Affordable Autumn Fashion with Everything5Pounds

Autumn is my ultimate fave. So are clothes, and bargains, and also chocolate, but that won’t be featured in this post. Soz.

So I came across Everything5Pounds.com, and my little autumn/clothes/bargain-loving brain went into overdrive. I spent a good hour or two adding 50 or 60 pieces to my wishlist, and then trying to resist the urge to buy all of them. I narrowed it down to some key pieces.

Just to let y’all know, I did a big order before working with the brand, and I can safely say I would have paid at LEAST double for every item I received! The products are really amazing quality, and feel sturdier and more well-made than some of my more expensive pieces.

scarf-bag-details

I picked up this bag for work – I needed something durable and structured that would hold all of my bizarre work paraphernalia (life of a drama teacher – currently this bag is holding 100 mini plastic balls, a mini bowling set, 50 copies of the lyrics to ‘Naughty’ from Matilda the Musical and an orange kitkat bar in case I get peckish). This bag is simple enough to pair with anything – and who doesn’t love a bit of crocodile print for detail?!

The bag even has little gold feet at the bottom so you can put it on the floor without having to panic about ruining your new lil baby. Perfect! Find this bag here: Textured Panel Front Shopper Bag.

scarf-ring-details

You know when you have a scarf that looks absolutely BEAUT but is actually a demon itchy creation sent from the depths of Hell to ruin your life? Yeah, buy this scarf instead. It’s seriously SO soft – no neck rashes here. Just me that gets a rash off itchy scarves? Sorry for oversharing.

The Aztec pattern is already promising to take me all the way through Autumn and keep me super cuddly in Winter. Pick one up here – Aztec Panel Scarf Β and be my scarf twin!

dress-with-pockets-scarf

Teeshirt-style dresses are just the ultimate casual dress, aren’t they? I picked up this cross-detail black number (and was a bit pessimistic about sizing; ordered a Large and was pleasantly surprised when, although it was a bit big, it draped nicely and looked deliberately oversized. Score!). The sleeves are long enough to not reveal any accidental “I forgot to shave my armpits because it’s nearly Winter” embarrassment…

You can literally wear this dress however you like – go for a smaller size if you want a tight fit that’ll look absolutely #GirlBoss with a pair of black tights & high heeled ankle boots, or a larger size like mine that’s perfect for running errands or staring out of the window of the bus imagining you’re in an indie film. You can find this teeshirt dress here: Cotton Blend Mini Dress.

bag-boots

I’ve always loved wearing big boots. For someone so little (who used to have little stick legs before she started eating excessive amounts of cheese and then running 5k on the treadmill), I just like how it looks – a little tiny body with some kick-ass boots on the bottom. Perfect.

I picked these bad boys – Black Patent Chunky Sole Boots – and they’re honestly so comfortable. Pair them with thick socks and kick people in the shins to your heart’s content. You better believe I picked up another pair of these in navy blue which haven’t been off my feet in days. Apart from, y’know, when I’m in the bath or something.

pink-coat-paul

Okay, so this Pink Boyfriend CoatΒ the stuff of ACTUAL DREAMS. The colour is so beautiful – more dusky pink than it appears on my photo (shout out to my mum who became quite the proficient camerawoman when I needed outfit photos taken…). I was inspired by Natasha’s blog post at love-laughter-fashion where she showcased this coat (and stalked her social media til I found out where it was from… oops). Head over there and tell her how pretty she is.

Special appearance from my rabbit Paul who decided he wanted to be a model for the day. And left fur all over my coat. Nightmare.

There you go! Have you ever bought anything from Everything5Pounds.com? Will you now you’ve seen how naturally I pose in the clothes?! I kid. Speak soon!

    I love this post, first thing I’ve read in your blog and I’m already obsessed with your style!
    Can I ask what shipping cost and postage quality was like for this site? It might become my new favourite…
    😍

      Aw thank you! Glad you enjoyed! The shipping cost was a little bit higher than normal (I think mine was about Β£6, but I had ordered two pairs of boots, a bag, and a coat as well as a few other items so the box was HUGE) but nothing too expensive or I wouldn’t have gone for it! The parcel arrived within about 3 days and it was really well packaged! Hope you find something gorgeous on the site! x
