It’s been of those weeks where I’m writing my little fingers off, only to pause occasionally not to eat or sleep, but SHOP. Ha. Ha? Getting my tax money last week has not helped matters. But lest you think I’ve been buying all sorts of shit on a whim, rest assured I’ve been doing some very valiant “investment shopping”. If clothes/shoes/bags (yes, guilty – all three!) could talk:
“My name is Acne Rider Low in Polish Brown. I’ve been on Sabrina’s wishlist for awhile now. You might remember the post where she extolled my virtues of being the perfect combination of cowboy and motorcycle boots. How kind of her, no? Well, not to toot my own horn, but I truly believe that I am a very versatile everyday boot. I will last for ages. The polish brown is a bit unexpected, but stunning in person. And really, who can resist a bit of hunky, chunky love?”
**EDIT** They are too big and the next size down is sold out. Waaaaaaah. Back to the shop they go.
“Sabrina has been looking for a bucket bag for aaaaaaaages. She searches weekly on Etsy, I’ve been told. And since I knew of her love of Vivienne Westwood AND leopard print, well, this was no-brainer. It’s the perfect mid-size, too.”
“Bonjour. I am what may be the most perfect trousers ever. A Carven design, Sabrina loves a higher waist (to avoid muffin-top), tapered leg and cropped length (she’s a shorty). I really hope I can fit on her. Fingers crossed.”
**EDIT** They sent the wrong size. Arrrrrgh. And I can’t exchange, only refund. Arrrrgh. Would have to buy another pair. Arrrrrgh. Can NOT be arsed with shipping charges again, especially if they make me pay the return shipping charges I’m now contesting based on receiving the wrong size. Arrrrrrgh. Matches Fashion: FAIL.
“Oui, oui, another Carven piece! But Sabrina can now call off the search for a short, black, flouncy skirt. She’s been harping on about it on Pinterest for Lord knows how long… ?”
So there you have it, folks. Pieces for the ages. A very satisfying sale season thus far. Because you know what starts next Monday? The international Net-a-Porter sale. *shudder*
