Fifteen or "Free-stylin"

Who doesn't love a freebie? I certainly do!  This has been a weekend for them, of sorts... Friday arrived with a mid-morning phone call from La Durée - I'd won their weekly business card raffle and could I pop over there to collect my prize, a box of 15 macaroons? Why yes, I most certainly could!  I promptly dropped everything and hot-footed it over to the City to collect my loot.  Aaah, bliss.  I've pretty much polished off the lot now and am still making self-satisfied lip-smacking noises.  Mmmm.

On Saturday I tasked myself with buying some denim short shorts, as I have two holidays coming up within the next month and my wardrobe has been crying out for a pair for absolute yonks.  So I presented myself at Topshop and determinedly tried on EVERY SINGLE STYLE in the shop.  I'm not joking, it took me two hours, three fitting room sessions and about 50 self portraits, from every angle, on the trusty iPhone.  I finally made my choice and on paying was surprised and delighted to hear that they were just £7!  I hadn't even realised they were in the sale - that's almost a freebie!

I'm rocking these shorts today, here's how: first without, then with my beloved Topshop faux-leather (let's actually NOT be pretentious.. it's pleather) biker jacket:

Necklace: Primark
Apricot / Peach Vest: Topshop (Size 8)
Denim Shorts: Topshop (Size 10)
Footless Tights: Topshop (Size S)
Ballet Pumps: Primark (Size 5)

Pleather Biker Jacket: Topshop Petite (Size 8)

This ensemble also features the first outing for a Primark necklace I picked up recently, at just £4 is was also an almost-freebie:

I can't go without showing you my winnings from La Durée.  Start salivating now:

As they were.  Now there's only crumbs left.


Gluttony over poise every time
