Here is the 2nd part to my Collective haul for April/May (finally!), I've been waiting for stuff to come in the post etc!
MAC Reel Sexy Collection Lipstick in Heroine - Debenhams - £13.50
I've been lusting after MAC's Violetta lipstick for a while now and realised it was discontinued so when I saw they were doing a similar shade of lipstick in one of their Spring collections I had to purchase it! I prefer it over Violetta, it's a brighter purple colour whereas Violetta has more of a pink purple shade! This is now sold out on MAC's website and Debenhams so I'm not sure where you can get it now but I absolutely love it, Hopefully when this runs out I will find a dupe elsewhere or they will bring back a similar colour!
Black Faux Leather Wedges - H&M - £14.99
I got these wedges cheaper than £14.99 as I had a few discount codes, You can use two in conjunction with each other as I've said before in previous blog posts, so I think I got these for about £10 altogether including delivery! There was a £5 off code you could use for literally about 2 years but in my last order I made after these shoes It was taken off as apparently it's a code you're not supposed to use (I rang them up to ask about my discount being taken off) and they said were sending out letters informing everyone? I am still yet to receive any letter from H&M so they're not particularly my favourite brand at the moment for shouting at me down the phone because I used a code I found online on a voucher codes website? Anyway, You've probably seen these around the bloggy universe anyway, they seem to be quite a favourite!
Gold Spike Necklace - eBay - £2.74
I've seen this around and really liked it but a lot of people got it from ASOS for like £15, it's completely identical to the ASOS one yet mine was just under £3 (I bidded on one though they do have buy it now's for around the same price, I've added a buy it now link!)
Black & White Striped Chiffon Blouse - eBay - £7.98 (inc. p&p)
You may have seen I recently bought what I like to call a 'Beetlejuice' blouse from Topshop for £38, I couldn't justify keeping something for that price when it was quite simple anyway and when I saw this on eBay for only £8 I decided to take the Topshop shirt back, I thought this one looked 'edgier' with the faux leather collar and cuffs also! It's one size best for sizes UK 8-12 but I went by the measurements and it's the perfect slightly oversized fit for a UK 14-16 but in the eBay photos you can see on the size 8 mannequin that it's very oversized on a small figure. I was pretty happy it fit me considering it wasn't aimed to fit someone my size. I'll be posting a few pictures of recent outfits soon and I have one with this shirt so you can see the fit on my shape! There is also someone selling this in the UK for about £11 (inc. p&p) if you would rather not wait as the seller I bought from was a Chinese seller.
Giorgio Denim Shirt (Size Men's Large) - eBay - £7.50 (inc. p&p)
I thought I would get this shirt as It really reminded me of the Monki denim shirt that I've been eyeing up for a while, I messaged the seller to ask whether they would do a buy it now for this shirt as a lot of denim shirts on eBay tend to be bidded on easily and can end up being about £10 before you know it! The seller accepted £5 excluding postage which I was pretty happy with compared to the Monki shirts being about £30! It's a good oversized fit and thinner than a denim jacket so it's great to wear in the summer months!
White Sheer Cropped Skull Blouse - MissRebel - £17.99
I know it's pretty bad this in part 1 of this haul post I had a similar shirt in black with white skulls but I have such an obsession with skulls at the moment haha! This is also in a Large (12-14) but it's a very giving and loose fit and would probably fit up to a size 18. It's cropped though so I recommend tucking into a skirt etc. unless you like your belly being out!
Sheer Black Blouse with Gold Collar Tips - Select Fashion - £14
This shirt sold out pretty quickly and I think they only have this in other colours left now (Ivory & Navy!) I only have oversized black shirts, I haven't got a slimmer fitting sheer black blouse and I've really wanted one I could tuck into skirts etc. The 'western style' gold collar tips attached to the shirt make it extra special and it goes wonderful with my eBay gold spike necklace!
Black Jersey Skater Skirt - H&M - £4.99
I bought this online in the H&M sale, this was the item I purchased when they took off my discount so I wasn't really happy about that but to be fair it was still pretty cheap without the discount! I got a size medium which is a 14-16 and it was actually pretty loose on my waist so I have to wear it with a belt, I think if you have a small waist I'd recommend sizing down!
D.I.Y Gold Spike Belt - Around £3/£4 - eBay & Primark
I made this myself today as I'd bought a plain black buckle belt from Primark and wanted to make a gold spike belt sort of similar to the infamous Topshop spike belt, £22 for a simple belt you can make yourself is ridiculous and all the belts similar on eBay were a minimum of about £10! I decided to make my own, I bought 20 gold spikes from a chinese seller for £2.79, It took 2 weeks to arrive and the belt I bought from Primark for about £1-£2. I used 14 out of the 20 spikes for this belt and a leather hole puncher to make holes for the screw back spikes to be placed in. I tightened the backs with a screwdriver so they're much more secure than normal studs (and feel comfier when you're wearing it!).
This was a gigantic haul in both parts but I've gone a bit shopping mad recently so please forgive me! ;)
Hope you enjoyed the babbling!
P.S. I haven't been posting much recently due to my recent D.I.Y project, as you would of seen in my last post I have been making acid wash/dip dye shirts and selling them on eBay, I'm continuing with this at the moment but have a lot more up on eBay and have also made some shorts recently too, If you're interested please click here :)
