Wayne Cooper wedges from Myer From $200 to $30. I've had my eye on them for a while now so when the bright red 75% off sign yelled in my face, I immediately succumbed to the all too familiar lure of cheap shoes.
I've let me guard down lately and fed my inner materialism monster - with a huge ASOS and Book Depository haul as well as seemingly random outbursts of money spending while walking around the city. These shopping blackouts of mine leave me vulnerable and slightly terrified at my capacity to throw away money as though it isn't real. And these are just the accessories I've bought recently.
Vintage necklace from eBay.
Secondhand octopus brooch and wooden animal necklace from Bankstown markets - Guess what's my new hobby? Haggling? Markets are the only acceptable environment in which I can openly let my frugality wild and loose.
Pot plants (3 for $5) from markets
Delicate gold necklaces + Apple core necklace, thrifted - These necklaces are perhaps my favourite out of everything I've found recently.
Oh and just quickly - I had the pleasure of going to Noah and the Whale's gig in Sydney, and it was my first ever live music experience. And it was amazing. They were amazing. Who knew awkwardly standing around swaying to indie music could be such a wonderful experience?
And I started at Le Coq Sportif! So far, really great. My coworkers are ace and I'm not bad at selling things. I even bought jeans to wear to work (first time in what, 6 years?). If only you guys could see my work uniform - a polo, sneakers and jeans. Yep. I walked out of my room and my dad nearly rejoiced at how normal I looked.
