The Little Zara Order

So after my last post, I caved and checked out on my Zara order.  Shopping from a list is dull dull dull.  But it has made me question my sporadic purchases so it does have its benefits.  I ordered 3 items and they are all going back.  I so very nearly kept this dress.  I loved the star print and at £7.99 I thought it was a bargain.  I wasn't sold on the loose, cut out sleeves but when my friend told me it looked like something her Mum would wear, my mind was made up.  Even at that price it wasn't worth keeping.  It's now gone from their sale items, luckily for the customer some may say!  


(That's my hair that looks like a shooting star.  I decided to keep the shot for good luck!)
I failed to put this on my shopping list as it's not really a 'need' but I've been on the look out for some housey/loungewear trousers to replace my faded Nike joggers which are starting to get thread bare.  As I wear them a lot more than planned (I am honest that I love my joggers at the end of a hard day, there is absolutely nothing glamours about them) I was thinking about upgrading them to something a little more flattering.  I also feel for the poor people who see me outside watering my baskets or I open the door to in my current ones.  I saw these and thought they were worth a go.  I don't have her figure so needless to say they looked terrible, not even photo worthy for here.  Also a little static, so back they go.  They are £17.99 here in case anyone else fancies them. 


I was thinking about keeping this t-shirt then as I decided to return the others and saw a top in All Saints (it's coming up below) I thought I'd rather put the £10 towards that instead.  Nothing majorly wrong with it, comes up fairly large, I was just being good - yes, I'm probably coming down with something.  They do it in a few different colour ways and I would say for £9.99 it's worth it.  See it here.



So I managed to get to Bicester Village and found nothing in the way of sandals for my beach wedding outfit so tonight I will be ordering a selection from my previous post and update you on them soon. All Saints is back at the village (yay!) and I fell in love with this top.  It was £178 down to  £71 which I still felt was a bit steep as well as it's not on my shopping list - so I walked away.  However, they have a VIP date coming up soon with 20% off items so I'm hoping it may still be there then!


And finally, one for the Christmas list!  My very old Gucci make up bag has seen better days and I loved this leather one from Anya Hindmarch.  I like light coloured items for my handbag so I can easily see them.  This was down to £65.  Please Santa, I have been a good girl this year, honest.

  1. I actually really like the star dress, it's different (in a good way!) to most other dresses you see out there. I've been told H&M is really good for joggers at the moment x

  6. I always think that women who are young and pretty and look fab in certain items should never ask their friends opinions in case they are actually jealous. You should of kept the dress and not asked anyone's opinion, because I love it on you xx

  7. Ah Sharon, thank you. Well because of all your comments I took it out of the box and tried it on again but it's still going back. The sleeves just annoy me I'm afraid! But thank you for all your lovely comments xxx

  8. The dress looks lovely on you apart from the sleeves but I personally don't like cut out sleeves. But I think we are on the same wavelength here, lets put our money to something a little bit nicer eh?
