Haul - Miss Selfridge, River Island, Zara and more! (Guest Post by Just Me And Fruit Tea)

Hi all, I’m Kelly from lifestyle blog Just Me and Fruit Tea. First of all I’d like to say a big thank you Helena for featuring my haul on her blog. I hope you guys enjoy reading it!

So, last weekend I hit my nearest city centre and had a good ol’ shop. For me, renting in London straight from University and running a car whilst supporting a serious addiction to exercise means I feel guilty about spending too much money and don’t do it very often. But a shopping spree was definitely on the cards and I am extremely pleased with what the high street had to offer.

First up, I hit TKMaxx. Anyone who shops there will know it is incredible for finding some bargains - if you know what you’re looking for, or if you have hours to spend browsing. My excuse was the latter. I spent an hour and a half and it took 3 trips to the fitting rooms before I headed to the checkout!

The first dress I picked up is actually amazing. I never used to be a dress person but am being converted and bought two from TKMaxx on this trip. This is a satin, ruched number that is a caramel colour with black pattern and a cut out mesh design at the top. This didn’t look like much on the hanger but looks incredible on and makes me look 2 sizes smaller than I actually am! I googled the label and the dress is from London Times - a US site whose endless gorgeous dresses retail at around $85/£55, making my purchase at £35 an absolute steal.

The second dress I picked up is another flattering one. It is fitted but not bodycon, meaning there is a little forgiveness for those who don’t have the perfect figure (cough, me). It is a gorgeous electric blue colour and I absolutely love it. I got it for a mere £14.99, but it retails from Glamorous for £24.

Ok, time for dress three. This was from Miss Selfridge – actually one of my favourite shops style-wise but I rarely shop there due to price. I love having a look at their sale stuff and am always in hope that I can grab a great bargain! This time I was lucky. I got this gorgeous pastel blue dress for only £20. I’m calling it my princess dress. I really love the lace detailing on it and it can be dressed down for work and would make a really cute outfit for a BBQ, so I will definitely be wearing this one a lot.

Next I headed to River Island which is usually a hit and miss place for me. I was lucky enough to find this cute pair of flats on the sale stand for just £15.

I am loving the midi rings trend at the moment and River Island have some of the best I’ve seen, so I picked up a couple. They were only £2 each, so you could really have fun mixing and matching them. I also got this pack of 5 assorted ear cuffs for just £5.

I was not content with just the one pair of shoes so I headed to New Look, where I can normally find tons of pairs I like. I was a bit disappointed that none of the heels were appealing to me, but I did find these great black boots with cut out detailing. These are completely on trend and were only £28.

If you haven’t discovered them yet, have a look at the perfumes in Zara. I picked up a bottle of this Black Amber for only £7.99, and it smells just as great as the more high-end retailing perfumes for only a fraction of the price.

Thanks again Helena for hosting my haul, head over to my blog Just Me and Fruit Tea for more posts from me!
