BLOGGER BITS HAUL


I haven't done a haul post in quite a while but I had to do one today and show off some of the fabulous blogger bits I've received in the last few days!

I'll provide links to where you can get everything along with all the prices at the bottom of the page 
:)

CHOIES 

I'm starting of with all the bits I got from one of my favourite online stores!


Sammi Jackson - Choies Black Lace Dress

Sammi Jackson - Choies Black Lace Dress

First up is this beautiful lace dress!
I've been seeing this all over Instagram, along with the yellow version (which Choies also sell) so I had to have one! I went for black as I think I may be a little pale for  the yellow one, it would look fab with a tan!

The last lace dress I got from Choies was really small fitting so I decided to play it safe and ordered a size M. This one fits perfectly, I'm a size UK 8-10.


Sammi Jackson - Choies Leopard Print Kimono

Kimono's are wardrobe staples this summer!
 I decided to get this long leopard print one, it comes to just above my knees and I got a size M.


Sammi Jackson - Choies Black Ripped Jeans

I had to get these ripped jeans!
The sizing is very odd though, I looked at the sizing chart and the sizes seemed ridiculously small. I ordered and XL and they were still a little tight! I'm so glad I did look at the size chart first and didn't just order a S or a M like i normally would!
I'm a size UK 8-10, in American Discopants I'm a size S and in Topshop jeans I'm a waist 28 if that helps!

Sammi Jackson - Choies Rihanna Style Black Satin Bralet

This Rihanna style bralet made my day!
I ordered a size M again and it's a little small but due to the elasticated back panel it does stretch. It has a zip up back and adjustable straps so you can adjust it to suit.


Sammi Jackson - Choies Crocodile Sunglasses

Last up from Choies are these fabulous crocodile sunglasses! They look like the ones from the Anna Dello Russo Collection from H&M but are a lot cheaper!

OASAP

From Oasap I got these gold leaf shoes.
They look like the Giuseppe Zanotti ones but are a fraction of the price. They have a two ankle straps and the heels isn't too high making them really comfortable and easy to walk in.

STYLE EDIT

From Style Edit I got one of their beautiful Cara satchel bags!

It's one of their best sellers and comes in 6 other colours - black, khaki, red, purple, pink and white. They also do a floral one so there's one to suit everybody!

I was surprised at how big it was and how much space there was inside! It's no secret that I love big bags, so I was chuffed when I realised I could even fit my iPad in it!
It has an adjustable strap, gold hardware and 3 inside pockets, one with a zip.

Style Edit are a Manchester based company so if you're in the UK, you'll get super fast deliver and of course, no import fees!

MICHAEL KORS SELMA


Sammi Jackson - Michael Kors Tangerine Selma


I've been after an orange Selma like this for ages but they've been out of stock everywhere, so I was so happy when I found this one on Depop!

It has one zippable pocket on the back, with two other pockets for a mobile phone etc. I love the little cord to put your keys on, it makes life so much easier as you don't have to rummage through your bag for ages to find them!

Sammi Jackson - Michael Kors Tangerine Selma

On the opposite side of the bag there are two more pockets so you can keep everything organised.

Okay, now time for a moan. Michael Kors bags may look really sturdy and like they hold their shape, but they don't!
I stood it up in the first pictures but this is what happens when it's empty...


Sammi Jackson - Michael Kors Tangerine Selma

It flops right over! They may not do this when they're new, but this one is second hand so it's been used. I really don't like this, I know they're not exactly expensive bags (this Selma should be £315 new), but you pay enough money for them to hold their shape right?

The same thing happened to my other MK bag, this is what it looked like new...

Sammi Jackson - Michael Kors Tangerine Selma

But after a few uses...

The material softened and it started to lose its shape. It also developed two horrible dents on the corners which I couldn't get rid of, and they just got worse whenever I put it down as it folded into that shape if that makes sense?

Since then I've started hanging it up to store it, and thankfully, the dents have gone now, even when you put it down...

Sammi Jackson - Michael Kors Tangerine Selma

So, one thing I would say is to be careful how you store them, hang them up!

Bags:
Tangerine Selma: Michael Kors - £100.00 on Depop
Saffiano Tote: Michael Kors - £240.00 @ Net-a-porter

Today's look features my amazing new coords from Sammydress! I was planning on wearing this to my friends wedding but ended up buying a new dress for that instead. These coords are great, they look perfect as a wedding outfit but you could also dress them down and wear them in the day too.

I couldn't wait to use my new Candy bag so I used it here with my mint ASOS clutch inside it to put all my things in, that's the great thing about having a clear Candy bag, you can adapt it to go with anything!

My shoes are also from Sammydress and they're the perfect height for me, not too high so they're easy to walk in. 




They fasten up really easily with hooks so you don't have to fiddle around trying to fasten them up, I thought this was a really clever touch!

My latest impulse buy was this Furla Candy bag!
I've been using my red one quite a lot recently...

Sammi Jackson - Furla Candy Bag

 So I decided to head over to their site and see if they had any new ones as I think they're so fun and perfect for summer! 

I've always wanted a clear one but have always thought they were too clear and people can see exactly what you have in your bag (stating the obvious I know!) However, these new ones from their SS collections have a snakeskin like texture to them so they not completely see through! 

The zips go over the edge and down the sides now, I'm not sure whether I like the look of this but it does mate it easier to open I guess. All the other features are the same, you still get a Furla padlock to fasten it up and the plastic is still the same, strong, top quality plastic that has always been used and is also free from hazardous substances so is completely safe - this is why you should never buy fakes!

You also receive a brochure of their latest designs to tempt you with...


I love these sherbet yellow and  pastel blue bags!


The particular design I have comes in 4 colours - clear, pastel yellow, pastel blue or pastel pink and apparently are on sale now! They originally cost £235.00, I only paid £141.50 for mine but now (a week later) there's 50% off so they're only £117.50 to buy - rude haha

Since receiving this bag I've used it everyday! I take it to work and I also took it to town the other day (the doorman still insisted on checking my bag despite being able to see what was in it already haha). Working in a bar and then going to town, a large amount of drinks including sticky shots, cocktails, beer etc were spilled on it but you can wipe it clean so it is very practical ;)

Get yourself over to the Furla e-shop and check out all of their new designs, after all there's 50% off at the moment!
