Postcards From Tiny Islands






Jumper - H&M / Top - American Apparel / Skirt - American Apparel / Necklace - Cheap Frills

A ridiculously large portion of my wardrobe is made up of American Apparel clothes. Sadly for my bank account, that doesn't stop me from wanting to buy even more stuff. When I saw that they had 20% off on Cyber Monday I ordered a couple of pieces that I've had my eye on. I got this silky peter pan collar top because it goes with pretty much everything ever. Its oversized so if you're under a size 14 I would go for for the XS/S. I also got this double layered chiffon skirt which I'd been lusting over in the shop in Leeds. I was also going to order one of the cable knit jumpers but they didn't have the colour I wanted in stock. Instead I settled for this black jumper from H&M which was a lot cheaper at £12.99.

I've been looking for a nice cameo necklace for quite a while now and I finally found one that I like. I got mine from Cheap Frills. I'm completely in love with it and its such good quality. How cool is the red glittery wax seal on the packaging?! Cheap Frills have some really lovely jewellery which would make the perfect Christmas present. If you follow them on their Facebook or Twitter accounts you can get some exclusive offers and discount codes which is always a brucey bonus!
