Shopaholic Abroad – My Recent Buys


I am extremely fussy when it comes to color co-ordination and matching clothes. I can’t just throw anything together. Whether it’s my shoes and bag matching colours, or coat and shoes, or accessories and belt matching something, it really doesn’t matter. Here are a few matching buys.

As you can see, I love black and gold.



As much as I love heels and wedges, I absolutely LOVE biker boots / ankle boots, especially with a bit of silver or gold. They’re so comfy to walk in, and look perfect with leggings, or jeans tucked into.


Another fave of mine which you will not see me without, is accessories / jewelry. I love my white gold and silver. Other than that, I like dress jewellery. Matching sets – earrings and necklaces are gorgeous. I have my ears pierced 3 times, and my belly button. I had a small stud in my nose last year, but stopped wearing it. Here are a few things I have and love.

I also really love the Hamsa hand / Hand of Fatima, whether it’s the bracelets, earrings, belly bars, handbags, clothes etc. It’s my lucky charm. I always wear a Hamsa Hand. It’s a symbol used as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history. It protects against the evil eye, and negativity towards you. It can also come in the shape of an eye.


Here are a few celebrities wearing the Hamsa Hand / eye. Fans and believers are Shakira, the Kardashians, Rhianna, Jen Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Nicole Richie, Michelle Keegan, and more.



Here are my other Hamsa Hand accessories.



And when it’s chilly on the nights, (mainly in the winter), I needed a new warm coat. As I love black and gold, I purchased one in this colour. It has a hood, and leather material parts, which will match my black suede and leather leggings and shoes perfectly.


I love wedges. They’re so comfortable, and can be worn in the day or on the night. I also love simple plain vests in various colours, and black shorts which can go with almost anything.


I love bikini’s, and seems as I live in Spain, and we have 7 months of sunbathing weather, I own a lot of bikini’s. My most recent buys were this pink bikini, and black fringed bikini. No doubt I will be buying more this year.


I practically live in leggings. And jeans. Well, in the winter anyway. I love straight-legged jeans, ripped jeans, baggy-boyfriend jeans. The lot! I team them either with biker boots, wedges, knee boots, or heels.


I absolutely LOVE dresses! This long black dress is one of my faves. And the back bodice / patterned skirt dress I have yet to wear. The other black dress is simple, and can be worn for any occasion teamed with chunky accessories, or flip flops. My black ankle wedge boots can be worn in the daytime with jeans, or a skirt / dress on the night.


Here are a couple more dresses I bought recently. The red dress is from River Island, and I cannot wait to wear it! The accessories are to match the black dress, glamourise it a little.


I have a slight obsession with handbags. I own so many! One of my faves is my hot pink Guess handbag and matching purse, which I bought from Selfridges, my navy Lipsy bag, several Pauls Boutique, and a Michael Kors.


Although I prefer to dress girly in dresses, I also like to keep with the latest trends, and as it gets so hot here, I have to wear summer clothes. From the months of May-Oct, I practically live in shorts, crop tops, dresses, vests and flip flops,or sandals. Here are a few outfits I have. Although, I’m yet to wear some! They still have the tags on.


Below I have crop tops, shorts, a skirt, and two dresses. One is a gorgeous greek goddess type dress. It floor-length with a gold belt attached. I am yet to wear this. Preferably at a cocktail bar in the daytime.


I have yet to wear these clothes. I have only worn the black and white crop top with a long black gypsy skirt. The other clothes I think will go well with my NY cap. I do like to dress sporty / hip now and then, although it doesn’t happen too often, as again, I love to dress girly.


Below are some vests, which go with a lot of my outfits. This body con dress is one of my faves, and looks so classy teamed with heels. I also puchased some gold midi-rings.


Here are some more of my dresses. I have only worn to of these dresses so far – the white and the gold body-con dress which are more faves of mine. They fit really well, and can be worn on the night with heels.


I am yet to wear these also. I puchased some black and white shorts to wear with a plain vest, a white wrap-over skirt which I love, some white faint floral shorts, and a black and pink dress for on the night time.
