I know that I’ve officially become a shopaholic because Dad has started to comment on my shopping habits! He’s never made mention of my ridiculous spending escapades before, as I’ve been a self-made woman for quite some time now (HA!) but I believe his actual quote was “didn’t you shop enough while you were in America?!” All I could do was stare dumbly back at him and say “ummmmmm noooooo?”
This all came about because I was completely GUSHING to Mum about my fabulous new outfit that I bought for only $69! YES, $69!! (Of course, this was before my no-spend September – 8 days to go! Not that I’m desperate to shop or anything :|) I’m talking shirt, skirt, anorak, shoes and a 3 pack of tights. Oh Kmart, you’ve really outdone yourself this time.
I had to explain to Dad that I was actually saving money – as the faux leather skirt was marked down from $20 to $3. It would have been silly not to have bought it.
Ahem, I digree, aaaaanyway I’ve always had a soft spot for anything denim/chambray (in fact after I bought this outfit I also bought a chambray dress – OOTD to come, natch!) I also love wearing contrasting materials and patterns, hence the chambray + faux leather + leopard print = fierce!
To finish off the look I added some bling from Francesca’s and I was ready for my day at the office – shanté away!!
