I didn’t realise it, but I really did buy quite a few accessories this month!
As well as my Primark pieces, which I have shown more clearly here, I also picked up a few things from Urban Outfitters, H&M, TK Maxx, River Island and Saltaire Vintage Fair! Oops! I LOVE the high street, but probably shouldn’t enter town for a while.
I don’t only buy the cheapest stuff ever, but it’s been a lucky month!
One shop that I adore is TK Maxx! Especially the one in Leeds, it’s much less ‘jumble-sale’ than the others that I’ve been to, and is huge! I always find something I want, either in the clothing, accessories or home section. They have amazing pieces from great brands. I can’t get enough of it and go there every time I’m in town – which evidently from this page is too often!
I didn’t get too much on my last visit, but what I did get was perfect!
I have recently started sewing, and I’ve tried using YouTube videos – the go to for learning anything for me! – but I don’t actually have a clue about even the basics. I did somehow magically manage to make a skirt though! This book has everything from basic stitches, to how to read patterns, and works up to the more complicated stuff. It’s brilliant for someone just starting out like me, and I know I’ll use it a lot.
I’ve wanted a layered necklace for a while, but couldn’t find any that I liked. This Steve Madden one is perfect, I love the movement of the 3 part leaf and the little details.
Last time I also picked up this Ollie & Nic cosmetic pouch for only £6! It’s such great quality and I’ll definitely be looking at more of their stuff. It’s great for popping in my bag and I carry any essentials in it, so I can easily transfer them each time I change bags, which is a lot!
I love scarves. I love them so much, I pretty much collect them. They completely change an outfit and can be styled in so many ways. This one is by Roxy, and is actually a snood. It looks great worn long or wrapped around under a coat. I love the colour (which looks different in different light according to these pictures!) and pattern.
Next stop was Urban Outfitters. I bought a head chain from Claire’s Accessories before Leeds fest. It looked great, but turned my head green! I had green dots where the little pieces sat. I have more faith in Urban Outfitters and l love the turquoise detail. There was a discount event on too as it was Freshers Week.
Having heard a lot about blending sponges, but never using them, I thought I’d give them a try. 2 for £7 is a bargain.
Also picked up a couple of things in River Island, including their perfume. I never usually try perfume in high street shops, but my cousin suggested it and it’s soo nice! I bought a large bottle, and a small rollerball matching one for my bag.
