March Best Buys

I am going to share with you my fashion purchases for March.  I think I was quite a thrifty buyer this month getting some good deals in the sales.

I got the jumpers from H&M sale. The two pastel jumpers are like my blue one I got in January and I like it so much that when I saw them for £4 each I had to snap up that bargain. I also needed a plain black cardigan for when I start my new job, so when I saw this baggy cardigan down to £7 from £15 it was perfect.

Whilst doing the 30 days of fashion challenge one of days’ challenges was to choose my favourite t-shirt. I realised I didn’t have many t-shirts to choose from at all. So when I saw these  in Primark for only £2 I brought two as the weather is starting to warm up and I need some more cooler clothing.

 

I got this cute jumper from a charity shop for only £1.50. Its a strange fit with elasticated bottom and arms which are very tight and the rest of it is really baggy. Hopefully I can find a  to make this work as I love the pattern.

Lastly, I brought this comb. It is a life(hair) changer! I backcomb my hair to get it into a huge ball of mess which I love. Bigger the better. This comb allows me to get it bigger than I thought previously possible and it maintains it for longer with no droop!

Day 4- A shirt you haven’t worn 30 Day fashion challenge

A shirt that you haven’t worn yet. I have this beautiful blouse that was only £1 in a charity shop. It looks like it has never been worn, maybe for the same I haven’t.
