‘Ello munchkins. Don’t you think Friday has come around quickly this week?! Not that I’m complaining – I have Friday’s off so I’m more than chuffed!
I recently received an email from Very telling me that they were giving me 50% off of the spring/summer 2015 designer collection. I’m sure most people would have fallen over themselves trying to reach their laptops to take advantage of this pretty amazing discount, but I’m not a designer girl. This may provoke an angry mob; but I don’t like designer things… not for the most part anyway. But I had a spare 20 minutes between work shifts so I thought I’d take a little gander and I was shocked to find a few bits I actually loved!
But let’s not forget this is a designer preview and even with the discounts applied everything’s still way too expensive, even with the ‘take 3’ option. So rather than get myself in debt I figured I’d come and share with you guys!
I wasn’t sure of these when I first saw them, but the more I look at them the more I really really really really really want to put them on my feet. I love the little cutout at the front! I’ve never heard of ‘Emma Go’ before, but that doesn’t really mean anything when you don’t pay attention to designers. For £135 I’d be so scared of scuffing them I’d probably never wear them, even if I could afford them!
Calvin Klein – Croc Effect Cross Body Bag
Calvin Klein is obviously a designer everybody’s heard of – everyone knows of the CK boxers! I love bags like this that go with everything and it should wear pretty well as it’s got a patterned effect rather than being plain – patterns hide wear and tear! I’m not sure how big the bag actually is, but ‘mini’ makes me think I’d be lucky to get my keys and my phone in there; for £180 I’d want a lot more than that! It is nice though…
Aamaya by Priyanka – Cat Ears Ring
I’ve seen a ton of ‘3D’ rings simular to this lately but really liked the detailing on the ears on this cute little kitty one… just not for £220.
Equipment – Long Sleeve Shirt in Citrus Print
I really love this shirt! I saw something simular on ASOS ages ago and I really regret not getting it. It would look so sweet with the sleeves rolled up and tucked into a skater skirt with some jelly shoes and cool accessories! But it’s £305… that’s nearly half my rent!
Karl Lagerfeld – Monster Choupette Zip Wallet
This is too cute! I rarely use a purse anymore but if I had this I’m sure that would change! The design itself would be quite easy to replicate for the advanced crafter, but I bet the quality’s amazing; it wants to be for £165 anyway!
Ohhh I do love to play pretend; I haven’t spent a penny, but I feel strangely cleansed. I feel as if I’ve just got on a major shopping spree and I have that ‘new stuff’ buzz haha! The more I look over the bits I picked out the more I want them… Surely I’m not starting to lust over designer gear – what’s happening to me! I better go and watch Primark hauls on YouTube pronto 😉
