    HOW TO WEAR: BOOTIES – LACE-UP & WEDGE

    Been searching all over some kick-ass booties (black of course!) to buy, and I found sooo many! I realised that not everyone goes for this sort of thing because some of the designs can be so outrageous! But I managed to narrow it down to peep-toe lace-up ones & wedge booties that are not overly trendy. Although, I’ve seen a gazillion knock-offs of last season’s Alexander Wang Frejha booties & I’ve included one of them. So, to wedge or not to wedge? And more importantly, what to wear with them? Wedge Booties From left to right: Giuseppe Zanotti wedge booties, Bebe Dolly wedge booties, Joe’s Jeans wedge booties A staple…

    How To Wear: Crop Tops, Bandeaus & Lace Bras

    As the thick of summer approaches and the weather gets hotter and hotter, it’s time to try these cool trends. 1) Crop Tops Pair them with high waist bottoms – skirts, shorts, peg leg pants. The skill is in finding a pair of bottoms that, when worn together, only lets you show the right amount of skin to flatter your figure. Or you can skip that altogether by layering with a longer tank top inside. 2) Bandeaus If you’re more daring, you can try wear bandeaus as a top with a flared skirt a la Urban Outfitters.

    Indiesin

    Oh, how I love Facebook ads! I found the website Indiesin on there & of course I had to click through. It’s a local Singaporean online boutique that stocks so-called “indie” type apparel, very much in the style of Urban Outfitters which I love. And practically everything goes for around $20 odd Singapore Dollars! How reasonable is that! If you want your fashion fast, affordable & hipster, this is the store for you & me!
