Ohai everyone. ????~!!!
It seems like a long time since I’ve posted an outfit I really wish I had a personal photographer to hang around me all day. But speaking of which, I had 2 person taking photos for me the other day. How lucky am I? It was a lovely day with Brad and Valerie and we had really tasty Dim Sum (omg the custard buns!!!) at Neil Road. I expect Brad to post about it on his food blog so I can direct all of you there when it’s up. He’s an awesome food photographer btw.
And this shot is by Val~ have I mentioned she’s the reigning Miss Earth Singapore? Go visit her blog now.
I’ll be really honest here. I haven’t worn anything that isn’t jersey for a really long time. This dress came just in time to break that routine. I love the drapey collar and how i can button up the front in different ways to create different looks and since the fabric itself isn’t very heavy, it is easy to wear it in Singapore but yet I can also wear it over knits and long sleeves when I’m overseas.
I also got my hands on these lovely suspender looking tights from Topshop. They really remind me of the Henry Holland for Pretty Polly Mock stockings that was all the rage after Rumi of Fashiontoast got her hands on one (The Henry Holland ones are all sold out btw, unless you wanna try eBay, damn scalpers!!!) This one is more girly with the scallop edges and hearts.
And then there is this bag which I got from this shop in Shinjuku, Tokyo. It’s called Twisty, located in Studio Alta if anyone is interested. They house many of the Gyaru fashion labels and I occasionally find things that suits my taste. The shop that stocks these bags is awesome with beautiful bag charms and studded goodness. I had to tear myself away.
These shoes remind me soooooo much of the Givenchy S/S 2010 jersey mummy wedges (omg I want them so much) cos they are ridiculously high that I had to buy them. I’m not usually a fan of suede as Singapore has really unpredictable weather and I don’t want to ruin them in the rain but they looked too awesome to give it a pass.
