Le Blog de Sushi: December shopping

{ December shopping }

With Topshop opening up across the street from my work I've been very tempted by all sorts of Topshop goodies and purchased a few things instore and online. The Australian prices are quite good but of course there is a bit of a mark up. For example, the green cableknit jumper I purchased instore was AUD $77.00, whereas if I had purchased it online it would have been AUD $63.00. Hence I settled on the tights and jumper instore and purchased the rest online, borrowing my fiance's student number for an extra 10% off!

I've also made one or two Romwe orders (love their abundant discount codes) and had a few lucky eBay finds this month. I noticed I may be getting a bit ahead of myself, with a definite autumn theme running through this shopping list... oh well, I do live in Melbourne after all.

P.S. Don't forget to enter the Christmas giveaway for your chance to win a $80.00 Romwe voucher and five other great prizes!

Although there is a mark up, I generally think the topshop prices are better than Zara here. This post is making me wish I could make an online order! I love online shopping.

Anonymous - I got lucky and won them on eBay for $55! :D They're also available in black and turquoise on UO at the moment and are on sale for USD $60 x

Magnet - Agree, the mark up is reasonable considering the costs they need to cover with getting all the stock over here, staffing the store, etc. I've been much more impressed with Topshop than with Zara so far and will continue to buy things instore when there's only 1-2 items I want or they're sold out online :)

Mmmm, knitted shorts! <3
I have a pair, but they're super short. I don't know how I would style it without freezing!

Ciara Baron - Oh what colour do you have? Have you worn them out yet? I'm thinking of wearing mine with opaques and maybe a shirt and cardi/jumper over the top. Waiting for them to arrive in the post so I can play around! x Sushi

Ohh major envy about Topshop. You can always try it on then buy it online :) How does the student number works btw? Does it apply for Australian uni as well?

Steffi - Being able to see and try on their clothes before purchasing is a huge plus! Topshop give 10% off for all students if you show your student card instore or enter a student number at checkout x Sushi
