Sorry for the lack of updates here! We have been spending our time vintage hunting, weekends at estate sales, flea markets and thrifting to find stock for PicnicSunday Vintage. We’ve sent back to Singapore a fresh batch of vintage clothing, and in this batch, there’s a ton of vintage dresses, tops, blouses, skirts and even a couple of jumpsuits! We hope you love them as much as we do!
We add a new piece to the shop every couple of days, so to be alerted first on when it hits the shop, like us on facebook and follow us on instagram! Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions as well.

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.
Every restaurant week, hubby tan and my friends always aim to try 2 or 3 places. We booked La Cicala (a Spanish restaurant) with the girls and Brassarie Wolf for just us two. Both are non-starred restaurants, meaning lunch was $25++ and dinner at $35++. Brassarie Wolf’s dinner menu seemed very promising:
So, we just ordered one of everything so we could try it all.
The bread with Echire butter was really good but that’s probably because we were really hungry. So first up, the starters! The size of the foie gras almost gave me an instant heart attack but it was cooked really well, and went great with the accompanying salad. The portobello mushroom salad with goats cheese was very tasty and refreshing with the greens. Have to say the foie gras was a little too much for 1 to stomach though.
The mains did not disappoint either. The chicken was tender and mash so smooth and tasty. The sauce was a bit too tasty for us though, but I think that’s just the french style not suiting us singaporean taste buds. The red snapper on the risotto was the real star though, the fish was delicious all the way through, and the risotto addictively creamy and cheesy.
The desserts were kind of a let down, just ice cream presented a little fancy, but I’ve had much better profiteroles and baked alaska everywhere else. But we were so full from the previous courses it didn’t matter, it was just nice to have some refreshing ice cream.
Overall, it was a great restaurant week menu, especially the value it presented for a non-starred restaurant, the courses were hearty and delicious. Good one to try for the next restaurant week for sure!
