pre shopping

I started using my gift cards by buying this lovely dress from Zara on sale :) ( they are renovating all the stores in Tel-Aviv - major sales! ) :

Whenever i buy something my mother makes me feel bad about it.. so today when I bought those shoes after 2 weeks of craving she had to ruin my good mood by telling me "you won't be able to walk in these and they don't compliment your feet" . thanks mom.
( the dress she actually loved -very rare )


I was thinking about buying this bag with my store credit in ALDO :

but I just found out that the bags in aldo in the USA are cheaper ,for example this bag costs 100$ here and only 39.98 in USA.
it doesn't seem like a problem because my flight in next week and I can buy the bag there - but I can use my store credit only here!

** sorry for the bad pics..

Hello! Well you could always come hang out with me in NYC ;) (seriously if you'd like to, email me at athornton@gm.slc.edu and we can work something out, because I think it'd be fun!) Other than that I pretty much keep to my little east village area, which is super fun and has lots of little parks and coffee shops and restaurants and shops. If I think of anything else spectacular I'll tell you!

haha... moms will be moms. my mom always makes me feel guilty when i want something, but after i get she usually likes it. so i just have to survive the guilt trip in the beginning! the dress AND the shoes are marvelous! =) and i'm sure it'll compliment your feet. and with a little practice i'm sure you'll be able to walk in the sandals. they don't look too high!

the dress is FABULOUS. The shoes are very cool too, very grungy. Hmm, I'd buy the bag in the States, so you'd have an excuse to buy more shoes with your store credit!

The success Zara has in the world is really fabulous. The firts time I went to a Zara store I couldn't imagine this success story; I was in Sevilla in 1994!

Those shoes are awesome. I love when there are BIG sales!

Dana (pron. like Donna) said...

the dress and the zipper heels are INCREDIBLE! Wish I was there for all the finds...
About Aldo - do not pay 100 dollars on a fake leather bag, ew. 40 is ok and buy it at Aldo USA or online.
I think using the credit for shoes would be better :)

Psyche said...

LOVE that dress. And, the shoes are great. I've been searching for some shoes with a zipper detail.

Fashion's the word said...

My mom is exactly like that, always critiquing my outfit and style. I actually adore your shoes though.

Coming from a new reader-- I LOVE your blog!

גם אני בניו יורק עוד מעט.. ב27
יש לך אולי מושג אם יש מקום שאפשר לראות תצוגות אופנה או לקחת קורסים וכאלה ?
אהבתי את הדברים שקנית ובאמת שתחכי לניו יורק הרבה יותר זול.
