I love all your Witchery purchases Steph. Especially the liquid top! They had a beautiful version of that top in their winter collection that was woollen and in a amber/chocolate colour. I'm also a huge fan of anything with stripes smile.gif

I think I'm heading into a bohemian stage as I'm loving all that type of stuff. I stumbled across this brand last weekend and fell in love with all their stuff. As much as I'm trying to be good, I just had to have this dress. It's so pretty. So here it is... blush.gif

I also visited two of my favourite ultra cheap shoe shopping places and grabbed these shoes for $29 - they remind me of Ferragamo type shoes. So cute. biggrin.gif

And these two from Rubi shoes for $15 each - not sure about the sparkly ones - but thought they might look good with a pair of 3/4 denim jeans?? Or not... tongue.gif

And then there was this cream stripe Target jacket that I fell in love with to wear with jeans, white tee, my scarf and caramel suede flats. I'm lovin Target lately. smile.gif

And finally my $29 blue jacket to wear with jeans and white tee. It reminds me a bit of an Alannah Hill type look.

OMG Drom loving it all but that cream jacket is to die for!! How gorgeous smile.gif

Nothing to report from me - I have been living in a bronze jersery skirt from Witchery and bought a white blouse that is so effortlessly casual elegance, I just love it! But it is such a pain to iron tongue.gif

Gotta love Target! biggrin.gif

Ohhh Penny your skirt sounds gorgeous! I love jersey fabric it drapes beautifully and feels so nice to wear and bronze is such a divine colour! Not a fan of ironing though. I'll leave that one to you. tongue.gif

I love the blue and red shoes Drom! Very nice! I really like the jacket too, both of them actually. I love Target, I don't have heaps of Target clothes but I always seem to end up with work clothes from there!

It's still completely freezing here so I'm still rugged up to the max. We had a run of sunny weather a couple of weeks ago though and I got a taste of what is to come, it was lovely. smile.gif

I would like some new jeans for summer to wear with t shirts and blouses. There's heaps around but I'm not sure I like any of them! I haven't gotten in to Katies yet to try on the jeans people were talking about in here but it's on my to-do list. I think I need a higher waisted pair, I have a flat bum and no hips so lower cut pairs just sag in the bum and look terrible.

I do love Target smile.gif

Yesterday I got two pairs of flats, one black with a little bow detail on the front and the other red with a cutout pattern, will have to try and remember to take pics. I love the red ones!

Also got a cream and orangey/brown geometric patterned scarf but I think it will be a bit problematic. I kinda just grabbed it on my way to the checkout as they had a $10 off special for purchases over $60 and after unravelling it at home it's quite wide and quite long and I'm... not and I don't know how to wear it in a way that doesn't overwhelm me. I could easily wear it as a sarong it's that big. (And I checked the tag, definitely says scarf not sarong!)

Piper and Windsor I love Target they have great bargains. smile.gif

Piper without a doubt I find jeans the hardest things to buy - well next to bathers. You'll have to let us know how you go and what you find!

Windsor we need photo's of your new shoes and this scarf. It sounds amazing! I'm pretty sure You Tube has stuff on how you can wear scarves a million different ways? You might find something on there? I tend to just wrap mine around my neck a few times in a very unorganised way! tongue.gif

Target online shopping is coming to my rescue, it's pyjama, wine and cheese time on the lounge (DH's grandma is staying with us for over a week and now he's had to go away for work overnight wacko.gif ).

http://shop.target.c...es-with-bow-red These are bright scarlet red IRL and AWESOME

http://shop.target.c...lack-perforated these are the black ones, had the same design (sans toe cleavage, why are there no flats that cover all of my toes... and is it odd that I said I would sunbake topless but don't want to show toe cleavage?... laugh.gif ) in a bronzey/silver colour that have just started to wear out.

The scarf is similar to this http://shop.nordstro...c-scarf/3232856 but because I'm short it just doesn't look as graceful!

Windsor I love the shoes they are so cute! But, I seriously love the scarf - that is awesome! biggrin.gif

Have you had a play around with it to work out how you are going to wear it?

Princessgirl I think they are? I haven't branched to get any. But, I think they look great. Are you thinking of getting some?

I have trouble with Maxis being long enough - they usually come to my ankles or just skim my feet. They look fine with flats (which I usually wear) but there's no way I could wear them with heels.
Anyone seen some nice long ones?


Not sure if their summer stuff is out but last year I bought a maxi from jeans west and it is perfect with heels. I'm 6 foot. If you join their club you can get some great discounts. Just today I got a 50% off already reduced stock via SMS.

Thanks, I'll keep my eye out!

I've signed up to a whole bunch (about 5) of sales websites. I haven't bought anything yet, but it's nice to see what's out there, and from brands I haven't even heard of a lot of the time.

drom I love the Rubi shoes and Target jackets! I am also a Target fan.

Windsor I am liking your purchases too. I am a big fan of anything red, so love those shoes.

Piper I got a great pair of higher waisted (more like mid waisted really but they come up just below my belly button) from Myer back in June for my birthday and they are really comfy and no sagging in the butt area. They are Jag jeans.

Daybreak I have the same problem with maxi dresses. I am 6ft and my legs are a metre long so length is always a problem for me! I have tried on heaps this year and given up. I'm sticking with 3/4 pants and denim skirts this spring/summer. I have issues with casual dresses anyway though, they just never sit right on my body rolleyes.gif

I got an emerald green 3/4 sleeve cardigan and a blue-green 3/4 sleeve cardigan on sale at Myer last week. I am nearly always in black and white but I decided I need a change and I am playing with colour a bit more lately. Turns out greens and blues suit me after all, so I am loving that they are popular colours this year biggrin.gif

Drom - I LOVE that cream jacket from Target.

Windsor - those red flats from Target are very cute. I have the black ones you posted as well and they are very comfy.
