Naughty girl!

So I did a naughty thing today. I popped out at lunchtime to buy my lunch, and as I was making my way to M&S, I passed Monsoon. With a sale. I thought "I'll just pop in and see if there's anything decent", knowing full well that I detest sales and I would probably walk in and walk right back out again because of the mess and the crowds.

But!

The second I walked in, my eyes fell on this dress (edited with photo taken tonight). Only one left, and it just happened to be in my size. And it's so pretty! I decided to try it on for the hell of it, knowing that I don't usually look good in dresses.

Well!

This one is very flattering! I look so pretty in it! And for me to say that about myself is high praise indeed!

So I bought it! Yay! But no. I have absolutely no reason to buy it. I have nothing to wear it to. No weddings, no christenings, nothing! Last year I had these events coming out of my ears, but this year, zilch. I shouldn't have bought it.

But it was half price! It would have been rude not to.

I know what you mean about having to buy it though. I bought a dress that I had no where to wear and never, ever would. My husband and I later planned a trip to Vegas so that I could wear it. That ended up being one very expensive dress in the end!

I think it was your responsibility to buy it. It was the only one left! In your size and everything!

Now you should come and visit me and I'll throw you a party so you can wear it.

You had to buy it - pretty dress, in your size, half off and makes you look wonderful?

Damn straight it would have been rude to leave it!

(and the picture's gone now :-( )

I'm sure there will be some sort of party or other sooner or later for you to take it out and show it off, pretty Eileen. [girlkissers]

Half price? That is almost FREE!!

I agree.

Pretty dress! Yay!

Amanda said...

Ooooh! You'll just have to invent an excuse to wear it.

Lolly said...

Pretty dress? Last one? Your size? HALF off?

You were TOTALLY meant to have that dress.

That is a completely Guilt-Free transaction. Yes. *nods*

Yes, you should have bought it. We will make an occasion if we have to! ;)

And talking to my friend DanDan via email at work today, she said SHE found a dress in Monsoon too! Bottle blue, strapless and enhances her "assets" [evil]. Also half off!

So that's 2 for 2 so far, maybe I should take a look ;-)

She's having a flatwarming/celebrating moving to London party this weekend, so she's wearing the dress to that. Maybe you need a housewarming, you could dress up!

First time commenter....

I recently purchased a Monsoon dress of Ebay. Brand new, £60 in shop, but only £20 off ebay.

The moral of this tale is that Monsoon dresses were made to make us look pretty and to be bought, whatever the reason.

P.S. Sometimes I like to dress up just to sit around and watch telly. Only if no one else is in mind. But shhh! Don't tell anyone!
