Recent Purchases and a (Lazy) Outfit

Gosh, it's been nearly a week since my last post. I hate when that happens! Oh well. Anyway, even though I've been trying my hardest not to spend any money, I've still been buying things sporadically. So, these aren't exactly recent purchases, I suppose...but take a look, anyway.


This amazing dress from Twila Jean (here on etsy) arrived, yesterday. I uploaded a twitpic of myself in it but don't have a proper shot, yet, as it's not really the right weather, here, for this dress.


I know I mentioned that I couldn't afford any Heyday pants at present, but I got some money for a bit of work I did and decided it ought to go to good use. So I bought these!

Yesterday, I happened to be near Dangerfield and noticed a couple of things I'd been eyeing for ages were on sale. So, I took the only logical course of action and bought them!

I have a penchant for leopard print...I used to have all sorts of things in it but I mainly have handbags now. This is the latest addition to my collection and was marked down from 35$ to 20$.

This was nearly half price (I wouldn't have paid its original price of 88$) and it seems to be fairly good quality. I'm taking it out for a test drive, tonight. 

I also bought these pants from Mary Deluxe (they're a little tight but I have put on weight due to some medication I was on, but no longer need...hopefully they'll fit after that), which came with a lovely card and some extra goodies - getting that parcel certainly brightened up my day! And I bought this dress a while ago, but haven't been able to wear it, yet - I replaced the buttons but I still need to fix the hem.

As an added bonus to this post, here's an outfit shot of the sort of thing I wear when I'm too lazy to get dressed 'properly':

Lazy Day Outfit

Whenever I just can't be bothered I put on my Freddies and put my hair up in a scarf and I'm set to go! (Oh dear, I just noticed that Freddies now have ladies' shorts!! Eep.)

Love,

  7. Amazing!
    If that's just your "lazy outfit", I wonder what you are able to do when you decide to actually dress up! :-D

  11. Looking fab, even on your "can't be bothered" days! I love dangerfield/revival designs but they are seriously not worth the near $100 they ask for most pieces. That's why I live at the Dangerfield/Revial clearance outlet! I get to pick through the tacky stuff that nobody else wanted - lucky for me I have 'terrible taste' according to modern fashion, so I get the best bits for as low as $5 a pop!

  12. Glad to see I'm not the only one who falls back on utility jeans when I can't be bothered!
    Love the summer dress - it looks a lot better on you than it did on the model!

  13. Great finds.. That dress is so cute I did have an eye on it but sadly no funds it's probably better on you anyway;)

  14. How come it's so tempting to spend when you're trying to save?! Ack! I have that problem all too often... :p The dress you bought from Twila Jean is perfect!!! You look gorgeous! :) Hopefully the weather will warm up soon so you can wear it. ;)

    Every time I see a picture of you sporting your Freddies jeans, I am reminded I really need to get cracking on my jeans project. *sigh* I just love this style of jeans so much!

    Oh, and that leopard bag has me drooling! I adore leopard print things (I had a pair of faux ponyhair leopard print flats years ago and wore them to the point of holes in the soles! ;); and the bag is pretty much 100% perfect, imho!
