My Shopping Conquest #65

Below: A nice catalogue printed on very exquisite paper:-P Love the black and white photography

Below: Woven belt on the model...Love it!

Below: BTW, this Gucci Pink Handle Tote is now back in stock at the Gucci Paragon store. If you have been looking for this bag, you now have the chance to own it:-)

Massimo Dutti Woven Suede Belt In Sand Colour

With end of season sales arriving soon, time to conserve $ and get more mileage out of those shopping funds later when all brands start their most anticipated end of season markdowns:-)

Hence, to still keep shopping and yet not 'spend' away the sales shopping budget too soon, my plan is to shop now at more affordable labels, like Zara, Topman or Massimo Dutti, which offers high style at a great price:-). Furthermore, I do not want to pay full retail for an item at all those luxury labels and to find them reduced in a few week's time.:-) Not only does the current economy 'disapproves unnecessary expenditure':-P but my sensible mind also do not want to pay retail this close to the sales.

I have been smitten by the woven belt look which is excellent for summer styles. These belts is perfect for shorts and rolled up pants. Although I just got 2 new Muji ones, I was looking for a broader version to wear it with jeans. When I spotted this Massimo Dutti Woven Suede Belt In Sand Colour this evening, I fell in love! It is of the right width and I love the simple round brass buckle. There is some safari dejavu I get channelling from the belt because of the nice sand colour. So at a right price, I knew I want it and hence I got it:-) (Tip: Keep an open mind when shopping. This is not found in the men's department:-P)

oh gosh, the belt is nice! the almost mossy, olive green colour really adds to the safari feel. i wonder if they'll have it in my size.

i can't wait for the end of season sale as well! i can't wait to go shopping again especially since my last exam paper is tomorrow :D

it's more beige sand colour:-)

70 is the smallest size for women's belts in Massimo Dutti. There are bigger sizes. Go to the Lait towers store, they have more:-)

Kev, I just came back from the Gucci BJ store and the Pink Handle Tote is really huge. At 1.7m and small framed, i really cannot carry it off... it looked really good on the 1.9m mannequin though!

Price Tag: RMB 10,690.00

It's fortunate I did not get this bag...seems my interest in it has waned a lot:-) Probably can still find it during sale:-P
