This morning my walk to work looked like this:
Sydney has been blanketed by a covering of fog/mist for the last two mornings. It's such an unusual occurrence. I don't think I've ever seen fog here before.
It was quite beautiful in a damp kind of way. Plays havoc with one's hair, though!
The next part of this post is a confession:
Forgive me, readers, for I have sinned. I have coveted and then succumbed to ordering items from J Crew. I had vowed to stay away for whole month, but have fallen off the wagon 2 days early.......
Mitigating circumstances exist, however. My crocheting superstar friend, C is in New York this week on a work trip. She offered to pick me up a few little bits and pieces from Sephora and J Crew, and it was just too good of an opportunity to pass up. Prices are much lower in the US, plus she got the 30% off deal... so in reality I saved money (can you believe the utter nonsense I tell myself to justify my crapness?)
C got me the lovely necklace above, and this scarf below:
I love the floral punk print, but didn't think any of the clothes would suit me. The scarf will add a touch of brightness to my foggy days.
The necklace is just pure indulgence.... hope it suits me and that I like it!
The other confession is this skirt:
I've become a bit obsessed with it since it appeared on the site. C offered to get it for me too, but it wasn't reduced and it's too big of a risk to get it and then not be able to return it if it's a disappointment or doesn't fit.
Beach Chic Style has reviewed it on her blog and had a bit of a sizing issue - it fits very small, apparently. This could be a good thing for me, but it's risky to get it without the option of returning it.
Anyway, I took the plunge today and ordered it with the magalog15 code that gives international customers 20% off and free shipping and returns. It is back-ordered 'til 13th July, so patience is in order.
Many thanks must go to both C and Wendy, for offering to mule it for me from Canada. It seemed silly to put Wendy through the hassle for a $30 saving, not to mention the aforementioned risk of not being able to return it.
So endeth my confession.
Have you sinned recently? I hope so!!
