Model Answer 1:
I have recently bought a trench coat known as Maison Margiela form a branded shop in Berlin, Germany. This is a gorgeous coat and comes in the latest fashion and style. The coat has some special features and fastening capacities. I would like to thank you for this nice cue card topic and would further describe why I have purchased it, how much it has cost me and my feelings regarding my purchase of this coat.

I bought the coat from Harvey Nichols – a renowned clothing brand across the country. It took 1000 euros – a bit expensive for a student like me but I could not resist owning the coat because of its amazing look and feel. I planned that I will adjust a few other costs next month to cover it.

I bought the trench coat considering the comfort it offers and the cold weather during the winter. It is fashionable and the special cuts on the coat body are very attractive. The coat comes with stone cut double-breasted buttons on the front side. The belt that I use to fasten it is detachable. The fabric is made of pure cotton and it comes with the dry cleaning facility.

After purchasing the coat, I had a mixture of feelings. First of all, I felt a deep sense of satisfaction to have the coat. But when I considered the price, it appeared that I spent exorbitantly. I have spent almost all the pocket money on the coat. However, I am happy to have a dazzling trench coat like this one.

 

Sample Answer 2:
Although my wardrobe is full of trendy and upscale clothes, I could not restrain myself from buying a really expensive dress by Burberry- which is one of the most expensive clothing brands in the world. I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to talk about it.

The dress I have bought is a Tiered Jersey which is a type of fluid jersey T-shirt dress with a tiered skirt and crystal-embellished brooch. It had two colours- black and blue and I purchased the black one. It is not a casual wear and I have planned to wear it on special occasions like at a birthday party. I purchased it from an outlet in London a few months ago and it cost me exactly one thousand and eight hundred pounds!

Frankly speaking, it won’t be an exaggeration to call myself a cloth horse. Whenever I see a trendy dress or feel like I should buy a particular piece of clothing, I feel an urge to have it. On this particular occasion, I was visiting a friend at London and strolled on the street for a while with her. The dress caught my eyes and I entered the showroom of Burberry. I ended up paying a large some of the money for this dress. I bought it because I liked it and this is often the case with people who have a great zeal for shopping - specifically for dresses.

How did I feel? Well-  Firstly, I regretted on buying such an expensive branded clothes, but after a few minutes, the attraction to having such a dress for the first time evaporated my concern. If I tell you right now how I feel, I would say I am trying to be more rational - you know what I mean.
