My Shopping Spree

I have very little money right about now, so wasn't intending on going shopping anytime soon! But, I can't go too long without spending money. Luckily, this shopping trip was full of bargains. We went to 'Southhall', which is a place in London that specialises in South Asian things (clothes, food, accessories).

I managed to get the last one of this bag. I love the colour so much and it was only £3.50! How amazing is that? My friend's birthday is coming up, and I bought her a bag as well from the same place. I won't show you a picture or tell you the price because I know she occassionally checks out our blog, but it is a gorgeous bag.



I also got this outfit:
It was literally love at first sight. I saw it and immediately wanted it. I thought the colours and design were lovely. And we negotiated a lot for it. He was selling it at £70, and we got the price down to £40! One of my mum's skills is negotiating prices, so I let her get the price down.

I think the trousers are lovely. You can see the amazing detailing on the side of each leg.

Also, there is a reason for my weirdish pose: I'm holding up my trousers. When you buy South Asian clothes, the trousers aren't fitted at all. They come like 5 sizes too big, and you're supposed to put your own elastic in it.

Have any of you been out on a shopping spree lately?

That's a beautiful outfit... and I love the colors too.

Shopping spree? I bought some Mango tops (same style, different colors) because it's too hot to wear anything else in Manila these days.

Have a great week ahead! xoxo

The little white clutch is so cute. I am coveting a tulle mini in pastel for this season...

Bargainous bag!

I'm so intrigued by the fabulous detail that comes with Asian clothes. I have an Indian wedding to attend in September which means I have to find myself a sari and some other fitting gear, but I've been told I should wait to go shopping over there (Mumbai) as the prices tend to be double and more over here! I can see how such pretty garments can be so expensive though. Lovely, lovely colours.

Gorgeous kameez Sherin! Colours are lovely on you. Do you wear sarees?

The purse is fab too and oh how I love a fab looking bargain! I picked up a gorgeous vintage vibe bamboo handled bag for Aus$2 the other day (this bag) and I'm always on a bargain hunting spree!

You insert your own elastic? Huh. That is weird. But makes sense. haha
