First Time.

Two of my closest friends from back home came to visit me at uni this weekend. We ate delicious mexican food, shopped (and me being me I shopped far too hard for my bank account to really allow, oops) and had a good dance.

For pretty much the first time ever I wore something the day that I bought it. I usually save the items I buy for weeks (quite often months) before I wear them. I have no idea why I feel that I can't wear something until it's not "new", it is indeed very strange and I know it, so I felt rather proud ripping the tag off this tunic (which was only £13 from New Look!) and putting it on that evening!

  1. Oooh I love it so shiny.

    I am the complete opposite! Often found running around town like a maniac trying to find something to wear that night ha.. but that's an awful habit to be in for the sake of my bank balance. Eek! x

  12. Wearing new things is something I have a problem with too. I think I like to make people think that I'm just pulling out something from the back of my wardrobe (and by people, I mean my mom), so they don't know that I am kind of a shopaholic.

  15. that tunic is so fabulous! though I have to say, I differ with you on the whole "save it then wear it" philosophy, I normally like wearing things as soon as I can after buying them!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Haha, that is strange! I really love the tunic though. It looks like you had fun :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I do the same thing! Except if i'm buying something for a special occasion and i have to wear it the same day, but some stuff i buy are saved in my closet with their tags on... i don't take them off until i wear it.
    The tunic looks great on you, it's perfect with the pvc leggings.
    Oh and your hair looks as cute as always!

  25. You sounds just like my mum. She sometimes waits 6 months before she'll wear something new. I don't get it!

  44. haha i'm the opposite, i find it difficult not to wear my new purchases right away, often wear them out of the shop and get into an awful tizz when i've brought multiple pieces and cant decide which to wear haha.

    the opening was ok, lots of standing around in very uncomfortable shoes though.
