Zouk Flea SCORE!

Very quickly, let me introduce you to some new members of my closet.

An asymmetrical dusty blue top. $10

Love the buttons and the ruching. (:

A pleather vest. $8

This belongs to my sister but I included it anyway, an alldressedup top. Buttons and all still intact. $5

And my favourite…

Wave print A | X short dress. $10(!!!)

I’m so proud of this buy. Can you sense me beaming away :D:D:D!

And for $1. I picked up these 2 books. After I read up for my Japan trip. I’ll get to these (((:

$1 & $2 Goodness SPAM

Jo and I participated in Flea Titan on a whim and in an attempt to clear our closet plus to get some moolah (for more beautiful things).

Damn the economic crisis.

I was a bit busy and preoccupied to take during and after shots of the flea so I only have before shots to share…

We had some technical difficulty setting up the rack.

But thankfully it held up!

(At the booth next to ours, the rack literally broke! 0.0! and adjacent to our booth, their rack kept swaying :/)

Picture 021

Our table + rack. Fully utilized.

Picture 022

Everything in the bucket/tub went for $1 each. (and there were ppl still trying to bargain and be fussy at $1. seriously?! hahas)

Towards the end, in her bid to not bring home her stuff was giving her stuff away, shouting ‘Free shoes! Free clothes!!!’ and I swear everyone within earshot froze in their tracks and stared at her in disbelief. hahas. it was quite funny.

All in all a fun day… even though food was nightmarishly expensive!

Thank you for supporting Wottoncool’s $1 and $2 goodness! (:

Titanic of a weekend

The Easter weekend is gonna be a busy one for both of us!

_______________

Thursday 9 April & Friday 10 April

Tampines 1
Opens TOMORROW! More retail and gastronomic goodness comes to the East (where neither of us live, but will frequent because of the great new concepts and new brands opening). Check out the Tampines 1 blog here and play the Spring to Life game to win vouchers or a Sony Vaio Notebook!

Uniqlo
Need. We. Say. More. I’m going back on Thursday when it opens. I wanna change one of the pieces that I got on Monday. They’ve got 30 day exchange policy. Unlike most of the super ngiao (miserly) 3 or 7 days that local stores usually give. Isn’t that wonderful? (:

uniqlosurprise

Be sure to get your daily dose of Uniqlo Surprise from here. You might win wallpapers, discount vouchers, or even a trip to Tokyo!

I only got the limited edition wallpaper today… Better luck tomorrow!

Saturday 11 April &  Sunday 12 April

The Flea Titan @ Mt Sophia
Why Titan? Because this flea promises to be the largest flea market ever (locally??? I’m not sure) as it congregates sellers from Singapore and KL for two afternoons of procurement of (potentially purposeful – if you convince yourself enough for some of the items) paraphernalia.


It will be held at Old School, 7 Mt Sophia. Pretty inaccessible by foot, if you ask me. Mostly due to the presence of never-ending slopes and stairs… but there will be shuttle buses to ferry lazy people (all fingers to Jo) from Plaza Singapura!

More information here.

My sister will be participating in this flea and she’ll be selling lots of delectable delights such as a pair of patent Doc Martens and some secondhand (but still very desirable) items. She kindly volunteered to help me sell some items too, so make sure you go down!

Take a look at what she’ll be selling here.

_______________

Then comes the less-than-savoury part of our weekend: Studying. Sarah’s got examinations and Jo’s got presentations next week. Boo.

This weekend is so much of a Titanic that we had to plan and write it out to sort out our thoughts. Still, we’re eagerly waiting for Fashionation‘s Things to Do this Weekend to add to our list! 😀

Did I just make you open nearly ten tabs on your browser? Bwahaha. What will you be busy with? (:

And please email if you have interest in ‘tompang-ing’ (being a vendor at the NEXT garage sale!) 😀

We’ve been in the garage

Exams are over, boyfriends are in camp, school’s out, yada yada yada – there’s no reason why we shouldn’t be blogging, but we just haven’t felt fit to labouriously labour over a post. We’re enjoying holidays/pre-internship a little too much!

We miss the comments, the feeling of going to our dashboard and seeing new comments, checking our gmail and finding new stuff in our inbox and all that jazz. (Aw we are lovey-needy people LOL)

Anyway.

You can now join us in SARAH’s GARAGE SALEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Date: 7th Dec 2008, Sunday

Fash Bash again!

If you hadn’t had your fill at the previous Fash Bash, it’s back again even before you can say “When can we manoeveur the crazy crowds and dangerous deals at Fash Bash again?!” Alright, that was a bit long.

deckthehalls

So that’s happening on Saturday, 6 December, from 5pm to midnight and a spanking new location that is The Cathay! I think it’s at the atrium outside the box office.

I’m pretty adamant about making it there before 5pm so that I can scramble to Baylene and Hansel and Swirl and a new addition – Epitome, ASAP! You hear me? ASAP!

I’m thinking of conjuring up another 3 mini-me(s) to accomodate the madness and maximize shopping ability.

What are your plans?

Lots to love and lots to do

Tis the time for your money to sneak out of your wallet faster than your year-end bonus can come in. Though some of you may be thinking… WHAT BONUS? RECESSION/BAD ECONOMY/HORRID PERFORMANCE/RETRENCHMENT! Gasp.

Still, you know you’d wanna make it to the many money-sucking events at the end of the year because you’ll never get as good a deal. Ah, the human (or woman?) psyche.
