Hit the beach with Elyse and I
These gorgeous tote bags from local designer Elyse and I are perfect for lounging poolside or lazing on a sun-kissed beach to evening cocktails – just pair one with wedge heels and a breezy beach cover up and you’re good to go. What’s more, they’re fully lined with waterproof material, and close with a zip to keep all your essentials safe and private. We feel like shopping for our next vacay already – when’s that next long weekend again? Priced from $99 to $110 and available online now.
Massage aching calves with OSIM’s uStiletto
Let’s just say, we have a love-hate relationship with stilettos. We love how they make our legs look, but not how they feel! You all know that end-of-the-day feeling, heel lovers: achy calves, knees and a sore back. What’s more, wearing tall stilettos too frequently can cause calf muscles to tighten and shorten over time. We’re definitely curious to try OSIM’s latest leg massager, which has been specially developed to pamper aching legs and feet, massaging calves to reduce water retention. The massager stimulates circulation, while strategically positioned reflexology rollers work to knead away aches under the foot arch, heel and toes. It’s exclusively available online at lazada.sg for $459 (usual price $599).
Try on gorgeous shoes from Arezzo
We’re pretty impressed with Brazilian brand Arezzo’s shoe collection. From sophisticated platform heels to tasteful embellishments and feminine designs with an edge, they have something to suit all tastes. What’s more, the store stocks a pretty decent size range – up to a size EU42 (that’s a UK or AUS 9.5), to be exact. Priced between $139 and $219, shop the brand now at Robinsons The Heeren, Robinsons Raffles City, Metro Paragon and Metro Centrepoint.
Check out UNIQLO’s swimmingly good collab
In its latest collaboration, UNIQLO has launched a women’s swim collection with affordable luxe French brand Princesse tam.tam. We’re lusting after this chic monochrome set – very fifties! Prices range from $14.90 for a pair of swim shorts to $49.90 for a one-piece swimsuit. The range is available online at uniqlo.com/sg and in stores now.
Get shopping at Zara’s newly expanded store
Zara has refurbished and expanded its huge store at Marina Bay Sands, and incorporated a kids section in the space, too! Now it’s easier for all the family to shop on one floor. Psst – you can now shop Zara online, too. zara.com
