for once, sale shopping!

Usually, I avoid the sales at all costs, due to the crowds and crazy-ness of it all. Some friends of mine have actually received BRUISES on their legs from other shoppers kicking! Ridiculous!

However, this year, seeing how I've been surrounded by the sale and its garments, I couldn't help but resist these beauty's; A lovely, gltizy top from the Topshop's Kate Moss collections. I have to admit, I'd never seen this top in any magazines or even on their website (I maybe just have missed it!). But I love it so! It has the most awesome sleeves, bell-sleeves! (The best kind in my personal opinion!) I got it for £20 & it may be a size UK 10 but it seems to fit nicely and its meant to be a baggy top anyway :)
My other sale purchase;
This dress was originally £160, and I got it for £40 - *SQUEEEEEEEEEAH*! I think it was a return from Oxford Circus's Topshop as we did not get any of these fabulous Louise Goldin dresses up here in Edinburgh, but I was overjoyed when I seen it on a rail and could not believe someone hadn't bought it sooner!
I wore my new Kate Moss top on Saturday night as I headed for a few (too many) drinks with friends;

Quite similar to the last outfit I posted, but I do love me ankle boots and leggings!
Top; KAte Moss Topshop. Black vest (underneath top;) All Saints. Leggings; Lipsy & Boots; Primark.
I've caught the sales bug!! I wanna check out more! *please help*

Sea x.x.

I absolutely adore the top and that dress is just amazing! Great finds, if only the Topshop U.S. website wasn't a total ripoff....
