I’m rewarding myself with posting a bit of fluff, because it’s been that kind of a week, and my last post was pretty… well, let’s not dwell on that.
Yesterday I indulged in a bit of window shopping. Very bad idea. I can justify having to buy (another) pair of jeans, but the rest of my wants list is purely just from my need for retail therapy, an effort to look presentable, and a wish to not wear half my wardrobe to avoid freezing to death this winter – stuff I can do without, but will be nice to have…
However, I need to replace my car’s two front tyres, one of the headlights is dead (and since this seems to happen often I’m thinking of stockpiling on bulbs), and the USB adapter I use to charge my phone when driving (or my iPod when need be) has given up the ghost. I wouldn’t mind getting an adapter with multiple ports, but that’s veering onto want again, more than need.
The want list is of course longer than the need list. I absolutely LOVE the gypsy coat by Sies!Isabelle and the swishy circle skirt from Rubicon (images from their respective Facebook pages; items available at the SAFW capsule in Edgars Melrose Arch). And how can a girl get through winter without a pair of kick-ass boots? I have a couple bottles of perfume, most I keep for special occasions, but my favourite every day fragrance is CK One – I started wearing this while working at a pharmacy and the staff discount came in handy 🙂 I might actually get a couple pairs of hoop earrings; it is my favourite style and goes with everything. And even though MAC’s Plush Lash isn’t your usual R90 mascara, I can get a good couple months’ use from a tube (particularly if I stick to makeup-free Fridays).
But when the end of the month rolls around I will be spending one Saturday morning in a cold tyre warehousse/workshop and being all grown-up/responsible.
What’s on your lust-list at the moment?
