I have been stalking a dress.
That dress! The one Anne Curtis is wearing. I saw that huge poster around the last few days of November.
Asked for the said dress. It was still unavailable.
So, I bide my time waiting for the dress… went to different malls to look for it. Nothing.
Kei suggested we try looking at Shangri-la Mall. (this mall seems to have most of the stuff we are looking for) So we went.
We learned that the dress I want is is named Tokushima, from the Modern Metropolis collection. A limited edition and is already sold out.
So with no Tokushima dress on sight I looked for the other dresses from their Modern Metropolis collection. Two caught my eye. The Johannesburg and Moscow.
Tried them on and got the Johannesburg, as Kei likes it better than the other.
So, off I went, happy to get a dress. But I still wanted to see and try on the Tokushima.
Not one to give up, I tried calling all the branches of their store to look for the coveted dress. Again I was told that it is a limited edition, and apparently they made 50pcs for their preview, and another 50 was distributed to the other stores. Only 100 dresses are made. Tokushima was only made in sizes s, and xs.
My chances are slim. Only one Tokushima dress is left. In xs (my size!) and it is reserved.
Arrrggghhhh! Oh well, but still hopeful …we left our number. In case the one who reserved it did not get the dress.
After a day we got a call from Plains and Prints Greenbelt. It is now reserved to me!
Along with Kei we went to get the Tokushima. Once in my hands I was a bit surprised that the Tokushima is not white but a pale shade of lilac grey. (was fooled by the posters!) But I like lilac. So it is not a problem for me. I went on to fit the dress and it did fit nicely.
The attendants also wanted me to try on their Madrid dress.
Madrid was the one they kept recommending to me when they learned that I was looking for the Tokushima. I liked the color of madrid but it looks poofy on me. When I tried it on, I look shorter than the usual so, even if its pretty, its a no for me.
I got the Tokushima. Finally.
I got two dresses. The Johannesburg from Shangrila in the medium sized orange box with three ponds freebies inside! And the Tokushima from Greenbelt in the small green box.
*Price? 1898php per dress.
