Collective Fashion Haul

I don't usually go crazy with clothes shopping but since having getting paid and already got my bike, I thought I'd treat myself. This haul is a collective haul from about 2 weeks. I shall try to link all the garments for you!

Hello new followers! I love and adore every single one of you! Once I reach 100 I shall do a small giveaway for you to celebrate! Spread the word. If you like what you see and read, please follow by either using GFC or BlogLovin :)

H&M - £9.99

First off this is gorgeous top from H&M. It's from the Conscious Collection which you can read more about here. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it! For £9.99 it's pretty much a steal. The material is lovely and feels comfortable on the skin, the detailing is just as beautiful and it's a true fit. I am wearing a size 8 and fits perfectly. Obviously I'm wearing mine with a white strappy top underneath to cover my boobies. This top would also be perfect underneath a plain coloured jumper.

H&M - £12.99

Again, this top is from H&M. It's a silky blouse that is in a light mint green. The back is slightly longer than the front and is sheer. This is a gorgeous top which can again be worn underneath a jumper. I can't find this online but you should be able to find it in your local store. I bought this in a size 6 which is smaller than I would usually buy and this one still looks big...

New Look - £11.99

This top is from New Look. Again it's a mint green colour and initially I wasn't going to keep this but I thought why not! It is from their Generation teens range but it fits. It's a lovely soft cotton with gold buttons. I prefer things that have back cut outs as my boobs aren't exactly the biggest thing in the world. 

New Look - £7.99

I've seen similar scarves to this flying around blogs and the high street so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon and get one! It's quite a big size but it's perfect for little old me! As you can see, it's got skulls and roses on.Very me seeing as I have a rock star of a boyfriend! I love it! Especially as it's a dupe for the Alexander McQueen scarf!

Ark - £12.99

A new store opened in Chapelfield around Christmas time called Ark. Every time I've been in recently, I've had my eye on this top. It's a slouchy, wide sleeved top with a cross. It'd be perfect for dancing in and just chilling out in. I don't think I'll be able to wear it for work due to the cross but I still bought it anyway! It's not your usual t-shirt material, it's SOO soft! I am wearing a S/M.

H&M - £12.99

I saw this while I was helping out on the tills downstairs at Divided in my H&M store. It caught my eye and my shift after I ran downstairs and bought it! It's a size 8 and it's a bit tight but the more I wear it, the looser it'll become. It's the perfect length as I prefer short to long (me being a short bum too!) and hopefully it'll get warmer so I can wear it without tights! I am addicted to the skater dress as it suits every body type perfectly. All I need now is a tan belt, recommend? It's definitely a dupe for the dress by Dolly Bow Bow that has been ever so popular thanks to Pearls and Poodles! Again I can't find this online but it'll be in your local store. 

Ark - £17.99

Again, another garment I've been eyeing up. All the ones I've previously seen have been poorly made. Some things in Ark are really good and others are crap. Luckily I picked up this size 8 and it was pretty much perfect. I needed some new shorts as my ones from River Island are so old! You can see them in action here! I am quite liking printed shorts, especially flowy ones like these. It gives you definition to a small frame. These are a size 8 and you can either wear them high waisted or around your hips as they are elasticated. 

Hollister - £14

AND FINALLY! So my love for Hollister grows. I know it's a very hit and miss brand, you either love it or hate it. I LOVE it. I can't resist a good pair of Hollister flip flops, an iconic part of the Hollister/Abercrombie brand. These are the rubber ones which are only £14. You can pick up the leather ones for near enough double but they will have to wait. The rubber ones come in many different colours and they also provide for the men too! I have yet to wear them properly as the weather has been crap. I can't wear these for work for obvious reasons so I will wear them for days out and trips around Norwich!

This has seemed like such a MASSIVE haul. I'm sorry if you took you hours to read, It definitely took me hours to write and edit!

Just a quickie for you! If you are a keen YouTube video watcher (like me) then you will know that Tanya Burr, Fleur and Jim have gone to America for IMATS and a holiday. If you are interested then I shall leave the links (vlog channels only. main channels will be linked in their names) to every one who is vlogging (yes I am subscribed to these and many more)!
