ChicNCheap on Holiday

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on Tuesday, September 29, 2009 at 4:37 PM

(Thanks for the readers who have asked me if I ever put on more casual looks so this thread is some sort of the proper answer)

Most of us would rather travel in style but I did Bangkok in ChicNCheap with my friends earlier earlier this year. As seen here waiting the train traveling from Silom to the exciting Chatuchak market in RM20 H&M t-shirt found at the Reject Shop, an RM30 Billabong knee length short bought from FOS, a pair of 50% discount Armani Exchange slippers and the ever favorite monogram Gucci tote for a high-low mix and match

White Beaded-Collared British India Top for Women

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on at 4:22 PM

I couldn't help myself from loathing this particular brand for its ever ridiculous pricing for that kind of material and design (if somebody could explain why) but I am helping a friend to sell this pricey RM389 white beaded-collared British India top for women that she got it for free and unused as a gift. Please give me the best price via Thanks!


Black Zara Vested T-Shirt

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on Sunday, September 27, 2009 at 10:51 AM

My prayers for a further markdown on this black Zara vested T have been answered by the markdown from RM70 to RM50 during the seasonal clearance but the size is a bit off. I put it on for Anggun's showcase held at the J.W Marriott, Bukit Bintang, with Zara jeans and sneakers, limited edition batik inspired Swatch cum bracelet and golden shimmering Prada wallet

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on Sunday, September 13, 2009 at 2:32 AM

I got these black & grey CNC by Costume National t-shirts during my first time visit to Jakarta for only RM30. For an outing to my former boutique in KLCC (I used to work part time during and after studying) to visit friends who still working there, I paired the grey one with my Energie jeans, Maxmara metal plates belt, Passport slippers and the newest member of ChicnCheap family, the Chloe "Elvire" tote. And for the record, they are all discounted!

The Stripes

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on Saturday, September 12, 2009 at 1:35 AM

When you love fashion, you will try your very best to look good in any occasions, just for fun. All dressed up for my birthday dinner at Chatz Brasserie, The Park Royal Kuala Lumpur, I debuted all the stuff that I bought during the sale carnival except the Adidas sneakers. Initially, I wanted to done my brown Zara sneakers to match with the brown Chloe tote but I opted out for an all colorful The Stripes ensemble that include the blue striped sneakers, red and white striped Esprit belt and yellow lining Kwan long sleeves shirt

Brown Chloe "Elvire" Tote

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on at 1:23 AM

For a 80%, this is undoubtedly one of the biggest bargained in the history of ChicnCheap, interms of a brand courtesy of a clearance sale by Valiram held at the J.W Marriott, Kuala Lumpur. Chloe is not as popular as other fashion houses but they sure got the once-It bag, the Paddingtons. But this brown tote from "Elvire" collection is enough for me! The trademark is the fan-like ornaments on the bag

White Kwan T-Shirt with Yellow Lining

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on at 1:19 AM

I have always welcomed a nice twist of a bit here and there on a plain white shirt like this Kwan's with yellow lining for only RM49 from Isetan, Suria KLCC. Cuteness!

Brown Passport Slippers

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on at 1:15 AM

I wasnt whole-heartedly wanted to buy this brown Passport slippers but I couldnt find any interesting discounted ones but for a best buy of RM59.90 and they look good on my feet, I think it was a good buy, for now. You can still find them at Parkson, Suria KLCC

Striped Esprit Cardigan

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on Sunday, September 6, 2009 at 11:58 PM

Surprisingly, this is the first ever cardigan that I ever bought and luckily I got it for a big sum of 87% discount. I just thought it could be more funner to have some cloth layering style and guys, if you dont wanna saught after more clothes, you can always buy one outside to cover all inside

Black Sisley Hobo Bag with White Trimmings

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on at 11:56 PM

Of all the bags that were discounted for 50%, this black hobo with white trimmings was the best buy because of its size, design and colour. Love the spaciousness, the woven and tassel ornaments and also the white detailing on a black basic bag making it more interesting


Colour Block/ Brown Skinny Zara Corduroy

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on Saturday, September 5, 2009 at 11:56 PM

I almost forgot that I have this 50% discount brown skinny Zara corduroy so as usual, I will make use the most out of it by pairing it with my 50% off pink Esprit polo and lime green Zara espadrilles for a shopping trip and later

I paired it with my floral Ikka that I found from FOS short sleeves shirt for the annual breaking fast organized by my ex-school mates at Kelab Darul Ehsan. I think tugged out floral shirt was appropriate because the environment was kindda garden-ish and informal, relaxing.

Who says you cant have fun colour blocking with discounted items?

I found my "vintage" Wrangler beggy skateboarding-ish jeans circa 2005 and decided to channel Katie Holmes' infamous boyfriend's jeans look just for a laugh after buying my delicacies for breaking fast and teaming up with the ever ridiculous Crocs and my MTV limited edition t-shirt for a touch of sloppy matchy matchy kind of orangish/yellowish ensemble

Energie 70% Off Jeans

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on Thursday, September 3, 2009 at 11:56 PM

I wasn't sure why Energie is having a total wiped out up to 90% sale now but wasnt surpise because the pricing was way tad too ridiculous for our shore and luckily I got this 70% off jeans retailed at RM779 for only RM233.70! I decided to splurge on a branded jeans because my last Zara lasted for 3 years and it is easier for me because I'm not fussy with all the cuttings and all. Good quality and comfy matters the most
