Drop Dead Clothing Review/Mini-Haul!

Banjara Vest (Size XS-S, i'm a UK size 10-12, read below for info!) - £25; Madball Youth T-Shirt (Size youth large, which is an age 10-12) - £5 - Drop Dead Clothing

I sort of feel slightly embarrassed to say I've purchased something from Drop Dead haha! I used to buy/want Drop Dead clothing so much in my early teens around age 13-15, I was completely obsessed! But then we all grew up and it became somewhat of a mockery brand and aimed at the same age group of 13-15, but recently Drop Dead's A/W 2012 range has popped up quite a lot on the blogosphere, the main bit of interest seems to be in particular the 'I'm a fucking unicorn' vest which a lot of people seem to either already have or want! I decided to have a quick glance at the website as it sort of reminded me of UNIF's type of vests which I loooooove and after having a look I fell madly in love with the Banjara vest, after seeing a few pictures of it under the 'Drop Dead' hashtag on Instagram I decided to get the XS-S which is traditionally anything from a UK 6-10 but after seeing it on other people who looked like they got their regular size it seemed it was extremely baggy and larger fitting so I got the smaller size instead of the usual S-M that I normally am! 

Drop Dead are currently offering free delivery on orders over £30.00 over the Christmas period and the Banjara vest was £25.00 so I decided to look in their sale section to see if there was anything I could snap up for £5 so I could get free delivery and also a little something extra! Strangely enough, I ended up finding the Madball Youth T-shirt which is a kids version of a t-shirt Drop Dead previously sold, the largest size they had was 'youth large' which is an age 10-12 but after reading the measurements they were exactly the same as my measurements except the length, so I decided to take the risk and get the t-shirt, Purely to just wear as a bed/pyjama top as I love wearing t-shirts as bed-wear, I'm not a t-shirt wearer at all besides for that reason, mainly because they're comfortable but I don't think they suit me fashion/style wise! Any-who both items arrived yesterday and the age 10-12 top actually fits! it's a teeny bit short and ends just before my hips so it's definitely wearable, and gradually it'll stretch a bit more too so I highly recommend getting it if you don't want to pay £3/£4 for postage and would rather get something else cheap in order to get the free delivery if you're purchasing something for £25.

Also, Drop Dead are giving free 'secret santa society' goody bags with most orders (i'm not sure if you need to spend a specific amount) which includes a little zombie santa christmas tag (you can't write on the back unfortunately!), 2 'Drop Dead' stickers and I also received a peace necklace which is in the shape of Disney's Mickey Mouses hand, one side is a peace sign and the other side is swearing haha, easily amused! 

Hope you enjoyed this post!

J.W. Anderson Bat Jumper Dupe

I imagine this has gone around a bit on the blogosphere so far, but I recently found one of my christmas wish list items on Internacionale's website as they currently have 20% off and free delivery, This item was in the sale so it doesn't qualify for the 20% off unfortunately but still this is near identical to the hyped J.W. Anderson bat jumper that sold out very quickly! The J.W. Anderson jumper was priced at an expensive £69.99, so this cheaper £15.00 alternative is a steal! The two jumpers are very similar, except the Internacionale one has a slightly larger bat with a white/grey faded background behind it. I'm currently waiting for mine in the mail to try on, and if it fits okay it's going to be a Christmas present from a family member :) I will desperately try to piece an outfit together for you all when it arrives! I ordered a size Medium in case you are wondering, and I'm a UK size 10-12.

Hope you enjoyed this brief bargain post!

This is one of my Christmas presents that I got to try on early, so I had to take some sneaky pics! I got these in the Solestruck 50% off sale a few weeks ago, and they came to £75 with shipping, when they arrive I was charged a £20 customs fee so altogether cost me £95, which isn't too bad for Big Litas! My boyfriend is paying £70 towards these so they are a Christmas present but they are so pretty I had to show you guys asap! Super duper comfortable and they make me incredibly tall!

Recent Outfits (and items!) #12

Outfit 1: Daywear
Black disco pants - American Apparel 
(I caved and bought a new pair of AA ones from eBay!)

Okay, so not an outfit but I really wanted to include this in a post! I've been wanting a specific Topshop sequin bralet for a while now and even though it was on sale, it wasn't on the website or in my local store and was going for about £20 on eBay! I found a random seller selling this one from a brand called Pink Cadillac (sadly not on their website!) and I won it for £8.50 inc. p&p! I adoreeee it! I also bought a bargain off shoulder dress, my friend, Kirsty sent it to me and I really loved the Motel one so I had to buy this cheap alternative! It's apparently a UK size 6-8 but I'd say it's more of a size 8-10! 

Outfit 2: Daywear
Grey speckled hoody - Primark men's section
Black curve hem tank - Topshop (early this year, linked similar)
Black nylon tricot leggings - American Apparel (via eBay)
Lipstick in Cranberry (from The Berry Christmas Collection) - Sleep Make-up 

Outfit 3: Nightwear
Dark green velvet plunge dress -
Black nightwalks - Jeffrey Campbell (via eBay)
(Had to say a little something about this dress! I absolutely adore it and I am proud to say I fit into a UK size 10 [explains the last photo!] after starting out as a UK size 16-18 only a few months ago, I can't believe it! I'm going to wear this dress a fair bit over the Christmas period I think!)

Outfit 4: Daywear
Checked hooded jacket - Topshop (see outfit 2)
Black velvet pencil dress - American Apparel (via ASOS sale)
Black tights - Primark (Unsure what denier!)
Black neneh wedge - Office (sale)
