For SGD11.90, it ain’t bad at all. Besides getting over 700 pages in a magazine that’s almost 60% advertisements, advertorials and what-nots, you can also use the September issue of Vogue US to double up as a door stop or use it as a dumbell (just roll it up). I love it because I get to see all the new F/W10 ad campaigns in their full glory, as print intended.
And after you’re inspired by Vogue and start having dreams of being a fashion designer one day, check out the Fashionary. Touted as the fashion dictionary-cum-sketchbook, this SGD39 hard cover Moleskin-like journal comes with blended figure templates, quick guides (can’t tell the difference between patterns like the nailhead check and the chalk stripe?) and promises endless hours of creative expression. Check out them at Cumulus Wheelock Place.
Elmo. As a tote. In bright orange with his cute mug right in the middle. Introducing the Envirosax Sesame Street Elmo Tote (USD9.95). Need I say more?
If we can’t beat them, join them, but do it in style at least. Retailing for only USD11 a pair (or around SGD15), get a friend coming back from the States to pick up a pair of the Marc Jacobs Flip Flops for you.
Big big fan of all things D&G? Don’t forget to check out the latest in Jap mag freebies from Spur, which comes with a printed canvas tote inspired by their F/W10 X’mas runway collection.
Expected to retail for around SGD30 or so, your best bet is to hound Kinokuniya now for availability and reservations.
