Crazy Midnight Spending

ruched bodycon dress

Not even midnight, actually – it’s 2am! I’m still up doing my dissertation (2,000 words to go) but I had a little flick over to to see what was left in the very end of the sales. Stupidly, I sorted the results “from high to low” and ended up buying a dress from Halston Heritage and a pair of shoes with metal snakes curled around the heels! Oh crikey. I’ve got an Outnet order to be returned and also a huge Karl Lagerfeld coat sat on the spare bed – Mr AMR says it looks like a monkey but I really like it. I may post pics and get some opinions!

The ruched dress from Halston Heritage is above – it was still £195 even in the sale. What the hell am I doing? Delirious! Actually, though, depending on how it actually looks on me, I think it could be rather lovely. (That’s possibly the stupidest sentence I’ve ever written.) It’s here on ASOS.

Other thing: House of Harlow court shoes with snakes curling up the heels. Because we all need some of those, don’t we? Goodness. It’s like I’ve been lobotomised. I have a feeling that these are going to look pretty cool with simple jeans and sweater, but let’s see shall we? They are £125 (I know. Don’t.) here.

    I love those shoes! They’re quite different, but that’s what makes them stand out. Loved reading this post – it made me giggle.

    I have under 2500 words to go on my MA as well and can sympathize with your late night writing (and shopping) pain! So far I’ve bought concert tickets and makeup. Hopefully my words will run out before my bank account does!

    Good luck with the dissertation! I did an MA in Creative Writing a year ago and am now working on a PhD. Best decision I ever made! Deadlines are mega stressful, but isn’t it cool just to have to write all the time?! :-) xxx
