Does anybody else find themselves awake at two o’clock in the morning, unable to sleep and so on goes the laptop…. Thats me. If i’m ill, stressed, can’t sleep or even worse all three – I shop.
This week has been awful. I went to a conference which to be honest, was full of bullies and not particularly nice people, travelling and being stressed made me super ill and I got my first period in 2 years and so my card – and Adam’s has taken a battering. Thankfully I actually had the money there to spend, and I’m hopefully going to ask for some of the items as birthday presents…
So what did I buy?
Whilst at the Conference, I took quite ill and all I could think of was fresh bedsheets..and so I bought a cute new set from Primark for the bargain price of £16! I also got pillowcases and a fitted sheet, some jewellery, new pants, a headband and a few packs of their false nails which are awesome!
I also got the most amazing hipster coat for £3.99 in a charity shop!
Also that day I saw that Evans had launched a massive sale, including all the Cut For Evans range which I had been eyeing up for quite a long time, and decided to have a peek! I ended up ordering a few bits. I went for –
The Pink & Green V Neck Jumpsuit
I’ve never ever owned a jumpsuit, or a playsuit and I’m only just really getting into wearing trousers – however this jumpsuit really struck me and I’ve spent the last month or so deciding if I wanted it or not. When I saw that it was in the sale, I decided I might as well give it a try – and with my impending head shave coming up..i’m feeling brave!
Also, I ordered the blue shirt and trouser set, which could be bought and worn separate – but I decided to get both!
What attracted me to this set is how wearable and interchangeable I could see it being. I imagined wearing it as a set, or dressing the trousers up for a nice meal with a smart top, or throwing on a simple tank, jacket and pumps for a casual yet smart look. The shirt I could wear a million ways! Under dresses/smocks, with various skirts and jackets and trousers to create a whole array of different dressed up and down looks. I figured for £20, it would be a good investment! All three, with delivery to store (after using a 20% off code) came to just £52, which was a great saving.
I then popped onto my fave shop – ASOS Curve.
When I was at the Bonmarche store re-opening with the beautiful Kathryn, she was wearing a dress I had been eyeing up for a while – the ASOS Curve Sunflower skater dress. I had a few concerns though as I saw that it was buttoned down the front and was unsure if it would work with my bust!
As you can see, I had no problem with the fit – in fact it fit me like an absolute glove! I was so glad I could actually give it a “test drive” thanks to the lovely Kathryn, and seeing as I loved it so much, I decided to order it.
I also re-ordered a dress I ordered and sent back due to the sizing being tiny and not being able to button it on my bust! This is the button front denim dress.
I was pretty peeved with the fit of this dress, as the model makes it look oversized – when it isn’t. Why not use models that actually fit your clothes ASOS? ANYWAY! I re-ordered it cause again I thought it would be a super versatile piece, great for layering with different shirts, jumpers and tops – or even on it’s own.
I find it incredibly hard to find heels being disabled, and so I’m hoping that the Pembury platforms will work for me!
The heels come to 2.75 inches, with a 1.75 inch platform and so i’m hopeful! I live in flats, however sometimes I just want a little bit of height and a more glamorous shoe. Fingers crossed!
I had been eyeing up the vanity fair collection from Simply Be, however I was put off the jacket when I saw other people buying it as I thought the pink was too coral for what I was wanting personally. So I hunted online for a pink biker jacket and found a beautiful alternative.
I found this Pink PU Biker Jacket from Matalan, and at £30, it’s less than half the price of the other one I was going to order which was a nice bonus. The real upside is it is the exact pastel I was looking for!
I saw this cute white shirt for the bargain price of £14, and thought it would be really versatile in my wardrobe
It could go with the blue trousers, the denim dress and the skirt/jumper coming up next! There’s also loads in my wardrobe which would go with it! It’s such a great basic piece – I hope it fits! Adam bought me these two bits as part of my birthday present as my birthday is next month!
My final call was to Simply Be for more bits for my birthday and for two pieces I’ve been truly lusting over.
I’ve wanted a PVC skirt for months now, and so when I saw this one I KNEW I had to have it. This one is pastel and beautiful and I love it. I sized up as I know Simply Be can often be small fitting and I want this to fit me nicely!
I most definitely needed to have this jumper to wear with it, and it popped up at half price this week and so I knew I needed it! This will look so cute with a shirt under, or layered with the denim dress, or even thrown on with the blue trousers! It’s going to be a great “throw on” jumper which will go with so much. Adam kindly got me these two bits for my Birthday next month too! It seems early, but we’re organized and I didn’t want items to sell out!
So that’s my mammoth online shop this week, watch out for items cropping up as reviews on the blog!
One last note! I’m shaving my head for a local charity called Hartlepool Families first, and have set up a justgiving page for anybody who would kindly sponsor me! You can also donate via text by texting HCUT88 £ (Then any amount from 1-10) to 70070!
My hair is everything to me, however I want to do something drastic to support this wonderful charity – thanks!
