Seeing as my situation now means I’ll no longer be doing the what I bought posts (yes, fine, these are financially DIRE straits), I’ll have to settle for doing the what I would buy . . . such as last week’s Marc by Marc lust-have! Today’s edition? Topshop only, and just two items, but man, are they gorgeous items.

I was originally looking for a gorgeous dalmatian-print jacket I saw in the Guardian (I love the Guardian! It’s hilarious and very informative, although I do only read the features parts), but this snake-effect suede bomber is so up my alley it’s unreal. That said, who needs three leather jackets? No one, that’s who.

On the other hand, everyone needs a leather tote with dalmatian trim! Don’t try to argue it like it ain’t true. It is true! I need it. Especially now I have a basket for my bicycle and don’t have to have a bag with a long shoulder strap! Then again, I tried to use the old “but I paid off my credit card” excuse to justify stealing the £120 for this bag from my future self . . . and thievery is never good.

I am writing this post on Friday; ask me if I bought either of them and we’ll see how strong I remained over le weekend!
