The challenge of seasons...

One of the things that annoys me about shopping online is the difference between seasons. I love love love buying things from overseas - but when it gets to this time of year I start to get a bit irky. I know that's not a real word but it conveys the sense of frustration I feel.

I see amazing things, knowing that if I buy them (who am I kidding - when) it might be another 10 or so months before I can wear them. Some things I can get away with - if they are light, but others you just can't.

Case in point: This divine coat from The White Company in the UK.

It's wool and cashmere and it's divine. Words cannot describe how much I want this coat. Let's just set aside the fact I am still on a shopping ban (or reduction) for the moment and the cost at 395 pounds plus shipping makes it completely prohibitive.

The real kicker for me is that it's starting to smell like spring outside.

That means it getting warmer. Not much call for a wool and cashmere coat in a Sydney Spring. Or a Summer. Or possibly even an Autumn unless it's unseasonably cold. So it will likely be next May before I can wear it.

Unless Mr Kitty takes me to Paris for Christmas. Then I'd wear it every day.

A girl can dream right?


PS: There are lots of other lovely things on The White Company website - they have beautiful layering items and a dress I am very keen on purchasing... Methinks a trip to a store might be in order when I am in London... I have bought from them before over the interwebs and they are excellent. Customer service second to none.

Ooh that is gorgeous! It's a classic so perhaps you could get it anyway and use it next year too? ;)

Oooh - don't tempt me Lorraine!

I agree, it's a classic. I want that dress too, but the postage is just too much :(

The postage is a bit exorbitant but if you buy a few things it does average out a little, and they should refund the VAT!
