zouk - flea & easy.


went to the recent zouk flea last sunday w/ a friend who's back from sydney for the hols. she was a bit apprehensive at first (the last bazaar i dragged her to - MAAD + fashbash (two-too), wasn't as fruitful as this one), but at least we both got something this time, regardless of how small.

she got a pre-worn maxi dress, handmade bracelet & ring, while i got a vintage flower brooch from dustbunny vintage, & a scrabble ring w/ of course, the first letter of my name on it. always wanted one of those, hehe. no clothes for me cuz the sellers were all mostly pretty little things, pfft. did try on a black topshop toga romper sized uk12 though, but the ruffles did me no favors.
will post photos as soon as i get time to (new job @ millenia walk, not deja vu vintage!).

for the time being though, here's the brooch!

sadly didn't get a chance to take photos of buddy's buys.

*UPDATE: my scrabble piece fell off. fml. hope bf'll help me fix it w/ his glue gun. ]:
**FURTHER UPDATE: i wore the vintage flower brooch for cny on a gray cardi last-min; it added an instant perk-me-up, loved it! think i'll save it for "special" occasions.

quickie!

finally got down to business; did some proper shopping at millenia walk (nearest mrt: promenade on the circle line) today. figured i might as well see what parco has to offer, what with their wide selection of local designers, etc. etc.

first & foremost, i would like to introduce you to my fondness of comfier-than-usual fabrics now! i am very very oh-so-very into them, thanks to, as usual, the ridiculously sweaty & eczema-ridden thighs & joints of mine. wunderbar.

anyways, i got a nice golden-y mustard yellow spag top at british india w/ a slight cowl-neck for 19 bucks! british india lei my friends; that means overpriced, made-in-china, summer-vacation resort clothes. but still oh so nice to wear & look at.

i also got a black wrap skirt from zhai a few days back at 56. quite pricey, but the feel is just to die for! the clothes all seem to be made in china, but they are made from bamboo fibres (don't ask me how), and are touted to have all sortsa magical properties! i'm honestly too lazy to list them all, so you're more than welcome to click on the link above, otherwise go find another local business that does the same sh*t (hah good luck w/ that). as far as i know, they're currently the first and only boutique selling such items. i mean, were you even aware that bamboo could be made into clothing? hemp i know, but bamboo?? wtf right.

but yeah, don't take it from me, go down & grab one of their sale items (they're pricey, nobody'll snigger at you) before they run out; i was lucky enough to get a new piece, so who knows.

photos up soon (if i can be bothered)!

hello again!

it's a weekday evening, & i'm staying over w/ the folks for the night, since mom's cooking & they're leaving for china this weekend.. so tomorrow, my plans incl. doing at least half of my shopping for this month, right before gss really disappears for good (until of course, next year)!

there is absolutely, absolutely no way in hell am i gonna wait any longer!!

major highlights to my wishlist that aren't actually impractical or whimsical: SHORTS. or a pair of thin capris would be nice, esp. in this bloody hot weather (and hv you seen where i work?! wtf). playsuits are a definite must-grab; been seeing an increasing amount of girls out there, out & about in their little summer-friendly outfits. am envious! saw a particularly cute one just two days ago at a bus stop: navy with a beige crocheted-lace collar. a pair of thick-soled shoes or kitten heels would be quite an investment too, despite the fact that i've been pretty much living in my bronze walkstar III fitflops for the past month ever since i go them..


recent additions however, are slightly whimsical, which are: nail polishes (navy! how could i hv missed that), andand.. another pair of fitflops! i saw a pair of gray oasis ones on sale at piperlime recently, but guess what! boss says we'll be bringing them in next month, so all ima have to do is just wait! hah. awesome. bf isn't too happy about me wanting another pair though, since he's convinced it's all just another one of those scams we women fall for - he believes teva is the way to go..

but honestly though, isn't that such a pretty shade of gray? plus gray is a neutral, so it's easy to match, right?? i bet it might even be worth the slight hassle of maintaining the suede straps..
