This week’s shopping haul

April 17, 2012

1. Wooden dolls from Behind the Monkey

2. Alexander Wang Rocco in Rose Gold hardware

3. Missoni Chuck Taylor All Star Converse in green

4. Apple MacBook Pro

It was quite the week for shopping.

Our five year old laptop is dying a slow death. And since this computer holds all our lovely music and photos we had to urgently get a new one.

I’ve been umming and erring over the Rocco bag for a while now. I even pitched the idea of getting this bag as a nappy bag to DH when I was pregnant with Lily. But that idea quickly got thrown out of the window when the SA frankly disapproved. She claimed it would be too heavy and DH agreed. Damn those honest SA’s.

But good things happen to those who wait as I think the latest release of the Rocco with the Rose Gold H/W and shoulder strap makes it a more ‘polished’ bag.

As Lily is becoming less of a baby, I’ve been trying to incorporate some different toys to decorate her room. I love these Japanese inspired wooden toys and I think they will easily last into her primary school years.

And finally, it must have been my last post about chevron stripes which got me thinking about these shoes! I adore the soft pastel colours and the intricate detailing of the signature zig-zag with the hint of  sparkle. I’m a huge fan of both Missoni and Converse so couldn’t resist getting these shoes.

Have you made some big purchases lately?

      I wish we had H&M in Australia!

        I’m so sorry you don’t have one…I’m sure you will soon, though. They’re popping up all over the place!

    I’m a bit of a new fan of the Rocco, especially with the rose gold HW. Love recent purchase posts – makes me feel like the economy doesn’t need my help! lol

      Yes it was rather a ‘big’ week for purchases! I was hesitant with the rose gold because it looked shiny but the aesthetic and shape still makes it a casual bag so it doesn’t look blingy

    Love the Converse for Lily! So cute. Baby shoes get me every single time. Have you seen the massive collection on piperlime.com? Truly awesome! I plan on spending a lot of time on there when we have a bambino. Planning a new computer purchase myself but going for a Mac desktop… If only they would hurry up and release their 2012 model!

      Whoops I should have mentioned the shoes were for me! LOL! I would love to get a pair for Lily but she is growing too much so it would be a waste. I have to check out piperlime.com…thanks for the suggestion!
