So I am back after a long break riddled with writer’s block, illness in the family and general stress.
Not being the kind to be beaten up by any of these I managed to keep the curiosity in me flamed up and the fire going.
I am impulsive shopper, if I like something and think it’s worth the asking price I usually do not delay picking it up.
I had seen a similar cocktail hat in Paris. When I checked the price it was 85 Euros. I so coveted it but did not think that the price was justified, so with a heavy heart I walked away.
But for the months that followed that agonizing walk out (of the store) I kept hunting for the cocktail hat.
Online was as expensive as the one I had turned my back on.
Recently while shopping for general items in the market with my friend, we stopped at a small store to pick up knick knacks like hair clips etc, and next I know is the lovely hat is staring in my face. Almost pleading me to take it home.
I asked for the price and my jaw almost dropped when I was told it is equivalent to 3 Euros.
I quickly made the purchase as if a further delay would snatch it out of my hands.
Here I am waiting to wear it for the perfect tea party or to a derby but for now just enjoying wearing it.
