It’s upon us, finally! The two month long Great Singapore Sale (GSS) season, along with end-of-season sales worldwide. Hope everyone has been diligently saving up and scouting out their dream purchases!
I probably need to pace myself a bit better… in just two days my tally is currently:
Etro: 2 dress shirts and a silk sacrf
Prada: 1 structured doctor’s bag and 1 pair of perforated Oxfords
And I’m still patiently waiting for a Marc Jacob’s tote to go on sale, as well as a certain Bottega Veneta clutch. As I was telling someone yesterday, the trick for designers/labels is to create really special things that move the customer to action – how can you not buy something you find unbelievably gorgeous, iconic and unique?
Same goes for non-clothes too. I bought this gorgeous LED table lamp from SPACE with a significant mid-year sale discount (which makes it just about the same price as buying it direct from Europe or the US). If you’ve ever seen the Kelvin LED from Flos, with it’s space-age looks and functionality (magic touch sensor on/off switch!!), I’m sure you’d be seduced too!
Maybe some pictures will be forthcoming… we’ll see.
Work is awesome, I *heart* my current project, it’s so cool!
Siem Reap was such a beautiful, delicious, inexpensive and satisfying long weekend vacation. Everyone should go!!
