I am pretty much the online shopper. I think more than half of my wardrobe was acquired via online purchases. My list of online stores is long and burgeoning – I have shopped a lot on eBay, or on US-based invite-only groups such as ideeli and Gilt. All my shoes are purchased from US or UK stores online – check out my recent discovery Kurt Geiger. While I have tried my hand on grabbing fashion collaborations from Target or Macy’s sites, the commonplace web stores such as The Outnet, My Wardrobe, ASOS, Urban Outfitters, Shopbop etc are also featured prominently in my bookmarks (as well as on this blog).
When PayPal suggested to sponsor shopping credits to explain the ease of shopping with them, I took the opportunity to explore another online store which I have heard so much about, but never made any purchase there.
Yes, I’m referring to ModCloth!3 Comments
Our “bathing suit” has undergone several eras and evolution, with the 1950s known widely as the “golden era” of women’s swimwear. It was during this era that corseted style “maillots” became popular and contestants started strutting in swimwear at beauty pageants.

By now, you should know I’m not as “glitzy” as my name. I am a slacker by default.
One Saturday, I brought my lomolito out for a walk. I was in my favourite denim shorts and Birkenstocks..
The plaid shirt deserves a mention. It is my vintage piece. I bought it as a brand new shirt dress when I was a teenager. More than 10 years later, plaid is back. I altered the dress to a shirt and it still fits like a tee.
In fact, the brand “Fornari” is not even in Singapore anymore.

I will wear my own vintage more often.4 Comments
