Boden Westbourne jumper in pink. Had been cancelled so they honoured the price.

This in the flowery blue. The colour is great on me, but I can't decide if I am keeping it. It's a bit marmite.

Probably sending two Emma tops back. Again,can't decide if nice or frumpy.

I need some long, long vests this month, and at least one, probably two more pairs of Next relaxed skinnies. I put half my clothes in an ebay/out pile last night - it's the impending 40-ness this week that's done it shock

In March? Two tops from Kettlewell colors. I am thinking of adding another Hermes scarf to my collection though.

Yay! My favourite thread is back! Thanks OP.

So far, I have ordered these silver heels from M&S after seeing them in store and thinking they were much nicer in real life:

I've also got this denim mini on order as it's a basic that I somehow don't have in my wardrobe:

www.marksandspencer.com/cotton-rich-washed-look-denim-mini-skirt/p/p22269175

I got a Boden denim dress off eBay for a fiver.

I've ordered this pink boucle coat from Matalan which could go either way. It'll either be fab or dreadful:

I also got this grey bomber jacket from Next which is great. I sized down to get a closer fit:

Bought lots of lovely things for my 2 year old little boy in Zara yesterday including this cute little jumper:

God I love shopping...

@PrimalLass - I have a couple of these longline vests from Matalan. They wash well and I use them a lot for working out:

PrimalLass Mon 03-Mar-14 11:45:49

How funny, I have just put about 10 of those in my basket grin

PrimalLass Mon 03-Mar-14 11:49:01

Done blush

lurkingaround Mon 03-Mar-14 11:49:39

Bras from Figleaves, NONE of which fit properly. Grr. All going back.
And this bikini, which I only ordered because it was a knock-down price in their flash sale, blush, didn't think it was v nice, one of those 'it will do' buys. It is surpisingly lovely. A tad to big but I might fiddle about with a needle and thread.

Cant link atm but have a load of stuff waiting in my 'saved' bit on asos.

A pink tankini, 3 summery/ skater dresses in various floral prints, a belt, a bag (wont get it but its lovely and real leather £55) and a white plain LS top to wear under an itchy jumper.

I cant get all of them but def want a couple of the dresses and tankini.

Pink suede high heels from Primark £10 - such a gorgeous raspberry pink I couldn't not. Am imaging them with jeans and white T-shirts when the sun comes out smile

I am on the look out for a new wallet as mine is falling apart too.

Amethyst24 Mon 03-Mar-14 13:23:31

Nothing really in March, but most recent purchases have been another couple of pairs of River Island Molly mid-rise jeggings - I flipping love them, even in I was a bit "eek" at the price.
www.riverisland.com/women/jeans/jeggings/Dark-wash-Molly-reform-jeggings-647509

Also some African Red Tea cleanser from Ole Henrikson - it's the nicest cleanser I've ever used, feels like velvet on the skin.

And some Benefit Watts Up highlighter

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Mon 03-Mar-14 13:28:39

2 bottles of Revlon colour stay foundation.

A long handled shower brush.

Nina Ricci body lotion.

Lady speed stick deodorant , as recommended on MNgrin

Nothing very exciting so far...

mellowmocha Mon 03-Mar-14 13:29:02

This jumper from oliver bonas - perfectfor going into spring I thought

jumper

And this in the 20% off knitwear promotion, for wearing with skinnies, thought it looked a bit like the Cos one but obviously a bit easier on the wallet! Looks a bit frumpy on the picture but is actually really nice, its also navy not black like it looks here.

stripey top

Lash Adapt mascara.

These undies which are both beautiful and comfortable. V pleased with them. And a pair of M&S leggings for indoor slouching only.

This Dress

Making me look forward to Spring/Summer now! Also a brown belt but not v exciting.

I also bought Uggs the other day from that discount place linked to on here grin

A mia tui handbag, which came with a free crossover bag

A dark denim mini skirt from gap outlet

CointreauVersial Mon 03-Mar-14 17:46:53

Fauxfox - those shoes sound lovely. I'm well overdue a good Primark browse.

I have just ordered these cosy sheepskin slipper boots after seeing them recommended on MN. The "seconds" are a great price, and I'm sure I won't notice a small fault after a few wears. It does seem a bit odd to be ordering sheepskin in Spring, but I'm such a cold fish that they will be welded to my feet until the weather warms up.

And today I returned a handbag to M&S which wasn't the right colour. So, so far I'm actually in credit for March. grin

Pollywallywinkles Mon 03-Mar-14 19:07:17

I'm on a spending freeze so have not and will not buy anything!

Hopasholic Mon 03-Mar-14 19:13:01

These shoes from Mint Velvet. Picking them up tomorrow and hoping they're not too high. Hoping they'll look good with my bargain Matalan tube skirt as mentioned in the tube skirt thread.

I just received the Panache Porcelain T-Shirt Bra and Porcelain Plunge Bra. AMAZING!!!!! The T-shirt bra actually has better reviews but the Plunge worked best for me. Keeping them both though. So good!!!
