Kimono's at Sunset

First things first, ladies today I completed 100 days of no spending!! woohooo!
I am now free to shop as and how i choose, if we're pals on Instagram 
(if we aren't why the heck not? Lets be!) then today you will have seen me bombard your feed with my news. Way back on 6th Jan i pledged to go on a spending ban for 100 days (you can read all about it and my reasons here) and today marked day 100. I am so so pleased to have completed my challenge i set myself and it has actually taught me A LOT more than i even envisaged. I'm going to go in to that hopefully tomorrow, but for today just know that i am stoked to be done. Come back tomorrow for all my thoughts on 100 days of no spending.

Kimono Debbies for #frockswapuk:c/o George at asda
Skirt: Matalan
Black Vest: River Island
Shoes: c/o Dorothy Perkins Vouchers 
Clutch: Donna's

This is Debbie's #frockswapuk choice from George at Asda which i absolutely adore with its fringing and corals and pinks it is just uh-mazing, my way of styling isn't all that far away from Debbie's here, We both went for the black base and Donna's sweet pink clutch. I actually wore a very similar version of this to a concert with hubs a few weeks ago so this is a definite favourite of mine.
The pleather mini, oh how i love it and these new statement heels are making my feet very very happy i can assure you. What's that famous Carrie quote;

"The fact is, sometimes it's really hard to walk in a {single} woman's shoes. That's why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun"

Never a truer word said my friends!
