Budget Cuts

For those who love Alber Elbaz – but are working on a budget – news of Lanvin’s collaboration with H&M was akin to having Christmas arrive a month early.

I include myself very much in this statement.

By self-appointment, Napoleon has become our household Chancellor and is imposing budget cuts with the kind of ruthless zeal unbecoming for even a Conservative-led government.

It can only spell bad things for my wardrobe.

Having long wanted a Louis Vuitton leopard-print Stephen Sprouse scarf, I am beginning to realise that it may be a dream – forever, hopelessly – beyond financial reach.

This Diane von Furstenberg Kenley scarf would make a poor cousin beautiful substitute, but – having traipsed my well-shod ne’er to be replaced Louboutin heels around London – every store seems to have exhausted their stock.


1. Damn you other ladies with good taste and less slow-off-the-mark organisational skills; and

2. Has anyone seen this scarf – in the grey colourway – on their shopping travels?

    But I love your writing! Haha, I don’t know, I just really enjoyed reading your post.

  3. That ruins all my shopping dreams…so many times I’ve found the perfect perfect item – only to find it’s “not in stock” anywhere on the planet x

  4. And now it is I who have discovered your blog:)
    Thanks for stopping in…
    So glad you enjoyed..that is the whole point, I suppose!

    I can TOTALLY relate to this post…hubby bought me calfskin leopard Christian Louboutin Booties (DIE) for xmas and they are a size too small…went for the exchange and NOT AVAILABLE! So upset, although it won’t be too torturous to find a new pair:)
