Happy Valentines Day, from Ali & Mercari

Brighton fashion blogger

I can't believe that Valentines is tomorrow! Valentines can be a crazy time - there's emotions flying all over the place and it can be SO hard to find the perfect gift for your loved one... (or ones!) and then, on top of that, you need to find the perfect outfit.

Whether you want an outfit so good it'll make your man start looking at diamond rings, or one so bad it'll make your ex cry from losing you - there's so much to find on Mercari! I'm both a buyer and a seller on the app and (hand on heart) will never be returning to similar shopping apps... Why? 1. There's no fees!!! 2. Mercari even organise posting for you with a handy print off label. AMAZING.

My Mercari journey started off with the cutest Valentines package filled with personalised Love Hearts, a gorgeous smelling Yankee Candle, a bathbomb and some chocolates (which I may have eaten well before the big day!). This was super cute and really got me in the Valentines mood. This year, I'm spending it with my boyfriend (last year was spent with my mumma) so I wanted to find an outfit that was cute and a little sexy - but not OTT.

Steve Madden boots

The first item that caught my eye was a pair of Steve Madden velvet thigh high boots. I am obsessed with thigh highs and the purple colour screamed romance to me. The RRP was £110 and I bought these for just £30, including postage! I also found a super cute Topshop playsuit to pair them with, which I bought for just £18. However, this is England.. and no matter how romantic your day is, you're going to need a coat. Thankfully, I stumbled across another amazing bargain - a Superdry Aviator jacket. It retailed at £144 and I snagged it for £50!

All of the items came in perfect condition and I love how well they pieced together to make a complete outfit. Make sure you download Mercari here to see what I'm selling (I'm putting most of my Instagram outfits on there!) and use code CTVHRC to get £2 free credit to spend!
