A Shopping Dilemma #04


Zara Checkered Track Style Jacket

Today after work, I was out in the Orchard Road again for dinner and also to Kinokuniya to pick up some magazines. I got the latest Style and Popeye magazine. Of course, no trip to Orchard Road will be complete with a little window shopping. I do not dare step into any branded stores for fear of my 'wandering eyes' and 'weak will' to succumb to another retail temptation again. So I went to Zara and CK Calvin Klein. The latter is still not a good idea since it is not too cheap. Fortunately, nothing much in CK interests me or got me sleepless. But for Zara, I spotted this nice corduroy track style jacket which I really like. With a checkered design and elastic ribbed collar and cuffs, it is soft and very fitted. The black colour looks amazing and the checkered print is so on trend this season. I could see myself wear this anyday! So easy to match and keep warm especially on these recent rainy weather. Now I am contemplating to buy or not buy. One comforting thought, at least this is not going to break an arm or leg for my wallet. At SGD $89.90, it goes to show nice things dun always have to be branded and overpriced:-P

(Oh, I also tried on a white tuxedo shirt with a bow-tie (SGD $19.90). I look silly..so I pass it up. I love the bow-tie. Someone will make good use of that. Not me. The price is also very reasonable for a not so frequently used fashion item.)

Today I am wearing Pull And Bear T-shirt, Agnés B Dogtag necklace, Dolce Gabbana belt, snakeskin ID bracelet and jeans with White Converse Shoes and carrying my Miu Miu canvas bag.
