Spoiled Rotten


I haven't bought clothes for myself since December 29 so when my mother offered to buy me some new clothes I was pretty excited.  We went to Zara and American Apparel and she let my sister and I pick out some new things.  I wasn't super impressed with the main line at Zara but I wanted pretty much everything in the TRF section.  I really need new sweaters so I grabbed the peach and leopard print ones above.  Since I'm loving the monochrome trend right now I grabbed these cool leggings, tank top, and bodycon skirt.

  I didn't see too much in American Apparel that I wanted but I fell in love with this cardigan.  My mum said it "looks like it's from the 1950s or 1960s" which to me is a good thing.  I thought it was pretty expensive but she said she'd get it for me anyways.  American Apparel clothes last me much longer than other brands so I have to say they're worth their prices.

  I needed some boring essentials so we ended up in Shoppers where she bought me one makeup item that I've promised to review soon, so watch this space.

  And since she reads my blog everyday: thanks mummy for being so generous :)

  1. That is so sweet! And the items you picked out are so unique - I can't wait to so the outfit of the day posts with them! I just love your taste - as I've mentioned I'm totally fashionably challenged so I have to live vicariously through others :)

    1. It's seriously as easy as just picking out whatever you like and trying it on! I only buy into trends if I like them.

    1. My boyfriend says it's cheating but whatever lol. I usually avoid Zara if I'm saving money because I can't go in without buything something.
