Just a very quick post as the sales have started and I’d squirreled away some money to spend.
I got hyper-excited because Orla Kiely had put this dress into their sale section under the pre-season banner, with quite a lot off the original price, I even put it in my ‘basket’ but then thought, no, I don’t need any more OK dresses, I’ve been collecting them for years and lovely though they are, I tend to save them for best (they are often silk and need dry cleaning) so they don’t get worn often and in complete truth Orla Kiely is out of my price range these days, even in the sale section (I should add, I have pretty much only ever bought sale items).
Instead I went for this pretty cotton number from Boden, and it works well, it’s light and easy to wear and has enough of a vintage vibe to keep me happy.
In fact I am so pleased, I’ve also ordered this version (both 40% off at the mo).
Finally, I somehow found myself buying this mustard frock by Mary Portas from the House of Fraser sale. I know her things are comfortable and often very flattering so it should be a winner and hopefully I’ll got loads of wear out of it.
Done. There will be no more shopping for a good while for me now 🙂
