Stripes and Polaroids

Shirt from Dotti
Jeans from Forever 21
Shoes from Rubi Shoes

Yesterday I went on a little shopping adventure and ended up buying four new tops and a pair of shoes. For the past three weeks I have been in a state of utter mess, and let's just say it wasn't pretty. I've been stripping, sanding and painting my dressing table -- basically turning it from a dark wood to all white. It's come up very well, but in that time where I had no where to store my clothes, I was not a happy girl. Now that my bedroom is actually tidy I can breathe a sigh of relief and get on with my life.

The point is -- while clearing out most of my clothes in the process, I had realised that I really do not have all that much that I would wake up in the morning and be happy to wear. I needed some basics, and yesterday I came away with this really nice striped shirt from Dotti, the fabric is quite heavy and good quality. I am picturing wearing this with a black skirt of some sort (another basic I really need). I really am a sucker for stripes, I could wear a striped shirt any day of the week. This one is now sitting happily in my newly refurbished dressing table, and I can't wait to wear it all sorts of different ways.

Right now, the only alternative to wearing a dress or skirt for me is wearing jeans. These are my favourite jeans from Forever 21 which I picked up in America, what, seven months ago? Wow, has it really been that long? These are my favourite thing to wear mostly because they are so comfortable, they almost feel like leggings. I find that most jeans can be so stiff and so uncomfortable that I don't like wearing them because I definitely opt for comfort over anything else. These really are the closest thing to boyfriend jeans that I'm going to get right now -- does anyone else have the problem of finding well fitting boyfriend jeans that don't make you look like a farmer?

Now, I really wish I bought more Forever 21 jeans because they were so cheap and something I wouldn't really find in New Zealand stores. That's another reason to build a Forever 21 here in Auckland, okay? Please.

On a side note, Polaroids have been adorning my walls as of late and this camera is my new obsession -- too bad it adds up to about $1.50 for a photo in film. I'll be sharing a few snippets of my bedroom soon, and I've got a mini haul post planned for the near future.


  1. I want one of those polaroid cameras so bad! Love your top, I have a thing for striped t-shirts but don't actually own one yet. And yes we need Forever 21 in Auckland :)
