Try before you buy!
Shopping at Tiffany’s is offering a fun fitting-room experience in the comfort of your own home. Sign up to the store’s Try Before You Buy Club on its website, and you can choose five pieces to get delivered to your house. You then have two days to try them on, keep what you love and return what you don’t – free of charge! It’s perfect for people who are unsure of their sizes and who want to try on a dress with their proper underwear and shoes in the comfort of their bedroom. (And a great way to get the thumbs up from hubby or a flatmate, too!) Tiffany’s can also add glamour and excitement to your fundraisers, school events, or sports club or social club happenings by adding a fashion show. Get in touch with them to make it happen.
Longchamp has just launched its Green District collection made with Econyl, a regenerated nylon yarn. Produced by Italian company Aquafil, this fibre is made from nylon waste recovered from the oceans, reprocessed and transformed into yarn. It’s available in ten models of unisex bags and in several colours, including a revisited tartan print with a bold, contemporary look. Longchamp is offering home delivery services for online orders.
Win this Vintage Style Gemstone Necklace!
To celebrate her new website launch, shoppequitobun.com, jewellery designer Sherry Libedinsky has offered us a fab competition prize to give away to our readers.
Sherry set up pequitobun jewellery in 2006 while she was a graduate student in the US. She became enamoured with all things vintage, especially the detailing in good vintage jewellery, so she started making pieces that incorporated these repurposed and found treasures. While truly unique quality pieces tend to be exorbitantly priced, by repurposing high-quality vintage and found objects – think brooches, chandelier crystals, buttons, lockets and more – Sherry has made them affordable (and eco-friendly!). Most of the designs are one-of-a-kind due to the rare nature of the objects incorporated. These are supplemented with new materials such as modern-cut gemstones, fine gold-fill and sterling silver.

Slingbacks are back!
Superga and Andrea Chong have embarked on their third partnership, exploring “essentials” and introducing two new styles: the Slingback and Ballerina. Superga’s classic canvas material is key to the collection, and with that come durability and longevity. With the word essentials taking on a new meaning in today’s COVID-19 context, they’ll be donating five percent of sales to Free Food for All, a community-led charity that provides free food to the less fortunate and empowers them to become contributing members of society.
The Superga X Drea Chong collection retails for $139.90 at superga.com.sg.
