I usually refrain myself from buying too much whenever I visit Singapore, but I went on a splurge this time round. I don't exactly know what has gotten into me that made me bring back 7 pairs of socks from Singapore. The pair of shoes which I over-wear are the faux brown leather ones I brought back from my Bangkok trip last November, and being leather shoes they are versatile with most looks and I love matching them with nice socks as well. That said, I only owned 3 pairs of socks previously which were from H&M but they don't have any designs around the hems so once worn with those shoes, the designs were unseen until I remove my shoes. (Which hardly ever happen when I'm out) And that beats the purpose of having cute socks if you can't see their designs. :(
Anyways, I just got back from Singapore last night after 7 hours of bus ride (Thanks to being stuck at customs for an hour and the terrible jam. I don't get why there're so many tourist around this time of the year :/) so instead of sorting and editing the pictures of my Singapore trip, I decided to show you some of what I've bought. I did shopping mainly for socks, skin care, socks and some clothes so with socks being the highlight of my purchase I'll be showing them first, heehee~
A complimentary shot of my face can't be missed. I felt like my skin got better in Singapore. Maybe it's the food? Environment? Or maybe it's because I had so much fun there? ;) More on my Singapore trip when I got the pictures sorted out~
Ta-daa! 7 pairs of socks in total. Well, to be exact, one of them (the panda one) was from Kelly when I met her in Singapore. As you can see, some of them were fun and loud in prints and design whereas some were more girly and feminine. I got different styles of socks to match with different outfit styles as they can be a highlight or complete an outfit. You don't have to always match socks with leather shoes or closed toe shoes though, sometimes it's fun to match them with heels instead! :D
Aside from the panda one, I got the 3 from the left at Haji Lane for $13 and the other 3 at JRunway for $15.
When I saw the socks, I wondered, 'Kelly, did you read my mind?' How did she know that I was hunting for these cute socks and got me a pair too? :D It's really cute and I love how it has some part translucent and a panda face too. The zebra one was really cool as you can either wear it as zebra print itself or flip it down to reveal the zebra face! The fries were just too cute! I was instantly sold when I saw them. The material were thick and nice too but not too warm so you can wear it any day :D
Moving on to the girlier side, I got a vintage maroon coloured one with some lace. I've always love these lace socks and has been looking for them ever since I out grown my lace socks which I had when I was very much younger. Among shops I've looked at in Malaysia I haven't seen any for adult feet size so seeing these in Singapore made me happy. The other two polka dots one are similar except for the colour and I had a hard time choosing which to get and ultimately took both of them to the counter. The last one is also a translucent pair and they had leopard prints on them. It's really cool too and I have already ideas on what to match them with. In fact, I wore them the very next day itself! XD
I really love these socks so much and for once I'm happy with the money I spent on little items like these. Usually when I buy something, I consider whether the fabric or design is worth to purchase so even if I like them but they're overpriced in my opinion (Example shorts with so little fabric yet costing the amount of 2 tops) I'd just put them back to the racks. However, since I know I will be wearing these socks for a long time I'm happy to get them into my closet. XD Do you have any weird obsession on items which you'd buy them for higher price too?
