I haven’t spent money on myself in a while. Simply all the money I can afford to spend has gone on gifts for other people (which is why I was looking for a job). But my mind was also fixated on a denim waistcoat, having got over and moved on, for now, from my winter obsession with a fur gilet. Luckily for my bank balance, this cool concept almost always looks horrible in person, on person.
But the waistcoat I spied on a mannequin was perfect. And it felt so Spring-like, which seemed so apt considering it is March tomorrow and this would be the first non-woolen top I would have bought in what feels like years, but is actually months. It doesn't matter that I have already spent all the money I can afford for the rest of spring on what is essentially the least useful item of clothing possible, because it is an item of clothing which is perfect for spring.
