What is a girl (who is not the least bit interested in the Football) to do on Football Grand Final weekend?
It seems like the whole country is mad about the Football (or footie, as we call in here in Australia) Grand Final weekend. I woke up this morning and got my morning coffee and people in the coffee queue was talking about it. I got to work – yes, I work Saturdays too, it’s the downside of working in real estate : ( – and everyone at work is talking about it. I bumped into a random old chap on the street while getting things out of my car and he struck up a conversation with me on, guess what, the Footie Grand Final. And I am not even in Melbourne where the finals are being played – I am half way across the Australian continent in Perth!
So what is a girl, who is not the least bit interested in the footie (sorry to y’all footie fans – I am just not interested in sports), to do on Grand Final weekend?
Most would think I’d settle for the path of least resistance and join the crowd. But no, I didn’t. I finished work by midday and went shopping instead.
I browsed the racks at my favourite labels Review and Cue, but there wasn’t anything that really caught my attention or screamed out ‘must buy’ at me. I was in one of those shopping moods, you know the sort whereby even though there is nothing that really catches my fancy but I really wanted to buy something, anything. So in the end, after an hour of aimlessly wandering in and out and from one boutique to another, I ended up spending $200 buying a dress which I didn’t really want from Cue and lingerie which I probably won’t wear and have no use for from Bras and Things.
Buyer’s regret hasn’t quite crept in yet, and I was unfulfilled. I suddenly remembered Myer is having a mid-season sale so I decided to make my way to Myer instead. Maybe I’ll find something I like at Myer, I told myself. When I arrived at Myer I was still in one of those shopping moods still, I really wanted to buy something, anything. I settled for a matching set of lingerie: CHLOE & LOLA Rowe Contour Push Up Bra in Navy Blossom Floral (basically cute floral patterns on a dark blue/black background) and matching CHLOE & LOLA Rowe G-string with lace trim.
Having already spent about $250, by now feeling a little broke, I was about to call it a day and leave when I spotted this gorgeous red Karen Millen dress. There is something about this dress that I can’t describe, but I couldn’t quite walk away from it.
Maybe it was the colour, maybe it was the material, maybe it was the fit and the cut, but I thought this was just the sort of gorgeous dress I had been looking for all day! I looked at the price tag: it was on sale and reduced, but still rather pricey. I was beating myself up for buying the dress which I didn’t really want from Cue and lingerie which I probably won’t wear and have no use for from Bras and Things: I should have waited and saved my money so that I could have bought this dress! But enough is enough, I thought. Unless I find myself a rich sugar daddy, I’d have to watch my spending. So reluctantly, I left the dress back on the rack. It’s just one of those unfulfilling shopping days. Sigh.
