I popped into this year’s Blueprint, an emporium for new local and foreign designers, at the F1 Pit Building in Singapore.
Had gone to the emporium last year and find myself a lot of new bands and designs. Also bought a lot last year.
This time, I decided to set myself a strict budget. If there’s anything that I’m undecided about, I shall leave it for the next day. I figured that if I really like something, I’ll be thinking about all day and night… and then I shld get it.
So, with a tight budget of S$200, I took my time to slowly browsed through the emporium and chatted with people about their designs – from shoes to bags to jewelry to clothes.
After 3 hours, I came away with 2 items from OwnMuse Singapore. I had bought from the brand before and really liked their simple designs. Simple yet unique. (Ahead of the trip, I had emailed the dynamic duo behind OwnMuse, Shu Juang and Johanna, and they gave me their booth location.)
I bought a silk short sleeve blouse (looks like a tee shirt that I can wear dress up our down) and a uber cool drape dress in black and orange.
Here’s what the drape dress look like on a tall lanky model:

These were past season’s clothes but I figured I could still get a lot of mileage from these. At a hefty discount for this event, I certainly didn’t go above my budget. Yay!
