Today I wore this adorable jumper which I got a while ago from the Urban Renewal vintage section at Urban Outfitters. It's so cute and so warm as well! I wore it with my denim skirt from Pull and Bear which I wear all the time and my Garfield backpack from Lazy Oaf which I literally take everywhere! Also, I'm working on a cute, pastelly sales wishlist so check back in a few days for that!

Hi angels :) Hope you are all having a happy festive season! Today I wore this adorable velvet dress which was sent to me by Romwe, not only is it made out of my favourite fabric but it also laces up at the front! Bonus! I wore it with my Topshop denim jacket which I have customised with some cute patches that I bought on eBay. I need to get some more though, I kinda wanna cover the whole thing! Oh and in the last picture you can see some cute pins, including the adorable fried egg one which I received this week from Wkndrs!

Hi guys! I haven't been posting much recently because unfortunately I work in retail, and anyone who works in retail will tell you that the run-up to Christmas is crazy! Once Christmas is out the way, hopefully I'll be able to start posting more again!
Anyway, I had loads of possible cute outfits planned for the day that I took these photos, and then the weather decided to ruin absolutely everything and it started tipping it down :( So I threw on some jeans and a rain mac and decided to take photos anyway! So take that, rain! I wore my Lazy Oaf cloud jumper which I'm pretty sure I go on about all the time, and my acid-wash mom jeans which I think I wear equally as much!

This t-shirt is possibly the absolute cutest t-shirt that ever existed! It's from Glitters For Dinner who are a company based in Thailand and they make the most unique and amazing clothes! This t-shirt is my first purchase from there but I already have my eye on a few of their skirts - they do some adorable glittery ones with a fur trim that I need so badly! Anyway, I wore it with my denim skirt from Pull & Bear that I forgot I owned until this morning, and my lilac parka that I have worn almost every single day since I got it! Still my favourite coat ever!

I am so obsessed with fishnet tights and fishnet/mesh material in general lately! I just think the tights are so cute, I'm really clumsy though so I usually rip them the first time I wear them which makes me sad :( This cute mesh dress was from Jade Clark, although I got this for a steal on Depop and I am so happy with it! And what makes it even better is the holographic panel at the top - I love shiny things! I wore an old-ish Lazy Oaf dress underneath, and an old-ish Primark coat over the top. Oh and this beautiful mermaid-y bag is from New Look!

I was a bit wary of writing this post because a lot of people I know (both online and in real life) are complete and utter brand-snobs. You know, the sort of people that wouldn't be seen dead in anything other that Zara, perhaps with the exception of Urban Outfitters and Topshop Boutique. But then I thought to myself, who wouldn't want to read a post about beautiful clothes... that they can actually afford! Obviously I would love to be able to buy the real deal of all these items, but most of the time I just can't afford to! And even if I can, knowing my luck, they'll be out of stock. Plus, I have absolutely no shame in admitting that I love wholesale and Chinese websites, such as SheIn and Romwe. Most of the time, they have way cooler, more interesting clothes than your average high-street shop. So, keep reading if you want to find out where you can buy the bargain versions of all the beautiful clothes shown above!

1. Lazy Oaf cloud jumper - This is the only item in this post that I own the real version of. When Lazy Oaf released this jumper, it was love at first sight and I bought it instantly. Since then though, many companies have made similar ones, and Fame Is Lame are selling an almost perfect dupe here, for approximately £20. The original is sold out, but did retail for £60 (here).

2. Unif pastel frost jumper - All (and I mean all) the bloggers are wearing this jumper at the moment, which is probably why it's sold out absolutely everywhere. There is no denying that it's a beautiful jumper, but at approx. £58 on the Unif website, it's a bit too pricey for me. Thankfully, SheIn are selling a similar jumper for just under £15, here.

3. O-Mighty 'Drake' crop tee - I adore O-Mighty, they are so fun and quirky aaaaand... expensive! Plus, delivery to the UK is like £10 or something crazy! But I was browsing AliExpress (another wholesale favourite of mine!) the other day, and I came across this cute dupe! The original (here) costs £25 plus postage, but the AliExpress version is £5.75 with free shipping!

4. Unif psychedelic shirt - I feel like this one is another blogger favourite. This is actually in the sale over at Unif right now, but why pay £40 here, when you can pay just over half of that here?!

5. O-Mighty 'daddy's little gal' crop tee - A lot of people are into the 'daddy' thing at the minute, whatever that means haha. I suppose this little crop top is pretty cute. The O-Mighty version is only £14 (plus shipping) but we can do better than thaaat! The AliExpress dupe is just over £4 including shipping! Go, go, GO!

6. Unif colour-block 'crayola' jumper - The brighter version of the pastel 'frost' jumper, this jumper is for anyone who likes to stand out in the crowd! The original is once again from Unif (here), but the version I own is from SheIn, and cost just £13, here. Bargain!

7. Topshop button-through denim skirt - Yes, it's THIS skirt. The one that everyone owns and the one that is still out of stock on the Topshop website in most sizes. Luckily for you guys, StyleMoi are selling an almost identical version of the £29 Topshop staple for just over £12. Find it here.

8. Unif OTR backpack - I guess for some reason, companies really like 'taking inspiration', shall we say, from Unif. This backpack is absolutely adorable though, and like the Topshop skirt, it is also all sold out! The original retails at approximately £35, but good old AliExpress have got a dupe for £9.99! Click here to make all your rainbow dreams come true!

9. Lazy Oaf Cat-a-fore dress - Finally, a personal favourite of mine. This is a dupe of an old but classic Lazy Oaf piece which is no longer available. The original was £70, but Romwe have a perfect dupe on sale here for just £11.50! Purrrr-fect.... *dies of embarrassment at the worst cat joke ever made*

I hope you liked this post guys, let me know what you think about buying dupes. Do you prefer the real deal or are you all about saving money? Also, let me know if there's any brand/items you want dupes of, as I need inspiration for Part 2 of this post! x



Hi guys, for the past few weeks I have been SUPER excited to receive this coat from Romwe and today it finally came! As you have probably gathered by now, I have a bit of an affinity for pink/pastel/cute/cloud-themed stuff, and this coat ticks all the boxes! It's kind of similar to the Lazy Oaf cloud puffer jacket that everyone is obsessed with at the moment, but it's even better because it's pink! My next blog post is actually going to be a bit of a round-up/wishlist of affordable dupes to some of the key pieces on the market at the moment, such as the Unif Crayola and Frost jumpers, so look out for that!

I also wore my vintage wolf top which I think was from Cow Vintage, and my plaid pleated skirt which was from Primark last year - I absolutely love it, I wear it all the time! I also took my SkinnyDip shell bag out and seeing as it was cold, I popped on this adorable fur headband which I picked up from Primark the other day.

Hello beautiful people! I have had my eye on this amazing skirt from Jaded London for ages and I am so happy that it's finally mine! I wanted a metallic skirt for the festive season 'cause if you can't get all glitzy for Christmas then when can you? This one is actually part of a co-ordinate set and now I've seen how beautiful the skirt is, I'm seriously debating whether to get the matching top! I've also finally got on the lace-up top hype! This one is by Boohoo but I got it in the ASOS sale for just £6! Bargains make me happy :)

I've always been a fan of vintage stuff and crazy prints so when I saw these trousers whilst browsing eBay, I couldn't stop myself from putting an offer in. I ended up winning them from just £4 as well!  Plus they are super cute colours - I think they are my new favourite thing! I also wore my pastel parka which I am still 100% in love with (haven't taken it off in about two weeks now) and my Jaded London diamond print sweatshirt. Oh and I also wore my new bum bag which was kindly sent to me by Grafitee. I've wanted a bum bag for ages!
