The Ultimate Justification

Have you ever noticed that when one is head over heels for an item that is well and truly out of our price range, one will often tussle and toyle with the benefits and features of the item, umming and arring indecisively about its practicality and logistics. 

It goes a little something like this:

 'its such a transeasonal piece, I could wear it in summer with some killer pumps or in winter with a pair of ankle boots and a cropper jacket'

'The colour is quite neutral so I could wear it with almost anything'

'Its one of those pieces you could wear casually during the day AND dressed up with the right accessories at night'

'I could wear it for both of those birthday parties that are coming up and that saves me buying two dressers for both' 

sound familiar? 

Once all pro's, benefits, features and excuses have been considered.. and sales assistance you are no exception to the rule, the ultimate justification is...

I will have it forever....

But the irony of that is, and I can only speak on my own behalf, you don't have it forever.. Lets take a look at some of those purchases I had the same justifications for..




often the ultimate justification comes into play with furs... big ticket items!







need I say more :)

Just some food for thought.. 

We should save ourselves the trouble and just be realistic!

'chances are I will probably get over this piece in a day, a month, a year, after buying it.. but for now.. it will make a killer outfit'

I am selling a few things on ebay I thought you might be interested in. So sad to see them go but am saving whole heartedly for my 8 month trip around the world at the end of the year. All items ending soon.

palatable pastels for spring/summer

'Spring/Summer 2012 pastels are soft and chalky in equal measure. To really rock this trend layer together for added impact, sweetie' (Marie Claire). Designers who have particularly taken a fancy to these delectable pastel fabrics include; Stella McCartney, Chanel, ANCE, Marc Jacobs, Elie Saab and Miu Miu, but I think it's safe to say most will jump on the band wagon come summer.

Cara Delevingne

Ever since the age of 16 I have been obsessed with the dark eye brows and peroxide blonder hair 'look' and tried numerous attempts to tint my eye brows that one shade darker ever visit to the beautician, however no one does it better than Cara Delevingne. She has got that 'girl next door' meets 'mischievous rebellion' look about her. This 5' 9" 20 year old Brit was snapped up by Storm modelling agency in 2009 and never looked back since, with her modelling career seeing her front big campaigns for the likes of Burberry and Chanel. Although she is rumoured to be dating One Direction star Harry Styles, general consensus is WE LOVE HER.

While known for her luscious, pert lips, long blonde hair and sister Poppy, my vote is for her infamous dark eye-brows perched above sea green eyes.
