I love cardigans. Those light, not too bulky ones. They are one of my fashion staples coz they are so versatile.
It took me a few days of seesawing between buying and not buying because of my no shopping rule for these past three months. But I did check my closet and I found it wanting. I will also be traveling soon so I need some light cardigans to go with my basic tees and jeans. And I told myself to spend less and its not like I’m about to buy a pricey RhythmTech Performer Pack at musician’s friend.
Since I wanted to spend less, I didn’t visit the regular shops and boutiques. I went to Russian Market (Tuol Tompong Market in Phnom Penh) and raided the factory run shops. And what a treasure trove. I got 3 cardigans (two of them of the brand Zara heehaw!) and guess how much? $4 each. A super steal. All of them very good quality, with maybe a thread or two out of place but still looked nothing different from the ones that passed quality control. And its not like I’m gonna use it with microscope, noh?
Got 2 round neck with 3/4 sleeves, button down cardi and another dark blue with a really gorgeous draping. So, I’m a really happy shopping camper. $12 for three lovely cardigans.
