Dress Addiction

Thursday, July 2, 2009

I don’t know what got into me. I think I overshopped for clothes last month. Four dresses and two blouses – all bought on sale at different times and in different places last month – are now hanging in my closet. I haven’t even worn most of them.




I ask myself, why do we buy things we don’t really need just because they are on sale? It’s like our mental faculties go zero once we see those blaringly glaring, willpower-testing and consumption-inducing numbers: 50-70% off.

I now vow not to step inside the mall for the next few months.

I went through that phase when I was still in the Philippines. I was a suki of big sale. Then when I was sorting my clothes before coming here, some are not appropriate in this part of the world, some no longer fits me (hahaha), etc., that I had to let go of them. I'm over that phase, thankfully.

Your picks are great, by the way. =)

i like the second one best. :)

it's ok, A. it doesn't happen every month naman, di ba? :)

ako din, stop na muna. promise din! *lol*

Angeli said...

oh yes,jac. that happened only last month. dala lang ng labis na kalungkutan ang pagwawaldas ko ng salapi. :)

i like the yellow best, they're all cute! hmm, i know how it feels to feel guilty over shopping but if it's 50-70 off?? :-) use them laughingly, make it worth it..

i think i have become better in controlling myself about shopping even if they're on sale. with the current look of the US economy, i can't bring myself to shop for clothes or anything that i think i don't need. i like the yellow dress too. i think it's really pretty.

the yellow one wins. :)

Angeli said...

the yellow one is the most sedate among all four; the violet, the most revealing. :)

artemis, if only there are good ukay ukay here... the best ones are still in baguio. :)

that's why it's tempting to go to mall on-sale. EQ is being tested ;) I like the purple one, is it a halter one?

Angeli said...

yes, amelia. it's a halter with a plunging neckline. :) and i'm still waiting for that special event where i can wear it..

how funny- today i was just a bit put-off because i only got one dress... guess what, i found a treasure trove- the ultimate of ukay spot in singapore- you can get brand new (as in with the price tag attached pa) stuff (e.g. mango, bossini, guess, esprit, etc) for like S$2- 8 (i.e. 60- 240 pesos). o di ba? :D hehe

oh, guess what? for the past month i have bought nearly 10 dresses =] LOL. and i haven't even worn any of them yet. it's all for our upcoming holiday. pare-pareho na tayo.. si mama din, ang daming bagong dress na di pa nasusuot. hehe
