What are the last three items of clothing you bought, and why?
I've bought a long sleeved black layering t shirt from H&M, a black and white Breton also from H&M and an animal print jumper from Whistles which is ---bet lynch i fear or really subtly sexy and stylish...--lying on my bed while I decide if I'll keep it. Bought them all because apart from the Breton ( of which I have about a dozen) I don't have anything like them.
A pack of knickers, and a pack of socks from M&S (to replace some with holes in/too worn to be useful), I also bought a long-sleeved t-shirt from H&M because I needed some new winterwear after a clear out of things that no longer fit.
I bought 3 things from Superdry: "bouquet" dress in purple (ribbed vest top with short tiered skirt), grey "cheerleader" skirt (very short, pleated school girl looking thing) and bright blue t shirt with pink and black writing. I bought them because I fell in love with everything in the shop, but those were my favourites, and they fitted well. Had to get some new clothes as have lost weight!
Black skinny jeans and a super bright orangey red jumper, both from Whistles. Because.. My grazia voucher was burning a hole in my pocket, and I couldn't quite resist the vanity sizing in there returning to a size 8 (finally!) after DD was born last year.
Number 3 is my Danefae coat that arrived yesterday. I love it! Bought because.. Mumsnet told me to The wise ones were right as usual, I was toasty and dry in today's monsoon. And complimented on it at school gates too
cardigan- thick beige wooly one. its cold! black biker boots fur lined- beacause they were cheap at £20 and thoughtid try them for style before investing in some real leather ones. black and cream print dress for work.
A longer biker jacket type thing from Oasis. I was actually looking for a parka, but couldn't find one I fancied. Ordered it online. I'm looking forward to the slight edge it will add to my wardrobe. Slightly worried about the slight edge it will add to my wardrobe (still finding my way out of the mummy rut).
Some denim jeggings from M&S. Because it's time I embraced skinnies. I wore them yesterday and the sky didn't fall in.
A load of tops from White Stuff. Mostly long sleeved layering things which will be great when the weather gets colder. And a lovely foresty green top. I adore the colour.
Grecian style green maxi dress for a friends wedding next week (Topshop)
Grey Leigh Jeans and White jumper, also from Topshop. Have been looking for a pair of grey jeans for ages and the white jumper goes perfectly under a leopard print jacket collarless jacket I bought from River Island a couple of weeks ago.
Am desperately searching for a clutch bag (pref vintage) to go with the dress for the wedding now..
