As promised, here is a post on what I bought when I went shopping in London yesterday. I tried to refrain from buying too much as I have practically no more clothing storage space. I desperately need to clear out my wardrobe, and will probably add a few more items to my shop as there are so many unworn/never worn items in there. I'll probably do a 'new in' post for my shop in a week or so. Anyway, moving on to my purchases:
It looks like quite a plain black dress, but I love the leather detailing, especially around the waist as it is very flattering. It's a versatile dress which can be worn day or night, depending on what you pair it with.
I'd previously wanted to buy this jumper a while ago, but was unsure as to whether to purchase it. Over time, I forgot about it, but when I was in Zara I found it on a rack and fell back in love again. It was reduced to £30 so I couldn't not buy it!
I love these shoes, because personally I think they look stylish and practical. The grip is amazing on the bottom, and I love the chunkiness of the sole. I haven't worn them out yet, so I can't comment on the comfort, but I will let you know at a later date as they are sure to feature in an outfit post in the future.
There was so much indecision involved in purchasing these leggings. Eventually I caved in and bought them, because even though they're not the most versatile leggings, I just adored the glitter and pattern. They're very unique, and paired with a plain black top I reckon I would wear them in the day time, but they can easily be worn for a party too.
All in all, I was very satisfied with all my purchases, although I did originally set out to buy a different pair of shoes and some black denim shorts. It was eerily empty in Selfridges in the morning, but by the afternoon when I went to Topshop and Urban Outfitters there were a considerable amount of people. Generally, it was no where near as busy as I had expected; good for us shoppers, but bad for the businesses I guess. After shopping, I also went to the Valentino exhibition at Somerset House. It was absolutely amazing; highly recommended.
Have any of you bought some new items in the sales? If so, I'd love to hear about your purchases, and any comments on mine. I hope you're all having a wonderful week. Also, let me know if you prefer the pictures being larger like this in my posts :)
