there's nothing more depressing than when the sun forgets to put his hat on. it's june, and it's still grey. in times like these, i find there's only two ways to deal with the feeling of pure disappointment; a holiday, or some serious retail therapy. being as skint as i am, i opted for the latter, thinking this would be the most bank balance friendly option. on reflection, it might have been safer to go with the £500 holiday to boost my mood, as me and shopping tend to only go one way.. debt.
having said that, i am now feeling tip top and i am prepared for a summer of both rain and shine thanks to my recent splurge. anyway, enough of that. time for clothes.
the first place i visited on my travels was Office. within 5 minutes, I was already £80 down (and i wonder why i'm skint.) but you can't deny, these boots are worth it. they are undoubtedly the comfiest pair of shoes i own. if you are in the market for a new pair of killer butch ankle boots, THESE ARE FOR YOU.
along with several tops, rings, a pair of skinnies and a jumper, i picked up a pair of these Urban Outfitters sunnies while i raided their store from top to bottom. perfect in every way, until they snapped clean in two, 3 days after i bought them. there was me trying to be clever and get a bargain.. the truth is, sometimes you do need to pay a bit more for quality. shame on you urban! (and apologies to the terrified shop assistant whom i demanded gave me my money back).
