After a tough week at work, I felt like rewarding myself with a bit of shopping (also known as retail therapy), so I headed down to Chadstone and picked up a few goodies. My official favourite part of Chadstone is the new designer area that flows down towards Target because all my favourite clothing stores are there. Although to be honest, I’ve found myself shifting towards only the stores that have sales on, or brands that are generally cheaper.
Call me crazy (my friends and family certainly do) but paying $300-400AU for a shirt or pants seems excessive to me (bags and shoes are totally different things!) I have nothing against paying those sort of prices in general, but I suppose right now, given my income, priorities and the fact that I can sew, I’d rather put the money towards a new pair of shoes or bag instead.
I’m going to try and and spend more time exploring new brands, both offline and online and get creative. My wardrobe is really quite depressing (hence why I haven’t had any outfit posts yet, but I will soon! Waiting for my new remote control to come in!) So one of my goals for this year is to spice it up a bit more. That reminds me, I really do want to make a post about my fashion goals for the year.
Speaking of new brands, well… this isn’t really new, since I already have a small Coach bag my cousin gave me, though I’ve never been big on the Coach label. But in the spirit of being open to new styles and brands, I had a look through and found what I think will be my new makeup bag (I’ve been using my LV Mini Pochette, which is far too small)
I love the two zip compartments, and the extra pocket on the inside. I think it’s suppose to actually be a clutch as it came with an across the body strap (which just makes it all the more versatile), but I can see this being a great makeup bag. I love having colourful cute accessories in my bag, definitely something I want to colour more off so every time I open my bag I’ll see a rainbow of colours.
