new purchases !



It's safe to say I am running out of my hard earned money faster than I thought.
It is sales week where you can see  "SALDI" signs hanging in EVERY store window.
Who can resist?
I've spent more hours in Zara sifting in picked through piles, but I've come up with some fun items.
One being this beaded white top. I actually picked it up just to try on over a skirt and decided I liked it more than the actual skirt I was trying on. 
The other purchase is this amazing red and white button down from United Colors of Benetton.
I wore it the other day with the bandage mini- buttoned up, sleeves rolled, and tucked in.
It felt so effortless and chic. 
Much more to come soon!

I know exactly what you mean! It is so hard to resist sales! I currently work three jobs that I love to support my bad habit!

Superb purchases, and a lovely set of photos!

And not that it's something new, but I am such a Zara addict. I visit the store once a week, and that alone always lifts my spirit even if I don't buy anything (which happens once in a blue moon only *lol*). Ahh, sales are such a good and bad thing:)

LOVE THE SHOOOES.

really. they're adorable!

Reggggg said...

you have that problem too?
yeahh money can be sneaky sneaky.
I try to keep it locked up in my wallet, but it tends to escape every time i pass by an appealing store.
Lucky for me, there are thrift stores close by, so I can find interesting but cheap stuff.
