The year of the tiger is over and the year of the rabbit has begun! And what better way to celebrate the ending of the year of the tiger and the beginning of the year of rabbit than with this beautiful top that I found with the imprint of a tiger on it? Ironically enough, the day I stumbled upon this top was Chinese New Years Eve...the last day of the Year of the Tiger before we usher in the Year of the Rabbit.
The story really is quite funny because originally the only reason I was in mall was because I needed new underwear (and NO....you will not be getting any pic of those). After finding an amazing deal for "undies" where I got 2 for the price of $10 CDN, I decided to take a stroll. I wasn't intending to purchase anything more.....it was just a browse.
My favorite Argentine designer is called Rapsodia. Rapsodia is known for clothing that has a free flowing bohemian designs. Rapsodia is also known for having a high price tag on it's products. As well, like alot of clothing shops in Argentina, the majority of the clothing is tailored made for sizes 4-6. Being a girl who tends to be a bit more "busty" and who definitely sports a stomach, already in Canada shopping for clothing is difficult enough. Knowing that Argentina caters to certain body type, I certainly had no intention of running around to a million stores trying my luck to see if by the off chance any of them had something would not only fit me but would look good as well.
But that afternoon in the mall, heaven smiled and all the stars position in perfect alignment and I met my destiny hanging on a clothing rack in Rapsodia. I went into the store simply to have a look and all the new stuff in their collection this season. The moment I walked in, this top was the first thing I saw. I ignored it and proceeded to ask the girl if they had any clothes in sizes for a girl with my body type. The employee put together a selection of clothing and this shirt was one of them.
I stepped into the dressing room and tried out the clothing from the selection she gave me. I guess it must have been my destiny to purchase this top because none of the others really fit me and this was the only one that not only fit but looked flattering as well. And if that wasn't enough to convince me that this was the one, the price tag was pretty much sealed the deal. $219 pesos for the top which is $55 CDN. $55 for a top that is designer brand that looks & feels good and compliments my body type.
Lions and tigers and bears.......OH MY!!!!!
