HAUL: COS, RIVER ISLAND & MORE.

here's just a few things i've purchased recently. my bank balance is currently in a depressed state...

i've actually been after some high waisted leather trousers for a while, but i've never seen any others i like. at £11 (with staff discount) these high waisted leather trousers couldn't be missed.  they're perfect for day and night, teamed with a simple top and some chunky boots. 

the office boots you may have seen in a previous post. whilst working at office shoes, there's always a pair of shoes you've got your eye on and these were the one's for me. they're super comfortable, but i probably wouldn't be able to walk around in them all day every day. my feet start to hate me after a while. i don't think i've fully broken them in yet but, when i have i'll definitely be wearing them as often as possible during the winter weather. 

one of my favourite purchases recently has to be this river island quilted top. the material is so soft and it's so easy to wear. i paid around £22 for this with a double student discount offer but, typically, it's now gone into sale for £15. i actually ordered this in a size 12, purely because i wanted it to be oversized and loose. one grumble about this top is probably the quality. i regularly find bits of cotton and material on the inside but, i think it's just the type of fabric it is. 

cos will always be one of my favourite places to shop, it's just a shame about some of the not-so-student-friendly prices. for basic t-shirts and vests, i can't grumble as they're probably the comfiest things i've ever worn. the materials are ridiculously soft, and they're reasonably priced. this high neck top was in the sale for around £20, i think. it's great for layering and keeping warm! if i could afford to buy my entire wardrobe from cos, i would. 

primark have really excelled this season in my opinion; i actually really like a lot of their current collection. i got this shirt for £9 and it's become a wardrobe staple for me; so much so that i've now bought it in black. oops. these concealed button shirts are so easy to wear with anything. it's stupidly comfortable and, for once, i don't feel like this primark product is going to drop apart. what do you think of their current collection?

if any of you follow me on twitter you may have seen a while ago, i got a new job at a vintage shop called 'cow.' as it's a vintage shop, there's only one of each product so, when you see something you like, you get it (or risk missing out.) i'm aware it's not the most feminine shirt but, i'll most likely wear it over a t-shirt for the cold winter approaching.

what have you been buying recently?
