Do I win a prize for the fantastic title I have given this post?!
A few weeks ago I shared with you my pick of the last of the January sales, and well… a couple of things may have fallen into my basket. As well as starting an infatuation with The Whitepepper, I also snapped up this camera shaped bag from Accessorize, which I’ve fallen head over heels in love with. When it arrived I took it on an outing around… erm, my garden, and roped Tom in to take some snaps of me smiling awkwardly.
This 90s polyester monstrosity is my current favourite dress, partly due to its eye-wateringly bright colour, its Clueless-esque pattern and weird texture of the material, but also the wonderful warming nature of polyester on a particularly cold day. It even has shoulder pads, for crying out loud! The best part about it, though, is that I snapped it up for a mere £6 in one of Beyond Retro’s amazing sales which they do regularly, and which now have contributed to about half of my current wardrobe!
It has to be said that this bag is just a little impractical, as is documented on their reviews. The clasp is hidden behind the ‘lens’ so the whole top part has to swing open, which can make putting things in there a little tricky. But when you’re rocking a massive fake camera round your neck, I personally don’t think that matters though!
The Monki Bella Eye shoes (aka, ‘David Blaine shoes‘) are also a new wardrobe favourite of mine, as is my beautiful Shore Projects watch, both of which were on my wishlist for a while before I finally committed to buying them. The watch I wear pretty much every single day, and it gets loads of compliments – it’s one of those simple styles which goes with everything.
Starting a wishlist was supposed to be a way of me stopping buying so many things on a whim, but with so many awesome bargains in the sales this year, I don’t mind letting this resolution slip just a little ;).
