Happy Halloween + My Latest Purchases | Haul

Happy Halloween everyone!

I thought I would share my latest purchases with you:

Eyelash Knit Dip Dye Jumper Dress, £45 £30 @ Roman
I bought this jumper dress in Street, Somerset at the Clarks Village. It's super soft and cosy! Definitely has the fluff-factor! I love the dip dye effect. This is a versatile piece that I could stay cosy indoors with or dress it up with my faux leather trousers and a statement necklace for going out.

Silver Disc Necklace, £12 @ School Gate Style
I had been looking for an affordable statement necklace for a while and was so happy to stumble across this beauty! It has 9 dull, slightly beaten silver discs and sits on a delicate, adjustable snake chain. I love it! I can see this piece fast becoming a favourite!
I have to give a big thanks to Liz over at What Lizzy Loves as it was her own SGS purchase that led me to discover this one! Thanks Liz!

Floral Dress, £29.50 £23.60 @ A|Wear
I spotted this a little while back and instantly fell in love. I couldn't quite bring myself to part with the cash at the time, but the other day I saw the discounted price and just had to have it! So happy I bought it as it's now nearly sold out in all sizes! This dress is such a perfect Autumn piece and it can be dressed up or down for different occasions.

Bryce Boots, £59 £35 £17.50 @ JustFab
It was actually an online ad that brought me to discover this site. Basically, you sign up and fill in a quick style questionnaire then you are given a personalised boutique to shop from. If you become a VIP member you will receive an additional 50% off your first purchase, then any other footwear is £35. Unfortunately, there is a catch. Once you complete your purchase and become a VIP member, you will then receive a monthly email featuring a new personalised boutique to shop from. If you don't wish to make a purchase that month, you have until the 5th of the month to go onto your account and click "Skip The Month". If you fail to do this then you will be charged £35 which turns into a store credit which you can use on your next purchase. You can "Skip The Month" as many times as you like. You can also cancel your subscription at any time. I may place another order or two then I will probably cancel, just because I don't like the subscription idea.
On to the actual boots:

As always, I was skeptical about purchasing these as I don't often have much luck with footwear. I am pleased to announce that these fit very well and are super comfy! I love the distressed leather-look suede-feel material and the lining is sort of cushioned for ultra comfort. Very good quality except from one of the straps is stitched in place and the other is not. You can't really tell but I may remove both in the end as they still look great without the straps. I was more concerned about the fact that they actually fit! I also love the red zip detail at the back!

South Peplum Dolly Coat in Tweed, £55 @ Isme
I recently purchased this lovely new Winter coat. When it arrived it was damaged so I had to return it. Isme's replacement policy advises you to order as usual if you require a replacement. Well, I am refusing to pay a total of £7.90 in postage fees for another coat when it was down to their own fault that caused me to return it. I'm currently awaiting a reply to my email to see if they would oh-so-kindly give me free postage so I can re-order this coat. I hope they do as apart from the large hole around the lining of the arm, it was a great fit and overall a great coat! Fingers crossed. UPDATE: After numerous emails, Isme finally decided to refund my original postage of £3.95 so I now have the option to repurchase... or not?! Haha. I probably will but I think I may just go mad if it happens again!

Have a great Halloween guys!
