Today you’re looking at two impulse buys at opposite ends of the impulse buy spectrum.
The first is a hot pink linen jacket that I saw in a shop window as I dashed past en-route (late, as usual) to a business appointment.
I knew I had to have it despite price (reasonably prohibitive for me, at the time) and definitely despite the fact I didn’t need yet another jacket.
In fact I was so terrified that it would be gone by the time I got out of my wretched appointment (nobody knows better than I how quickly the larger sizes sell out) that I ran in, tried it on in the racks then fronted up at the register all watch-checking and fingernail-tapping impatience.
Didn’t regret it, either.
I usually try not to impulse buy. I have a lot of padding in my wardrobe, and it’s easy to forget that I already have three red cardigans when I’m in a shop, and oh bliss, the red cardigan that I saw through the window actually fits!
That said, sometimes it’s difficult to say “no”.
F’rinstance. The second impulse buy that you’re looking at is a Basque tulip skirt that I bought from Myer last week. I have several black skirts already, and the one was actually a size too big, but it was down from $100 to $16. Who’s gonna say no to a nice black skirt for $16?? No-one. Especially not me.
And I don’t regret that either.
What have you impulse bought, lately?
