Buy Buy Buy!
The most oft-asked question during my year-long wardrobe spending freeze was: "Will you go mad when it's over."
Honestly, I hadn't intended to.
My son had asked me to visit our local town to buy some sporting goods.
Unfortunately, the shop had closed down.
But I had paid 60p to park for an hour and didn't want to waste the money.
As I passed Clarks I noticed there was a sale on.
And next door was Principles with a massive 70% sale on.
And yes, I bought.
Here is the evidence.
In my defence I would like to say these are investments.
1. A pink dress that fitted perfectly and I will wear it for Seth's christening and Christmas Day (with black tights). It is silk and was reduced from £99.00 to £20.00.
2. This flirty striped skirt will be a favourite. Marked down from £35.00 to £15.00.
3. These patent leather shoes from Clarks in my favourite winter colour will be worn to death and with a £20.00 reduction how could I resist?
4. This matching patent leather purple purse will be used every day and reduced from £24.99 to £7.49 what's not to like?
I rest my case!
