Rather than head straight home I decided to check out the current Barneys warehouse sale, where I spent a lot of time reciting my Couture Mantra (You want me to wear what? And pay how much for the privilege?) under my breath as I flipped through the racks. After much dithering I spent $300 I couldn’t really afford on a baby blue jacket from Liquid and a white-and-green jacket and skirt set from Barneys’ own line.
So, much belt-tightening to come. Luckily I’ve just borrowed a load of the Granada Sherlock Holmes DVDs starring Jeremy Brett from the library, so it’s not like I was planning to go out in the evenings anyway.
