I’m An Online Shopping Addict

Yes, I’m as guilty as charged. Ever since I accidentally stumbled onto online shopping 12 years back (Oh no, I sound so old now). I’ve been buying practically almost everything online. From household groceries to baby supplies and even dog food, I get it all online. So naturally when it comes to my clothes, shoes and accessories, you bet that they are mostly bought online too.

I love how technology has brought the fashion world closer to us, we no longer need to set foot out of the house to purchase another dress. Just go online, click and check out. It is that simple. In fact, with the Internet, you could just check out the latest trends and what’s Princess Kate is wearing so that you can buy that same dress and hopefully cart out before it is sold out.

Even high fashion brands such as Burberry have jumped on board the online store bandwagon. Fans of the famous plaid prints can now check out their latest offerings on their webstore and cart out if anything catches your fancy. Other brands such as Chanel, have gone all social media savvy too and though you can’t buy a 2.55 online, you could however watch their latest fashion shows there or browse through their online catalogs.

CNY Shopping… Part I?

Ok, so I felt guilty for not updating my blog these few days. I have been busy with the baby and dog and a million other stuff which I don’t really know what… heh… I had to turn to the Internet for my CNY shopping.

Sadly, I’d only managed to get my footwear settled so far… Presenting my CNY kicks!

Year of Snake. From the Jungles to HDB!

Chinese Lunar New Year is just round the corner and as we usher in the Year of the Snake. Let me share with you some lovely snakeskin inspired items. Of course, faux snakeskin for me because poor snakes shouldn’t be sacrificed for the sake of fashion.

I totally adore snakeskin items, let me share some with you :

#1- Ballet Flats

I have several pairs of heels in faux snakeskin but nothing is as pretty as these ballet flats. The ribbons add a hint of innocence to the whole exotic look of the shoes.

#2 – Cardcase

It isn’t branded but I thought that this pale-colored faux snakeskin card case was really unique.

#3 – Handbag

One of the most common accessory to spot the snakeskin is the handbag. This Mulberry arm candy oozes elegance & sex appeal.

#4 – Iphone Case

Love the texture of this matt mauve snakeskin iPhone casing.

#5 – Apparel

Hints of snakeskin on apparel can add sophistication to your image. This is a very gorgeous classic-looking skirt.

As you can see, snakeskin in different shades are unique and can add some fun into your whole look 😉 Visit our Fashion column for the latest glitteringly awesome Fashion trends and news.

Flipflops can be harmful for your feet

After splurging S$60 on a pair of new Havaianas black flip-flops, I chanced upon this article by HerWorldPlus, stating on how they are not recommended for extensive walking.

OMG, seriously? Now that I’m banned from wearing anything remotely with a heel. I have been seeking comfort in flats and flipflops naturally. Hence, the new purchase of another pair of Havaianas too.

I’ve done shopping in my flip-flops and found them the most comfortable footwear for extensive walking around town. So now, you’re telling me that they might wreck havoc on my feet? Oh no :(

According to the American Podiatric Medical Association, flip-flops offer no arch support, heel cushioning, or shock absorption when compared with shoes. Also, exposing our feet in such footwear would result in sun damage. Honestly, I have not thought that much about it and admit that I do not slather sunscreen on my feet at all. But it’s recommended that you do so if you are wearing flip-flops.

So while flip-flops are great for the beach or swimming pools, experts recommend proper shoes when going for extensive walks and I’m pretty sure that includes shopping.

So perhaps, it time to chuck those flip-flops aside and opt for other suitable footwear the next time you are to head out for a shopping trip.

Charles & Keith QC really FAIL! (PART II)

Previously, I had complained to Charles & Keith about this pair of heels which I’d bought. You can read about it and view the photos in the PRECIOUS BLOG ENTRY. I thought it was my imagination till I went to measure the straps at the side. There was a discrepancy! One side had longer straps then the other.

Though, yes, I must applaud their customer service team for the swift action taken to reply my queries and allowing an exchange. However, I am upset that a mistake had happened without anyone noticing.

It turns out that the ENTIRE batch had a problem! I believe I am not the first shopper to have purchased this design – CK1-60360400. And all 3 colors for this design are affected, please check your heels if you had bought the same design as me.

It’s really such a disappointment cause I really like this design a lot.

Charles & Keith Shoes QC Failed?

This is an open letter to Charles & Keith.

I have been a fan of C&K heels for the longest time and in my recent purchase of 3 pairs of lovely heels. I found one of them to be defective… I thought it was my imagination when I tried the heels. I even tried 2 pairs and then dismissed the thought that something was wrong with the right heel.

Today is the 1st day I’m wearing them out and it has been pretty uncomfortable. It feels like as though one of the straps on the right side is longer than the one of the left. My left heel is very comfortable and fits me snugly unlike the right side. Initially, I thought that perhaps my right foot was a tad bit bigger or smaller than the size I bought.

Anyway, curiosity got the better of me and I decided to measure the strap.

LEFT HEEL which has no problems:

As you can clearly see it’s 2.5cm.

Whereas on the RIGHT heel, the problem heel…

*GASP* It’s more close to 3cm! No wonder the baby toe on my right foot feels weird and out of place because there is GAP of approximately 0.5cm.

Even in the above photo, it’s pretty obvious that the RIGHT side’s strap is longer. What a pity because I really like this pair of heels.

So, CHARLES & KEITH, what do you have to say about this?
Was this part of a defective batch?
