Poncho.

The other day I was telling you about my long quest for the perfect poncho that drove me to Primark on the first day of winter sales… I litterally blew a fuse there but at least I got out of there with my precious poncho that I’d been looking for almost everywhere…
And then 3 days after I unexpectedly poped out at Zara and stumbled upon this poncho, that ended up being pretty close to the Primark one with the colors. But it was like 50% off and looking like a true piece from the 70s that I love so much so I could not resist. In the end, this one looks way more to what I had in mind, the Primark one being more of a cape than an actual poncho (I don’t reject it though, and it was so hard getting my hands on it I’m certainly not going to spit on it !)
All of this to tell you that in 3 days time, my quest for the perfect poncho that took me at least 6 months ended up getting me from 0 to 2 ponchos. And I feel so great about that !

Primark or the Dread.

primark ou l'angoisse

After months and months looking for the perfect poncho, I ended up finding this one the first day of sales at Primark, which could mean I have suicidal tendencies I know, but the fact is that I found this poncho. The end justifies the mean, right ?!
Although, I do admit at some point I was very close to having a nervous breakdown there. I don’t think I can imagine a place more anxiety-inducing than Primark, even on a regular day, so during sales… Actually, I think we all pretty much agree on this since everyone that heard of my little excursion there asked me if I had some kind of mental problem.
I had none, but I did have a 100€ gift card I could use there, and let’s say it helps forget the dread… But thank god I did find some cool pieces over there… 😉
