(Clockwise: Topshop Halloween print blouse, New Look floral slip dresses, Topshop choker, New Look ghost jumper, Topshop tulle skirt and fluffy jumper.)
A round-up of some things I've bought over the last couple of months -- a mixture of loan splurging and eBay revenue made these all possible. I've gotten rid of so much stuff lately that I felt I deserved a big ol' treat!
The Topshop Halloween print blouse is the coolest thing I've seen from them in a long time. I love the all-over horror print and pyjama styling. My only issue is that it's massive on me, so I need to have it taken in! I've also indulged in another one of their famous fluffy cropped jumpers; the purple makes me look like an extra from The Muppets and I love it. The tulle skirt was very reasonably priced (I got everything during the 20% off Unidays offer) and will come in handy for dressing up outfits with ease. Also, is anyone else thrilled that chokers are deemed to be 'in' again? I am looking forward to stocking up on some more extravagant ones, and I really hope that Twirly Trinkets sees some extra business. Finally I've bought a few things from New Look, a place I don't normally shop in. I loved the 90s feel of these slip dresses and as I've purged a lot of items from my wardrobe that no longer fit, I didn't have a dark winter floral dress and wanted to fill that gap. I also won a massage with this purchase! I couldn't resist the ghost jumper, either, which is very soft, and slightly oversized on me in the medium. I'm going to wear it to go out for lunch on the 31st!
I love this time of year as the shops go all spooky and Goth-appropriate. I always end up buying myself quite a bit in October, which I refuse to feel guilty about as that is what overtime is for. ^_^
