saturday is for shopping

I am starting to develop this manic habit of buying new clothes and accessories whenever there’s a party coming up, which here in Oslo, comes in like every week. With a birthday party to attend last night, I stormed the shops in one of Oslo’s more-exclusive shopping avenues called Bogstadveien, brimming with eye- and purse-popping boutiques.

My first stop was Zara, its only store in the whole of Norway and I picked up a hooded top from their S/S 2007 collection and a pair of shoes, which turns out to be my fifth for the year. Really, one can never have too many shoes. After that, a little stroll down the avenue found me in Tatler, which houses brands such as Filippa K, J. Lindeberg, Polo Ralph Lauren, Armani, and Paul Smith among others. I snapped a white down winter jacket from J. Lindeberg. I love all the details of this jacket, from the printed lining (with huge pixel fonts) to the inner pockets to keep your cellphone, wallet, and other stuff in place. Happiness.

And to think someone’s celebrating his birthday next Friday.

    I know, Paul!

    Thanks, Renny! Have a great one, too.

    Oh Chase dear, just buy the clothes now – a size or two smaller than you, then train/lose weight from there. Fitting into them is your motivation. Wise, no?
