It was my birthday yesterday, and one of my gift requests was 'some vouchers, and some time to go shopping, unimpeded by toddler son'.
I was expecting a £50 Dotty P voucher or something. But no, my darling DP got me a £250 Selfridges gift card! I'm going into the London mega shop on Wednesday. Having a rater delicious dilemma about what to buy.
I'm 45, 5'8", 12-14, flabbier than I'd like to be but a pear-y hourglass. My wardrobe is full of things I liked five years ago when I last had money, plus cheap bits of tat I've bought in the past year.
So, do I go to the cheap concessions and buy loads of new stuff, or just a few 'key pieces'? If so, what? I have a couple of posh-ish dos coming up, so could do with a nice frock, a little bit Anglomania, kind of thing, but with sleeves and not showing too much leg - I have hideous fat knees.
I won a Selfridges card for the same amount and decided to put it towards a Mulberry handbag as thought that would last me forever....I still can't bring myself to buy super expensive clothes as I always manage to wreck them.
