Before I get into the meat and veg of this post, I’d like to say hello to the lovely young woman I met in Target today. I was wandering around aimlessly (as I am wont to do in my lunch break) when she asked me if I was Kath and told me she read my blog and thought I was doing an awesome job. I was so tickled I forgot to ask her name and properly make her acquaintance. You made my day, lovely Target shopper! You know, that’s the third time someone has stopped me in the Myer Centre Target to tell me they read my blog and praise my work. It’s no wonder I hang around there so much!
So anyway, because the last few posts have been so intense, I wanted to have a bit of fun tonight and just post a bunch of pretty stuff because I like it.
I have been shopping quite a bit lately, because I got my tax refund back and promised myself that I was going to enjoy all of it on luxury stuff, since I had been a good girl all year long!
First thing I bought was this coral blazer from Autograph Fashion:
I actually went and gazed at it longingly, tried it on and then put it back on the shelf. Slept on it overnight and rushed back to buy it the next day at lunch time!
Also from Autograph, I got this gorgeous lace edged kaftan:
It also comes in a deep eggplant purple, which I am tempted to go and buy too!
Today I picked up two pairs of flats at Target, first pair were these bold orange ones:
And I also got these lovely soft pink ones:
And lo and behold, Target had a plus-size garment I actually liked! I got this little white cropped cardigan, it’s on sale this week:
I’m all about cropped cardigans over dresses at the moment. Speaking of dresses, I got TWO gorgeous Leona+ dresses from Myer for $35 each! Considering they’re normally $149 each, I couldn’t leave them behind. You’ll have to excuse my very amateur photographs of them, I can’t find good ones online.
The bottom one is black with purpley-blue and red in the print, and I love the V-neckline with collar. I do love me a Leona frock. There are some really gorgeous ones in the new stock, I have my eye on a bold purple 60′s kind of print one at the moment.
Now how about some stuff that’s on my wish list? Just for fun?
Well, while we’re on the subject, this bird print dress from Anna Scholz makes me drool:
It’s no secret I’m fond of animal print, but this snake print tunic, also from Anna Scholz is just delicious. That colour is gorgeous.
While we’re on colour, how about this Neopolitan Maxi Dress from Virtu?
I saw a pair of lemon coloured wedges today that would work perfectly with this dress.
And this skirt – well, leopard print. Enough said:
I’d wear it with a whole lot of bold, bright colours though, cos I embrace my inner tacky.
File this one under “Things I love that don’t come in my size.” How gorgeous is this peplum dress from Dorothy Perkins (not linking cos they don’t cater to my size!)
Of course, then there’s eShakti, who DO cater to my size (I’m about a 4X, but they go up to 6X, yay eShakti!) but don’t ship to Australia. Sob! If they did, I would buy this dress in a heartbeat:
Anyone in the US want to hook an Aussie up with a supply of eShakti dresses? Especially this dress!
This skirt, also from eShakti is gorgeous too:
Oh, speaking of things I can’t have, I’m REALLY kicking myself that I didn’t buy this dress from Domino Dollhouse when I had the opportunity:
I actually had it in my shopping basket and went right through to the checkout process and then caved. Then when I decided I really did want it, it was sold out. DAMMIT!
How about we end with something that is a total lust object that I dream to own someday? Can you guess what it is?
Yes, it’s Fluevog shoes! Look at them. Look at how gorgeous they are!
Or if you’re feeling really brave (like I am), how about this pair:
So what have you bought lately? Or what is on your wish list (or perhaps dream list)? Let’s have some fun, do some virtual shopping and share some pretties. We’ve all earned a break.
