I've been a bad, bad girl - I'm not entirely sure if it's the disappointment of not securing anything in the Lanvin x H&M scrum or the realisation Ez and I only spent one day shopping in Paris. Possibly collective grief? Either way, the plastics are going on major hibernation after today.
I'd like to blame Club 21's End-of-Season flyer for this moment of weakness at Lanvin but, in truth, I should thank them for the sale preview since these deeply discounted darlings cost me scarcely more than a full-price Nine West (at 70% off).
If you pop down to their Hilton Shopping Gallery boutique, this treasure trove of items between 60-70% off is tucked away behind the mirrored screens at the far end of the boutique, whereas the rest of the store was an introductory '30% + 10%' - how sly! It's still early days in the sale so there are a decent selection of bags in the bargain bin - most going for under S$980, including an Amalia Cabas tote in a chilli-tomato red and this anthracite grosgrain shoulder bag. There was even a classic Lanvin 'Love' sketch pouchette for only S$164!
It's a wonder I came out relatively unscathed... now excuse me while I let the cards go cold and the shopping frenzy die down *cough* *shiver* *sweat*
