Mini Haul

I had an absolutely lovely time in London last weekend. I was struck by three things while I was there:

  1. Vintage clothing in London is just amazing. In Dublin, vintage clothing is usually an assortment of horrible 80s junk that you can only wear in an ironic way. And if something is genuinely nice, it's incredibly expensive. In London if you're rummaging at a carboot sale or market, the clothes are actually wearable.
  2. When, oh when will COS open a proper shop in Ireland? I could happily dress in COS-only outfits for the rest of my life. A small concession store is not enough.
  3. Why is it that when you have a bit of money to spend, you can never find anything you want to buy?
I bought a few nice things in London, but I came home with a pretty empty suitcase unfortunately.
Some of my buys:

Cute, simple wooden necklace from Go Go Philip at Westfield

Handmade necklace from Broadway Market, Hackney

Angora mix cardie from Topshop

Gorgeous new goodies <3

I know the feeling, its so frustrating! Then whenever you're broke or on a shopping ban there's always loads of stuff you'd like to by. Murphys law.

Good luck with the hunt for your jeans - I'm sure they'll look amazing on you if you could only find some!!

You should all be in Alabama and we'd be besties, probably! <3 haha

I have that exact same problem - when I'm broke I want EVERYTHING - I always have a running list of stuff I'm pining after. And as soon as I get any money at all suddenly all the stuff I wanted is sold out/is suddenly not as appealing as I thought/disappears without a trace...

I guess it's a good thing in the long run -- not spending money. :P

haha, no, you are the web-guru as far as I am concerned!

and, to answer #3..
I think it's when you have money, you tend to debate more over whether or not you rrreally want the item aka do you rrreally want to spend the money; happens to me all the time >.<
