Real life is taking outfit photos in Budapest, thinking you look sassy as fuck and then as you’re writing the post, seeing that there is DRY SHAMPOO ALL OVER U. But you know what gals, that’s life, it happens to us all, and at least you know I do ridiculous things too.
Anyway, beauty blunders aside, what I really want to talk about in this post is bargain buys from Boohoo. I’m a huge fan of Boohoo, but I know that sometimes you have to sift through endless bodysuits before you get to the good, quality pieces. Why is it that every website ever sells ribbed tube skirts and paisley everything, but when it comes to monochromatic, tailored pieces, you have to search with the persistence of a dog searching for that one last dropped crumb?
I work with Boohoo a lot which means I invest just as much time in searching and finding hidden gems. It’s fast fashion on a budget which means the quality isn’t going to be the same as somewhere like COS, but it’s great for picking up trend items and experimenting when you’d rather not spend the big bucks. And, as I said before, there are often hidden gems that just require that extra bit of digging and keyword expertise to find. The beautiful thing is that since I’ve done it, you don’t have to. The wonders of fashion blogging eh?
Take this bell sleeve crepe top for example (can’t say crepe with thinking of pancakes, sorry). The flared sleeves are not only super chic but perfectly on trend, and coming in both black and white, it’s a seemingly classic piece for a totally bargain price. I think when searching any high street site for pieces with a higher end appearance, there are a few golden rules you should always stick to:
I’ve rounded up some of the bargain Boohoo tops I love at the moment and popped them into the shoppable slider down below – let me know which pieces you like and if you’ve picked any up yourself! Until next time sweets x
