My Recent Non Beauty Acquisitions

I've been trying to save money on beauty products so that I can have more to spend on clothes. I've so far managed to curb my spending on products and finally no longer feel guilty buying too much makeup.

The following haul was purchased over a space of a few months, and I never got round to posting about them.

First up is one of my favourite purchases this year. A sequin dress from Mango.


I love romantic, ethereal looking dresses, and I like how the sequins aren't too 'bling' on this dress. I also love the soft, ballerina feel of the skirt.

Also from Mango is this bolero.


It's sequined too, like the dress.


I got this clutch at a 50% discount from Miss Selfridge. I think it'll be great for Summer parties, especially weddings. Hopefully it'll be quite nice for winter too since it reminds me slightly of snowflakes.


I bought this black lace clutch from Accessorize.


I've always wanted a military coat, but without looking like I'm actually in the army. I can't wait til it gets colder so I can wear my new blue coat from Zara.



Banana Republic just opened a store in Manchester, and I bought this crystal belt from it.


Last but not least, I got a pair of teal velvet ballerina shoes from Topshop.

  7. I love your choices, they are so feminine <3 I can tell the ballerina dress must be gorgeous on you because you are an angelic-looking person. My winter coat is surprisingly similar to yours, but a much greener teal shade... and it is so long on me cuz I'm short!
