i hate crowds. so obviously, i hate going to the mall during weekends. and seriously avoid sale season. i do however admit that i love great deals and discounts but i honestly would prefer full price so as long as i do not squeeze my tiny self in a sweaty, crowded sale stampede. to make it easier for me, i go to private sales. or mall hop in the middle of the week, early in the morning (as soon as they open the doors) and finish my shopping before noon so i can be out before the crowd starts coming in. this is one of the main reasons why i love online shopping. at a click of a button, in the comfort of my bed while i enjoy a cup of coffee in my PJs, i can order what i want and stand by for the delivery at my door in just two days. so i basically wait for announcements and save up for seasonal sales to get me a dose of some online retail therapy.

online shopping. because its frowned upon to be in a store with no bra. sweatpants. and a glass of wine…

this gorgeous ensemble was one of my recent acquisitions at a SHOPBOP sale and absolutely adore it. a true treasure find if you ask me coz everyone who has seen me wear it has been absolutely inlove with it.

and the best news?
