may recap

how time flies, we're now in june! the spring summer sales should be commencing this month in london, before i break the bank, here's a recap of how i boosted the economy for the past month:

the month started quiet and well, until 14th of may where the matthew williamson x H&M collaboration was released.


i bought the navy blazer with contrast piping and the floral scarf...


& the electric blue hoodie with contrasting elbow patches...


& the green patent leather sneakers...

& on the same day i bought the blue suede zara shoes too, which is surprisingly comfortable...

& because we can never have enough shoes i bought another pair - the opening ceremony 2 in 1 ankle boots!

& i also bought a paul smith reversible camel hair scarf from their sample sale last week. most of the good stuff were gone by the time i got there, but i did pick up this gorgeously soft and toasty scarf, for £15! it retailed for £75 originally and was reduced to £49 at their outlet which i almost bought. so when i saw it's reduced to £15 i had to get it despite us going into the summer now.

i also dabbled in 2 auctions curated by parisian auction house "artcurial", and bought the vintage 1930s jaeger lecoultre travelling clock with a lizard leather case, and...

i also bought a vintage hermes belt! however, i still have not received my items yet. more calling and emailing i guess...

and i nearly bought my fourth pair of shoes from emma hope but then they replied to say they were out of stock with the python sneakers.

so i was pretty disciplined for the first half of the month, and all hell broke lose from then on. in total, i spent... £729 on shopping!

here's hoping to a quieter month of june!
