Take a bicycle, plant a fashionable person on it and you have about 5000 coos from all over the world, simultaneously.

You wanna see everything, the clothes, the accessories, the person, the bike, the gear (basket? SO CUTE!), but Downtown from Behind shoots everyone in landscape and from the back, all around NYC. (Apparently only every street below 14th, but I have no bearings of New
York at all so I can’t say much about that.)

The subject is doesn’t dominate the picture, sized kinda sneakily, shot a tad bit voyeuristic, and you cannot help but feel that little bit more enticed with every scroll and every picture.

Plus, it’s cool that there’s a tiny tidbit of info with every person shot. Cos we all wanna know everything about the next person we don’t know now (they come from alllll walks of life, not just too-hip-it-hurts vintage store owners and the whole shebang), don’t we?

But really, I personally find this whole stylish pedaling thing romantic because… I cannot ride a bike. Boo!

Oh Fuzz!

I think we got Uncle Karl to thank for this one.

After sending down sasquatch-esque fuzz-covered models down Chanel runways earlier this year… The material has been slapped onto dozens of designs from bags to shoes to hats to coats.

Rachel (above) and Abbey Lee Kerkshaw (below) show us how to pull off the fuzz jacket. And I am TOTALLY crushing their styles.

But like I mentioned to Jo over beers the other night, pretty as this trend is. I feel kinda sad for the poor animal that became a coat. /:

If it’s synthetic, by all means!

Instead of paying attention in class like I should have :D, I was trawling through Bloglovin’ to bring you these very beautiful people snapped from across the blogsphere.

Leopard print hasn’t (yet) been a hurdle I’ve been able to embrace into my closet. I always think it requires a minimum level of confidence, style, edge and boldness that I don’t quite possess yet.

[Spotlight] A|X MBS & Red in Head Redux

Last weekend, amidst the F1 mayhem… Armani Xchange held an intimate party to celebrate the opening of their Marina Bay Sands outlet.

Instead of the usual fashion show strut to kick of the party, models took turns posing at the windows just how A|X clothes move and look ever-so-sleek. (Especially on glamazonian models!)

The clothes, shop, food, drinks and ambience was really great. I mean, its MBS ya’ll. If that doesn’t ooze lux, I don’t know what will. (:

It was a really fun night, getting to meet and catch up with some of the bloggers as well as meet a few new faces (:

Second stop for the evening was Keppel Island, which, thanks to X-wen, got us invites to this very exclusive invite-only Red in Head Redux by MrDope.

Copious amounts of champagne was drunk. And the music was really really good. If I can get my blackberry to connect to cooperate and connect (properly) to my computer, I’ll upload a video of the DJ spinning + light show display that they had set up in their fully air-conditioned pop-up club. ((:

But in the meantime, here are some photos.

After 11.30pm thereabouts, I stopped snapping cos the alcohol was taking effects and I was busy dancing. hehes

Therefore, final shot of the evening… Happy feet!



Overdue Photos

Photos are long over-due.

There were some snaps amidst frantic packing and selling of stuff during my closet clearout.



The Little Things She Needs

They say it’s the little things that make a big difference. This pretty and petite package dressed herself almost entirely in accessories (multiple rings check, bangles check, necklace check, head thing check, shoes check, some-other-small-items-I’m-not-confident-of-describing check), save for the huge kaftan hanging on her which, on hindsight, also almost looks like a scarf on its own.

She is the personification of the new accessories store, The Little Things She Needs. I’m kinda glad she’s not a 6-feet tall blonde-hair, blue-eyed model from a huge agency and dressed by a hired stylist. She works for one of the seven stores in Jakarta and put together this Asian-Bohemian look with items from their current and upcoming collection, all by herself.

An aside: I never knew pumps would work with a kaftan so well. I would usually just go with something that borders on formal/corporate. Meh.

If you’re a sucker for shoes and accessories, make sure you bring someone in tow to provide emotional support and possibly safe-keep your wallet. If you’re part of Shopaholics Anonymous, do not be within 100 metres of this store. (Or actually, don’t be in Singapore altogether.) It’s floor-to-ceiling walls of really affordable shoes, bags and little things in this new store located in #B3-52 ION Orchard.



Dusk to Dust

When my boyfriend showed me these photos he took while walking around Stockholm Central, we (or rather, I) gushed over the cute girl on the right – from her rounded bob, oversized collar, high-waist pants, how she rolled up her cuff and hems, the feather in her hair, her peep-toe slingback sandals that kinda remind me of my childhood pair…

When I was uploading and reviewing our photos, I was thinking.. all she’s wearing is brown! wow. And she doesn’t look like soil. She’s kinda like a vintage pocahontas, if that makes any sense.

Then I was editing the pictures and piecing them together for this post, and it just occurred to me that the lady beside her is drowning in blue. Top-to-toe. Neck-to-shin. Her kid. His stroller. I like her scarf, the length of her sleeves, her blunt bangs and blunt locks, her A-line skirt and her matchy-matchy son.

Isn’t the mark of wearing an all-over single colour well, the fact that people don’t notice it?

Alright you may say, vary tone, vary shade, vary texture, but I feel like I need guidance and tuition to pull off whole non-black looks like those two. I fear looking like a dirty fox beside a pool of muddy water in soil.
