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.

Pearls

I’ve always had a fascination with pearls because they made me think of the 1950s, like Jackie O. and company. Problem with this is that wearing a pearl necklace has the effect of making immature faces like mine look frumpy, and that I raided my grandmother’s jewelery box without much thought to dressing properly. My only solution then is to try and incorporate pearls in other forms of jewelry. Here’s some stuff I’ve found on etsy that have caught my eye:

1) Home to Nest by jewellerybyvanya

A cute modern update of the traditional pearl necklace

2) Sweet Pearls Necklace by carthyjewelry

I like how the pearls are meant to look like sweet peas in a pod. Cute!

3) Matte Gold Oval and Pearl Earrings by shlomitofir

I’ve also been trying to look for a pearl ring for some time after one in a department store counter caught my eye… Fingers crossed that I find it soon!
