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.
Click HERE if you live in North, South or Central America.
