I see, said the blind man.

Topshop boots and jumper, PS1 bag, Asos ring and cuff, River Island skirt and Essie in Angora jumper.

I would have purchased all these items but there were 2 key things that stopped me:
1) I have no money left, apart from some vouchers.
2) It was hard enough to convince my mom to get me the boots above because they were ''totally an investment, and will be excellent school shoes, and you love me'', let alone to purchase yet another nail varnish, silver rings, a leather skirt that she does not like and a $1000 bag. I'm good people, but I'm not that good.
Which means hellz yah, I did score those Topshop Acne Pistol lookalikes which I have been so regretting not pouncing with my ninja shopping skills upon before they sold out- luckily Topshop had restocked size 39 and 40 so I showed them to the mothership and used my finely tuned charm (I threw my laptop at her and begged).
Charm (begging) saves the day once again. Oh the trials and tribulations of being 15.
Still in America, I'm gathering up some of the photos to post about the trip when I'm back home in a week.

  2. lovely xD i LOVE to come up with reasons and ways to purchase new stuff..but in my case is more like: -"Mom, can I..?" -"Dunno, what did your dad say?" and then i'm like: -"Daaaaddy....?"

  5. ahhh the PS1... sigh.

    and begging usually works if you beg long enough.. eventually they'll just do what you want to get you to shut up ;)
