Feeling the urge to shop, I took a trip to the mall today. I didn’t need anything, wasn’t looking for anything in particular. I just wanted to window shop, and perhaps buy something if I saw something great. Oftentimes when you are not looking, you find something fantastic.
But I had a hard time parking and once inside, the mall was crowded and loud. Too many people, too much quality time with the hoi polloi.
Selection in the shops was limited, the clothes had all been picked over and handled. The stores were playing loud music, kids were running around.
Overall, it was not a satisfying experience.
I ended up driving home disappointed. I went online and shopped the entire world instead. The only drawbacks to online shopping are that you can’t try on the clothes and sample the products, and you have to wait for them to be shipped. But the selection is fantastic.
Here are my purchases from gloss.com:
Chanel Nail Colour in Jasmine and Madness
Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Sparkling Satins
Chanel No. 5 Bath Gel and Essential Oils
I think I’ve outgrown the mall experience.
