If I could I would ... week 2

Following on from last week, I've decided to make this a weekly feature.  These are the things I would buy in a heartbeat if my bank account was just a little more fatter than it is right now!

I spend hours on the internet looking at clothes, I help others out by finding items and as a result I see things that I love.

As always, it's high street all the way and if I find a bargain along the way then even better - Tesco ALWAYS has something if you look - they really are amazing at their bang on trend clothes at supermarket prices.  I cannot wait for Sainsbury's to catch up and get their clothes online too.

So my top picks for this week - it's a random 10 and in no particular order here they are:

Mint Velvet - Storm Skinny Cargo Jeans - £69

Dorothy Perkins - Charcoal knitted coccoon top - £18

Next - Pewter Sequin High Peep Toe Shoe Boots - £18

New Look - Black Stripe Burnout T-Shirt - £7.99

Coincidently all of the above would look AWESOME for a night out! Let's carry on and try and get away from grey/black!

Tesco - F&F Spot print flutter sleeve dress - £18.99

I couldn't possibly do a wish list of clothes without including Tesco and this dress reminds me of Julia Roberts at the Polo Match in Pretty Women.  Would look great with some nude heels I have and a cream blazer.

Tesco - F&F Limited Edition Side knot jersey dress - £25

This would be a great dress for work - all year round.  Team it with a blazer, tights/stockings and heels for the winter or wear on its own with tan courts/wedges in the Spring/Summer.

So what have you spotted this week?  Any lusts?  Wants?  Needs?  Must haves?

Until next week




  1. I couldn't get onto the Next site quick enough for those bargain shoes...but they are £38 not £18 however I still swoon for them!

  2. Love, love, love the Tesco dress! Am about to start work next week and am on a mega budget - I might just have to see if I can track that gorgeous dress down! Thanks for sharing! :-)

  3. @katie - Tesco and Sainsbury's do the most amazing work wear on a budget

    Good luck with the new job!

    If you want to buy show and share then do so on - real women showing off what they wear


  4. Hi Fiona - so I went to Mint Velvet today and bought the Cargo jeans, I felt like quite the informed fashionista as they hadn't yet put them on the rails - they wanted to know how I knew about them and I of course told them about your site :) Thanks for the tip off, they are fab. Will post a pic when I find a mo - school begins again tomorrow so I will be all over the place until we settle back into routine... And having read today's post - for the school run I shall be wearing skinny jeans, cowboy boots and a casual t! Toni

  5. ooh I'd love to see the jeans on a real person - please do post a pic on when you get a chance!

    I am inspired to wear cowboy boots tomorrow as I just watched Dallas - oh my, I have a new TV addiction and I don't ever watch TV!!!!
