Window Shopping

I've mostly been avoiding the stores because I tend to get the 'must have' sensation come over me and I'm working hard at getting rid of debt instead of creating any more - especially with my non existent income situation at the moment.

I did take a walk through a few stores at Gateway Mall (what a horrible horrible tempting shopping experience that was) with more stores than any one person could possibly need offering some really lovely items. 
 
However, I have to say this, if you bought a few items last season, I'm not seeing much different this season.   Peplums, statement necklaces, ballet flats, wedges, checked shirt, soft and flowing items - still all the rage.  Snakeskin and leopard print - you're not going to look like you're a frump if you add nothing new.  But then, its not about us needing - its about the wanting.
 
Visiting the All 4 Women window shopper I spied the following items :
 
I really like these snakeskin platform sling backs and although I have a similar necklace in black, a cream one would not go amiss though.

I noticed a lot of pretty dresses about - reason enough to book a high tea with my sistas just for a reason to wear one ... which would be your choice?  I must admit, unless I hit the Lotto, buying a Valentino dress is just out of my reality - but boy, they are beautiful.  We can dream though - right? Right!  Although these are not dresses I've seen in the stores, I thought I'd just dream a little of what I'd wear to High Tea.

  2. I've been trying to reign in some of my consumerism, so it's nice to hear that things may be staying similar to what I already have.

    Love those feminine high tea choices.
