today i bought...

Shopping in Manchester was quite an exercise in self-restraint. I came across literally everything I've wanted in the last few months, particularly a to-die-for Topshop coat in blue wool with black leather sleeves. But with a price of £170, I had to tear myself away from it (with great difficulty) and hope it's reduced in the January sales. I also resisted some ridiculously amazing Zara snakeskin boots (not exactly a snip at £90). In their place, however, I treated myself to this equally lovely serpentine shirt (for £29.99). I'd had my eye on it for some time, ever since I featured it in 8th October's "today I'd love to wear", but unfortunately my size had sold out online before I got around to ordering it. You will no doubt know how obsessed I am with snake print, so there's no doubt I'll be getting my money's worth from this beautiful classic shirt.

My only other purchase (pretty impressed with my self-control) was this pair of simple bracelets from H&M, for £7.99. I love the minimalist design, with just the unusual fastening adding a little bit of interest. They'll be the perfect subtle finishing touch to almost any outfit.
