Spring/Summer thrifty fashion picks

I’m a little slow off the mark on this one but here are my thrifty fashion picks for S/S 2013!

Pink crucifix Forever 21

I’m in love with Forever 21’s jewellery range and own a fair amount of it!

Every time I walk in (which is pretty much every day as I work just above it!) I have to check out the new jewellery.

I love cross necklaces and the matte pink colour and matching chain is a great twist. Also, it’s super cheap so I’ll be getting one.

Mona Lisa Sweat Sugarpills

Sugarpills is an amazing new brand and I absolutely love their irreverent trademark images usually taking something well-known like this Mona Lisa and give it a modern feel!

Most of their stuff has quite a unisex vibe, this top could work for a girl or a guy and I saw pictures of both guys and girls rocking it!

American Apparel Print Denim Shorts

Where to start these are just gorgeous! They are high-waisted which is really flattering although not after a big dinner! 😛

I spend a disproportionate amount of time in American Apparel literally drooling at their gorgeous clothes and I will try these on when/if we get better weather.

I would wear them with a plain top and ideally a tan…

They also come in a blue and white print if you don’t fancy this one but these just scream summer to me.

Cambridge Satchel Company “The Chelsea”

The Cambridge Satchel Co. have really amazing simple leather bags and this collection is no exception. It’s a new range of pastel colour satchels in cream, lavender, peach and blue.

I picked the pastel blue to show as blue is my favourite colour.

If the Cambridge Satchel Co. is a bit out of your price range (mine too) try LYDC in Soho Market in Stephen’s Green for lookalikes or Zatchels.co.uk.

Print Backpack Forever 21

I love backpacks but haven’t bought one yet. It’s a bit too close to a “school bag” for comfort but yet so cool!

This really caught my eye though, again love the print. I also like the denim and studded ones that are doing the rounds. Let me know what you think, would you go for one or is it a bit inconvenient?

Spike Pumps Miss Selfridge

These Miss Selfridge shoes actually went into sale but unfortunately, my size was miles too big for me and the next size too small. 🙁

Spikes and studs are still everywhere and I absolutely love them and have a ridiculous amount of spiked and studded clothing! Love these bad boys!

Finally, china print/willow prints will be huge this year and I love them.

 Penneys Dress.

Update: I found this in the charity shop for €4 five years on…

Hope you all enjoyed this post. I haven’t included any prices except ones I was certain of as I got some of the items from websites and the currency conversions are sometimes incorrect. Happy shopping!
