I’ve got to be honest, I’m not feeling the love for the shops, or clothes, at the moment which is so unheard of for me that it must mean that I’ve been taken over by an alien. I’ve trawled my usual favourite sites and I’m feeling distinctly uninspired. In fact I even resorted to reading the “Runner’s World” website and an article on tapering before a big race. That’s how bad things are.
The majority of the new season’s stock looks exactly the same as that from the last two seasons – a bit drab, a bit loose, very comfortable (not that I’m knocking that) but nothing that makes me sit up and go “Yes, I will happily do whatever it takes to get my cheeky little mitts on one of those.” The joy can come just from thinking about such things as much as owning them. And I miss it!
Now in some ways this is good because it makes it easier to stick to my policy of wearing what I own already. On the other hand I feel bereft. Like a part of my soul is missing. I’ve always said that I would hate to win the lottery. Where’s the fun in life in being able to buy every thing that you want? Nope, a little retail lust goes a long way – even a little £5 retail lust can go a long way. And I’m hoping that one day very soon – Tuesday would do – it will return.
Until then I am going to share this outfit with you – a Jesire (anyone remember them? I really liked them until they went under) leopard print grey jumper, Cos grey jeans, Zara boots and a Miss Selfridge fur scarf. Cosy, comfy and arguably a bit drab and a bit loose. Oooops! But at least there’s nothing better to tempt me. Well, not for now anyway…..
