Pirate Wannabe

The pirate-inspired trend has been gaining ground for a while now, way before "Pirates Of The Carribean" was screened. Several months back, celebs were already donning Alexander McQueen scarves with the skull head motif, like Ashlee Simpson here :

There are more affordable alternatives, like this one :
Skull scarf $23 from

Admittedly, it's not a trend everyone will take to.
But for those who find it good fun, just remember not to go head to toe in skulls and cross bones !

Roses & Skull tank $19.50 from
Vintage "Pirates rrrrrr cool !" Popeye tee $24.50 from

Pirate Plasters $3.99 from

Shopping Report

Location : Far East Plaza
Type : Shoe Shop

This isn't a new shop, but I had never gone in to browse before.
What caught my eye was actually a sale sign that stated some shoes were going for $18.90.
It sounded like a potential bargain too good to pass up, and so I went in to explore.

And this is what I bought within 10 minutes :

Total damage : < $50 !

The name of the shop is D & C, which stands for Design & Comfort. You can find the shop on Level 4. Although many of the other designs did not particularly appeal to me, I was impressed enough to mentally include this shop as one of my regular stops in future.

It's been a while since I've done a bag post. Enjoy !

Melie Bianco padlock satchel $64.99

This design is "inspired" by the Chloe Paddington range of bags, which feature padlocks on their bags. I think it's cute, plus, it won't break your bank.

(Top) Melie Bianco satchel $59.99 (Bottom) Small Dome tote $39.99

Now these 2 designs are "inspired" by YSL. I actually prefer them because they look much softer.

Melie Bianco hobo $39.99

The trinklets give the bag a bohemian chic. Perfect for summer!

Melie Bianco multi pocket satchel $54.99

This is a really funky bag in an interesting colour. Great with jeans or shorts for the weekend. Just try to remember which pocket you stored your stuff in ;)

Kenzie Gaucho suede tote $89.99

In a couple of months, the Autumn/Winter trend is going to hit us, and that's when darker colours are going to start coming out. This soft slouchy bag would be perfect.
