    Oh, Rouge & Ruche, how I’ve missed you so. Apologies for my short absence from this space. Over the past number of weeks, I’ve been weighed down by heavy work commitments which forced myself to pull away from Rouge & Ruche and focus on what’s necessary to survive in that rollercoaster of a month. I’m glad to see that some of you are still checking in every now and then, and I thank you for that. 🙂

    A few weeks ago, I managed to shoot a quick outfit that I styled with this relatively new vintage button-down. My first instinct was to pair it with some black jeans, leather boots and a dark lip – a foolproof outfit combination – but it’s simply way too hot and humid for that kind of dressing. Instead, I threw on some loose slacks and some strappy sandals to keep myself cool in the terrible weather this time of the year. I believe that the trick to pulling off a head-to-toe baggy look is to roll up the sleeves a little. This instantly adds a slight girly vibe to the whole getup and makes it look more put together and less lazy. Of course, a dark lip helps as well – I’m wearing my trusty Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Crush!

    P.S. Just a quick shoutout to my girl Aisha who’s co-organising the 2nd Chances Market! If you love looking for vintage and secondhand treasures as much as I do, that’s where you wanna be this coming Friday 😉 Check out 2CM’s Facebook page for more details!

    After months of staying off flea markets, I finally found myself in the hustle and bustle of one again sometime in late February, when a good friend from Australia was back in Singapore and wanted an affordable yet stylish fashion fix. I found this simple white button-down that had little lines going down the middle and across the front pocket. I thought that was rather cute! For this look, I wore it with some faded corduroy jeans and a pair of cleated sole loafers from Charles & Keith that I absolutely adore. The white reptilian leather-like texture and the metallic heel insert gave the shoes a polished look – elements that worked deliciously well with the more casual, fun details like the cleated sole and the velcro closure. The tiny black bag was a hand-me-down from my mom, which gave the entire look a little push towards the more “vintage” feel that I was going for.

    Times like these made me miss the markets and thrift stores overseas where I could find amazing bargains for as low as €1! Someone take me back to Europe, please?

    I had so much fun putting this outfit together! I’ve worn this polka dot button-down only once before with a black maxi skirt, when I was going for a vintage-inspired look. After leaving it in the closet for about a year and a half, I finally pulled it out earlier this week and thought to myself, “This will look pretty kickass with boots!” Then again… what doesn’t? Polka dots tone down and add a little fun into what would otherwise be a pretty Rocker Chick-ish ensemble. Accents of red in the form of a headscarf and lip colour were just what I needed to pull the entire look together. Another part of me was screaming “Use pink! Use pink!” as I was getting ready… but I guess I’ll leave that colour combination for another time 😉
