January sales are on. I spot a men’s rack with the beautiful sign: “50% off already reduced prices.”
“Hubbie,” I say. “Have a look here, your brand is half price.”
Hubbie glances over.
“Nah. I don’t need any of it. I’m looking for shorts.” Off he goes.
I stand with baby girl. But it’s 50% off?!
Half an hour later, I’m looking at dresses.
“What about this?” I hold it up to him.
“But you just bought a dress.”
I put it back down.
WOMEN’S CLOTHES FACTS OF LIFE
1. You can never have too many dresses.
2. You can never have too many clothes (or shoes, bags, accessories, jewellery…)
3. The previous dress was a going out dress. Now I was looking at everyday casual dresses.
4. I was on a roll. Don’t stop a lucky shopping spree.
I didn’t buy the second dress. But I bought a skirt. And days later, summer shoes and a top.
