I should really state that is actually the Boxing Day to Mid-January period that's my favourite time of year as this is when everything dirty cheap!
SALES SALES SALES!!!
I'll scream it from the rooftops if I have to!
This year I didn't get a chance to go shopping on Boxing Day as I didn't get paid until the 28th (Boo) but I did go shopping on the 28th and bagged myself a few goodies from Topshop and Primark!
First off we have (drum roll please)
That's right these bad boys are SIX QUID! I clocked them a while ago after seen a friend sporting a pair and waited patiently for them to fall in price, because thrifty buying takes a lot of patience! Originally they went down to £12 but patience certainly paid off as I paid a third of the original price! Definitely one of my best buys of the year!
Sparkly Gold Ankle Boots from Primark
Topshop Black and White Striped Shorts
These were a real impulse buy but it certainly paid off as they look fabulous on! I love them, they're high waisted and will look kick-ass with a pair of Henry Holland patterned tights and either ankle boots or heeled lace ups.
Topshop Embroidered Shorts
Topshop Velvet Leggings
Yet again Patience really is a virtue as I waited for these to lower in price and even had a picture of them saved on my computer! I love Velvet as it's very on trend for this season and I love the grey/black tie-dye tones and the tiny little studs. As expensive as Topshop leggings are, they are really worth it as I brought a scarf print pair and they have lasted ages and keep my legs nice and warm (unlike other leggings I have bought). They also do these leggings in burgundy and black.
Primark Floral Skirt
This skirt was originally one of those fishtail skirts that have been suffocating the high street since 2011 but I worked my thrifty magic and evened out the hem. Like the embroidered shorts, I was reluctant to buy this but after watching Cabaret (with Liza Minnelli, of course) I noted that I could combine it with a black turtleneck to create an outfit similar one she wears in a short scene. It was only a fiver and didn't take me too long to hem it!
Primark Jumper and Skirt Outfit
I didn't buy that much this year but then again most of the trends I like are this season so I'll have to wait until the next sales to buy all that!
Hope everyone has a great New Year and don't let the shopping bags get ya down!
