the heart quickens
This is a moment of sheer desire, a 'want' completely overriding reason, prudence, good sense, rationality, practicality, thrift, discipline, whatever. This is too bloody cute, and dangerously affordable. It is an upscale version of my little white cross-body purse which has served me so well, and is now in danger of being recklessly supplanted by this luxurious tempter. I spotted it in a window display and now find myself unable to get it out of my head. RESIST. Those in a career crisis and fighting temptation to stomp out of the office everyday have no business shopping for luxury treats.
