My Shopping Conquest #44
YSL Y-Mail Dog Tag Necklace In Gold And Silver
I am literally shopping non-stop this 2008. I 'scare' myself when I reflect upon what I have bought in the last 365 days. Oh gosh. So my new year resolution is to cut back on the shopping next year. In 2009, I shall and will do my utmost to stop myself from buying too much! I did my part of saving the economy...so it is time to let others 'inherit the good retail karma'. Hahaha.
But before I start to slowly 'retire', my last chance at accumulating retail karma...I did it again. I went to Club 21 Accessories shop at Siam Paragon to get the YSL Y-mail Dogtag necklace that has lingered on my mind ever since I saw it on Tuesday. Darn. I should have stopped myself from looking too much in the shop. :-) What's done cannot be undone, I am attracted by the necklace and I just have to get it, especially at 50% off.:-)
So for the last day of 2008, my last purchase and final declaration of my LVoe for YSL Y-mail series...I got the Y-Mail Dog Tag Necklace in Gold and Silver. Cute little piece of jewellery that sets itself apart from the normal butch dog tags. It feature the ingenious envelope design that makes Y-mail so adorable. Comes in gold and silver tags with a gold chain. I am happy that I can have 2 choices of colour to wear with this necklace. I plan to attached it to my silver Agnès B dogtag chain when I wear the silver Y-mail tag. I love versatility. Can't wait to wear these. Tres Chic!
Apparently after a search online, these Y-mail Dogtags also come in either all silver or gold variations. The silver ones retail for US $430 on www.ysl.com
I paid THB 8250 after a 50% discount with a 7% VAT back (Approx. SGD $342). So I consider it a super good deal to be picked up on the last day of 2008. Happy New Year to me!:-P Lastly, conscience bites those who lies:-P What goes around comes around, mind you:-).
Update: Got my credit card bill and the necklace amounts to just SGD $353.98 before VAT claim
Retail price: THB 16500. Where to buy: Club 21 Accessories at Siam Paragon, Bangkok
