I had chosen four things (pieces sounds so pretentious) I wanted to buy. I kinda mistook what they meant when they said 'customers are allowed to buy a piece from each section of the collection'. I thought it was either one piece of clothing, shoe or accessory. Only later on did I discover it meant one size and no multiple buys of an item!
|1) Dot dot dress|
I turly fell in love with this dress. My heart was racing when I first saw this picture
2) Halter neck polka dot dressLooks nice too. Maybe look enough will eventually want it haha.
3) Silk scarf
4) Leather bag
1) Flower necklace as worn in the first picture
2) Platform leather sandellettes as worn in the third picture
We had to also "queue" online. I managed to put the Blue Dot Dot Dress and silk scarf in my Online Basket but I couldn't checkout on my iPhone! So stressful! By the time mum got back online, the dress, scarf and necklace was gone.
So I headed to Westfield during break time and just missed the "Admittance Band" by one person. There were the pink and White bands queueing before the public could start queueing to get it.
|A section closed off for the Marni collection between 9am-1pm for access to only those with bands|
I went in without a band just before 1pm and after my group, they opened the gates for a free-for-all
When I got in, I made a beeline for the last yellow silk scarf.

Contemplating returning it
|I can't seem to make the back work like a beautiful pattern|
I do love the print a lot though

That was until I saw these two middle aged women taking hold of the maxi dress from a hidden corner. The lady said she really loved it and it was the one she wanted. However, it was quite obvious it wasn't her size and there was no point her paying £80 for it. I hung close to her and as soon as she put it down, POW!! Size 6, totally fits. And, I got it AFTER the gates were taken down for a free-for-all. How lucky was I?
Originally my on the top of my list to buy before I thought I'd probably be sweeping floors with it
But with the platform leather sandellettes, these two buys may be the best ever combo in the collection for me
I think I could be happy with this and just the sandellettes alone
Size 6 fits. Impossible!

And after all that, I wonder why I buy all these things? Besides alleviating stress (caused by the want), am I actually happier at the end of the day?
