What I Wore: Liverpool Part Two - The Purchases

Top - £12.99 Zara sale

I spent most of my money in Zara whilst in Liverpool. I had a look around the Zara when I went to Leeds on Friday and it was like walking into a bomb site. There was just so much stuff. The one in Liverpool was well set out and there was space to walk, plus it wasn't too busy so Lydia and I had plenty of time to peruse. 
I generally wear baggier tops and tighter things on my bottom half, or try to accentuate my waist. I'm 5 ft 1 so it's pretty hard to find things that fit well, especially in Zara, which is more targeted to the taller lady.

Anyway, I like this top, it was a bargain and the back is the same sheer material as the panel on the back. It's quite basic, but different too.

Skirt - £18 (with student discount) - Urban Outfitters sale

The next thing I got was this skirt. I'd seen it in Leeds and loved it, but didn't have time to try it on. I always find the sizing a bit odd in Urban Outfitters so always try everything on before I buy. I love the way this hangs, plus when I picked it up, Lydia said 'I could see you in that', which is always a compliment. It's a nice length and a complete bargain. I can't bring myself to ever buy anything full price in there. Ever.

Coat - £49.99 Zara sale

This was my prize purchase of the day. I picked it up almost immediately, but was unsure of the poofy pockets. It fits like a glove, and the pockets don't make me look like I have gargantuan hips. It was the last one in the shop and Lydia persuaded me to buy it. She's such an enabler. I do love it though; it's a perfect smart coat. I have a duffle coat which makes me feel like Paddington Bear, but it isn't very smart. This is perfect. I adore it. The zip starts halfway up the jacket too, which I really like. It's a lovely shape and will be perfect for when I do my work experience in November, with a scarf wrapped round my neck.

I also bought this underwear set from Ann Summers, but I'm 100% sure it isn't necessary for me to model that.

Have you got any sale purchases?

Thanks for reading x

p.s. apologies for the photography/facial expressions. Argh.


  1. I love that skirt! It's exactly the kinda skirt I'm currently searching for, not poofy outy but straight, but I can never find them anywhere. I don't have an urban outfitters near me either darn! Love that coat as well, look at you being all prepared for winter already...although it pretty much hasn't stopped being winter this year (: xx

    1. I think it's online, or it was last time I looked! The only thing with websites like Urban Outfitters is that they charge for postage, which is so annoying! It is a lovely skirt though! This is the first time in a long time I've been organised for winter! I just had to snap it up though, it's such a bargain! xx

  2. Such a beautiful jacket! You've got some amazing bargains :)

    1. It really is, I can't wait to wear it! xx
