I’ve been really good about not splurging lately, even though my natural instinct is and always has been to spend without much restraint (I’m working on getting my finances in order- but more on that later!) Every so often though, there’s an item so special that I just can’t bear to walk away, and Kate Spade’s flamingo collection was just the sort of bait that hooks this pastel fish without fail.
When I spotted this peachy silk top at Shine PR’s Kate Spade shopping event a few weeks ago, it was love at first sight. I practically snatched the last one off the shelf, holding it close to me for an hour while I ate specialty marshmallows and tried to talk myself out of trying it on. Of course the marshmallow plan only lasted so long, and soon enough I was in the fitting room snapping selfies in what had already become my new favourite top. As soon as I slipped it over my head, I knew there was no way it wasn’t coming home with me. Savings and financial responsibilities aside, sometimes you just have to say yes to the flamingo.
Oh and full disclosure: I’ve barely taken it off since. A worthy investment? I think so!
