DSF is here!

pardon me for not sharing this with you promptly, but the much-awaited Dubai Shopping Festival, or better known as DSF, had already begun last 24th January. yes, this thrilling shopping experience finally unfolded with tons of entertainment and festivities lined up for locals and tourists alike.

this is the time of the year when major shops in Dubai do their clearance sale. it’s a kind of shopping experience shopaholics love – discounts of up to 70% off! even the luxury brands join this annual event, too. imagine Saks Fifth Avenue and Harvey Nichols throwing in some great deals on most of the best brands they carry – Gucci, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade. wow, ain’t that uber exciting!!

now before you wonder which of these temptations i gave in to, the answer is none. the only purchases i made since the sale started were my spectacles, a generic knit sweater, a pair of driving shoes (for Ryan), and mobile phones for me & hubby (yes, we switched from Nokia to Sony Ericsson!). i am preventing myself from squeezing life out of my wallet for clothes, shoes and bags because we want to do another trip this year, apart from the holiday back to the Philippines planned for December.

save for a few items i want to buy for V-day (gift for hubby) and much needed make up in addition to my depleting stash, i will have to settle with window shopping this year and resist with all my might to spend for stuff i don’t really need.
