On the weekend I went shopping and became a little crazy with my spending in the Forever New buy one get one free sale. I'm pleased with my purchases and I have already made a few different outfits with them. I especially like the gold skirt which I wore to work on Thursday. I have had my eye on the polka dot dress for many months now so I was very happy when it came on sale. I also bought a mini hair straightener this week particularly to use regularly on my fringe. Its so small and will be perfect for holidays and weekends away.

1. Forever New Floral Skirt
2. Forever New Bow Top
3. Vidal Sassoon Mini Hair Straightener
4. Forever New Polka Dot Dress

5. Forever New Sparkly Skirt

That will be the end of my spending for awhile. I must save money for my short trip away which is in three weeks.

Both of the Forever New skirts are very pretty and girly - love them. i use a blow-dryer and have never tried a hair straightener. Are they easy to use for a quick touch-up here or there and do you have to be careful about burns like when using a curling iron?

The polka dot dress went on sale?! Awesome! I'm happy that worked out for you. It is adorable and definitely my favorite of the items you've purchased. My second favorite is that classy sparkly skirt. It's very 1960s, which I ADORE!!

Why, oh why, do we NOT live in the same city?! Both of us shopping together would be so incredibly awesome and fun. Sigh. Maybe one day if I win the lottery, I will fly out to Australia and we'll go on a fabulous shopping spree. Cross your fingers! Hehe. xoxo

I can deffinetly see you working the polka-dot dress. The bow tank though has to be my favorite of the bunch!

It's too bad you don't celebrate halloween too much where you live, but I'm sure candy is available year round! haha :]
