Before I explain what this is about, I’d like to tell you that this post is a little uncomfortable for me. Why? Scroll down. I might delete this post eventually and probably won’t try this again, but I wanted to see how this will fly. I love fashion and I care about what I wear, but I am not all that confident about my taste. With two kids, I have neither much budget to spend on myself nor time to go shopping, but when I get to do it, I do savor the time for shopping and when I find something I like, I try not to be too stingy. Anyways, since I enjoy seeing fashion blogs and I saw something like this before, I wanted to try it myself.
I went shopping at Zara today. It’s been over 2 months since last time I went shopping for myself. In fact, I went to Zara last time, too, but last time was in the U.S. and this time, it was in Jakarta, Indonesia.
So, here are the clothes I tried out and purchased. There is one that I did not end up with. Can you tell which one I didn’t pick? (The answer is the last one.) I have been trying to buy only thins I really need and love. I wrote that I don’t have much budget for shopping for myself. This is true even though some of you might think I’m contradicting and it looks like I did a binge shopping. No, not really. All of the items here except for the first item are on sale and I am very proud to tell you that I got bargains and most of them were around $15. (Edit: The first two dresses were more expensive. The first one was a regular price, so it was about $60 (Yeeek), but the second blue dress was $30.) I also picked this blue dress which is very unlike me. I like jeans and I used to not wear dresses a lot, but with the climate here in Jakarta, I find dresses more practical. I also wanted to try a new color that I don’t usually pick, so the blue dress joined my wardrobe. What do you think?
