There’s nothing special about the weather in Singapore. It’s just hot and humid. This particular day was no escape from the dreary heat. We had to photoshop sweat beads from our face (true story).

Bad idea wearing a jacket here, but I just wanted to wear my new harness out. I suppose it’s relevant (?) to the location since we’re near a Saddle Club (actually no it’s kinda irrelevant). Too bad horses don’t run free here or I’d taken photos of some. I guess they’re all chillin in the stables, away from the heat.

I love my skirt, but sometimes I think it is not worth the trouble buying from The Scarlet room. They’ve too many orders on their hand and their back orders take forever to fulfill. They’re not very prompt with my tracking numbers either. Moreover, they emailed the wrong tracking number which caused plenty of confusion.

Also, my lot of Etsy purchases have came in!

Black outfit breakdown:

  • Jacket: some online store I don’t remember
  • Camisole: H&M
  • Skirt: The Scarlet Room
  • Harness: AudraJean on Etsy.com
  • Socks: Comme des Garรงons
  • Shoes: Esperanza
  • Rings: snefter from Etsy.com

    I was just getting used to the cold actually, now I just have plenty of winter-suitable clothes that I can’t wear in the northern hemisphere.

    I agree! Etsy has so many hidden treasures. I find it so hard to find clothes that I want though.

    Dear Ladies, I’ve been a faithful follower for some time now and I just wanted to say that of all the fashion blogs out there, I really like yours. May I know how you get your pictures to have that lovely effect? Thank you!

    Hi Cat! Glad you decided to drop us a comment. ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you very much for your kind compliments.

    We use Adobe Lightroom to edit the colours, just a matter of tweaking contrast, exposure and colours. Hope that helps.

  7. I love the harnesses you two are wearing! I’ve never really seen them before and I think it’s great.

    Also, I’m in LOVE with that skirt ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thanks Samantha~
    We got them from the same store on etsy! I love mine so much I am actually considering getting another one.

    The skirt is still in stock on the website if you’re interested. I’m not a fan of the wait though.

    Samantha Nandez replied on

    The wait? Do they take a long time to deliver?

    [Reply]

    Arissa replied on

    Kind of, they have a habit of selling back orders. My skirt took close to 3weeks to get here and it was local shipping which doesn’t take more than a day. But since they have ready stocks now, they might not take as long.

    Yes it’s in Singapore.
    The harnesses are actually quite affordable compared to what I can find online.
