The Late Confession

purchases-1
pu
(F21: White Tank Top, Tiered Chains, Edge-defining Sunnies. Grey skinnies & clutch from a random store)

As promised, I've finally found some extra time to make a so called, collage, of items I managed to grab during my trip to the city 2 weeks ago. As you can see, these items can be easily found almost anywhere and nothing too special about it. I wasn't too happy about my purchases if you notice from the words I am using. Well, true but at least I grabbed something rather than coming back empty-handed. At least, that was how I tried to convince myself because I realised I was doing it all wrong when I came across a blog yesterday, brigadeiro which offered lots of useful shopping tips and that it's really okay to go home without purchasing anything. Sigh. No point crying over spilt milk, right? But, there are some which I didnt regret purchasing. It's still ok, I guess.

Clutch:
Bought it for the lamest reason ever- 'I need a clutch'. Twas the first thing I saw and twas cheap. Why not, I thought. Or so I thought.

Grey Skinnies with Side Zipper:
Topping up another worn out pair which magically turn into an acid-washed skinnies after days spent in the outdoors.

White Tank Top:
Trying that whole A.Wang thing. Due to lack of time, I tried it with my clothes on and I think you guys know the rest of the story. What a silly thing to do.

Layered chains:
Mutemode grabbed it too. Affordable and exactly what I needed :)

Sunnies:
Been craving for one since style-antagonist owned one but it was never on my wishlist-kinda forgot about it.

Photobucket
(NOSE Wedge, MNG MANGO Floral Dress)

I've never felt so dissatisfied about my purchases until that day. So, as a revenge, we binge-shopped at the local malls and ended up purchasing these two items. The floral dress is my favourite and it was on sale. Ah, nothing feels as good as buying worth-buying sale items and coming back to my home sweet home. The dissatisfaction ended since then.

(Someone please do me a HUGE favor and give me a big slap as a reminder of the current economic crisis. I should really stop shopping!)

Hey Wendy! i knew it was a bad idea bringing Raven along with us in this trip.. i'm really sorry :( no more in the next trip, i promise :( Geez, i never thought that i would ever like layered necklace.. but after looking at your 1st picture, i'm begining to fall in love with it :D Oh no! i've missed it alr. i've should have bought it when i'm there!! :( Anyway, your grey clutch doesn't look bad at all after all, i did said that if its matt would be better, but now i could agree to go both matt or glossy. It fits your ensemble very well. And... your floral dress from MNG, i just can't take my eyes off it ever since. Damn! they just don't have it in L or at least a M size :( That's just so irritating! i hate the fact that i am always stuck with size L or XLs despite the effort to lose some weight and i am sick of it! (Sigh) .. Never mind, i shall look at the NOSE wedge for now. IT makes me happier, i thought we have missed it, ain't it? We're perpetually missing a lot of the 'it' or 'statement' accessories and things here. :D i'm glad that we've found of so-called Marni-wannabe-wedge :D ha ha! We should start convincing mutemode to get one too ;) i'm planning on one too as soon as the sale hits the store.. would like to get myself the green one.. he he! Anyway thanks for posting these, they're superb! Love it so much!

Kat said...

The floral dress is gorgeous! I wouldn't worry about the spending, I love everything you bought haha :D Most of it is basics you can wear to the death anyhow

Wendy said...

style-antagonist: hey no worries..Raven was not a nuisance on that day :) It's not bout that.. just a bit disappointed with a regular store which doesnt seem to do any updating on their stock. U know which I meant LOL! you can fit into M actually but you chose to buy clothes of L sizes:-p yes, we must talk Ivy into buying that wedge too.. then the 3 of us will have it.. the green one is gorgeous :( ah, im trying not to overthink here LOL thanks for introducing me to the wedge.. cos check out those comments on the shoes ;)

Wendy said...

Thank you to all.. I felt much better about my purchases and I'm beginning to love them all! :D

Wendy said...

I'm loving the wedges - definitely marni-esque.

Isabel said...

Coincidentally, those are the exact sort of the jeans i've been look for, the grey jeans with side zippers! But i'm hoping for a pair that are lighter washed, but these are nice! Where did you purchase them?
PS love the dress and the heels.
