SoHopping!

The worst (or could be best) thing about living in the city is working on weekdays and wait for two weeks to get the paycheck just to spend it for 4 hours on a weekend. And then comes weekdays again. And again, and again, and yet again. What can I say, I want to invest my money where I can see ithanging in my closet.

Here’s a typical shop til we drop day
Destination: SoHo.
I am so dressed for shopping. I can take off my clothes for fitting faster than light! ZZZZip!
We went in to every vintage shop and bought some I-never-thought-I-look-good-in-this things with a ridiculously priced tag. There really are salespeople who has that certain knack of making you buy overpriced stuff you don't need.
The fun in shopping is in fitting the clothes and seeing that it fits perfectly. And when you're with a friend and you both love it, it makes you less guilty if you both buy the same stuff!
You have no idea how long it took to get that perfect shot!!!
Our frustration: we planned to go to Tory Burch earlier in the day... but because we've been distracted with a lot of shops and spent more time than we expect to in them, we didn't make it to Tory Burch. We were sooo bummed!
I can't hide my frustration! LOL
After an entire day of shopping, our cards were overused... but who cares? We just had a trip to Happyland:)




Whoever said money can't buy happiness simply didn't know where to go shopping.

betz you look very pretty! sorry it takes so long for me to reply. i really like your outfits. you're an inspiration for me, too.

p.s. thank you for the supports about my writing. they mean a lot to me. actually i'm currently working on a novella based on goo goo dolls' slide, and planned to have it published, although perhaps i'll still have to deal with the (hot) songwriter, too-- copyright issues and beyond. haha. wish me luck!! :)

can't wait to see more of your posts, betz. i really, really miss you too!

do you have a facebook account? i'll add you :)

Velire said...

Gaaah. You make me want to shop!! :D Hahah. That's why I decided not to have a credit card to minimize the temptation of spending though funny thing is, I have an ATM card which works just like a credit card. :| Temptation! :)) Hehehe. Love the shot you took of the people at the thrift market. :) Definitely using your idea of wearing a zipper dress :D
