#HeresWhatIWouldHaveSpent - TopshopMonday, April 27, 2015
I really love that the #HeresWhatIWouldHaveSpent challenges are becoming much more regular.
Topshop is a shop of my youth, but even then it was only shoes, bags and accessories. I’ve frequently seen things online that come from Topshop and thought if only that was in my size.
I know technically one of my items is a free-size item and it’s included because as much as I love it I would only buy it if it was cheaper. I think it’s too dear for what it is. So it’s a technically here’s what I would have come in to your store and bought if you were cheaper! (We all know I’m a bargain hunter)
1. Split Back Duster Coat £79.00 Size 4 -16
I have got a real thing for duster coats at the moment and I have been looking online for them for a couple of weeks. I don’t really research online. I research in shops and go to the internet when I’ve exhausted all other avenues. This time I started on the internet but couldn’t find anything I liked as much as this one. Then without even trying I found one in ASDA Living. It’s a bit more Mac like and a little bit small but it was £15 in the sale.
2. MATERNITY Crepe Seam Shift Dress Was £48.00 Now £25.00 Size 8 -16
One thing I didn’t know what that topshop still stocked maternity wear. I just searched dresses and this one caught my eye. When I put this together I was looking at things to wear for my grandad’s funeral which is why I think I went for the black dress. I think I;s a really nice shape and a good price.
3. MOTO Blue Ripped Hayden Jeans £42.00 Size 24in – 34in
My quest for jeans is never ending. There are so many styles of jeans and for the last 3 or 4 years I’ve stuck to skinny jeans, with the odd pair of boyfriend jean thrown in to the mix. I’m getting a bit bored of the jeans I own. I want to mix it up a bit and I want to try some ripped jeans. I like the look of the relaxed fit and I don’t think I’d wear them turned up, they are along the lines of what I want.
4. Donut Backpack by Skinnydip £30.00
This is my cheat item. I know when I went into Topshop yesterday I could have bought this if it had been available. I could have handed over £30 but I really don’t want to spend money in a store where I can’t buy the core of their products. I will make exceptions for bargain sale shoes, accessories and makeup item. I think this is expensive but too fabulous not to mention.
5. Ribbed Cropped Cami £6.00 Size 4 -16
I hold my hands up the crop top trend has finally reached me and while my confidence levels and the hatred of having a cold belly hasn’t reached a level where I would wear a crop top as part of an outfit (sunbathing in the garden in one is about where I’m at) for £6 I think I’d brave this. I could make this work.
6. MOTO Blue Mom Jeans £40.00 Size 24in – 34in
Similar to number 3 Mom Jeans have been the top of my wish list for months. I feel like they would work well for my shape and the other clothes that I own but I can’t find any Plus Size versions that I like enough to buy.
I can’t wait to see what everyone else has chosen. Be sure to go and check them out and leave me a comment to let me know what you think of my choices.
