Pretty Things For Sale!

19 April 2014

So, I'm in severe need (!) of a blog sale!

Here are a selection of dresses, tops & a pair of Topshop shoes I've picked up along the years & have left floundering about back at my parents' house in my childhood wardrobe. THAT pictured BNWT The White Pepper sailor dress included... ;)

I'm about to graduate so it'd be great to get saving for my future & start afresh :)

PS - Apologies for the dreadful photos. I'm without my Nikon at the moment so my iPad is filling in for this one..!

Brand New With Tags: The White Pepper Sailor Dress - Size M (12-14) - RRP £55


Bought as a spur of the moment ASOS purchase last summer. Way too big for me but had no time to send it back! It's so gorgeous. I'd only see this on a Size 14 though, honestly - the waist is oversized. Go for it! Sold out everywhere! Would look v. Zooey Deschanel for summer picnics in the park.

Oasis Marilyn Monroe-esque Taffeta Dress - Size 12

£40 ONO

Bought 5 years ago for an 18th birthday ball, RRP £70. Only worn once & kept in a clothes bag. Has a beautiful underlay skirt & is perfect for twirling around a dancefloor in. Very Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch! Has moulded cups to cut the need for a bra, & a chiffon neck tie. Very well-built dress & made to last. A classic!

Lipsy Plum Bead-Detail Dress with Cupped Support - Size 12


The perfect figure-flattering party dress! Bought for my 19th, worn a few times & slightly worn at the chest from a chain handbag. Otherwise great condition. A very deep plum purple with sinched waist. The inside of the dress is made of silk, including a silk underskirt and underwired moulded cups. Feels very luxe!

Topshop Charcoal/Black Bow Dress - Size 10 (would fit 12)


Immaculate condition. Worn once for a school party (I was wearing a sequin throw! Wasn't that boring! Haha). Kept in a clothes bag all these years. Bought via the premium limited edition Topshop collection. Feels much more expensive on touch but is polyester/cotton. I'd recommend it with black tights & sequins!

Hahaha! Me wearing it when I was 15/16! The shame..

River Island Polka Dot Dress - Size 12


Polka dot dress, bought 3 years ago for a last-minute "I'll be a Dalmation" fancy-dress... I love it but I'm not into short sleeves, so it'd be great to see it go to a better home! Material is thick & non see-through. Lovely wee vintage-style gold buttons from the top to the bottom; can be completely opened up or buttoned to the top.

Vera Moda Star Print Shift Dress - Size L (12-14)


Another spontaneous ASOS purchase a few years ago. Too big for me but would be great for layering or belting up. Has little buttons at the back.

Be Beau at Matalan Rose Print Strapless Dress - Size 12


A looovely little strapless sun dress, with sweetheart neckline, fitted waist & a little black underskirt detail attached to the inside bottom of the skirt for added cuteness. One for the summer months! Well-loved ♥

George at Asda Bird Print Dress - Size 10

£5 ONO

Navy cotton tea style dress with tie-back waist & low scooped neck. Lightweight dress, perfect for a hot day. Cute white bird print!

Oasis Heart Print Dress - Size 12


Light brown/beige dress with black ditsy all-over heart print. The big ruffled sleeves are the focal point of this dress! I, sadly, have wide shoulders & I now know to avoid any shoulder action!! Cute dress with square-cut neck-line, fitted waist & zip back.

H&M Sheer Shirt - Size 38 (10)


The perfect sheer shirt for rocking the trendy smart look. Long-line shirt. Could be styled up with leather leggings & ankle boots for a rocky look or layered with softer pastels for a summer-appropriate look!

H&M *RARE* Grey/Black Knitting Kitsch Print Top - Size 10


THE cutest little top ever! It's a light-weight knit top with black knitting needles/wool/keys/scissors/pocket watches, etc all over it. Really kitschy & perfect for all you crafty girls! Not been worn in a long time & it deserves a loving home :)

Amplified Edie Sedgwick Print Tshirt in Size M (10)


Very hip indie tshirt from Amplified - the maker of all the best band tshirts! This is one from my indie days, can you tell..? And my Edie Sedgwick/Warhol obsessive days.. Based on the Ciao! Manhattan (1972) film poster. The "holes" are actually part of the design & the tshirt has a metallic "CIAO! MANHATTAN" logo across it, with red beads coming from the eyes. A rare collectable.

Topshop White Multi-Buckle Flat Shoes - Size 5 (Real Leather)


Pretty shoes, bought when I wanted *all* of the ChloƩ multi-buckle shoes ever, back in the day. And because of this The Cherry Blossom Girl picture! Barely worn. Look really cute styled up with ankle socks, or with a sun-dress. Need a good polishing up with a white leather-appropriate cleaner, but are great condition otherwise.
