The Purchase Report | August

Missguided AU is slowly becoming my go-to online store purely because it’s affordable. The items you’re getting are very well priced for their good quality craftsmanship. They offer the same things in all their international stores which is a bonus for me since I like American fashion so much. It’s almost like they are a better version of Forever21 for me.

Capped Sleeve Ribbed Cropped Tee $16.00

This lightweight ribbed jersey essential in black is a must have for your summer wardrobe. Versatile is key with this piece, its cropped style and capped sleeves are super flattering for most shapes and will be a core ingredient for a day to eve look. Team with a jersey tube skirt and some heels to complete a night time casual look. 

Capped Sleeve Basic Crop Top Burgundy $10.00

In a rich burgundy colour, we love our Missguided basics. Such a versatile piece, you can wear casual with shorts and jeans or dress it up with a midi skirt and a pair of heels. Whatever you decide make sure to invest in our basic cropped jersey Tee.  

These two tops are super cute and so worth it. I paid $4.00 shipping for both items. I’m more likely to wear the black top because it’s a little bit longer in the body. I don’t like wearing crops often because I don’t like how they sit on my hips. I’m really short so they sit a little lower than they do on tall girls. I even like the material better on the black top too, not sure how obvious it is, but the material is ribbed.

 Jessica Super High Waisted Skinny Jean Blue $20.00

Style your cobalt blue jeans with a long cream shirt and black boots for a clean minimal look. This must have style comes in 4 rad colours so buy in multiples for extra mileage. Our super soft high waisted skinny's are a real wardrobe staple.
I absolutely love these jeans! they're a little too tall in the crotch for me but that's purely because i'm super short haha. 


Princess Polly Review

Princess Polly is an online store I found through instagram, they’re not cheap but they’re pretty good. I’ve purchased one item from them after following them on instagram for a few months. i'm actually pretty certain that the parcel bag it comes in is the same as another store too. I remember seeing it before. somewhere while opening mail.

I ordered the Voodoo Child Top in Mustard in a size 8. It’s a knitted cotton crop top so it stretches. It fits fine over my bust but it was really tight under my arms on the seams.  So I’ve had to exchange it for the next size up.
I did ask the customer service chat lady if she thought the size would fit me, she was polite and kind but not helpful. She just told me all the models wear a size 8. That was not helpful at all, I’m usually an 8 but I’m not shaped like the models, hardly anyone is shaped like them at all. 

Either way, i'm happy with it. 
I made my order using the Afterpay option, which is pretty much a take home layby. IT deducts money from your credit card each week till you've paid off your item. You have a limit of up to $500. 

This top was only $50, overpriced yes. Forever21 had nearly the same top for less than $15 a few months ago, i didn't know this at the time so i missed out on  it :( 
I've been hunting for a top like this for a few weeks now, so i'm happy that i found the PP one - even though it's super expensive.  Would i shop with them again? that's hard to tell, i don't like how expensive the products are for what they're actually made of. This top is for special occasions and going out otherwise it will wear out something fierce. 
If i saw another item like this that i loved? i might buy it, the Afterpay option makes it so much more convenient.
