Yes, call this a blatantly biased opinion but I don’t care – Earl Grey Party (EGP) is Singapore’s best online fashion store. I have seen its brand name grow from a humble little page on LiveJournal to what it currently is now: a beautifully designed e-store teeming with an amalgamation of basic tees, trendy pieces and hot hot hot shoes. Furry, EGP’s founder, also happens to be a good friend of mine and trust me, this girl knows her fashion.
I’m blogging about EGP, NOT because I got paid a ridiculous amount of money to feature the site (which btw would be nice since this site costs $$ to run, what about it Furry? ;p) but this afternoon, Furry decided to publish a profile/interview piece I wrote on her. It was for a school assignment that required me to interview someone interesting and Furry was an obvious choice. I am extremely honored to be featured on EGP’s web blog. Thank you so much for your time, Furry!
You guys can read the interview on EGP’s blog HERE HERE HERE. (FORK YEAH I’m shamelessly plugging my own work)
If you like the clothes featured in this entry, they’re available for purchase at www.earlgreyparty.com
And a special announcement:
To all the girls who managed to get this top from EGP’s previous collection BEFORE I DID, I’ve gotten your addresses from Furry and will be STALKING your houses the minute I fly back to Singapore. The minute you emerge from your house with this top on, I will swoop in and forcibly take what is RIGHTFULLY MINE.
K fine, before I get slapped with a restraining order and a lawsuit, I will say the paragraph is an obvious fake. STILL JEALOUS OF YOU GIRLS THOUGH.
I bring you some shoe porn today since I, er, bought 3 pairs of shoes the past month. I knowww! This addiction is getting slightly ridiculous but they make me so blissfully happy whenever I look at them ~_~
If you know me well enough, you would know that my entire shoes collection are made of flats and skyscraper heels 4″ high and above. I’m no fan of kitten heels and anything below the magical 4″ number because I think kitten heels produce an opposite effect; instead of lengthening your legs, they make you appear thicker in the legs..kinda like a walking tree stump in heels – not so hot.
BUT BUT BUT! I will make the exception to my 4″ rule if a) the shoes are REALLY cute b) the heel height is above 3″ c) it’s well-made and I think my new pair of heels are just that ;D
AREN’T THEY JUST ADORABLE? *_* They’re 3.5″ high and come in this incredibly pretty pewter grey color. I got them at EARLGREYPARTY which is an online shop owned by my friend, Furry! She brings in a great range of shoes and clothes direct from Korea that don’t cost an arm, a leg and your first born child!
We were both in design school together and she decided after graduation to start up her own online shop (such a risk-taker, I love it!). I think she has an amazing taste in fashion, she knows what we girls want so I highly recommend that you check her site out! The site is currently undergoing a major makeover but if you go to the website, there’s a special promotion going on where you enter your email address and you get to win some awesome discount coupons! Oh and she ships worldwide too, cool beans.
Let’s get over the cute and move on to the SEX. I LOVE MY NEW ANKLE BOOTS! I like the classic design, no stupid studs, no feathers poking out – just full on suede. It’s just sexy and timeless. This was the last pair in my size at the recent TOPSHOP sale, I tried them on with absolutely no intention of buying but once they were on my feet, that was the end of it lol. I ~HAD~ TO HAVE IT.
I love the spikey heel, I hope I don’t step on anyone when I wear the shoes out because it will probably hurt like a mother. Speaking of mothers, it’s my mom’s birthday today! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMEH! ✿ We’ll be having her birthday dinner at the Hyatt Hotel this weekend so I can’t wait for that! I hope she likes my present (I got her some lipstuff from Estee Lauder & MAC) Ok *COUGH* BACK TO SHOES.
So from the cute to the sexy, we now move on to the PRACTICAL. I don’t wear heels everyday because a) I don’t have a car b) I don’t have a chauffeur to drive me around c) I don’t want to kill my feet before I’m 40 and fabulous.
I bought these Papillio Birkenstock sandals online, they’re actually one size bigger (it was on sale so they only had one size left) but I don’t mind because they are extremely comfortable and they’re nice to look at! I am loving the metallic steel blue texture and the lil’ crystals embedded at the side ♥
In the shoes-I-can-never-afford category, Christopher Bailey’s Burberry leather ankle boots are my current faves! It’s crazy-chunky but that’s why I want it!
Til next time~
