The Shopping Edit: Confession Time

The Shopping Edit: Confession Time

I love coming clean every Friday on exactly what I have spent my well earned pennies on… confession time!

So this week I had the 20% off M&S voucher preloaded on the Sparks card – love that card do you have one? Gets you discounts on so many different things each month. I bought myself this super cheap belt, in leopard print (of course), skinny and perfect for adding a bit of interest to an otherwise simple outfit. So far I have worn it with black jeans and a grey cashmere sweater.

I also used the discount to purchase a beauty treat I have been wanting to try for a while now. This Pixi glow tonic gets rave reviews from some of the top beauty insiders. I am on day two and not much to report yet….

And finally… the naughtiest purchase which may still get returned as it’s currently flying across the ocean to me… this beautiful Free People shirt. I don’t know why I read their weekly marketing emails as every time I open one I end up lusting after everything on the page. This shirt was styled on the mailer with a very Saint Laurent bolero jacket. The styled shot for the shirt alone doesn’t look as good so i think it’s better open and with the bow loose like in this photo. Let’s see how I feel when it arrives…

And there it is… my list of shame. Love to hear from you as always! Anything you bought or have your eye on. Maybe you’ll buy something here?

Thank you so much for reading!

    Will you wear the shirt with the belt V? I’d like to see that 😉

      I hadn’t even thought actually! I’m just not 100% sure about the shirt – it’s quite pricey for whats essentially a striped shirt. The button detail does look beautiful though xx

        A beautifully cut striped shirt will give you years of enjoyment in numerous outfit styles!
