Waiting for a friend in the town centre a couple of weeks ago I spotted this dress reduced to £5 in a small boutique window. After going in to inspect it I had a mini argument with myself:
Head: Do I really need another maxi dress?
Heart: Of course you do, you wear one nearly every day of your life.
Head: It's modern, everyone and their mother's going to have one
Heart: It's stylish, have you seen anyone else wearing it?
Head: It's going to be acrylic and feel cheap and nasty...........
Heart: No, it's actually 65% cotton
Head: Black makes me look like a goth.
Heart:You don't know what you'll look like till you've tried it on
Head: Actually it does look surprisingly nice.............
Result! A £5 frock that got lots of compliments when I wore it to town today. Have I seen anyone else in the same dress? No. Note to self, stop being such a snob.
We've got a cheapo night in this evening, home-made spicy beanburgers and Cuba Libres made from the last of Jon's birthday rum. There's a few films we've recorded from the TV so we'll watch one later.
