Today's post is brought to you by Hipster Hamish. I swear these glasses have magical powers that make me want to buy all the super-cutesy girly-girl things in the world.
And then I finally made it to Far East Plaza! I started on Level 1 and worked my way up. This particular mall had a lot of stores selling current fashion as well as cutesy gyaru/hime stuff, mori items, and accessories with some being priced very reasonably and some being more expensive.
The one piece I got - the photo is not accurate to colour, it's a mid-blue shade rather than royal purple-blue. Look, ruffles!
I'm normally a bright colours person rather than pastels, but I saw this and decided that I needed it in my life (this is the power of the glasses, ladies and gentlemen)
I also found some shoes for graduation. I initially very much wanted some diamante-encrusted silver-white pumps made by Anna Nucci with sky high heels and a platform were very much out of my price range, being 4 times as expensive as my dress was, and even other similar styles were going to set me back at least $100. See below: the shoes in question.
So I continued looking around and found some similar silver glitter peep-toe heels for $35. I think I may still add some rhinestones to them, but they are amazing and I can actually walk in them.
After several hours in Far East Plaza I decided to head elsewhere to find some food. I happened to walk past another street store claiming to be one of the best takeaway places in Singapore.
Apparently it's been around for over 50 years.
I then headed back towards the MRT as it was getting later in the day. I ended up going into Forever21 just to see what all the fuss is about since people often go on about how good it is. Quite honestly, there was nothing particularly special. This could've been because many of this season's colours don't suit me.
Exhibit A: peachy pink, cream, mint green. Colours that do not suit me.
On the other hand, brights are still a big trend, so there were other garments in colours that suited me. However, I was particularly looking for a high-collared long sleeved blouse (tricky to buy during Singapore summer!) and all the blouses and frilly vintage things come in colours seen above.
I also wanted a BB cream (all in one moisturiser/makeup/sunscreen) to match my skin tone, and although I looked in Missha and Sephora and some of the drugstore places, the ones that matched well were $40 which I thought was a little bit too much really, and I seemed to be one shade too dark for many of the drugstore brands (Maybelline, Garnier etc). I think since BB creams are aimed at a market that wants to be pale and I'm not particularly pale in Asian terms, it was making it a little harder. I managed to find one at Etude though! And also some other things...(undereye roller, powder, and freebies)
So, all in all I was very pleased with my loot. Once I've used the BB cream a bit I will know if it actually lives up to its promises (oil control/moisturiser/mostly waterproof/whitening)
