I was surfing the net, link-jumping from one to another, when I chanced upon this webshop named Schwing Schwing. Remember this Margiela skirt from Jak&Jil?:
This is Schwing Schwing's take on it:
Schwing Schwing's version does look good and at a mere fraction of the Margiela, it's a piece that's worth buying if you are looking for the look, but may not want to pay the price. The styling of its website really leans towards the "model-off-duty-A-Wang" look, but I found some pieces which I think are more my cup of tea. For example this black dress, which reminds me of a certain Canadian brand specializing in complex geometrical tees;) :
This black vest is filled with lots of random drape and tie potential:
The most awesome thing (to me anyway) is that this website is from Singapore, so there's a tad, ok tons of, national pride here! The prices are also really good (read: reborn student on a budget here!), think Forever 21-level but with a more interesting selection. They ship internationally I think, but I'll check out Schwing Schwing in further detail when I am back in Singapore..maybe I can save on the shipping costs?
And, totally random, but I suddenly have it in my mind to get a bear tee:
Also, I'll like to announce that this is my first blog post on my new Macbook Pro:
Yesssss... happy cows at the National Mall on my desk-top :)
