New In – My Sales Picks

June 7, 2014

It’s the time of the year where sales are everywhere! Just when you think you gotta stick to your budget, you get lured into some good deals for some pretty damn good items. Over the years I’ve learnt to only buy the classic items that are on sale which don’t look too seasonal. Particularly for the higher end brands – they may have some of their signature styles on sale in very limited quantities, and if you are quick enough, you can probably get hold of them.

My “biggest proud purchase” during this sale season has to be this Isabel Marant Etoile Kady Washed Leather Jacket. I had this on my wishlist for so long, and I could not believe it went on sale. It all sold out within hours. My other recommendations for a good quality designer leather jacket include this iconic BLK DNM, and also this beautiful Surface to Air soft and drapey leather jacket.

Isabel-Marant-Etoile-Kady-Washed-Leather-JacketThe MSGM Floral Biker Jacket is another purchase that is now ticked off my wishlist! A bold floral biker jacket was on top of my list, and there is no other brand who does floral mixed vintage with an edge better than this uber chic contemporary Italian label. If you are after a statement jacket like this, this one or this are some other great options.


This is a lovely tweed dress with leather trim by 10 Crosby Derek Lam. I love a great LWD, particularly when the details have a modern spin to it. This dress has a loose fit that allows me to dress down or up with some accessories.

I love the top jacket so good! The tweed dress paired with that jacket and boots would be really cool I think! 🙂

You always seem to manage to pick really awesome classic pieces in sale!
The leather jacket is to die for! I have been on the hunt for the perfect leather jacket with a subtle biker jacket touch, but have not found one yet… Too bad your Isabel Marant one is completely sold out by now!

I’d love to see some outfit post of you wearing the jacket and the LWD, Reika!

I have just purchased the same Derek Lam dress on Shopbop. Would you say it runs big? I am attending a day time wedding and the main part is going to take place outside on a small river tram.. Do you think wearing this dress would be appropriate? The dress code is light color so this dress is the only thing I could find in light color at such a short notice.. Only Shopbop can deliver in three days as far as I know.. Please give me your opinion. I am going crazy.. I really could use some reassurance from a fashion expert. ^-^ Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi yes this dressy would totally appropriate for a day time wedding. Yes the fit is very relaxed so I like to wear it with a skinny belt for a more dressy appeal. And I always roll up the sleeves like how it looks on the model.
