Hello m'fellow Trustinvoguers and newbies! It's that time of year again. Red signs in every shop window, crazy shoppers and above all else - DISCOUNTS. I'm talking clothes, furniture, accessories, etc! Everyone knows that between Boxing Day and pretty much till the end of Janurary is the time for the crazy sales. I went shopping for the first time ever on boxing day in Leeds, and it was MADNESS. A girl banged into me, thought it was my fault and screamed her head off. Another woman got jumped on by Security in House of Fraser for stealing, and some fainted in Primark. Literally. It was absolutely mental, and usually I can't shop when it's that crazy. However, during the coming weeks I did find a few bits here and there, and it's just sort of a collective haul of them all! First of all, I'll start with the fab Primark.
I absolutely adore this Floral Peter Pan collar top, it's perfect for the transitional stage from Winter to Spring, and also the collar can be used in various ways for layering with jumpers. I'm not usually attracted to some floral prints, as they can look tacky. But surprisingly I LOVE this, it's just subtle and cute. It's also very vintage-looking, and I'm also loving the white edging on the sleeves, which just cuts it up a little bit.
Shameless selfie alert! and also excuse the uni poster haha! This is a full-on shot of me wearing the top, I find that I love wearing it most with my cream cardigan from River Island. I do warn you though, this top is very sheer and you have to wear a skin coloured vest top underneath it. That's the only slight downside, and Although this top wasn't discounted, when I saw it I knew instantly that I just HAD to get it. It was only £8.00, and I wasn't going to miss out. My heart necklace is from H Samuel.
As you can see, I'm getting pretty obsessed with all things to do with Peter Pan collars! Again, I love this item, it's a staple piece, you can wear it with almost anything and for any occasion too. Not only that, I find these black and white Peter Pan collar tops look really smart and trendy, perfect for someone who wants to dip their toe into the fashion world without dressing too over the top. Like the one above, this also cost me just £8.00.
Although I didn't buy this next item myself, I did get it for Christmas, and it's from Primark so I might as well include it! I got given these gorgeous Disney Minnie Mouse slippers. I absolutely adore them, they're called 'cosy socks/slippers', and they're so fluffy inside it's unreal. I love wearing them, especially at Uni when it gets so cold and your tiny radiator is rubbish! These cost around £2.00/£2.50.
Ever had a homeware addiction? Yet in Cushions? Well, I think I do. I find that I keep wanting to collect more and more cushions/pillows for my Uni Bed. Soon enough it'll probably end up being covered in them! I bought the pink, fluffy heart cushion a while back - probably around October time. I loved it and used it as a pretty good headrest for a few months, as Uni don't have the luxury of having a head board! I then saw the white one, and I knew I just HAD to get it to match my other one. So I did! Both of these cost £3.00 each.
What is it with me and collars on tops?! Haha definite obsession. I picked up this beauty from River Island, for just £12.00! How amazing is that?! I thought it was a right bargain, to say River Island are quite expensive and I believe this top was at it's original price too. It was rather lucky that I spotted it actually, it was just sort of hanging there on it's own, I looked at it expecting it to not be my size or be expensive still or not even in the sale (as it's reasonably new in) - but no! Miracle. Was my size, and was in the sale! I couldn't pass on that!
These two are the last bits that I picked up to date. The one on the left is from none other than Dorothy Perkins. I know what you're thinking. Dorothy Perkins?! Isn't that for old women!? NOPE. Let me tell you this, I didn't expect to see such nice clothes in there, and I saw the camel coloured shift dress with black leather lining. I just thought it was really different, and looked ultra-smart. Not only that, that colour is bang on trend right now, especially for the Spring Season. It cost me just £12.00. I also picked up this lovely purple/burgundy coloured long jumper from New Look for just £11.00. It was an absolute bargain, I needed some new jumpers and I didn't really fancy buying some poor quality ones from Primark. This hits the nail on the spot, it was cheap in the sale, and it keeps me warm - bonus!
What do you guys think to what I got?
Did you pick up anything nice in the Sales?
As always, let me know!
Lot's of love, Hannah xoxo
