Christmas is an odd time for me. I do rather intense amounts of shopping but can't post about my triumphs until the recipients actually open their gifts. Similarly, I also can't bear to blog about the items I passed on, lest my friends wish I'd opted for the runner-up. This frustrates me.
Equally unraveling is attempting (often unsuccessfully) to avoid buying anything for myself while Christmas gift shopping. Made worse in no small part by the plethora of incentives being offered as we enter the last stretch of yuletide cheer. Case in point: Homegrown label Raoul's delicious leather and silk tee in warm maroon/cognac combination at only US$114 (about S$145) after Shopbop's further 20% off their 50-70% off sale selections. The code 'EXTRA20' is valid until 11.59PM PT on Thursday 15 December.
I've been lusting after an decently affordable leather tee for seasons now which is its primary allure. Equally - I don't know about you - but the fact it squeaks past their US$100 minimum spend to qualify for free international shipping (read: one needn't chuck random bits & bops to bolster the cart's value) is adding to my conundrum.
Maybe there's time to pop over to Raoul's boutique to confirm sizing - who are having up to 40% off instore anyway - or I should just cave now & pray the sizing works? Such difficult decisions all before I even get into the office...
