    My Shopping Cart – November 2016

    December 2, 2016

    My wardrobe

    Oh my goodness there have been some bargains to be had lately!  Black Friday, Cyber Monday, not to mention the lead up to Christmas sales!  Is that even a thing?  I’m not sure!  What I am sure of, is it’s a pretty good time to be saving some money & stocking up on Christmas gifts or some much needed purchases for yourself!

    I’ve done a bit of both, but I though I’d share with you what I bought this month.  Now, what I am about to show you may seem excessive, but I assure you, all items were carefully considered.  I didn’t pay full price for any of it & that makes me feel a teensy bit better about it all!

    Come, let me justify my shopping addiction to you!!!

    Asos tshirt

    ASOS Metallica Print T-Shirt – I got 30% off everything I purchased at ASOS & I’ve been looking for a vintage rock t-shirt for so long with no luck, so this comes pretty close.  At full price it’s $40.

    ASOS 90s top

    ASOS 2 in 1 Cami Top – Again, 30% off, usually $55.  I needed a new going out top & this one was interesting – channelling my inner 90s gal!

    Sportsgirl BasicsSportsgirl Basic T-Shirts – I renew these tees as soon as mine are faded, have stains or holes in them as soon – as soon I see them on sale I snap them up.  I wear these tees pretty much around the clock.  I know my size so it’s easy to buy them online or in store without trying them on. I got the white Grunge Tee at 50% off – that’s about $15 & they come in a range of colours.  The Black & Grey V Tees are 2 for $40 usually, I got them with additional 25% off.  (I love the Sportsgirl sales rack – it’s an a treasure trove!  Online Sportsgirl have Flash Offers too which they update all the time!)

    Must have sneakers

    Ok, I told a teensy lie.  I paid full price for these Sneak Tony Bianco sneakers – they were $90.  But I bought other shoes so I saved on shipping, right? These Rubi Shoes Walkaway Sneakers are usually $50, I got them at 30% off.  Combined with shipping too – so another saving!  I literally threw 2 pairs of old sneakers in the bin when I bought these new pairs.  I live in sneakers over the cooler months so I don’t feel any guilt at all about these purchases!

    Country Road SummerMy major purchase right here!  I fell in love with these Country Road Soft Tie Details Pants & have been waiting patiently for a Spend & Save to make my purchase!  I got $50 off the $200.  I talked myself out the of Rust Red pair & went with the basic black.  They are gorgeous & I feel totally special in them!

    Foundling ClothingI check into Foundling’s website ALL THE TIME because I love everything they do.  Just waiting patiently for the sales!  I nabbed this Samsara Batik Cami (usually $69) & the Anjeer Pocket Maxi Skirt was a bargain at $39.  Remember to be careful when buying sale items online – you may not be able to make returns!

    Summer SlidesI so needed some new sandals. It was that time of year when I could no longer wear sneakers everyday & found that I didn’t have anything else, other than last year’s old thongs.  They need replacing too by the way!  I must admit I saw Kirsty Ashe Style (follow her on Instagram ladies – she’s fab!) wearing these Gemma flats by Tony Bianco & fell in love.  They were $130 – I got them for $60. These Tiga black flats also by Tony Bianco were $120 – I paid $80.  There are seriously so many gorgeous pairs of flats on sale at Tony Bianco right now, both these pairs are leather – if you don’t have a store nearby – jump online now!

    Pom Pom Fedora

     

    Last but not least – my ASOS Fedora Hat with Pom Pom trim, currently on sale for $25.  I realised heading off to watch my son play tball on the first sunny Saturday in a long time that I didn’t have a hat to wear – my last straw hat was left intentionally behind in a hotel room bin in Bali!  Pom poms are big again this summer & at this price it’s perfect for me to not be too precious with this summer!

    So there you go.  My Shopping Cart for November.  I can assure you that it does not look this full every month of the year!  It’s especially full this month because of all those amazing sales & the change of season meant certain pieces were due for an upgrade!  What about you?  Did you bag yourself a bargain this month??
