"You may even get a great deal of satisfaction out of the sales, provided that you are armed with lots of courage and the will power to resist the temptation of some darling little outfit which in the end is terribly expensive when you realise that, while it may have cost you 'nothing', it is worth practically nothing to you."
- Genevieve Antoine Dariaux in "A Guide to Elegance"
