New purchases from City Chic and ASOS because

I have finally finished tidying up by blog after giving it a bit of a make-over.

Doesn’t it look fabulous?

It was quite interesting looking at some old posts of mine. I realised just how far I have come. My confidence has grown, anger has dissipated and I am so much happier.

But enough about that, do you want to see some of my new purchases?

I might have been a little naughty and made purchases from both ASOS and City Chic this week, but I’m justifying it because I didn’t pay full price for anything.

First ASOS.

New Look Inspire Marilyn Monroe T-shirt:



I kind of wish I had gotten this up a size, but at the same time I’m sure it will stretch. Plus it’s Marilyn, I don’t want to return Marilyn! It says, “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” It is still available here.

New Look Inspire Aztec Print Singlet:

I am wearing this right now and I am in love with it. At first I was a bit dubious, but over the course of the day, it has stretched out a bit and now sits quite well. It will definitely look great paired with a dark denim jean, although I have only worn it with leggings today. It is also still available.

Also, I have learned that I probably need to size up with the Inspire range from ASOS compared to when I’m buying Curve.

Last is the ASOS Curve Exclusive T-Shirt With Holographic Check Print:

I decided to buy this one because I thought it would be the same as my other grey tee from ASOS with gems on the shoulder. Which I love and I now wish I had have bought two. Unfortunately the fit is a tad different and I still don’t know how I feel about this one. The sleeves actually aren’t rolled up as in the picture, so I’m going to have to do that myself – a couple quick stitches will secure the folds in place. But I’m sure if I wear it, it will stretch a bit and look a bit better, the tops from ASOS seem to do this. It is also still available here.

Now from City Chic.

Lace Stud Peplum Top:

As soon as I saw this I knew I had to have it. Yellow, lace and studs – what more was there to love? This is only the second peplum I have bought, but I think I love it even more. I decided to size up, as my other one keeps riding up whenever I wear it. It sits comfortably and I don’t think I will be having that problem with this one. Only thing I will have to do is buy a new bra. I pretty much only have coloured bras, so they won’t go well with this. I’m thinking a nude strapless would be a goer as not only nude straps, but also it means I could get some clear straps to put on it. This has only been available from City Chic for about a week, so it is definitely still available. It also comes in Melon and Black.

Lastly I got the All Zipped Up Skinny Jeans:

I seem to have a love-hate relationship with jeans. I love them because they are so comfortable and can be dressed up or down. But I hate them because they can be so hot during the summer and a pair usually only lasts me about six months. I have recently had my black TDF jeans rip in the thighs rendering them unwearable. I only bought them in April/May. My blue pair have also gone the same way after only buying them last November. Even though both pairs have split, they are still the best fitting jeans I have ever had and will be buying more as soon as possible. However, when I saw this pair I fell in love instantly and thought they would pair well with the above peplum. These are also still available.

I ended up using my $30 voucher on this purchase, saving me from paying full price. And I have to say, I love the new CC Nation loyalty programme. I always thought the old one was a bit redundant – why was I swiping my card with every purchase when I got no rewards? But now I will get something for my excessive purchasing. I’m totally looking forward to the buy one bra, get one free and the free shipping on any order. Yes, I have Glam status.

I will start including these in a few outfit posts, unfortunately I couldn’t share proper photos of myself wearing them this weekend as my photographer is in New Zealand. Soon, I promise.
