+ high-res version

Anyone suffering from shopaholicism (yea I just invented that word! haha) look away!  For I have been eyeing up some great stuff be it a pair of shoes or a technology accessory, that staple leather jacket every wardrobe should have or the Chanel bag. Sigh! the list is never ending. But the key is to buy pieces that stay in your wardrobe for at least a couple of years because not everyone can afford a shopping spree every week or month!

I subscribe to credible online shopping sites like The Outnet (a “considerably” cheaper version of Net-a-Porter and owned by the same company)  and Brandalley. That way I find some amazing bargains so for me it’s a year round sale! So here is a list of  things I’ve come across and I think will be great additions to any wardrobe plus a couple of wants (which you don’t necessarily need!)

1. Leather Jacket

So normally I don’t buy leather jackets because when I look at the origin of the jacket- most of them come from Pakistan. And that’s a great thing because Pakistan and India source some of the best leather and that is why most of the jackets in Zara, Mango and TopShop would either be Made in Pakistan or Made in India. What stops me from buying them is the exorbitant price tag that comes with the jacket. Frankly, I can buy a stylish leather jacket from Pakistan for fraction of the price. HOWEVER! (Yes, there is a however!) If you are looking for style and unique design then forking out on these jackets is definitely worth it.

It’s a great thing then that Muubaa’s Spring Summer collection of leather jackets is on SALE on Brandalley. Just one more day to go and you can bag yourself up to 70% off so I say why not!! Click here to avail the fantastic offers now.

2. Technology Accessories

I love technology. I love gadgets and I love the fact how designers have come on board designing some amazing accessories for them. I love my iPhone 4s and I cannot help buying accessories for it. Some times people make fun of the fact how much casing I have for that one phone. How ironic it would be if I still manage to smash it! (I HOPE NOT!!!)

Anyway, I never knew that apart from designing some drool-worthy dresses, Lanvin actually designed an iPhone 4 case! I came across this lovely surprise on Net-a-Porter’s website. I have to say it is one of my most favourite at the moment. For £45 it’s not exactly cheap for a case but then again, how often do you buy a designer case for your phone.

3. Makeup

With summer around the corner (I know I’ve been pining for them since forever and I hope summer this year isn’t the peek-a-boo kind!!) it’s all about the pinks and the peaches. So I am loving this soft glow blush by Chanel called Blush Horizon De Chanel. It’s all about keeping it understated especially during the day and let your skin breathe under the sweltering heat.

And I also love this strawberry pink lip colour by Chanel. Ah! I can just picture the whole look. Mmmm summer.

4. Footwear

How often do you come across the perfect golden pair of heels that are not too over the top yet classy enough to stand out? D&G have this perfect pair on sale! For £71 you cannot go wrong and they are a gorgeous pair and they look so comfortable.

Gearing up for the new season, I’m also trying to get fit. And by trying I mean finding the right pair of trainers. So that means I haven’t really started running or working out yet! I know, I’m more excited about what I’ll wear than the actual exercising! haha. But anyone remember the Puma Alexander McQueen collaboration? I remember my (late) fashionable friend Sareena wearing one of these. She was the most fashionable person I had known.

This rib cage design is very McQueen and a great motivation to work out in these fabulous shoes. “Oh darling! I’m working out in my McQueens! Pha pha pha!” I can’t believe I just said that. -_- haha! *cringe*

With 54% off, they’re selling out fast. So make sure you get your hands on them IF you like ‘em by clicking here.

I guess that wraps up my shopping splurge for the week. I do want to add loads more stuff but I am holding back. A little at a time! ;)

Again, the key thing for me is being in the loop, subscribing to credible websites and hunting for the best bargain! The adrenalin rush from that is better than plain ol’ retail therapy! ;) Till the next one. xx
