3 Pairs Of Shoes I Absolutely Love

Shoes are probably my favourite item of all time.  Not so long ago I boasted 30 pairs of shoes in my wardrobe.  But, I have downsized since then and kept a ‘capsule wardrobe of shoes’.

It is so hard to just decide on 3 pairs of shoes that I LOVE, but I tried my best.

Cleaning Out My Closet…And my room and my bookshelves.

I’m moving overseas in exactly 41 days.  I haven’t even started cleaning out my room yet.  I have managed to part with some dearly beloved clothes.  Other clothes I should part with (but can’t) are in a plastic bag on-top of my laundry basket.

Perfect Flats For Spring

I have owned these flats for about 3 years now.  I bought them at David Jones in Melbourne.  They are probably one of the best buys ever.  They are Steve Madden flats and are so comfy and suit a lot of clothes in my wardrobe.

Footwear and Stockings OOTD

Today I am just posting about prints and patterns.  I like mixing prints and patterns because it creates eye-catching looks.

To Cuff Or Not To Cuff??? That Is The Question…Or: Cuff Those Jeans!

I really apologise about the totally random, weird title…I just couldn’t help myself.  There’s something so nice about cuffed jeans.  I roll the cuff up on my jeans all the time. It’s probably because I like having cropped style jeans and because they work well with ankle boots.  Cuffing them means they don’t wrinkle so much and they don’t look so long.

Cool Kitty Keds – Taylor Swift Designs

I’ve been wanting a pair of Keds for ages.  They are great shoes for dancing (some of you may know I do Swing Dancing – Lindy Hop and Charleston and now a bit of Balboa).  They are great shoes for weekend trips away or for shopping.  They are really perfect because they are cute and look good with jeans, shorts, skirts, dresses etc.

OOTD And Birthday Party

Yesterday my new dress from Lindybop.co.uk turned up.

It’s the most beautiful dress I have ever owned (actually, one of..I have too many beautiful dresses to choose from).

Shop till you drop – or not.

At the moment I am trying to avoid the temptation of clothes shopping.  It is so easy to buy things that you don’t need – even though I do have a ‘step’ system when I get to the shops to help me decide whether or not I really need that new pair of shoes.

However, sometimes I slip up and buy something I don’t need.

From today I am going to avoid the shops so that I can save money for my OE (overseas experience) next year.

I will only buy something that I really need.  For example, I really need a new pair of jeans.  My favourite jeans have finally worn out.

It is hard trying to avoid online shops too.  Especially since I have a 30% off voucher for an online shop that needs to be used by the 31st of this month.

Luckily I have an abundance of clothes – some of which I have forgotten about- and once I go through them all I’ll know exactly what I have.

Of course I can’t avoid the shops completely.  The other day I met up with a friend at the Takapuna Mall and we looked in some shops, but didn’t get anything because we are both trying to save.  Her for holiday shopping (she only buys clothes overseas when she is on holiday now, because quite often clothes overseas are cheaper than buying in NZ – which is also why I online shop) and me for my OE.

It’s actually really good having that extra bit of money in my account knowing that it is going towards something other than shopping.  It is really easy to spend and not really think about how much you are spending…especially with debit cards.

However, there is one shop I must go to = Smoove.  They have just opened a new, bigger, better shop in Ponsonby that I have to go to.  I don’t know if I’ll buy anything, but it can’t hurt to look, right?

Who else is trying to avoid shopping?

Don’t have a cow! A blog post about the history of cowboy boots in fashion.

In 2005 I had my first brush with the popularity of the Cowboy boot.  I was in the orchestra for the stage show Oklahoma! at the high school I attended.
