New purchases

Spring is here which means a new wardrobe! If you are like me, and your style changes from year to year, you will be frantically hitting the shops in search of a whole new look.

Here are a few of my favourite pieces I've picked up recently.

Bag - TK Maxx
I picked up this amazing turquoise leather bag in TK Maxx (bargain hunters paradise!) The turquoise pastel colour is ticking the box one of Springs major trends. When you are pale like myself it's easy to look washed out when wearing pastels, but by playing with accessories in the pale shades, you can avoid looking like you have the lurgy!

 Jeffrey Campbell Wedges - TK Maxx
Not going to lie - I did a happy dance in TK Maxx when I found these. They are insanely comfy and I'm already planning to wear them with so many different outfits when the sun comes out.
Sandals - Dorothy Perkins
I wasn't expecting to find a pair of amazing holiday sandals very quickly, but Dorothy Perkins proved me wrong. These amazing cream leather sandals with gold fastenings are currently in their sale for only £15. GO GO  GO!

I won't lie.. these are just a small selection of the bits and bobs I've been picking up recently. With people having wardrobe clearouts in preperation for the new season, Ebay is crawling with incredible outfits. Be patient in your searching, and think about exactly what it is you are looking for. Typing 'pink dress' into the search engine may seem like a big mistake - it will toss up outfits not even a camel would wear. Power through and you may be amazed at what you find. Try filtering by size, and adding keywords referring to what trend you are looking for e.g pleats.

I like to filter by time ending soonest simply because I hate waiting around for days for an auction to finish. You may find a beauty that ends in a matter of seconds ... cue mad ebay bidding war!
