my trip to the river island sale in town came up with more than i had anticipated - the bullring store i visited on new yr's eve had nothing of interest - at all! - well, nothing that we could see from the mountainous rails and piles of sale things, in a mess..i don't know whether it's the conscious decision not to spend too wildly or what, but i just haven't been that into the sales this Jan!
that said, my sunday afternoon cycle into town ended up in a few purchases - these are all from river island, and i have to admit, i kind of like them altogether like this..
the striped top is actually a short-sleeved body; i don't have any proper t-shirty ones, i've always found them to look a bit too clingy, but i like this, and it looks more like just a tshirt when on..
i wasn't overly enthusiastic about the prospect of a cardigan with shoulder pads, but to be honest they are very small, and when i wore it, barely noticeable!
and as for the shorts..they have been my river island guilty pleasure for goodness knows how long..as in, i have liked them but refrained from purchase with thoughts of "they're probably impractical" or "i don't want to look like an extra from robin hood"..but when i saw this lonely pair in the sale, i could resist no more..having tried them on, i like them but they are a bigger size than i would usually buy, and that concerns me as i don't like the thought of being even bigger than i already am..skewed logic, maybe, and i know i shouldn't care what the size label says, but i do..so i may cut it out..
total sale spend : £30, which is less than the amount transferred from my paypal a/c to my bank this week - that's got to be good, right?!
