Shopping makes the world go round

...or not. I'm not trying to get into a debate here! I just thought I'd show you my latest *sales* finds:

Gray loose shirt dress from Zara



Black peep-toe wood wedges from Zara.
They're exactly like my red ones that I wore all last summer AND they fulfill my resolution on wearing more wedges and medium height heels.


Long green wool cardigan.
I bought that mostly because I love the color green, but also because I like my name on the tag, and it's not Monica.


Jiggly metal bracelets
and Tree of Life pendant from Pull and Bear. Reaaally cheap.


But among all these gains, there was also a loss. The lining of my favorite black leather INCI boots got torn one morning as I was trying to put them on, so now my foot just won't go in all the way in. I will try and figure out if there's some way to repair them, but with the damage being inside the boot, I find it highly unlikely.

Oh well, nothing lasts forever, as Axl sang...

Ahhh Zara and Pull&Bear are some of my FAVORITE stores! =)) I saw so many wonderful things in Zara the other day but they were all exceedingly expensive. How much do Zara items normally cost? I wonder if it's a lot cheaper in Europe... Did your heels cost a lot?

Those peep toe heels are really darling though. =) And I love that necklace from P&B. Very nice buys! Haha I thought i was the only one who felt that shopping made the world go round! ;p

Antoinette said...

The tree pendant is beautiful and I had a similar shirtdress in mind to the one you bought! Great shopping day for you!

yasemin said...

Hey I'm so happy that you got the necklace but also surprised because I thought that I bought them from claire's, now I see that I'm wrong..it was from pull and bear.
Also I really liked your gray dress.Nice purchases!

Χαχα, ξέρεις V, μπορεί να ακουστεί περίεργο, αλλά ακόμα δεν τα θεωρώ *πολλά* όλα αυτά που έχω αγοράσει μετά τις μπότες... Δηλαδή μια φούστα, ένα πουκάμισο, μια πουκαμίσα, μια ζακέτα, ένα ζευγάρι παπούτσια, βραχιόλια και δυο κολιέ.
Αν σου έδειχνα την λίστα με όλα αυτά που είχα αγοράσει στις περσινές χειμωνιάτικες εκπτώσεις θα καταλάβαινες...
Κάνω προόδους, ΑΛΗΘΕΙΑ!

chichipiru said...

τέλεια ΟΛΑ! μήπως να δοκιμάσεις παραμάνες χρωματιστές για τις μποτούλες σου...; έτσι για πιο...viviene westwood look! ;) δε φαίνεται από τη φωτό βέβαια που πληγώθηκαν... μια πρόταση κάνω...:)

Sal said...

That green cardi is going to be GORGEOUS on you. Hope you can find a way to mend your lovely boots!

stella said...

it's a great feeling finding things you like, in your size, on sale!
the boots can be possibly mended at a traditional "tsagkari"! pardon my greek :D

Miss Urbanita said...

Love your shirt-dress! Kisses ;)

Marta said...

But could you please show us those pieces on you?

lopi said...

Sorry Marta, I know I should, but these days have been a bit hard on me. I'm still working on my final thesis and I haven't had the time for an actual outfit shooting.
I hope I can manage it really soon, though!

Η ζακέτα έχει υπέροχο χρώμα,τα αξεσουάρ απ'το pull&bear πολύ όμορφα ειδικά το "δέντρο της ζωής"!Όσο για το γκρι φόρεμα,απλώς δε θα σχολιάσω γιατί έχω μια ντουλάπα γεμάτη με παρόμοια κ προσπαθώ να απεξαρτηθώ-εντάξει είναι τέλειο όμως,απλά απαραίτητο :)
Α,νομίζω κατάλαβα τι έπαθαν οι μπότες σου,το είχαν πάθει κ οι δικές μου πέρυσι..τις έστειλα να μου τις φτιάξουν,αλλά δυστυχώς ή δε γινόταν ή κόστιζε πολύ ακριβά!Ελπίζω οι δικές σου να μπορούν να διορθωθούν..
