New In: Sadie's been shopping (a lot!)

Hi all, how was your weekend? Hope you all had a great time! I had a fun weekend and have some SHOPPING to show you! 

As I mentioned, I'm going to Fiji in 10 days, so wanted to get some cheapish new clothes to take with me. I find that year on year I have taken the same dresses to Miami and the Bahamas in 2008, Samoa 2009, Fiji and the Whitsundays in 2010 and was determined not to do it this year! I don't get the chance to wear these types of clothes other than on a tropical holiday, which is why they've come with me each year. So I bought a couple of newbies to mix in with the trusty oldies!

So here are the new holiday clothes!
A beach top that was a total bargain - $8!

I love this dress, it was $16 and is such a cute holiday dress! It's a thick cotton so is really stiff and lovely :D

Another top - this one buttons up the front and has a drawstring around the waist. LOVE the colours. Also $7
A fairly plain blue dress but it looked really nice on. I thought I can also get use out of this in every day life! $40

The bf when he saw me buying this top - "Not MORE animal print!" HA! $20
A playsuit which I envisage with high wedges! $35
Love the wooden buttons!
A super long maxi dress which will NEED high wedges!! $60
This dress looks really elegant, and I can wear it to work when the temperature gets a bit warmer! $50

A lot of new clothes to squeeze into my wardrobe!
 I told myself I DID NOT need sandals. I have tonnes of sandals from last summer. But when the bf was busy in one shop, I went a-wandering and spotted these fabulously sick glitter numbers and sadly couldn't leave without them. I've even already worn them on Saturday night!!
Do you love them!? $100
I bought the exact same wedge last summer, in cream and rope. They are SO comfy.
 ALSO new in, but not holiday related:
Genuine pearl drop earrings. Very exciting!!
Some jumbo heated rollers - any tips on use?? I've never tried them before!

My fabulous Michael Kors watch! I used the voucher that I won on Aprilia's blog towards this beaut!
Lots of new stuff - eek. What have you bought lately? :)


  1. I love all of your buys especially the leo print top and those glittery sandals!!!!!!
    Yesterday I bought a lot of stuff at H&M and Zara! I have to restrain myself somehow!

  2. Wow! Who's been a busy girl!!!! Lots of gorgeous prints. I love love love those glitter wedges & I also love your new watch. Happy holidays Sadie xoxo

  3. Blimey! What a spread! Love the glitter shoes - although heels aren't my friend so I could never wear them *sigh* but I can admire them!

    Funny you should post this today actually - I'm going to Thailand/KL/Singapore in Jan and I was thinking today how I pretty much have no wardrobe for this trip! Your haul has given me a few good ideas :D

  4. I'm loving Michael Kors watched at the moment and those gold, sparkly wedges are gorgeous! Great post.

  5. Wow you did go shopping haha we would make good shopping buddies ;) I totally saw those wedges in Hannahs! I think the 3 pairs of wedges I bought on Saturday are more than enough though lol. Love the watch I realy want me a chunky big silver watch.....Im keeping my eyes peeled for "the one" xx

  6. Oh my! You HAVE been shopping a lot haven't you!? :)
