Made the mistake of spraying myself liberally with Tom Ford 'Neroli Portofino' in a department store yesterday.

Oh. My.

What's top of your 'really really want it but can't justify the price tag' list?

I'd like a pair of louboutin shoes but oh says too expensive. I'd probably be to afraid to wear them incase I scuffed the heals.hmm

A designer handbag like a Chanel. I probably could afford one if I saved for a couple of years, but I'd be too scared to use it.

I want a medium mulberry lily in oak. £900 though so not affordable!

welshgirlcharlotte Tue 13-Sep-16 07:34:21

Definitely a Chanel handbag - but agree, I'd be too scared to even take it out!

Haircut and styled by a top London stylist

I just saw this coat on another thread. Warm, waterproof, flattering, smart, hood. It ticks every box with the tiny drawback that it costs SIX. HUNDRED. And NINETY FIVE. POUNDS!

I'd love a gastric band but can't justify it when I could just diet lol. But would love love love a mulberry handbag

David, I saw that coat and had an identical reaction: lust, followed by 'Fuck! shock'

Some Cutler and Gross frames that I saw some the other week. Can't stop thinking about them. They may not count for this thread though as I'm chanting 'cost per wear, Flo' as I type.

Dior watch

Boodles necklace and the matching bracelet would be good too grin. Will. Never. Happen.

It was the Zelens Anti-oxidant Serum, but I bought it last week shock blush Now it would be some Irregular Choice shoes.

A YSL handbag's nearly £2000 so doubt il ever get it.
It is very beautiful tho or a Chanel handbag.

Cartier watch! Never ever going to happen! What's the Zelens like? Worth the money?

TooTweeOrNotTooTwee Tue 13-Sep-16 08:18:28

Diamond earrings.. Really sparkly ones!

A home that isn't rented, to be honest. I have pinterest boards prepped for exactly how I'd do up each kind of property. One day.

In terms of one item to wear, I'd just like a full spree in The Kooples. A couple of work suits, jeans, shirts, leather jacket - the lot! Yes please.

Ps buy a copy of your tom ford perfume from perfume parlour.
I have black orchid and it is exactly the same

I'd love a mulberry bag too and tbh I could afford one but I can't bring myself to spend that amount on a bag when it comes down to it.

CreamTeaFor4 Tue 13-Sep-16 08:35:30

A Chanel suit and bags... I'm over 40 and have somehow picked up the fantasy idea that I should own and wear a Chanel suit at this stage of my life... my budget is strictly high street!

Limited edition Doc Martens sad

(I might he able to afford them one day)

Ah, one thing is can't justify the price tag and the other is plain straight can't afford.

As lust but can't afford (and can't justify the rental price tag) is a top end fast car. Haven't decided which model yet. smile

Really can't be arsed about clothes, bags or jewellery enough.

As in can't justify the price tag, but could afford if I wanted to spend it rather than save for more important things, a round the world trip to a few selected places.

A Frogeye Sprite. Fully restored about £20k.
