Oxford Street Purchases

5 July 2015

Hey guys, so in this post I told you I went to Oxford Street and I'm going to show you what I bought today, because I bought a lot. Although thinking about it we didn't actually go to that many shops but the ones we went to were great. I had a list of things I needed and now I am fully set for summer. Well, except I really wanted to buy a white bohemian dress sort of thing and fell in love with this one, but they didn't have my size and whilst shopping I was hoping I would find one, but I didn't. Thats all good though because I'm in love with all the purchases I made and don't think I could ever have loved a white dress as much as I loved that one. 



(I was going to link you to these items but I can't actually find them on the website, I'm sorry!)
The first shop we went to was H&M. The first dress is just a little beach dress, always handy for summer and it sits so nicely on me. Also it has a drooped back and I love that. I also brought a black playsuit, and you can't really see but the back is lace and has some lace at the front. It's super cute and I feel like I can glam it up with a pair of heels or just keep it simple with a pair of Docs. I also just got that little white tight crop top as it's a very useful item I feel because the amounts of times I've needed one and not had one was just such a let down, so expect to see that used a lot in future posts. Plus, it was so cheap! Like only £3 or £4 I think, and for the amount of use it's going to be getting I figured what a bargain. Especially because in Topshop you can get something that's basically the same but is like £10. And finally I got a stripey top from the men's section to tuck into shorts and wear under my dungarees, I was so glad I found this and it was only £5 because I have been imagining so many outfits with a baggy striped top and now these outfits time has finally arrived. 



The catci are there to hold the shoe up because otherwise they just flopped over it's not just me being like 'lol how funny if I put cacti INSIDE my shoes'
The next stop was Topshop, after an agonising long walk looking for somewhere to eat and being too indecisive (we decided on Pret in the end) and I don't know if you've ever been to the Oxford Street Topshop, but it is enormous and has loads of other brands downstairs. We probably spent around 17 years looking in the shoe sale, because I really needed some sandals. We tried on so many pairs and there was this pair that I loved but on my feet they just looked weird. I feel in love with a pair of sandals that weren't in the sale, but they cost £52 and I was like gosh okay maybe not. After hunting for shoes for ages I finally found the sandals at the bottom. These weren't my favourite shoes but they are comfy and they are cute, just not as cute as some of the other shoes, but they fit and the bottom is spongy kind of so comfort levels are high. 

I also brought dungarees, which wasn't on my list but I saw a pair from Topshop and thought 'man these are too cute not to try on' then in the sale section of a brand called PeekaBoo Vintage ( I think thats the name, I'm not entirely sure but I'm definitely close) I saw these dungarees. In the changing rooms I really needed Hollies opinion but they wouldn't let Hollie round to come judge with me so I went at it by myself. To be fair I did prefer the other pair but there was literally no difference between them really except different coloured denim, but I chose these one because a) they were literally half the price of the other pair and b) well actually there is no reason b there was only that reason. These dungarees are so cue though, I remember getting a pair like two years ago and they weren't baggy and they fit me really weirdly (I'm not sure why I said yes to them) but these dungarees are baggys and hang loose and are just so cute. I wore them when we went to Camden and wanted to take outfit pictures but wasn't able to, so expect to see them soon. Then I also brought this dress from the label 'Glamorous' because the name just describes me. Also its a really groovy dress and is baggy (perfect for summer BBQ's no one can see my food baby) and is just so free. I love dresses so much, the only problem with this is if the wind blows I will lose all my dignity. Unless I wear shorts underneath it like I did the other day. I like to think this dress is a replacement for not buying a white dress, even though they're completely different styles this dress is just so beautiful. I didn't think it would look nice on me because I didn't think orange really suited me but it did. I think this dress would just make anyone look nice. I was expecting it to cost like £40 or something outrageous like that but it was only around £20! I think I done pretty well in Topshop because I didn't stray far from the sale section when actually buying things.


One of the last shops we went to was Forever 21 and I was pretty much dead by this time. I had literally shopped till I dropped and had to sit on the floor whilst Hollie looked at the sale section because I just didn't have it in me. Although I did manage to buy a bikini top which I desperately needed, Usually I struggle so much to find bikini tops, and in Forever 21 I found two tops that looked nice! In the end I decided on this one though and it only cost £4.20!

That was my purchases of the day, I wanted to do a post about mine and Hollies day and I wrote it all out but you know when you read over a post and it's like hm this is only (MY PARENTS HAVE JUST TOLD ME WE'RE GOING OUT IN A N HOUR WHO GIVES A TEENAGE GIRL AN HOURS NOTICE WHAT IS THIS MONSTROSITY OH GOD) entertaining because like it's my fond memories. 

The day was fun though besides the heat getting too extreme at parts and the fact I had no energy to look in Urban Outfitters (yes, we were that tired) but to be fair, that was probably a good thing because they are too pricey. Also, at one point in the day I had to take off my bra because long story short it was too uncomfortable to bear and I felt so free. I have never felt more grateful to have small boobs. But yeah, those were my purchases and I will see you on Wednesday! (Look at me with a schedule). On another note, how crazy this time next week I will be in France! Does anyone know if using the blogging schedule thing works? Because I usually get Hollie to post for me when i go away but she's away at the same time, does anyone have any tips because I probably will have no wifi. See you soon though!

    1. Thankyou! I couldn't decided about the playsuit at first because I thought it made me look oddly shaped but my friend disagreed and I tried it on again the other day to see how it was and it was fine, so I'm glad I bought it!:)x

    1. Thankyou! Oh my god the dungarees are the best, they're so baggy (from the side I can look kind of frumpy) but I always find baggy is perfect for summer because like I can eat everything I want and no one can see my massive food baby forming. Plus they're super comfy!x

  4. I love the bikini top and basically all the dresses you got, I really wish I had a Forever 21 near me! I haven't been shopping on Oxford Street for so long, this has reminded me that I really need (or just want) to go, ahaha. Where are you going in France? And I think the schedule thing works, at least I hope so cos I'm planning on using it when I'm away next week :')

    1. Oh god if it doesn't work we can fail together! I have no idea I think it's the south of France, we're going to a sunny place not Paris or anything. Forever 21 is so great I never realised before, when we were there I was so mad that I didnt have the enegery to look, they have somme really cute things! ALso, in Oxford Street (well actually I think Carnaby Street but they're pretty close-unless we just walked super far) theres a Brandy Melville, I never knew the UK had a Brandy Melville and all the clothes there were so soft. Expensive, but so soft and beautiful. (I was going to delete that part but it does relate to Forever 21 because they're both American so I guess it's okay) and you should go! But I feel like during summer it will be pretty busy but either way you should go when you can!x

  5. You've got some really nice things! Scheduling posts is super easy, I use it quite a lot as I tend to write in the evening and post in the morning and it's always pretty reliable! xx

  6. i'm a big fan of h&m and forever 21 as well just because everything is so inexpensive! and i get you on the hours notice thing(; it's an unrealistic demand tbh

    p.s. i think the cactus in the shoes is very tumblr--even if it was for practical purposes

    1. It was such an unrealistic demand, and they alway complain about us being late, like no wonder we're late! I know, I don't know why I always thought Forever 21 was expensive when it's anything but that! And thank you, I like to have multiple purposes for my cactus so they always feel involved :')x

  7. Haha when I scrolled past the cacti in the shoes, I was like is this a new invention?! Haha. I love that bikini top from Forver21, I'm off on holiday at the end of next month so I'm on the look out for good bikinis!

    1. Honestly if you're ever trying to show off your floppy sandals just use your cacti, it can become a new thing. And thank you, they had so many bikini tops! But if you're looking for good bikinis, I'm not sure from where exactly but my friend got a fake triangl bikini thing from Amazon, so much cheaper than the original but still such good quality and it looked amazing!x

  8. I absolutely love oxford street it's my favourite shopping place ever - even though I live too north to go very often. I also love forever 21 because it's such good quality and so inexpensive. My nearest store is Manchester but I love the London one because there's so much choice!

    1. The London one was massive, there were so many floors I had no idea where to go! I love Oxford Street too but I hate when its busy like please everyone stop. Or when you see someone with an item of clothing that you haven't seen and its just like WHERE DID YOU FIND THAT!? But yeah Oxford Street is great :)x
