The Rabbit and The Wolf

Dress - Threads 
Jacket - TU 
Bag - H! By Henry Holland 
Boots - Topshop 
Necklace - H&M 

This is what I wore for a night out for a 21st birthday. I found this dress on sale rail in Debenhams naturally being drawn in by the collar. I've never heard of the brand Threads before nor can I find any information about them. It makes me wonder if it had been abandoned in the back for awhile and now the brand doesn't exist which is a real shame because the I love everything about this dress. Surprisingly I found the jacket in Sainsburys for half price, I wasn't even in the market for a new leather (well, PU leather) jacket made me realise how battered the one I've been wearing since I was 18 was. I had been on the hunt for some more casual heels when I came across these boots, again on sale, even though they don't have much of a heel the platform adds that extra bit of height I was after. Now that I think about it the only full price item was the necklace, at £3.99 it wasn't exactly breaking the bank. 

What's your latest sale finds?

 Dress - Coast 
Cardigan - Principles 
Shoes - Schuh 

There's something about about Coast dresses that I always love but never anywhere fancy enough to wear the beautiful occasion dresses, and normally more than I'm willing to pay for a dress I won't wear often. I came across this dress last summer it was originally £95 and I think it was on sale for about £28. A good bargain when you think about it. This dress originally had full length sleeves, unfortunately something that does not suit me but I was too in love with the way the dress fitted and moved to leave it behind. Off the sleeves came. I just love how the skirt swishes about, which you can probably tell by these photos. Despite how much I love it I don't wear it enough because the cut out give me a bit of a ridiculous cleavage that I can only get away with for a night out. I keep meaning to get some sheer fabric to put in the cutouts so that I can get away with taking it on daytime outing. The cardigan was one of those things that I picked up when looking for wedding outfit before I had a dress. Black and cropped I thought it was a safe bet and something that I could wear again.
