Summer Sale

It’s no secret that I’m on a first-name basis with the Fedex and UPS guys at my house, but it’s starting to be the case here even at my parents’ house. In the early afternoon the trucks would pull up, and before I even rip open the packages, I can already feel an upsurge of serotonin through my body. Mood goes up, energy goes up, bank account goes down.

So the shoes in today’s entry have been some of my scores from the recent summer sale. The ready-to-wear loot has also been particularly…shall we say, generous. I was lucky enough to find this dress in both salmon and black:

I keep telling my mom that the longer it takes my father to recover, the more her house is going to look like a Chanel store. More revelations when I get back home next week. I’m going to need an extra suitcase, because as I was writing here, look what the guy in brown dropped off 😀 …

    irene & kat: that big box was hilarious to see once i finally broke it open. it had a nice built-in hanging rack for the jacket and tunic. i’m ashamed to contribute to the pollution of this planet, but i thought it was a very cool wardrobe box!!

    Yeecin: i do like the shape of the shiva bags a lot, but i’m not too crazy about the sheen/coating on the leather. perhaps that makes the bag more durable though. i saw the pic of a golden python shiva used in the runway show and have been secretly hoping to run across it but so far no luck. did manage to see a mini flap in red gator at the boutique though!!

    Hi Larkie,
    I have been away for a while. I just read your posts. I hope he will recover soon. But I cannot wait to see the dresses and the shoes are so lovely:)
    I went into Chanel last week, I saw this Shiva bag in beige. Have been thinking about it since. What’s your opinion on this bag?
    Thanks 🙂
