See, look at me being sensible with a pair of khaki skinny cords. I have no trousers anymore, only jeans, and I can't get away with those forever. So I've indulged my fondness for cord trousers and bought these.
Erm, I suppose I technically didn't need this but I love jumpers, I really do. And this has pockets!! Plus I put it on and immediately boinged round in it and I think that any piece of clothing that can provide that level of instant joy is an immediate keeper.
I also bought some other random bits (belts etc) but didn't like them when they turned up. I think I'm coming to the conclusion that belts should never be bought online as the pictures never reflect what they actually look like. So I took them back to the store yesterday and exchanged them for a pair of tights (oh how I love DP tights) and this scarf, but in red rather than brown.
Then from River Island:
I am so pleased with these shoes. Eagle eyed readers may have noticed that I was wearing them back in this post. I first bought them in early December in a moment of madness when I was desperate for some nice grey shoes or boots and couldn't find a pair anywhere. At £75 they were a tad (well, a lot) expensive and being suede, not the most practical choice of footwear. But I love them so that makes it ok. As luck would have it, the weather promptly turned evil and they hadn't been worn out of the house when I discovered that they were down to £35 in the sale. Hurrah! First pair promptly returned for a full refund and a new pair bought in the online sale.
This also fell into my basket when repurchasing the shoes. I am entirely blaming Margaret for this. If I hadn't seen it on her blog and fallen in love with it then I doubt I would have gone hunting through the website for it. It feels so lovely and I adore a dress with sleeves. However I'm still not entirely convinced that I suit high necklines and so am currently deciding whether it would be wiser to just return it for a refund. I might take a quick snap of it and post it on here for opinions when I can be bothered getting dressed.
Then when I was down in London I treated myself to this lovely green bag from H&M. It's probably fair to say that it's more than a little influenced by the Mulberry Alexa but I don't give a toss about designer bags so I really don't care. I like it. It's green. It was under £15. Why buy one that cost £750 instead?
Oh and before I go, thank you all for your lovely comments on the last post. I don't like to bang on about the weightloss too much so have always rather shied away from writing about it but some of you have asked for more info so I'll put something up soon. As for the books, yes I read very fast. I always feel that I'm a bit crap at writing reviews of things so don't tend to talk about books much on here but again, I'll give it a go if you want to read about it!
