june recap

here's a recap of how i contributed to the retail index for the month of june:


when in milano, we buy prada! i bought this pair at the milan flagship, reduced by 50%! it's probably cheaper if i buy it in london as the euro is so strong, but you do random things when you're on holiday.

from the previous post, i also bought a beaded lanvin t-shirt, a short sleeved dries van noten shirt, a gucci spring jacket, a pair of massimo dutti loafers, a pair of H&M canvas deck shoes (holy cow three pairs of shoes in a month?!), and a mustard colored burberry prorsum spring time sweater.

in total, i spent... £953, bummer! send money, tin soups (clam chowder or pea & ham) and baked beans (heinz please) to 00o00.blogspot@googlemail.com. thank you


& you thought i was the only one. reader alan sent in a pic of his recent purchases. i spot 2 balenciaga jackets, the beaded lanvin tee in black, and not one but two of that long sleeved dries van noten shirt! and the jil sander tops, and the dries and lanvin shoes etc. recession much?? & eerily similar tastes!


here's my recap from previous months...
