Then we had to exchange a Christmas present and that triggers a faint memory that I got a gianormous box from ASOS delivered. I like deliveries.... but I'm straying from the subject, anyway that gianormous box had Christmas presents in it, although I had to pick up a few other things as well to get free next day delivery. I had no choice, I needed to make sure that the Christmas presents for my family got there well in time before Christmas eve. I'm sure I had every intention of just trying these things on and then return them, but I don't think I ever did that - return them I mean. Among these necessities, there was a cute knitted and fitted powder pink River Island jumper that has a detachable embellishment at the front that looks like a necklace with lots of gorgeous sparkly crystals and a bright yellow accent. It's a very playful top and I think it'll work great as a Spring pastel.
There was also a rather cute bowling bag from New Look in a gorgeous deep burgundy color with gold toned fittings, and a detachable shoulder strap in just the right size for a casual stroll on the town, and a chunky gold toned chain style bracelet from River Island with little swarowski style gems.
When I was doing my bit as the supportive wife for the shopping-crazed Him Indoors, I altruistically suggested that we went to Ralph Lauren to pick up some shirts. We both walked out with a shopping bag, which wasn't at all part of the plan - I just wanted to be nice and suggest a good shop. What a great shop it is though, I could easily have bought one of each item in there! I ended up with another knitted and fitted jumper, this one in a lovely creamy off white color with a with shawl collar and a little equestrian inspired gold and leather clasp, which I'll think will be perfect for casual days with some boot cut dark blue jeans. I also got a sleeve less silk top with a v-neck, and sheer waterfall draping at the front in autumn jewel colors in a whimsical pattern. I think it would look fresh and stylish with some skinny trousers and a biker jacket.
Last stop of this shopping bonanza was everyone's favorite budget palace - Primark, and my memory must be coming back now since I clearly remember getting a Fair Isle jumper that I'd had my eye on before Christmas. I didn't get one then because I have more than enough of them, but I really liked the shades and think they're a bit different from what you'd usually see; cream, cerise, aubergine, dusky light purple and lots of other ones. It's such a cheerful top and since I already have worn it I can tell you that it's very snuggly and comfy. The very last item is a jacquard patterned scarf in a swirly pattern with slight shimmer to it in lovely neutral shades, glittering gold and warm pink.
Please note that this is all written with a lot of humour and self deprecation, I don't actually have a problem with my memory, but if I did - I probably wouldn't remember that either...!
