Shopping Addictions...

Boots - Costa X, Regular Price $55, purchased on sale for 50% off
Dress - American Apparel Double U-Neck Dress, Retail $35
Sweater - Urban Behaviour, Regular Price $30, purchased on sale for 50% off
Tights - Winners (?)


Steph persuaded to take these photos and create an outfit post. And, due to my lack of contribution to the blog of late, I obliged. Apologies for the bad quality + lack of editting - my Photoshop has sadly gone awry.

So about that shopaholic disease. I KNOW Costa and UB aren't of the greatest quality, but I couldn't resist. And well, my credit card bill paid for my lack of restraint. Basically, my friend at work took her break before me and came back from Urban Behaviour spending $150, to which I vowed to spend far less, a max of $50.

BUT THEN, I went into the store and couldn't resist. How often do you find multiple decent sweaters for less that $20?! And plus, everything fit in with my "winter uniform" (the outfit that I seem to be wearing all winter) - tights, boots, dress, sweater. Needless to say, when the bill came up to just over $110, I was mildly shocked. Unfortunately, the next day Costa X had their 50% off sale. You think I would learn from the day before, but no. I ended up spending both my breaks combined (a half hour, and 15 minutes) waiting in line to get into the store, waiting for a size, and then waiting in line to pay. Don't get me wrong, as cheap (quality) as they are, I love my new boots. I guess this is just the price of working in a mall. I just wish they were a pair of Manolos or something...
