There are times when the feathers of Little Miss Shopaholic get so terribly ruffled.
See, LMS does not believe in wearing “safe” outfits all the time. While she enjoys going back to the basics on occasion, she does not think that basics equates to everyday. Sure, that pair of legs-lengthening Levis topped with a cute little camisole looks grrrreat but dahhling, you cannot wear that sort of combi everyday, you know. So boring.
So LMS tries to mix and match, and put together contrasting looks. A tube dress doubling as a tunic worn over a pair of chocolate-brown tight jeans. A business shirt in white and blue stripes made casual by pulling one side over the other to form an asymmetric neckline, instead of the normal straight buttoning. A glittery, baby blue and white paisley top with this season’s favourite city shorts, ending with a pair of ballet pumps. White, resort-y gauchos and a brilliant blue snug polo tee, paired with blue suede wedge heels. Black pleated babydoll chiffon top over a tube top, topped with a cropped khaki shrug, a la SJP in Sex and the City.
But alas! For all her imagination and creativity, LMS is often the recipient of comments like “You look strange”. Or “these don’t go”. Sigh, no wonder Singapore has such a disastrous lack of artists!
LMS is still on the right end of the trailblazing 20s’ and she refuses to be apologetic for being daring. As a local fashion scribe says, it’s alright for a lamb to look like a lamb or a mutton, but totally gross for a mutton to masquerade as lamb.
So LMS says, “If there’s any time for fashionable lasses to experiment and try, it’s now!”
Don’t be afraid of snide comments, of cynical second looks, of discouraging shakes of heads. LMS gives you her blessings to go ahead and be a daring trendsetter instead of looking just like any other girl on the street!
Who says bermudas cannot be sexy?
