Recent purchases

First of all, big cuddly apologies for not posting regularly. Uni's restarted and the workload is quite full-on. I'm now learning shorthand (eek) and all the different laws I now have to know as a journalist in training, so it's pretty hefty work. However, I am trying to plan posts as and when I can!

So, enough about my education and more about what I've been buying recently for the A/W months.

I've been on the hunt for a new coat for a while and stumbled across this beauty on ebay. The colour doesn't show up as well on the picture but it's a lovely camel colour with 3/4 sleeves, a pretty peter pan collar and a really lovely "swing style" fit. The coat has been sold in Topshop recently but is sold for the lovely price of £19.99 online just because it doesn't have the Topshop tag inside. Bargain? I think so. 

However, as lovely as the coat is, it's going to have to be a coat I wear when going out for drinks etc as I live in Sunderland, and the coat does not have the protection I need, against the wild weather we witness up North.

Red Herring @ Debenhams

Now, on to probably my favourite purchase - my lovely little tartan bag! And as I'm sure you're all already aware, tartan is everywhere right now. So, I went on my merry little way to the recent Student Lock-In and searched all the obvious shops and found a whole sweet nothing. I decided to take a peek in Debenhams at the H! by Henry Holland section (naturally) and found myself then walking to the opposite end of the shop towards the bags. And I guess that's it, I fell in love.

Tan Chelsea Boots @ H&M

I'm such a bad blogger, I've worn these so much since buying them a few weeks ago and haven't took a picture until now.. so, apologies for the scuffs! These were £24.99 and don't really need much explaining, they're comfy and match pretty much everything I own. Winner.

More Issues Than Vogue tee - £5.99 @ Ebay

I'd seen this top a while back on quite a few eBay blog posts and loved the quote but couldn't afford to buy it at the time (I was really poor, okay?) Then, I came across it again the other day and snapped it up faster than you can say supercalifragilis... yeah.

Let me know what you think of my new stuff!
