Recently I was contacted by fashionvouchers.com to create a post on saving money on fashion which I thought was a brilliant idea! I started off by thinking: What are the essentials in any girl’s wardrobe? And came up with this list:
1 party dress
1 pair of denim cut off shorts
2 pairs of trousers
1 pair of heels
1 pair of sandals
Owl and Dagger – STUDDEDCROPPED TIE DYE JUMPER - run by Lucy of Lucyboots, this store creates all of their items by hand so quality is guaranteed, it’s also great because I love supporting small companies and helping them to build their business as I know it can be difficult. The jumper is studded, tie dyed and cropped – 3 of the most popular trends right now all wrapped up in one. At £22 you can’t really go wrong!
Asos – WHITEBLAZER - Everyone knows about asos – the cheap online shop selling major trend pieces. I am dying for a white blazer in my wardrobe right now as it makes practically anything look classy. £32
PARTYDRESS – Isn’t this dress bea-uuuutiful! It is originally from River Island however on asos it has been reduced by £5. Is this a dream? £25
- FLORALSANDALS – I couldn’t not include these sandals in this list, they’re just too pretty and so on trend. Even though it’s the beginning of August, summer is nearly over for us poor Britons but these babies can be worn in the winter months too because we’ve seen on the catwalks a tonne of socks and sandals – parfait! £28
- OUI/NONBELT – Recognise this belt? Your right, it look suspiciously like the Topshop ‘LOSER’ one but for ¼ of the price and to be honest, this one is 10x cooler! £4.50
Rokit – DENIMCUT OFF SHORTS – Rokit is a dreamy online vintage store that I discovered recently which sell super cheap (or in terms of British vintage prices!) vintage items. A huge trent this year has been ‘vintage-looking’ denim cutoffs which you can buy from Urban Outfitters for something ridiculous like £50, why pay that when you can have them for only £20?
Boohoo.com – KHAKICOLOUR BLOCK BLOUSE – As we all know military style is going to be HUUUUGGEEE this Autumn and this blouse is the height of the trend with its colour blocking (you know I’m a sucker for it!) and sharp collar. I have ordered some shorts from Boohoo before, after being a bit wary about the site and was delighted when my parcel came within 2 days and with free delivery. I wore those shorts to an incredibly muddy festival and they lasted me the entire weekend. I was even able to get out all of the mud and glow paint – new favourite shorts I think! £20
Loveclothing.com – SHEER FLORAL CROP TOP - I have been drooling over this amazing crop top for some time and now that it’s on sale I couldn’t resist putting it in here! I have heard such good reviews about this site and so was surprised when I headed over to their website to see how cheap everything was! £11
Topshop – VELVETPANEL BOYFRIEND JEANS – Ok, so maybe Topshop isn’t the best place to bargain hunt, but it is well known that they do the best, softest, comfiest jeans around. Boyfriend jeans are going to be everywhere this Autumn along with velvet, so these jeans are the best of both worlds! I plan on snapping them up and being first to the trend before they sell out and other shops start selling them for twice the price! £50
Glamorousuk.com – NAVY DISCO PANTS – who doesn’t love disco pants? No one. That’s who. I have been wanting some in navy for some time because my black ones just don’t go with everything in my wardrobe, so when I found these bad boys for literally less than half the price of AA disco pants, I knew they had to be mine. £29.99
Office – JEFFREYCAMPBELL FOXY LEOPARD PRINT – OH.MY.GOD. Office have a sale on Jeffrey Campbell’s for less than half price. That’s any girl’s dream right?! Trust Office to provide us with the most ah-mazing shoes at the most AMAZING price! £55
TOTAL PRICE: £297.48
TOTALS SAVINGS: £173.50 (WOW!)
And the best reason why I should win this competition (aside from that I would worship all of these clothes all day, every day) the winner is announced on my birthday! What a brilliant bday prezzie that would be!
