Galaxy

They say April Showers bring May Flowers, but I say May Mails predict June Sales... It's the time of year where rampant sample sales sprout out in otherwise abandoned studio spaces all around London. Yours truly has had quite the joy reaping and exploiting these mad discounts (actually, more like they were exploiting me). Ever since the DSM sale, I've been craving more, but the thrill just wasn't wild enough to quench my lust for over-the-top shopping every now and then. Either improving my skill of strategic shopping has in fact numbed me or I just don't get off on the three-dimensional shopping experience anymore (as in you just want to buy, not shop). I love sample sales like comic-book nerds love Sci-fi conventions, but is it me, or have anyone else realised that London's shopping circuit (especially these sample sales) have been dominated by gaysians and their hags? I'm scared....

Even though I didn't leave yesterday's JW Anderson's sale empty-handed, the selection was so limited and the studio room so tiny the experience was just awful. Like trying to maneuver around 30 people in a cramped walk-in-closet, yuck.... And some bitch took the jacket that I was gonna buy.... But, I was pleased with Christopher Kane's sample sale. There weren't much of a wide selection, but they were the right ones. Managed to leave with some SS11 galaxy printed pieces and two aqua clutches (since I couldn't decide which one I wanted more, as always). Also got the chance to briefly meet other UK bloggers at the sale. It's silly but it was quite surreal seeing them in person after seeing them simply through pictures. Kind of like when you meet your friend's friend for the first time and you recognize their face during your Facebook photo stalking sessions.

  2. This post had me laughing! I would have taken that jacket right from her hands and ran, ha ha. That is so cool that you got to meet other UK bloggers, it's kind of surreal to meet people you met on the web.
    Love your style Nathan!

  4. I totally agree about J Dubz, I went last season and the experience was so horrible that i won't be returning until they move it somewhere else!! That, and I left with a mohair jumper that's way too small for me. Lesson learned!

    Your making me wish that I left with a galaxy print tee, it looks so amazing on you! So glad I got the jelly clutch. It feels like we own a piece of history! I also have that McQueen knuckle duster, from the sample sale a few seasons ago (you too?)
