Bangkok is one of my favourite country to go when I want a short fuss free break. What’s there not to like? The food is cheap and good, massages everyday, shopping everyday! It’s a shopper’s paradise! This is my loot for the trip. 20121015-151257.jpg20121015-151316.jpg
A pretty chevron sheath top (200baht) with exposed zip at the back, denim shorts and more shorts for the eternal summer days at home. As you can tell, I got a little carried away with mustard shorts. Wanted an orange pair but didn’t manage to get one. The shorts cost between 200 and 250 baht ( about USD6.50 ) each and really mix well with my existing wardrobe. 20121015-151812.jpg20121015-151822.jpg20121015-151902.jpg


The red an white stripe top cost 200baht too. But the icing on the cake is the camouflage jacket. It is the exact one that you see in Zara this season. Likely to a reject for some minor manufacturing fault but honestly, I cannot see anything wrong with it. This is the jacket ( left) as shown on the Zara website

20121015-152459.jpg. It cost me 800 baht. That’s USD26. I later found another shop at Platinium Mall selling it for 650baht ( USD21). It’s selling for USD105 in Zara stores.. I about died when I finally got the jacket. SoooOooooo happy!! Heehee.


Happy feet! January 9, 2012

Im a little late for the platform shoes trend. But I didnt lose my heart to any that I saw until I saw these on Payless website. Unfortunately, they are not available in stores locally.


Then yesterday, while I was passing through the mall during lunch, I saw these Nine West Devika pumps who looked almost identical to the ones from Payless. Even at 50% off they probably cost twice as much as the pair from Payless. But there was no way I could walk away without getting my paws on them. Im the proud owner of these delish pumps!!

It seems Steve Madden Sarrina pumps look pretty much similar too.


Should I? January 7, 2012

I saw this white blouse with black trims on eBay. Should I? The seller claims that the product is as seen in the pictures, but I’m quite doubtful. These look like they are ripped off some catalogues. Have you seen them before?



I saw something similar on Net-a-porter for £162 ( and it’s supposed to be on sale )


There, I think, despite my earlier claim that I have everything in my wardrobe, I’m still coveting for more. Already two item on my brand new covet list.
1. Payless block heels in black
2. A white and black blouse like these

Black and white again! Old habits die hard.


I want these shoes!!!! January 6, 2012

New year Shopping December 22, 2011

Loot for the month. I’ve been shopping since my birthday in October… Oops. All sponsored by the husband, thanks old man!!

Recognize this sweater? I mentioned it here and here. Cannot believe I found it at Far East for SGD$33! that’s way cheaper than Romwe and Chicwish! Woot! I’m so going to be an outfit pirate!

Some accessories to make things a little fun.. Hairbands are SGD$5 for all three and the spectacles are SGD$9.80.

The two pairs of jeggings and the red trousers from Bershka.

I’m very happy with my wardrobe because it seems to have everthing I ever need and want to wear so much so that I’m willing to reduce my shopping budget next year to $1000 for the entire year. ..or maybe .. $500 would be more reasonable… Hmm…. Or maybe… Nothing.. Gulp!!!! Nah… No way… But definitely, I would like to spend less next year and work on remixing my wardrobe a lot more.

There are times when you try on a hundred pairs of jeans/ pants and cannot find one you like. AND then there are days like that when you are not even looking that hard , and what you have been looking for simply falls right at your feet. I bought TWO pairs of jeans AND the red trousers. Just when I thought I am going to have to pass the colour pants trend. The perfect red.. Ok rust-ish maroon pants appear.. * sigh… Satisfied

Very similar designs from romwe and chic wish. Not so similar on the price tags though.


Interestingly, Romwe has the red version too!


Another sweater that appeared on both sites. Chicwish has the blue version.
