Chic Shopping!

MAKING time for shopping in our busy schedule is always a challenge. Now it is hassle free and we can fit it in our busy schedule very easily. How? Well, I did not know till yesterday, when Iris, my personal shopper from DFS Singapore arranged for a Mercedes limousine to pick me up from my office and send me to DFS in the heart of Scotts Road in Singapore, the Shopper’s paradise of the world in the space of 18 minutes. Here, quaffing effervescent Veuve Cliquot Ponsardin yellow label NV champagne, an old friend of mine, I shopped for exclusive Marc Jacobs designer handbags, stunning sunglasses and leatherware, not for me personally , I might add, not being a poof, but for those near and dear to me. For the unitiated, Marc designs the Louis Vuitton range of bags for gentlemen and ladies, so coverted and sought after by the ‘nouveau rische’ of China and other countries. He also has his own label in glorious colours of cherry pink, mauve, ninja black and othe intriguing and stimulating colours, rarely seen in leatherware. The smell of premium Italian calf leather mingled with the aroma of Chervil from the cute canapes and baguette notes of the champagne to give me a very enjoyable shopping experience. Then, Iris, who is one of the nicest ladies you could ever meet, sent me to my dinner appointment in Lawry’s where they have the most scrumptious USDA beef and Yorkshire Pudding with beef jus around. In a mercedes limo, of course. Ah, as the poem goes, ‘Some are born to sweet delight…" Free yourself from the hassles of shopping, I strongly recommend DFS and its personal Shopper service. ENJOY! {:-)
