I’ve been a bad, bad girl.

I’ve been spending again.  Some items just haven’t been worn till now, others are brand spanking new.  Want to see?

Okay first up is a little gem from Fiona’s Avenue57 blog shop.  This is a beautiful silk dress and it comes in navy, mocha, black and plum.  I have all four ooops.  Reason being that buying all 4 was still cheaper than buying one similar style dress from AllSaints.  Justified?  Pah what the hell.  I ADORE this dress!  Fiona will ship to the US too so make sure you take a gander on her store – there are some gorgeous items at brilliant prices!

I’ve worn it here with Rag & Bone Newbury boots, an old H&M scarf and my AllSaints Boston cardigan (old).

Next up – the Diesel Jogg Jeans.  These have to be the softest, most comfortable jeans I have ever worn.  Expensive – yes – but I bought mine with a 30% off coupon which recently expired – but it just goes to show that Diesel do offer discounts so sign up for their newsletters in case another one appears!

The jumper is Zara and did you notice the boots?  Err ehm.  Okay so my wicked friend Martha messaged me to tell me about the La Garçonne sale last month.  These petrol Newburys were heavily discounted so I sealed the deal.  They are a fabulous green/blue – well petrol color!

Okay so now the recent purchases.  Mango delivered super quick.  Remember I was quite taken by these coats the other day?

Well what should arrive last night?  I love them.  Mango US sizing is off – they have tried to account for the larger US woman – but it just ends up being confusing.  So a US Large is a UK/Euro Medium.  I ordered a US Small/UK Medium in the leopard coat – it is oversize but it is meant to be – I think I would lose the drama with the US XSmall.

The puffer is a US Large – so a UK XL!! These fit small – and I ordered the US L as there were no mediums left – I probably could get away with a US M but have decided to keep the large so I can wear it as I have here with my denim jacket under it, or a blazer.

So what do you think?  I should be pretty much done now for the winter!  A Zara box and an H&M box have just arrived for the kids too so that will be fun when they get off the bus today!

  1. Thanks for the shout out! I need to go and look at Fiona’s shop! I love that she and Avril will ship to the U.S. I’m obsessed with those jeans you have on btw! Waiting for a paycheck to grab them. Did you take your normal size?

    • No the jeans fit HUGE!! These are a 25″!!! it depends how much slouch/harem you want – but the denim is so soft that they will give a lot too – so I would definitely size down! x

  2. I’m LOVING those jeans Joanna, I need them ASAP!! Very similar to my Zara ones, but I love the colour of those. Signing up for newsletter pronto! Love the boots too, you have had a great haul! X

    • It is stunning – more like a coatigan too so really versatile and warm! Too warm for here yet:( xx

  3. Oh my goodness…what fabulous things. I’m totally jealous of the newbury boots. They look amazing on you. all in all a wonderful haul!

    • Oh how lovely to get a comment from you Gina:) You know how I love my Newbury boots – even my Dickers get pushed aside for these babies:) Question is which to pack when I head to the UK in Feb? Hope I get to meet you and Eve and some of the other WornOut girls – Sue is up for it too:) xx

      • A meet up will be brilliant – we are definitely up for it!! I have to say I’m biased toward those Newbury’s over the Dickers-they are the perfect boot!

      • Yay – it’ll be so much fun – can’t wait to see you all in the flesh! xx

  4. I have a bad tendency to buy in multiples and since rebuiling a wardrobe this past year from weight loss am now limiting myself to only two of the same item… That dress rocks and in all colors will be fun and fabulous! I won’t dare to list what I bought to get ready for the season, but I did get everything on sale and in fact great prices as items were clearanced from last season!
    Everything you bought I can see are real loves and will get used frequently, right?

    • Right!! Especially the jeans and boots – I will live in these – I love my Newbury boots and I’m getting quite a collection I am ashamed to say! Can’t wait to see some of your new fall closet:) x

  5. Love the dress on you. That’s how it should be worn and yep you were right to get it in every colour. I have to say, I love all the new purchases – they all really suit your shape and show off your legs. After all, if you’ve got it, flaunt it!

    • Thank you lovely – the dresses are perfect and will be great worn with leggings and boots as it cools down. Now the jeans – they are just divine…I will be wearing these often! xx

    • Oh you are sweet – but that is just not true lol!! That’s the thing with blogging we get to document the highs and lows of our fashion experiments lol:) xx

  6. Have to agree with the others Joanna, those jeans are gorgeous, I love your hair that length too.
