Back to the Shop

Thanks to those who commented on my previous post; it’s nice to know that there are people who can relate to my situation and sympathise with it. I’m starting to get out of my funk and make plans. I hope that anyone else who may be going through something similar or going through their own personal situation will not go through it alone.

Since my last haul post I have come to the realisation that even though I don’t earn a lot of money, I’m more frivolous with money now than nearly 3 ½ years ago when I was practically living on next to nothing. I’m impulse buying a lot more which is not good especially when I know that my money could put to better use i.e. paying off student debts. Anyone who assumes that everyone who works in the legal industry is drowning in loads of money - I am currently living proof that it's not the case for everyone!

That’s not to say I will never indulge on an impulse purchase, but I have to gain better control on what I am spending (especially after what I spent this week on beauty products - but more on that in another post!). And with that I have decided to return a dress that I bought from H&M.

I bought it last Thursday after trying it on the previous week before. I have been umming and ahhing about the dress since I bought it. It is a nice dress, but to be honest I think I would only wear the dress once before it would be confined to the dark corner of my wardrobe for at least the next year until I would finally dig it out and attempt to sell it on eBay. It’s not kind to the dress or my purse…….

But before I take it back to the shop, here are a few pics of the dress:

Dress - H&M £29.99
Belt - my own (well actually from another H&M dress!)

Back View - the back is longer than the front
reflects the high/low trend that has been on the high street

H&M is my drug…I just hope I can actually refund the dress and not exchange it for something else!


  1. Love your blog! Hope you will check mine out and let me know if you want to follow each other : ) Take care!!

  2. Oh dear, I fell just like you. Last year, when I finally graduated university and got a job, even though the slary wasn't much, it was wayy more than what I used to get and I felt like I deserved to splurge every month...was living paycheck to paycheck...I had a wake up call recently when an emergency happened and I could not pay for my own transportation to visit a family member-NOT COOL! I've really cut back now. 1 trick is, I give my brother most of the money and I cash the rest- for some reason, I hate spending cash but I loveee to swipe. Will actaully create a post on this next, you've inspired it! :)

  3. ohhh.. girls and shopping, that's a real issue. if i invest my money into clothes i really choose items which are really worth it and i know i'll wear them several times. also i make sure that i can combine it to many outfits. i mean i love (to look at) designer clothes but i definitely can't afford it - so i go for h&m an i loooove primark!! so cheap and still stylish.

  4. Obsessed with H&M. I think you have 10 days to get a complete refund if you paid with a card. good luck, love. If you get a sec, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my latest outfit post. xo

  5. I can't wait for H&M to open in Houston next week!
