It is sales time in London and holy mother of god, am I excited over that.
Last month I bought myself a wonderful birthday gift to myself on sale. A long sleeve leather dress. Folks, I have been looking for one of those for ages and while they are around since leather made a comeback 2 years ago....may I just add here that I have been wearing leather since 1999, including to work. I can't tell you guys how often people have touched my skirt in a meeting and looked at me and were all "Is that leather?". Yes, Sherlock, it is and frankly, when you live on the East Coast, there is NOTHING better looking and warmer to wear in the winter and stylish to boot.
I digress. The long sleeve leather dress is not one of those amazing $1,000 ones, but it's real leather, soft leather and it is sexy as hell. Definitely not approved for work as it is also rather snug. ;)
So Sales are on and while they are a far cry from what I used to in the US, I have gotten used to getting excited over two digit prices over three digit prices. I do have good taste.
Tomorrow I have some time, so I will try on these dresses....well, one I already tried on and it is AWESOME but definitely a no go for work I think.....on the flipside, with a jacket, maybe...
The first one, the blue tight delicious one, I am intrigued with. The stripey one and the black one I will just try on for fun and then the black and white a-lineish one, I am really digging too.
In the end, I am unlikely to buy any of them, because I already indulged last month in one dress I bought for myself and a second dress that my mom gave me for my birthday. I am a dress whore. I am not ashamed of it. I do think I am compensating for something, but the hell, I have always done it ;) They are my guilty pleasure.
What are YOUR guilt pleasures? (I do have some others...they all deserve their own post, some of them are free, like.....TELEVISION).
