When I got to Lisbon in the beginning of August, I thought I would take a trip down to the shops to have a look at what was going on, in store.
As I walked past Mango, this contrast panelled dress was in the window and, though it attracted my attention immediately, it was the price that made me go in and try it on. Yes, I’m cheap that way. I like to think I’m budget conscious 🙂
Anyway, at €19.99, it was hard to say no! I liked how it looked on me, the fabric and how, for New Zealand weather, it will be possible for me to wear it all year round. I find the colour to be a bit of a challenge, particularly for Spring and Summer when we tend to gravitate towards brighter colours. But, overall, I’m pretty happy with the different options.
Well, all I have to do now is finish my thesis and find myself a job!
