I’ve done a fair bit of shopping this month but truthfully, not all of it has been good. I hate it when I order something and then the item that I receive isn’t as I expected. I thought I’d share the bad purchases with you (and then maybe a few of the good ones 🙂 ).The first item on my wish-I-hadn’t-bought list are these Ugg-like boots from Truffle. I was looking for a warm pair of boots to see me through the winter and although these could have fit the bill, the sizing is a bit off and I find them a tad too small. I am hoping I will be able to stretch them out a bit, but I have to admit to being disappointed with this purchase.
I don’t usually hate anything but I have to say, I HATE this dress. It’s from Asos and is a body con black mini-dress with a ribbed texture and button detailing but it is horrible. I actually cut it up after trying it on and now I have a somewhat passable tank top and a rag. The fit was superbly bad, the material was rather uncomfortable and it had no stretch to it and looked so forced. Ugh. At least it was cheap!
The last item I’m not completely happy with is this Asos denim skirt. I like how it looks on and I like the material but it rids up when I wear it and I really hate when skirts do that. So I’m on the fence with this skirt – I think I’ll give it one more try and see if it will prove itself or not. Now on to the good stuff!
My favorite new purchase was this Vila fake leather fake fur detail jacket. I love this jacket. I think it has a great shape and so far I have only worn it once, but I do think that I’ll get a lot of wear out of it.
I love this New Look chocolate bar clutch! As soon as I saw it on the New Look page I knew I had to make it mine (and I am currently waiting for the gingerbread man clutch to be released, I am so in love with him, I can’t wait to buy him to complete my clutch collection). Anyways, back to this lovely chocolate bar, I love how huge it is and it is super cute.
Speaking of clutches, this New Look clutch is another new purchase. I love that it has a pug on it. A surprised pug face, to be exact. And while on the subject of pugs, I also bought a lovely pug tape, pictured below. So cute!
So all-in-all I am really happy with my new buys and even with the not-so-great ones, I just have to be more careful when I’m buying shoes to give it more thought whether I need to size up or not. And definitely I need to pay more attention to materials, like with the dress I hate. Anyways, no more shopping for me as now it’s all about shopping for loved ones and getting ready for the holidays. I hope you enjoyed this post and see you soon.
