shopaholic

Before getting ready for my one-person LOST party, I ventured out for some heavy-duty facial sunscreen to prepare for the upcoming UV-onslaught that is lifeguarding in Florida. I had to go to the mall, so oops, I just happened to slip into F21 to see what's up. Whoops! I didn't mean to buy that cardi, jeans, and 3 pairs of hosiery. In my defense, they were very cheap and very interchangeable.

I found it...it actually exists...That's right, a long, slouchy, grandpa cardigan for under $50!!

It may not be as soft as Gap's or Urban's, but it was only $15 and nice & warm. I also picked up some dark gray skinny jeans for $20, and some tights & knee-his. They must have just gotten in a new shipment, because they usually NEVER have any tights left. I found a duplicate of these chevron tights modeled by sexy Johanna for only $6, along with basic black and sheer black patterned tights a la Blair.

Another Gossip Girl-inspired item I and almost bought, but I passed it up for now:
This is Serena from the Thanksgiving episode, and I have been obsessing over her jacket ever since. F21's version might be the only one I could ever afford, but I couldn't decide if it just looked too fake.

And will it go out of style soon? I am still tempted.

Cute cardigan, and a steal at $15! Hmmm, I can't put my finger on exactly what the difference is, but I don't love F21's version of the jacket as much as Serena's on the show.

Nice buys! I want more skinny jeans, but of color next time I have the extra wade of cash. And cute outfit, the yellow gives such summery excitement.

Have you ever realized that when you buy readymade suits you get a choice of only a few colors & styles, also finding the perfect fit are quite difficult? Wouldn’t it be better to choose from over 2000 different British & Italian fabrics and get a tailor made suit at a similar price that you pay for readymade suits?

We are a company based in Hong Kong and have been providing custom made suits & shirts since 1997. With representatives in major cities around the globe we can arrange to show you the fabric samples and take your measurements, or you can also place your orders online with the help of our measuring guide. There are over 2000 fabrics to choose from along with all the latest styles.

All our suits and shirts are produced by highly skilled Shanghainese tailors in Hong Kong and delivered in about 4 weeks, express delivery can be made in 2 weeks at a minor extra cost. In case you are not able to find what you are looking for then please let us know your requirement may it be in words or by a photograph and we could arrange it for you.

We also have an outlet at the Hotel Intercontinental Budapest where you are most welcome to visit us. Though we are not located in streets like Savile Row (London), we have still been able to offer made to measure suits to many VIP’s from around the world.
