designer, hot or not?

do you ever just look at items of clothing, and imagine what it would be like to wear them? i do all the time. its alright buying vogue every month, walking past all the designers in sloane square, and watching the kensington women in their dress up, yet sometimes i wonder what it would feel like actually being able to afford all this. sure, you can buy it at discount, or fake ones in foreign markets, but thats just not the real thing, so somehow it's just not quite satisfactory. the sparse designer items i own are technically not mine (ssh), stolen from my mother, they nearly fit. so, if any or you are feeling a bit like me, then here are some beautiful highstreet sales, hopefully affordable!
lace leggings- £22, Urban Outfitters

                                           floral pinafore- £38, Topshop

                                Jonny Makeup Top- £11, American Apparel


  1. thank-you for the comment my lovely,
    oh my goodness, that's such a good idea thank-you! i love it.
    i love this post to, i love urban outfitters it's just a bit expensive sometimes unfortunately and i go off my clothes to quickly xxx

  2. i know what you mean about the designer items. my mum has a vintage suede miu miu bag - it's not that great though lol! but i do own an alexander mcqueen belt which i bought myself at a sample sale :) love the lace leggings.

    enter my giveaway?


  3. i love the selection, mainly the leggings.
    it would be great to be able to afford boutique and designer clothes, don't get me wrong, but sometimes the clothes are just so ridiculously priced and look so silly that i'm fine with sticking to second hand or primark. other times, however, i would sell a kidney for them... x

  4. I love the leggings, tad pricey though - god I'm such a cheapskate :/ xx

  5. ok leggings are fantastic but i must to be honest-i am not so sure i would give this amount for them!:Dlol
