Does anyone else NOT get excited by new Spring/Summer stock?
Or is it just me? It's cold, windy and icy outside, I just want to wear my winter willies and yet I look at Boden etc and instead of lots of nice late winter/ spring clothes it's all short sleeved t-shirts with a couple of jumpers thrown in for good measure! Winter stock, on the other hand, I love!
Agree with the OP, I don't give a toss about s/s catalogues etc, never find anything I covet. The most I feel is "Well I suppose that might look ok, but I can't be arsed spending actual money to actually get it".
Whereas I actually get quite excited by a/w stuff. Even in the sales.
I live in Scotland though. You never really put away your winter stuff up here.
There's just something so, un-clotheslike about scraps of fabric. I like my clothing substantial - chunky sweaters, socks, coats and boots.
I spend a fortune every autumn, so it's just as well I get so uninspired by spring/summer. How can you compare a fabulous wool coat and stunning leather boots with a T-shirt and something linen for the bottom half? booooooooooringgggggg.
Very well put Grumpy. I just love it when the autumn clothes start to hit the shops whereas I resent spending money on SS clothes. That said, this year I will have to buy a few things to refresh my wardrobe - I've got birthday and Christmas money which, for once isn't burning a hole in my pocket cos there's nothing I really really need or want.
Also get much more excited by beutiful boots and coats.
The only things I really like about shopping for summer are (costume) jewellery as with my scarves and big jumpers I hardly wear any in winter, finding the perfect flip flops, and frivolous nail varnish for my toes!
