two by two..

shoes: marks and spencer // dress: monsoon
necklace: topshop
cardigan: h+m
I might have mentioned (briefly) last month that I'd decided on another month's shopping ban. I have to admit, I totally failed it when I went to Liverpool for the day with two of my best friends. I suppose I did quite well that day as more than half of my purchases were paid for with vouchers or had been won, so I didn't feel as bad as I could have. The following day, I popped into my nearest Primark to return / exchange a few of the things I'd picked up on the previous day's binge, which actually resulted in my coming out £14 better off, with other, new and pretty items.

Anyway, on my way back to the car, I passed Monsoon and couldn't resist this dress, so popped in and bought it on impulse. A definite fail of the shopping ban, by anyone's standards. I'd not seen it before, but it's on their website here now as well, in case anyone else can't resist it either..

I wore it with a cardigan which is fast becoming a firm favourite (although I did drop it on the changing room floor and manage to lose a couple of the jewels from one of the buttons, which I'm hoping won't be too noticeable to anyone but myself. Add to that my green M+S heels and my Noah's Ark necklace, which I picked up in York last year and haven't really worn much - I am making a bit of an effort to try and wear some of my masses of jewellery.

Has anyone else not been able to resist an impulse buy lately? I'm sure I can't be the only one!


  1. Eek, I love that necklace!

    Who could resist that Monsoon dress? It was crying out to be impulse purchased.

  2. Impluse shopping is the bane of my life haha! This dress just had to be snapped up by you!

  3. Ahh I love that necklace! I wish it was a current line; shall definitely have to keep my eyes open for it on eBay. The dress is really pretty, too :)

  4. How amazing is your necklace? I absolutely adore it and need to know why it isn't in my life!

  5. I was actually going to email you about this dress, because i think I saw it in an email from them this week and thought you'd love it. It's very pretty. I've been splurging with the spending lately, but only because after 2-3 months of having no money, I have some now! I also started a smaller portion thing this week and just ate a white Magnum because I was so hungry...I have no willpower!
