I Went Into Topshop For A Look & Came Out With A Haul...

The short story here is that I got fed up and went to Topshop (holla at me if you're an emotional shopaholic too...). This wasn't all at once mind, I just seem to keep on dipping in and out of Topshop finding lovely things to purchase! Having lost a stone, and with most of the weight going from round my tummy (and fingers, strangely enough!) I've found I can now fit back into Topshop dresses :D This makes me super, super happy (but my bank balance weeps silently in the background).

On account of this I bought three items of clothing, two dresses and a top. The top is a fabulous oversized dipped hem dark navy/grey version of one I already have in white, and it's fab to just laze around the house in. My two dresses are gorgeous, this fab white lacy one which will be perfect paired with the brown sandals above in the summer, and this pretty rose print one I found in the sale for £20! I also picked up some knickers in their 3 for £10 range, two pairs I bought for my mum, and then a pair of floral lacy ones for me. 
Then I made my way to the accessories and makeup stands. I could have bought a million different pieces of jewellery, but I find Topshop jewellery quite expensive so I chose one I've had my eye on for a long time, this fabulous silver and rose gold triangle necklace. Like every other girl at the moment I'm loving rose gold, it's the perfect colour for a non gold lover like myself to dip their toes into the gold stream. I couldn't find it online, but it should be in store for £14. 

I couldn't pass by the Topshop makeup stand without trying out some of their nail polishes (currently on two for £8 ladies!). I'm obsessed with holographic nails at the minute (post coming very soon) and ended up purchasing two holographic colours, the silvery blue 'Moondance', and the pinky lilac 'Wistful'. I then bought 'Milkshake' and baby pink shade I've been lusting over, and 'Green Room' a fab jade green. I also got my first ever Topshop lipstick, I fancied a go at what I call 'marshmallow lips' and got the shade 'Saint' (beware that swatch online though, it's definitely not a pink in my opinion) which is a milky nude colour. 

And that was what I bought. Of course I could have parted with a lot more money, in fact I would like this dress very much and it'll probably find its way into my basket soon...

What have you been buying lately?

  2. Ooo I love the Milkshake nail polish. It's so pastel, sort of reminds me of candy. I saw Kandi wearing a similar version on The Real Housewives of Atlanta (I don't know if you get that over there) and thought "I need that!"

  12. Love the rose print dress & sandals, and would just like to mention it is so helpful when bloggers put links to the things they've bought. Nothing more frustrating than seeing something you love in a haul but not being able to find it on the website - so thank you! :) x

  13. Thats always the case, you go in just to peruse and you come out with the biggest load of shopping, that's why my boyfriend meets me from work so I don't go into shops on the way home :P.
