Pretty little things!

Topshop have done good....again! My last post was all about these gorgeous Finest lace-up shoes, I've since uncovered a couple more gems from Toppers! Whilst I was instore searching for this gorgeous number.....




 I spotted this gorgeous little top.....in the sale!!


The Daisy dress was nowhere to be seen (was promptly ordered online though!) and even though the top was covered in make-up, it had to be purchased!! So I snaffled it for £18, dashed home to stick it on a hot wash and hey presto! Here....


Here.....


And here!!



There was me thinking I was over the sales purchases!! This one was just too good to miss and the fact I wore it twice in one week....well, it's already paying for it's keep!

So how did I fare with the Daisy dress? 


I love it! Can't wait to wear it!!

Here's what I've been wearing lately!


DKNY biker jacket, ancient T K Maxx purchase

Pull & Bear dress, Spring/Summer 2014

A quick word on the capsule wardrobe/wardrobe cull. As a few new purchases go into the wardrobe, there are many more going out! This is still a huge ongoing process for me. I've reduced my Spring/Summer wardrobe by at least 50% (yikes!) and I'm already planning what I will be moving out to make way for whatever tickles my fancy for A/W 2015. I've just left my job and so have rid myself of the majority of my workwear....I have been utterly ruthless ladies!! I have lots of lovely empty flock hangers and there is much eBaying to be done! No plans to go back to work for a while so I need to reign in my spending and be shrewd about what I buy! It's not going to be easy!! I'm up for the challenge though.....are you still with me?!

*** I have had a few enquiries as to my eBay username....it's Buttercup0308. There are just a few summer bits on there at the moment but in the next few weeks I will start to list some A/W clothing. Thanks for the interest! :0) ***

  1. Love all of these outfits. What is the sizing like on the dress? I am usually an 8 but sometimes find their 8 a bit snug. Would you email me your ebay seller name as would love to see what you are selling. n.whitham@btinternet.com Thanks for another inspiring read. X

    1. Hi Alex, I think the sizing is spot on, I'm wearing a size 10 which is my usual size in TS. I have added my eBay seller name to the post above, I will email you too! Glad you enjoyed the post, it's always lovely to hear that! :0) xx

    1. Thanks Sue....I just can't get enough of Toppers at the mo! I'm trying to avoid going in there so I don't do any more damage! :-o xx

    1. Thanks so much Heidi, lovely to hear I may have given you a few ideas! Yep, I need to be shrewd....it's so hard when the new A/W stuff comes as it's easy to get sidetracked. I'm going to start off by buying a few basics, things that need replacing then see what trend items I fancy to update the good old classics I already have. I'm really looking forward to going through my A/W stuff and deciding what will survive my next cull.....let's get ruthless! Konmaring everything first makes it easier to see the wood for the trees! Thank you for the lovely comment! xx

  5. Oooh Michelle, that Topshop dress is such a winner, I hadn't spotted it, so thanks for sharing, I can imagine you will get loads of wear from it, and I dont expect it will be around for long either.....So you were totally justified in getting it!!.....And your white top was a great late summer addition!
    Enjoy your new found freedom not working....Lucky you!!

    1. The TS dress is a delight Helen....I love, love , love it! I've had a little try on and it looks great with boots and a leather jacket, lovely with sandals and gorgeous with the Ghillie style shoes too...very versatile me-thinks!
      A life change has been on the cards for a while and I've finally taken the plunge. I'm going to enjoy the rest of the school holidays with my girl, then start to plan my next move! I will probaby temp for a while to see if I can find a job that fits! xx

  8. I caught a few comments about the new Topshop black dress and unbelievably, I guessed it was this one. Glad you're up for a bit of widow chic too!

    So the job's gone now. Exciting times ahead!

    1. Oh I love it Sue! I'm glad I hung on as I almost ordered the & Other Stories one and I'm glad I did as the fabric of the TS one will mean I can wear it all year around, whereas I think I'm right in saying the & Other Stories one is a bit more cheese-clothy?! Anyway, hopefully there is a method in that madness! I do love a bit of widow chic....love the fuller skirt on the Toppers dress too!

      I finished on Wednesday, such a relief. A few lazy weeks ahead, then heads down to focus on my next step! Definitely excited! :0)

  10. Love your style and outfits as always. The capsule wardrobe of winners is really forming now. Love the Topshop pieces!! I too need to hit Ebay with a vengeance. I made the mistake of going to Zara and all I can say is that their Autumn collection is a danger zone. Not the mantra of a girl on a mission for a minimal wardrobe. Lol! I adore your outfit pics Michelle. Looking fabulous as always. Great post xx
