I went to the mall the the other day to buy groceries. It’s the closest cheap supermarket to me and it’s easy to get to without a car. The only problem with going to the mall is walking past clothes shops with all their sales.
I admit I went in to a few shops to try on some clothes. Sometimes just trying things on and realising they don’t look good actually helps me with my shopping addiction – It stops me from buying clothes that I’ll never wear.
But there is the inevitable problem of finding something you love. Or something you have been searching for for ages. Or something that fits amazingly. Or all of the above.
That happened on Tuesday.
I found a pair of mint stretch jeans in Factorie. Now I have difficulty finding jeans that fit me well. Often jeans are too small to go past my thighs, or too big around the hips or waist. Some jeans are made for curvier girls like me, but then they are to tight around the waist and give me an awful muffin top.
So when I put on these jeans and they fitted me perfectly, there was no resisting. They were on sale as well so I definitely couldn’t say no.
Then I realised something even more awesome – they were reduced to $9.95. Yep, that’s right – sale items are reduced to $9.95 at Factorie right now!
I also found that Factorie have a fabulous section of cute crops. I am loving the crop trend right now, and there are a few different styles of crops available in Factorie, so I definitely tried on a few!
Considering it’s spring, I am drawn to all the pastel colours. I couldn’t say no to this pastel pink crop in Factorie. It’s perfect for spring and lets you dip into the pastel trend without going overboard. Plus I think it perfectly compliments the mint colour jeans as well.
I found two tank style crops that were part of the 2 for $20 range. There’s also some t-shirt crops that you can mix and match as part of this deal.
Equip also have a great sale on plenty of bags and jewellery right now. I got two necklace and earring sets for only $8! Bargain!
And remember, whenever you need some basic yet stylish shoes, definitely head to Kmart! I love Kmart shoes, and as per usual, I got a great pair for next to nothing.

Now I’m off to enjoy the fabulous warm spring sun…
