March Haul

I don't think I have done too bad with spending this month, I actually thought I'd bought way more than I did this month, I was kind of dreading putting together this post haha! A few of the things I actually bought right at the end of February; I made my February haul post a few days before the end of the month because I didn't think I would end up shopping again before March, but I did! Also, I doubt anybody will be able to notice but in my previous hauls, the wardrobe I use as my background was all discoloured and old, and I thought it was making my photographs look a bit nasty, so my dad repainted them white so they look good as new! Haha, dedication right there!

Anyway, on to the haul, as always I have included links to all the things that are still available online.

Clothing

 Floral Shorts: via FashionismyH2O's blogsale, £3
I bought a few things from Sarah's blog sale this month, I had never noticed that she had one before, she has some lovely things on there so make sure you take a look :) These shorts are perfect for the summer, you can see me wearing them here.

 Black Bandeau: New Look £2.99
I thought I'd pick one of these up to wear under sheer and low cut tops and they're such a good price. I think I'm going to pick up a white one too.

 Peter Pan Collar Dress: via FashionismyH2O's blogsale: £6
Another lovely piece from Sarah. I really wanted something with a Peter Pan collar and I think this dress is really cute and perfect for all year round.

 Black Bodycon Skirt: Primark £4
I think a black bodycon skirt is a staple in every girl's wardrobe and I have only just got round to getting myself one. Some of the Primark ones feel really flimsy and cheap, but this one is great quality for the price!

 Blue Silk Dress: Via FashionismyH2O's blogsale, £4
I adore the colour and the material of this dress. The cut and length of it are perfect too, this is one that I will be dressing both up and down.

 Striped Bodycon Skirt: Via FashionismyH2O's blogsale, £3
The last thing I bought from Sarah's blogsale. I am loving the stripe trend this season and this skirt fits perfectly. You can see me wearing it here. I believe that this skirt is from H&M and you can still buy a similar one here.

Wild Child Top: New Look, £12.99 £5
I couldn't resist buying this from the New Look sale. I mainly liked the back of it, which is open and ties at the bottom. I have already worn this on a night out with my black bodycon skirt and bandeau top.


Shoes and Accessories




Black Loafers: Select £12 £10.20
I had been wanting a pair of black loafers for a while and couldn't turn these down for that price! They were originally £12 but my student discount knocked them down to £10.20!

Studs: eBay £2.75 per pack of 100
I bought these studs to decorate my loafers with, Topshop Vectra style! Once I figure out how I am going to do it, I will post a DIY tutorial :)

Moustache Ring and spike rings: Miss Selfridge £5  £2 each
Definitely couldn't leave the moustache ring behind when I saw it, it's so cute! The spike rings came as a pack of 3, I love wearing them on different fingers.

Scrabble Ring: eBay £1.80
I did buy a scrabble ring from Coleyyyful, but it broke :( so I ordered another one from eBay. Unfortunately it doesn't seem like the seller I bought it from is selling them anymore.

Gold Necklace: Dorothy Perkins £10 £3
Dorothy Perkins always has such good sales on their jewellery! This is just the perfect length to wear underneath collared blouses to add something to a plain outfit.

Clutch Bag: New Look, £7.99
I went on a night out with my course mates at uni last week and wanted a clutch bag to take with me as I feel more secure with a clutch, so I just picked this cheap and cheerful one up from New Look.

Make-Up


Maybelline 24HR Color Tattoo (Immortal Charcoal, Permanent Taupe, On and On Bronze): Superdrug £4.99 each (Currently 3 for 2)
I actually hadn't really thought about buying any of these, but I decided to pick them up today after I went in to town and none of the things I really went for were in stock :( Permanent Taupe is the one that I knew I definitely wanted, but I swatched On and On Bronze and fell in love with the colour. And since there was a 3 for 2 offer I decided to pick up Immortal Charcoal as this is the only other one I thought I would actually wear. There will be a review and swatch post in the next few days :)

Topshop Lipstick in Innocent: Topshop £8
I went in to Topshop to buy this as I wanted to see what all the hype was about with Topshop lipsticks. I am definitely a Topshop lipstick convert now; this is a lovely colour and the formulation of it is lovely. Definitely going to pick up more colours soon!
Sorry about the stock photos, but I haven't recieved these items in the post yet! I bought the O.P.I. Nail Envy Nail Strengthener and the O.P.I Nice Stems Collection via BuyaPowa for amazing prices (Nail Envy RRP £18.50 £7.50, Nice Stems set RRP £12.75 £6.75)! I can't wait to try them out. I will do swatch and review posts soon so you can see proper photographs of them :)

Phew, I think that's everything! Have you bought anything nice this month?
