River Island Haul

I managed to haul myself to the shops (thank god) crutches and all, ahh the sympathy looks. I ended up having a nice splurge in River Island.

I tried on a beautiful brown/black patterned blouse, it was stunning. However it was £30 and then I saw this for £35;


Haven't had a new bag in ages. It was about time. It's laaavely! I'm really loving the blue and white stripes with brown leather, I've seen a few bags similar and I think they're gorgeous. I was actually surprised this was £35 because sometimes River Island can be really expensive for what you're getting.

I also (as it was quiet and therefore not stressful; no women hitting you with handbags) had a peruse of the sale rack and picked up these two little lovelies;



The wee faun t-shirt that says "where do we go from here?" was just £5 and you can never have too many t-shirts. The hoody was £12 and every time I'm going to T in the Park or any other festival I always realise I don't have enough big comfy hoodies, so this whilst being a bit too big (obviously they didn't have a 10 or 12, only an 8 or 14) will be perfect for festivals and bumming around the house.

I also picked up in the sale a pair of boots. I have the exact same pair in black/grey and wear them all the time and these were reduced to £15 so an absolute steal as they are normally £65.



They're so pretty :) I forgot how tight they were at the top when I first got them mine are all loose now. I wore the left one the other day, have to say I'm sure sure how much brown goes with black chunky moon boot. 

Last thing, promise, I got a new going out dress. I saw this online and fell for it. It was only £30 and my mother liked it too. 



I just really loved the cut of this dress at the top, and the lace. It's gorgeous and really nice on. It's lace down the back as well, it's a bit different to most of the lace dresses around that I've seen. I shall be wearing it to my friend's 20th. I'm hobbling to the pub (where if I get steaming drunk the boyfriend will be there to chivalrously carry me home).

That's all folks ;) xxx

    1. Yeah it's annoying like that, sometimes you things that really aren't worth the money. But then you pick up something like this that you'd expect to be so much more :) xx
