girl on a mission



call it sisterhood, but i decided to put together a few helpful guidelines on dressing for sale season, just in case things get a little messy!

(1) wear flats! there will be a LOT of walking and standing in line for trial rooms.
(2) carry a small handbag. shopping bags tend to get heavy!
(3) wear a simple top. it’ll go with almost everything you try on. (i screwed this one up!)

(1) wear tight jeans! they’re not always easy to get on and off. opt for a skirt instead.
(2) wear too many don’t want to forget your favourite scarf in a trial room!
(3) over accessorize! trinkets often fall/break/ get lost in the hustle of trying on clothes.

pumped on coffee, adrenaline and the hope of finding the perfect cocktail dress on a budget, my two oldest girlfriends and i set out to scour the city’s sales for the hottest deals.

i expected to report back with tales of tears, joy and hair pulling, but alas, it turns out that a lot of the sales haven’t even started yet! bummer!

{ dress : hippies, blazer : vintage, stockings : le bijou, shoes : christmas gift/trios, bag : colaba, necklace : colaba, bangles : accessorize )

what useful tips help get you through sale season? share them with me in the comments section!

    Imogen: Awwww! That’s so sweet! Thankyou! You just made my day!

    I love the slightly oversized blazer with this, lady! Very cute!

    You’re so right about the flats. The only problem I find with wearing a skirt or dress rather than jeans is that if I try on a top, sometimes I really want to see how it’ll hang when paired with jeans.

    I just can’t win! :)

    Also, NEVER wear stockings , how will you ever get them on and off ? ;) Hahaha, great post.

  • Sophie

    super!! i love it!

  • Geeta

    Love the dress and your bag with the right pop of color. We have sales all round the year in US under some pretext or the other.

    I am all for flats.

  • Anushka

    Massom: Actually, I decided to wear stockings because (1) You don’t have to slip them on or off. If you’re trying a skirt or shorts, you can just slip them on over and see how they look with them.
    (2) if you’re trying shoes, you can see how your shoes fit with a pair of socks /stockings on cos sometimes when u buy em and bring em home, they’re too tight with stockings.
    (3) I wasn’t looking for jeans yesterday so I figured i could get away with it! ;)
