Hey ladies! As promised, a short update on my hauls from the Great Love, Bonito Sale 2013 🙂
I was invited as a VIP to the sale via e-mail about two weeks before the event and that came as a surprise to me because I didn’t know I had spent so much at Love, Bonito 😛 They didn’t reveal the criteria for the selection but I guess the amount I spent should be the deciding factor. Anyway when the e-mail landed in my inbox I still furrowed my brows, thinking that it was a repeated mail as LB had mass-sent a notification about the sale beforehand and I almost wanted to trash it without reading. LOL! The shopaholic in me must have stopped me from doing so!! *phew*
I had the choice of attending on the first (19 July, Friday) or second (20 July, Saturday) day of the event. Because I had work on Saturday and I knew it was going to be very crowded on a weekend, I chose the first day! And I was also allowed to bring a friend along! Since I was returning from Batam with my Bf, of course my Bf had to come along with me to help carry my stuff while I shopped HAHAHA
As you might have read previously, I went directly to Novotel Clarke Quay from Batam so I was carrying many barang barangs with me. I could feel all eyes were on me when I arrived LOL. It’s alright I think no one knew me there, I hope.
So when I reached at 8.30am (event started at 11.00am for non-VIPs), there were already 3 lines of queues formed and I stupidly joined the queue without realising that there was another one for VIPs just next to it. Anyway I was there early because the first 100 customers to arrive would be given a goodie bag each worth $150. Being Singaporean, how could I miss such a deal? HAHAHA But once again, I didn’t realise VIPs were ALL given goodie bags regardless of how late they arrived -_- So I gave up my goodie bag ticket to Bf’s friend who happened to sit next to us and wasn’t among the first 100th customers (you lucky girl).
Before doors opened to the VIPs (sorry if I sound very haughty but this is the shortest term to describe people who were given the exclusive invitation) we were invited to have some refreshments at the front! Wow lovin’ the VIP treatment! 🙂
We were then given the green light to enter the ballroom 1 hour before the actual sales event started! Rachel, one of the co-owners of Love, Bonito kindly allowed us to leave our huge backpacks and barang barangs at the reception so that we could shop with ease! So nice of her!
There were less than 50 customers including Bf and I in the ballroom when we first entered and it was awesome! We had the entire ballroom of clothes all to ourselves and we snapped up all the nice apparels without breaking a sweat! Yay I love being a VIP!!
Xiaoqing couldn’t make it on both days of the sale so she asked me to get clothes for her. So while shopping for my stuff, I also gave her live updates via Whatsapp LOL! I took pictures of the dresses I picked for her and asked if she wanted them.
While rummaging the racks, there was a Browhaus and Strip goodie bag giveaway and to win it, one had to go up on stage to answer a simple question. Bf lured me to the front and made me go up on stage -_- No one else bothered about the giveaway because they were too busy picking out clothes! Hahaha GOOD FOR ME! So yes, the first giveaway winner of the sale was me 😛
What’s inside the goodie bags:
What I bought 😀
Unlike the previous LB sale events I went to, I didn’t see any BonitoChico clothes anymore which was great! Because honestly I wouldn’t even want to pay $10 for something that’s outdated.
As you can see I really had a great time at the sale. But being VIP (same goes to other VIPs too) would also mean that we’d spent a lot at every launch so we probably already own many of the stuff sold at the sale. I was actually looking for Tasha Toga but I didn’t see it there 😦
That’s all 😀
