To See, or Not to See...

Written by Helen Hackwell on Wednesday, 03 November 2010.

Alongside writing my own blog, one of my favourite pastimes is reading other people’s blogs. My ‘it’ blog of the moment is MyFashDiary.com, written by the ever-so-stylish Tala Samman. This is a girl who was born with style-icon DNA, her mother Lina Samman is the face of Nina Ricci in the Middle East, so it’s clear she knows what she’s talking about.

I was browsing during lunch yesterday and spotted her post featuring her outfit picks from theOutnet’s party pieces collection. I was instantly drawn to the gold See by Chloe skirt she was wearing in one of her outfit photos. A couple of clicks later I arrived on theOutnet.com, not concerned with spending loads of money as there is no way they would have it in my size... but of course they did... eeekk

I can’t explain what happened next, it was an out-of-body experience, think Sophie Kinsella’s shopaholic character Becky Bloomwood. One minute I was quietly browsing the web and enjoying my lunch, the next thing I know I’m pulling out my credit card and entering my details into theOutnet’s payment window. Due to a fault with the website I actually managed to order the skirt three times and had to organise cancelling the two I didn’t want! But the long-term result is the same; my fabulous new skirt is winging its way to me (in 1-2 working days) and I can’t wait to try it on!

I haven’t decided what to wear it with as yet, but I love the grey t-shirt Tala has on with it, so I might try to find something similar. Another purchase required... what a shame :)
