ChitCHAT, New Years Eve OOTD & January Sales Haul | MegBolderson.

Hello bloggers. I hope you have all had a very Merry Christmas and New Year! I realised that I have had a few comments on 'My ultimate MAC products' post that I wrote not so long ago. I'm glad you all found it helpful, it really does make me happy when I get feedback on posts, it lets me know that you guys actually took your time to read my thoughts on those products, I thank you for that! Also I received a few MAC products for Christmas too so if you would like me to review them, please do not hesitate to let me know. Reviewing items is so much fun, I would be happy to help! Lastly, I need a little guidance thinking of New Years resolutions, I mean I know we are now into the first week of January but I feel kind of guilty not setting myself any goals or resolutions for the year ahead. I guess your supposed to think of them yourself, but if you have any ideas please tell me. The following image is what I wore on New Years Eve. 

This is a picture of me wearing a stunning dress by Lipsy London. It is rose gold with sequins all over. It is absolutely gorgeous and was perfect for New Years Eve! It was 50% off therefore it was £27.50 down from £55 which I think is a complete steal. If you're looking for a dress for a big event or party this is perfect as it works well with the flash of a camera and shimmers in all the right places. My shoes were purchased from Pop Boutique in Leeds but I think there are a few Pop Boutique stores throughout the UK.

 To cut to the chase, I have been indulging in both online and in-store shopping over the holidays and wanted to show you what's out there for you to snatch up. Of course it's that time of year when stores have their annual winter sale and pretty much sell everything for 50% off. That is brilliant, but when you bought the dress you so urgently needed but have never worn 6 months earlier for full price only to then realise you could of waited and got your pennies worth, it can sometimes get slightly annoying. However, it is brilliant for people on a budget, and you can find amazing deals, (although you may have to scavenge through a few rails until you find what you're looking for). This morning me and mother faced our fears and hit the shops! Here are a few things I would like to show you, that you can also buy yourselves.

Disclaimer: Links may not go direct to clothing items as most were purchased as sale items and may only be online for a certain amount of time. Prices may also change as sites have further reductions.

This fabulous piece caught my eye when I saw a girl sporting it, I instantly had to own it, and on the plus side it was £98 reduced to £50 from Topshop. I have paired it with a detachable fur collar purchased from H&M for added effect and warmth. (It is not currently on the website, sorry for any inconvenience).

I had previously spotted these shorts a few seasons ago in one of my all time favourite magazine's but I couldn't get them in any of the River Island store's I visited. I finally found them a good few months later and here they are! (*applause*). Although they are not for everyone, I could definitely see myself styling them up with a bikini and hitting the beach in the summertime. (Buy them here).

If you know me you know I'm all for sequins and glitter, especially on a pair of high-waisted shorts like these. They were bought online from Topshop, they were £50 reduced to £25 which is incredible! (Buy them here).

I love this sequin peplum top from Lipsy London! It looks amazing with disco pants or any high waisted trouser/leggings in general. It was £40 down to £20 which is amazing. (Buy it here).

This fuchsia T-Shirt will never seize to wow me! I love it so much. This is from a brand named 'Candy Kittens' (if you couldn't tell) that most definitely deserves more publicity. The brand was founded by Made In Chelsea's Jamie Laing. This was £24, it wasn't in the sale however I felt I needed to show you it as it is so gorgeous. It certainly adds a pinch of glamour to those lazy days where you just lounge around the house. (Buy it here).

Every time I walk into Topshop this floral cami top screams 'buy me' and as you can probably tell, I eventually gave up avoiding it and just bought it. I absolutely love the crochet detail this top has to offer, it looks gorgeous with even just a pair of jeans and Chelsea boots. (Buy it here).

Last but not least, and perhaps my favourite purchase is this jersey pencil skirt from Primark. Yes, Primark of all places. If you look past the huge jumble sale and the poor quality, occasionally you can
find items just like this one. It is exactly what I wanted, an inexpensive, casual pencil skirt that was simple and classy and that is precisely what I came out with. I am not expecting much from the
durability and I wont be surprised if I find an incidental pull in the middle of the flimsy fabric, but I may get a fair few wears out of it before it completely falls apart. (Primark do not have a website therefore you will have to go into a Primark store to buy this, sorry for any inconvenience). 

Wow, what a mammoth post that turned out to be. For those of you still reading I hope you have enjoyed it and found it helpful. 

What have you bought to kick-start your 2013 fashion venture? Has there ever been an item you bought full price to then realise it was in the sale a few months later?

Have a great day!
