Dragged my body out of bed fairly early on Saturday morning (despite the energy draining night at Marcellie) to continue on with more funsome expenditure and stimulation of the economy - I calculated: my clothing expenditure for July hit an all time high of $400. So that's where my money went. Straits Times Classified Fashion & IT Show 2012! It mainly featured blogshops like thescarletroom and Runway Bandits among others, as well as some of the Parco Next Next designers like MASH-UP! and Kae Hana.
Since I registered online, I managed to get a "VIP Seating" (in essence, a seat. There was nothing VIP about it whatsoever. I just had, a seat.) ticket for the fashion show, which basically showcased some of the local blogshops who had exclusive manufactured designs and a short interview with their respective owners.
Out of all the shows, I probably enjoyed the pieces by Sandyjoy the most - they were solid looks with clean lines and a slight twist. Although I will argue against this general unsuitability of the clothes for people of less desirable figures and thigh sizes.
Feist Heist had a booth too, and they had $50 mystery goodie bags I regret not buying. There's not much risk involved: generally Feist Heist provides amazing basics that I can probably find a way to work into my wardrobe. I had to get a picture of these helpers at the modparade booth - they were dressed to complement each other in hues of denim and blues and overall flirty, cute tones.
Loved the set-up of the By Invite Only jewelry booth! If you missed out on it this year, fret not, because it can only get better next year. (With hopefully, saner clothing buffets.)
