The usual ‘I have nothing to wear’ excuse which obviously ain’t true prompted me to update my wardrobe a little for the new season. I guess I was bored and didn’t really feel like hitting the shops after work because:
a) I’m just too tired
b) I can’t seem to get a cab
c) It’s way too crowded
So the closest I could get to shopping is online shopping! The only thing you don’t quite get out of it is instant gratification but coming home to them packages and ripping them apart to reveal the purchase kinda works for me as well.
My latest purchases come from asos. Super love that you can shop for the latest looks/ styles without burning a huge hole in your pocket. Their return policy is rather fuss-free as well so that’s a plus point for me to pick them as one of my fave e-retailers. The only downside? Shipping can take a while, sometimes up to a couple of weeks. By the time you actually receive the item, sometimes the excitement is already long gone.
Nevertheless, I’m still pretty pleased to have scored these items, especially the digital tiger printed sweatshirt with beaded embellishments! Since animal prints are once again all the rage, I knew I had to get this sweatshirt. Yeah, I know it’s probably not practical given our climate but I could always wear it with a skirt/ pair of shorts or make sure that the place I’m heading out to is really cold! Hehe…
I also got these 2 other printed items from asos. Mom might not approve of the white tee but I’m going to pair it with this other quirky skirt that I recently purchased online. Hopefully, the pairing would work in real life.
I’m also loving standout prints for this season as well. This other sweatshirt that I got is most certainly a funky trend piece that I couldn’t pass.
Now, all I’ve gotta do is to wait for the mailman to bring me these packages. Let’s hope for them to turn up in my mailbox soon!
