Now let’s get this one out of the way, first and foremost.
I really don’t like the use of the word “haul” in relation to shopping. Especially clothes shopping.
It goes against all I believe in terms of the environment, fair labour and the imbalance of world economies.
So what have I done?
I’ve got myself a haul. A Monsoon Haul.
It started when I was hunting for a July wedding dress. The Photographer reminded me that every single thing I’ve ever bought from Monsoon I’ve worn ad infinitum over the years.
So of course I bought a dress from Monsoon. Job done.
You can see the dress by clicking
Right, dress for wedding, done ✅.
But then it gets messy.
Let’s see what transpired.
I gave the whole Monsoon thing much thought.
Oh TP was so good right about Monsoon pieces, I do wear them on repeat and through the years.
So he planted that seed in my mind, and that seed unfortunately germinated during a very dangerously time - their summer sale.
And even more unfortunately Monsoon runs occasional seemingly random 70% off periods during the sales.
And even worse news still, I’m on their mailing list and they tell me when these rock bottom prices are available, so I know when to pounce.
Yup, a perfect storm.
So let’s check out the damage.
Nice drape and length.
These two Monsoon pieces are going to be wardrobe workhorses, and that’s a fact.
Right, that’s a skirt and shirt under my belt.
Did I stop at that? Did I rest on my laurels? Nah!!!
Not a lot!
So ladies, this is my accidental Monsoon haul. And all because TP reminded me (many weeks ago) how well my previous buys from that brand have fared.
And thus I am exonerated. This sales spend has absolutelyNOTHING to do with me. I didn’t intend to shop. TP subliminally planted the shopping seed, did he not?
Did he not light the touch paper and then retreat out of harms way whilst I exploded on to the sales scene and did all that shopping damage?
Help me out here guys!
Have you accidentally shopped the summer sales?
And do you have a favoured or site for your sales shops?
Do you shop from Monsoon?
A la perchoine,
P.s. Oh dear, it doesn’t end there - THIS accidentally happened too …
