BUY­ING GUIDE

Female (Singapore) - - BUYING GUIDE -

1. CHUBBY LOVE

The Chubby Cube Cross­body (avail­able in Aqua­ma­rine, Light Gold, Chalk, Chalk Naplak, Light Rose) from Anya Hind­march is ideal for every­day use. Spa­cious enough to tote about all your es­sen­tials, the bag has de­tails such as the over­sized pip­ing and zip­per that make it any­thing but norm­core. Avail­able at all Anya Hind­march shops. www.anyahind­march.com

2. GOOD LUCK CHARM

If di­a­monds are a girl’s best friend, pearls are their el­e­gant cousin. Miki­moto’s Lucky Mo­tif Col­lec­tion fea­tures lucky charms (a four-leaf clover, but­ter­fly, key, and horse­shoe) to­gether with Ja­panese Akoya cul­tured pearls (3-3.25mm) and di­a­monds to el­e­vate an every­day trin­ket into an el­e­gant keep­sake. Avail­able as a pen­dant neck­lace (in 18K white, yel­low, pink and green gold) and bracelets in three dif­fer­ent de­signs, it’s a mean­ing­ful way to keep luck and hap­pi­ness around you daily. Avail­able at all Miki­moto re­tail­ers.

3. SHOES FOR A MUSE

Pho­tos of the iconic model Jean Shrimp­ton (shot by David Bai­ley) are the in­spi­ra­tion be­hind Manolo Blah­nik’s lat­est col­lec­tion. Re­call­ing the swing­ing vibe of the ’60s, the Pa­trokova bal­le­rina flat is per­fect for daily wear, while the Scota, a time­less Mary Jane style with patent leather and kit­ten heels, would com­plete any miniskirt look. But per­haps the most em­blem­atic of the era has to be the Wakia: on­trend block-heel boots in black with a white tip – now that’s a stylish pair of shoes that we would love to rock. Avail­able at Level 2 Takashimaya D.S.

4. TO THE RES­CUE

It’s al­ways a good idea to pack smart for your beach hol­i­day. With lim­ited space in your van­ity case, mul­ti­task­ing prod­ucts are a pri­or­ity. Bio-Oil works for both the body and hair as a hy­dra­tor and frizz tamer, plus it also soothes sun-ex­posed skin, and can be used when shav­ing (to avoid the rough ra­zor burn). The light­weight for­mu­la­tion (with vi­ta­mins A and E, as well as nat­u­ral plant oils) also means it’s rapidly ab­sorbed, but not with­out leav­ing be­hind its nour­ish­ing good­ness. Avail­able in three sizes (60ml, 125ml, 200ml) at all lead­ing phar­ma­cies, se­lected de­part­ment stores and hos­pi­tals. www.bio-oil.com
