This and that. And Shopping.

I escaped The Ville today (I like calling my tiny little town "The Ville" so much that I decided to drop the quotation marks). Didn't do anything overly exciting, just some chores and a bit of shopping. Just a little. Gosh, I feel like an addict. Sitting here all week, doing this and that, working and planning the next shopping trip! At least I'm planning it and not just run around like a crazy person grabbing everything. I'm exaggerating of course, but you know...
As a sidenote, I'm not too happy about the fact that this blog turned out to be all about shopping. But at the moment it happens to be my main entertainment. We don't go out much (that is, pretty much don't go out), I get out "in the open" once or twice a week, mostly to the supermarket or some other chore. I'm not complaining, I do have friends, we do meet and chat, but I don't write about it too much. So let this be a shopping \ OOTD kind of blog, why not.
Anyway, a short visit to H&M yielded first of all the pictures of what I was wearing at the time. Which was the ever so popular floral H&M pants, my black Magashoni blouse which is much easier to wear now, after I added the hidden clips that hold the bra straps firmly attached to the fabric of the top. That's also the reason why I didn't try on any shirts today - too much hassle to unhook and so on.

These pants with this top is my favorite combination. And I wore black flats with bows today, because I had to walk around a lot.

My bugs necklace from Zara attracted some attention. People looked, some of them smiled.

I loved these pink pants but didn't get them this week. I have to think about them. I might get them next week if they're still available in my size.

I did get these pants. They were really cheap. And I saw them on Marie a la Mode blog (I'm linking here but for some reason, Marie's blog appears on the Israeli blogger site and I'm sure it's not supposed to be on it because Marie is from Canada! I don't know what's going on). And I saw them on Fashionista Next Door and I love the combination of pale pink, white and print. I have a pale pink blazer so might recreate this look.

And I bought a leopard blouse. I don't wear as much leopard as I used to, but I've always wanted a basic leopard shirt just in case. So I can cross this off my list.

A trip to Mango resulted in these lovely booties at 50% off. Rough conversion: 75 bucks instead of 150. I've been looking for low-heeled boots like these for quite some time, so crossed that one off the list as well.

The last purchase of the day was MAC Rebel lipstick. I went into the store to buy a compact from their new Marilyn collection but it was sold out. I was disappointed of course, but I didn't really need a highlighting powder anyway, I just wanted the box. So I got this lipstick instead. And then I cheated a bit. I went and bought a cheap lip-liner to go with it (The MAC "Currant" was out of stock anyway). This is Maybelline Colorsensational in Midnight Plum.

Here is Rebel and Revlon Black Cherry side by side. Rebel is much lighter meaning is much more wearable. I'll save the Black Cherry for evenings or goth days (I have those sometimes. Tamed goth though).

Well, the shopping was satisfying, I accomplished almost everything I needed to accomplish today. Something very important did not get done but there was nothing I could do about it. Let's hope for better results next week.
