £5
Back in August, I contemplated buying these after wanting a new pair of jeans so bad. But like most things, I was unsure whether I liked them on me enough to pay the full ticket price, alas the sale was kind to me once again and I nabbed these jeans for half price! I love them, I love how casual and comfortable they are but also how chic and funky they can be. That darker denim side stripe is perfect.
SALE: Topshop – £20
Lastly, I thought it was time to treat myself to some new lipstick’s. After crying over LUSH’s ‘Drive’ purple lipstick, I decided a bold colour was the way forward for me. I’ve never been one for lipstick but it seems this year I have found my love for it and buying these was a good choice, much like the Topshop one I purchased at FNO.
I’ve been wanting to try out something from the Little Mix make-up range that they have done for Superdrug, a Collection collaboration and I had heard so many raving reviews on the Perrie lipstick, I had to buy it myself. Verdict? I BLOODY LOVE IT. Absolutely adore that colour. I also bought a gorgeous shade from Collection own range, however it looked more purple on my hand and more pink on my lips but I’m not complaining too much there.
Both: Superdrug – £2.99 each
So that’s my haul for this month, check back at the end of November to see what I purchased throughout the month and on my birthday trip to London. Let me see the bright lights!
Peace and love
