What a saving!

Hello new followers, I hope you like my blog!
This is another fashion related blog but expect some baking ones as soon as my 24PCS icing piping nozzle set arrives!
Healed Brogues: Primark - £12
(Topshop - £60)
Lace Skater Dress: Zara (TRF) - £30
(Topshop - £50)
Total saving of: £68!!!!!

I thought this outfit was a big student absolute bargain, it is a Topshop outfit without the Topshop prices!  Since Topshop has become a lot more expensive with the rise of VAT I've become more attuned to finding bargains and you all can too!  All you have to do is go rooting through the shops, and if not then the internet is an amazing thing and Zara updates their collection every Monday, their clothes are better quality, cheaper and if you are tall like me it saves you visiting the forever shrinking 'Tall' section of Topshop.  Zara is a Spanish company so is naturally tailored for tall Spanish women and that is why their trousers are wonderfully long!  If you don't have time to pop in to town visit their new ZARA UK website.  Unfortunately Primark is not online yet but hopefully it will be soon as Zara and Hennes&Mauritz have been the most recent chains to jump on to the digital bandwagon it should pressure them a bit more.
I hope this blog was useful for any students who read my blog posts! Have a great weekend everybody!

God, I absolutely love Zara.
There's one right around the corner of my flat and I swear there's a magnet inside that is seriously attracted to me.
Great outfit.
