Alternate title #1: Shit I bought in New York
Alternate title #2: What my extra 21.4kg’s of baggage was made up of
Alternate title #3: Bloggers are weird
Because I keep being asked I thought I better do some sharing on the stuff that I bought. This doesn’t cover it all, but it’s a start. It was also a chance for me to write about NY again because I am unsure what to blog about anymore. It was also a chance for me to reminisce. I’m feeling a little bluesy today.
I bought a bit at this place. It was my favourite, and my best. Look at that FROCK. I didn’t buy it, but I should of. Oh buyers regret – there was so much I was “going” to get, and didn’t. I wish I had.
This is what my haul looked like at the check out. Mugs (sisters pay no attention to them, they are not for you. OK they are.) See that necklace there? Do you love it as much as I do? I LOVE it. And that frock. And those silk pj pants.
This was the frock. I love it! And those green earrings? Those were from Anthro as well. I know I will be rocking that frock for years to come – I can dress it up, or down. Either way, it’s FAB. Right up there with my favourite purchase.
I got some running shoes and attire from Century 21. These brand spanking Nikes were $44. FORTY FOUR DOLLARS. And the pink neon? HOT. It might just make me hit the pavement. Note to self: go for a run you fat mole.
I got this crisp white shirt from Gap for $50. Every girl needs a crisp white shirt no? It was my nod to Audrey Hepburn. But in a fat, middle aged mother of two kind of way.
BAM! Givenchy earrings. Gold with black enamel and diamantes. Loving. Oneself. Sick. And those brows? I used my new brow pencil today to help combat the blues and it just looked stupid and ugly. How does that happen?
This is my “on trend” necklace from Century 21. It’s gold and it has grey ribbon woven into one section and then a feature ribbon section. It’s mad and I love it.
There’s that Anthro necklace. And those SHORTS. From ABC Carpet and Home. Reduced from $228 to $25. They may be the fanciest thing that I own – made from bamboo and lined with MOFO SILK. I took them to the dry cleaner this morning to be cleaned and I miss them already. Bring on summer – it’s going to be the Summer of the Short.
When Mrs Woog and I were waiting to board our plane to NY in LA we bought some magazines and I spotted Michelle Williams looking AMAZING in Brooklyn with her hot boyfriend Jason Segel. I said to Mrs W that I would thereby channel her and her style for my trip. I need my hair shorter, but the new Wayfarer’s I purchased in Bloomingdale’s made me feel a little more MW like.
I got think Elephant print shirt from Gap on a whim. I didn’t try it on and when I came back to our room and whacked it on I wasn’t sure. But now? I LOVE it. Got those gold havi’s too.
Somehow along the way I decided that I was Liz Hurley because I bought WHITE JEANS. Not just any jeans – but NYDJ (Not your Daughter’s jeans). They are cropped and tight and hot and best of all? A SIZE 8. I love them. I also got that shirt you can see underneath. It’s like a greeny mustard and I have named it Colonel Mustard. It’s chiffony, with gold buttons holding up the sleeves. This outfit is a little Gold Coasty isn’t it? EXACTLY what I was going for.
I got this black t shit from Bloomingdale’s. I was just after a plain black tshirt but Mrs Woog made me get this one saying it would be flattering. It has bat wings and is fitted around the waist and normally I wouldn’t have got this in a million years, but I did, and I love it. Thanks Mrs W!
Michelle Williams right?
I got these little leather loafers which are a little middle aged Bowral seeing as they are Mock Croc AND patent leather but I am also a little bit in love with them. This is them, at the park this morning. They look a little sad don’t they?
There’s more…like my neon orange jeans, and a Gap frock but patience Grasshoppers. They will come.
Today has been a strange day. I’m tired. And cranky. And fat. And everything that seemed so cool to me last week just seems stupid and wankery today. I think I need to go for a run right?
