If you think that it is too early to think about Holiday presents, wait till you read about my friend who started shopping for the Holidays since June. In fact, when I went to Ireland, she requested me to check out fabulous plus size lingerie at Marks & Spencer, reason being that Marks & Spencer (the store) is non existent in the Untied States. It’s a big wonder why this is, because M & S is located in over 300 stores worldwide excluding the 600 stores in the United Kingdom.
Too bad, I didn’t find something nice enough at M & S. I found something fab on our last day on a boutique inside the St. Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre. Because I was not that sure if my friend would consider a brand other than M & S, I had to call her first. Yes, I got the nod. She was more than happy when she saw my pick. It’s for her mother in law, and she wants nothing but a nice piece to give her this Christmas.
I’m glad I listened to my husband and considered to go back to the mall. Sometimes, we get too wrapped-up with big names/brands and forget that there are fabulous finds other than mainstream brands.
