The Real Slim Shady

Thursday, March 29, 2012

Here's the promised post featuring my shades collection! I'm more of a cheap shades person cause I don't just wear one pair all the time, I need them shades to go with my outfits so I need a lot of designs to rotate between. If all my shades were expensive (think Le Specs,Karen Walker,Linda Farrow), I would be eating grass and chewing on bark right now. One day, I'll get a pair of Karen Walkers, LOVE those shades. But till then, I'll just stick to my cheap ones.

Middle row: H&M, Aldo, Urban Outfitters, ASOS, F21, F21.

Pouches I use for my shades. The top one is a recent purchase from H&M for S$3.90 and the bottom one I got it from Urban Outfitters some time ago for US$10. Just received another pouch I got from ASOS, will take a photo of it another time!

Reebonz 3rd Anniversary Party

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Sponsored post.

The Reebonz (say ribbons, not ree-bondz) team invited me down to Avalon for their 3rd Anniversary Party last Wednesday! Though I'm not a huge fan of events in clubs (cause of the bad lighting), I enjoyed myself cause the apple cider that they were serving was awesome plus the music was pretty good as well. Emma and I were ogling at the bags for awhile when we first got there and decided that we shouldn't tempt ourselves with all the pretty bags (special discounted prices for that night) so we retreated to a less crowded spot to chill and people-watch while sipping our ciders. I must say I was pretty impressed with the crowd that night, the atmosphere was great and everyone was dressed up nicely, toting their Chanels and Balenciagas.

But that's not all, as if booze, shopping and the entertainment weren't enough, they were giving away 3 bags to three very lucky attendees that night! Mulberry, Chloe and Hermes! Yea I'm still bit disappointed that I didn't win any of the bags, I'm not very lucky when it comes to lucky draws. No matter, still had a good time at the party and I even asked them what brand of apple cider they brought in so that I could get some for myself next time. Heh.

What I wore to the party. Please excuse my tummy, we just had dinner. Got the skirt from ASOS for £15 cause it's so pretty and it reminded me of the Givenchy skirts that I was lusting over. For 30bucks I just had to get it if not I'll regret it for life.

SOS

Tuesday, March 27, 2012

Kind of obsessed with white tops recently. Snagged this white mesh top from H&M for 30bucks, good buy. And it has been too long since I last wore my ASOS wide leg trousers, so comfy, no idea why this is only the second time I'm wearing it.

If you guys are observant, you might have already realised that I'm working at Wingtai right now! Explains all the F3 brands loaded outfits for the past few outfit posts. I'm currently part of the editorial team for the new website that launched a couple weeks back, F3.com.sg. Go check it out! Tonnes of awesome articles ranging from behind the scenes, runway trends to music and lifestyle.

Colour of Fresh Snow

My very first all white outfit! I've been wanting to do this for a very long time but I just didn't have the opportunity and the clothes/shoes.

Took these photos at one of my favourite spots along Orchard Road. Care to guess where it is though it's super obvious?

All About the Parka

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

So I've been wanting to get a parka cause I need variety for my outerwear, but most of them have hoodies, or zips at the collars for hidden hoodies, huge flappy collars and what nots. Don't know if anyone noticed but I'm not a huge fan of huge collars on outerwears, not including blazers of course. I finally found one from ASOS that I really like so naturally it went into the cart and kaching I bought it.

It's quite a good buy considering that it has perforated leather.

Switch x 09.03.12

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Pia's very first collection (with her partner Jaime), so proud of her.

I'm in love with the colours and everything else! Did I mention that the collars, sleeves and whatever-that-has-a-button-on-it is removable and switchable (hence the name Switch)? Plus the whole collection is made of sustainable materials, eco-friendly ftw! Oh oh, how can I forget that sky high Marge Simpson + Alien hair! I totally teared when I was at the show.

Bloggers all donned in either black, white or grey! Emma, me, Lenne, Fatiha and Arissa.
