Boxing Day Haul!


Hey lovelies,

Here is my very late Boxing Day haul post! My sister Casey and I went to the Boxing Day sales in Palmy while my Mum babysat Noel. I was thrilled for the opportunity to clothes shop at my leisure, so went a bit nuts! No grabbing a basic thing that fits to get out of the shop quickly as many Mums will be familiar with. I branched out! Here are the results:

PS. Sorry for the atrocious photos, I photographed these on my brother's duvet with flash (photographers will be cringing at this) and it

The first thing I fell in love was this top from Portmans. It was so unlike anything else I owned that I loved it at first sight. Unfortunately I didn't have a bra that would work with it, so I put it on hold for an hour while I tackled that dilemma. But as you can see, victory was mine and I prevailed :D
This photo is not colour accurate, picture a light neon chartreuse shade. If that makes sense! I believe this was about $13 on sale, which is amazeballs for Portmans.

At Farmers I picked up an Aah Bra style thing and have practically lived in it on holiday. SO comfy and super flattering! I need several more in different colours! I also picked up this black rouched top, but I'm having a bit of regret on that one. It makes me feel too top heavy... but I've only tried it with skirts so far, I might feel more balanced in jeans.
Both items were around $12 on sale.

At Jayjays I had a great time! I picked out the orange singlet as a good basic tank for $5, and then found the polka dot dress and fell deeeeep in love. Even better, it was only $10 and included the belt! I grabbed the coral bandeau for $5 to go with it. The neon yellow lace dress is very different for me and is one Casey told me to try on. I really like it though, and it was a bargain at $15.

Over at Valley Girl I branched out even further, nabbing this striped peplum top with a neon belt for around $10 and a Peter Pan collared sheer black blouse for about $12. I am now officially obsessed with Peter Pan collars and want ALL THE THINGS. The last top I grabbed is a bohemian/gypsy style one which is a tried and true style for me. It was $10.

At The Warehouse I was all about SHOES! I got 2 pairs of flats, some jandals and my first pair of wedges. Can you believe I've never had wedges? I've always been curious, but stuck to heels. These are much comfier though! I wore them to work yesterday and they're so cute.
I also purchased this hat for Barrier, sun safety for the win! I grabbed all of this and a can of Redbull for about $50. Hooray!

Our final clothing stop for clothing was Cotton On. I got this rouched retro one piece for $5!! I also grabbed a basic black skater skirt and a kimono style dressing gown. I've been wanting to get a summer weight dressing gown for a long time, so I was really pleased with this. I can't for the life of me remember how much the skirt and dressing gown were - not much though!

Moving away from clothing, I purchased this very sweet camera print case and red drawer at Typo for a few dollars each. I'm not yet sure what I'll do with the red drawer, but it looks like a good size for storing nail art plates.

Finally the beauty aspect of the haul! I was VERY restrained and only purchased items I needed for the most part: hairties, Revlon false lashes for New Years and dry shampoo. The mascara set was $6 on clearance from Kmart - I only wanted it for the waterproof mascara which is surprisingly very good! I hope to get a review up of the set soon. I also purchased a Kleancolor waterproof liquid liner and a mini Sunsilk shampoo & conditioner set, which I forgot to include in the photo. It felt weird not buying any polish at all, so I picked up BYS Mint Condition at Bling for $5. What a fab impulse buy! The colour is divine and the formula is great.

Thanks so much for reading. Did you do any Boxing Day shopping?
