I am often told that I like things that are nice and unique. It's a blessing when it comes to designing something. It's a curse when I walk into a store. I usually don't like to take a lot of time shopping. I know what I want when I see it. I remember in Italy, I used to tell my friends that when I walk into a store, the items will speak to me. If there's something I'm going to like in a store, the moment I walk in, I can sense it. I also have this mentality that anything that I love and will love for the rest of my life is worth getting it regardless of the price. (Of course, it still has to be within my bank account limits). Dean often teases me for buying a necklace from Banana Republic that he thought wasn't worth what I paid for. Well Dean, I've worn it almost everyday since I got it and it's a timeless piece ok?
So this is how I generally shop:
I'll walk into a store and if they're lucky I'll stick around.
I'll usually take about 2 minutes to look around the entire store.
By this point, I would have already picked out one or two items I am interested in.
If it requires for me to try it on, I will do so at this point.
Then I would proceed to walk up to the cash register to purchase it.
It's at this precise moment that I'll realize that I haven't checked the price tag yet.
I will do so praying that it would be within my price range.
If it is, LUCKY ME. Usually, it's not. Because of course, (and this is the curse part), I eye things that tend to be the most expensive in the store.
It's not that I like things that is or look expensive. (Well, I do hate fake/fake-looking things). It's just my style and my taste. I can't help it.
So anyone? It's almost my half-birthday.
