In my About page I mention that I don’t go shopping often. I also mention that I have a list of items that I need/want and that my aim is to stick to only what is on the list. These are the 2 items I added this month.
I actually wanted black shoes with silver toe caps but I could not find any in my size. Then I had the bright idea of trying on the same shoe but in a different colour to see if it fits so I could order them online. They had NO shoes in my size, at all. (I’m a size 5 if you were wondering, so it should be very easy to find!). Fed up, I left and went a totally different shop and found these red ones and I fell in love with them. But The List said black!! What do I do? I can’t go against The List! I made a quick mental calculation of what I could wear the red ones with, and also if I could wear them with what I wanted to pair the black ones with. So I decided that they passed the test. I also argued that if would give the many outfits I’m about to copy from various blogs and pinterest a unique twist :P.
Another item I had on my list was an oversized clutch. I saw this one online and it was on sale. I went to see if I could find it in store because I find it hard judging sizes online. I discovered that it was actually a tablet cover. I love using it as an oversized clutch. Finally I can fit my purse and my phone in my bag!
