What I Wore // Heart Print Dress

Dress - New Look
Wedges - Next
Bracelets - Accessorize/Rock n' Rose 
Bag - Diesel Black Gold

We're all guilty of buying things ruthlessly in the sale, but this bag cost a lot despite being half price, and I still don't use it as often as I probably should. If I could get back all the money for the items I've bought and never worn, I'd probably be able to buy myself a Mulberry outright and be done with all the compromises.
 I bought it when I was 18 years old, and just becoming interested in fashion. I was obsessed with mainly Diesel at the time and bought this bag from an outlet store in Japan for around £300 reduced from £600! In fact I also forked out for a pair of shoes that I've still never worn - 5 whole years later! Oops!
Anyway, I wore this outfit to Wagamamas with Dan where I had something other than the chicken katsu (a rare feat). Be warned, Firecracker is only to be ordered with those who have a high tolerance to hot food!

Are you guilty of this too? What's your most neglected item?

  2. That dress is so cute, and I definitely buy stuff then find in still with the tags on at the back of my wardrobe a year or 2 later, then put it back in declaring that I will wear it 'one day'. This bag is gorgeous though - such an unusual shape!

  4. The bag is really cute lovely and goes with that dress. I have the same problem always buying stuff i think i need then not using it. I dread to think how much money I've actually wasted. At least you have brought the bag back out and good choice too its fab xx

  11. You look so beautiful here Sarah! And if price per wear was something I ardently stuck too, I'd have to sell a lot of my wardrobe... some stuff like you I've only ever worn once (or not at all!) but I just CAN'T BEAR to get rid. For example, I have an amazing leather bustier dress from H&M so it wasn't all that expensive but I've never worn it... it's only suitable for certain occasions and I haven't found my way into one just yet! <3

  13. Love the date outfit, and the bag is lovely- definitely one to get into using, quite aside the price tag.

    I'm actually pretty good about things I buy and wear- I have only one item in my wardrobe that I've never worn, and that's because it only arrived earlier this week and all I've done is work or run for the rest of this week. The only thing I've ever gulped at the price of is a pair of boots (Steve Madden, about £275 a couple of years ago) but have satisfied myself by wearing them every winter since, and although I paid £20 to have the resoled this year, I still think they're worth every penny because with a bit of care on polishing regularly and resoling before any damage sets in, they'll definitely last me many more winters.

  16. This post has made me feel less guilty about the money I just splurged on a Kate Spade bag which was 50% off.. I hope I use it almost everyday to get my moneys worth haha!
