It was "designer Saturday" at the pop-store in Westfield. I know I'm basically spending my entire summer shopping budget there but I can't resist.
Today's star purchase was a gorgeous (DONATED!!!! by Reiss) snake-print leather Reiss bag from the new S/S 09 collection - ie. not from Topshop, H&M, Zara or any of the (predictable?) high street stores which are trying to emulate "trends" but just end up looking copycat-ish.
I'll take pictures of it soon... it's a gorgeous soft grey colour with a champagne satin lining and I am in LOVE. All these women kept coming up to me when I was in the store and asking me whether I was actually going to buy it. YES I AM MUAHAHAHA! Even when I said yes they were like oh ok.. how much is it? UHHM what part of "Yes I'm buying it" did you not understand?!
I'm actually feeling really uninspired by the high street at the moment and am thinking about weaning myself off the high street in favour of investment purchases combined with good old fashionable support of charity shops (which I always was a fan of anyway). I know this is nothing ground-breaking but it really hit home today when I realised that a lot of my recent purchases have come from Amazon, ebay or charity shops and I feel that it makes them feel like a special buy because you know that there aren't going to be 500 copies of it selling in Topshops/etc around the country. I won't be able to quit the high street completely but I've definitely realised that you don't need to go buy Topshop's summer lookbook outfits/follow trends by the book - having your own take on modern trends (or even going against them completely!) is so much more refreshing. This is why I love reading blogs :) There's so much individuality but everyone looks so stylish!
If you read that random spillage of thoughts the whole way through then well done, haha.

My t-shirt came and I absolutely love it. Perfectly soft and slouchy with a beautiful illustration by talented Danny Roberts of Igor and Andre. I adore how his style fuses so perfectly with fashion, making his drawings one of a kind - he has a bright future ahead of him :)

Still looking for a swap/buyer for the "Shroom" MAC eyeshadow :) - see post below for details!
- TO SELL: I bought it for £9.79 and will sell it for £8
- TO SWAP: (I would prefer this): If you have ANY Mac eyeshadow that you are getting tired of pleeease consider doing a swap with me? I love MAC eyeshadows and will be happy to swap with any colour that isn't getting enough attention in your make up bag :) (providing I don't have it already!). I seriously don't mind if it's used, seeing as mine as in a "used" condition too - Just as long as there aren't serious dips in it, etc.

- ALWAYS BRING FLATS. I do not understand people who do not do this and end up walking barefeet in the streets. Let's be realistic now, by the time 4am rolls around and you are craving a kebab, your feet are going to be hurting pretty badly. I can't stand seeing girls walking on rainy, dirty pavements, it's just disgusting. I mean, think about it - dogs shit on the street then they walk on it. Euchh.
- BRING A BIG BAG. One that can fit your spare pair of flats as well as a cardigan at least. In fact, if I'm being really organised, I take a huge bag with me and pack my clutch/etc inside it. When I get to the club, I put my coat/jumper/flats inside the big bag and check it in. Then I just take my clutch into the club and voila! Saves having to check in multiple items (I hate it when cloakroom attendants insist that a scarf is an extra pound....).
