Closet Confidential Tag!

So about a week ago I saw EssieButton on YouTube do the Closet Confidential tag and I thought it would be a really fun blog post to make. It almost reminds me of 'whats in your bag' but a closet version! I was not tagged by EssieButton but I still want to do it anyway so I will and I encourage any of you who would like to do the tag to participate as well. If you do participate in this tag I would love to see it so please comment down below with a link to your post. Now lets get onto the questions...

1. What is the oldest item in your wardrobe/closet?

The two oldest items in my closet are definitely my Aeropostale sweatshirt and my Aeropostale camisoles. Now both of these items of clothing I have probably had since I was 16 and I have held onto them ever since. I love the detailing on the sweatshirt hood with the little flowers and I think it just gives it a great girly touch.

The Aeropostale camisoles are honestly the most comfortable item of clothing I own and I wear one every single day. These are great for layering in the winter time and wearing in the summer months! I do own many of these camisoles in different colours but the most worn is my light grey one. This camisole is actually starting to get holes in the back which is very upsetting because it is definitely my favourite!

2. What is the newest item?

On my most recent trip to Primark I picked up these two dresses. The material is quite thin so these would be perfect for summer but I feel that if you wore leggings with the dress it would be suitable for winter paired with a coat or sweater over the top. The skirt on these dresses is very flowy and looks great on! The great thing about these dresses is that they were only £5 each!

3. What is the most expensive item?

Now the honest answer to this question is my UGG boots, but since I will be using this as an answer to another question I will answer my 2nd most expensive item which is my winter coat. I bought this when I first come to England and it costed around £80-90 which I don't think is too bad considering I have had this for nearly 4 years and its still in great condition! The coat does have a very plunged neckline which does look great on but it does get a little cold so sometimes I will roll up the collar and button a few more buttons to make it more warm.

4. What is the cheapest/most affordable item? (that you wear/use a lot!)

Primark clothing in general are the cheapest and most affordable items that I own. The leggings are one of my favourites and they only cost £3. They are honestly so comfortable and great to wear everyday and look just as good as the higher end leggings. The come in different colours and patterns so there is a lot of variety. I also recently bought some of the Primark camisoles similar to the ones I shown in the question above but they also cost around £2.50 and they are great and I do get a lot of use out of them. They also come in a variety of colours so there is a lot of selection.

5. What was the biggest bargain?

I feel that my UGG Bailey Bow boots were the biggest bargain I have had. I bought these in Women sizes instead of Juniors as they only carried the Navy colour in the Womens brand. I was dead set on the Navy so I decided to order them online. The normal retail for the boots was £160 but I found a great coupon code and received them for around £120 so I received a £40 discount. Not only did I get the £40 discount but they also made a mistake and set me the UGG Sheepskin Care Kit which retails for £20 for free, so all together I received a £60 discount which I think is a great deal! I am also never this lucky as to receive a free item so this made me really ecstatic. I purchased my UGG's from Zutti if any of you are also interested.

Now I would also like to mention that I only own this pair of UGGs and have never tried any others in the past. I was always under the impression that the boots were way over priced and you could get a similar pair in Primark for £5-10. I have tried the Primark versions and they honestly get worn out so you can't wear them after the winter has finished. My ugg boots have lasted the whole winter without any problems and I think that the Bailey Bows are just so much cuter than the originals that I feel it was worth the money for the long term investment.

6. What was the biggest waste of money?!

So last summer I was looking into buying some tights so I went to my local Sports Direct and found a great tight selection. I come out of the store with 2 pairs of black tights and 3 pairs of crazy colours shown below. I have no idea what I was thinking and I never did end up wearing the 3 coloured tights. I still don't know how I can possibly wear these with an outfit so if anyone has any ideas please let me know!

BONUS QUESTION - Show us your three favourite items right now

Sneakers... Converse in particular have been a mighty big obsession of mine ever since I bought my first pair (shoes in the middle). I went on the Converse website and noticed that I could 'design my own shoes' which I was just playing around with. I ended up finishing my creating on the website and fell in love and just had to have them. They did cost a little more than a regular Converse shoe but they do get a lot of wear! The next pair of shoes are my Vans (pictured on the right) which I do find comfortable but not as comfortable as the Converse shoes feel. I love the bright laces on these and I think they look great with a pair of leggings or paired with a dress. The final pair of shoes I bought were the black Converse (pictured on the left) which have sparkles on them. I absolutely love these shoes and I think they are my favourite out of the 3. I think they look great with any outfit and give a nice dazzle compared to a normal black Converse.

My next favourite item that I wear almost everyday or at least every time I leave the house is my Lipsy bag. I bought this bag last year because I needed a larger cross body bag to hold all of my stuff and I came across this one which I fell in love with. It almost has a nautical theme to it and I feel it can be paired with any outfit. It is getting a little worn around the handles but I will definitely be wearing this bag until it breaks completely because I am just that in love with it. 

My third favourite item would probably be the Aeropostale camisoles simply because I wear these everyday without fail. They are just so comfortable and I have so many different colours that I just constantly wear these and it is one of my favourite items. I know it is kind of a boring answer but it is the truth! I love wearing these with track bottoms around the house and it's probably what I wear around 80% of the time.

If any of you would like to do this tag please feel free to do it or leave a comment down below telling me your answers for each question! I would love to hear your answers.


  1. Love how cute that floral dress is and it was on sale!

    1. I love this floral dress too and it does look great on! It's so amazing that it was only £5 and so many more were only £2 such a steal!

  4. What a fun post, I've never thought of this before but I definitely have some old Aeropostale cami's in my wardrobe too! I'm excited to follow Shelby, love your blog!

    1. I love my Aeropostale camis and could not live without them! Mine are actually starting to get very old and some are starting to get holes so I really need to get more when I go back to America and stock up on loads of them!

  5. I love this tag, so much fun! I live in America and am dying over your Lipsy bag. Where do you find those? So stinkin' cute. Also, I would pair the colored tights with neutrals or black and white; maybe a black and white striped dress?

    Love your blog and I'm now following you back on bloglovin'

    1. I think I bought the Lipsy bag online, but I was in the UK at the time so I am not sure if you would be able to find this on the US sites. I can have a look and see if I can find it and if I can I will be sure to let you know! Maybe I can try the coloured tights with the black and white dress I got from Primark that may look good :) Thanks for the suggestion!

    2. The Lipsy bag is called the Lipsy Anya Satchel navy/tan. I have found a few of these on Ebay but maybe you can find them in another store online :).

  6. Those dresses are such a steal! And I really love your lipsy bag =D

  7. I love it!! I really like your blog!
    You’ve got a new follower on Bloglovin! Hope you'll follow me back! ♥


  8. Great post. I will definitely do this tag on my blog, looks like fun x

  9. Ahh, I wish we had Primark in the US! Their clothes are always so cute and affordable. I love that black flower dress; I'd wear it with the bright pink tights. :-)

    1. I know its so sad there isn't one in the US! I am originally from the US so this actually scares me knowing that if/when I do go back there wont be a Primark for me to shop at! Thank you for the suggestion I will definitely try this out and maybe do an outfit of the day if it looks good :)
