Alannah Hill, FASHION, Uncategorized SHOPPING @ PADDINGTON 16 January 2007

So whilst shopping at Paddington, my aim was to find:
1) a bridesmaids dress for ‘s wedding
2) a dress for the wedding dinner

Well, I did buy 2 things, but completely different to what I’d originally set out to buy. *lol*!

Ended up getting a lovely Alannah Hill necklace – all shimmery with crystals and gold trimming. I have a lot of turquoise in my wardrobe, so this will match nicely! I was actually eyeing it months ago when it was first released for the Winter collection, but resisted getting it because it was sooo $. But today it was on 20% off so I decided to treat myself 🙂

Then it was on to Luisa Clare. I love her stuff – it’s all leather and they smell and feel divine. Plus they’re really unique and her bags are slouchy and soft. I was there before looking for an across-the-shoulder bag, but couldn’t find one. This time, I did! Plus, there was a 50% off sale!! It was a sign 😉 I found my perfect across-the-shoulder bag – all slouchy and soft, and girly. It fits in a ton and will be a nice casual bag for everyday use.

So mission accomplished, yet unaccomplished 😉

    I don’t even like pink that much and I love that bag! I wear my purse mostly over my shoulder because it’s a pain to keep pushing it up my arm, and that’s so adorable and perfect. Great find!

    Across the shoulder bags are so convenient! I was using one for over a year until I got my Crumpler and now I miss the convenience of a hands-free bag.

      Ya I agree! I’ve been looking for one for awhile, as I get tired carrying my bags over my shoulder sometimes. This one’s way more convenient

      Nooo sorry! It’s Alannah Hill and they don’t have an online store, but someone may sell it on eBay eventually?

    I really like the handbag, very pretty and the necklace is cool too. One of my goals to accessorize more often.

      The bag’s so comfortable to wear, and I don’t freak out about getting it dirty/damaged like I do with my Balenciagas.. so I stress less 😉

        haha, don’t you hate that? things call to me too, forcing me to buy them.

        thanks for adding me. i love the japanese straightening treatment. you should try my product too! it does the same thing, except you can basically do it yourself at home if you have a cermaic straightening iron.
