Sluttery Sales Spy: Joy, Fever & Urban Outfitters



I'm like a salesponge this week, sucking up all the best bargains and squeezing them out over your heads when you're feeling all hot and bothered and in need of a refreshing shop. Whee!

THE ACCESSORIES

Gem sunglasses, £10 (was £18), Urban Outfitters

Oh, hello Dream Sunglasses - I've been expecting you. Much like the second coming, I wasn't exactly sure when you would arrive, but I'll admit I was selfishly hoping it would be in time for summer. And it seems there is a Sunglasses God after all, because here you are, beautiful and bejewelled, ready to glint and glimmer and turn water into wine and fight UV rays in a peaceful and thoroughly reasonable manner. Praise be.

Triceratops necklace by Origami Jewellery, £80.50 (was £115), Boticca

Life might've worked out differently for the dinosaurs if they'd been made from folded paper. Luckily for us, there exists a snapshot of what history might have been like, thanks to the imaginatively-named Origami Jewellery and their triceratops necklace. He's a whole lot less frightening now, isn't he? No need to call Steven.

Bug earrings, £6 (was £12), ASOS

Following on from Sara's bee-inspired wares, I bring you some more blingsects in the form of these dazzling bug earrings from ASOS. On a related side note, the existence of ASOS Premier - £9.95 a year, for unlimited next-day delivery with no minimum order value - has completely passed me by until now. Don't y'all go telling me you've known about it for years, because all I'll say is, "WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME?".

THE SKIRTS

Louche Bay skirt, £25 (was £35), Joy

I like everything about the Bay skirt from Joy, number one being the cutesome print. Let's have a closer look:



It's as if Joy have drilled inside my skull and fished out the contents of the dreamworld that exists in my head. The only things they've missed are:
  • A campervan
  • Approx. 14 cats and 1 pug
  • Hilary Devey
  • One of those Turkish Delight jellies that M&S had on sale for about 6 seconds before discontinuing them.
  • Zoom ice lollies (RIP)
  • Fry's Five Centres chocolate bars (RIP)
  • Jeff Goldblum
Aside from all that, I think it's a pretty great representation, don't you?

McGregor skirt in citrus, £29.99 (was £59.99), Fever

Awkward! We've all been there - just taking a casual countryside stroll in our new citrus-print skirt from Fever, when all of a sudden we bump into an equally-beautiful woman wearing her new citrus-print dress. Then lo and behold, a fashion photographer pops out of a nearby bush and demands some snaps. Isn't it all just so inconvenient? Still, orange top lady here has done a mighty good job of concealing her disdain for the situation; Yellow Cardi can't cover up her seething rage.

Check midi skirt, £22.50 (was £45), ASOS

No need to carry around that bulky pad of graph paper now, ladies - just wear this checked midi skirt from ASOS and you'll be able to whip up a quick technical drawing or knitting pattern on your thighs, whenever the mood takes you.

THE DRESSES

Metallic lace dress, £39 (was £65), ASOS

Well, if you'd told me that lace and metallic finishes could be combined to create a dress that actually looks comfortable, I'd have said DON'T MAKE ME LAUGH. However. Here we have this metallic lace t-shirt dress from ASOS to prove that lacy and shiny ≠ stifling evening wear that you can't wait to get out of at the end of the night. Also: stripes. 

Jovonnista check dress, £30 (was £50), ASOS

I'm getting royal vibes from this Jovonnista dress. The checks remind me of a regal tartan armchair, or perhaps the upholstery in Princess Anne's Land Rover.


First of all, HAIR! Beautiful! Second of all, SKIN! Perfect! Third of all, FRUIT DRESS! Amazing. I'm clean out of adjectives now, but I think it's clear that I'm very much in favour of dressing up as a bowl of fruit.

Any sales success stories this week, you guys?

  1. I do love the origami dinosaurs.

    You know that skirt comes as a dress, right? With covered buttons? That's not on your dreamworld list, but who doesn't live a covered button?

    1. Oh, I love a covered button, you're right. They're the stars in my dreamworld.

    1. Hurrah! I'm so pleased! When someone says they've bought something I wrote about, I refer to it (in my head/sometimes on the phone to my mum) as 'making a sale'. You would think I designed the stuff, the feeling of pride I get! Hee.
