The benefits of working in retail are that not only do you always know when the sales are, but you also get staff discount! Over the Christmas period, Myer had some pretty incredible sales on, so of course, I had to take advantage. My family aren't too big on the gift giving during Christmas (no 'what I got for Christmas' post from me), but that's okay with me because I buy my own presents. Some of these items were also purchased the day after Boxing Day, so I've picked up some pretty amazing bargains! I didn't get to go shopping on Boxing Day itself, the launch day of the Stocktake Sale, as I was working and had no time, but staff always get the launch day offers the day after too, which is really nice.
I picked up another MAC Studio Fix Fluid, which is my holy grail foundation, and I've heard really great reviews about Benefit's They're Real! mascara, so I decided to buy that too. With 10% off cosmetics, how could I not? I'm actually surprised I didn't buy more! I do not need any more make up though. I haven't used the mascara yet as I'm still trying to use up old ones first, but I'll definitely let you know if I think it lives up to the hype.
As you can see, I picked up some really gorgeous clothes for summer. I love the stud trend at the moment and needed to buy those red shorts as soon as I saw them. I think those and my Bettina Liano black denim shorts are going to be so nice to wear at summer festivals. The black shorts sort of have sheen to them, which is so gorgeous and would look great to wear on nights out too. I also really love eyelet pattern - I think it's so cute and girly - and with a simple tank top, my pale pink shorts will make for a simple, casual summer outfit. Miss Shop is a Myer home brand and it's one of my favourites because not only is style really me, but it's always on sale with 20% staff discount!
Another trend I really love is the Peter Pan collar and I'm so in love with my new floral top! The floral pattern adds a vintage look to it, I think. After I spotted the top, I noticed the polka dot bag, which I think also has that vintage look to it. I plan on using this bag for the summer festivals I'm going to next year. It's so cute and will nicely hold all my festival essentials without being too big and bulky.
I've been wanting this Bettina Liano skirt for such a long time now and while they never had my size, it was something my mind always drifted back to. Sad, but true! That's when you know you really want something! Anyway, I had a look at it again the other day and found out it had been reduced from $89.95 to $50! Size 10 was the last size they had and I went for it and bought it. I'm going to have to get it taken in, but that's okay because I'm just in love with it. Snake skin pattern is yet another trend that I love and STUDS. You can't go wrong with studs. I know I would have regretted not having this skirt in my life.
Well, that's it for my haul. I'll post a non-Myer haul very soon because I have purchased a lot in the time I've been away and well, I am just constantly shopping. I won't get that post up until next year though, so in the meantime, have a wonderful New Years Eve! I'm having a chilled out one with pizza and drinks with my workmates at a house party. Whatever your plans, I hope you all bring in the new year with a lot of fun and that 2012 brings you nothing but happiness! ♥
