Dear Finery London,
Look, we’re going to have to break off our relationship. I’m sorry but we just can’t go on like this. It’s not you, you’ve been wonderful, too wonderful in fact, it’s all my fault, I just can’t resist reading your emails and nipping onto your site at every available moment. And it’s breaking my bank balance.
After years of lonely searching for the perfect relationship with someone who understood my grown up styling needs and appreciated my quirky love of fabrics and off beat colours, we found each other and embarked on a madly passionate spending spree.It left me giddy with the feeling that I could never get enough of your fabulous product and the heady buying of satin T shirts, lurex sparkle knitwear and the prettiest sundresses cut to flatter my less-than-flat tummy.
But it’s all getting too much, things are getting out of hand. I thought I was in control, able to resist your charming photos and reasonable prices. But then along came your autumn launch email and I find I’m spending again. Soon all I’ll be able to think about will be when the next drop of gorgeous clothing will arrive and that’s just not a healthy way to be, is it? Before we know it Anne Robinson will be interviewing me for another round of Britain’s Spending Secrets on BBC2, and I’ll be shown up for the Finery-horder that I’m fast becoming.
I mean, how can I turn down the perfect blush-pink jersey T shirt top (15.00) that could go with all my navy blue (and you know how I love that colour) or the new and utterly charming embroidered Myron organza shirt in ochre that is so well priced at £65.00. And the shoes (£60.00)...the shoes!
You know I have no will power, I sometimes wonder if you’re doing it on purpose, how else can you explain the Ivy embroidered shirt dress (£129.00…..you know full well I’ve been planning party outfits after all those Christmas in July events…)or the amazing Embleton leather coat? (£295.00) I mean, I didn’t even realise I liked leather coats until you showed me this one!
So lets’s just quit while we’re still friends, before everyone notices how much time we’re spending together and I get made bankrupt. We’ve made some lovely outfits, let’s just hold onto those memories and move on with our lives,
Right after I’ve bought the Olive satin top (£35.00) that’s the same as the navy one I bought (and wore to death) this summer. Just one more, can’t hurt, can it?
