I could not believe my luck when a last minute (because I get up so late and am so slow getting ready) dash into town to have a quick shop started with picking up the much coveted Nike Dunk red and white check hi tops!
Not only were they $40 cheaper than when they first caught my eye Shoe Connection are also having a buy one get one half price sale! :D So The Boy got a pretty pair of shoes too and we both saved an extra $40 something each.
These are my first pair of Nikes. :D
This candy necklace is new in the shop. We’ve got a few new things up and a few more coming this week.
I also picked up the new Dan Brown – The Lost Symbol. I haven’t read an actual book in a while, keeping up with the hundreds of blogs I read is enough for me. I don’t care what people say, I like Dan Brown’s writing. It’s easy to get caught up in.
Watched this week: The Mexican; Gilmore Girls Season 7 – Yep, it’s all done. I’m glad to have one more thing crossed off my 101 in 1001 list, but I feel kind of sad that I’ll never know what happened in the rest of their lives. And I feel sad for feeling sad! I also feel sad that the final episode was kinda lame and there was no double wedding or anything.
Best buy: Some new low top chucks. My others are falling apart and are left sitting in the closet. By chance I found a big sale at Rebel Sport and after a quick check of other shoe stores in the area I realised I was getting them half price. :D
On my wishlist: I came across these beauties while killing time in town yesterday. It was love at first sight, I want them pretty badly, but at $240 they’re beyond my self imposed cost limit.
They’re even prettier in real life!
I’m loving: Compliments on my shoes from the local friendly crazies, Plans to leave the house four times in one week (!), discussing and debating religion and the New Zealand prison system with intelligent boys, amazing emails from customers letting me know they love their jewellery, warm ugg boots (and getting them half price), freebie testers from Lush, reading the latest fashion magazines at my leisure in the library, cheap Poon Tang cocktails at Monsoon Poon, Wii Fit as a party game.
Best line: I was on the stepper at the gym for like 30 minutes and there is only so long I can think about Johnny Depp before I spontaneously orgasm it’s just not appropriate to do that at your local YMCA. – Lady Smaggle
T shirts and Sneakers.
There’s no point denying it. No point trying to fit in with the other girls. There’s no reason for me to try to wear high heels, elaborate swishing blouses, or huge cowl neck sweaters.
I can admire stilettos, platforms, and pumps as pieces of art. I want to buy them because they’re pretty, but I just can’t wear something that makes me that uncomfortable.
All colours and styles of shirt adorn my change room but the black t shirts are the only ones that get worn.
It’s always a thrill to find a t shirt that is fun and funky, black, in my size and, in my price range. My biggest problem is I have no idea what I’m looking for until I find it. I’m extremely picky about what I buy. But I don’t know what to search for to find my ideal pieces. I’m not a label whore so I can’t even narrow it down by name.
Finding pretty sneakers is harder. When the shoe gods make sneakers available in shoe stores in as many varied styles and colours as they do for heels I’ll be a very happy lady.
So, there you have it. I don’t give a shit about the latest catwalk design that makes you look like you got caught on a barbed wire fence. I want tees. Witty, dark, and cute tees. And I want them paired with sneakers.
