10 Best Acquisitions of 2015

Paul & Joe Flamingo Blusher | Shopping Inspo

I know January is nearly over and I seem somewhat late with this but I still want to take another quick look back…These are my top ten favourite new items from 2015 – things I bought and particularly liked over the course of last year. All of these are items I still use regularly or at least get a lot of wear out of…

What prompted this recap? I have an admission to make – I am actually planning to challenge myself to a shopping ban for at least a few months this year. I haven’t yet decided when to start but will tell you more about it when the time comes.  My motivation is largely that I want to be a bit more mindful when it comes to shopping and partake less in consumerism. I have found myself spending way too much money on clothes and accessories for years now. Making myself aware of the basics of my wardrobe is a good first step for me so I decided to take this look back. To sum it up, most of these picks qualify as good buys because of their versatility and wearability for both work and special occasion looks.

    love the look of the eye palette. I hope your ban goes well when you start, everytime I start I then see on someones blog something I MUST get (I dont need it but I become too weak) so I fail.

    • caliope

      That’s exactly what I’m afraid of…but I will try my best :)

  6. Gemma

    Great items, I love all the boots and the black dress. I think you will get so much wear out of them. I’m also trying to be more mindful with my spending. It’s really hard work! Have a great day! Gemma x

    • caliope

      It absolutely is :) but worth it, hopefully! Have a great day!

  7. Mica

    Love the black ankle boots the most, but you bought some great things in 2015! :)

    Good luck with your shopping ban – whenever you decide to start it! I did ‘no buy July’ last year and it was an interesting experience for sure :)

  21. Rae

    What lovely purcheses! The colors in that Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette are just absolutely stunning and I think a shopping ban is awesome :) I know it is hard for us bloggers to step away from shopping as we feel it does belong to our jobs in some sense so that we can review things for others, but it is also good to step away from constantly consuming every now and then as well!
