May has been one of those months
where I must admit that shopping got
a bit out of control.
It all started with this black and white Anne Klein dress.
I had been lusting for months now after this YSL black
and white skirt with the side pocket:
The dress was soooo similar...
I hunted it down on line but could
not find it. Then after going to 4 stores
I found it, one piece in my size... for 117.00 USD
it's more than I usually spend on a dress,
if you follow these purchases posts you know what I mean,
but, I just had to have it.
Then I took a brief vacation and
walked into every single H&M
store I encountered.
I have a weakness for this store.
While in Luzerne I bought this H&M flower top on sale for 20.00 CHF.
In the same store I picked up a pair of neon trousers.
Neon. Neon for 15.00 CHF. Neon.
Also bought on sale a pair of black and white trousers
on sale for 10.00 CHF.
I call them the orcas, they remind me of the orca whale.
While at the Zurich airport I walked into H&M
and picked up this striped dress for 14.90 CH.
How could I say no ?
At the same airport store I walked off with
a pair of blue printed trousers and matching sleeveless top,
each for 14.90 CHF.
While walking in Amsterdam my shoes got wet.
I entered an H&M store and picked up a pair of
grey sneakers for 19.50 € (25.35 USD)
I never wear sneakers, however I liked these.
I also picked up a pair of turquoise/green suede bow flats for 5.00 CHF.
While in Istanbul I fell in love with a simple pair of colorful silk flats I
saw in a store window, these were 30.00 USD
Another item I purchased were these tiny hand painted typical Delftware windmill earrings for 7.00 USD.
Also from H&M a bottle necklace for 3 euros and a round
porcelain ball pendant necklace for 2 euros - about 7.00 USD total.
From Istanbul, a long thin silver necklace with zirconia
for 30.00 USD
From Amsterdam I also picked up a delft pendant (9.00 USD),
in Istanbul grand bazaar I picked up 4 silk bracelets (total 32.00 USD).
The original idea was to keep 2 and give the other 2
as presents, but I still have not made up my mind
because I like them all so much.
I picked up 4 bags for 410.00 USD
(one of which I am considering in giving away)
and a keychain for 7.00 USD-
This adds up to triple 7.
Yeah, I went so overboard.
I don't even want to write the number down.
