I think it's love, but it's most definitely lust...

I don't know about you lot but I subscribe to a stupid number of emails, for all sorts of places and things; everything from the national lottery to Starbucks, and from publishers to retailers. And these emails always seem to pop into my inbox at the same times - either early in the morning or on a Thursday and a Friday. Now I work in marketing so I understand where this logic comes from, but with my normal non-marketing hat on it does my head in. I don't have time to open and read all 30 emails that come in overnight, so I invariably delete all those that don't grab me straight-away. Sorry fellow marketeers but unless your copy line is genius I'm not clicking open. Anyway, back to the point of this post as surprisingly I'm not meant to be discussing the merits of subject lines, honest! It's actually all about my current lust for all the clothes that Oliver Bonas sell, I'm basically in total love with it all.

I came to this realisation when their email (hence the randow email waffle above!) was the only one I clicked on this morning as the heading was We think you'll love this dress.... I, in fact, didn't love their dress as a floor length maxi dress with tassles is very not me, but I did love everything else in the email and now I'm trying to stop myself from clicking BUY on all of the below items. 

Someone please help me. I feel like I need all these items and that desire is made worse by the fact that I haven't bought any clothes since last year - apart from three staple items and let's be honest staple items don't give you that shopping fix you sometimes need. (Hopefully this isn't making me sound like I need to attend Shoppers Anonymous, I'm honestly not that bad). Just looking at these lovely things has made my fingers all twitchy and I know my life will be enriched by owning at least two or three of these pretty things. I'm currently headed towards the chevron dress and the chambray shirt, but I fear all six items might eventually be purchased. Is that a bad thing do you think? I suppose at least I'd be set for a few months of outfits...

What about you are you being called by any pretty clothes that you just need right now? Share the links below I'd love to hear more and who knows, maybe I'll add them to my list!
