Finding this Jil Sander

Earlier this day, my nephew and I went to the market place to reserve and buy a cake for my parents’ 32nd wedding anniversary. We had to return after 20 minutes or so to let them finish the writing of the dedication, so I just decided to go around the area. Just a few meters from Goldilocks, I saw this Ukay, which I haven’t visited for a very long time.

It is the Philippines’ version of Goodwill, only that they are not non-profit organizations and operating as private businesses. Well, I can’t remember when was the last time I have thrifted and it won’t hurt to just go around a bit.

Luckily, I was able to find one interesting item (for Php 50 — just a notch above a dollar, imagine that) and I need not go much further:

After getting home and washing the item thoroughly, I have tried it on and the first thing I thought of was “Wow, Jil Sander really does make clothes for ridiculously skinny guys!”. It fits me well enough but I am no longer comfortable wearing small-sized clothes, compare to what I was about four years ago.

Of course, I will keep it but it’s either I’ll be losing more weight just to confidently use the item without the unnecessary self-consciousness or just use it on colder days when light layering is possible. I’m now gravitated towards the former. Just kidding.
