My shopping travels of the past week…

September 5, 2009

I finally went to Westfield this past weekend with my cousins from Leicester. I met them in Oxford Street’s Topshop, where I saw the sweetest cream, pink and grey dress, which I have no photographic evidence of. What a muppet! We hopped on to the central line after my cousins grabbed a Starbucks to go to the much hyped shopping mecca.

We walked around all the shops and to be honest I wasn’t really impressed. Maybe it is because I spend most of my time on town high streets looking for charity shops. The only shop I really wanted to visit was Kurt Geiger and it didn’t disappoint me at all!

I was looking for a particular pair of shoes that I had seen online. My friend had seen them in store and she said they didn’t look that nice. However, I disagree because this is what they looked like when I tried them on:

They were £140 now down to £99 (still out of my price range). The snake skin print, woven detail on the front and tassels are so cute. Plus, they are grey and white! My cousin bought these sexy shoe boots in navy suede. I ♥ suede shoes.

I spent some time walking around the shops of Croydon and I saw two very nice things. A emerald green skirt from H & M which had no bleeding lining and was £20. I could actually make it myself. Then a moment of genius, I went to Past Times and found a peacock broach, which I have been looking for since forever. I was reluctant to purchase it, because even £16 seems like a lot of money for me these days. I may change may mind though because my mother likes it also.
