They're an absolute steal at only £9, range from sizes 2-9 and come in a fabtastic 8 colours (including yellow, blue and green to name a few). They're also available in wedge and court heel versions. What more could a girl ask for (except one in every colour)?

What better to go with some new shoes that a wardrobe staple: jeans! A girl can never have too many pairs of jeans (especially when they fit like a glove) and these babies fit the bill to a T. Made by Cheap Monday, these tight grey skinny jeans have a fantastic fit, come in a wide range of sizes and are only £40. They also make skinny jeans in various other colours (available from Urban Outfitters as well as a host of other online stores)

Staying with dresses, is this Heaven & Earth leopard empire line dress with a frilled bib and long blouson sleeves from ASOS ( Its a show shopper in itself and needs nothing more than a smile to get heads turning!
