Back to School – Fashion tips

I remember years ago as a kid I always wanted to look as fashionable as some of my school friends and every term I asked my mum for new things even if my school things were still in perfect condition. I always felt like I needed to wear something new, something my friends didn’t have but I never really thought about my mum’s budget and how it got affected. All I cared about was actually having something new. I wanted to share this post so help some of you with your back to school shopping.

    Love the Kate Spade gold bangle – always wanted one. But my wrists are the size of a toddler’s (no exaggeration) and unfortunately they don’t fit me. I wonder if there’s a Kate Spade kids section for bracelets lol

    • September 16, 2014 / 9:27 pm

      really? you should try kids section for the bangles maybe they might be perfect fit x
