Guide to Blueprint Emporium (Open to Public)

Fashion. Fashion. Fashion. It is all that is buzzing in Singapore this week! There’s simply too much to catch up on with all the fashion events going on. We’re attending the Blueprint Trade show and Emporium and it is more than enough to keep us excited.

Mark your calendar for the Blueprint Emporium event happening on the 18th -19th of May 2013. This massive shopping event will include regional and international brands that specially brought their exclusive and sometimes limited collections down to Blueprint Emporium.

First of all, here are the keywords: OPEN TO PUBLIC!

As we understand how this excitement may send you off flying around the Pit building for these two days retail therapy experience, here’s the ultimate guide to Blueprint Emporium.

STEP 1. Do Your Research, Spot your Favourites 

We’ve done ours and here is our top three picks:

#1: ASAMA

45373_382364508537542_1623371490_n 544080_382364498537543_499653739_n

We can’t help but notice ASAMA’s wonderfully quirky scarves and handmade illustrations that are able to dress simple outfits with just the right amount of colour.

We love this Thailand brand as the scarves are made from 100% silk and are the perfect quirk mates for the Irregular Choice! We will wear them together for a complete head turning look.

#2 WSDMS

WSDM

WSDMS2 WSDMS

Singapore menswear label, WSDMS, which stands for both WISDOMS and ‘We seek for discernment’, has successfully established strong statements through the use of colorful suit & shorts.

A rather fun spin to the traditional menswear, we think these will add some fun and funk for the men.

#3 Head of State millinery

When Chee Sau Fen, a self taught local designer decided to create an innovative design for the indigenous craft practice, Head of State millinery was born. Chee’s radical hat designs, which are made from sustainable material, are crafted with unusual techniques giving silhouettes, shape and form.

A perfect choice for those who dare to stand out from the crowd, we challenge you to put a smile on someone’s face by wearing these unique hat pieces.

Pick Of The Week #38: WEARTO’s Huat Campaign!

CNY2013

WEARTO.COM is starting the Lunar New Year with a four-day Huat Campaign! From the 1st-4th February, we will be slashing prices up to 50% off for selected Chinese New Year must-haves! For the first sale of the year, local shipping will be entirely free.

This time I’ve picked some of my favourite Irregular Choice shoes in red, dainty 72Smalldive accessories, rain-proof Those Days pumps and stylish Saturday apparels just in time for Chinese New Year. I have countless shoes in every shade of red possible. This is because my wardrobe consists mainly of black, blue, grey, white and denim. This year, I have set my eyes on a few pairs of Irregular Choice shoes in red, just in time for Chinese New Year.

Many have asked me why my obsession with Irregular Choice shoes. My answer? Irregular Choice makes quirky, accessible.

It works with my little black dress, my favourite boyfriend jeans and my tailored suits. With that in mind, we’ve put together simple styling tips for you this Chinese New Year. How to wear your jeans for Chinese New Year! To check out how you can style your Little Black Dress Look, click here.

WEARTO’s Pick Of The Week #35: Irregular Choice with the Little Black Dress

Many of our ladies often ask us how should Irregular Choice be worn. With such fabulously quirky statement pieces, the best way to wear Irregular Choice shoes is to go simple and let it be what it’s supposed to be, a statement piece. Irregular Choice works best with a dull wardrobe of blacks, whites and greys. Less is more so let the shoes shine and speak for themselves.

Check out how Jameela Jamil works her pair of Irregular Choice. You only need a few good pair of shoes to stand out.

This week Rockhopper takes the limelight for being funky and comfy. Especially splendid for Chinese New Year visiting, these penguin-themed flats will be great conversation starters. By pairing it with a little black dress, it adds some zing to your entire outfit and makes it suitable for your workplace too.

We don’t like being tied down by the typical office wear so this is our way of expressing ourselves. Eye-catching but still keeping to the rules (:

Other easy to wear and match shoes are Strife, Fresh Cut Grass and Pink Primrose as well!

Here’s where you can get them:
