Top Tops – Shopping at Your Local

July 4, 2015

If you’re like me, shopping for clothes is either done in a hurry when you’ve got an hour or two spare, online in the dead of night after a glass of wine or two, (never a really great idea), & always at your local shopping centre.

Once upon a time I rued the fact I didn’t shop at designer boutiques, down trendy laneways, stocked with one off pieces that I couldn’t really afford.

In my old age, I’ve come to appreciate my local mall, which happens to be a Westfield (this post is no way affiliated or sponsored by Westfield, it’s just where I happen to shop!).

Firstly, I know this place like the back of my hand.  I also food shop weekly here so I can duck in & out of clothing & accessory shops for a quick squiz when I have a spare bit of time.

Because I’m there so often I notice new stock & sale items pretty much right away!

If I find something I like, because the brands are well known & in bountiful supply around the country, I can hop online & find the item or size I want, or the friendly sales staff in store will track another one down for me nearby.

Cheap & cheerful is the usually the name of the game.

So, I’ve rounded up a few pieces from my local shopping centre, this week, they are all tops.  Funnily enough I’ve ended up with a pretty similar colour palette to my last post (Want, Need, Love – which was all black & red).  Enjoy & remember, don’t dismiss your local mall for some great shopping!
