On another forum I used to frequent there was a monthly 'What have you bought?' thread. It was absolutely amazing for help finding new things to buy! I'm in desperate need of inspiration so hoped you'd all think this is a fun idea and hop on in to leave links to your purchases throughout Feb...

Quiet so far for me this year.

Selling a few valuable things on eBay this week so may treat myself to this Coach bag. Can't decide - mahogany or tan?

Fab idea!

So far, I have bought this dress from Top Shop:

These harem pants from Next to be worn with a simple tank top and chunky gold jewellery in summer:

(no idea why they call them Smudge - they are black and midnight blue leopard print)

This necklace is on the way...

Sotired i prefer the tan version of that bag. It's lovely grin

I have bought this to console/congratulate myself for stopping smoking:

WillColbert Mon 03-Feb-14 22:53:53

Great idea.

So far I have bought this phase 8 wrap dress

www.phase-eight.co.uk/pws/ProductDetails.ice?ProductID=202456050&redirect=true

I'm trying to decide whether I can wear it with ankle boots.

ELR Mon 03-Feb-14 22:57:37

A low ankle boot or shoe boot would work

WillColbert Mon 03-Feb-14 23:02:01

Forgot to say that I really like the coach bag too - I'd probably go for tan.

WillColbert Mon 03-Feb-14 23:09:38

Thanks ELR.

A White Stuff shirt grin I know, I know, style crime but listen, it's very fitted, 100% cotton, lovely and soft and the colour really suits me so nerr.

Here it is: www.whitestuff.com/ls-garden-power-shirt-prod406149_sft_btroot/
I got another one last month too in a dark, blueberry colour. (And a lace skirt in the sale but I'm not mentioning that.)

OK I'll go now.

I've come over all 20's. Got this in the Anthropolgie sale.

Also this, which isn't me but I love anyway

DaftSkunk Tue 04-Feb-14 11:46:06

I've just thought this and this.

DaftSkunk Tue 04-Feb-14 11:46:30

ordered

nothing yet, I really need some new clothes, mine are mostly ill fitting due to weight loss, but not quite yet into next size down. I was all set for a big ordering session when the bill came in for DS2's school trip and need £200 by next week. So looks like will be frugal February by default (was also his birthday Friday just gone)

2 pairs of MIH Marrakesh jeans via the Asos sale - violet and standard denim.

Looking for some silver metallic low heeled boots.

On the list: thermal underwear while M&S have their 20% sale, Tshirts for when Boden have a good discount code.

fraggle73 Tue 04-Feb-14 12:59:39

That jewellery for Etsy is lovely. Have you ordered from this company before. Am tempted.

FoxyHarlow123 Tue 04-Feb-14 13:20:12

I bought these trousers for work www.riverisland.com/women/trousers--leggings/slim-trousers/Blue-contrast-trim-cigarette-pants-645778

And this jumper for slobbing. It's more relaxed and softer than it looks in the pic www.riverisland.com/women/knitwear/jumpers/Navy-stripe-V-neck-oversized-jumper-648611

I also bought some £400 shoes but I returned them cos I couldn't stand the guilt!!

Oh and a sports bra.
