I woke up at 6am and went downtown to Holt Renfrew at 7:15am. There was more sale stuff and there's an extra 10% off from 7am-9am. Nothing on sale caught my fancy. I tried on some Christian Louboutin knee high boots with a chunky heel and square toe box (don't know the name). They were on sale for $889 (from $1475) but too bad they were so hard to take off and they weren't loves. I didn't get them.
I went to the Robson Aritzia because I knew the Pacific Center Aritzia would be packed since it's near a skytrain station. The Robson location was pretty quiet. All the things I wanted before on a wish list weren't really on sale for much because they are classics. Also, I wasn't in a very happy mood so wasn't in the happy mindset to splurge on anything like a new coat/leather jacket. I did walk out with two items. The Wilfred black lace tank for $39.99 (from $75) and the charcoal Wilfred free double knit long sleeve (similar to this photo) for $55 (from $70). The latter purchase wasn't that great of a deal but I wanted it. I'm going to wait for the second cut because there's nothing I really have to have.
I went to Zara next and tried on so many nice pieces (white crochet dress, white crochet top, and various blouses) but it was either too big or too small. I thought I could make it work. In the end I walked out with the oh so popular Zara gold sequin clutch for $35 (from $60) and Zara black patent flats for $20 (from $40).
I went to Brentwood mall as my last stop since I didn't get to make it to Metrotown. My cell phone ran out of batteries because I was rage texting, twittering and bbming so I drained the thing. Since I had a family dinner to go to, I had to make sure I make it home in time. In a way it's good I never made it to Metro, I saved money.
I got a beautiful deep purple strapless satin/chiffon dress for $47 (from $95). It's my back up New Years Eve dress if my ASOS doesn't come in time. I actually love this dress. I'm going to sew a hook and an eye to the back of the dress to help the zipper stay up since the dress barely zips. I usually hate strapless dresses but this one is super duper snug at the top so it doesn't keep on falling.
I bought some Relvon lip glosses on London Drugs. They didn't have any lip butters. I can never find good colours anywhere! GRRRR. But most of the Revlon lip products were $3.99 and there was a buy 2 get 1 free coupon next to the stand.
Pink pop (matte neon pink), Pink pursuit (shimmery peachy pink) and Orchid (shimmery mauve baby pink)
Total purchases = $230. Pretty good for the stuff I bought. The dress and the clutch were my favorite purchases and the most needed purchases.
