What I bought with my £40 @Selfridges Christmas giftcard and a few of the @Topshop things I’d rather like to add to my SS13 wardrobe.

Embracing my infatuation with beautiful Typography my eyes were immediately drawn to the print, cut and length of the Letter Print Shirt Dress, £50. My friends and I are quite a fan of the new, rather bold, and mostly monochrome ‘Art Haus’ trend that Topshop have created for Spring/ Summer 2013.

I also enjoyed this silky playful Half and Half Spot Tee, £32, I tried it on in an 8 and it fit rather nicely. It’s supposed to be quite a loose fit I think so I recommend trying on your normal size and the size down to see what looks best on you.

I’ve been infatuated with all things leather for a while now and when I saw this Leather Tshirt Dress hung up on the 'Last Chance to Buy’ rack, I decided to try it on for size. It’s pretty pricey around the £120 mark, and I don’t think I 'fell in love’ with it as much as I did trying on the Boutique Leather Pinafore (which my friend Sophie got for her birthday and looks AMAZING in!)

And finally… I tried on the beautiful Epilette Silk Peacock Top by Boutique, £65. It was soooo pretty and the material felt feather-light, but it made me feel 'a bit old for my age’? Does that sound odd? I’d still quite like to have one though… but it’s not top of my list.

However, I DID BUY the Letter Print Shirt Dress via Topshop, Selfridges, which meant the dress only cost £10 as I was able to use my £40 Selfridges giftcard towards it! (in a size 10 as the 8 was quite snug around my waist and would be even more snug after a good meal! The dress looked great when worn with a nice waist belt on my night out with friends) Yessss!
