Impulsive Shopper

One word you WOULDN'T use to describe me is rational. I don't tend to think before I do stuff, which has put me in some sticky situations, and I can be really impulsive sometimes. This is visible is my shopping habits, although I've gotten better with time. If I see something I like, I'll buy it. I've gotten more practical over time, but this is how I ended up buying something that can only be described as a wedding dress.

So I literally have no where to wear this dress anytime soon, but I had to have it. I went in to Debenhams and saw it on display so I went to see the price just to humour myself. Imagine my surprise when I realised it had been taken down to a mere £40, with only one left in my size. I grabbed it and went straight to the till. I'm guessing that there'll be somewhere to wear it eventually. I need a really close friend to get married so I can wear it.

And I wore them with my insane new shoes. I love everything about them, from the subtle spikes to the slingback.

Have you made any insane purchases lately.

Wow it is so beautiful. I am the same and I must admit I probably would have bought it too.

This is stunning! It was meant to be yours, time to start dropping hints to friends in long term relationships :)
The shoes are amazing too - love those spikes.
I just bought a wide stripe maxi skirt on a whim, I've got no idea when I'll wear it or what with.

I am the same way :)

Pretty dress! And I can't say I'm the same, actually. I take a LONG TIME to really justify my purchases. But I can see the appeal in impulse buys :)

I used to be a terrible impulse shopper - I've gotten better with time but there is no way that I could have left this dress behind if I found it make down to 40 pounds. It's stunning and it fits you like a glove! I've made a few insane purchases myself recently, including a pair of seriously marked down Pierre Hardy heels, so no judgement here :)

I always DO make insane purchases especially during the sales! That dress is so pretty, at least you have something ready to wear for a special occasion. ;)
