Blogging has once again taken a back seat, not only due to the stresses of the undergraduate life, but also because my memory card has sadly gone walkabouts. I have a couple of items in the pipeline that I really want to review so I am hoping that it turns up soon as there are also a fair few photos that I want to get printed and have not saved anywhere else. Back up people, back up!
This weekend, Rob and I ventured to Bluewater as it is a rare treat that he has some dollar in his pocket and it was burning some what of a hole. There really were few things on my
wish need list that I hoped to find, a new pair of jeans were about as exciting as it got! I despair at the thought of jeans shopping, being of a petite stance; too often petite jeans will fit length ways but not around my hips, either being far too big or far too small yet equally as troublesome, and vice versa. I tend to find that only Topshop salvages this problem but at extortionate prices and not very good quality; I have found that their skinny jeans are not capable of holding out for more than a handful of wears and washes before the material starts to fade and unravel itself, and for 40 quid I expect a hell of a lot more.
And then there's Dorothy Perkins. Brilliant, underrated Dorothy Perkins. Stumbling into their petite section and finding their jeans at a mere fraction of Topshop's price, I decided to give them a go only to be very happily surprised. The length is perfect as is the measurements around the hips, very true to size I would say; a jean that truly accommodates for the petite fille. Plus, with a whopping 25% student discount at the moment, it is a worthy investment. Does anybody else have this much trouble buying jeans?
Anyway, to finish quickly as I have babbled quite a bit, one thing that I really did want and, to be fair, am in
desperate need of is a new bag. A large bag, big enough and sturdy enough to accommodate for all of my handbag needs. For day to day life, I prefer a smaller, more compact bag, but my uni bag is falling to shreds after about 4 years of day to day usage and so I reckon that warrants a new investment! The bags I have chosen above are my favourites that I have found whilst scouring shops and the web alike, but I am holding out until I have scoured some more. Any recommendations as to where else I should look?
