INVESTING

The shops are full of exciting new arrivals just now. I have, of course, been staking them out. I've certainly gotten better at shopping, in the sense that I need to be able to have a concrete event in mind before making a dress purchase, rather than hoarding them as I used to.
I picked up this black number from Kookai with racing season in mind (anyone else going to Golden Slipper at Rosehill?) It's seriously slimming, shows off the shoulders nicely and has a lovely little frill at the bottom to keep things interesting.


The only "rompers" that suit me are also from Kookai. When I buy shorts, I always have to examine the length of the inside leg. I have this problem with my thighs, you see. I don't have long legs, just long thighs so most shorts make me look like I am baring way too much. These days the inside leg of shorts has crept up by about 70% in most brands so when I find a pair that fulfils the right ratio of shorts to skin, I can't walk away from them. I'll probably wear this to drinks or dinner one night while my brother is here. A sound investment, I'm certain.


I read somewhere that orange is the most rejected and under-used colour, despite giving off such powerful vibes. If you know me, you know I can't bear to see anyone or anything being excluded. But that isn't the only reason I bought this top. Last week I was scrolling my insta feed when yummy mummy and blogger Mrs Bouw posted a pic of herself looking splendid in this very top. It's a head turner and I really do need some charismatic colours in my wardrobe. This one's from Sportsgirl.


I've wanted over the knee boots for ages now. I fell in love with the style the moment I saw Victoria Beckham rocking them in 2005 or 6. As you know, they're huge right now (in more ways than one). I really wanted thigh highs but because of my fabric : thigh shorts rule, you wouldn't see any skin if I wore the shorts and boots together. Also, there's always the risk that if they're too high, they might bear too much of a resemblance to the pair on Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. So, not being a risky investor, the length I've gone for with this Tony Bianco pair is a safer bet. I'll be wearing these all winter long (cost-per-wear = ) with skinny denims.


Which looks have you been eyeing or "investing" in lately?
