So I went into the city last weekend, and I haven’t been for ages because I'm trying to save up for Bali (which I leave for in a couple of weeks!) and bought a few things...
I went to Valleygirl, which has always been a favourite., they have a wide range of knock offs, and if you see something you like, they’re guaranteed to have some kind’ve version of it. Good place for cheap tops as well, they often have specials for about $14.95. I highly recommend you go here for ‘trend pieces’ stuff that is currently in season and may not last, it’s not pricey and...you don’t need it to last the years.
I bought a pencil skirt that is just like this although it has a paisley-type print on it. Its black as well, like glossy, so its sophisticated but something a little bit different, which means I can wear it in the office, but it’s not just the regular kind of black skirt you see every other corporate woman wear. Anyway! Enough about the skirt, it’s simple and nice for work.
I also bought a strapless dress which is a feat for me in itself, because I really don’t wear dresses! Its a bit too girly for me, and I don’t know, the dresses I do wear are not traditional empire line dresses, or cutesy A-line dresses or vintage numbers. I wear cocktail dresses and only when I have an event to wear it to!
This one I wore with a short sleeves, satin white satin blouse underneath the other day and it looked really good. I like the flare ion this as well, and the belt sits on the natural waist rather than the empire line, which suits me far more.
I also bought an enormous grey knit scarf, because I'm really into huge scarves at the moment! I couldn’t find a picture of it though, sorry. Its really warm as well, I'm pretty pleased with it!
Also, I finally went to SABA, and spent my voucher that I won a few weeks back (you may remember me posting about it, if you want deets, check it out here)
I bought a black trench coat, which is a mix between wool and angora. Something classic and a staple item which will probably last me years, because, we should all know this by now, THAT is what you should be splurging on, not the ‘at-the-moment’ trends. It was the last size 8 and I simply couldn’t walk away!
It looks like this although doesn’t have the grey through it;
I also bought some really nice ankle boots from Temt but I cant find any images even remotely close! So ill get back to you
