Back to Basics – Fashion Haul

As you may have noticed from my last post I have done a bit of shopping in the past weeks and it didn’t stop with beauty and make-up. When I go shopping I am usually very instinctive and I end up buying eccentric items forgetting about the basics therefore I took advantage of the sales for buying basic clothes. Firstly, I decided to do some online shopping on Asos because I didn’t find anything interesting on physics shops.

May I call that obsession? Maybe yeah, but they are my Linus’ blanket for the autumn-winter and they match perfectly with any outfit. Those are a few items I might wear: My broken friends will be repaired in a short time but there’s a major problem: the impending spring.
