my shopping habits 101

Final exams results are out but I just cannot bring myself to check it yet...I guess I am just delaying the inevitable...again...


My loot from Taiwan
My Taiwan trip is not bad. Although some places are a bit dull. I like Taipei the best, maybe because I grew up in a city. Anyways, shopping in Taiwan is awesome although Bangkok is still my tops. Too bad I was on a budget so I cannot get all the stuff I wanted. The style in Taiwan is a lot girlier than my preferences but I still managed to copped some really pretty stuff.

Hopefully I will find the time to blog about my Taiwan trip...:)

Anyway, feel like posting some selca pics. I don't normally do it in this blog since I am not really some kind of avid fashionista. I cannot afford to buy branded goodies as much as I would want to. But I like eclectic, quirky and one-of-a-kind clothes and accessories. Oh, and I love vintage stuff too. There is something so beautiful and classic about retro stuff. 

caged blouse, vintage bag: sg Wang | tutu skirt, vintage shoes: times sq  
Really like this blouse a lot. Must have worn it the most out of all my new clothes. There is this new area opened at Sg Wang 2nd floor called, "Fashion Runway". Prices are higher than the other shops but their clothes are totally in-trend. Another place I frequent is Sg Wang 6th floor, "T-Hop Zone" because they are also selling really unique and trendy items, like this bright peach and blue vintage bag. The best thing about this bag is the lock which is super cute.

I do online shopping a lot. And I mean, a lot. Sometimes I go overboard with it. One of my favourite items that I purchased online a while back ago was this pale pink dress because I simply like the design of the skirt. I initially saw it on another site but it was sold out. So when I saw it again on Mango+Orangie, I was ecstatic but a bit upset that it was at a higher price. But I still bought it anyways:) lol.

mustard yellow cardigan: jusco | toga top: Dressy Dresser | silver rosette skirt: diy | vintage shoes: times sq | vintage brooch: mom's
I had to post this pic of my new skirt which I absolutely love. Ever since I saw these H&M inspired rosette skirts selling online, I had my heart set on them but they were selling at exorbitant prices. By chance, I saw a pillow case cover with gorgeous rosette details on them selling at Jusco. So I bought it and thanks to my mom's great tailoring skills, she helped me sew the pillow case cover onto an old skirt. Ta-da! Not bad, no? Saved me a bomb and I love it:) Also love my mustard coloured cardi. Been searching high and low for one and so happy I found one!

Suzane the shopping queen
My roommate, Suzane Mah came and stayed over at my house for a week pre-Taiwan trip and we both have been on a shopping spree. Well, she mostly, as she wanted to get a brand new wardrobe of working outfits as she starts working next week. I am also surprised at the amount of clothes she got in this one week as she normally is the frugal type. Psst, really dig her blue dress and pink floral top:)
