In the span of 24 hours I made 2 online purchases. Quite unexpected for me as I usually prefer "real life" shopping. However after a string of shitty days, I guess rash decisions were to be expected and better throw a bit of money away than dealing with the consequences of telling the boss to fuck off.
First impulse purchase, a(nother) denim jacket. I've been quite obsessed with denim outerwear lately - will do a post on that later.
It's quite rare that I browse the Topshop site, I don't think I'm in their demo anymore, the models look so so young and not having the possibility to physically see nor try most of the items make me rule it out of my online shopping sightings.
But not yesterday and when I saw that jacket, sporadic yet not so random thoughts collided transcripted below:
Wow!! It looks like that Isabel Marant jacket I've been crushing on since last year (with all the right details: patchwork, raw dark denim, kimono, quilted, pockets) + useful + functional (for mid-season) = Oh my God, oh my god, oh la la, it's so cool, I want it right now!!!
Hyperventilated a bit in the process especially when I realized my size was still available and I could get it. Quickly looked at the general conditions and made my first ever Topshop online purchase.
Fingers crossed it will be as good as I'm dreaming it.
As for my second grab: I've been crushing on these lace-up leather espadrilles for the past month. The shape is very original yet understated, reminds me of something Lemaire would do or maybe did hence why I have this vague déjà-vu feeling.
Problem is my size sold out fast and ever since I've been stalking the website and all 3 Paris stores to no avail. Even questionned the unhelpful client service.
Today a 37 popped out and even though it is not my size, I was overjoyed and bought them anyway... Now I'm just praying HARD that my
37,5 38 will fit in... Haha!
& Other stories
Will keep you posted when I receive both items. Hoping that images aren't deceiving and that reality will match my own preconceived ideas of what these things should look and feel like...
Hum, I guess I'm not the only one resorting to comfort shopping, what were your recent impulse purchases?
