Are you liking this Prada dress?? I am and I am now owning it! At this point I am also totally blaming my friend Jo's man (love him as i truly do) (and because i am want to blame anyone other than myself when it comes to over purchasing guilt!!)
I have the man's family do this weekend - a BIG family do - they are italian - there are a lot of them and i feel some outfit pressure it has to be said. I bought my lovely PA, Claire, a fantastic blue/black limited edition nail polish from Chanel a couple of weeks back and it occurred to me a couple of days ago that this would be the perfect polish to my perfect outfit!!
I resolved to pop into Chanel on Saturday whilst wandering past. Had already made what in fashionista terms was a positive pitstop at Roger Vivier which caused such consternation (obviously in man terms it was a long stop) so to keep all happy i put my not-obsessed shopper hat on and went to Hyde Park instead thinking there is always Sunday when i am on my own and no men to hand!
Proceeded on my long trot to Chanel - only to get the polish - had been a good night out - tad hungover
(maybe that too contributed to my lack of resolve) - virtuously determined to just get that polish - well they were shut! And opposite is Prada - dont know what came over me but i was over that road and in that shop in a fashion second!
I was only going to look at the shoes - all sold out in my size thank god! The dress was there in my size and i looooved it on the catwalk - thought it wont fit, it wont suit and it was on my back - suiting and fitting - suiting and fitting amazingly!! I bought it and i still think my friend's man is totally to blame (lol)
As an update i am now borrowing the polish back of Claire, which is what i should have done in the first place (but felt it a little of a cheek) something about hindsight and wonderful thing comes to mind!!
