Alice Dress

Yet another lovely etsy shop showcasing vintage reproduction dresses, this time more from the ’30s era. I love the simplicity of the Alice dress and how glamourous the Esme dress looks. I wish that when my wedding comes around, I can wear something similar, oho.

Yumumu + Clever Nettle

Last week I attended a fashion show in Zouk (along with what must’ve been a thousand other people) because I had a friend that was doing a small showcase there. After her showcase, the real fashion show started and my friends and I stayed behind to watch despite the fact that we hated the atmosphere (club, with loud music and dark lights). I was preparing to be unimpressed by what I saw since Singapore isn’t really know for a budding fashion centre/I don’t really like couture, but instead I discovered Yumumu, a wonderfully girly designer who definitely used vintage as an inspiration for her new line. Unfortunately I don’t have pictures of the clothes from that night, but I went to her website and instead found pieces from her East Asian Misfits line thoroughly captivating as well:

And closer to the vintage blogging world, is this lovely dress ’50s ruffled dress from Clever Nettle that caught my eye as I was reading her blog. Just as well that it’s reserved for someone else… US$82 is a bit over my budget.

Was I Mistaken?

Yesterday I logged onto Modcloth.com again as usual and saw the most darling green dress (had a bit of a ’20s vibe for me) which was a nice shade of either kelly/emerald green and cost about USD80. I was really put off by the price, but loved the design so much I went to investigate further… Imagine my surprise when I found out there was only size L and XL left! This from a dress that had been put up just mere hours before. Gosh.

Then today I logged on trying to get a glimpse of it again, but it was nowhere to be found on the Modcloth website! I wasn’t even listed as Sold Out under the New Products or Dresses section. Goodness. If I didn’t know better the dress was but a dream. Pray tell Modcloth, if you ever see this, what happened?

P.S., I’ll do my best to persuade my lazy ass to post a proper post on the fashion show I saw last week tomorrow.
