Two weeks ago, I flew to the other side of the Pacific for a week-long summit in Sunnyvale then a side trip to my tita and tito's in Houston. Although this is my second time in US, I didn't get a chance to go sightseeing or check out the shopping scene the first time. So I jumped at the opportunity to extend my stay and have a little fun.
The first thing I did was ask my Tito to take me to Target - in search for Missoni mostly. Unfortunately, the only thing left in the Missoni rack was a pair of black pumps (in my size actually). But I wasn't so crazy about it. (On second thought, I SHOULD'VE picked it up since I hear Missoni for Target bids on eBay can pay for my future children's college education.) So I passed.
No worries though as Target carries lots of other affordable brands. (It's like a freakin' SM!!!)
Got this pair of skinny cargo pants on sale at USD$24 from Mossimo. Remember that brand Mossimo, btw? My all-time favorite denim skirt is from Mossimo. Do they still have the outlet in G4?
And because no American sightseeing tour is complete without it, I went outlet-shopping in Houston. Ha! I didn't buy the usual American outlet shopping staples like Coach or Polo Sport (not a fan!).
I did manage to get my hands on this utility vest from Liz Claiborne. It's a little pricier that I expected but it's perfectly well-made and I've been wearing this almost on a daily basis recently that I have ROI'd at this point.
In the next post I will show you the many different looks I've created with this utility vest - my favorite accessory at the moment!
