Outlet shopping is one of my favourite things. I love designer goods for their excellent craftsmanship and legacy but I can’t always justify buying most items at full price. I only go about twice a year to see whats available without any expectations or wish list as they might not have what you want. Its really hit and miss, sometimes you’ll fall in love with something, other times (more often than not) you’ll walk away empty handed so it’s best that you keep an open mind. Its like vintage shopping or thrifting, it’s fun because you don’t know what you might find, you could find a rarity and a gem or that tired looking piece that you tend to see every time you go, like the Charlotte Olympia shoes that sit on shelf: Size 38 and 39 which look like they are screaming for someone to take them home. The poor things look so dusty and battered from all the try-ons that their shelf life will soon expire.
So last week the family did an Ap Lei Chau trip for the usual outdoor furniture shopping, board game shopping and fashion outlet shopping. We started at the top, at the Lane Crawford outlet and worked our way down One Island South Outlet shopping mall. Hubby and I came across some gorgeous Saint Laurent Classic Janis 105′ Chain detail Pumps for about 75% off. They were gorgeous and without a scratch or dent on the leather, in my size and in pristine condition. The Janis Pump is a YSL classic and the chain detail just added a more rock and roll vibe to them- right up my street. So they came home with me thanks to my husband!
