Retail Therapy: Session 3 - Orla Kiely


Oh boy, okay so I got home the other day... Thursday as was and I decided to take a look see over at the Orla Kiely website... big mistake. They have just released their fall things online and I went a little mad. I find that I almost go into some sort of trence when shopping and I don't think anything but a bomb going off would be able to snap me out of it. Therefore I bought pretty much everything. lol. Okay, not everything but a lot. Below are the things that I bought and I figured that this pretty much counts as a shopping therapy session so... voila!
