birmingham

Jumper: Topshop; Maxi Dress: Topshop; Bag: iOffer; Sandals: Office
On Thursday I met up with one of my favourite bloggers Claire from thejazzpad.com. We went on a nice shopping trip/lunch around my home city Birmingham. We always have a great time together, & this time was no different. Our day included my first experience of Wagamama, travelling up and down numerous escalators, standing outside Forever 21 praying for it to open now lol and having nice chats and making our selves at home with the friendly sales people of The Pop Store. – The photos make it look like a really horrible day! It was actually a lovely warm day and rained for a few minutes whilst we were indoors.
Spending Ban Update – Just a quick update on how I am getting on with the spending ban. I did mention at the bottom of the post that this shopping trip wasn’t included! But I still did quite well… until I reached The Pop Store. £15 brogues from New Look, £16 watch from Urban Outfitters, some tights and a plain jumper from Primark… so far so good. Then I reached The Pop Store got over excited by all the Wildfox and splurged on a £90 sweater… however, in my defence I got £15 student discount making its around £76. I am not going to apologise & I do not feel bad… but I am taking this as my last and final shop. From now on my whole life (as Big Brother is sadly over RIP) will be dedicated to saving money!!
Have faith in me!

Style of a Fashionista said...

You two looked like you had a fun day.

I saw your last post and totally agree I am not sure sure if this will help but I too have the same problem of not having endless amounts of money I am lucky as I get free clothes from Nicole Farhi perk of working in retail but I sell loads of stuff on ebay and use this money to re-invest in my new season wardrobe so then I do not feel the pinch so much on my everyday out goings xoxo

LMA said...

Oh thank you so much!
Haha, we had prolems with the lyrics, it sounds so weird in the video..
