Despite the Christmas season I haven't been shopping much recently. I only got a few new things and, to be honest, some of them I got from my family as early Christmas gifts.
In general I'm disappointed with this season's trends.
- cardigans decorated with beads and sequins
- angora wool sweaters
- leopard print
- asymmetric, one-sleeved tops
- synthetic fabrics
- intensive colours (royal blue, dark red etc)
- CRUSHED VELVET
What's wrong with all of the above? Absolutely nothing. Except for the fact that my grandparents used to import such clothes from Turkey in the '90s. The cheapest, the most kitschy clothes you could get. I though these things would never come back. But they did, and they didn't even change much. Even crushed velvet is back. And THAT is the greatest sin against fashion in history. This fabric should be burnt and sent to Siberia. WHY is it trendy again?!
Needless to say, I have problems finding clothes which I like this season. I couldn't find anything for my mum either, so I ended up getting her a H&M gift card.
However, I needed a couple of longer tops because my current body shape doesn't allow wearing shorter of tight ones. So I bought these two:
Also, I couldn't stop myself from getting these two completely useless pieces:
Some other things I bought:
I probably won't be going shopping any time soon so these things I bought have to satisfy my shopping urges for a while ;)
