Haul

I've been on a shopping ban for a while now. I had a huge clearout a while back but for some reason my wardrobe is (once again, and a bit too soon) full of clothes and as my current account is also feeling the effects of the recession, I've put myself on a shopping ban. However, I had to lift that ban "just one last time".

To ease the guilt, I tend to come up with reasons/excuses as to why I've bought something. If I see something I really like (see: Primark open toe boots) I have to get it in as many colours as I can-not really an excuse but I bought them in black then saw that they had it in beige and just had to get them. I think this will be the last time I ever buy a pair of shoes from there again, as I had a situation earlier this week where the soles of a pair of Chanel-esque flats I had bought from there ended up "talking" (I think you know what I mean).

The cardigan.... well I'm prepping for winter. I mean, I have faith that our so-called British summer will return one last time before Autumn fully moves in but you've got to be prepared.

The tapered ticking stripe trousers from Topshop are an item I've had my eye on for while, but never got round to purchasing, which was a good thing because I then found them in the sale for almost half the price. My love affair with skinny jeans is dying very quickly (I'm starting to despise that restricted feeling).

I've finally got a baseball jacket! I've wanted one for ages but all the ones I've come across have never been quite right. This one's a slightly too big for me but I love it, and it keeps me incredibly warm. At the moment, I've been wearing it with leggings (I'm council to the core) and white lace up jazz pumps, but I want to see what it will look like with heels.

"What I Wore Today" anybody?

Shopping bans don't work for me, I am weak! LOL ;-) But I must say I have never bought two colors of the same shoe. That would be pretty sweet. BTW I love your blog and all the models you show case
