I'm a little behind, but I've only just realised that tomorrow is Chadstone's VIP night. That means 10-40% off full price merchandise in most stores, fashion shows, free alcohol, exclusive events, blah blah blah, you get the idea... Basically, a whole lot of good stuff will be going on and you have the potential to save some money (unless you hadn't planned on buying anything but end up going just to buy something, in which case, you're not saving...)
Now, I'm not saying that I'm going to be attending, but in the off chance that I do get to go (98% certain that will be the case, lol) then these are the items at the top of my shopping list:

My eyes feel like they've been bathing in holy water. Just look at how gorgeous these Chanel nail shades are! I have swatched Peridot and Quartz in a DJ store and thought they were both pretty, but not essential that I have them in my collection. As soon as I got home, however, the shopaholic in me demanded to know why I hadn't purchased them and now I'm up all night, viewing other blogger's swatches of these gorgeous fall shades. When something I want occupies much of my thinking time and even makes appearances in my dreams, that's when I know I have to give in and let the shopaholic win.

I'm not into bags that scream "look at me, I'm a designer!" But I do like a well made handbag. This Burberry bag is nothing special, but there is something that I really like about it, even though the label is obvious. I think the only reason I'm obsessing over it is because I walked into a Burberry store one day and picked it up and thought "wow, this matches my outfit perfectly!" So naturally I felt that I needed to have this in my handbag collection because it suits one outfit so well. #trueshopaholic

I'm sick of my manicure chipping two days after I've lovingly applied it. I have tried products that claim to resist chipping (OPI I'm looking at you!), all sorts of base coats, even the good old swipe with nail polish remover before applying a base but I still get chips. The Chanel Protective Base is one I haven't tried before, and I'm keen to get my fingers on it... or rather, it on my fingers! It's supposed to treat your nails as well, so that's a bonus. BTW, OPI Chip Skip does work, but it dried out my nails terribly and made them split :-(

Ok, so I'm watching Miss Universe 2011 as we speak and I just heard the commentator mention earlier that nude heels are very popular because they elongate your body. I'm all for it! This one here is the Issabella 2 in nude leather (from Zu). I have never been into peep toes until the start of this year. I think it's so sexy to flash your toes in a high heel, and I have tried these on in store and they are quite comfortable. Nude peep toes will go well with any outfit, so it's a great investment. (Trying to convince myself that it's an essential in my wardrobe, so just go with it).

Another shoe I want. It looks much cuter in person and on than it does in this picture. I want this shoe because I wrote an outfit post awhile ago and this shoe was featured in it. Also I saw it in store and fell in love. It's the perfect spring shoe and a versatile colour. And I promise you that you can run in these heels! That's a huge thing for a mum like me with a three year old who cannot stand still. I can't remember the name of this shoe, so I apologise. It's from Aldo, one of my fav shoe stores.
I'm getting tired and even though there's a bunch of other things I want, I'm going to hit the hay because I've gotta be up early and fresh for my possible jaunt to Chadstone. Oh, who am I kidding? I won't be walking, I'll be running! See you there (maybe)!
