Because everyone is wearing sunglasses... So can you

Hey fashionistas!

Though I have not been writing much about sunglasses, but I am OBSESSED with them, but I just couldn't find good ones with nice design AND a low price. Singaporeans reading this post should know about glassesonline.sg, it's an online platform selling all kinds of eyewear from glasses to contact lenses. Read till the end for exclusive discount codes for my readers :)

What amazes me is the convenience it brings along! I mean, just imagine, you're tired of your prescription glasses but you're too lazy to head out to your optician, worried about parking spaces when you are there, traffic jams, etc. Why not be in the comforts of your own home, go online, pick a design and wait 2-3 days for your new glasses to magically appear at your doorstep? 

You must be thinking "what about the sphere power? How'd they know what sphere power I need?" (sphere power = all the parameters included in your prescription by your optician) 

Well, don't you worry about that, just input the values that are printed on your prescription form by your optician! It's just as simple as that! For example, after choosing your frame, you'll be directed to this page in which you input the respective values.



Scroll over the "i" buttons to get a clue of what values are needed and where to find them on your prescription form!



What I love most about this website is that there is ALWAYS discounted items that you can buy! I mean, look at these Rayban eyeglasses! They have the lowest price guarantee!




Do you have perfect eyesight? Well, good for you, but this website applies to you as well! I'm sure you have seen colored contact lenses before, you know, that person who has blue eyes yesterday but brown eyes today? No, they're not vampires or werewolves, they wear colored lenses! This online platform has them stocked as well! You just need to indicate +/- 0.00 for the sphere power and you're set to change your eye color everyday (if you decide to get 7 colors)! How cool is that? 

Oh yes, you can also choose to subscribe to a contact lenses subscription, in which they will automatically send you your contact lenses accordingly to the nature of your contact lenses (monthly, weekly or daily). This is convenience at its best, don't you think? 



Now for the sunglasses lovers like me. Have you ever wondered what kind of frames will suit you best? Well, this comprehensive diagram should help you quite a bit! You just need to find out your face shape!
Go on over to www.glassesonline.sg/sunglasses/ to check the designs out!

glassesonline.sg also offers free delivery in Singapore! And this is in addition to their lowest price guarantee, can you really ask for anything more? Why not head to the website now, and see for yourself? 

Now for the long awaited discount code! Thafashiongal readers get S$10 off from any order over S$50 just by entering GOBLOG10 at checkout! Like so

That is on top of their lowest price guarantee and free shipping! I mean, seriously, Rayban's polarized aviator glasses for less than $200?? Usual price goes as high as S$400! So what are you waiting for? Go on over and give it a try NOW!



That's all lovelies!

Fashion is my Shield

Hello fashionistas,

          (Yes, this is one of my emotional posts, are you ready?) I think fashion means very differently from an individual to another. Some think fashion as an output of expressing themselves, some think fashion as a chore/work, some think fashion as an exploration, whereas some think fashion as something used to impress others. There could be other meanings of fashion to other people, but for me, I think fashion as more of a shield, a cover-up, a make-up. 

          I started to be interested in fashion when I was 14 years old, when before that, I just really relied on my mom to pick out clothes/shopping or when I made some of the worst fashion choices (come on, we've all been there). It was quite a funny story how I decided to delve into fashion. All I could say was I became really self-conscious of what other people thought of me. I wanted to be the 'cool' kid everyone wants to be friends with or one of the 'popular' kids whom everyone in school knows. And this was the biggest mistake I've made in my life so far; to allow other people's thoughts to invade my life. 

Fashion Season @ Orchard 2010

          From then on, when puberty strike on me, things got a lot worse. My self-esteem went winding down even up until now as an 18-year old. It completely destroys you like a creature eating up from your insides. It restricts you on what you want to do, you feel trapped in invisible bars, and it makes you set your limitations, a control-freak over yourself. There's always a voice saying "No, you can't do that", "No, you are not capable of doing that", "No, who do you think you are?". It REALLY kills you (figuratively) and I'm NOT proud to say that. A stranger or a non-stranger could come up to me and comment on my (unspoken) flaws, and I tear up or get angry at that person. Some nights, my thoughts coupled with these comments can get so negative that I cry, just thinking of it, to sleep. I became no longer "truly happy".

          From then on, I've always been using fashion as a cover-up for my 'shortcomings', my 'imperfections'. When people say how fashion expresses yourself, I always thought "Nah, the fashion is better/prettier than me"; and so I hide behind them, like it's my shield. I think this is what shaped my love for fashion (sorry for this uninspiring post so far). But then I still think to myself; "what's the use of pretty clothes when you're not up to it?"(again, sorry for this uninspiring post so far) I think it's very important to know "how to love thyself", but I know not of it so far, or perhaps I know but don't dare to. 

          But for starters, I want less people to feel the way I feel. Everyone of us is unique in our own ways, don't even start being self-conscious of yourself. Thinking you are ugly yourself does not help a bit, but only destroys you bit by bit until you are left with nothing. I have been pushing other people away in my life who I thought is important, and I don't want this to happen to any of my readers. You only live once, live it well and know you deserve it.

Trend Report: Spring 2014 Coverage

Hello fashionistas! 

I'm really happy with the Spring 2014 collection this time round!! It's a much (much much much) better series (in my opinion) than the previous few collections ;) I've compiled some of the most significant trends across collections; geometrical patterns, a sweet/romantic touch, edgy and the new classy. 


Overarching trends: 



  • Crop tops are still trending, don't keep them just yet! 
  • Look forward to more sport-inspired wear and designs. 
  • Extend your shoe collection with even more varied designs
  • Black, white, beige, tan colors 
  • Perforated designs
