Parcels


(1) Grey peg leg jeans, Topshop £45 £20 ¦ Linen tapered trousers, Topshop £38 £18 ¦ (3) Roll sleeve burnout tee, Topshop £15 ¦ (4) Deer Ring, Topshop £12.50 ¦ (5) Pebble tassle clogs, Topshop £72 £40 

I love waiting for parcels to arrive, knowing that a bundle of loveliness is on it's way is always a little bit exciting. Then again, I also hate waiting for parcels to arrive, knowing I've paid for something lovely that I won't have in my hands for another 3 days infuriates me!

When I saw that more items had been added to the Topshop sale last week I had a browse online. I was doing only that though; browsing, more to pass the time and to see what things I recently paid far too much for had been slashed in price (as it happens my new tan clogs went down to £25! damn sales). I didn't expect to actually buy anything because I rarely do order things online for several reasons; I can't use my student discount, I hate paying postage, and I prefer to try things on. This time though, I actually found some things I liked and I found a way to beat the system! I spent over £100 so I got free postage, not that I wanted to spend that much, but I bought the trousers in 2 different sizes so I wasn't intending to keep it all. I also found an NUS discount code on a forum so got my, or rather someone else's student discount! So that's Topshop 0 - Lizzie 1!

I don't know why, because everything about them is telling me to hate them, but I love these shoes! I can't believe they were £72! I had to have them for £40 though. Love this deer ring too - it's never coming off!

  1. I'm the same I order DVDs online and then am waiting for the Postman and everyday they don't arrive I get disappointed then the next morning I'm excited again.
    I love the 2nd trousers and the shoes, they'd all go really well together.

  5. Love the clogs, their adorable. I get so carried away in sales, go out planning on buying one or two tops, and I come back with like five dresses, ten tops, and lots of shoes. It's terrible.
    Lovely blog. x

  6. Waiting is nail-bitingly anxious, but doesn't opening up a parcel just feel like Christmas everytime?

  8. I love topshop shoes but their prices are ridiculous. They had really nice wedges which I wanted before I saw they were £70 - ergh! Those clogs looks really nice though, quite different xx

  9. brilliant way of beating the system! ohh i'm always on forums, my favourite is martins money saver. they have an area for discount codes, competitions and 'grabbit while you can' where people posts the best bargains of the moment. it's brilliant, i have won and saved so much through this website :)

    i adore the trousers and top, they are so you. does that make sense? hehe. can't wait to see them in your future outfit posts!

    my break was a lot shorter then i expected, but it seemed like AGES since i last posted. try it for a week, intentionally not post, it feels rather weird! i'm so happy you like seeing my charity shop finds. don't give up searching! you'll find something simple amazing soon!

    love, jazzabelle. xxx

  13. arghh i was properly lusting the grey jeans but they were out of tens by like the first day of the sale.

    I've had the same nus number on topshop for about 5 years, just got it off a forum too. i swear one day they'll take it down but so far i'm happy with it!

  14. Ooo the tapered trousers look lovely; I bet they look great on. I really want to experiment a bit more with trousers - I basically just wear tights or leggings, rarely even jeans... yes I think I need these in my life!

    Great blog hun, and some great style here... ditto everyone loving the deer ring! x

  19. I too have a love/hate relationship with packages! I also hate tracking them. Do you ever refresh the page and mutter "darn it, still in ____"?

    I do. Heh.
    And while the shoes aren't really to my taste,they are certainly unique and probably look good on your foot (which means a lot more than how they look on the shelf!)
