Fabulous vintage Hermes ostrich bag, coming from the States and still not here, can't wait £220
Alessandro del'Aqua silk top £4.70, bought for holiday, it is tiny, but I think I can wear unzipped without anyone realising.
Sunday St Tropez skirt and top £10 each, this is a lovely linen brand found in St Tropez and St Barts, the linen is incredible quality and usually outfits would cost a few hundred euros. Once you feel this stuff there is no going back, although to be fair, they don't really offer designs to keep you warm on a chilly day.
Beautiful brown silk top and skirt, from Coast, £6 for both, haven't worn yet, but will wear skirt into the office.
3 x white shirt £4 each, to wear with jeans as the weather starts to cool.
Rust jump suit from River Island, £9, hopefully will work with Hermes bag.
Rene Caovilla shoes to match the Hermes bag £16.
Grand total (£340 part 1) just under £600!
And yet I genuinely believed that I hadn't bought anything, although in my defense, it seems like a lot of stuff, I only actually spent £100 a month, which I don't think is too bad, but I have no measure of what is 'normal' and what is not. I have friends who haven't bought anything new since about 1995 and others for whom their monthly Harvey Nicks account can run into thousands. Where do you sit? Can anyone tell me what normal actually is?
