Colombo Flea Market 

 I participated in the Colombo Flea Market today and here are a couple of snaps:

Clothes
   
 
Earrings

Sold pretty much 50% of everything I took and donated the rest to the welfare society. I actually feel lighter and better now that I’ve given away stuff I do not use or wear anymore. Was certainly a good experience and will probably participate next time as well.

Newbies this week at Mondy

Shopping in Colombo is actually very limited but one of my favourite stores happen to be Mondy.

I find that the available styles and designs really suit women of all ages and sizes, and the variety most suitable. A section of their store also houses kurtas and tunics and I absolutely love heading there first whenever I visit. I have mentioned shopping at Mondy’s on more than a handful of occasions so have a look at the pieces of clothing I bought from them here, here, here, here, and here!

Their most recent collection of clothing was just released and I had to highlight some of my favourite looks:

Clothing haul!

Recently I’ve been doing a lot of shopping for clothes, also because I’m leaving for Hajj in a matter of two weeks, and I need a couple of staple pieces to take with me. Amidst all of that, I have also been buying some extra clothing pieces to wear when I get back because… well, because I just can’t help myself! I used to shop a LOT at Odel but of late I have been going to Cotton Collection a hell of a lot as well my other favourite store Mondy. So I’ll be showing you guys some of the clothing items I got 😀

Pants, pants, pants and pants!
Pants, pants, pants and pants!

I can’t help myself when I come across cotton pants. I got four of the same type in different colours simply because they are too soft and comfortable when worn. They are also a loose fit so I will be taking these with me to Saudi. Here’s a closer look: (oh please don’t mind the crease!)

I got these pants from Cotton Collection for just about Rs. 1,600 each which I think is a really good price for something that’s super soft, comfortable and easy on the eyes.

I love shopping at Mondy simply because they have a good understanding of body types and sizes unlike some of the other stores. Their clothes always fits so well on me and looks just as great which is why I continue going there. Here’s a look at what I got from there:

I don’t own anything in this shade so I knew I had to have it the moment I saw it. Plus, I did purchase two palazzo pants some time back and I thought this would really go well with one of them. It’s got cute frill detail on the shoulders, a little pocket highlighted with a black rim and more detail on the back that you can pull back and tie into a bow. It’s unfortunately got like the longest ever sleeves but I plan to fold them over a couple of times when wearing them so that it does not look sloppy on me. This retails for about Rs. 2,000-2,600.

Tunics

The one of the right is another I got from Mondy whilst the left and one in the middle are gifts from my mum who took a trip to India a few weeks ago and bought them at my favourite store – Global Desi. All three have unique prints on them which I love and can be worn for different ocassions. I do not know how much the tops from India retail for but the blue and white from Mondy retails between Rs. 1,800-2,400.

So what’d you think? 🙂
