Shoe story

Yay! TWO people enjoyed my previous post! I feel like a real blogger now. Could I be the next xia xue???

Anyway, got these pics of Khloe Kardashian’s (love her) shoe closet off The Coveteur.

And I’m thinking to myself, do you need so many black shoes?? It’s so excessive I’m not even jealous. I always own 1 pair of black heels at a time. When they start to wear out or I get sick of them I will retire them and buy a new pair. I can’t imagine owning a hundred pairs of sick black shoes and having to choose among them every time I was going out. I’ll probably feel so bad for all the shoes I’m not wearing and have this internal debate for at least an hour.

But I know it’s different for everyone. Some people just like to collect them and fondle/caress them and be surrounded by beautiful shoes everyday and feel happy about it. Like my mom she has a hundred wrap dresses that look the same. But she camps out at DvF and Laundry and still falls in love all over again when she spots a new one.

NOT FOR ME! I’m a super level headed shopper 🙂 People should hire me to be their shopping controller. I analyze your financial situation, analyze the product, analyze the potential all too well.  But then again the amount of money you pay me could get you a new pair of loubis! Just kidding, it could get you a pair of Jimmy Choos.

The perfect picture of excess.

I’ve been wearing my Toms everywhere everyday for the past half a year. And I feel good about it because I did a good deed! But I think it’s time for a change and I am thinking of buying these babies as my new everyday shoes:

What do you think?

Maybe I will have a bigger obsession with shoes in the future when I have to dress up more. But right now I am in the same tshirt and jeans everyday, I don’t even care if my shoes match as long as they’re practical and comfortable. My mom is always complaining. The story is, if I’m just going to school or coffee bean I really couldn’t care less about my bare face or shoe choice.

But just to clarify I’m not totally a slob… I am super particular about the cutting of my tshirts n jeans, n my purses. still love me some good shoes too. I’m hoping and praying that the Miu Miu Polka dot shoes from Spring go on sale soon so I can snap them up.. You see, I’m on a SHOEstring budget :p

And the key is to select versatile shoes that fit in with your every day life.

PS Cafe @ Ann Siang Hill

Checked out the newest PS Cafe over the weekend with my gfs. The one that infamously banned kids from its premises when it opened. Which consequently invited a lot of criticism. But I don’t necessarily find it a bad thing. The location of this new branch at Ang Siang Hill is generally not even family-friendly to begin with. People who frequent this area range from young adults to expats, on a normal day you wouldn’t really find a child roaming around. If they had wanted to make their Dempsey or Palais branches kid-free, that would present more of a problem and lose them a lot of customers.

PS Cafe is also trying to make its foray into the bar/pub scene, with 2 bars in their 3-storey establishment, one on the ground floor and one on the rooftop. That, I believe, is the main reason for its newly imposed age requirement. To continually expand their brand and lure loyal PS Cafe enthusiasts to their out-of-the-way location, the only way was to make use of their established PS Cafe brand name. They could have easily called it a random Tom/Dick/Harry Cafe/Bar with a 40-year-old age requirement and it probably wouldn’t have attracted half the criticisms.

However it remains very popular despite any controversy and the restaurant was fully booked out during our visit. Our request for another table (because we weren’t happy with ours) could not be fulfilled. At our table was this huge vase of plant that made us feel as if we were dining in a rainforest. It doesn’t SOUND like it’s a problem but seriously, the leaves were in my face the whole time and if it had drooped any lower I probably would have eaten it together with my food. If possible, request for a table on the top floor as it is dimmer and feels more romantic for dinner. The second floor where I dined had a more cafe vibe. The crowd seemed to mainly comprise of girls on a girls night out.

Decor is standard PS Cafe, as you can tell from the pictures below. The rooftop bar is very quiet and seems like a nice place to unwind. We agreed that this PS is the most similar to that of Palais Renaissance, though we still prefer the high ceilings and spaciousness of Palais. Table seatings were pretty cramped at ASH.

Food wise we ordered the standard truffle fries, a laksa pesto, veggie lasagna and I had the flamed prawns. Nothing to shout about here! Was mildly disappointed that my dish was overly creamy.

Kim Kardashian wearing something I like??

Holy shit? What is happening? I’m actually loving Kim Kardashian’s outfit. Don’t get me wrong I LOVE Kim Kardashian everyone knows that. A good friend even gifted me with Kim Kardashian perfume and lotion set on my birthday, which was on 8 April, incidentally the day this photograph of Kim was taken. Coincidence?

Kim Kardashian knows how to look good, you gotta give her that. She dresses to flatter her figure well and it takes seriously mad skills. Because quite honestly I think she is fat. Ooops but she plays tricks on your mind with the help of belts and heels and you get the illusion that she is hot.

And compared to her Paris Hilton days I think she’s really classed it up. I watch the Kardashians on E all the time and Kim seems to be a really good girl to me. She’s really mellow and sort of a prude- like me. I admit, I’m a prude, but whatever. Kim Kardashian is one too!

Love everything about this outfit maybe minus the out of place hat and the flashy Hermes belt. Tuck the shirt out and I’m all set lol. Really love the jeans she has on.

Since we are on the topic, more outfits made for me…
My style icon/ hero/ goddess Emmanuelle Alt swoon. And below is the most adorable Chinese model du jour Shu Pei.

Natalia Vodianova: Vogue US May 11

I keep three blogs. It never really bothered me because I was mostly amusing myself with all three. Blog a bit here and a bit there. Now it is starting to seem a bit silly and ridiculous! I can’t even decide where I want to blog what anymore.

Anyway taking a break from the Asians for a minute, because today (meaning Sunday 17 April 2011) was a Busy (with a capital B) day for Asians. In Singapore there was the Star Awards (not much to be said about that) and in Hong Kong the 30th Hong Kong Film Awards were held. It was a star-studded affair so a stream of photos will surely appear here over the next few days.

For now, some ang moh spirit from Natalia Vodianova for Vogue US May 11. I always look out for Natalia’s shoots ever since her July 2010 spread in Vogue US.

Tsumori Chisato Retrospective Singapore 2011

I am on a roll! I figured I might as well. Anyway recently the Tsumori Chisato retrospective was held at Forum. And as usual being my critical and picky (or maybe narrow minded if you like) self I do not like their clothing very much. You can google to find pictures from the exhibition. Anyway, I found pictures of people (real life people!) at the event so I’m just going to share whatever few treasured finds here. It’s quite funny because i actually signed up for some lucky draw to win Tsumori Chisato party invites but I didn’t get them. Maybe that explains my bitterness…

Oops, were you expecting more? Hee. I’m sorry.


To shed a bit of light on the local fashion scene in Singapore, David Gan and gang seem to be the most prominent group. And they know it. They are a show off-y and way too flashy, in my opnion. Honestly I feel quite embarrassed by their fashion choices, not because I am unaccepting of avante garde tastes or whatever but I don’t feel they can quite pull it off very well!
However i am in love with Fann Wong’s glasses in the last picture. Plus points!


Saw the glasses worn by Fann Wong when I was shopping at On Pedder. They are completely gold! I love those.

Rene Liu

I have discovered the void of asian fashion blogging. So I’m going to fill those shoes starting from now. Because besides me, no one really knows/ thinks that Asian people are well dressed. We get way less credit than we deserve. Asian streetstyle images or even photos from events are far and few. Whereas even the trashiest people like Tara Reid and Heidi Montag get featured on fashion blogs and magazines, albeit on the worst dressed lists.

Enough talking. I’ll start my latest venture with a picture of Rene Liu (“Nai Cha” Liu Ruo Ying) at *unknown place* wearing *unknown designer* (besides her bougainvillea birkin bag) looking fabulous. I just love seeing birkins with their flaps closed over the top.

I know, my blogging career is off to bad start with so many *unknown* unchecked facts. But a picture paints a thousand words.
