Sweater (Topshop), Maxi skirt & Belt (Zara), Boots (Jones), Glasses (from China), Scarf (the warmest thing; from Accessorize), Rings (Diva, F21 & Topshop)

All of these were captured on Harrison's camera and from the moment I saw these shots, I knew that I had to do an entire post of these shots; as narcissistic as it may be. Went vintage shopping in one of the quaint little shops tucked away from the main street in Convent Garden and I was like a little girl in a candy store! There were tons of leather, tweed and velvet blazers around, and so many pieces of colourful tops and dresses! Got my hands on a beautiful, silk ruby dress (only £20!) and I was this close to bringing it home. Unfortunately, as versatile as I know that dress would be, and as beautiful as that shade of pink was; I know that I could never go out of my house dressed in pink! ( Just look at how colourful I always dress!) Anyway, back to the narcissism I mentioned earlier; I guess if I would have to choose the best outfit I wore in 2010, this would be it. One thing I love about fashion is how fun it could be; especially when I could look like an entirely different person; with just a tweak here and there! One of my best memories in London is when the station master in the Underground told me how much he loved my (SGD$4) glasses as I was tapping my Oyster Card; Even my boyfriend thought that I looked Korean-ish with the bun; glasses and all that excess fabric. And yes, you bet I'd try to recreate all of that, in Singapore without giving myself a heat stroke!

PS/ There are plenty of gorgeous shots of London from Harrison's camera; I'd definitely do a post on that soon!

  1. Aw Ellie I love these shots, I definitely want to see more from Harrison's camera! Loving the long skirt and the candid pics of you rummaging through the rails in the vintage shop! I forget that you rarely get to layer up as much in Singapore, must have been a nice change!
