It’s that time of the year again! Online superstore Net-a-Porter is having a massive sale on their USA website (they ship anywhere in North/South/Central America — that means US, Canada, Mexico etc) right now, ahead of the usual brick-and-mortar retailers! Enjoy discounts of up to 50% off on your favourite designer brands.
I was browsing the selection of wallets at Hermès on Broad Street the other day and as pretty and buttery soft soft soft supple as they are, the astronomical price tags are just too much. But then again, it’s Hermès. ‘Nuff said. I don’t even know why I’m looking at wallets because the bf gave me one (Hello Kitty, mind you) for my birthday two months ago. Unfortunately, the cute factor had worn off after using it a few times. Going through the Net-a-Porter site this morning, I saw this fluorescent green Comme des Garçons wallet. Green on one side, bright orange on the other.

I bought this red lego heart brooch from a store in Haji Lane, Singapore a few days ago. I wanted to give one to the BF the next time I see him but then again, it’s probably a bit too outré for his taste. I asked him on Skype if he would wear such thing. Our conversation went like this:
Him: Where do you want me to wear it?
Me: On your coat?
Him: It’s summer soon…
Me: On your jacket?
Him: I only wear jackets if I go to formal events and the brooch is hardly formal.
Me: Ok I’ll give it to friends then.
Him: I can wear it on my t-shirt.
Me: Oh yeah.

I was blown away when Raf Simons sent those spring/summer 2011 floral looks down the runway at Jil Sander. Like everything else in fashion (yes, I saw the new spring/summer 2011 Prada baroque and monkey t-shirts at the store the other day), if you can’t get the full look, why not get the t-shirt?

Shoes Make Me Happy
Are you enjoying the holiday shopping season? There are tons of SALE promotions everywhere. I swear to god, my heart beats faster every time I see a 'sale' sign and I always have to remind myself "Stop. Must. Save. For. Future."
I saw this hysterical sign at the ION shopping mall in Singapore yesterday morning.
Suddenly don't feel bad about the treats I got myself: a new pair of Lanvin shoes and a Marc Jacobs bag.
I think I've worked VERY hard this year…a treat (here and there) is well-deserved, no?
Shopbop Fashion Insider Holiday Wishlist: Bryanboy
Have you seen my holiday wishlist at Shopbop?
Although that gorgeou$$$ Derek Lam fur piece is a wee bit out of reach for me, I ended up buying those massive Karen Walker sunglasses for myself. Y’all know I love my sunglasses big. I’m a size queen!

Another Retailer Joins The Free Worldwide Shipping Bandwagon
Online shopping, especially if you live outside the USA, has it disadvantages. We all know shipping fees can be very expensive. That's why I praise and support retailers like Shopbop or Luisa Via Roma who ship things for free. I cannot count the number of times I want to buy something small and the cost to ship the item is higher than the price of the item itself.
For a limited time only, another online retailer joins the free international shipping bandwagon. The Outnet (aka Net-a-Porter's sister site) is offering free shipping wherever you are in the world.
