vanity strikes

This is what happens when you have a new toy with you as you go shopping. Mango was going about its end-of-season sale. The dress I'm wearing in the photo was down to 2,000Php (wow, like that made it all of a sudden affordable). I decided to relegate the funds to more purchases of film.

I always like going into the sales of high-end stores. Even if i'm 90% sure I would end up buying nothing. I'm just hoping somehow I'd stumble across a great find. There was this time I got my hands on this very glam puffa vest at Mango. The tag said 799Php. WOW goddammit I can't let this pass! I was hanging onto it for dear life as I browsed through the rest of the racks. When I was about to pay for it, the counter lady said it was tagged wrong. And that it was actually 1,000++ something. ACK! The horror. The dismay. I knew it was too good to be true.

I'm such a cheapskate. Maybe I should just stick to ukay. And make it glam by virtue of personality.

    The shots looks CD-ish cover to me. I am now broke after purchasing Baby Safari. Argh, my plastic is dying if I buy another gadget.

    i don't know why few "little things" I like always have to be expensive.

    Hey Dez, you look like a European model in the pic. About the wrongly tagged item, actually you can always insist that they follow the one on the tag. I did this before with a book and they were left with no other option but to give the said book to me at the indicated tag price. I saved P800 on that purchase.

Sometimes bored. Most of the time oddly alive. Phobic of butterflies. Creatively suppressed. Hungry for coffee and shoes. This is my subconscious talking... at times interrupted by my reality.

soundtrack of the moment
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
