    ^ Like this, but was double breasted. From miss selfridge still. Petite 12, £10.
    A short black, a-line high waisted skirt. 7 pounds down from 20 in H&M.
    A longline black cardi with silver thread shot through it. 12 pounds down from 28.
    2 long white boobtube tops, at 5 pounds each. One of which will get painted into a twister mat as I'm going as the game 'Twister' to a fancy dress party soooon.

    Download and run this http://www.ultrareach.com/
    Then just go to www.hollisterco.com

    The application routes all your traffic through an american server, tricking hollister into thinking you are in america yourself. This makes it load a bit slow.

    Also, you need to pay by credit card, cant pay by debit card.
    But shipping only took 4 days, and we didnt get any import tax.

    a gorgeous black shift dress from zara with some sparkly detailing on one of the shoulders, looks way nicer than it sounds - a bit victoria backham-y. - 12.99

    coast skirt -
    http://www.coast-stores.com/MAYRA-A-...uct/2133290180

    debenhams suit for an assessment day - http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/...28010225487_-1 Looks a million times nicer irl and suits me so much. I was a bit weary about buying a suit that wasn't pricey but this fits like a dream and I feel it will look very, cute (and hopefully make my interviewers remember me in a good way). Kind of undecided on what to wear under, I bought this http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/...28010200887_-1 but not sure. Like I say stuff looks way nicer irl than in the website pics

    good luck!! what I would defs reccommend is start building your work wardrobe now (you're a lawyer right??). I find that had my friend not given me the idea 6 months ago I would be a bit screwed because a work wardrobe take ages to build up and you dont want to have to buy expensive things in a rush
