With My Mask Off

song of the day - Feelin' Myself by Nicki Minaj
Last Wednesday I went to the Trafford Centre for a bit of retail therapy. Surprisingly I only bought three things in the sales (for myself), which is a mighty feat. I might be doing a bit of local sales shopping next week, but we'll just ignore that.
One of the main reasons for going out was to buy a pair of black trousers for work. My current faves are getting a little ragged around the edges, so off I went. It took me a few shops, but then I found these in Forever 21. I didn't actually realise these were in the sale until I got to the till, so that was a nice surprise. On a side note, the changing room doors at F21 start very high up, it was a little odd because I'm so used to full doors/curtains. They were £9.99 down from £17.50-ish (I can't find the tags!).
My last stop of the day was Zara, where I found this gorgeous handbag. I don't own a lot of bags, mostly because it's a lot of faff to take all of my bits out of one bag and put them in another every day. This will be a replacement for my current everyday handbag. It was £25.99 down from £39.99.
Finally, on my way to the till, I saw this stunning jumper. It was so soft and such a lovely colour that I just couldn't stop myself. For 2015 I'm trying to branch out into different colours, but I always seem to be drawn to reds and greens (and black). Originally this jumper was £45.99, which I have to say was worth it but not a price I'd pay. Thankfully it went down to £19.99. It was a blooming' good steal if you ask me.

Did you find anything nice in the sales? Or have you bought anything from the new collections recently?

p.s. I wasn't sure how I wanted to photograph the items that I bought, so I took a bit of inspiration from Sarah's haul photographs, let me know what you think!
