Sigh. Gone are the days where the nearly dollar-for-dollar exchange rate on our Little Aussie Battler meant that Online Shopping was as cheap and easy as the trek out to the Mall.
We’ve been meandering around the 64c mark lately, and if the doom-and-gloom business reports are to be believed we could be looking at a drop to a little as US58c to the dollar in the months to come.
As a result I’ve developed a new “look, don’t touch” approach to online shopping that I’m finding seriously depressing.
So, in the honour of my poor empty mail-box, lets all have a moment of silence for Lillipilli’s Internet Shopping Wishlist:
Uppercase Scarf: Little Factory
Have you ever seen a cooler scarf for booklovers? I haven’t!
Heather Shoes: Duo
Duo Boots are so deliciously comfortable I can only imagine that these shoes would be heavenly to wear. Good sturdy block heel and a cute bow on top. I’d wear them with a tweed pencil skirt and a silk blouse for that secretary chic.
I’m desperate for a pair of brown boots to wear over jeans once the cooler months hit. These fit the bill perfectly, and I love the buckle detail.
This red dress is perfectly scarlet, and the flutter sleeves add a touch of fun.
I’m all about fuschia at the moment – It’s my New Red (or at least it would be if I could find it in any shops!). This dress drapes in a way that suggests it would evoke a great va-va-voom silhouette.
Dress: Dorothy Perkins
Oooh – imagine this over a pair of opaque stockings – it’s a little bit Blondie, and a little bit emo, and all style. I like the low-riding belt.
I haven’t had a lot of luck with shirtdresses – they always gape – but I suspect this one from Bravissimo (cut for girls with a bit more boobage) would fit just the way I want it too.
I love my PJ top, but I’m a bit nightgown fan, and now I know how well the inbuilt support works it’s hard to resist shelling out the extra funds for one of the nighties.
