Hello all,

I am so happy, as i am now doing bikram yoga almost everyday, i feel my body toned down and i can wear my old clothes again! Also bikram has greatly diminished my shopping appetite!!!

So pls allow me to jump back to the quality-over-quantity wagon and try to attain max 10 items until june ends.

1. I want a ruby ring « not sure if i will buy it this year as it's'not priority, but it's'been on my wishlist for ages. And i dont have ring with yellow gold anyway, so ruby + yellow gold sounds nice
2. Watch « bicolore chain « another item that has been on my wishlist for ages
3. White blouse « i dont have any!!!
4. Coloured blouse
5. Nude wedge « has ordered from my favourite shoe designer (local)
6. Navy strappy shoes « for work :-)

*cant think about anything else atm*
3.



Apart from that, i need to stock on socks and yoga top (i consider this as basic since i use it everyday)

@Floodette: welcome back!

Went to check out a stam bag today. Was not impressed at all. Good for my economy, sad since I was really counting on it to be THE bag. However, even though I coould fit my belongings in it the kiss-lock opened all the time. So no bag for me ATM.

I actually saw a bag recently that I'd really really love to have. It's more of a small bag for evenings and such though. I don't really own one for such occasions but I'll have to think whether I want to spend on something I don't need 100% even if I think it's one of a kind. Well, I have to hold myself back for the moment anyway, so maybe time will solve the problem by selling the bag out before I can put my hands on it. I really have learnt during the last year that "out of stock" isn't the same thing as "the end of the world".

Floodette: That sounds great with the bikram yoga! I totally think these kind of things can lessen shopping appetite!

That sounds very exciting! I want to seee! Maybe in a private message - promise I wont buy it I really know how you're feeling though. I think I would get more use out of a big bag, but since I can't find one I want I should might as well wait, since I don't need it NOW.

floodette, my aunt recently gave me a ruby necklace that is something I never would have bought for myself, but I've really been enjoying wearing it. Sometimes something completely different is nice for a change ...

I've gotten some things from Adin before, and so has a friend ... she was very pleased. Here's one of their ruby rings (Victorian) ...

RedandNavy, I have never spent more than $100 on an evening bag (unless you count the one I carry as a wallet, and then I have ) I haven't yet been able to justify the expenditure, given that often I carry my regular bags in the evening. I did see quite a lovely one from Nina Ricci ...

Thanks for the warm welcome, redandnavy, betinnapple and ta-ta.

Ta-ta, the ring is very nice! Thank you also for the adin recommendation.

Redandnavy: what color of the evening bag that you eyed on? I found that i need two, one for silver jewellery and one for gold.

*it seems that i am obsessed with having silver and gold color for everything hahaha*

I got myself a sweet bargain yesterday. I wanted this cardigan for months, but I felt it wasn't worth the price (US$ 157), even though it's pretty much my style and in a colour I've been longing to introduce to my yearly wardrobe. Long story short, I got a 78% discount on it (50% from a season sale plus a discount from a loyalty programme) and it ended up costing me only US$ 35. If I'm not mistaken, this is my first wardrobe purchase this year.

I ordered another pair of my favourite ballet flats today, so I can cross them off of the list... I am also eyeing off this Jason Wu for Target US blouse, but I'm going to have to hunt it down on Ebay when it's not so darn expensive...

The ballet flats look really good and lovely.

Also love the blouse! Very stunning and perfect colour.

Belowen, i have the same idea. waiting around a few months for the ebay hype for jason wu to die. i have my eye on the blue wheel dress that alexa chung wore in vogue. it was an online only item (same with the blue blouse you wanted i think)

i love the ballet flats as well.

So it is confirmed that I've been good. I just came back from 10-day trip to London, Aberdeen and HongKong. Usually trips throw me into buying frenzy, but I think I behave quite nicely this time.

I did buy two sets of thermal clothes (hey, am a tropical girl!!) and some tshirts for yoga. I also get replacement for jeans (my old ones are already too big thanks to Bikram, and also the price is way cheaper for exact same models+brands+colors in London).

My frivolous spending (if I can say it) is one mason pearson brush, and a greatly discounted zara dress (hey, 10 gbp compared to 80 usd in my place!!!!) that I just can't resist! And one set of work clothes (blazer + pants) from maje that suits my new size.

I can cross out "watch" from my list for the time being, as I fall madly in love with a watch (it's iconic bangle from burberry btw, will try to find a pic later). It's silver not bicolore, but I love the simple shape so much. Besides I still have my black movado one.

So that's it forr me, no new bag, no new shoes. I think little by little I will be able to really curb my spending. My shopping list may seem a lot to you, but for me with my eenie meenie self control it's actually an achievement :-)

Between now and next autunm/winter I need:

Good pair of jeans (next to impossible, not looking forward to the search).
Leather sandals.
New trench coat (my old one pulls horribly at the shoulders).
Perfect all-year-round black pants, which will work both formally and casual.
A tiny yet beautiful necklace.

Doesn't sound like much, but it will break the bank no doubt.

^ I too have noticed how one can spend quite a lot on just 4-5 items

That's great you found a watch you really love, floodette. A great item to spend $$$ on since you can get so much use from it ...
