You Know How I Love Games…
Monday, August 21, 2006
I might not have gotten out of my jammies today if not for Coquette's Carnivale of Couture, where everyone shares the fashion item they're most sad to give up at the end of the summer and the thing they desperately want for fall. It works a little differently for those of us who live in tropical climates, but you know how it makes us giddy to participate in these types of things.
And so. At left: I'd be most sad to give up my beautiful new flower-print dress, which I have worn almost constantly since it was purchased at the very cute Juliette, a fun little boutique I stumbled upon in the Holland Village Shopping Mall here in Singapore (it's store #02-02/03, phone: 6466 2527). Luckily, I don't have to put it away since it will be 88 degrees all winter here too.
At right: I would love an opportunity to wear some of my favorite autumn-appropriate vintage pieces that are just sitting in storage, like this fantastic gray wool tuxedo jacket (with tails!). I'm strategically planning some fall trips -- the U.S. in mid-October, Japan in mid-November -- that will give me an excuse to pull out some cold-weather clothes this year. Hurrah!
