|Some of my latest finds - an amazing atomic print skirt, a sparkly lurex number & a rather wonderful gingham dress|
Vintage clothing is draining my bank balance. Sucking the lifeblood that is my pay check.
The more vintage I acquire, the harder I find it to say no to anything!
Why? Why do I have no self-control when it comes to vintage? I can easily contain myself when it comes to repro. Remind myself of my saving goals, smack my hand away from that 'Buy Now' button.
But vintage has this whole other effect on me. I think it's a sickness.
I see something and contact the seller to arrange payment and shipping before I can even think about it. And as exciting as it is getting packages in the mail filled with wonderful new vintage things...I'm meant to be saving for the States!
I think the thing with vintage, for me at least, is that it's not like repro stuff. Not as easily accessible. Not like you can just go back a week or two later and decide to buy then.
Vintage is one off. And when you find something you adore, in your size (a big one for me given my large bust!) I can't bear to say no. Because I just know there is some other lucky lass waiting to pounce on it.
What do I do? How do I stop myself from all this impulse buying? I need help!
