I’m taking you guys (window) shopping!

It seems like high street shops are really upping their game. After being super impressed at all the AW collection from the Arcadia blogger event a couple of weeks ago, I received some press images for New Look. I was particularly taken by this gold cardigan…

After work, I headed for New Look and tried on the glitzy number. It’s very gold and very lovely! Unfortunately it stayed in the shop as £50 is a little too much to spend when I know that Christopher Kane for Topshop is due to hit stores on Friday. I actually don’t know whether I will buy anything from Kane as I’m about to become very poor as I start back at uni on Monday. I don’t know how many of you are Birmingham based (probably none at all?) but the Bullring Topshop is stocking the majority of the collection!I also hit Topshop to get my fix of all things floral. I really love this blazer.I like the dress too but I have a pet hate for things that I deem ‘lazy’ clothing. In this case, a jumper with an attached skirt. It is CUTE though so I’m on the fence about this one. I DID however, buy some shiny new shoes. I spent my Topshop gift card from the Aussie Treasure hunt on these purple flats. Hello new shoes. Finally, a quick thank you to the lovely YSL people who sent me the manifesto and tote! I had the hugest smile on my face when the postie handed me the package. I love it and it’s going to be the BEST book bag for uni. If you haven’t checked out the micro site (it went live last Saturday) then go check it out! I thought I would share this with you guys! My best friend ingeniously explained the concept of window shopping to her boyfriend.

Dan “I’ve never understood why girls shop without money”
Chrissy “Well…Why do you watch football games when your team (Sheffield Utd) isn’t playing?”
Dan “Because it’s not quite as good but I still enjoy it…..oh!”

The penny drops, brilliant! It’s so true!
