Lil Miss Shopoholic: Major Clothes Haul :)

Hi guys! I haven't been shopping in agesss.. and when I did end up going.. I ended up SPLURGING haha =D It's only recently that I've been buying clothes.. I've been on a weight loss system and I didn't want to buy anything prior to that in case it didn't fit later on.

I just wanted to show you some of the things I bought.. I love haul posts =D

Anyway.. here goes :

(Btw i really wanted to post pics of me wearing them but i look like a tramp.. im planning on doing OOTDs after exams.. woo!)

I went to New Look first, after finding out they've got 20% for students until 16th May (funny how they do it once the student loans come out .. lol!)

Whenever I go to New Look.. I never see outfits that I am instantly drawn to.. so i end up looking at their shoes and jewellry. However, on Friday I went in to see so many amazing tops that I really wanted:

This top was on sale for £12 pounds.. it went from £40 to £12 pounds.. it is quite big for me.. but I prefer this kind of top to be worn a bit more baggier than usual.It will also the last one left. It's my favourite thing I bought. I tried it on in the dressing room and fell in love. I will deffo post a photo of me wearing it.. it looks MUCH better on person!! I love the design on the shoulders..it makes it look more glam!I'll probably team this up with jeans and small heels.



This is the next thing i bought. I love this T-shirt <3( style="cursor: pointer; width: 180px; height: 320px;" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_VPDnfDAdNrs/S93Z30lYVCI/AAAAAAAAAI8/vOc0YMEGIB4/s320/DSC03161.JPG" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5466765075729110050" border="0">
The next purchase is a simple khaki vest.(£6) I'm going to Egypt this year and I wanted to buy some nice vests I could wear. To be honest.. you can wear this in any season. I prefer simple tops.. you can wear them in soo many different ways =D (I like to keep the labels on until I actually wear the clothes hehe) It looks tiny but it's stretchable so it fits lol. All in all.. the grand total was £20 (and something pence) I was shocked.. I didn't even realise until I got home.. the assistant said that I could only get the discount for the two tops and not the sale item.. I think she made the mistake, unless I've got my sums wrong??

Later, I went off to my favourite shop.. River Island!! I love River Island.. I love the purses, the vests, the shoes, the bags, the dresses.. you name it lol.. one thing I do not love it is the ridiculous prices.. and they don't even have a discount for students.meanies

Anyway.. I bought this vest.(rrp 9.99 or 10 pounds.. does it matter lol?) It's got stunning little stones on the hem. I've got this in the cream version..and I ended up buying this in a size 8.. because River Island sizes tend to be bigger. I love dark blue, I like fitted vests.. they give definition to your figure (DUH!!). I'm going to team this up with jeggings and probably flats, not sure what to wear on top.. I'm not very fashionable LOL.


The next thing I bought were these lil beauts. (rrp £7.99). Arent they stunning? I love the detail, and I can ever wear them to work (Work have a strictly 'no dangly earrings' rule.. BOOO). I wore them to work on Saturday and all the old lady customers kept complimenting them (I don't know whether thats a good thing LOL)♡

Moving swiftly on..I bought these dresses a couple of weeks back but I had to return one of them due to a sizing matter. I wanted to post it but I couldn't because I wanted to show them all together. All of these are from BooHoo. I love Boohoo.com. For those who don't know, it's an online retailer that sells clothes for cheaps. There are dupes from designers and high street stores. However, not all of the clothes will take your fancy..I do have to delve deeply to even find something I like! Another thing I love is dresses. It's makeup first.. then dresses. It's my sick obsession lol.


This is the first dress I bought. I had been eyeing it up for a month prior to purchasing it. It's of 'greek' style..I can imagine wearing a gold head band around my head, with flowing wavey hair. None of my friends like this dress.. they think it won't suit me...but it does look better when worn.. however it's REALLY short. This is the type of thing I could only wear on holiday! It cost £25.00 - I think its justifiable!


This is a another one of those dresses that looks better when worn. I'm really sorry abut teasing you guys but I will be posting pics of me wearing them when I do actually wear them for a night out ;) It's got that 'hermes' style.. I like the simplicity of it.. I'll probably team it up with high heels of a different colour to add a bit of edge to the outfit and straight hair. It cost £20.. not bad!


I've left the BEST till last. This is probably the most stunning dress I've got in my dress collection. I like the whole egyptian notion.. the detailing on the sides (this can make you look slimmer). When I tried this on.. I fitted amazingly. It defined my curves quite well and I just can't wait to wear it! It cost a mere £25 =D I'll team it up with slight heels and have curly hair pinned to the side. I want to wear smokey bronze eye shadow with a hint of green. (To keep the whole egyptian look going).

As you can see... I've spent loads. However my justifications are:
  • Buying clothes makes me happy..I need it , especially from the stress of exams.
  • Clothes are limited edition.. if I didn't get these now.. I would have never seen them in my life :O
  • I'm going on holiday this year.. and everybody needs summer clothes right??
  • I've been saving on travel cards 'cos I've had a whole month to study and therefore I havent been to uni in London.
I sound like Becky Bloomwood lol!

Anyway.. hope you enjoyed this overly long haul post.

What have you bought recently?
What do you think of Boohoo.com?

Love from Roshas xxx
