But in Melbourne? There were clothes that were actual COLOURS. Sure, I forked out $550, but I got 4 tops (three in shades of blue, one black), a jumper (red), a cardigan (blue), a pair of cords and two pairs of shoes. One pair of boring black flats, and these:
It's IMPOSSIBLE to get nice shoes in Canberra. The number of shoe shops that have closed down at the Canberra Centre since I moved here is ridiculous.
|Once again, I wasn't in the garden. I just wanted decent light.|
So when I found these in Melbourne, I jumped on them. Almost literally. It went something like this:
Me: Oooooooooooooh, look at the pretty...
Mum: But you need black flats for work.
Me: But...but...the PRETTY...
Mum: They're not black flats.
Me: [grabs a pair of black flats] Fine. I'm trying them both...
Mum: *rolls eyes*
So, one trip to Donny Shoppo Land (aka Westfield Doncaster), an hour and a half, and a rather exhausted credit card later, I can safely announce something that I already knew: shopping in Melbourne is ALWAYS better than shopping in Canberra!
