Retail Therapy

Shopping for comfort, I can tell you, is a real thing. I tell you this from experience. I tell you this because I have a problem. That's right, I probably need some sort of AA for shoppers.

My name is Samira and I have a Shopping Problem. It all started when I lost my job about two months ago, I was never an avid shopper. Really only shopping when I needed it, and always with in a budget (see here), I have lost my way.

I claimed in the post above (link) that I rarely spend any more than $10 on anything, and although I have stuck within the limit for the most part (that is a lie) I seem to have overstepped my boundary in the past few weeks with all the money that I do not have.



Twice.
Two shopping trips was all it took, spending a mere $35 on multiple items of clothing in the first (it may not seem like a lot but when you are jobless it is everything) and a whopping $97 in the next. I bought three pairs of shoes in a day.

I guess it could be worse.

Inspiration: the Leather Jacket

If there is one classic staple that every man and woman should have, it is with no doubt a leather jacket. These things are like gold to me, and it is very much so impossible to look any less than aesthetically pleasing in one. Appropriate at any time your outfit can be dressed up or down and worn for both day and night with a simple jacket, not to mention the essence of hardcore vibes that you will be emitting to everyone around you. It's like magic!

Outfit Post 3

So the secret to this outfit post….is that I’ve already posted it. (see here) It’s just a little bit adapted to the cooler days with a jumper. We may or may not have been shooting this in the freezing cold, causing the goose bumps to erupt. Although it isn’t the warmest of jumpers, ofcourse it helps.

This jumper style is particularly one of my faves because of its somewhat skeletal structure, whoever came up with it is such a genius that I bought it in several different colours. No other style does peek-a-boo better.

Winter Fashion: Must Haves

Winter is a time if any to be dressing for comfort, warming yourself up in a burrito of clothing, but that's no reason to not look good (if you're anything like these style snapped bunch).

But ofcourse with anything, there is the basic must haves. A good staple will last you through thick and thin as well as ensuring the warmth you need to get you through the day. My basic default outfit at the moment are jeans, a tee, a jumper, a scarf and a jacket and I've had it on rotation for the last week or so because it's ridiculously cold, but here are my particular staple picks!

1. A good scarf. Forever New are having a three for two sale at the moment so get on it, but if you're sitting around with nothing else to do and craving a DIY try knitting one! It's super easy- although time consuming- and there are a million youtube tutorials out there and a perfect cheaper alternative.

2. Knitwear/Jumpers are amazing at their job. Keeping you warm is what they are here for and are also great for layering under a large coat so they don't need to be thick at all.

3. Boots. Ankle boots to be exact, the new "little black" is the little black boot. You can't go wrong with an ankle boot in any winter outfit.
