New Shopping Venue and Other Random Things

Over the weekend, after my volunteer, thought I'd check out the new Topshop that opened nearby.



And boy was it huge! If I heard correctly, this is one of the bigger stores outside UK.



And that's just part of the shoe department.



The accessories department has its own corner.

But in the end, I didn't get anything. How about that? Not counting the fact that I'm sorta' in a pseudo shopping ban (sorta'? pseudo? does that make it almost nil?), it was just so busy in the store I was getting sensory overload. Me! Of all people!

So next thing I knew, my feet took me across the street.

Anna dello Russo collection for H&M

And guess what, I didn't buy anything there either! What's going on with the shopping universe?! O wait, I did buy something. (Oh, how quickly we forget). I bought some woolen knee-high socks... And a belt... And a snood... But wait, they're necessary accessories! To keep me warm for winter! Ok, a belt wouldn't keep me warm. Ok, not that I have no scarves at all. But still, in my mind, they don't count! Do they? They're necessary accessories! HAH!

Anyhoot, today, for the first time this season, felt like winter's just around the corner. And I thought the day calls for something hearty and warm and cozy for dinner.

Beef stew with barley

And with Halloween just around the corner, not that we "celebrate" Halloween, I came across something fun that I just couldn't walk away from.



Random things, isn't that what I said?... hehe...

  2. I've found it's quite easy to get sensory overload in Top Shop. That beef stew with barley looks like total comfort food.

  3. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed in big stores like that I can't focus and leave with nothing.

    The pink wig is adorable.

  7. When a store is crowded, I can't shop very well either! HAHAHA I really become overwhelmed. I do a lot of online shopping. That TopShop is HUGE! We don't have one here in New Orleans, Louisiana. So I just look online. Your beef stew looks so good! I love chunky meals. Great post!
