I have been in a self imposed shopping hiatus since November- after a flurry of purchases from September to November.

Today I broke it!!

I visited a lovely local boutique and added a new black lace dress - NZ designer Ingrid Starnes - perfect for the wedding I am attending in mid winter with a coat outdoors. Made in NZ.

And a caramel sweater - with a shine and sparkle through it. Portuguese brand Robens Saloner - perfect for wearing with jeans and boots, or black pants - and a perfect match for my faux fur.

What is more they were on sale for $99 each;)

I am delighted because they fit in with my winter needs- fit my style direction - and I love them.

Quick pics taken but not really styled properly.
