It’s amazing the way us women will justify spending money when we really know we shouldn’t. That Mulberry bag you see right there? Well that was justified as a “Well done me” present when I landed my job after University. The make up on my face? With my skin improving day by day thanks to my treatment I felt I deserved some expensive products seeing as I now enjoy tackling my face in the mornings and that coat, the coat was justified following a last minute decision to spend our Saturday embracing our inner children at Thorpe Park. I mean obviously I had no coat to wear (well, none that I deemed suitable) and if I’m going to spend £80, I might as well spend £180 no?
In all honesty British heritage brands hold a special little place in my heart, even to the point that my highest grade achieved at University was a study on the success of British heritage branding, see I’m justifying again. But I had wanted to add a Babour to my wardrobe for some time and even with my little pep talk to myself before entering John Lewis in Milton Keynes about how I was merely trying it on for size, out I walked with a very empty bank account. Ah well, I’ll try harder next time.
