Torn Between Two Retail Lovers

I was so deporessed friday that I couldnt do anything productive saturday morning, after a quick run, I took a bath and hurried to makati to meet a friend who i havent seen in ages. its also a good time to do some retail therapy!

first up: power mac center in greenbelt 3. well actually its for my mom. my super sosyal mother has been nagging me to buy her a belkin case for her new phone.

I threw away my shisheido lip balm because it make smy lips crack. instead i went to first aid in gb3 to purchase a pharmacist recommended and cheaper balm: carmex!

As i went for a quick stop at my perennial store Topman, i saw this really cool chain necklace! I quickly gave the SA my card and waited for him to swipe it away, sadly, my card had problems so i said

"its ok, i'll just get cash from the atm, hold it for me"

After getting cash, I saw CARBON, the all black store by raul francisco? (correct me)

I've always loved CARBON. all the pieces are classy. but what is this, its on sale!!!

the steel door of carbon(gb3)

black is always classy. i was torn between the topman necklace and this! it took me a good 20 minutes to decide! but i went with CARBON piece since topman is always in my closet, i think this carbon piece will be a welcome addition to my euro-trash closet! haha

I politely went back to topman and told them that I went for another purchase, ok lang naman daw, eh hello, kase naman, their machine is not working.

then i went to the very quaint FIRMA store which houses Bea Valdes bags as well as Lhuiller pieces and beamon necklaces.

again for the second time i was torn between two items!

i think i spent a good 15 minutes asking the sales associate which is better

me: miss, which is better?

sa: that one sir because the detail is better

me: ok...

me: which one?

haha. i swear i was like a broken record


armband with silver detail (P500)

price is not bad right?

but i went with the one below, because like what they said, its all about the detail!

after my retail hunt, met up with donna and had dinner in itallianis. haha because i had no more money! anyway, it was a fun day.

totally erased some of my badtrip-ness.

anyway, if you were me, would you have picked my choices as well? :))
