THE sale is only two months away

In this winter, I have to face the fact that fashion prices have gone way up and I cannot afford designer pieces at full price. I have to shop strategically.

In fact, I don't plan to make any major purchases before the sale starts. It doesn't mean, however, I stop shopping. I go to stores to complete my "wish list", and I will wait until the price is reduced. At the same time, my dear sales associates have to wait for a little longer to receive their commission. (Sorry!)

I have been shopping for a coat for a while. A coat is my most important purchase for the winter, and it has to be gorgeous. I mean really gorgeous. I tried on a fitted A-line coat at the Louis Vuitton store, and I instantly fell in love with it. But no thanks. I have a mortgage to pay and I want to live decent life after I retire. Louis Vuitton never has price reductions, so the coat will be just living in my dream.

Half of the Yohji Yamamoto Fall '05 runway show was filled with coats. With Yohjiss architectural approach to clothing making, it is almost the best bet to find THE coat. I called the boutique and Megumi, a sweet Japanese sales girl, offered me a service called "on approval". She will send me a couple of coats by overnight mail, and I then I'll simply keep the one I want and return the ones I pass. It is a very considerate service for the people who do not live in New York, and the $35 shipping fee is less than the tax on any of the coats. I was so tempted to buy one of the coats from the collection, but $3,000 is a lot of money, and I will hate myself if the one still exists when the sale starts. After all, the sale is only two months away.

With so much hope on the sale, I listed the following major items in my wish list ordered by priority:

  • THE coat from one of the coolest designers such as Yohji Yamamoto, Alexander McQueen, Roland Mouret, and Rick Owens.
  • Anything from Ann Demeulemeester (my friend Faust has made me addicted to her clothes. They are just so me)
  • One of the Marc Jacobs short jackets with a Peter Pan collar
  • Slim pants from Balenciaga
  • Anything from Roland Mouret
  • A dress or skirt from Lanvin
  • A skirt or something lovely from Chanel

Let's see how my strategy works out, and we'll revisit my list in December.
