Shades of pink

It was a typical Wednesday, the allocated day of the week, ever since I got married, to meet my mum for dinner. She, surprisingly, wasn’t in the mood to cook and wanted instead to pop by my sister’s workplace (the Polo Ralph Lauren store at Isetan Scotts) to show me the items which she has reserved (only due for collection in July. ATAS), and at the same time check out the Isetan private sale, since we could enter via some special privilege. TSK.  The last time I’ve been to an Isetan private sale must have been eons ago with my ex ex colleagues who were members so I have hardly any recollection of the crowd level. And boy, it was absolute madness. We could barely shop, with women from don’t-know-where on the verge of a stampede and ransacking the racks like they’re F.O.C!

But I have to admit that some of the items on sale were a genuine slash off the retail price. I bought a maxi dress at a steal of $17 (which hopefully can see me through at least one of the sudden surge of upcoming weddings in June & July) and my mum bought a tee for $11.Thumbs up to Isetan who had the foresight to install those make-shift changing rooms and cashier counters which made our overall shopping experience a little more efficient.

So anyway, when I first saw my mum, I realized our outfits were pretty matching, and it was totally unintentional! Even her newly acquired bag from Europe matched the base color of my skirt! Cool eh?

I kid you not. It is an endless world of possibilities with florals, and no, they DO NOT add years to your age, and if you know how to style your outfits well, they do the exact opposite of shedding radiance and colors to your wardrobe!

So if you are up to the task, why not shop with us at Lavender Lane

A beautiful mess

It must have started way back, when i remember how I would secretly choose some of my mum’s outfits, pieces which appeal to me, such as her high waist skirt, big belts, big puffy sleeved tops which upon looking back, explains my undeveloped love for vintage, unknowingly, a pair of heels, and oh, how can I forget, her red lip stick and blusher, when I would then sneak out to my primary school bestie’s place.

And guess what we would be doing????

Putting them on in the best possible combination and taking shots of ourselves! The origins of cam-whoring now you know hohohoho. I’m just glad that digital cameras weren’t really in existence then (at least not to my knowledge) and hence those AHEM not-so-glam photos are now tucked in some corner of my house. PHEW.

It was soooo much fun and I totally miss those carefree days. But you know what, I am actually still doing it these days, only that with new-found purchasing power, I have acquired pieces which are dear to me, and finding new ways to style items in my wardrobe, taking shots of myself and sometimes whatsapping Tiffany (we used to do it A LOT, haha) on those inspired moments. I term it fashion revelation each time a new way of piecing them together pops into my head!

Here are some of my favorite looks!

See what a pair of maroon tights can do to brighten up an outfit

This was an accidental mix and match cos I wasn’t really able to envision the look (yes, I need to have a mental idea of how the pieces will go) and I was pleasantly surprised at how it turned out! Isn’t Perth just beautiful?

The amazing world of florals

On a recent trip to Hongkong. Oh the wonders of layering.Yes this is random, a fashion discovery made just last night that purple does well with green! PS: Please ignore my lack of hips. Yes I’m a stick ):

and this pair of green pants is actually rather versatile aren’t they? My camel belt helped brighten up this ensemble and it goes well with the gold details on my sandals and bag strap too!

The thrills of being a woman. Well no one can really fault you for being vain, can they? :p

Love,
Valerie
