I like the look of white but I don't think it's a good color for items that should last. At least not for me
: Congrats on selling the books and getting the money... Hm, the question with sizes is always very tough when online shopping. I prefer buying my things at net-a-porter cause they give you all the important measurements. That's something clearly lacking on many other pages. So I think the only thing you can do is give it a try. I'd probably buy size 8 if that's your usual size.
Buying expensive pieces
: I know how it hurts to buy an expensive piece you have saved up for. So much money on one piece... It happened when I bought my Burberry Trench last year. It was so tempting to spend all the money on three more exciting pieces like blouses etc. Truth is: It was probably my best buy in 2011. That plus the expensive winter jacket I bought in December. These are the items that make everything else work... Like a bag or a great pair of shoes. However, if the Acne Pistols are really what you want and need, only you can decide.
: I actually went ahead and ordered the shoes I wrote you about. They were low stock and somehow I just wanted to take the risk. I mean, I'll be 33 this year, maybe a little bit of cuteness can still do. I hope
We'll see how they are when they get here.
: Cute bikini!
I have no problems with white. I have a white shirt and a white dress/skirt, both has survived so far! I spilled a berry on the shirt at one point, but I was able to clean it. The key is for everything white to be machinewashable, I think
Which gives me a problem since I would love to own a white, short sleeve silkblouse, but for some reason I always spill when I'm wearing silk.
I think I'll go for the 8. It seems more right to me. Just hope it fits since it will be redicoulously expensive to return it.
It's not that I don't think the pistols are for me. I've seen a lot of similar boots, and they just don't speak to me in the same way. I think the problem is that now when I've finally got the money I hate to see all my savings go. It would be different if I knew I definetely would have the same amount again in a couple of months - but I don't. Anyhow, it is not a problem anymore since there's funds for both. Then I can find the money for a blouse or to later on in the season. Jeans can wait for fall, if I don't have the money before - I also need to find the perfect ones first.
Still, I was thinking a little bit about waiting with the shoes untill I get some extra income. I am looking for a job ATM. Just seems silly, since I should buy the shoes soon. If I don't, I might as well wait for fall, because hopefully I will not have much use of them during the summer.
What shoes did you buy?
