Just over the Lunar New Year, we invited fashion blogger, Drea Chong, down to our stores to pick out a few of her favourite pieces.
Check out her curated selections in her blog posts here & here. The pairing of our Amelia gradient dress from the Rockstar x AL&Alicia collection with that printed SOLUDOs tote is way too cute. And we are loving how she, in her lithe petite frame, could pull off those slouchy paperbag pants so effortlessly.
It's March! We've got a few exciting plans lined up for the month, and we're kick-starting with this -
We are shaking things up in store and going ACTIVE. On a stressful, hair-pulling day, our favourite way to wind-down and destress is by sweating it all out - be it brisk jogging or a calming yoga class. And if we are going to be sweating it out, we are going to sweat it out in style.
Faded orientation t-shirts, ratty tatty gym shorts, bulky trainers? Forget about it. We've sussed out pieces from the most current activewear brands, and bringing you our favourites from New Balance, Lorna Jane, 2XU, Moving Comfort and even Roxy (yes - we are getting first dibs on their active line!). Available in stores 14 March.
From lazy Sundays to sun-down yoga sessions, we promise to be with you every step of the way.
And while we are at it - win for yourself & your best galpal a stylish full work-out gear from New Balance (worth SGD340). Click for deets!
Do you love your stripes? We do, and not one bit embarrassed to say we could be a little obsessed.
We love how stripes can instantly sharpen an outfit - Simply pairing it with a blazer, or a high waisted midi skirt.
And when we went around looking for THE perfect striped tee, we found Saint James.
Why the premium price tag? They take one extra, crucial, step in their manufacturing process - After each part of the shirt is cut, the pieces are then applied to a needled table. This allows for each stripe to be perfectly aligned from front of the shirt to back. This extra step is what makes their garment so special and visually striking. Perfect for OCD types.
Saint James is now available at Rockstar (Orchard 22).
