CA report

9 pairs of shoes, 4 pairs of slippers, 3 bags, 3 wallets, 2 pairs of Ray-bans, cosmetics and some other small items. This pretty much sums up my 1 week in California =) My bboss still doesn't understand how we managed to shop so much in so little time and more importantly, where did we get the energy from. I really dread returning to work in SG. How I wish I could be like my counterparts in USA, to be a true R&D engineer or a project engineer to follow through an entire project and not just receive the end manufacturing process (boring....) It's back to reality again.

1 new pair per working day

This is one of those rare occasions that small feet actually is useful. 4 pairs of Tory Burch that cost less than 2 pairs of regular priced Reva pumps =) The sales assistant was 99% sure I won't be able to fit into the kids size 3 and I had to ask 3 separate times before she reluctantly brought out 1 pair for me to try. The leopard pumps is from Saks and was on 50% off its already marked down price. I'm pretty much done with my shopping and its only the first day.

luvvv U.S.A

17 hrs later, 13600km away, I'm back in this lovely city where shopping and eating seems to be the only thing on my mind. 6 months ago didn't seem so long ago.... If only this can become a 6 monthly visit =)

Little Sally

A simple shoulder flap handbag is something every lady should own. Yes, it really puzzles me who a small little purse which requires so little leather cost more than a regular sized handbag that uses more than twice the amount of leather. But there's something about the simplicity of these designs that make them stand out. I've listed some of my favorites =)
Clockwise: Hermes Constance, Celine Box, Mulberry Lily, Chloe Sally, Chanel Flap
Hunting this down was quite painful. Many stores only bring in the bigger size, which was spotted on Rachel Bilson and Leighton Meester. However, I felt that the bigger version made it lose its lady-likeness and continued hunting for the small version. Of coz, eventually finding it made the purchase extra sweet...... I really like the intertwined gold shoulder chain. But it made the bag really heavy for its size. Nevertheless, isn't it always beauty over pain? hahahaha
Little Sally against Bal First. Small bags for petite me =) Spreading my options these days.
