more shoes?!

i never got the chance to go on my (well deserved) shopping spree, so i resulted in online shopping on my absolute favourite site...asos!

they have a 70% sale on at the moment too which is always a bonus :)

i didn't go crazy, which is so easy to do with their amazing jewelry and must have accessories- not to mention the shoes....which i love almost each and every pair of!

i purchased just a few bits (that i really needed...honestly) and as soon as they arrived, each item was as perfect as i imagined...

1. poodle print boyfriend blazer - was £60 now £24
so i finally bought a blazer...not exactly what i wanted originally (something plain that would go with anything) but i just couldn't resist this print, isn't it cute! i still think i'd be able to wear it with a lot of other pieces, just keeping the rest of the outfit plain, as i'm not a major fan of lots of pattern together. the fit and feel is brilliant, i can tell it's something that will last a long time as the quality feels great. it's fully lined and has full length sleeves, great for rolling up for a different style or leaving down.
so i got distracted by an animal print, again, but i think it was worth it.

2. lace loafers - was £25 now £17
now i really did need these...i'm sick of wearing my scruffy converse to work or wearing last years summer shoes, not that i'm a person that needs new things each season, but when my primark pumps and h&m wedges are falling apart from too much use last year, then i think it's time to update and move on. also with the weather being so unpredictable, it's too warm for boots yet too wet for sandals...hello to the loafer. they also come in black but i felt cream was a change and a nice choice for summer, also the see through lace adds a delicate, feminine touch to a simple day shoe. i thought it was quite an unusual design and fabric choice and i love it. they are so comfortable and go with everything day and night. definitely one of my best buys.

3. kitten heel slippers - was £35 now £24
i'll admit i've slated kitten heels in the past, all that 'wear proper heels or go home' stuff... but i take it back completely, as each night out my feet become more and more crippled (i should really do something about that but i can't resist a sky high pair of beauties) the thought of spending a night in a pair of these was too good to miss. first the colour caught my eye, available in lilac, green and black. then the suede effect slipper style which looks so comfortable yet bang on trend and the added little heel sealed the deal as i realised i could have pain free dancing sessions from now on! i think they would look great to dress up a pair of jeans or add a wow factor to a lbd. comfy, stylish and affordable. i will be testing them out this saturday night!

4. cross hand harness - was £8 now £4
whenever i shop on asos i have to buy a piece of jewelry, it's just my thing, whether it's to bring the delivery choice up to free standard or just because i'm addicted. these hand harnesses seem to be very popular right now and i'm one to try new things and ideas, so this cross design was perfect. simple yet effective as they say. the chain is very thin which could be an issue if i'm not careful with what i'm doing and the cross is made of a very thin piece of metal, therefore i don't think it's worth it's original £8 price tag as it's very dainty and delicate, not for the heavy handed.

with free delivery and free returns, asos is by far the best online store in my eyes. another great purchase received. check out the mid season sale now.
