Budget Fashion Haul 

I’m am sure those who know me or follow me on Instagram (@joyceforensia) knows that I spend quite a bit of money on shoes and makeup.
However, I’m not one to spend on clothes and bags. Fashion trends changes way too quickly to justify spending big bucks on clothes and bags that are in trend. I once bought a bag close to $300 but I ended up using it less than 5 times. After that, I decided not to spend so much on bags as I tend to ‘ill-treat’ my bags anyways. Hahaha.
Back to the topic, I went shopping at Vivo recently and managed to purchased 4 items under $50.

I love buying basics at Forever 21, low prices and decent quality. Got a basic black tank, a simple V neck tee shirt in mint and a bandage skirt in dark green. And I only spent $26 dollars on these 3 items.

Basics are great as they never go out of trend and they are comfortable! To me, fashion should never be following the trend blindly. Find a style you like and is comfortable in. I love my basics paired with a statment fashion piece. It can be my bold Melissa heels or a patterned or bright colored outer wear.

I also got this pair of chic sandals with cute owl motifs from Tangs Vivo and it is only retailing at $19.90. I’m always more pro sandals than slippers. I always think that it is ok to be casual heading to town but slippers are kind of sloppy so defintely sandals for me anytime!

Fashion is a style and you define the style you want to portray. We dont have to spend loads of money just to be fashionable. Remember, comfort and confidence never goes out of fashion!



Fashion Loots from Okdgg!

Hi all!
Been awhile since I did a fashion related post!! I was approached by Okdgg.com some time back and got the chance to review some fashion loots I chosen from one of their sites, Miss Candy Kr!
IMG_3567-0.JPGOkdgg.com is a one stop Korean shopping site! You can find not only fashion pieces but also beauty products and many more!!! With many brands under them, you don’t have to look elsewhere!
IMG_3568.JPGMy items came after slightly more then two weeks after my order was placed. This is considered reasonable since shipping is free as long as you hit $100 at Miss Candy. I liked how they pack the items individually and that the shoes come packed without boxed. Saved so much space and weight if you happened to be paying for shipping. 😉
IMG_3569.JPGI was pleasantly surprised as the quality of the clothing are really good and all except one are made in Korea. As of all online shopping experience, there bound to be one piece that is a disappointment. One of the dress I got, is not what I expected mainly on the material. But luckily, it’s only 1 out of 6!
IMG_3572.JPGIMG_3570.JPGIMG_3571-0.JPGThe thing about online shopping is that the size might not fit, especially when it’s stated free size. This is often luck when you place the order to see if it will eventually fit. This denim fits but it’s a little tight at the upper arms. It’s a waste to just out it aside as I really like the material. Hence, I decided to wear it as an off shoulder jacket or around the waist to spice up my otherwise normal outfit.
IMG_3573.JPG This chiffon long sleeve scarf blouse have got to be my favorite clothing piece from my loots! It’s light weighted which is perfect for Singapore’s humid weather and I like the attached scarf design.
IMG_3574.JPG Paired it with a simple black skirt and it gives the preppy kind of look!
IMG_3575.JPG Best item from my loots have to be this pair of simple brown leather boots! And it’s only about 29 USD. It is really light which makes it very easy to walk in and very comfortable! I also love how versatile it is as it is suitable for many looks!

I enjoyed shopping on OKdgg.com and had a fuss free shopping experience on the site! Check it out yourself and shop away!!



Tick Tack Shoes by Mitju


Mitju have recently released a new range of Japanese inspired shoes! This range is called the Tick Tack Shoes and is fully customizable!


With 3 different shoe fabric bases(mainly patent, suede and leather),20 over color choices and 60 over accessories that you can “tack” to your shoes, the choice is endless! I had a hard time choosing with such a wide variety of choices.
You can say I’m literally spoilt for choices especially when I’m a shoe fanatic. I’ve over 30 pairs of shoes at home and hardly any space for them! With the new range of Tick Tack shoes, I can have different designs with just one pair of shoes! Imagine the space I will save!


Took a break from choosing and took a shot with William and Maybeline!


You will be given an order form to tick off your selections and the staff will gather the shoes and accessories for you with the form! Pretty neat huh!


Here’s happy me with my final choice!


The base shoe come with two tacks for you to clip on the accessories. It’s really easy!


I’ve picked out classic pieces for the accessories. A simple plastic ribbon in white for that casual sweet look and a black fabric ribbon with blings for a more classy and formal look.


Here’s how they looked like on the base shoe! I’ve chosen patent red for the base as I personally love red shoes and thinks that every woman should own a pair of red shoes, be it flats or heels. (I’ve red wedges, boots, sandal and flats.:P)

And it’s good to know that the base shoes are only priced at $26.90 per pair and accessories are from $6.90-$14.90! Super affordable!

One thing to note is that they are only available at ION and Plaza Singapura outlets. However, they will be available online at http://www.mitjuonline.com/ sometime in late August, so watch out for it!

Now you know where to shop for shoes! Not to mention, Mitju usual ranges of shoes are very pretty and fashionable too!



New Arm Candy: Daniel Wellington

I was never a watch person. Even if I do wear, it’s usually those cheap fashion watches from fleas. However, I realized that it’s good to actually invest in a good timepiece now that I’m a working adult. I do not want to spend too much though as I know that I will hardly wear it except to work.


I have been seeing these Daniel Wellington watches on Instagram for quite some time and I like the simple design with the colourful Nato straps. Thing is, I don’t really like the large watch face as it seems a little too casual.


And so I was shopping with my colleagues after work one day and I saw that they have the smaller watch face and with Swarovski crystals. Apparently, it’s the latest Classy collection for women.


It didn’t take me long to decide on this Classy Winchester design. The watch face is actually the same but the name varies depending on the strap. I also got the oxford strap which is not pictured. It is also a Nato strap but is red instead of pink as shown. One thing I like about DW is that the straps are interchangeable. You just have to buy one watch and many different straps and you will have many ‘different’ watches.


This is how the watch looks on my wrist besides my Pandora. I think this size fits well on my wrist. I also like that it looks classy enough for formal events.

Daniel Wellington watches are pretty affordable in my opinion. I think it’s a good choice for those who are not so into watches like me.

For those who wants to know where I bought my DW watch, I got it from City Luxe from Ion for $169 and it comes with 2 years warranty.




Fashion Haul: Iron Fist Footwear

I was walking around Bugis Junction and spotted the Iron Fist store on the 3rd level. I was immediately attracted on the footwear on display and I can’t help it but to leave the store with two pairs of shoes. Iron fist is a brand from the US with very nice punk rock styles.

I got this pair of Roaming Heart Flats and this is one of their newer designs. The flats ranges from $59.90-$89.90 if I’m not mistaken. This is $59.90.

I’m loving the golden skull charm dangling from the ribbon. The floral prints on black base is very pretty and not too loud. I also really like the leopard prints insoles.

This is the pair of heels that caught my attention to the store in the first place. This pair of Over The Rainbow heels costs $89.90. Their heels ranges from $69.90-$113.90 if I’m not wrong.

The prints on this pair of heels is to die for! I think it’s love at first sight for me! Nice quirky prints with a cute black ribbon on the front. I just had to get this!

I got their lifetime membership as I’ve purchased above $100 which entitles me to 15% off future purchases. I foresee myself going back for more shoes or even apparels as I really like the style.
