I was at Suntec yesterday and saw these at a gift shop selling for $15 each. Aren't they adorable?! They are perfect for snazzing up sneakers. Even better if you have a kid, then you can have matching sneakers! These are my top three picks:

I'm so happy right now! This has been the best weekend I've had in a long time. I was actually reluctant to go out to watch The Maze Runner today; it turned out to be a great show, and I'm looking forward to seeing the second and third! We went to Vivocity to watch it, and there was an Ecco pop-up sale going on. My friend pointed it out and I was like meh, Ecco has ugly shoes. We had lots of time before the movie started and I figured there was no harm in looking. I'm so glad I did because I got a pair of shoes (pictured above) that I can wear to more formal occasions (job interviews, dinners, etc.)!
Although it was pretty pricey at $160, it was 33% off and real leather, so I don't feel so guilty. I was honestly tempted to go to their outlet store at IMM to see if I can get it cheaper, but I changed my mind since I've been looking for a pair of smoking-slipper-reminiscent footwear, and this is it! I really didn't want to risk losing them. It was the last pair in this color and size, and although it's a little tight now, it's very comfy! They also come in a nice burgundy-brown color that first caught my eye, but I decided black would be a better choice as it's easier to match, plus as my friend put it, it looks more "professional". Men lol.

I saw these Nike Dunk Sky His on Asos about a month back when it was still in stock and on sale; I hesitated though cuz I wasn't sure if it'd fit me, and if it'd be too narrow or uncomfy for my feet. I saw a beige pair at the Nike factory outlet store in West Coast Plaza, but unfortunately they didn't have my size so I couldn't try them on.. I hope I'll see a pair in my size soon! I really need a pair of sneakers.
*Edit: I managed to try on a pair at Limited Edition Vault. It was their biggest size yet I couldn't squeeze my feet into them because they were just too narrow for me. Oh well.

|CARLINE (earth) by UP - USD30.00|
Whenever I'm in a shoe shop there a few types of shoes that I look out for like boots, loafers, and sneakers, but clogs are always the first to catch my attention in a shoe shop. I follow Indonesian fashion blogger Diana Rikasari on Instagram, and recently she posted a pic of herself wearing the black version of these clogs, which I liked. This particular design is so much prettier though, plus it's so unique! Have I mentioned that I love ethnic prints too?
What's even better is that they offer wide sizing! I'm starting to think that maybe I should start buying footwear online..

|Asos Skater Dress in Purple - SGD19.06|
After waiting for almost a month, my second Asos-brand purchase arrived, and I'm so thrilled, I want it in at least three other colors now. I honestly thought I'd never buy anything else Asos-branded after I got my disappointing white Asos-brand skirt two years ago, but after getting this dress, I've to admit, maybe Asos-branded clothes aren't that bad after all.
Normally I'd be pretty pissed at having to wait this long, but seeing as how I got it for just SGD19.06 (the other colors are almost thrice the price!) and it fits me pretty well, I'm not gonna complain.. I'm just relieved it didn't get lost in the mail.
Oh and here's a tip: next time you shop at Asos, pay in GBP instead of SGD. Someone told me recently that the bank's exchange rate is usually better than what Asos offers, and it turns out that it's true! I wish I knew sooner, but oh well, better late than never.
*EDIT: I managed to get it in navy and black too! At around the same price. Yaaay.
