OOTD and my recent bargains ...

Wednesday, 6 July 2011

I thought I'd liven up my OOTD pictures with a cute collage/border type thing as they weren't particularly good shots (i don't know whats wrong with me at the mo but every picture i take of myself comes out as a fugly mess!)

So here's what i wore today to the office:

Sheer blue shirt - Primark
Basic white vest - Primark
Floral skirt - H&M
Tan belt - Primark
Brown brogues - Primark

My first bargain i have to show you is the gorgeous skirt featured in my OOTD. I picked it up in the H&M sale for just £3!!

I was so chuffed when i saw a little row of these quietly peeking out from under the jumble as i had originally ordered this from their website which then never arrived!
H&M seriously need to sort their online ordering store out - after waiting 3 weeks for it to turn up, i was told that i didn't reach their minimum order value so they wouldn't send my item out until i had bought some more items even though i had paid £3 for delivery! What the actual hell!? Anyways, its a lovely soft beige colour with a cornflower blue, coral and white ditsy floral print. It has an elasticated waist so can be worn on the hips or highwaisted - perfect!

My second bargain was this gorgeous cream lace shift dress from Dorothy Perkins. I have been looking for one of these for about 3 months and could never find one that was just right. I never normally shop in there and was wandering around tweeting on my phone while waiting for my mum in the fitting rooms when I spied this little gem hidden at the back of the store. It was reduced down to £10 from £30 - what a steal!!

I also picked up some cool necklaces and a ring in Dotty P's as i had a Topshop/Miss Selfridge/Dorothy Perkins giftcard left over from my birthday way back in February!

How cute is this necklace :) cant wait to wear it with a really simple outfit.

This ring is HUGE! Could definitely gouge someones eye out with this bad boy ;)

Tan tassel charm necklace - £3
Flower necklace - £5
Semi-precious stone ring - £5

Have you got any funky ways i could jazz up my lace dress for a quirky look?
