After chomping at the bit waiting for the Net-a-Porter sale to start, I have to say the pieces I had my eye on are either not available in my size or not discounted enough to warrant the purchase. I feel a little under-whelmed by the selection and dare I say it a little tight about making a new purchase in these austere times. Maybe I can't be happy shopping after last week's funeral when my dear friend has lost her husband (separated/soon to be divorced/the Children no longer have a no-good father).
This Sonia Rykiel dress cost the same as my first car I bought in 2001, a green metallic Nissan Micra.
It was not the prettiest of cars, had a beige fabric interior and was 3/4th hand. But I loved it and drove around loads. One tank of petrol used to last me a week and it never cost me more than a tenner to fill her up. Ah those were the day's before the 119p per liter charges. It didn't like hills and I used to have my foot to the floor on the gas pedal trying to climb up the hills near Crystal Palace. It was also pretty reliable until I lent it to my brother and he managed to have an accident parking it and ripped the front bumper off. It was never the same after that - RIP.
