After having a very lazy day at home yesterday I was up for a quick trip to Bicester Village to get the girls some new sandals. I am not a 'dress' person, I love my jeans and always feel comfortable in them so it takes a good dress to steer me away from them. I bought this lace Topshop one last year online. I am a huge lace fan so when I saw it online I had to give it a go. I bought it towards the end of the Summer so it didn't get much wear but I am planning on changing that this year!
It is so comfy, not tight or a restricting fabric and light for the warmer days. After having one of those chuck anything on days yesterday it was so nice to feel good in a girly dress. Clothes do make a difference to my mood!
So my question to you. The bag - did you notice it? I have been deliberating over it for the last two weeks. I spied it seriously reduced in TK Maxx and bought it to ponder later as I didn't have much time. Now as much as I know I like what I like, I do have a tendency to go 'off on one' as my husband likes to call it and when he saw this, he said it was one of those times! I love the leather, the colours and I am rather partial to a stripe. Oh and it's very well made. But is it nice? I've been looking for a more Summery day bag with a shoulder strap for the pram and thought this was the one. But after purchasing (and returning I hasten to add) a Juicy Couture tracksuit top recently I am questioning my sanity! I had a long standing need for a JC tracksuit in my life, since, well a kid so I thought I had better buy it. Turns out, I had to loose that need in favour of spending my money a little more wisely!
|£233 down to £58.40|
So answers below please - am I loosing my marbles? Is it a bit bonkers or 'cheap' looking as one friend called it? Or quirky and different like I originally thought?!
PS if you are in need of a Summer dress, Topshop have just reduced this shape below. I've ordered the grey so will let you know how it works when it arrives. Link to it is through my 'Bargain Buy' above right.
