|Louche Julita-Country Dress: Joy|
|Shoes: New Look|
I'd bought some dresses last week, both of which I'd fancied for a while and would have probably bought them anyway, but I was tempted to order them then due to some Black Friday promotions which the sites had on. I guess, although they were expensive-ish, I saved some money with the codes, and really liked them beforehand anyway, so they can be considered bargains? Good buys?
So is something only a good deal when you would have bought it at a higher price anyway? I looked down at my armful of half-price "statement" necklaces and a sequin bra and pants (which I already have a very similar set of) and thought: wouldn't I be better off spending the £40 or so I'd have spent on these things, on something I really actually want, rather than just buying cheap things for the sake of it?!"
I can see how it makes more sense to spend a little more on one dress which fits properly, is a flattering shape and the right length for me, rather than going mental in Primark in the £5-dress section because, you know, £5.
So, for now, I'm going to try and focus on wearing some of the things I've bought because I love, or I already owned and love, and try to be more sensible with my spends in future. Let's just hope it lasts through the January sales, eh?
Am I the only one who does this? Stocks up on things I'll never wear because they're "cheap"?
