Currently loving : Cut out Ballerinas and Leather Totes





NEXT-CUT-OUT-SHOES-WILLOW-TOTE-BAG-DUPE



After seeing some of my blogger friends instagramming photos from the Next Take Over event they recently attended, I found myself hopping across to their website to have a browse of some of their stock.
Now, I do like Next on the basis that you can have a flexible account, meaning the item is sent to you before parting with your cash. Giving you the chance to decide if you are happy with what you have ordered before fully committing  plus you can just return it to your local store, so no return fees occur. That's my kind of shopping! :-) Obviously if you want to keep it you pay your balance on your account, simples!

With that in mind I am extremely tempted to treat myself to both one pair of these cut out ballerina shoes. I'd seen similar ones in Topshop which I would have purchased, if their sizing fit me - Even their size 3's are too big for me! The combination of the pointed toe, small studs and cutout detailing that just draws me in. As the weather is getting a little warmer, I want to ditch my trusty boots for something a bit more spring like, and these fit the bill. I can just picture my outfit now... the fitted blazer, crisp white shirt, skinny jeans and these beauties on my feet, perfection!

You'll probably guess why the trapeze tote bag caught my eye, yes it has features similar to a certain designer handbag that I know a lot of people are lusting after. However what I like the most though was that it reminded me of a  leather tote bag Zara brought out a year or so ago, with the suede panels on each side. Something this bag also has with the addition of zip detailing - I like! I always hate it when you find a bag you like but then discover its from a past season and you can no longer purchase it! If I were to get this then I would be filling that void! - Because I really need more handbags right? It's a classic colour and design that would last you a long time, its hard to say no when youre as handbag obsessed as me! 

If you've seen my 'how to save money online' post then you will know that I am a big fan of Topcashback, Next is one of the retailers that work with TCB, so technically if I purchase through them I could get money back for my purchases.. justified? I think so.... 


Much Love,
