Wishing & Hoping. Quick Update.

Monday, 9 July 2012
Okay, this is how it stands.

  • Wilpshire Red Cardigan from Aubin & Wills.  Officially sold out again. It came back into stock, I had it in my basket .... but I did not click the pay button because I do not wear red cardigans.  How sensible was I?  Gone! 

  • Plumo Shadow Bag.  It came. I loved it. But it was too big.  I sent it back. Gone.

  • MHL Jumper from Net a Porter.  I confess to ordering it. I disliked it on sight.  The colour was yack. The hem was horrid.  Gone.

  • Sam Edelman Trina Sandals.  I can't find them in my size.  It was not meant to be.  I've moved on.  Gone.

  • Jigsaw Poppy Boots.  Still hanging on.  Still wishing and hoping ......

...... and I have a new wishlist that I've just started.  I think I will carry the Jigsaw boots on to that list instead.  Along with these .......

I know, I know ... I feel another caveat coming on to my shopping mantra of nothing over £200!


  1. You poor thing! I haven't bothered with the sales. I was eyeing a few Burberry Brit raincoats but they sold out within the first 2 days. I wanted to stock up on mariniere tops but they're not on sale. I've given up.

    As for the Jenny boots, you know I'm going to say get them right?? You'll get tons of wear out of them.

    1. It's not that bad - it's kind of cathartic. Shame about the raincoats but I see you are now the proud owner of a beautiful Kady jacket. It's not all bad!

      And yes, your friend Mandi was to blame when she went hollering about new IM stock coming into Matches and I thought I would take a nosey. These are a perfect boot for me and my lifestyle. Fab for the school run too!

    1. And you're just as naughty but I love the devilish encouragement ;o)

  3. On a cost per wear basis they will probably turn out to be a fabulous buy! I would prefer to spend my money on boots now as well, rather than waste any more on sandals or light shoes!

    1. I totally agree. I don't begrudge spending on quality footwear and accessories as they tend to stand the test of time and like you say, cost per wear ratio is looking good for these!
