When ever my sister is home (she currently lives in Dublin) she insists on 'popping' to Bicester Village as it is local to us. My sister is possibly more of a shopaholic than me......! On strict instructions not to over spend - self imposed, I do have a wardrobe full of clothes and there is only 7 days in a week, I naturally had a browse. Prada is one of my favourite stores there, I can always find things I like, from the jewellery to the handbags and wallets, shoes and clothes. I have purchased the odd few clothing items before in the sales - nothing like the prices you would expect, you need to hunt people! And hunt I did last month. They had a mega sale on and this skirt was down to £50, yep, £50 for a Prada lovely.
Now it's not my usual style, I am more of a shorter skirt kinda gal purely as I'm not blessed in the height department and don't like to feel swamped in clothes. However, I really really do want to wear more skirts and dresses - it's an ongoing saga, I just love my jeans and they work for me in my life perfectly. This skirt had pockets - I love a pocket in a skirt, was fully lined and semi worked with what I had on that day. I couldn't leave it behind so it came home with me.
I'm yet to wear it. Something has stopped me, 1. perhaps for fear of a cat or child ruining it, 2. because there hasn't seemed to be a time when I could. This may indicate it was a bit of a mistake however, it's Prada, so I will forgive myself and find a way to incorporate it into my daily life. Watch this space!
Finishing the post with the shoes that I was wearing when I tried said skirt on. I saw them on Alex's blog a while ago and loved them. They have had a marmite response in my household, it stopped me from wearing them for all of a few days but I since haven't got them off my feet. They are from M&S and were reduced to £25 in the sale, leather of course (yes, you know me and my material obsession). I love the bling, I love that they are a more structured sandal and I had no black in the sandal department. I had been hankering after them but they sold out quickly when they went into sale. I was shopping with a client and saw them on the shelf. Ever the professional that I try to be, I hid them behind a few other pairs and prayed they would still be there when I finished. Firm believer of fate and what's meant to be - they were still there!
Hope everyone is enjoying the much longed for sunshine. Posts will be a bit sparse due to the young ones eating up more of me than normal and a few little vacations planned. I have a back log of posts to share with you so they will be coming through in dribs and drabs!
