I don't have £150 to spend on a dress...

I don't have £150 to spend on a dress...

If I keep telling myself this then maybe I'll stop fantasising about the one on the left. Two weeks ago, when we had a heatwave and I realised I had nothing to wear but an old pair of linen trousers with a tea stain on one leg, I spent all day looking in every shop in town for a dress like this one. It's exactly what I was dreaming of and couldn't find.

I will comfort myself with the knowledge that the British summer is over. This year it stretched over a whole week. Last year, if my memory serves me, it fell on a Tuesday. A Tuesday three months prior to our outdoors, August wedding. Not that I'm still pissed off about that. Honestly.
