Show Us Your Life: Shopping

Today at Kelly's Korner, we're talking shopping...

I came very late to the shopping party.

As a teen I was a bit of a bum. I really didn't like the way I looked (looking back now I long for size 14 curves!) and hid away in baggy sweaters and the like. I was also on a total budget, and wore some pretty whacked out stuff. What can I say, it was the 90s!

Now I'm a little better, if only because I have to wear fairly cute stuff for work.

I like pencil skirts, cute patterns, cardigans, dresses, leopard print accessories, hand bags, scarves, and statement heels (chunky, not stiletto. My inner clumsy girl still lives!).

I cannot pull off shirts (gaps ahoy!), hats (make me look addled), full length leggings (HORROR!) or anything double-breasted or too dainty. Le sigh.

Some of my favourite brands are...

Boden

Quite pricey, but they have awesome sales. I am lusting after these shoes, this dress, and this coat. Roll on the sales!

Marks and Spencer

Trusted and true. I think most of my outfit right now is from there! Current desires include this dress (perfect for Christmas events!), this cardigan (perfect for hitting the shops and going for coffee) and these boots (I love a flash of pattern in an outfit!).

Next and Wallis are great sometimes too (I especially like Next shoes and Wallis cardigans). I love Anthropologie's whole boho-chic thing, but I'm a little too large and it's a little too expensive to embrace fully! Get lots of inspiration from there though. For teeshirts, it's Threadless all the way!

Looking forward to reading up on some shopping tips!

Happy Friday!

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

About Me

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.
