A Sunday Sale Haul

A: Today, I went on a shopping trip with my Aunty – we were hunting for outfits and gifts for some events we both have coming up soon, but both got distracted by the sales and ended up having a lovely time. Our local department store had an amazing sale on and I got some real bargains.

Firstly, this navy patterned dress. It’s from N & Willow – not a brand I’ve heard of before but it’s a simple jersey, beautifully cut dress and will be perfect for work. Although I don’t have a strict dress code for work, I do like to look fairly smart. It’s a lovely thin and comfortable fabric too so I will be able to wear it most of the year, but I think it’ll look best with boots and tights in the winter. This was originally £50 but reduced to £11.50.
This black top is from a brand called ‘Girls On Film’. This looks a lot better on, I promise. The lace trim on the hem dresses up the simple black shift shape and I think it’ll look best with a black tube skirt and some statement jewels (to follow!). Originally £28, reduced to £7.50!

I then spotted this amazing/slightly horrendous kimono. I really do love it though, it has sequins, velvet and tassels – what more could you want!! This is from Quiz clothing and I cannot wait to wear it. £35 reduced to £10 – and my aunty got one too! She’s off to a wedding next week during the evening and has a black jumpsuit to wear so this will finish it off perfectly.

IMG_5472 This blouse is from one of my favourite brands; Vila. I loved going to the shop we got all of these from because they’ve stocked Vila for a while now – but this was the last of their stock as they are discontinuing the line! Sadly I didn’t get there quick enough to make the most of the reduced stock, but this blouse makes up for is because it really is beautiful. Admittedly, it doesn’t look much on the hanger or from the front – but the back is made from a huge pleated voile type fabric and it looks so pretty! I had to have it, and it was reduced to £10.50 from £35 – even better! Another purchase I can’t wait to wear.

Lastly, some jewellery. I can never say no to some new jewels but chokers are a first for me. I really like the idea of them but I think they might make my neck look a bit fat?! I thought I’d take the plunge though because these ones from Miss Selfridge were only £2.50 each, both reduced from £9. They’re really pretty too and both have two parts for them so I actually got four necklaces for £5!
My aunty then found this amazing statement piece from Wallis. This was originally £20 but I got it for just £5! And it’s so pretty too! I wear these sort of colours all the time so it will slot in perfectly to my collection.
Finally, three sets of gold coloured hoops from Miss Selfridge, originally £8 but £2 in the sale. Some perfect staple earrings to wear every day.

So that’s all of my haul for today – I haven’t been shopping in a while, and neither Chloe or I went at all during the sales because we are both trying to save – but I thought I did pretty well today with these bargains so didn’t feel so bad!

Annie’s Autumn Fashion Wishlist

A: Following Chloe’s wishlist last week, I’ve created a wishlist with all of my Autumn favourites. I love jumpers, knitwear, woolly tights and boots so this is my favourite time of year (well almost, technically it should still be sunny in September but its pouring with rain as I type this).

Louche Cesia Floral Dress – originally £55 but just £20 in the sale from Joy the Store

I really love this dress and cannot believe what a bargain it is. It is a little summery for Autumn, but team it with a bright knit and some navy woolly tights and I’d be good to go. I think it would be super wearable and the print is just too pretty to resist.

Louche Dovanna Jumper – £42 from Joy the Store

This is from the same site as the floral dress (you really need to go check it out, I basically want to buy everything from there), and I LOVE it. I love layering jumpers over dresses, and this would look so good with the floral dress I’ve chosen. It is a little on the pricey side, but it definitely counts as an investment.

Helen Berman Maribo Cable Knit Beanie – £40 from Urban Outfitters

A hat in an Autumn wishlist is a must, and this beanie is amazing. Again, it is a little pricey but I love it. So that’s totally allowed.

Road Trip Suede Desert Boots – £55 from ASOS

I’ve been after some boots in this style for so long and I love these so much. Perfect for dressing up an outfit or everyday wear.

Chloe’s Autumn Fashion Wishlisht

C: I know, I know… it is still August/Summer and we should still be sunning it up in our bikinis and shorts. Unfortunately it is cold and rainy here so I got excited and created my Autumn wish list! I love this time of year, especially in terms of fashion. Cardigans and bobble hats as well as being snuggled up in bed with a hot chocolate – what more could you want! So here are my four top fashion picks for the coming season:

*Obviously as I (unfortunately) do not own these items, these photos are from the companies websites 🙂

Urban Renewal Vintage Surplus Beanie Hat in Olive – £12 from Urban Outfitters. I love woolly hats and way too many. I do not have one in this amazing Olive colour though which is perfect for Autumn. I definitely need this. Especially to go with my new hair. 

Pins & Needles Chenille Tassle Kimono in Plum – £48 from Urban Outfitters. Knitted AND has tassels?! I haven’t got a maroon/plum coloured cardigan (kimono if you are a grown up) and it is one of my favourite colours! This is perfect for adding to just jeans and a tshirt to add some style or over a dress as I would wear it.

Dr Martens Castel Boots in Cherry Red – £100 from Dr Marten. I love Dr Martens and have wanted some for years! Then everyone started wearing them and I got put off. However, I love this pair so much I NEEEED them. A black pair would be more sensible… but as I hate stuff matching I would wear these with pretty much everything anyway.

People Tree Organic Cotton Smock Dress In Check Print – £65 from Asos. This dress is the perfect shape to flatter my figure. I would wear this with tights, boots and a cardigan (so probably everything else mentioned in this wish list) as the perfect Autumn dress. 

I hope you guys have enjoyed reading my wish list as much as I did making it! If it wasn’t for buying a house next week… I would have bought all of these already! Let me know what you think! #twolittleowls
