A Laced Ideal
I’m hoping every one of you got a chance to shop your hearts out at Cotton On Online because believe me when I say the sale is sensational. Where else will you find rompers for $2 and shoes for $5? Seriously, I’m not even kidding, it’s like bargain heaven.
Put the sale aside and you’ve still got free shipping! I just bought more shoes by the way (because you know shoes solve everything).
Most of you or at least some would know that this isn’t my usual look - I’m not really a bun person but I just had to try the doughnut bun thing and I’m actually warming up to this. My neck feels the wind.
I’m also a huge fan of blazers but they’re not exactly weather friendly for Singapore’s
slight excruciating heat & humidity so this lightweight lace blazer is definitely a great buy. Lace, the word itself brings to mind images of night wear, lingerie or if you’re a fan of the Victorian times then think British royalty. There has been such a peak and trough cycle with lace - from being a delicate & expensive material worn by royalty to getting associated with ‘cheapness’, perfectly supported by this quote,
“It is difficult to see why lace should be so expensive; it is mostly holes.” - Mary Wilson Little
and eventually it was relegated to what you wear behind closed doors. This is putting it rather briefly but you get the picture.
Now lace is back and it’s being celebrated with so much fervor across designers. Wear it inside, outside, on top of other lace and in as many colour variations you like. Lace is back with dignity and I quite like it.
Even though fall is supposed to be all dark and gloomy, you could go against it and still play up your dark fall wardrobe with little bursts of colour. In my opinion, bright saturated hues transcend every season - there will be no end to colours.

Ever since I got this pair of pants from the recent Zara sale, I’ve been wearing them to death. They have been either colour blocked with other brights or toned down with white/ black. Plus fashion is always fun when you get to play with colours in your wardrobe!
This time I went with a white linen shirt from H&M in an effort to stay cool in the heat. It was blatantly blazing in the afternoon and I was at the Agnès B press event held up high at Ku Dè Ta. Imagine how much closer I was to the relentless sun.
Nevertheless, the view at the sky deck was amazing! It’s the best place to go to get a bird’s eye view of Singapore because you can see literally everything.
It has a great backdrop for photo taking too!

News: Zara set to open online store Sept 2nd
Zara is all set and ready to jump on the bandwagon of opening an online store. This is probably a great idea considering most of us spend hours on the net scouring for bargains and since some of us don’t live near a Zara store. For now the online store will be open for the folks in Spain, France, Germany, the UK, Italy and Portugal and it will be ready by September 2nd.
Soon enough, it will be available for everyone!
