I’m blogging about this on the go and I’m on a bus on the way to the gym. I was just at NEX mall in Serangoon for my weekly hair therapy at Svenson Hair Center (female hormones for hair loss, but that’s another story).
Anyway I stumbled into a Arthur Yen boutique by chance and I discovered some pretty wearables in larger sizes (up to a UK20, could be bigger but I didn’t look too carefully). This is a wonderful discovery as anything above UK12 is near impossible to find, save for old lady clothes and UK brands like Marks & Spencer, Dorothy Perkins etc. You know… Most Asian women are just impossibly small and petite.
I’ve always thought Arthur Yen did skinny people clothes with an OLOL (old lady old lady) vibe. Mostly conservative work clothes or evening wear. But I think I might be wrong!
Here are some of the pieces I tried on (all under SGD50 and there’s a sale on now):
Guess which 2 I ended up buying? I haven’t decided if I’m going to keep them or gift them to my sister. I do have too many clothes… and I have 4 new pieces from ASOS that I’ve just received in the mail heehee…
