video: not a haul #1




Last week I filmed a haul video on a ton of things that I picked up that week. I went a bit crazy as I haven't really bought anything new in months due to having minimal disposable income. When I shop I'm the kind of person who buys and then thinks later, I find it much easier to buy lots of stuff and then take it home and try on and think about things rationally before deciding if Im going to keep things or not! Sometimes I keep things right up until the last few days of 28 days returns before taking it back, Generally though I have a two week rule, if I buy something and don't wear it within two weeks Im not likely to wear it in the future it and it has to go back! Anyway like I said, I tend to buy so much and then keep one or two items out of the "haul"! Yeah, so I hope you enjoy me in video form, and I'm sure you will see some of the items (if not all, I really want to keep everything! Darn-it!) in outfit posts over the next few weeks!

Watch on Youtube for links and everything you might possible want to know about the video will be in the bottom bar! If you have any comments feel free to leave them on here or on the video itself! I'd love to know what you would keep! Remember to subscribe if you liked it (: Thanks!

  2. Love the video! I think his blog's name comes from the Magritte painting "Ceci n'est pas une pipe". Love the "not a haul" rendition!

  6. That's a good rule, the two week rule, but sometimes I buy things for the next season so I'm unable to wear it for a while. But I think your purchases are great especially the hat. Topshop seems to be overly expensive even though they have nice things. I don't know maybe it's just me.

  11. I'm a big fan of the LWD so the white Topshop dress with the pearl collar is my favourite. I also love the River Island Army jacket and the New Look cardigan was a bargain! I really like the grungy River Island dress with the see-through back. You could wear it with a tight stretch cotton dress underneath in black, a bright colour or even a metallic for a flash of something to break up the black x

  12. I love the River Island jacket, New Look scarf/shawl and everything from Topshop! Personally I think you should keep it all ;) This video has seriously made me want to go shopping but I've just bought a pug puppy so I have nooooo money! You're getting loads more confident in your videos and I'm loving them all, really glad you decided to start doing them more!

  13. LOVE the Army jacket and the white topshop dress and of course the rose gold cross chain! You bought so much nice stuff! I know exactly how you feel - fitting rooms can be a pain in the ass! I think I'm getting a little addicted to online shopping instead! =)

  18. i shop like that too, it's just so much easier to try things on at home with the rest of your wardrobe before deciding whether to keep them!

  19. You shop like my mum, buy now decide later. I love some of the things, especially the scarf/shawl and the dip hem dresses x

  20. hi lilly! loved the post..
    just one question, what size did you end up buying the RI jacket in? i wanted to order it as we don't have a RI here and we're about the same size. xx

  21. I love the Boutique dress soo much, it's an investment since it's silk and it can be worn dressed up or dressed down! The price per wear is too good to take back ;) Definately should keep that :)

  22. I just bought the denim dress because it looks lovely and so easy to wear. I even bought a topshop knit cardigan to go over it...so expensive and so non-mashinewashable..argghh topshop!

  23. The RI jacket looks gorgeous, probably better than the Topshop version in my opinion. We'll see though! The dress your wearing is gorgeous too, I really like it xxx
