Items I WANT but do not need…

Being in town for university on a daily basis is tough. Walking up Buchanan Street everyday, trying to resist every urge to go into every clothing shop and not to buy a single thing is very very difficult not just for me but for any 18 year old student. Recently, I have stopped myself from buying anything, and if you asked any one of my friends they would all say this is very hard task for me.

For this post today I am going to share the items I would love to buy right now! But, unfortunately I have to save my money.

  1. Urban Outfitters –

I am in love with this jacket. But it costs £59, so that is my problem.( link for it, is above) I was walking past the Urban Outfitters shop when I saw it in the window and wanted it straight away. I would say I already do have quite a variety of different jackets but this isn’t like any I’ve had before and would be nice for spring/summer.

2.  Zara

Of course Zara has to be on the list..

The words on the picture says it all really. I really want this two piece outfit from Zara. If I remember correctly the top is £17.99 and the bottoms £25.99. I haven’t tried it on yet but I love the style and the pattern of the clothing. This is part of Zara’s most recent new collection.

3. GUESS – backpack

Don’t really have the money to be spending £45.50 on a bag. But I love this pink camouflage pattern. About a year ago I got a backpack from Accessorize that cost me £50 and I’ve used it once. I like this bag because it is different. It’s a good size and I actually like the style of it.

4. Zoeva Brush kit

This brush kit looks amazingg. I know quite a few people who already have it and they have recommended it to me. I love the rose gold on them and makes the brushes look very professional. However, I think I would feel a bit guilty if I spent over £100 on a make-up brush kit but I really want it. I also don’t think my mum would be too happy either. Hopefully in the next couple of months I’ll be able to get them.

My favourite items in my wardrobe

For this post I thought I would share my favourite clothing items from my wardrobe. I think I really started to get interested in fashion and trying out different styles was about a year ago. I became more aware online on social media of trends and looking at what celebrities wear. Personally, I think social media has a large influence on everyone on what we wear on a day to day basis. We all take advice and I guess in some way look up to others on social media and not always from celebrities. After looking through my wardrobe I would definitely say I have a few favourite pieces in my wardrobe that I would like to share… (not in order, I love them all):

1.  Zara – White Puffer Jacket 

I got this jacket a few months ago luckily in the Zara sale. It was roughly £30 I think, however I could only get it in a size Large. This doesn’t bother me personally as I like big jackets and I am able to wear big jumpers underneath. I love this jacket as I can wear it for nights out aswell because it’s quite fancy rather than other jacket that I will mention below.

2. Zara – Camouflage Jacket

This jacket is honestly amazing, I bought this as I really needed a jacket with a good because going to university when it’s raining and you have to walk up a hill.. you NEED a hood! This item also goes with like every outfit I wear and it very comfy. I unfortunately didn’t get this in the sale and saw it in the sale a few weeks later. It was £50.


This top was a very lucky buy for me. I was inspired by Kylie Jenners post on Instagram of her wearing her GUESS A$AP ROCKY original top:

This is probably one of my favourite pictures of Kylie and I fell in love with her too. So, I went to the GUESS website and went onto the Sale tab at the side of the website, whilst scrolling down I found this top on sale for £14.50. I didn’t even realise until it came it was a A$AP ROCKY Original! I love the high collar and the quality of the t-shirt is amazing.

4. AllSaints – Material Jacket (denim jacket style)

When I was in London in Selfridges I straight away went to the All Saints department in the women’s clothing floor. I was very happy to make this purchase. It was £65 in the sale used to be £98. I had been looking for a jacket that wasn’t too big to carry about for nights out and this was the one for me. The style of the jacket is very pleasing and in a way looks like the All Saints famous denim jacket they sell but only different is that it is material instead.

5. Joggers 

You won’t usually see me wearing jeans and if I am it’s for a night out or I’m just being lazy and can’t be bother to put together a outfit. I love comfy joggers.

  • The first top left image are pink joggies that I found in Tesco. I never shop in Tesco unless it is for food. However, I was in with my mum and fell in love with how comfortable and cosy they are and I love the colour. Even better.. they were only £10.
  • The top right image were from Zara. Of course. I got these in the sale for £9.99 and luckily in my size aswell. These are quite risky as they can get dirty really easily.
  • Bottom left are also from Zara. I would say these are more baggy that any of the others but I love the colour khaki and love the pockets aswell. They were £15 bit more expensive.
  • Last but not least, bottom right. These are from New Look, they aren’t as tight as the rest at the bottom of the joggers but they fit perfectly at the waist. I love the 3 stripe colour on the side and you can put any black, white or red top with it.

I hope you enjoy reading this, and learn a little bit more about my style and what I wear on a daily basis. Please have a look at my Instagram @socialmodaa !!! Like, comment or follow!

My Top 5 Shops!

1. Zara 

Zara is a Spanish clothes shop. It is the flagship brand of the Inditex group. I would say that Zara sells clothing of high quality but yet still very affordable. The style of clothing that is produced by Zara is very up to date. The clothing is also very unique and many other shops copy their style. Whenever I have the chance to go to Zara, I will. Most of my clothes will be from there. Recently I’ve bought a bag, many tops, jackets and more. In the past year I would now say Zara is the shop I would go to if I need anything.

2. Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters is known as an indie shop. However, recently more and more people are buying from here. They offer a range and a different variety of clothes compared to the high street. The prices in store are a bit more expensive than Zara but if you want unique items of clothing like vintage or like quirky pieces then this is the shop for you.

3. Bershka

I was in London when I discovered this store. It’s quite a new store and is more known of in England and in Europe. The store has more of a target market for younger people as its very trendy. It is also owned buy the Spanish brand Inditex. I loved this store when I went in and since being back from London I have bought clothes online from them.

4. Topshop

Mostly everyone shops in Topshop. I was amazed by the store in London (as I mentioned in my last post). However, I don’t really like shopping in Topshop in Glasgow. If I need new jeans then I will always get them from Topshop even though they are pricey, they will last you forever. If you need something for a night out most people shop from there. So, you might have some trouble wearing something different from everyone else.  The quality of there clothes are always amazing. I do own a lot of clothes from Topshop as I can trust them.

5. Stradivarius

Also in London I went into this shop and from the moment I walked in I already really liked it, as it was very different compared to any other shop. It was like Topshop, Urban Outfitters and Zara put together in one. I am annoyed that there isn’t a store in Glasgow but you can order online. Hopefully soon they will move up here as I’m sure they would do well.
