I’ve been on an absolute retail therapy spree recently, but at least I’ll be meh and dressed decently. Before this Urban Outfitters haul, there’s another one that I need to post about – where I took major advantage of their 20% off for students offer – which I do believe is still on! However, there is currently a pretty damn good mid-season sale on with many pieces up to 50% off. Here are my picks:
Admittedly, I’m wouldn’t buy this jumper if I just saw this picture. However, it is much less boxy than it seems here and the colour is a lot darker and acid-y. The lining inside is absolutely lovely and soft, meaning it’s good for wearing alone with shorts/leggings – or it can be paired with a shirt underneath. I’d go with a lacy black number underneath, collar popping over the top – just the right mix of gothic preppy.
Again, sheesh Urbies, I’m really not liking these pictures. I tried this on and it looked floaty yet offering a little edge from the cut out shoulders. Makes collar bones look lovely, but can make skinny ladies look very rakish so approach with caution – I like that barely there look though, myself. I’ll be wearing this with skinny dark blue jeans or a black tube skirt and Docs.
Everyone needs a more professional looking watch. I had one trusty Swatch watch which has wiry leather strap strands that look a bit like computer wires – very cool, but clashes with practically everything. So, I saw this little beauty and had to snap it up. One thing I must say is it might look a little odd on people with dainty wrists – the end of the strap doubles over so it’s nearly at the clock face. Hmm.
Have you checked out the Urbies sale yet? If so, what did you pick up?
