Hello, I went shopping yesterday with my mum and relatives for the Boxing Day sales. Here's my little haul on the items that I purchased at the mall in my city's centre which has plenty of shops for everyone. I know Boxing Day is the 26th of December but in my city, the shops didn't officially open until the 28th :| When I went yesterday, it was SO packed!! People everywhere and escalators would constantly be filled. I have never been shopping on Boxing Day right after Christmas so this was something quite new for me. Never had I seen so many people at this mall at one time, it was utter madness. I didn't even go that early but if I was there when the shops opened, I think there would have been lots of pushing, shoving and running xD
Luckily it wasn't like that for me, just numerous lines to the checkout and harder to browse properly because people were everywhere. Shopping with my mum and relatives meant that I couldn't just go into the shops that I wanted to see - I also had to go in ones that they liked (e.g. aunties and mum) didn't interest me, but I wasn't too concerned about that. The Boxing Day sales over here weren't as good as I expected them to be, however I was glad that I could snatch up a few bargains =]
I had nothing to haul about from Christmas (don't really celebrate it) so I've decided to show you what I got after Christmas x] Sooooooooooo, what did I end up getting?
Floral skirt with belt - $9.95 from Temt (RRP $24.95)
I think this skirt is really cute, I love floral patterns and I love how it came with a belt
It was the last one and luckily it was in my size!
Grey frilly dressy/casual singlet - $9.95 from Temt (half price)
It can be both casual and dressy, which is why I like it =]
Light blue denim-style leggings - $6.50 from Suite Boutique (half price)
Not something I'd wear in summer but wait until winter comes - I'll be glad that I bought these leggings :D I like how they're a light blue because I already have a dark blue and a black one of this
Brown Bluebird crossover bag - $14 from Strandbags (RRP $24)
I've been looking for a cheap crossover bag. I was going to get one for $20 last week but I'm really glad that I didn't because I like this one more
I bought a pair of shoes
Grey peep-toe flats - $25 from Mathers (RRP $79.95)
:O This is the biggest saving out of all the items I bought yesterday
It says $49.99 but there was a further 50% off reduction on top of that ^_^
My feet are considerably small, size 6 and a half to 7
These are really comfortable and $25 from $80 is a big difference :-)
My mum wanted me to buy some comfortable walking flats for uni next year, because she reckons I will be walking a lot, which is true I guess
Not a huge fan of feet and pictures of feet but yeah, they fit pretty snug! This picture can be for you Thomas and Chanel :P
What could be in this pretty pink box?
Earrings and necklace set - $5 from Diva
Testing the sparkle in the sun. Quite pretty
I remember seeing these before Christmas and thinking "ooh what a lovely gift these would make". I feel a bit bad for those who did buy this as a Christmas gift because they are now worth less than half the RRP!
That's all I got for myself. It isn't a lot but I'm very happy with what I got and I think I might be going shopping again tomorrow at a different mall to check out the sales there too.
I wore everything together except for the leggings to make an outfit. I could have worn the leggings too but eh, not suitable for summer weather right now. How strange, I didn't realise that I had all of the items from my haul to make a wearable outfit completed with shoes, a bag and accessories.
Who's my photographer? No one, just used the timer on my camera and tripod
If I had someone to take this photo, a strand of hair wouldn't be sticking out because they might be nice enough to point it out or fix it :(
Now you can see my shoes
I don't think I'd pair the singlet with the skirt for an outfit to wear out because it covers my belt =/
You can see a bit of my stomach... lol
At the back of the singlet it is just plain. The straps are adjustable
The next pictures remind me of a girl being happy and waiting for her date to arrive xD
I ran out of poses to do so I just did random things
Don't mind my commentary, haha
*smiling to herself*
*checking out the necklace he got for her*
*wandering around while waiting*
*admiring the earrings that he got for her*
(He's here!) *She suddenly becomes shy* :3
Close-up of earrings and necklace. They're simple but I think they're cute :)
I really want to get a second piercing on my lobe
And ARGH again my hair is messy in those pictures. I swear, my hair never falls perfectly no matter what I do. Maybe I should straighten it next time.
Well... here's my excuse for not having nice, un-messy hair...
Hahaha, good enough excuse yes?
I thought it'd be cool to have a picture of me jumping. I look weird but ah well x)
I'll try to post again before the end of the year :) I have a few days left though, eep!
