Every new season requires some preparation. For a girl who's into fashion, this preparation consists in stocking up on that season's wardrobe essentials. In my case the scenario is always the same: Several weeks before the beginning of the season in question, I get flooded with pictures of what trendy people will be wearing during the next three months. By the beginning of the season I will have decided on which trends suits my style and which don't. After mentally checking my wardrobe I set up a list of things that I don't have yet, but absolutely want to wear that season. And then the endless lookout for the perfect wardrobe staples begins.After checking every single store and online shop I have ever been a customer of, and a bunch of stores and online shops I will never become a customer of, I give up on the idea of ever finding the pair of shoes or the coat or the pants I really like. And then comes the moment when I enter one shop where I find it all. (Insert angelic choir song here.)
Last spring this dream-fulfilling store turned out to be Mango. So you would say that this year Mango was my first place to go, right? Nope. Not only had I forgotten that the range at Mango is pretty awesome, but I wasn't even sure anymore that we even have a Mango in Luxembourg. Like seriously brain, why are you letting me down like this?
Luckily enough I came across our fabulous Mango store on Saturday, having about 10 minutes left before my train would leave. As a new coat was my most urgent purchase, I quickly tried on all the coats and decided on this dark blue gorgeousness in like 2 minutes. Furthermore this soft turtleneck was hanging all alone on a rack so I decided to give it a new home. On my way to the changing rooms I then came across this pinafore dress, which convinced me that it would look super good with the turtleneck. After a power-changing-session and an impatient wait at the checkout, I had bought three of my most wanted fall staples in record time (and even caught my train!).
