Bargain Hunting!

Here are a few items that I have purchased on both Ebay and Vinted (a swap and sell app, similar to Ebay) over the last month or so. I’ve found that a lot of high street stores can be quite over priced, which is why I’ve been searching for bargains elsewhere before I commit to buying from the high street. You can find some gems from the high street on Ebay and Vinted anyway, so it is definitely worth having a little look! The only thing I found was that it is very easy to get addicted to bidding on an item, it gets very competitive, which is why some of the items may aren’t neccessarily the cheapest, but I’d like to think I saved some money in the process!

I can’t wait to style this gingham midi skirt! Originally from Primark and only recently retailing for £15, I paid around £8 on Ebay!

Originally from Miss Selfridge, I paid an amazing price of £3 for this pleated midi skirt! Such a bargain for an on trend skirt!

Including P&P I paid £9.99 for this over-sized denim jacket that was originally from Topshop!

I paid around £12 for this lace, fringed kaftan (originally from New Look). I wish I’d paid less for this as I could have bought new for around this price, but I got a little too competitive with my bidding.. oops..

I bought this from Vinted and the best thing about this is that when I signed up for Vinted I received a free £5 voucher.. This skirt was £4.50, and all I had to do was pay £3.70 postage! It is a gorgeous black tulle style midi skirt and I love how versatile it is!

 

FIFTEEN FASHION QUESTIONS

i. What is your favourite style to wear?
During AW I’m a skinny jeans and boots kinda girl, but at the moment I’m swapping my jeans for shiny disco pants or I’ll be buying some new velvet leggings. I’ll either wear a chunky knit or a blouse with these 🙂

ii. Who is your fashion role model?
Rosie Huntington Whiteley or Alexa Chung! I love Rosie’s classic cuts and colours, she keeps it simple but really pretty. On the other hand I love Alexa and her ability to look effortlessly cool, although I couldn’t pull off half of her looks! I’ll probably buy her new book ‘It’ soon!

iii. What do you always have on?
I’ll rarely leave the house without make up (shallow I know), but I also like to have at least one item of jewellery on too.

iv. What are your favourite jeans?
I would say my black skinny jeans, but I’ve worn them so much they’re all out of shape now, but I will be buying some new great fitting ones soon, because they are such a versatile piece!

v. What are your favourite sunglasses?
I don’t really have any as they always break before I can get too attached, but I do tend to go for oversized pairs.

vi. What are your favourite shoes?
I love shoes, but my favourite pair has to be a pair of tan patent sandals with a red raffia wedge that my boyfriend bought me from L K Bennett.

vii. Who influenced you to write about fashion?
YouTube definitely influenced me, mainly Bloggers like Zoella, Tanya Burr (who I met when I volunteered at The Scottish Fashion Awards!) and Patricia Bright, but I’m subscribed to so many though!

viii. What is your favourite store?
I would say Topshop, their stuff is beautiful (although I’m not impressed with this Angora scandal they’re involved in). I also favour many online stores though, like Boohoo and Missguided, such good products for a low price!

.ix. Who is your favourite fashion person on Youtube?
Probably Zoella, she is just so genuine, fashionable and relatable!

x. What is your favourite fabric?
I’m loving all the different textures at the moment, but probably velvet and wool! I love the oversized woolen coats at the moment!

xi. Who is your favourite model?
Coco Rocha definitely, (she seemed so nice on The Face) but also lots of girls from America’s Next Top Model, especially Ann Ward and Jourdan (from the most recent series)!

xii. If you had $5000 to spend on any item, what would it be?
Probably a handbag to be honest, I can’t get enough of bags, especially in bright colours! No, wait, definitely Louboutins, too!! Or one of those gorgeous woolen coats at Celine!!

xiii. Heels or flats?
I’d love to say heels, but I only wish I was that glamorous! For everyday wear flats are a lot more comfortable and I’m quite tall anyway so I don’t really need the extra height. Obviously for occasions I favour heels though!

xiv. What purse do you currently use?
Ah I have so many!! I do alternate them quite a lot, but I suppose it would have to be my oversized burgundy bag, half patent and half velvet material! I love the colour and it fits loads in it, too!

xv. Is fashion in your blood or in your jeans?
I’m not really sure how to answer this! So I’ll say it’s in my ‘jeans’ 😀
