You'd think collar DIYs would be the easiest thing to do (Take shirt. Cut collar off. Button collar on self. Done.) but for some reason I still haven't gotten around to it. You see, I LIKE the shirts that I own, so the whole not-wanting-to-destroy-my-shirt thing is a big deterrent. And if I'm going to buy a totally new shirt to desecrate, I might as well just buy a damn collar. Which is where Eleven Objects comes in, featuring a variety of designs in engaging colours, or else suitably embellished so as to make them better than your average DIY.

Red Carpet Fashion Awards says red heels with white dresses is the latest celebrity trend. I say these McQueens shouldn't fall so much in the realm of "trend" as classic must-haves.
It is believed by many males that the wedge isn't as sexy as the stiletto heel. I believe that all it takes is the right wedge -- the perfect angle of a Giuseppe platform wedge to please the eye, or the painfully curvaceous inward arch on these beautiful babies.
Get them at SSense.

You all know about my obsession with bags. I’m forever on the prowl for a cute bag that isn’t heavy as I lean towards larger bags with all kinds of stuff to throw in. So when Doorstep Luxury approached me about test driving their new line that just arrived called Leghlia, I leapt at the chance. Leghlia is an Italian brand that does neoprene bags. Yes, that material that scuba suits are made out of. I got my hands on the lovely B-Bag, obviously paying homage to the Birkin, over the weekend and it was awesome. The bag looks great and while lightweight, is sturdy enough that the shape doesn’t get all wonky. After taking the bag out for a spin and receiving some lovely compliments to go along with it, I’m sold. It’s much better than my Tata Baby, is waterproof (I’m looking at you paper Birkin, even though your tag says you’re washable, I’m doubtful) AND comes in all sorts of fun colours (pink, purple, taupe, turquoise, white, black, yellow, and blue.) Best part is, if you order it on Doorstep Luxury, you don’t have to pay for shipping as all orders over S$300 have free international shipping AND the delivery comes in a pretty gift box complete with bow. Like last time, I received my shipment within three days of ordering. Awesome right?
When I was in high school, my teenage sweetheart and I used one of those photo-booth machines that combo your features and spits out what your potential offspring would look like. HOLY CRAP it's a good thing I didn't marry and breed with that boy, because those would've been some monstrously deformed kiddos we would've had.
Of course, I'm not nearly as cute as my foxylicious dog Foxy, so perhaps if she were to become a big dog whore she'd give birth to all sorts of cutie-patooties... or so you'd think. On a walk a few weeks ago I encountered a chihua-gi -- imagine an all-white chihuahua head mounted on a corgi body. Quel scary! Which got me googling all sorts of cross-breeds. They ranged from the cute, like the corgi x husky above, to the really weird, like a corgi x pomeranian.

Pictures from the collabo jewellery items from Man Repeller and Dannijo, following the brand's partnership with Fashion Toast's Rumi Neely last year. The silver triple-bow necklace is definitely on my wishlist, along with the giant collar/breastplate thingie that's part-armour, part-decoration, all-awesome.
Check out the new Tod’s Signature Collection, a range of bags that celebrates the famous gommino pattern of the house. We've waxed lyrical about the D Bag and now with this new launch, I'm thinking it's time to add a Tod's bag to my collection. Which should I choose?
