The Local People Sg Art Market

Jacelyn Phang X Art Flea 2016

Visited The Local People Art Flea  to support local designers and entrepreneurs last Friday and was pleasantly surprised by the huge turnout for the event! Tanjong Pagar Railway track was massively packed from the entrance and I could barely moved from stalls to stalls inside.

The Local People Sg Art Flea

As someone who has always been interested in entrepreneurial activities, I  am really happy to see Singaporeans supporting local businesses. I considered myself extremely blessed to have been able to be on the prestigious NUS Overseas College (NOC) program where I had the opportunity to study in Fudan University and interned in a start up company of my choice in Shanghai for a year. The overseas and internship experience in a start-up was enriching and life-changing. It changed my perspective of life, and I am so glad I get to live my entrepreneurial dreams now that I am managing Le Queenz too! #supportlocal

Anyway, the flea had many handmade items and if you would like unique accessories, quirky items and indie products, you will definitely love the flea! More importantly, you will also get to support local entrepreneurs with dreams together with the courage to pursue their dreams 🙂 To find out more about the local people’s upcoming flea, follow them on @thelocalpeoplesg on IG or follow their Facebook account here.

Flirty Friday with Pur Pur

Jacelyn X Pur Pur Blue Tube White Skorts Jacelyn X Pur Pur Feb 2016 Jacelyn X Pur Pur

Dressed in a full outfit from Pur Pur, featuring a blue floral frills tube top and a D-ring white skorts. I like that the outfit is feminine and chic at the same time, it is perfect for everyday wear and even to casual dinner dates. The versatile top can be worn two ways, either as a tube top or an off-shoulder top depending on how you like it. Either way, it’s perfect for our tropical climate and you can show off your collarbone at the same time (think fun and sexy!). The skorts is both girly and convenient for you when running errands; there’s going to be zero worry about up-skirt situations.

Follow me on Instagram (@jacelynphang) to see more outfit inspirations. Meanwhile, have fun shopping; there’s no reason not to happy when you could be shopping 🙂

CNY Shopping

If you haven’t start your CNY shopping, fret not, here’s a quick article to introduce my top 5 favorite places to get clothes.

  1. Love Bonito

Love Bonito fryda-jacquard-dress

For friends who know me, you would have known I’m a HUGE fan of Love Bonito! You can expect to find classic, simple and value-for-money designs suitable for daily/work wear. The best part is you can do a fuss free of exchange of clothes if the size doesn’t fit!

P.S. they also have very consistent sizing, so you don’t have to worry about fitting in different sizes for every piece. (i.e. if you a size S for dress A, you can be sure to fit in size S for dress B, C, D, E…)

  1. Oh Vola

Oh Vola bora-mesh-lace-set

My recent favorite has got to be Oh Vola! They have modern and inexpensive designs suitable for work or for casual wear. Not forgetting that their customer service team is super efficient, nice and helpful! I bought a lace skirt with a slight defect from their retail store, emailed them, no further questions were asked and I was allowed for an exchange the next day!

3. MFW Store

MFW Store CNY Dress

For casual pieces and cute phone cases, I love MFW Store! It is more suitable for youngsters looking for fun, flirty and playful designs.

  1. City Plaza @ Paya Lebar

01city-plaza

The wholesale center at Paya Lebar is where most blogshops get their supply of clothes! Take time to comb through the shops, you’ll definitely not be disappointed with the number of items you can get. The down side however is that there’s usually no price tags along with the clothes; so I do find it troublesome to ask for prices sometimes. Go with a couple of friends because there’s room for discounts when you get a few pieces!

P.S. bring along more CASH with you because most shops don’t transact with NETS or cards.

  1. Carousell – @bernicelove and @iluvfashionclothings

tumblr_static_92by87xbso4k0o84ksskkw0o8

For second hand good deals, I frequently visit these sellers as they have really nice items on sale. Their items are well maintained, as good as new and most importantly a fraction of the usual price!

P.S. If you fancy the blue lace dress featured in the featured image, it is from Fashmob. Dress material is slightly thin, but the colour stands out in photos & I have gotten SO MANY compliments in it.

Happy shopping for now!

With love, Jace

Work OOTD

Jacelyn Phang Work Chic Outfit

Work outfits doesn’t always mean black & white or boring. My work wear philosophy had always been “don’t blend in when you can stand out”.

Get noticed with
1. Unique accessory (it’s always a great conversation starter!), or
2. Bright colors (ain’t no time to be a wallflower) and
3. Fitted outfits (you look smart instantly)

“If summer could be a person, it would be Star Clozetter JacelynPhang! Her boldly printed pencil skit and bright green halter top aren’t what you would expect someone to wear during the fall season, but going against fashion rules surely paid off! Her gorgeous pencil skirt hugged her body beautifully, while her halter top and large sunglasses pulled the whole look together for one classy OOTD.” – Tisha Caedo, Feature Writer of Clozette

Singapore Fashion Runaway Model

“Experience is one thing you can’t get for nothing” – Oscar Wilde.

Halloween was spent modeling for Singapore Fashion Runway’s last community event at Blisshouse. For a short one hour runaway show, a lot of sweat and work had been put in to make it a success. It’s been a pleasure working with local fashion brands as I’ve been an avid supporter of SG brands (Hey, I’m a proud Singaporean!).

The experience was made fun not just because I get to get filmed by Channel News Asia or because I get to wear nice clothes, rather, it’s really the new friends that I make that makes such work so enjoyable. Such experience is priceless & I urge you to push yourself to experience new things every now and then. Every experience opens a whole new world X

Love, Jace

Shoot Me

Lately I’ve been trying out different styles of clothes that aren’t my usual feminine style, and I love this floral prints romper that is not too girly. The spaghetti strap design is also perfect for our tropical weather climate.

Black Maxi ShopPrincessa X Jace

This little black dress doesn’t snuggle me too tight on my hips, which is a good dress to go to when I just want to be a casual slob. The irregular design also gives it a touch of sexiness yet not losing its modesty.

Not sure how much you like the colour black, but decking in an all-black outfit is soul comforting for me. I don’t need bright colours to help me stand out and there really isn’t anything as slimming and as flattering in black.

Necklace: Love Bonito

Dress: Princessa

Oui Valentino X Jace

Dress: The Valentino, Oui.sg

Twirling in this dress reminds me of what butterflies might feel like when they flutter.  The colours on this dress are so outstanding, you will stand out whenever you go. A very conservative dress that gave me an extra touch of elegance.

On a side note, this tumblr site is temporary while my main blog is under construction. I am definitely looking forward for changes soon! x

Love, Jace
