Autumn is here and the gloomy rainy weather is getting too cold for my liking. Being a true blue Singaporean, who is very used to my hot tropical weather throughout the year, I will choose humid sweaty heat over dry bone chilling cold ANYTIME. (except maybe when skiing)
With the change in weather, I am so desperately in need of a nice warm coat, not that I have none, just that being a typical woman, it is always good to have new clothes in your wardrobe to go with the season, and it just seem so IMPOSSIBLE to explain this simple logic to my other half.
As much as I love to have nice clothes in my wardrobe, I can be quite lazy when it comes to shopping, I used to ‘steal’ clothes from my sis’s wardrobe as it was so much easier to choose from a narrow down selection where the ‘sieving’ through has been done. But gone were those days and my shopping companion. I am now left pretty much on my own to do the hunt as you can consider the duo in my household as inexistent when it comes to shopping.
So on Saturday, with my duo entertaining each other in the big mall, roller scootering and snacking, I spent a good 5 to 6 hours shopping, purely on coat hunting. I think I searched through every corner of the ZARA and MANGO boutiques, not once but twice! and I couldn’t find anything worthy enough to dump my money. It was so frustrating to think that I had wasted so much time and energy. I ended up with some good summer clothing, more to appease myself and to console myself that it is not such a fruitless day after all.
In an attempt to continue the hunt, I google for ‘winter coat’ over the net and found that most of the online shopping sites were in the States and it is one of those things that I missed about the States, the SHOPPING!
I am so drooling over some of the winter coats from VS. Then again, with figures like theirs, I will look good even with a 10 bucks coat from the market stall!
