When Topshop first came to Vancouver, I was extremely excited to finally have this fashionable brand in my home city and within easy reach. However, after I had gotten over my initial awe of the giant store's shiny interiors and flashy decor, I was disappointed to discover that the Vancouver store was drastically overpriced. This should have come as no small surprise as everything in Vancouver seems to be inflated to a price much higher than its actual value. Luckily, as the store lost its novelty and finally seemed to realize that its sweaters aren't worth $80, the clearance racks started to grow and grow until those pink price tags and signs could no longer be ignored by this shopaholic. Since I work in close vicinity to that particular store, it shouldn't be a huge shock that my closet has become well-populated by all of the sales items found during my ventures into that dangerous territory. The 10% off student discount doesn't help either...
Anyways, in this post I decided to wear this newest acquisition of abstract print harem pants. Harem pants and other loose-fit trousers have become my latest obsession and I find myself buying them at almost every opportunity (an intervention in the near future would probably be wise). Since I got this piece for just a few cents over $15, I highly suggest that y'all check out the clearance section at Topshop as the clearances are seriously bad (in a good way).
P.S. Apologies for the slightly late post, I was busy enjoying a thoroughly wonderful weekend full of love, friendship, and delicious food (Happy Belated Valentine's Day!). Furthermore, all attempts to get some blogging done were thwarted by the attention-sucking matrix that is Homeland-- I'm obsessed and can't stop watching that show!
