Almost every day, some email now drops into my inbox about some sale that grabs my attention. So far, two pairs of coveted shoes have been marked down to just over $100 and I saw a coat on Gilt's 90% sale that I like a lot (even though it is nearer 75% off). I'm holding back for the time being. I have 11 coats of varying descriptions although this one would be a nice addition--it isn't like anything else I have and I know I'd wear it. But wouldn't I just wear one of the other ones instead? Why do coats always speak to me like this? I know NYC requires coats for 9 months or so but it's more than that--the image that a coat gives of being well put together, the warmth it provides and the way it seems like something more permanent than a cardigan, dress or shoes which will ultimately wear out.
As for the sandals, I need a pair of highish ones for summer events. My Miu Miu silver sandals turned yellow in places and are too high for anything other than real parties. I need something that is dressy but not too much. The Comey Chadwicks and the A Detacher Bellows are both on sale. Should I bite or should I just let them pass. And if I select a pair, which one to go for?
