♥♪♪♥My recent online shopping loots♥♪♪♥

It's the time of the year when I suddenly unleash my spendthrift nature after saving so hard.

My latest splurge… a pink Gucci tote bag!


The snooty brand conscious people would say “Oh that’s so last season” but I don’t care. It is the limited edition pink range from last year. I still remember walking into the Gucci boutique and admiring all the pink range… lemming for a small shoulder one but refusing to spend $800+ on a bag. Now I’ve got a big one for a good deal. The boutique was selling the big one at $1080 last year.

And then in the background, kh would go “What??!! $XXX for a bag?”

I don’t care coz it makes me happy.

Besides $XXX for an authentic Gucci tote is real cheap!

I was talking to evan on msn the other day and raving to her about my new buy. Upon ending the conversation, she went, "Gucci night!" Haha...



This gorgeous jacket just arrived at my doorstep yesterday…

Abercrombie Casey Fur Bomber Jacket


Isn’t this jacket simply lovely? I love it to bits… the design, cutting, the fit.

“It’s nice but why do you keep buying jackets and boots when Singapore is so hot?” my mother wondered.

“It’s nice, it makes me happy and now I have a winter jacket,” I answered.

“But there is no winter here.”

I got it for a steal of $90 inclusive of postage. The original price is $178. However, although it is authentic, the jacket came directly from the factory and I spent lots of time cutting the loose threads. That’s what you get for buying things at a steal. As Abercrombie is well-known for their quality, I was a little upset by the workmanship especially the furring of stitches of the moose logo. I hope the seller gets back to me.



On the topic of Abercrombie, I got this humour tee a few months back…

Abercrombie cute and classy humour tee


Initially, I thought the humour was in the irony that one cannot be cute and classy at the same time. Everybody else who saw me in that tee thought the same too.

"Are you sure you are cute and classy?"

Before you read on, use your blink 2 seconds judgement and try to spot the intended humour...











One fine day, I was just lying on my bed, staring at this tee hanging on my door and it suddenly dawned on me that the words ‘cute ass’ is in a darker shade than the other words!

That the humour dawned on me only recently really left me speechless. I was stunned at my foolishness in realising it so late. I just lay there dumbfounded, with my stupidity as a consolation and encouragement to all stupid people in the world. Yes that includes all those who saw my tee. We are stupid people.



xmas present from my 2nd sister...

Papillio Zebra brown Arizona


Ya I know xmas is so 4 months ago. Anyway, I forced this xmas present out from her. We were ordering from her friend and when the goods arrived, I acted like a brat and simply refused to pay her, saying that I’ll treat it as my xmas present. So she tried to swindle a pair of addidas sneakers out from me and we ended up buying shoes for each other. Nope, we are not supertitious about buying shoes and running away.

By the way, she deems my taste very bad. She says nobody else would choose this obiang zebra pattern. I, on the other hand, think it’s cute, quirky and unique! I’ve seen so many people wearing the same Whisper White as me, I’m sure nobody would wear a Zebra Brown.

  1. Jolene why did you install the right click function? I wanted to copy and paste some words here but have to type them out. Haha!

    I love all the things you bought. You have great taste!

    I agree with so many things you say. As long as we feel happy, its ok. I love your pink Gucci tote can. It is so super sweet. And the furry jacket too. I did not see the cute ass until I read what you wrote. And its so funny when you say that your stupidity is a consolation to all stupid people in the world. Very witty girl! I am a stupid people too. Maybe the zebra print slippers is quirky but I think you can carry it off so it will look good on your feet. No worries yes?

    Oh update more. I'm so happy to see your updates.

  8. anon,
    From Yahoo auctions SG. As far as I know, they are authentic.


    yen,
    =)


    crabby evan,
    The seller says it's more like autumn jacket. Me thinks the fur is quite thick and it's suitable for those warm winter. Not those below 0 deg C kind probably. =)

    I'm in the process of getting an exchange. Very sincere seller I must say. Told her I was upset with the loose threads when A&F is supposed to emphasise on quality control. She actually offered a partial $10 refund when she could not do an exchange as that was the last piece.She used to sell it for $149 on her auction.

    Should I take the $10 refund? or exchange for this but topping up another $10? http://sg.auctions.yahoo.com/sg/i:Abercrombie%20%26%20Fitch%20Nadia%20Fur%20Ladies%20Jacket%20Cream%20Sz%20S:235139511

    She's agreeable to it. But now I can't decide...

    I hate the indecisive me.
