Going down the escalator at Far East Plaza, I spot a peach chiffon blazer at a shop
I approach the shop, ask the sales assistant, “Can I try this blazer?”
I try the blazer on, turn to Imran and ask him, “Is it nice?”
Imran replies, “It’s very you!”
I look in the mirror, satisfied with the affirmation, and declare, “Ok i’m getting it!”
I head to the cashier to pay, but while reaching for my wallet, Imran whips out his card instead
All that happened in less than 3 minutes and a girl in the shop sniggered to herself when I left the shop. she must have thought I was the most impulsive shopper she had ever met in her life. And the cashier was really taken aback at how quick the purchase was, I bet she wished every shopper was like me: sales guaranteed with no customer service required!
When we left the shop, Imran told me that girl in the shop was actually his classmate (perhaps that’s why he offered to pay). I felt so embarrassed after he told me that. What a way to make an impression man, now I’ll probably be known to his classmate as the “impetuous shopper-girlfriend who makes her boyfriend pay for her shopping”. What a dreadful title.But, it technically wasn’t that impulsive (I swear)! I’ve always wanted a peach chiffon blazer, and this was pretty much what I had imagined in my mind. Plus since I felt good wearing it, why not eh? I paired this blazer with my Missypixie white top, Missypixie denim high-waisted shorts, grey loafers from Malaysia, and ring from Jipaban.com
So, here are the morals of today’s story guys:
1. Know what you want beforehand so you can make a quick and decisive purchase – but not that quick, pretend to browse through the store for a while more, unless you want to be thrown a “this b**ch be crazy” stare like the one I received from Imran’s classmate.
2. Never travel down to the ground floor via escalator in Far East Plaza – head to the lift straight away to avoid any eye contact with possible impulsive purchases.
