I don’t really understand people who shop for fun. I get no enjoyment from trawling round shops in desperate need of an item that I have in my head which probably doesn’t exist in real life. And I’m currently in complete denial about the fact I need a new winter coat and therefore am avoiding ‘winter-coat-shopping’ like the plague…
All of my clothes seem to be purchased while I’m (usually late and in a rush) on my way to do something other than shopping for clothes. This week was a good week for accidental top-shopping.
Bought from Dorothy Perkins last Sunday while on my way to Sainsburys for the weekly shop. Worn on Friday to work.
Lace shouldered t shirt from Oasis.
Bought while en route to meet Welsh Helen (check out her fashion label Helen Rhiannon) for wine and catch up on Thursday. Worn for unplanned but massively drunken Stoke Newington pub crawl with Zeba on Friday.
Cream swing top with zip frill neckine.
Bought from Topshop after meeting with Olly to retrieve my house keys on Friday
Worn to Doug and Ruth’s leaving party at the Grey Goose on Saturday.
I usually buy clothes with the frugal (Scottish) intention of returning them. Too late for these 3… All worn within a week. Must avoid all shops/people/places for a fortnight in penance.
