Leopard Coat

I always wanted to have leopard coat. Not because I want to copy everybody else, but I am always falling in love with the leopard motif.  And guess what! 2 weeks ago my dream came true.

Is that Juicy Couture’s?  Donna Karan’s?  Michael Kors’? (shake my head  left and right 3x).
Then with a big smile I proudly say:

It’s no-brand coat  from WalMart (yipieee…).

I know some of you are allergic to WalMart. Sometimes, just to hear the name would give you an itchy feeling or goose bumps. Grocery or bathroom products would be okay, but clothing? No way!!!

I love WalMart, I can walk from aisle to aisle browsing cheap products for the home, gardening supplies, etc. Once in a while I get a cheap clothes from there. Hey! Don’t underestimate WalMart. Don’t judge a book by its cover.

Outfit Detail:

– Ann Taylor Dress – trifted- : $4.94
– Stuart Weitzman Shoes -trifted- :$4.94
– Walmart Coat : $ 17.00
– Handbag -eBay- : 10.00 (shipping not included)
– Forever 21 Bangles : $10.00 (hmm… how can this be more expensive than my dress?? not happy with this :(

note : I want to throw this pair of shoes away. I realized the size is 4.5 (mine is 5). My feet were screaming and wanted to come out of these tight shoes. If anybody wants these shoes please let me know. Just pay the shipping cost, I’ll be happy to send them to you.

Dancing Around

By the way. I noticed I got a lot of looks when we went to see the movie that day. I wasn’t sure if that those were dirty looks or adoring looks. They kept staring at my handbag and my coat.  It seemed they were curious to know where I got them (hehe..that’s just my interpretation).
Let’s just assume they like my coat. Do you think they know I got it from Wal Mart? I don’t think so, unless they saw it there.

Leopard Coat and Orange Handbag

What I’m trying to say is no matter what brand you are wearing, looking your best is what counts. Since there’s no pop up window that comes out of your body and says … Proenza Schouler bag, Juice Couture perfume, Michael Kors coat.  Nobody would know what label you are wearing unless you tell em. They can only guess. The key is how you present things.

As for me, I can care less for the brand name (Don’t get me wrong, I am definitely happy if someone gives me designer items. I will receive them with my whole open heart :o) ) as long as it feels good, looks good and is cheap,  I’ll get it. Once in a while I buy quality ones of course.

Leopard Coat

I like quality stuff too but there are so many cheaper stuff that high in quality too. Now it depends on your motif:

You buy expensive clothes because of quality, or you want to buy them to improve your life style, or you want to show off, or maybe you want to splurge and spoil yourself.  It’s good if  you can afford nice clothes but if you can’t afford them and force yourself to buy them till debt do us apart. That is sad.

I’m in the happiness mode here all the time, the more money women spent the better, the more stuff they buy the better.  That means, the more donation to  goodwill will occur. That also means the more stuff (with better selection) I can get without spending a lot of money.

Here’s a simple formula created by “Suzana Rowland” X Piggy Bank (for me) = Spending More (from others) – Donating More (from others)

Now tell me who’s smart?

Orange Handbag

Oh guess what? when we took this picture a man walking his dog (quite far from us) passed by us. The dog kept staring at me and kept pulling his leash toward us. And the owner shouted and told us, the dog wanted to be in the pic. The dog was named Truman.  He’s such a cutie and very smart too. I don’t have pet but he made me think about having one.

So Truman seemed to be falling in love with me for the first sight. I think he likes my WalMart coat too. Wish Truman had an email, I would email him this picture.
