I went shopping for the BF on Saturday with a $120 giftcard. I got him two shirts and a pair of shorts spending a touch over the gift card. All the sizing was wrong – dar dum 🙁
I also used a $10 voucher to buy two gift cards (paper version) and some note cards at Kikki K, a Scandinavian styled stationary store. I picked up a Mother’s day gift (thanks to an email from a company which prompted me to think ‘That’d be perfect for mum, and look, it’s almost mothers day’). I also replaced my Burt’s Bee’s lip balm that had finished (the other one is AWOL and it’s becoming winter here).
I also bought one dress whilst in the The Gap for the BF. I can’t seem to ‘steal’ the photo, so you’ll have to go look here. Regular readers and friends will be shocked it’s neither a neutral (black/white/grey) nor blue or green!!
And then there were all the things I could have bought…
Lime/blue bag at Marcs at $129. It’s not leather, but I was worried the lime side would mark if it was internal or external, and it is the lime that really drew me to it. I protectively carried it around the store, before returning it to the shelf.
Melissa ballet flats
Since I can recall, I’ve always wanted ‘plastic shoes’ and Melissa is the brand that does them. They join up with all the big designers like Vivenne Westwood to make limited editions too. The above shoe also comes in black (would that be more versatile? But with jeans it doesn’t matter) and a ballet pink, which I’d be nuts to try. I can’t help thinking plastic shoes are perfect for rainy but warm weather.
Teal jumpers at Sportcraft
I just LOVE LOVE LOVE this colour, and I want to buy EVERYTHING in the colour in case it never comes back in fashion.
Lime jumpers at Sportscraft
Ok, so they call this colour acid. It’s like the lime colour that I’m currently experiencing a strong affection for. I bought lime running shorts whilst in Cairns. Oh my, they are brief! And I have lime in cushions at home… But I’m growing more and more in love with lime. I really do want a lime scarf at the very least this season.
All in all, I spent a small fortune, ie most of my weekly ‘allowance’ on odds and sods. The vast majority of the above, I sadly left in store for others.
Thoughts? Is one of these items just too good to let go? What are you window shopping currently and not buying?
