Shopping Diary : Clothing Haul6:53:00 PM
This post was supposed to be up by mid January but it seems that I have become old and forgot about a lot of things including this planned post. So here it is anyway... (before I forgot about it again).
I did a few shopping spree back in December because of the many sales and promotions offered during the holiday season. My favorite time to do a shopping spree is usually during these three times : the Holiday season (end of year) sale, the Jakarta great sale (usually on July/August), and the Lebaran sale. Those times are the best time to shop especially if you love big discounts like me (^_^).
This haul is mostly about clothes and I'll have another separate post about my beauty haul. In the mean time, here are a couple of clothing items that I got during the end of year sale. One day I went out with hubby for a full shopping day. We checked out the stores at the mall and found some items that were on discount. Hubby got a few items of his own while I got a couple items too :
H&M Black Lace T-Shirt
We went to H&M that were having a big sale at that time. I reached for only three items from the sale section, despite the many things I actually wanted to take home with me. I also picked the ones that have the cheapest prices, Lol. One of them is this blouse made of t-shirt material, but it has lace details on the shoulder and chest area. If you're my old follower you probably might have already noticed how much I love lace :) Anyway, this blouse was discounted to IDR 69900 only!
H&M Laser Cut Tunic/Dress
This was deeply discounted so of course I had to pick this up. This was actually a size bigger than my original size but I decided to purchase it anyway because it was so cheap. When I tried it at home I found out that it's actually a bit big on me especially on the arm hole so I might sell this one later on. I'm loving all the details though, the laser cut detailing on the chest and the pompoms edging are so pretty.
H&M Divided Tank Top
One other item I got from H&M was from their Divided line. Just a casual dark grey tank because I don't have a tank top in this color on my wardrobe. I'd say that tanktops are important to have in my wardrobe because I use them frequently. I wear them daily when the days are hot, and I also need them to be worn underneath sheer blouses or cropped sweaters or low-neckline tops. So I gotta have 'em in various styles and colors (;p).
Mango Olive Cropped Top
Then we went to Mango which was also having a sale. I picked up this cropped top with long sleeves in olive color. I'm into olive / army green color lately, I don't know why (;p). Anyway, this was discounted to IDR 99000 from it's original price of IDR 169000. The tanktop you see on the picture was from a different store.
Mango Last Casual T-Shirt
I bought another item from the Mango sale. It was a casual t-shirt because I was in need of new t-shirts. I really like typography t-shirts like this and the words on this t-shirt suits my personality just well. Turns out that I really like this tee so much I worn it right away the next day without washing it first, oops! (;p).
Metro Grey Cardigan
Metro was also having a sale. There was a sale rack near the exit door where it was full of women scraping and digging through the sale items on the rack. I was curious to see what they were so focused on. Turned out that it was a sale rack filled with knitted items such as this cardigan in many different colors and styles - and it was discounted for 70% off! The ladies were going crazy in this rack. I grabbed this grey one in my size before anyone snapped it off, and went straight to the cashier and got a little bit shocked when the cashier told me that there was another additional discount and it made my cardigan only costs around IDR 32000 !! (*shockedbuthappy*).
Express Lace Blouse
I already have the same exact blouse in my wardrobe, but it's in beige color. I loved that beige one so much it makes me want to buy another one. So I went back to the store and got this black one :) As I told you before, lace is my weakness (;p). I also love the zipper detail on the back of the blouse.
Random Brand Tanktops
These tanktops were purchased later on. I think I bought these around mid January. To go with my army green cropped top from Mango I bought this army green tank. I also bought the turquoise one to wear underneath my recently purchased Calvin Klein pullover that I bought back in early January (see HERE).
Two pairs of lounge / pajama pants
I was sick a while ago and was out of pajama pants very fast because I kept on sweating like crazy after I drank my medicine. That makes me realized that I need more pajama pants in my life because apparently I only have a few of them (and they are a savior for sick days). So I bought these random brand pajama pants (one in grey, one in floral pink/rose) from a department store.
Denim-Colored Boho Tunics
Later on I also bought these two boho/hippie style tunics from an online instagram store. I don't want to put the name of the store here because I had bad experience with the seller. She was not nice at all and she lied about my order. She said that it's ready stock but my order was delivered almost a month than the original date of my payment transfer. She never gave me news about my order, I'm the one who always ask her about my package while she kept on giving excuses (which I know is a lie) and she never ever said sorry -padahal kesalahan mutlak ada di pihak dia. Luckily the items were really nice (as you can see on above pic) but I won't promote her store because of the bad experience.
So anyway, that's it for my shopping haul : the fashion edition. I have another one coming up, the beauty products edition. So please stay tune and subscribed to my blog to see the upcoming beauty haul :)
