Paris VS New York

Everyone’s 2 favourite cities….

Passions are always worth pursuing

It’s with the heaviest of heart that I’ve to announce this – Wonderwool will be ceasing operations in 16A Haji Lane by end of November 2010. We couldn’t come to an agreement with the landlords – unreasonable terms, urghhhs – and thus, we had to leave. We could have picked any other space and move but Wonderwool‘s philosophy stays strong in believing that we want to provide customers a retail experience, not to merely earn profits. We want a shop front that we believe and feel strongly about, just like our current space that everyone raves about!

It’s an obstinate belief but I guess when it comes to passions, you don’t pick otherwise. That’s why we are sticking to our guns while we shed buckets about the big loss.

Thank you everyone for the support, it had been a great journey but we will be back. That, I promise you!

Till we find our new loft!

P.S: The Wonderwool blog will still  be up, so all you lovelies must, must, must check this site up for updates and announcements regularly!

P.P.S: We will be having a 25% discount storewide will the end of November to facilitate our moving!

Vogue + Coco Rocha

Vogue’s peek at Coco Rocha’s apartment is making me lust with envy. Her apartment is purrfect with the right elements of avant garde and down-to-earth quirkiness. I love the teapots!

Anywhere Out Of The World

We scaled the face of reason to find at least one sign
hat could reveal the true dimensions of life, lest we forget.

And maybe it’s easier to withdraw from life with all of it’s misery and wretched lies;
away from harm.

We lay by cool still waters and gazed into the sun; and like the moths
great imperfection succored to her fatal charm.
And maybe it’s me who dreams unrequited love;
the victim of fools who watch and stand in line away from harm!

In our vain pursuit  of life for one’s own end; will this crooked path ever cease to end?

What a delightful way to end the month. My trip to Jakarta is phenomenal. Well, we didn’t do anything much but my closer than close friends, lovingly took leave to travel with me on my birthday – what’s not to love? We gorged on food, get high on laughter and overdosed in nonsensical ribbings. I love them so.

2 more months before the end of 2010 – had this year been what you expected?  If not, there’s always time to make up for the lost 10 months! Hurry, grab life by the balls NOW! : )


Style Rut.

I’ve been bored of my style, I feel as if I am stuck in a rut. I keep shopping and shopping but I don’t feel like I am improving on my looks. You know what I’m talking about?

I’ve chosen some of the street looks that inspires me. Looks of real people, not the works of stylists! I like them simple, fuss-free, perfect for the weather and of course, attainable!

Chloé’s Darla Leather Tote

I first saw Chloé’s Darla Leather Tote in while holidaying in Tokyo. I was drawn at it’s structured shape and how unique it was. It was how I pictured my perfect bag to me – classic, clean, minimal luxe. Somehow, only the Darla managed to get me over my obsession with Mulberry’s Alexa – oh, and the fact that there are so many frickin’ imitations around, urghhs.

But isn’t this bag just darling? 2 months down and I’m still lusting after it.

Sheer Juxtaposition

There’s something about this picture from Me Newton that makes me go, “HMMMM….!”. I love the look, from the sheer skirt, to the exposed undergarments and tougher-than-nails boots. If this girl was walking in Singapore, I’d probably stare and gawk!
