I didn't choose this week's item because it's stylish, obviously...
In the unlikely event that the folk at Massimo Dutti should happen to be reading this, here's a list of items I would love an opportunity to test wear for them during my visit to Paris later this year.
10 myths and one undisputable truth with regard what to wear after you reach the grand old age of 50 years #5
Two items I purchased towards the end of last year came out of the Desigual concession in the Parkway Parade branch of Isetan. They were having a sale, of course, or I would not have been attracted to look at a label I tend to dismis as 'a tad pretentious'. As a general rule, I don't like to buy clothes where the brand's logo has been incorportated into the design, and Desigual is huge on doing that, unfortunately, hence I hadn't ever shopped there before now. Sadly, I'm not so sure I'll be shopping there again anytime soon, no matter how much they slash their prices by.
It's amazing what you can stumble across whilst looking for something completely different on Google. Two days ago, I was looking for purple jackets and found India Art Palace of Ca. Inc. Here are six garments I might be seriously tempted to buy, assuming the price was right. Unfortunately, the company only deals with retailers and not end-users though.

Layering is key in Europe and America, not only because it can be highly stylish but because it helps to keep you warm. By way of a contrast, in Singapore, we try to avoid layering our clothes.
No, it isn't that I've been invited to attend an event during fashion week. It's just that I've been promising Gorgeous Husband that I'll take him to Paris some day ever since we first met in 2006, and it's booked already. Yay!
I might not have lasted very long as an education officer with Singapore's Ministry of Education, but I did at least stick it out for long enough to suss out the dress code.
First off, let me confess the real reason why I arrived twenty minutes late for a lunch appointment with my gal pal Kathy. Five minutes of lateness really were due to having taken a wrong turn off Bukit Timah. The other fifteen were the due to my wanting to test drive an all new item of magic underwear that I only just bought.
Hi there. My name is Liz and at age 50 and after 20 years of shuffling to and fro between Singapore and the UK, I've learned a thing or two about what to wear and how to have fun wearing it.
