Fa(t)shionologie #2 - Bargain

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Evening Lovelies,

Can you believe it's the 15th of the month already?

Fatshionologie is a blogger style challenge born out of a discussion on twitter in the hopes that it would help us create exciting new content for our blogs as well as show that each new style 'theme' can be be rocked by a variety of different body shapes!

"Sales Bargain"

This months Fatshionologie challenge was all about sales bargains, we decided on a budget of £15 or less.

A few of us doing the challenge were going to the Clothes swap in Leeds and i'd decided to look for an outfit, as you might have seen from that post i might have got a few!

All the items below are from the saw with the exception of the Belt which i got from Evans years ago for under £5. I'm going to list the places the items originally came from where possible.

Necklace - Primark, still had the tags on.

Nail Varnish - Models own, this also looked to be sealed.

Brooch - unknown, i do love brooches and i'm going to try and wear them more this year.

Bag - H&M i did almost buy a bag similar to this, i'm a bit OCD in the fact i usually need a zip on my bag so i didn't buy but as this was technically free i can love without a zip.

Boots - Evans, these look hardly worn. i love the buckles

The self times photo i'd taken of myself was blury so i nipped in to peacocks to "try something on" aka take pictures of myself in the mirrors as they are the shop with the best lighting

I really love the top, the colours aren't ones i'd normally pic but i love it and although the jeans are a bit bunches round the ankles they are really comfy.

I also got some earrings, again i have no idea where they are from but they were still on a card.
