Sales are for the middle class...

And the upper class do not hit Harrods around this fanatic time. Where do they go? They are mostly enjoying the sun in the Caribbean's, skiing away in some resorts and get pampered later...or, hunting in the wild?

For the first time I headed out on Boxing Day (last year I was boxing, yes, packing up around Christmas time), went to Harrods, coincidently, had their sales started on Boxing Day as well (they didn't usually start until the 28th, feeling the pinch now maybe?), triumphed the store (or not at all)...and left with some Myla and Princesse Tam Tam. I had all the Clarins half-priced skincare in my hands, and was too proud and pissed off, left them all and headed straight up to the lingerie department. Nothing is better than having fine lingerie.

Lots and lots of Orientals (not exclusively but mostly) were queuing from probably god-forbidden hours until 3 in the afternoon...there was still a long queue, believe me. For what? For Gucci. I almost wanted to cry. I sent a text to my friend and he said: All I can say is this is a sad world.

I agree. After that I was pretty much tired of the whole sales scene. Tired of myself being one of those...however the weather on that day was pretty pleasant.

A friend was right, during sales you will always end up buying stuff that you don't really need.

Well, that's is true. Hence I went to Tod's for twice, looked at the long pretty boots twice, and still, didn't buy them. I am not a boots person, although that being said, everyone keeps insisting that every women should have a pair of long boots.
Well, every women should have a Chanel LBD, no?

This year X'mas venture, chronologically:
Burberry wool/cashmere trench in burgundy, the best buy of all
a set from Myla, a set from Princesse Tam Tam
Chloe eau de parfum
Missoni gloves, always always love the Missoni patern
a pair of purple suede heels from Tod's
two L'occitane moiturisers and two Paul & Joe whitening moisturisers...can't go wrong with half price.

A year ago I was still in between the high street scene and the designer scene...now, think I have shifted.

Till then. x
