Silk and cashmere

I'm obsessing about owning a silk and cashmere cardigan after touching Zara's silk and cashmere sweater. It's soooo soft and warm. Unfortunately, the Zara sweater is a ugly pullover; not very enticing design.

A look at Victoria's Secret and I've found the ONE!

Silk & cashmere v-neck cardigan sweater
cobalt (J76) (29USD)

So pretty. The v-neck and the little puff at the sleeve is perfect!

another possibility (if I manage to find a pic of it) is:

Silk & cashmere long cardigan sweater
j09-regal blue (19USD)

Rainy day shoes

The recent downpour has ruined at least one pair of shoes for me and another is going to die soon. I'm in dire need of shoes that can withstand the constant wetness and still be comfy to my poor feet.

Melissa jelly shoes (sold at Novo) seems to be a good choice. It's jelly, meaning it wouldn't be ruined by the rain (it's plastic), and forum reviews are relatively positive.

I'm eyeing:

severine (any colour, especially in lilac), ultragirl felt (in purple glitter) and lastly jb leslie in blue felt.

My top choice is severine but it's out of stock in Novo Marina Square =(
Will check out the Suntec branch soon in hope of finding it. Otherwise it's ultragirl or leslie, depending on which is in stock.

Update: Novo Suntec City still carries severine in size 5, but it cost S$39.90. Sigh. Must wait for sale, hopefully those 20% storewide sales, before I can afford to buy a pair.

La Senza sale

La Senza is having its 50% sale (I saw 70% off at Tampines Mall as well).

I love the bras. I bought one for S$17.50 and another at S$11.70. They are so much cheaper than brands like Wacoal or Triumph. The fit also suits my body very well.

La Senza sales are value for money. Even though the website may have clearances and newer designs, nothing beats going instore for trying on the clothes or bras. After factoring shipping cost, shopping instore is cheaper as well.

That said, I'm wishing that La Senza would bring in their unwired bras (because I hate underwires):

La Senza ITECTM High Shine Unwired, LS Itec Printed No Wire

Maybe I'll try to look out if they stock La Senza So FreeTM Triangle Unwired on sale.
I'm also waiting for these to go on sale:

La Senza Precision FitTM Bra, 360° Convertible Strapless (not too sure if the strapless is still available instore.)

I'm tempted by these (not yet in Singapore) online offers:

La Senza LoveTM Senorita Lace Bra, Exquisite Lightly Lined Bra, Temptress Printed Bra

Update: La Senza So FreeTM Triangle Unwired is available at La Senza Suntec City. However it cost S$59 originally, even if it goes under the 50% discount, it is still a little out of reach for me. That said, it is really a comfortable everyday bra, if but a little plain (in nude).

Also, heard on the forums that they no longer bring in the strapless bra. =( How could they do such an evil thing to me? I guess I'll have to try the nipple tape route now.

boot envy

I'm having boot envy... dreaming of a pair of knee-high comfortable boot (in leather, not suede).

From Aerosoles:

Tall shafted boot with an unmistakable rock 'n roll edge. Supple leather upper detailed with a round toe, leather tie and antiqued brass ring. Full length side zipper plus a shorter gusseted zipper for a flexible fit. Extra cushioned footbed and breathable lining on a 2" covered heel. Brown or black leather.

A classual classic done up with curvy lines and bold antiqued buckle. Full length side zipper plus a shorter gusseted zipper for a flexible fit. Extra cushioned footbed with breathable leather in sole on a 1½" heel and flexible rubber sole. Brown or black leather.

I like the look of Assemble a lot more than Tint cess; it's classier and more glam. However, Tint cess looks more comfortable and rugged (with a lower heel).
Wonder if the Aerosoles in Singapore stocks them?

For some non-boot options that look quite presentable and comfortable (afterall, I need comfortable shoes.):

This ultra-ladylike mary jane in soft, supple suede offers a feminine counterpart to fall's hottest tailored looks. Shapely 2¾" crepe wedge heel. Antiqued brass buckle. Sueded lining on an extra cushioned footbed adds breathability and comfort. Gray, black or brown suede.

This is one of the sweetest mary janes I've seen. The suede just makes it look so soft and cushy.

Victoria's Secret lust II

part 2 of my Victoria's Secret wishlist, the bras and panties.

Let's start from the basics.

The wireless bras (because wireless is just more comfortable):

Victoria's Secret PINK® Wireless padded bra

this has more colour options. I'm thinking of getting candy stars (shown), vivid loops or miami stripes.

Cheaper option would be to get

Very Sexy® Secret Embrace™ push-up bra is cool because of the contrast lining. It's a snow leopard print inside. Rawwrrrr....

Angels by Victoria's Secret® Secret Embrace™ invisible lace push-up bra is a nice lacy bra. I want the black/cherry pink one!

Very Sexy® NEW! 100-way strapless convertible bra with lace is too lovely for words.
I want! I want! Beautiful, plus convertible! Drool-worthy!

Cotton panties:

Victoria's Secret PINK® Classic double-string v-string (backseat blue, backseat white, whimsical stars, over the top pink)

VS Cotton™ NEW! Girl boxer (starry stripe, superstar)

VS Cotton™ Low-rise boyshort (silver snow, snowflakes, starstruck)

Victoria's Secret PINK® Extreme low rider boy brief (spider dog, ice cream scoop, cosmo dog, pups, heather love song)


Sexy Little Things™ Lace-trim hiphugger (hot spot pink, hot spot black)

Very Sexy® Scalloped sleek thong (black galaxy, pink star bright)

Pout™ NEW! Embroidered thong (black cupcake, pink candy, red candy)
