spontaneous shopping

I am just going to put this out there, if you haven't already figured it out from reading my blog, I love to shop. It isn't just going home with the new purchase, it's also the thrill of the chase. Writing out the list, researching prices, going into the shops, having a coffee to contemplate your options then going in for the kill. The last wallet I bought I visited the store no less then six times before I purchased it.

Then sometimes you come across something you just can't resist, or stumble upon a crazy sale and your usual strategy flies out the window. This seems to be happening to me more often lately and this is what I have bought home in my basket.
Ring from Equip

Bag from a stall in China town



The clothes in the last photo are all from Dotti. I sometimes think their clothes are overpriced but at DFO they were having a crazy sale and hardly anything I bought was over $7 so I couldn't really resist. 
My spontaneous shopping is over for now though as I start saving for my trip to the US (less then 5 months!!) and I am worried that my faithful laptop is on the way out, so its time to save, save, save.

  1. I've noticed when I plan it usually doesn't work. I find things that I love that was never on the list.

    I love all your buys. Dotti can be overpriced for what it is but when they have sales the prices are a lot more reasonable. x
