Rogan dress, Sonia Rykiel for H&M corset, Miu Miu bag, Anteprima platform sandals
C and I popped by the new DKNY store at Paragon on a lovely afternoon in September for the Fall Collection presentation and stylists' workshop - lady-like pieces were on show, as were sweet cocktail looks that have become the chic mainstay of the DKNY line; one of my favourites is the dress in the second photo above - with tiny flowers sewn on all over the skirt. If you're in Singapore, do visit the store - they have a cafe! The store at Palais Renaissance used to have a cafe up until the renovation of the store in 2005 (I remember going to the newly renovated store for the FW05 preview, at least). Enjoy some refreshing drinks and little tidbits for a break from shopping!
The dress I wore, an eco-friendly knit dream of a piece made of baby alpaca wool, presented a bit of a dilemma because of the netting at the sides - for a day look, I wore a corset under and snipped off the legs of a pair of tights to provide more coverage. C donned her DKNY S/S 2010 light wooden strappy wedge sandals with a DKNY-worthy summer dress.
My outfit later easily took me to a party celebrating J's birthday, where the theme was Youthful Minimalism. As the night went on and I celebrated my last Saturday in Singapore before college, the daze took over and we all reveled in our youth, mistaken, perfect, marred, and whatever we made it out to be.
