keep or return: george polka dot playsuit

playsuit: george @ asda (£12)

Shopping outside the box really does come up good occasionally, For those who aren't from the UK, Asda is pretty much one of those massive supermarket stores that sells everything. Its actually owned by Walmart for those Americans who follow. Id totally recommend checking out all the supermarket clothing or even just checking out their websites if you don't live near the larger stores. I'm totally impressed with the stuff from Clothing at Tesco & George at Asda

I'd actually popped into Asda to get the Cat Print Limited Edition Playsuit, But they didn't have any in stock, So while rummaging around waiting for my Mum to finish off the food shop. I saw this awesome polka dot playsuit. It actually reminds me of one of those 1950's swimsuits! I feel like a proper pin up girl in it! This play-suit SO isn't my normal style but it was too cute just to pass up on. I dont remember the last time (if ever!) I wore a halterneck style. It would have been just to perfect for my holiday if I'd have bought it earlier!

What do you guys think? Not my normal style, but I'm sure if I styled it up it would look more me. Would you wear something like this or is it just totally wrong? Let me know your opinions in the comments!

keep or return: Topshop Peter Pan Tunic

keep or return: topshop peter pan tunickeep or return: topshop peter pan tunic
dress: topshop (£28)

Ok guys, another keep or return! Not the normal stylee though, Basically I need so advice on which colour of the dress to keep! Now trust me, I'm in love BIG time with this dress. At the moment anything peter pan collared is instantly put into my basket. I think they are just amazingly cool. Its little seethrough (WHY DO YOU DO THIS SO MUCH TOPSHOP!), so I am going to get a slip to go under the one I choose. In an ideal world I want to keep them both, But my heads telling me "Lily, You only REALLY need one colour"

The nude is absolutely dreamy. I feel so girly and sweet in it. I want to wear a flower in my hair and some polka dot tights or team it with my heart print cardigan and some socks and brouges. Then again the black is tougher and reminds me of the Adams family. I have these awesome puesdo goth fantasies of ways to style it up. Studded cuffs and big chunky boots, Layered up with grungy cardigans, thick tights and my Babooshka headband!

To me they have two very different feels to them, and in all honesty I like them both equally and I need some feedback on which to keep! What do you think? Shall I be naughty and keep them both, or shall I keep one over the other? Or do you totally hate the dress? Let me know in the comments!

PS. Who likes the new Topshop website layout? Personally I hate it. Its so hard to navigate and weird. The other one was much nicer aesthetically as well!

keep or return: Topshop Nate Sandals

keep or return: Topshop Nate Sandals
Sorry I edited the pictures, The pictures didn't come out well, so had to make 'em funky!

The other day I popped into Topshop and bought these Nate Buckle Sandal Wedge. I saw them on the website AGES ago in Black and was like OMGOMGOMG! But I think I was in New Zealand at the time and couldn't get them! I decided to bust out one of my MANY Topshop giftcards I've had lurking since Christmas, I thought the one I used only had a few pounds on, But it had like £38, So I think I paid around £2 in cash for them. They were the last pair in store, and have a little wear on the soles, But the sales assistant informed me that if I wanted to take them back I could easily.

In store I really liked them, The buckles are just too cool and I can imagine wearing them alot now I've got the confidence to get my legs out! I adore the western style detailing and the overall Roman feel to them. I could also see myself wearing them with tights in the autumn/winter! Shortly after I bought some really lovely sandals from New Look, So now Im in two minds about keeping them. I really like them, But do I really need them? They were four times the price of my New Look ones, Which I'm totally keeping!

It took me forever to get a half decent image of the shoes on my feet (Maybe its a sign?). They feel quite awkward to walk in as the wedge isn't high or flat, But I'm sure this is something I can live with!

So what do you think? Should it stay or should it go? Are they just "OK" and not worth the price? Lemme know in the comments!

keep or return: H&M leopard playsuit

playsuit: H&M (£7.99)

I'm gonna stick my hand up and say that I ADORE leopard print. Anything and everything. I own leopard print scarves, coats, tops, dresses, heck my all time favourite shoes (which I always seem to mention but never actually post a picture of!) are leopard print. When I came across this playsuit in H&M I had a mini fangirling freakout. A playsuit... and leopard print! Perfect!

Playsuits are so effortlessly cool and so easy to wear. You don't have to worry about your bum showing or them riding up! Plus you can throw anything over them, and still look pretty darn chic. I have no qualms about the playsuit itself. Its just the print I'm in two minds about! As much as I personally love leopard print, but the connotations of the print are... emo, tacky, slutty... chavvy! My 15 year old self would never have thought twice about it!

So what do you think? Should it stay or should it go? Is it too tacky or totally chic? Lemme know in the comments!

keep or return: primark lilac bow dress

keep or return: primark lilac bow dress

dress: primark (£6)

I went shopping with my Mum yesterday, and we made out monthly pilgrimage to "The Big Primark" (as she calls it!) in Teleford. Who knows what drew me to this lilac polka dot bow dress from Primark, Its something I wouldn't have looked twice at normally. The bow, the colour and the print is something I'd never normally buy. There was just something about it that just caught my eye and I cannot put my finger as to what it is. It was one of those rare items you occasionally find that fits your body perfectly. The fit is just right for my body shape. If they had this dress in every color or pattern I'd totally buy them all in a instant.

For £6 you cant really go wrong can you? I feel like this dress is something that Selina @ Flying Saucer would wear! Her style is totally cute! Sorry my arms look abnormally large, it makes me want to go to the gym, like now!

So, What you guys though about it. So what do you think? Should it stay or should it go?
