There's three things you should be aware of about me, other than I lead a life filled with shame and embarrassment and I proudly declare my love for Poundland:

1) I love shopping.
2) I love my credit cards.
3) I've been on crutches for 9 months and can't pop into town for a quick dose of retail therapy; so  shopping has become both a blessing and a curse during these housebound times.

Very combines the best of all these things; with a fab and extensive selection of all the things I could ever dream of buying. I can add my new treats to my credit account and also have the choice of getting my new purchases sent straight to my door [although I usually opt to have it dropped off via Collect+ to the very shady looking 24/7 corner-shop up the road #ghettoprobs. Ah well, least I always have a piece of metal at hand {in the form of my faithful crutches} to batter any potential wrong'uns.]

Here's a few pieces that have caught my eye over at Very this week.

1. Fiorelli Roxanne Shoulder Bag, £70.00 2. Motel Lace Up Flare Sleeve Swing Dress, £45.00 3. Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Angel Pink, £9.00 3. Eylure Eyelash Wardrobe New York, £13.00  4. Orelia Wishbone Necklace, £10.00 4. Illamasqua Glamore Collection Shattered Star Nail Varnish - Trilliant, £15.00 5. River Island Split Side Knitted Tunic, £35.00

I adore this stuff. Like, I can't cope with how much I need that Motel dress. As an eyelash obsesso, I can't believe I've missed out on knowing these super cute eyelash wardrobes existed before [and £13 is not a bad price for three pairs of Eylure lashes with glue], I adore the shimmery, neutral tone of the Illamasqua Trilliant nail polish and that fab nude Max Factor lippy reminds me a little of Gerard Cosmetics packaging. 

I'll let you in on a little secret; I've been obsessing over that Orelia wishbone necklace for weeks now, before I realised Very stock them. But also, having £10 is a massive obstacle right now. So I may or may not have bought a very similar style for just 67p [including postage] off eBay. I sh*t you not, guys. However, I'll let you know what it looks like when it turns up, as so many times I have played the 'Expectation vs Reality' game when it comes to 'bargains' from Hong Kong, which turned out to be the polar opposite of what they looked like in the photos.


What do you think of my picks and how would you style these pieces? Have you bought anything truly fab from Very recently? Have you had any shocking / funny experiences when buying from these super-cheap sellers in Hong Kong?
