Whatever the excuse (a transportation glitch, meeting that gets over early, hunger pangs), finding yourself in a shopping mall on a working day with all the shops pretty much to yourself (and kids not around!) can be a fun experience! In my case, I’m not adept at shopping alone and I’m certainly no fashionsita, but window shopping I enjoy a lot! And people watching too!
I did end up buying footwear though, since clothes were out of bounds (on a diet, can’t buy clothes till I reach my target weight!). Here are some pictures I took using my iphone.
Holidays are here and mom-and-kid combos trawl the malls to take respite from the 46 degree heat outside. The VK malls get a fair number of expat footfalls. This kid was adorable; the moment formed a perfect foreground for the Kuoni ad behind!
High quality window dressings make window shopping pleasurable. I noticed certain colors were really in this season, this particular orange-red being the one that most caught my eye!
The trendy brands are right there in front of you in this mall. Zara, Bebe, Promod, Mango, M&S, S Oliver…you take ten minutes to get the lay of the land!
The mandatory ice-cream stop for the kids. Missed them at this point!
The shades in vogue- salmon pink, lemon green, lemon yellow, the orange-red, tangerine, a prussian-navy sort of blue, cream..summer is here for sure
Walking out wearing my shopping!
I am an architect and urban planner, a writer and an aspiring artist. I love expressing myself and feel strongly that cities should have spaces for everyone--rich, poor, young, old, healthy and sick, happy or depressed--we all need to work towards making our cities liveable and lovable communities.
I have the same sandals! Woodlands, right?
And according to Pantone, the colour of the year for 2012 is tangerine tango. Interesting to see brands follow it. See it here: http://www.pantone.com/pages/pantone/category.aspx?ca=88
