I Fits Again

By Sarah Aterrado - February 10, 2019

Jan and I went shopping for down jackets at Uniqlo yesterday. We were quite pleased that they got almost everything on sale.

He scored an ultralight down jacket for only P1,990. Not bad, I must say. And he was quick to shop. Unlike me, I was torn between colors that it took me quite some time to choose. Picture this, if we were in the battlefield, Jan already got his target acquired with a shot gun and his finger on the trigger. I, on the other hand, will be killed before I even got to choose what weapon to use (mind you, by standards, I shop faster than 90% of girls).

The women's jackets were also down to only P1,490. But I never really thought both excitement and frustration can occur to me at the same time. While almost everything was on sale, the jacket that came in my favorite color was still tagged at a regular price (P3,490). Bummer.

There's no way I'm going to buy a 3k worth of item that I could use probably once or twice in every two years. I was about to settle halfheartedly for the cute red one (don't get me wrong, I love red) when I, like any other female, hopped from one rack to another at the risk of buying more things I don't apparently need.

And I'm glad I did.

I found the same jacket in my favorite color at the kid's section for only P990!

Yes, folks. It's definitely a steal. It does pay off to fine-comb every rack inside the store sometimes (Jan should take this as a hint that from now on, shopping may take a little more time than they used to). I was on a roll that I also bought two HeatTech long sleeves for only P290 each (this is worth P790-990 at the women's section).

I am so happy with my purchases. Everything fits me well. Jan paid more with his down jacket than my jacket and two thermals combined. Tikasan (cheat) was all he could utter. Haha!
