…I harped on the other week about not buying anything and being more restrained etc. etc. I should just keep my big mouth shut, as I know by now – as do you – that I welcome an austerity plan as well as the Greeks do. I failed in a major way today – not just a little slip up but a colossal u-turn. Though I did return some items that I had ordered recently to alleviate my guilt. I have to say it is a very slippery slope from here – all the way down to an empty wallet for the rest of the year. I have – ta-daaa – discovered the joys of net-a-porter.com.
I have stayed away from it for so long mainly due the large price tags associated with every item on there. MM loves MrPorter.com and is a huge proponent of quality over quantity. It dawned on me the other morning that in September I bought shed loads – most of which I’ll rarely wear and will end up on eBay. For the same price as the three pairs of boots sitting in my closet I could in fact purchase a fabulous pair of Acne Pistols and have some change to boot (no pun intended). So I did. Here they are, and they are winging their way to me as we speak.
Oh joy, oh woe – I have fallen in love with about 20 items on net-a-porter.com today and have a feeling I may need to auction off a kidney soon.
This morning was spent at a teacher conference with my daughter’s teacher – academically she is doing great, socially – darn those genes – she is like me and ‘chatty’ – a very polite way of phrasing it. Two ears, one mouth – let’s try and use them proportionally – hmm – never worked for me.
I dressed to impress in my grey Gap jeans, grey Guess Cardio boots, grey H&M slouch top bought in the UK and my Zara jade jersey jacket. The necklace is one of my new obsessions – I got it from Macy’s and it coordinates perfectly with this outfit. Macy’s by the way has Clinique Bonus Time on offer at the moment – I got a really cute make-up bag there with some fab samples today.
So what would you buy from net-a-porter.com?
