What have I bought lately? | Clothing.

I know I've been buying a lot lately. So much so that I often forget what I've bought. This is a collective haul from around six weeks, but proves that I must be back in my dress phase. Most of these have been bought in the end of season sales, which suit me fine really as my winter style is layering up with a chunky cable knit granny cardigan (I managed to find a perfect one on eBay!). I've also used stock photos, mainly because I'm too immobile at the moment and trying to get each item out of my wardrobe to photo would be a complete pain for me. 

Beware: this might be a long post. I have bought a lot.

First up we have three dresses from Dorothy Perkins, all picked up in the sale but all at different times.
Pink, blue and grey gingham smock dress - £5.
Navy blue and white smock dress - £5.
Black and white checked skater dress - £9.

You may have seen these three dresses floating around on my Insagram account lately, but you gotta love an Asos sale! The first dress wasn't in the sale but after some considerable uhming and ahing I decided to add it to my order, and I'm so glad I did, it's beautiful

Black and white origami animal dress - £25.
Leaping tiger smock dress - £10.
Gingham and daisy smock dress £16.
I also treat myself to a Leather Satchel Company charcoal black 14" satchel yesterday for £75, but £67.50 with my student discount. I've had so much trouble with Zatchels lately that I've really given in on buying satchels. Three times I've bought from them and three times they've never arrived with numerous ridiculous excuses. Luckily I've paid with PayPal each time and have claimed my money back. They are a poor company with a lack of customer service and are just plain awful. I did also buy a metallic gold satchel from the Leather Satchel Company before and when it arrived the gold paint just flaked off. After speaking to their customer service it seemed they had just spray painted a silver metallic bag and that was the issue. They did refund me (via Asos) so all was okay. It still left a nasty taste in my mouth. I thought I would give them a second chance because let's be honest, not much can go wrong with a plain black satchel!

Lastly on the clothing side of things I bought two items from Simply Be.
I've had my eye on this 'I Am Fashion' top for a while, and when it was reduced to £12 in the sale I didn't feel too guilty buying it. I normally don't buy slogan t-shirts as I find them immensely tacky, but let's face it, I am fashion! 
The shirt dress is from the AX Paris Curve collection and really caught my eye. I love the bright, neon pink floral print and a high fastening collar. This will be great for layering with a pair of tights and chunky boots in A/W!
