I Got Me-Self a Pretty Blue DressThursday, February 28, 2013 Mary Anne Velasco
It might have taken almost one month for my order to arrive at our doorstep but it’s worth the wait! As mentioned on a previous blog post [My Tuesday and Cha-Ching! --- A New Dress for Me!], I ordered dresses [Quite a few. Five to be exact] on eBay and since delivery time via ordinary mail from Asia to Sweden takes like forever, having eBay items reach our mailbox always comes as a surprise! Shallow as it probably sounds but the feeling’s dramatically breathtaking.
Today, work ended at 4PM. I dropped by the two clothing boutiques on my way home but here’s the good thing… despite loads of items on huge sale, I left both stores without buying anything. Compared to my shopping addiction during my one-week London vacation, saying no to temptation sometimes feels absolutely great!
When I arrived in our flat, I checked the mailbox [as always] and ta-dah… a package! It was one of those purchased I made on eBay --- the pretty blue dress! Yehey!
That Pretty Blue Dress:
The color is so beautiful. The style and the cut are simple yet gorgeous. Those lace details on the neckline and sleeves add cuteness to the piece. I heart it! I am so happy I bought it. No regrets!
Two have arrived, three more to go! I can hardly wait to have all five in my possession. Well, well… it’s just a matter of time. Woot woot!
Looking back --- those huge screaming banners posted everywhere inside The Harlequin Shopping Centre, Watford were so inviting and tempting. I ended up leaving that mall with quite a load of shopping bags! Oh yeah. Vinyl banners printing – business establishments investing in attractive and captivating ads, most of the times, end up gaining more clients.
