I was fortunate enough to receive some Selfridge's vouchers off my family this year and couldn't resist hitting the Boxing Day sales to get all the best bargains. Waking up at 7.30am after many days of drunken festivities is true dedication to shopping! I picked up some lovely bits and pieces - mainly chunky knit jumpers and jewellery. I spent my vouchers on this oversized striped AA shirt which is something I've had my eye on for a long time now. I saw a similar style on the Zara website but they didn't have any left in stock so thought I'd bite the bullet and buy this one instead. I do think AA items are ridiculously over priced for what they are, but they always seem to produce the exact styles I'm looking for. I think this shirt was priced at £52 which is really expensive for such a simple piece but I know I'll get lots of wear out of it so don't feel too guilty. 

I paired the blouse with my trusty AA disco pants which have become my best friends recently. I used to think they were only suitable for girls with ridiculously long skinny legs but I think they are flattering on most body types. I've also become addicted to Topshop's 'Beguiled' lipstick at the moment which is a dark plum shade with a slight sheen finish. I love colour on the lip and darker shades like these have definitely dominated my style this season.
