This is almost compensated for, however, by the excitement of parcels arriving and being unwrapped. Who needs Christmas when you have a sale and a laptop? Goodies can arrive all year long :-)
Today was one such day with a couple of arrivals.
One was from net-a-porter - my Elle Macpherson undies. They are keepers I'm happy to report, and this is rare in the case of online bra orders I find - especially a brand you are unfamiliar with. Elle Macpherson seems to be true to size, should anyone else be wondering.
The other arrival was some wedge boots from River Island, of all places.
I can't quite remember why I went to the RI website, ( it may have been to see if the Molly coated jeggings had been reduced - they were not as far as I recall...) but it certainly wasn't to look for boots. I can't ever remember seeing, or certainly ever inspecting closely, a shoe section there. These boots caught my eye though - reduced form £45 to £15. It would have been rude not to take a punt.
NB they are described as 'silver' on the RI website, but are certainly not silver - more of a pewter / bronze shade I'd say. I am happy about this though, as I was doubtful about silver - worried about looking like some kind of bizarre Barbarella wannabe. I've had a look on the website for a link, but they seem to have disappeared so maybe have sold out. (If anyone is interested let me know and i'll supply the product code, there may be some available in stores.)
|What do you think readers...? 2nd opinions needed|
I wore them with an old pair of Topshop short biker boots from a couple of years ago which are still going strong. I like how the leg warmers bridge the gap between boots which can sometimes feel a difficult length - neither short nor long (on me at any rate). Hopefully a wise buy and will enable me to wear the boots more!
Finally, one more acquisition which (on reflection) could maybe have been left in favour of daywear, but hey-ho. It's (a) pretty and (b) warm - White Company long sleeved empire lace detail nightdress. 30% off.
