24 hours with One Direction | The Shopping

Sunday, October 5, 2014

I finally had the opportunity to escape rainy Charleston for equally cloudy Charlotte. Luckily the weather stayed nice and dry for the One Direction concert that night. Once we got into town, my mother and I headed to South Park mall to do some shopping.
Inside Nordstrom, is a Topshop pop-up shop, which is a lucky little feature inside select Nordstroms across the country. It was stocked with new things, including Cara Delevingne’s new AW14 campaign was everywhere, too much to my enjoyment. I picked out a black hi-low top that would be perfect for my job (and I also tend to wear black on the regular as of last year). It is the perfect top to go with a pair of jeans and I think it would look even better with a pair of heeled boots. But being about 5’10, I don’t need any added height so I will be pairing it with my flat Steve Madden boots I purchased last year.

I also fiddled about in Sephora, testing out things that were on my list, but I only walked out with one item. I chose the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Buttercream, the body wash smelling just too sweet for me. With the main notes of lime and kiwi, this is another product in my collection that smells like a margarita for my skin (the other one is a facial scrub from Lush). I’ll be posting a separate review in the upcoming weeks.

Unable to resist a good sale, even at Anthropologie, I found a pair of large cat-eye like sunglasses with tortoise shell frames. After visiting another Anthropologie in Charlotte, I picked up four drinking glasses that I have had my eyes on for months. I finally purchased these little glasses, which have watermelons around them, almost like a band.

Lastly, I couldn’t resist - after the concert ended, I ended up buying merchandise. I decided to buy the tour poster, featuring all five boys from their photo shoot for their third album, ‘Midnight Memories.’ I wanted something to remember this wild and crazy show – and a poster was perfect for me!
