Today I thought I’d do something a little different on here. I don’t normally post things like this they tend to go on YouTube. But since I can’t do that and I bought a few bits and pieces recently I thought I’d share them with you.
I bought from three different sites. One I use more regularly than is healthy, one I’ve known about for a while but this is the first time I’ve bought from them and the third was a new find!
As I said I shop at Miss Selfridge way to often than is healthy for my bank balance, but there was a sale, and then I got 20% off my order so I bought the dress and two pairs of shoes.
I’ve needed a pair of sandals since last year, I spent most of my time in Converse which isn’t always great in the heat. I liked the look of these and when they arrived they lived up to the picture. I like the design because even though they’re the type of shoe I can’t normally wear the design means I can adapt them if I find I step out of them.
The dress isn’t really typically suitable for summer or spring because it’s black but I liked the design at the back as well as the printed design of the flowers. The material is really thin and I think it will remain cool to wear even when it gets warmer.
The pumps I couldn’t resist, I’ve never really worn shoes like these before but I really liked the look of them and I think they’ll be really nice when the weather start getting warmer. I liked the contrast between the colours I don’t tend to wear shoes any colour other than black so this is going outside of my comfort zone.
Everything 5 Pounds
This site I knew about from one of my friends who had bought from them before so I thought I’d check it out. There stock changes daily so it’s best to keep going back to see what’s new. When I went on last week these two dress caught my eye. I wanted to try and find some things that were slightly more colourful than I normally get. Being a drama student you get used to wearing black 90% of the time but when I have time off over the summer it’d be nice to wear some more colour.
The dress on the left is described as animal print but I liked that the design is much more abstract and I seem to be liking blue recently and I liked the combination within this dress. The dress on the right I think is much more casual and I liked the pattern on the fabric and the fact that the front panel is a lighter blue to the back.
Rings and Tings
And finally Rings and Tings. I actually discovered this website from Oh Hello Mango‘s blog. I had a look at it and I had to make a purchase when I went online. The dress was on sale and it’s not what I’d normally go for but I thought it was really pretty and would be wonderful for spring. And as I said before I’m trying to get more colours into my wardrobe and the green in this dress is different from what I normal go for.
There was loads of jewelry on the site that interested me but I’m trying to get more into wearing different types of jewelry so instead of getting single items I went for a pack that the site made up. I opted for vintage style and this is what I got. I think my favorite piece is the binoculars necklace. No idea what I’m going to wear it with yet but I will find something! The bracelets are the only things I’m not sure about, The one on the left if so large that to wear it properly I’d have to wear it about half way up my forearm. Whereas the other is elasticated so it’s slightly smaller and easier to wear.
Finally, the ring in the last picture was a free gift that I got for spending a certain amount and it’s a really interesting design, I’m looking forward to trying to incorporate these pieces into outfits.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and found it interesting.
I shall see you next time
