You know Christmas, or the end of the year is creeping up on you when retailers start churning out fancy schmancy bling bling diamante studded strappy heels of precarious height.
Then you have the good people at Bianca, who wholeheartedly design and produce very yummy shoes that can take you from work to party, sans boring bling and schlutty straps.
Cue thick, generous straps, (even better when they’re doubled like those flats in the corner), a mix of matte and patent, and chunky, but surprisingly sexy silhouettes! Sarah and I caved in and bought something each (:
I was about to sew plain elastic bands to wear with all my shoes, then I saw these at Bianca! These are deep purple pumps with a slight platform, white stitching and white piping AND a nice elastic strap over the front 😀
I tried a 39 and a 40, but my horribly wide/fat feet did not allow for a nice fit 😐 so we moved on to clothes and bags!
Jolene was smitten by this wine coloured shoulder bag because of the cute wooden links and the very interesting shape! But she passed on it and bought 2 clothing items instead
I loved this little powder pink portable treasure chest 😀 Okay so it’s a small bag, but it has a nifty top handle and a nice clasp! This is what I got in the end. It’s a little smaller than the bags I usually carry, but it ought to teach me how to get out and about without bringing my entire room along with me.
There were many delicious details in the food and decor – M&Ms on top of brownies, tidbits displayed in vintage shallow boxes, plastic cups in rainbow, drinks in a myriad of colours, printed satin sashes around the jugs..
Another thing I really like about Bianca is the decor. There’s a lot of fabric used in their little space. Lots of velvet, thick satin, layered lace in the most royal of plums. You get such nice colours in photographs. It’s really luxe, but practical as well because it’s easy to maintain, or change the feel of the shop.
More Haji Lane action soon! But I really need to check out the Ann Siang area – I haven’t been there before!
