I’ve never been a big fan of Coach, but I’ve been a fan of the blog blushing ambition for a while now, and her photos. In many of her photos, shes carrying a sling coach bag, which I assumed it was vintage. When I was in USA and on etsy, I always keep a look out for these vintage coach sling bags, but the quality/price/colour is never a perfect fit (ie. good quality but high price and non ideal colour).
However, I started beginning to notice that this range of bag was called the Coach Willis Bag, so it made it easier to search, but I also found out that Coach has made a collection called Coach Classics, remaking and reissuing all the classic bags of yesteryear. And I would actually be happy to carry most of the leather bags on this page.
Best of all, they remade the Willis, and I ordered it almost immediately, and of course in British Tan. Yum! Best of both worlds, a vintage remake with all the colours available at a good price as well. I actually love a lot of the other remakes as well and would love to get my hands on them, but the Willis will do for now! Even though I’ve a bit slow on the curve, I just had to blog about these great vintage remakes Coach was doing, as you may not see these beauties for a long time after this season’s over.

I don’t really shop at Uniqlo except for underwear and winter essentials, but I was mucking about in Vivocity a week ago waiting for hubby Tan, and being a sucker for vintage and bright prints, I was instantly drawn to the new collaboration uniqlo have with Orla Kiely! I’ve always loved Orla Kiely’s prints, but always felt her stuff was a bit pricey, so a uniqlo collaboration is perfect for the pockets! I grabbed everything I liked and made a dash for the changing room:
I ended up with the red dress (pockets sucked me in!) and a the blue sleeveless top which I can’t wait to wear tucked into a skirt! There’s quite a crazy variety of prints in tops, scarves and blouses available, so do drop by Uniqlo today!

I used to love stuff in H&M whenever I visited Europe during my uni days and Norway when I started work. They had such a variety of stuff and all kinds of diverse designs. However, visiting H&M in HK a few years ago and in USA this year, I find H&M stuff getting more and more vanilla. I think they filter the stuff that goes out to the foreign branches, so in USA its very clean basics and I hoped the Singapore branch wouldn’t be the same.
I headed to H&M one weekday afternoon after a mad trying spree at Topshop Knightbridge (and I love topshop), so going from the great styles at topshop to H&M i wasn’t very blown away by the clothes there. But it was huge! 3 floors of goods means it was definitely more diverse than the branches I visited in US, but yet I couldn’t find anything that stood out enough to me to tackle the changing room queues or to want to purchase. They had very clean classic styles which were not my style but I have to say its a great shopping experience by the sheer volume of clothes there. And it wasn’t very overpriced either which was nice. Here’s some stuff that was quirky enough to stand out to me:
I’m not as excited about H&M arriving to Singapore but due to the size of the store here, I’m looking forward to H&M’s summer collection more next year!
I recently discovered this great street snaps blog, based in New York and San Fran, and that means tons of people decked out in vintage. And going through it, I found so many great examples on how to wear certain vintage pieces, here are some of my favourites:
Vintage blouses have great versatility! Tuck it into some shorts or pants, or layer it with a cardi, to contrast the blouse or the collar. In Singapore, I love wearing vintage blouses with some denim shorts and its great for weekends.
I love these 2 looks, so so simple and classic. Their shoes just complete their simple looks. Pair vintage shoes with vintage dresses and a simple blouse and pants and it looks great!
And of course the vintage dress! It’s the simplest statement piece, just accessorise with a belt, a great bag, or with a denim jacket as pictured. Vintage dresses can give you a great overall look and stand out from the crowd.
We have launched a small shoe collection with 4 pairs of delectable vintage shoes!
1. Stormy Day Shoes: Labelled RED CROSS SHOES. Not sure where its made.
2. Yummy Brown Oxfords: Labelled connie. Made in Brazil.
3. Coffee Heeled Oxfords: Labelled NORSTROM. Made in Italy.
4. Striped Down Shoes: Labelled Pappagallo. Made in Spain.
I was never a big fan of Vans shoes till I set eyes on these pair of shoes, the Camryn.
I own 2 pairs of this, one in Tan and one in Black/Gum. They are the perfect sneaker for pairing with that vintage dress or any floral dress for that matter.
I bought a pair in US, and a was delighted to find it in Singapore too, so I bought it in another colour. It might still be at the shops. Vans has recently opened quite a few full fledged Vans shops here in Singapore and they were very helpful in helping me get my size. You can find Vans branches in Singapore at Orchard Central in Somerset or at Marina Square!
Collection 2 is finally out, I really hope something catches your eye!
Ray of Greenlight Dress >> Many Matchsticks Dress >> Anchored Firmly Dress
Oh So Professional Dress >> Peachy Floral Blouse >> Flowers and Lightning Dress
