My worst fears have come to fruition. I'm trying to schedule a viewing for an apartment, but Net-A-Porter (USA) has begun their summer sale - and there are painfully good bargains abound... This is no time for weak shopping souls, and I'm absolutely fatigued from my long-term/short-term goal soliloquy. Glee's Fleetwood Mac episode playing on the telly provided the soundtrack to this drama.
This Bally Rachelle tote, which I've been eyeing in either the nude/brown or black/white, is now 50% off (US$697.50, approx S$906). The soft muted hues of the brown version stir my heart, but it's the classic monochromatic style which would add more to my office wardrobe. Having settled into the grind, I've come to appreciate how pulled together a boxy semi-structured tote looks when attending meetings - in fact, I'm regretting somewhat my Mulberry A4 Tote which seems the casual cousin in comparison.
On the International site, the Rachelle tote is currently about S$1390 at full price. In commercial terms, if this bag goes on 50% off on the main site, I'll be there waiting with my credit card!
Other excellent deals (and if they all seem rather neutral in hue, it's just me trying to be circumspect/justifying their purchase):
3.1 Phillip Lim K.C. leather satchel - Now US$425
Reed Krakoff multi-tone strappy sandals - Now US$390
Theyksen's Theory silk blouse - Now US$147.50
