altrocklife’s wardrobe refresher: Christmas sale haul

As you will have seen from my post last Thursday, I did my fair share of post-Christmas sale shopping in 2014, as I decided that my wardrobe was in dire need of a bit of refreshment.

So, what better way to welcome you back to my blog for the year, than show you my final purchases of 2014?  Here goes!

Three pairs of jeans - one grey acid wash, one black, and one blue acid wash.I realised going into December that none of my old pairs of jeans fit properly any more, and one of the belt loops was coming loose on my pair of blue acid wash jeans.  These are their replacements, and at only £33 for three brand new pairs of jeans, my purse is also happy.  Plus, these new pairs open up a whole new world of outfit-matching: the grey acid wash go well with my new black boots (spoiler alert!), the black skinnies look awesome with my metallic purple Doc Martens, and the blue acid wash look lovely paired with my tan fur-topped boots and matching trenchcoat.

Burgundy patterned wrap dress.

Even though this dress wasn’t on sale, I simply couldn’t resist it.  The silky material is soft and luxurious, and it has a tie waist which will help to define my figure.  Plus, wrap-front dresses look really good on me!  I can’t wait to style this dress for formal occasions, such as my cousin’s wedding next month, and for more casual wear such as my university’s student showcase on Thursday.

Purple and black plaid shirt

Whilst I already have a lot of plaid in my wardrobe, I don’t have many purple pieces, so this shirt was a great compromise: inject more purple whilst satisfying my plaid cravings.  For me, button-up shirts are always a winner.

Denim long-sleeved shirt

I was in dire need of a new denim shirt, and I’m completely in love with this one.  It’s quite baggy on me, which means it’s easy to layer in outfits like this one I wore a few days ago:

Outfit of the day: denim shirt, wave-pattered t-shirt, black skinny jeans and a black Drop Dead beanie

These bad boys are my favourite festive purchase.  Though they have a fairly significant heel, they’re still super comfortable to walk in, and I now finally have boots which match my leather jacket, which makes me extremely happy.  Plus, at just under £20 from New Look, they were a bargain too!

So, what do you think of my Christmas haul?  Did you spot any items in the sales that I missed out on?  Or did you find some incredible bargains?  Let me know in the comments or on Twitter!
