Hello dollfaces!

Last week I promised you all I had a Velvet Blazer hidden away in a wardrobe that I wanted to show off to you all, I'm a woman of my word so here it is! It is a deep black affair with the most gorgeous drape pocket detail going on!

I've spoken about my hatred of the sales before, full of dross that is either unsellable or the wrong size for me, and of course the bargain-crazed shoppers using their elbows to unscrupulously gain an advantage in the race to grab the one golden nugget hidden within piles upon piles upon racks upon racks of tat.

So here's the confession: I bought this in a sale! It was £50 reduced down to £15. Bonus! I couldn't believe my luck, they had it in my size! I took it home and it's been squirrelled away in my wardrobe ever since...

For it's debut performance I paired it with an oversized burgundy blouse tucked into a mesh wrapped skirt.

  7. I'm exactly like you! I hate sales, one reason is because I never find anything, and the second reason is because I'm jealous of the people who do!!

  10. Yeah I'm not a big fan of sales either; whenever I come home with some bargain buys it's normally by pure chance. Love the ring, it looks like the real deal...I'd never have guessed it was Topshop!
