It’s Friday! The weeks are just zooming by so quickly! Where did the time go?? I know what I’m doing with my time today though! I’ve taken half the day off to hang out with my gal pals aka The SPArty Girls! We’re going to HOUSE @ Dempsey for their Vintage High Tea. I read a bunch of reviews and blog posts… TOTALLY SOLD! See here, here and here. I hope we have a lovely time later today. I might share some pictures in my next post… if I remember. There’s a possibility that I would get so distracted and greedy that I’ll totally forget to document the afternoon!

In other news, I am looking to revamp my blog after using free WordPress templates since Day 1. I have some ideas of what I want to have on it and the ideal layout but T hasn’t been able to get that going even though he tried. I’ve looked at some premade templates on Etsy that I liked but weren’t exactly what I have in mind. Also, many of the premade templates don’t work with my free wordpress account and I have to get a self-hosted one or works only on blogspot. I want a 3 column layout (2 sidebars) with a customized photo header that changes, and a clickable custom image link menu under that. Any ideas or suggestions? Some examples of what I like are THIS, THIS, THIS and THIS.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black bra tank top from UNIQLO

Bottom: Mint swing skirt and Peach Meringue petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Accessories: Stack of 4 plastic bangles from PRIMARK; Purple stretch belt (free with DOROTHY PERKINS dress); Orange polka-dotted hair bow from thestreetsofbangkok; Black & grey mirrored acrylic necklace from THE BLACKGROUND (at Far East Plaza)

Footwear: Brown Kandy Oxfords from Le Bunny Bleu (at Bugis+)

How cute are my shoes???!! I love love love them so much! Comfort and chic are the most important thing especially if you’re gonna be on your feet all day! There were 3 different colour combinations and I couldn’t decide which one so I picked the one I felt I could match with the most number of outfits. I wish I had them all! In fact, I want all the Le Bunny Bleu shoes I saw!! These KANDY OXFORDS are currently retailing for SGD83 but ask for the wastedfashion discount and pay only SGD74.70!

Bought 7 of the 25 gifts I’m supposed to get and I’ve started counting down to my holiday! In less than 45 days, I’ll be back in Las Vegas. Then T and I will be travelling over several weekends (because he still has to work) to visit friends and family in California, Arizona and New York. YIPPIEE!

Talking about New York, did you hear that LeBunny Bleu is now in Singapore? We don’t have to make the trek to their NYC headquarters anymore! There is a LeBunny Bleu shop at Bugis+ (the mall formerly known as Illuma) and is located at the bridge connecting Bugis+ to Parco Bugis Junction. I love LeBunny Bleu for their quirky spins on classics like flats, canvas slip-ons, loafers and oxfords. And because they are mostly sensible shoes instead of ridiculously high heels, they’re exactly in line with my desire for comfort and style. Also, how can you resist their adorable bunny logo? It’s on everything! You also get to sit on bunny chairs while trying out shoes in the store! Prices in Singapore are comparable to their US-based online store, ranging from SGD60 – 95. The benefit is that you get to touch and feel the shoes in person, as well as save on shipping charges!
