We're Buying.......July Fashion Finds

This is a new idea I thought we might try out on a monthly basis - showing our readers what we spend our pay packets on. Of course, cash flow will be the deciding factor in how regularly these posts occur.


Starting from the left - I picked up these gorgeous navy block heel wedge sandals in Penneys for €23. They also come in a delicious raspberry, but ever the sensible shopper I chose the colour that will mix best with my wardrobe.

Next purchase is a print dress from River Island (€40) I love this dress firstly because deep colours suit my complexion, secondly the silhouette is perfect for me - the high neckline makes my boobs bigger (no surgery necessary), and a gathered waist gives my straight figure some sexy curves. Plus, I already own a pair of red wedges which will look amazing for the rest of the summer and come winter I have block heel sandals and ankle boots in black to accessorize with.

Moving on to the knit jumper which I bought in Penneys for €14 this will turn a few of my dresses into skirts creating completely new outfits. I also plan to team with my skinny denims and add some girly vintage inspired accessories for easy everyday wear.

Lastly, I bought the slouchy bag in River Island for €30 having two reasons in mind; the colour burgundy is a key hue for Autumn/Winter 2011/12 and because it is to be worn across the shoulders and is quiet roomy it will be perfect for my press previews in Dublin.

For all you makeup junkies Shauna will be blogging about her beauty buys here also.
