places ima check out soon.


as i mentioned before, it's that time of the year again! i'll be starting work this following week at marina square, so where better to shop than the surrounding area? :3

here's a list of places i'll be headed to in the next few days:
1) deja vu vintage at millenia walk (selected sales items discounted up to 80% – separates from $10, dresses from $25, plus bags & shoes from $20 onwards? count me in!)
2) parco next next at millenia walk (yep, my old workplace. i'm keen to see the new batch of talent anyway, so i might as well pop by for a look if not to buy anything)

..& more, who knows.

*UPDATE: went there, looked around, didn't get anything in the end (like i suspected). new designers are nothing impressive, except maybe for a couple. as for deja vu, lotsa things are not made of 100% cotton and/or too small for me. oh well. i've to admit, i saw this coming a mile away.

+1 post!

double posts in a day! so today at around eleven-plus i went to ion orchard to hunt down a pair of black denim jeans and black shoes for work. i had to be very picky since i'll be working as a f&b supervisor this weekend onwards. i was hungry since i hadn't had breakfast but i figured i'd visit all the shops i wanted to visit on basement 2 first since i was there anyway & wouldn't be returning to take the mrt. i also popped by wheelock place later in the afternoon. i won't bore you w/ unnecessary details like which shops i went to, what i ate etc., but i will say this:

1) i was disappointed that despite me managing to squeeze into the largest size for uniqlo's jeans (28), it was still tight enough to give me a very prominent muffin top (ie. tight as hell). uniqlo is great for tops though ($9.90 for a cute print top by franche lippee!).

2) 3 bras for $50 at la senza sounded very enticing but they didn't have my size in the designs i wanted

3) $25 for a bra from marks & spencers sounded good too but the prob w/ sales items is, quantity is usually limited, more so with sizes

4) stradivarius wasn't all it was cracked up to be (imo). i did see a nice kimono-print tee-dress though.  

5) zara was lovely as usual but barely any discounted items. i skipped warehouse since there didn't seem to be any sales. topshop lacked cotton items (as expected), but the shoes were nice (not fit for wide, flat-footed people like me though fleh).

6) mango, usually good for bargains, was closed for some private sale event. mimco didn't have much interest for me while witchery was overpriced imo. bimba & lola had lovely pieces & decor, & despite the service staff with their snobbish attitude & chatting amongst themselves, i felt their heavy price tags were quite justified, looking at the quality & design of their pieces.

5) sephora was disappointing. i found an eyeliner i liked but for $20? sasa sells a similar khaki green one for less than $8, except that it's not liquid. i was actually on the hunt for matte lipstain & the tokidoki eyeliner, however i was told by the salesgirl that they're a seasonal item and were only brought in during last x'mas. the (sephora) matte lipstain on the other hand, didn't have any colors that appealed to me, so i left it at that.

gss buys!

well, technically, they aren't exactly gss buys.. but meh, since it is gss season anyway (that's great singapore sale btw to all you foreigners out there, and yes, it's a nationwide sale). for now i'll just be listing only wearable items i've bought, otherwise:

#1 won't be easy for me to keep track
#2 this is wardrobe wishlist afterall (despite me digressing occasionally hehe).

so, my first buy was last sunday at bhg (junction 8). it's a simple, plain and comfy khaki green cotton tee from some cheena brand patch. it came w/ this black beaded ribbon-bow brooch which i'm very likely to give away lol. gyaru, yes, but too feminine for me really. photo/s soon! i'm gonna be cutting the collar into a scoop-neck as soon as i get time to go to the tailor/seamstress, so there'll be a before & after.

second buy was today at uniqlo (ion orchard); more about my trip to town (ie. ion+wheelock, i know i'm so lazy). i've always wanted something from uniqlo, & finally, i have it, and for just SGD9.90 (that's more than 50% off the original price of $24.90!)! i'm so glad i told myself about a month or two ago at the opening of one of their latest outlets at vivocity that no, i should wait for the price to dip, & boy am i glad i did! i love how they've so many print tees & collaborations w/ various designers now. there'll be more photos (self-taken ones, not ripped-off-from-google-images ones) soon, as soon as i pluck up the courage to use my crappy*ss phone cam & my skin condition gets better.

i need height.

one pair of clogs is not enough for me; ever since i got my clogs, i realized that i can wear heels, i just need lotsa proper cushioning and support. this means all of my previous shoes aren't fit for me (too bad, it hurts a lot more to wear them though than it pains my heart).

so, i've my eye out for a pair of earthy-colored (brown would be ideal) heels that will lift me up at least four inches off the ground, preferably as high as the jeffrey campbell lanas below.


ai yai yai~. i'm tempted by the brown doc marten una mules, but idk, the height doesn't really seem to be enough for me..
