downs, and then ups
Quite often, I tend to eye stuff, and think, “Will it still be around come the sales?” and I'd always thought I was pretty good at it, and I’ve scooped some things I rather liked at a discount, because I was patient enough to wait it out. (Of course things that are instant love and realistically within my budget, I snap it up, no regrets, but those are a different story.)
Well clearly my powers of “will it so on sale” deduction were not as potent as I thought, because lo and behold, I spotted this dress I bought at Topshop less than TWO WEEKS AGO at the Topshop sale. It was on sale for S$59, and I’d paid S$83 (already a discount from S$103, thank goodness). Not a huge difference yes, but still, I feel a little burned. I could buy a book with the difference. That’s hours of pleasure.
But I guess we win some and lose some, because I did manage to score a really cool skirt for S$29, a nice addition to my wardrobe of mostly denim bottoms -
It looks terrible with my top which was too close a colour and I appear to have no waist and a chunky trunk and I also look sort of stumpy and I have no idea why it looks so odd in the photo but I swear it looks normal in the mirror and my sister assured me the same when I got home and tried it on for her.
I’d never seen this skirt around the shops until I checked out the sale today, and there it was. It doesn’t fit as flawlessly as I would like it to, but then for something made of basically sweatpants material, I didn’t really expect it to. So yeah, my anger was appeased when I left the shop, but I think I will feel the pang when I look at my dress. Perfectly wonderful yes, but even more so if it has been S$24 less.
