Some New Purchases

What I love most about this time of year (despite it being freezing which I definitely don’t love) is the huge sales! Literally everywhere has sales and I like to shop them a couple of weeks after they start because everything ends up even more reduced. Not all of these purchases are sale items, but a few of them were super cheap anyway or I had discount codes. I haven’t bought all of these this week though, these are purchases that I have accumulated over the past 2 months, but haven’t shared with you yet.

Above, from left to right, is my new Topshop PU leather quilted biker jacket, a Topshop white sweater/jumper, Current/Elliott grey leopard jeans, Miss Selfridge burgundy and feather print leggings, Topshop necklaces and Kurt Geiger boots.

The jacket I am absolutely in love with! The quilting on it is amazing! The jeans have been on my wish list for a good few months and I finally saved enough for them. I always had trouble with printed leggings since most of the time they are made from polyester, so what I decided to do for the feather ones is put them over the top of the cotton burgundy ones and I can’t feel a thing! So excited about that! The boots will be great for wearing with jeans and the necklaces were adorable!

What items have you been buying over the holiday sales? I literally just save all my money for clothes purposes, I only sometimes eat lunch out maybe 3 times a month and I don’t go out to parties or anything like that, so all of my money does go on clothes. It’s a pretty bad obsession! Ha ha!

    Oh, I love the jacket and the boots! They are fabulous and I am looking forward to seeing you in these. 🙂 I have really splurged in this season, from blazers via shoes (lots of shoes) to dresses, I got a lot. But as you said – all for amazing prices. How could we say no? Have a wonderful evening1 xo, Christina

      Thanks! So what stuff did you pick up? It’s almost like it gives us an excuse to shop lol!

    Those Kurt Geiger boots are TDF! They are so versatile, and I actually think they are so great for the cold weather, because you won`t slip on an icy road as easily!
    Also like the other finds. Especially the white sweater by Topshop. Like the detailing on it!

    • January 18, 2012 / 7:12 pm

      Thanks Anna! That’s why I love the boots, they have such a strong grip on the bottom and you can wear them with thick socks, so I am excited to start wearing those out! The sweater is one of my favourites too, it’s so simple and classic but nice!

    • January 18, 2012 / 7:52 pm

      Thanks Ivana and ToVogueOrBust! I am wearing the leopard print jeans soon! And the jacket and sweater, so you will be seeing very soon!
