A Kind of Retail Therapy

19 February 2008


See, I told you I wasn't going to wear black today. My magenta tights and turquoise belt (a bargainous £1 kid's belt from a charity shop) made their appearance but then had to be hidden under my coat because it was hideously cold this morning. It was so frosty and it snowed a little. I began to regret wearing my KG shoes (which resemble tapshoes-hard to see because the photo is a little small) because I feared I would slip over and embarrass myself. Thankfully, I didn't fall over!
After my lecture, I decided on a little retail therapy with one of my housemates as a reward after working so hard on the dissertation draft. Plus we wanted to buy a friend's birthday present and buy mother's day cards.

Here are a couple of changing room shots. After my post about Tartan and checks I had to try on this checked shirt dress from Urban Outfitters and was £42. It's hard to see in the photo but the colours were blue, green and pink, and the magenta tights really picked out the colours. It was nice but not nice enough for me to splash out. Maybe another day.

The second dress is Peter Jensen for TopShop. I really liked it but it didn't look right on me and I wasn't in love with it but grey and pink go so well together. Just as well really as it was £75!

I don't know what came over me and am rather pleased I didn't need to get any cash out. Even though at TopShop I was seriously tempted by the much cheaper option of some Jade green tights and some pink t-bar flats (which clashed fabulously)I don't know how I managed to refrain myself, but I didn't buy a single thing....However, I am meeting up with some friends on saturday so I may be speaking too soon!
