I can be a bit of an impulse shopper. No surprise to people here, I would think.
Case in point - my baby has way too many clothes and she isn't even here yet. She will be a fashionista before she knows what the word actually means. We're not even 100% certain she's a she (the scan said she was but scans have been wrong before).
Today was an exercise in impulse shopping for me - I bought something in my pre-pregnancy size from Leona Edmiston without even trying it on. I tried on a similar dress last summer (slightly different neckline) but it was on sale... And I liked it at the time but they didn't have the right colour (black)....
I was in town - Mr K was having his hair cut and I was at a loose end and had already been to Myers, Haighs and tried on very expensive jewellery....
So I bought it. Reduced from $345 to $195. In black, of course. Without trying it on because nothing goes over Le Bump right now and I want to wear it after I am pregnant. I just have to have faith that it will fit. It's also available in denim (light cornflower blue), navy and a stunning violet/fuchsia pink colour. The style is called Peony.
I now just have to get back to my pre-pregnancy size. First step, get the baby out (starting to get to overit.com people - it's a popular destination for very pregnant ladies apparently) and lose all the fluid I am retaining. Feet like watermelons, peeps. Watermelons.
