When it comes to shopping, I have always been a lone wolf. Albeit a happy one! I prefer going alone, and wrapping up my work quick. I usually am a fast shopper, and going with friends always means that I end up waiting for them to finish going through every single piece of clothing and turning the store upside down only to walk out with nothing. If given a chance, they would probably order new stock and reject that too. While I do love offering my opinion and helping them choose a perfect outfit, combining my own shopping agenda with theirs is a big no! Also in the list of big no-no’s while shopping are long queues at the trial room (standing for half an hour to try out one dress, which I know will never fit me is not the kind of retail therapy I look for), blaring announcements specially over the weekends, and the crowds! My best time for shopping has always been in the afternoons on weekdays, where I can be at peace and not have to feel like am trying to wade through a sea of people, all intent on stamping on my feet.So we decided to turn the whole ‘going shopping’ experience into a shoot in itself. With online shopping taking over our my life so rapidly, it felt like a good old trip to the mall deserved it’s own post, with actual window shopping, a lot of walking and a bite to eat! I wore a comfortable blue maxi dress and added a statement clutch by thepurplesack. Their collection of sling bags and satchels is extensive and colorful! Not to mention their range of home decor items (totally crushing on their coasters and cushion covers). So while I re-acquaint myself with the charm of an empty shopping mall and sales assistants descending upon me like vultures on their prey, you guys enjoy a trip through the mall with these pretty pictures shot by my awesomesauce photographer!
