Recent Bargain Wardrobe Purchases

I usually just write about makeup but today I thought I'd share my recent clothing purchases as I think they're nice and summery, despite our English summer seeming very reluctant to appear any time soon!

First up is this lovely tie-dye green print shirt dress from TK Maxx. I'm a bit of a bargain hunter, and have a keen eye for pretty things that come cheap, and this was no exception at £12.99.

It's perfect for the summer, (when it finally arrives) to wear with bare legs, sandals and a denim jacket.

Unfortunately the photographs don't really do it justice as the greens are a bit brighter to the human eye.

Bought it at TK Maxx but designed by 'Band of Gypsies'

Next is a top I loved as soon as I laid eyes on it. I absolutely love elephants and think most things emblazoned with elephant prints are gorgeous. 
Not only do I love the print of this New Look top, I love the boxy, oversized shape of it too. It's quite casual, but could be dressed up slightly with black skinny jeans and a big gold statement necklace. This is another bargain at £12.99, and was actually one of my Easter presents from my Mam.
You can buy this top here!

Yet another bargain buy is this beautiful red satin camisole from Miss Selfridge. Originally £28.00, it's safe to say I did well getting this for only £7.00
I love the double strap detailing and the cut-out detailing at the front, it makes the top look a lot more expensive than it was!
I'm really into cami tops at the minute, they go really nicely with denim shorts and can easily be dressed up or down. 
I always buy them in a size bigger so that they hang a bit lower at the front and at the arms. I don't know why, but I find that cami's look better slightly better bigger than fitted. 

And last but by no means least is this super-summery dress by Izabel London.
I hadn't heard of this brand before until I saw the collection in an outfit store. They have some gorgeous clothes, especially dresses, at really affordable prices.
My eye was caught by the colour and lattice-detail of this dress. I thought it was perfect for summer and could even be worn at festivals with bare legs and wellies. I'm going to Bilbao Live festival in Spain in July and this is definately going to be going in my bag!
The turquoisey colour would look fantastic with a tan and brown accessories such as a fringed leather bag.

Dress £22.00

Does anyone have any bargain summer purchases?
