I'm baaaack!

Back from London, a little colder, a little poorer... what am I saying? a LOT poorer. But still... lots of loot to show for it. I'll report back on the shopping in a bit, but wouldn't you know it? As soon as I get back all the sales start! I'm pretty sure the universe is out to torture me.

Not in order of merit / temptation:

- Shopbop mid season sale! I'm absolutely loving the Fiona Paxton cuff above, but now that I'm back to reality, I really should be good and give it a miss. Sniff...

- On Pedder sale: Happening this weekend if you're interested. Doors open at 10am at Raffles City convention hall (I forget the exact details, but there should be signs), but if you're serious, be there early. queue starts to form by 9am or earlier.

- Front Row sale: my main reason for hitting this would be for A.P.C. but again, have to restrain myself.

Keep repeating the mantra: If you don't see, you won't buy.

time warp - Dunlin

I read about Dunlin years ago in US vogue and was seriously obsessed for a while... unfortunately my budget couldn't handle it so I put it out of my mind eventually (I bet this story is starting to sound familiar... what can I say, this happens to me a lot). Anyway, fast forward to last week when I saw Dunlin featured in a blog post somewhere and the love just came crashing back full force! I guess I should just count myself lucky that this has never happened with exes or anything like that :p

Anyway, now just to decide if I should get the medium Lafayette tote or the larger Weekender size. I'm kicking myself for not remembering to check out their store in NYC when I was there in the summer! Can you say summer sales? (not to mention that I'd missed out on some truly amazing deals end of last year - some people picked up the medium lafayettes at 50% off! Sadly those stores don't seem to carry Dunlin anymore... If I could find more online stockists maybe I'd wait).

hot or not?

Well in Singapore at least, undeniably hot (and not necessarily in a good way). Still, I've been pining for a leather tee ever since I saw the Celine one last year... has it been that long already? Lucky for me, it seems the trend's had some longevity, so now there are a whole new crop of leather tees to choose from at a significantly lower price point. Sadly still not cheap, but you can't have everything.

What you can have though, is this DvF leather tee at 50% off... but only if you're a size 0 or 2 (*sniff* I hate you already).

my personal favourites, these two (above and below) from Maje.
