A philocalist's thank you note/ Une lettre de remerciement de la part d'une philocaliste

Photobucket Photobucket

Remember when I was drooling over the A.P.C. Madras fall/winter collection? Well, I would very much like to thank the girls of my city, Montréal, who share my shape and size but not my taste. You see, as a job-less student, buying new clothing is a luxury. I only indulge in my vice through second-hand shops (and sometimes wait for their monthly 50% off day) or through exchanging what I already have for credit. But, once in a blue moon arrives a day when chance is on my side, and that day was yesterday. I stumbled upon the two blouses above at more than 50% off. In my size. And they fit like a charm.
All this to finally tell you that if you had been eying them for the whole fall like me, they are on big sale at UO.

Vous vous souvenez quand je bavais d'envie devant la collection automne/hiver d'A.P.C. Madras? Eh bien, je voudrais remercier les filles de ma ville, Montréal, qui partagent ma taille et ma forme mais pas mes goûts. Vous voyez, comme étudiante sans emploi, acheter des vêtements neufs est un luxe. J'entretiens mon vice seulement à travers les magasins d'occasion (et j'attends parfois leur événement mensuel où tout est à 50% de rabais) ou en échangeant ce que je possède déjà contre du crédit. Mais, très rarement, arrive un jour où la chance est de mon côté, et ce jour était hier. Je suis tombée sur les deux blouses ci-haut à plus de 50% de rabais. Dans ma taille. Et elles me font comme un gant.
Tout ceci pour finalement vous dire que si, comme moi, vous les avez regardées tout l'automne, elles sont en grand rabais chez UO.
