Win-dow-shop: To look at merchandise in store windows or showcases without making purchases. (The official definition, according to the free dictionary.)
Dress-room-shop: To try on merchandise, pose for the camera (optional), purchase if like. (The official definition, according to me.)

I was in the mood for dress-room-shop yesterday, as opposed to win-dow-shop. The store of choice? A-wear. What can I say? I can't wait to be a furry monster this year. Layers and layers of material in the faux-fur variety. I will be a fur version of the Michelin man. Can't wait!

And, just say if I ever got tired of the fur Michelin man look, I also dress-room-shopped this horse print (again with the animals) shirt and mega palazzo trousers.

Dress-room-shop (also, seen here & here how fun you are! Are you a fan? Oh and yay or nay to my Michelin man look? All clothes via

I need to try this form of shopping ha-ha most of the time I would probably be satisfied with having a nice picture of something and save my money :P I absolutely adore your layered furry look SO cute :) and the last photo's colours suit you so well which I'm jeloous about because they look odd on me (maybe coz i'm so pale/dark haired?)
