Here are the first outfit pictures of me post-haircut. As you can see the haircut is not that drastic as I decided to keep it at shoulder length. This still enables me to put it in a pony tail, but the shorter length can also be styled better as a lose hairdo. I also went slightly blonder.
My inspiration for this haircut was this picture of Heidi Klum. Thanks again to all of you who gave me advice for my new haircut!
Meeting a reader
When you start blogging you open yourself up to new opportunities and friendships. I’m now connecting with some of you on a daily basis and getting to know new women every day. And every now and then someone sends me an email that they will be coming over to Singapore. So it was, that I made an appointment to meet Elisabeth who was coming all the way from California to attend a conference in Singapore.
What I wore
I choose to wear my light brown JNBY dress. As I find this dress too short, I wore it over my very versatile cream dress which is a great basic to combine with other tunics and dresses. Have a look at how I wore both dresses before here and here.
As before, I found it hard to decide whether or not wear a necklace with the dress. It is asymmetrical at the top and already quite busy, but I really need a bit of extra color. I chose to wear the necklace in the end, as I like the extra pop of red, certainly when I’m wearing the dress without the handbag. What do you think?
As our shopping destination, I thought Elisabeth would really like Haji Lane, a fun shopping street here in Singapore with a lot of independent shops. First we had lunch in Pieda Negra, a nice mexican restaurant right at the start of Haji Lane. Luckily we got along really well, and conversation was fun and continuous. Then we were off to explore Haji Lane.
Shopping for Elisabeth
Elisabeth tried on a number of drresses and tops but unfortunately couldn’t find anything she liked and that fit. We were both very keen on this very chic dress (see below left), but unfortunately, it was not available in her size… After some coffees, we only just managed to snap a picture of the 2 of us together before it was starting to rain (hard). Since Elisabeth had not been able to find anything, we decided to head on over to one of the main shopping malls here in Singapore, which would also shelter us from the rain.
And I’m happy to say that Elisabeth found a great outfit at Zara. Unfortunately, no pictures, but hopefully she can share some with us some day. As our last stop we also visited Ecco where I bought my new shoes which were featured in this week article on mid heel shoes. She managed to buy a great looking blue pair!
