I think of myself as someone who carefully contemplates my purchases. I see something, it starts to grow on me, and I think about how it will fit into my wardrobe/home/life until I’m positive it needs to be there.* The upside of this is that I now favour quality over quantity, and have a carefully considered wardrobe where everything works together. The downside of course being that sometimes I fall for things that are so highly sought after that by the time i’ve realised I need it in my life, it’s often completely sold out.
I thus have a tendency to obsess over said items and hunt them down until I find them (sometimes this can take years, but I refuse to give up until it’s mine). And because I choose things because I love them and I think they say a little something about me, I don’t mind that they’re often a season or two old by the time they come to me.
These amaaazing Coco Chanel-esque platforms have been on my wishlist since pondering them last December. It’s taken a while, but they’re finally mine – and aren’t they beauties? Plus, they elevate me to 6 foot.** I have to say, the world looks different up there as a tall person (impostor or otherwise)!
As they say, the higher the heel, the closer to heaven.
Are you a considered or impulsive shopper? And I’m curious, does anyone else have long wishlists of things they won’t stop hunting for until they get them?
Love, Miss B xx
* a habit which took me some time to hone – I used to buy things for a quick thrill or because they were on sale. Because I buy far less these days, it means I can purchase Chanel and Sass & Bide without spending a penny more than frequent blowouts in cheaper stores.
** which the Clever Boyfriend is, understandably, somewhat disturbed by – he likes that I’m generally smaller than him
