    Mulberry Alexa Bag

    Uh oh. I’m not one for It bags or even designer bags, but Mulberry has the new Alexa bag out. Named after British young celeb Alexa Chung, it looks like an expensive satchel with a braided top handle & extra long strap to hang it nonchalantly on your shoulder. Coming in a range of colors and even pink leopard print, I expect to see knock-offs of the bag being rolled out as we speak. For myself, I would probably go with the tan colored one in soft buffalo leather.

    Shaggy Coats

    My friend C saw this cool white furry cardigan at a fashion show we were at the Mandarin Gallery last Thursday, and afterwards, dragged me to every store to find the damned thing.

    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!

    What I Want to Wear Now aka Fantasy Wardrobe

    So a status update: I am still living out of my suitcase that contained only 2.5 week’s worth of clothes & am unable to gain access to my full wardrobe…UGH!! It is almost a nightmare – I am still living in my summer casuals, when really it should be nice & dark & wintry. I do love having my complete set of things around me, because I often dress according to my mood that day. With the help of the Polyvore website (which is a neat fashion collage/trend board website), I have come up with 3 different looks as part of my envisioned “Fantasy Wardrobe”. This is why I like…

    Happily Sidetracked!

    Oops! I was really searching for something else on the Internet, when I came upon the brand Aqua Couture at the ASOS website. WOO! All the structured shoulders, unique shapes & strong & sexy looks.. I couldn’t help but drool over them. I would wear each one for each day of the work week!
