Sales haul part 2!

Onto part 2 of my sales haul! 

Primark High Waisted Spotty Shorts (similar here and here)

I'm a big lover of all things vintage/retro, so when I saw these 1940's American retro style shorts, I knew I was going to be very happy! Great for now with a pair of tights and a denim shirt, and then as soon as summer comes around I'll ditch the tights and bring out the lace tops! I do have a black spotted shirt as well, and I got really excited as I thought I could create a two piece with it, but unfortunately the spots on the shirt are a bit smaller than the spots on the the shorts :( oh well! 

H&M Sequined Playsuit (similar)

Everyone needs a bit of sparkle in their life, and this sequined playsuit from H&M really fits the bill! With fitted high-waisted shorts counteracting the flowy spaghetti strap top, this really makes an impact! It also has a cut out slit at the back to show a bit more skin, and its a very practical choice if you're thinking of going on a night out and its really windy outside (no knicker flashing here thanks very much)! Well, not so practical when you want to go to the toilet, but you catch my drift. It's a good alternative for the LBD, especially at the great price of £15! 

New Look Mela Loves London White Faux Fur Coat (currently sold out, but similar here and here)

Usually, white coats are shied away from due to the constant worry of dirt and staining. But I decided to take the risk when I found this white faux fur coat in New Look, as it's such a great way to perk up an outfit in these colder months! Plus, it's all about the coat right now, and hey, who can resist a good warm coat?! With its prim collar and textured fur, I'll be going for a monochrome look with black skinnies and polka dot shirt.

New Look Cream Crochet Top (similar)

I'm a sucker for a lace crochet top, and seeing as I'm pining for summer, this was a great way to getting one step closer to the warmer months! It has a great boho vibe with flowery patterns, and the zip at the back adds a nice detail. Its quite light, so not really practical for right now, but as soon as the weather gets warmer I'll be popping this on with denim shorts and a flower hairband! Peace!

New Look Black Roll Neck Long Sleeve Top (this is out of stock at the moment, but keep an eye on it! Here are some similar ones in the mean time: here and here)

The good old roll neck. The ultimate item that still looks cool even if you're wrapped up like a polar bear. Great for layering under dresses as well as pairing them with skirts. This was a staple that I was happy to purchase when it came around! I'll be wearing it with a leather look skirt, boots and an oversized coat this winter, but the possibilities are endless!

New Look Fox Jumper (again out of stock (you guys obviously loved it), but here is an alternative) 

How adorable is this fox jumper?! I saw this originally at full price (£22.99), but decided to leave it and wait, so when I found it at £11, I couldn't resist! I've been after a thin jumper for quite a while, so this one will be great for layering without looking too bulky, and for taking the transition from winter to spring. The fox just tops it off; its so cute (foxes are among my favourite animals)!!! This will be great on its own with jeans and a fedora as well as layered over a shirt or dress. 

New Look PU Skater Skirt (similar)

Last but not least, my PU leather look skater skirt. I have a lot of love for the colour, and has a great circle shape that has been making its way down the runways. The material actually feels quite luxurious, and it adds a pop of colour to any outfit. This will look so cute with my new roll neck and brogues, I'm really excited to wear it!

That's it for my sales haul! I've shopped till I've dropped (literally) and have some amazing pieces to show for it! I'm sorry that I don't have many links for the original pieces; sales can be so erratic that you don't know when things are going to be in stick or not! But I hope the alternatives are just as good!

 What's your favourite thing that you've bought so far in 2014?
