Online purchases

So after fretting last night that it is less than one week till our halloween house party that me and my boyfriend are hosting and I still haven't got an outfit, I began scrawling through loads of websites. I want to be a creepy doll. I've found the perfect face make up to do (theres a great one on Youtube!) but no freaky dolls costumes. I have no clothes to hack into and splash fake blood at either, they're all too good! So I've decided just to go for normal clothes but with a freaky face (although my 'normal' face can look freaky without make-up on so maybe I'll just go bare-faced and save all the effort? I think not).

I ended up on Dorothy Perkins website and ended up buying 2 dresses that were in the sale. They won't be to everyone's taste. The 2nd dress I actually bought with Las Vegas in mind. It's obviously a little too summery to be wearing now but thought it'd be perfect for strolling up and down the strip next year.

I bought this to be teamed with black tights. It's quite a versitile dress and could be dressed down for work or dressed up for a more colder night out. I love the detail round the neck and the flattering A-line style of this would suit my figure perfectly. A bargain at £15 reduced from £39.99.

 This pretty little feminine dress was a bargain at £10 reduced from £24. I'm a sucker for lace so I love the lace neckline. Again, another flattering style that suits most figures, cinching you in below the bust to a flowy skirt. Like I mentioned, I bought this with next years holiday in mind, but I suppose you could actually pair this with some thick opaque tights and a black slouchy cardigan and you'll be good to go!

Have you found any bargains in the mid season sales?

  1. I really like both those dresses! Especially the first one, love the colour and the style :) Can't wait to see your halloween look!



  2. I love that first dress - all the collar detailing is just divine!

  3. Lovely dresses, especially the polka dot one! My friends are going to Las Vegas for New Year this year, I'm not going to lie - I'm a little jealous lol! xx

  4. Colour of the first dress is amazing. Love the sleeves too. I always end up spending too much in the sales because I can't pass up a bargain x
