out of control

Wednesday, 8 August 2012

heyyy so remember how i went shopping last week and the lovely shop assistant gave me all my stuff for free* in return for signing up for their amazing store card? yeah? well, i also got a £5 voucher for signing up, and yesterday me card arrived! inside the welcome pack was a 20% off voucher! so many vouchers! naturally, not to be used in conjunction with each other, but meh. free discounts! you guys know how much i love freebies. so, after work i headed to new look because there was a bag i wanted (this one!) to try on. it's too big, sadly. i find that in the city i love a cross body bag; they're easier to throw on and board a crammed train than something i have to remember to keep an eye on. i might have a change of heart because it's soooo pretty, but until then, it's not meant to be. next, i looked through what is left of their sale shoes, because i saw a gorgeous pair of platform wedges (WHO AM I!?) on a girl walking to walk through leicester square this morning, that i was sure i had seen in new look. no luck again (i will hunt them down. they will be mine). on the way out though, the sale section... it beckoned....
£10 from £29.99
daisies and blue
blue?!
£14 from £29.99
hard to see but pretty oriental fans and blossoms
mint + pinks - looks great with my fading pink tips!
£15 from £24.99
peter pan collar and gorgeous bright floral print
so me!
wellllllll.... yeah. there was also a pair of aqua flatform wedges and floral tee for another £8 total, so. out of control. ANYWAY. knock a fiver off with the voucher, and i woulda been a happy girl except.. when i got to the counter (no helpful assistant this time) there was an issue. the swedish lad slooooowly folding + scanning my stuff couldn't figure the system out, so he yelled (loudly) for someone else. they read and read the back of the voucher to see if i could use it on sale products (of course you can't), and then yelled out at yet another person to help/waste my time some more. so, no. couldn't use the voucher and, yes; i spent another £47 on dresses this next picture will indicate I do not need:
the state of my wardrobe
oh well. that's what credit cards are for boyfriend tells me. on a happier (what's happier than new clothes you ask?), my latest ebay purchased arrived today, and i cannot wait to wear it tomorrow. soooo yum!
la la la la, lola
happy days!










*i realise it's not really free. but.. free for now.
