Le Blog de Sushi: Retail therapy

Friday, October 22, 2010

{ Retail therapy }

With the amazing exchange rate we've been seeing lately, I've been doing possibly more than my fair share of online shopping. Even though we're going into summer soon in Australia, the things I found on Asos were just too tempting to pass by, so I decided to buy them now anyway and get some wear out of them while the weather is still reasonably cool!

Darling bobble cardigan, Asos faux ostrich leather bag @ Le Blog de Sushi leblogdesushi
I had a hard time choosing between the sweater and cardigan version of this Darling pom pom top. The cardigan won out in the end because I thought it looked a bit sleeker without the bell sleeves that the sweater had. And this Asos faux ostrich leather bag is the perfect shape to compliment the lady-like trend I love so much.

Asos heart cut-out dress @ Le Blog de Sushi leblogdesushi
I've been eyeing this TFNC heart cut out dress for a few months and it finally went on sale. It has a Luella-inspired heart cut out on the front, a bow on the back and comes in a classic cream & black colourway - how could I say no for only $30.00? Hopefully the light skirt doesn't make my bum look huge...

Asos Mango tartan long skirt, Asos cable knit shorts @ Le Blog de Sushi leblogdesushi
I really want to try out some longer length skirts and dresses and I just love the drape, colour and length of this Mango skirt. I know the knitted bottoms trend is not for everyone, but I think these Asos cable knit shorts have potential (and would be much easier to pull off than the Stolen Girlfriends Club hot pants).

Paul Smith socks, Happy Socks socks, Gant Rugger jumper @ Le Blog de Sushi leblogdesushi
And for the boy, a Gant cable knit jumper in cream and some crazy Paul Smith and Happy Socks socks.

Ahhh I DIE! Too gorgeous Sushi, I'm particularly in love with the heart cut out dress (it won't make your bum look big... your bum is too small for that to happen!) and I love the shape of that bag too. I'm obsessed with this "classic" shape of bag that seems to be popular at the moment.

Thank god for the exchange rate. xx

These are all fantastic buys. That cardigan is the sweetest. I've been holding off because I'm doing Buy Nothing New Month... although I don't know how I'm going to go once November 1 comes around. Hopefully my willpower wins out otherwise that would kind of defeat the purpose/lesson of Buy Nothing New, right?

Cute buys! I like the heart dress and the knitted hotpants.

I have not shopped O/S online with the good dollar because my retail therapy has taken place in stores! So many sales. I only wonder when I'll stop requiring retail therapy... there is always some reason for shopping!!

I daresay it's physically impossible to make your bum look huge in that skirt! You're a tiny thing :)
