Shopwiki Shopping Search

I have been in an accessories mood of late. Scarves, bags and nifty little goodies that look good and also serve a function.

Such as this Lulu vanity case for £34

Measurements: 25cm x 15cm x 15cm - comes with mirror and various pockets for keeping your cosmetic odds and ends.

Plus, I have been on the hunt for some quality shoes. My beautiful leather boots served me so well, up until the day I couldn't get the zipper to open and basically had to yank them off my feet, causing quite a bit of pain and frustration. So, the long and short of it is - I need new shoes. Preferably ones without zippers.

My pick - Vintage brown biker boots for £22

These are stylish, I love the colour and they don't appear to have a zip. Heaven.

For some reason, I don't know if it's due to the release of Bruno (I'm sure it isn't!) I have become more interested in the latest fashion trends. Perhaps it's wishful thinking on my part from watching the good weather at Wimbledon and lamenting the freezing conditions here in Melbourne, I have hit on the latest fashion trends for spring.

I am enjoying the slow phasing out of the stovepipe/skinny jeans. They really don't look flattering on many people, unless of course you are Kate Moss or a praying mantis!! The new look is flared jeans and I particularly love these Republic crafted skinny flare jeans for £29

Flares allow for boots, Doc Martens and other such sensible shoes. They also provide a nice balance to the figure and make legs look more elegant.

As you may already know, I like to trawl through the endless shopping sites and search for incredible bargains to expose to my readers. Shopwiki allows a search of around 30,000 shopping sites for bargains, and may become part of my daily searches for undiscovered gems.

  1. I'm with you on those brown boots - fabulous look. Do you do much buying from sites such as shopwiki or do you use them for ideas?

  2. @Brenda - I frequently buy from all kinds of sites US/UK and Australian but I also put together ideas from the looks that I find. As yet I have not purchased from Shopwiki but its only a matter of time... :-)
