If I ever had a shopping fantasy that I could fulfil to my heart’s content, it would have played out like it did yesterday. We swept down Orchard Road after my hair cut and ended up at Paragon. There I spotted the YSL Raspail Casade Print-Tote in Black I have been lusting after all this while and it was on sale, at only SGD1078 after discount. Next we headed down to Ngee Ann City and walked past On Pedder where I spotted another cutie. Not sure of its exact name, but it was a pvc balloon-shaped tote from Comme des Garçons in black, grey and blue. It was also on sale and a steal at just SGD291.
Coach was next, and I spotted another sale item, the Coach Tattersall Oblong Scarf which was only around SGD90 or so after the discount. Again, I put it down and walked out. Next we headed towards the concept space called 693 Fifth Avenue by Takashimaya New York within Takashimaya Department Store and fell very hard for this. I’ve never heard of this brand but I loved what I saw. It was the Foley + Corinna Leather City Tote in River (pictured above). Retailing for SGD768, it was not on sale but I was definitely tempted. Not only is it 100% leather, it was also huge, measuring 47cm by 54cm, perfect even for a big boy like me.
I would have spent over SGD2200 in total today if I had given in to all my impulses. Strangely I was reluctant to spend today (the Banana Republic shorts and Greyhound shirt I did buy do not count). I keep telling myself, something bigger is coming my way and I need to save for it. I just do not know what it is yet.
