It was a typical Wednesday, the allocated day of the week, ever since I got married, to meet my mum for dinner. She, surprisingly, wasn’t in the mood to cook and wanted instead to pop by my sister’s workplace (the Polo Ralph Lauren store at Isetan Scotts) to show me the items which she has reserved (only due for collection in July. ATAS), and at the same time check out the Isetan private sale, since we could enter via some special privilege. TSK. The last time I’ve been to an Isetan private sale must have been eons ago with my ex ex colleagues who were members so I have hardly any recollection of the crowd level. And boy, it was absolute madness. We could barely shop, with women from don’t-know-where on the verge of a stampede and ransacking the racks like they’re F.O.C!
But I have to admit that some of the items on sale were a genuine slash off the retail price. I bought a maxi dress at a steal of $17 (which hopefully can see me through at least one of the sudden surge of upcoming weddings in June & July) and my mum bought a tee for $11.Thumbs up to Isetan who had the foresight to install those make-shift changing rooms and cashier counters which made our overall shopping experience a little more efficient.
So anyway, when I first saw my mum, I realized our outfits were pretty matching, and it was totally unintentional! Even her newly acquired bag from Europe matched the base color of my skirt! Cool eh?
I kid you not. It is an endless world of possibilities with florals, and no, they DO NOT add years to your age, and if you know how to style your outfits well, they do the exact opposite of shedding radiance and colors to your wardrobe!
So if you are up to the task, why not shop with us at Lavender Lane
