Fast Fashion

For those who know me well, you will know that I love fashion and being inspired by designers.  I follow certain brands and designers on instagram and regularly read high end fashion magazines and about the luxury brand industry.  There are some amazing and talented people out there creating beautiful things.

However those that know me also know that I can be pretty tight with my money.  I think it stems from being so poor when I was growing up.  Weirdly though I can justify splurging on a holiday or a really awesome restaurant but in most cases I can't bring myself to spend more than $100 on a single item of clothing.  Maybe it's because it is money spent on an experience rather than a material item... In any case it does mean I love bargain fashion and since moving to Singapore I have discovered a bunch of local online stores that sell fast and cool (and cheap) fashion.  

You will have to spend some time trawling through the sites so you really need to be in the mood.  Some of my favourites are: 

Mds Collections (international shipping is available)

I recently picked up this cool little navy jumpsuit for S$39.



The Closet Lover

I recently bought some nude leather shorts (for S$28.50) and these cool floral lace runner shorts for an absolute steal (S$24.50). 


Love Bonito (international shipping is available)

I really want this cape blazer but it is always out of stock! 


Happy Shopping!

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.  

Walking down the aisle:

Japan love...

Some friends of ours are currently holidaying in Japan (they were also our wedding photographers and have an awesome blog here. If you are getting married I definitely recommend them)...
Anyhow, I have been reading their tweets and status updates and am reminiscing and dreaming about Japan.  I spent a year in Sapporo on exchange whilst at uni and have visited Japan I think at least 4 other times... it has been about 2 years since my last visit so perhaps another one is due soon?!?!  There is just something about the place that I love - perhaps it is the memory of some amazing times, the delicious and unique food, the shopping or the wonderful people... I can't put my finger on it but you MUST get there if you haven't already.  
On shopping, some of my must visit stores are:

Uniqlo:  Your one stop shop for basics.  They have also partnered with many designers, companies, artists for the UT project - limited edition tshirts.   UT t-shirts are available in all Uniqlo stores but c…
