Paper Hearts mustard yellow lattice back dress- $40AUD
I wore this on the weekend for a shoot, which was also coincidentally my boyfriend and I's two-year anniversary. I'll be uploading the pictures soon!
Ebay rose jumper- $32AUD
There were so many pink loose threads dropping off as I took it out of its plastic packaging, creating a trail from my bedroom to the hallway outside where I took these photos. As these are a knock-off of the American Apparel rose jumpers, I wonder if the genuine thing actually leaves such a mess behind. I don't want to be like a cat or dog that leaves fur on furniture and people's bodies everywhere I go!
Glassons floral dress $60AUD
Honestly, is there any scope at all for describing this dress as "red"? I tried this on in one store and fell in love with it but they didn't have my size, so I trekked over to another location, and tried to confirm in the morning with them. It took a while for the girl to find it since I had insisted it was a "red floral dress" but after giving her a variety of other descriptors including the item code, she said "ohh you mean the pink one in the window." I was adamant it was red! The first store's lighting may have been a bit dark, but surely you can't go wrong calling it a deep pink/red. She however said "no, there is no pink at all." Oh well, I got what I wanted in a size very few stores had left, and it's a gorgeous little dress regardless of what colour anyone says it is! :3
Ebay crochet shorts- $30
Without being stretched out a little by my hanger, the waist is tiny. When there is zero stretch to it, it looks like a little kid's pair of shorts. I can manage to squeeze into them, but mind you that's only when the elastic's being stretched to its absolute maximum. Pack on a little Christmas weight (which I'm anticipating) and I'd be worried that these will burst.
from Adambeauty.com- Kate My Colour pencil in brown (Br-2)- $5 each
Adambeauty.com is great for making small purchases because the shipping rate is already included in the product (which is already at a very competitive price anyway), and only an extra $2 for EMS or registered post. Total price was therefore $12.
What I actually purchased was a refill, where I had already bought a holder and a refill separately back in April. The holder is $7HKD, which is only less than $1 USD or AUD so it's no biggie. When that refill was up, I bought two more and it was too easy to plug it in the holder to use again.
I only use a pencil liner for the bottom of my eyes so it is actually pretty quick that I've used one up in only 3 months. The eye pencil already looks tiny in its holder- but the product is not even half of it! It only makes up the clear plastic part at the top. The size is just so cute though >_< Damn Asian beauty manufacturers always know how to get me with their adorable packaging.
Lovisa spiked necklace, $9 (reduced from $20)
Impulse buy, I think. A fleeting desire to incorporate edgier styles into my wardrobe!
I'm not an avid sunglasses brands guru so I've no idea what label this style has knocked off, but all I was looking for were sunglasses that didn't slide off my nose and weren't so oversized as to eat up my face. I had such a difficult time choosing between this in the purple tint and the honey tint- but in the end I settled for purple as it matches my skin tone and hair colour more!
from Mexy Shop, I got both items for ~$20
I did a review for this Taiwan-based Asian fashion online store here!
Urban Outfitters, coral/red jeans $51.65 incl shipping
I actually wanted to return these, but that would result in me wasting more than $27- a little over $17 for shipping from Aus to the US, + the $10 I spent on shipping from UO to me in the first place. I just don't think it's a very versatile piece, but on the bright side:
- these are extremely comfortable! The material is very soft, like jeggings but thicker.
- the price isn't too bad- a lot of jeans around the $50 mark are pretty shoddy quality- I find that often the material is really hard and uncomfortable.
- everyone else likes them even if I don't. I've always had the tendency to find it hard to accept positive feedback, but perhaps over time I'll be swayed.
Due to the excessive spending (by my standards) lately I think I'll give it a break for a while, and focus on selling my stuff again. I will be moving out at the end of this year/early next year to an apartment, so I'd probably be leaving a lot of clothes behind anyway. For my older/outdated clothes I'll probably just shove them all in a huge bag and donate them to one of those charity bins. Super uber keen to get rid of everything!
