Plastic shoes don't sprout mould immediately after you get caught out in a rainstorm in them, and you will get caught out in a rainstorm at some point during your visit to Singapore, you just will, there's nothing anyone can do to prevent this from happening. These pink jelly sandals from guess could really work in this climate then; providing I can get used to having something in between my toes, they'll be ideal for visits to the wet market. (For those who don't know already, Singapore's wet markets are referred to as 'wet' because, owing to the tradesmen and women spraying a fair bit of water around in order to keep their stalls nice and clean they tend to be... duh... fairly wet places to have to walk around.)
I'm not so sure I'd be comfortable wearing them in the UK though, or certainly not at this time of year. What the folk at Polyvore are referring to as a Spring Trend, seems to me unlikely to really catch until the European summer, and even then I can't see the outfit below working on more than a very few days of the British year. (I'd be happy to wear this or something very similar to it around the beach in Thailand, Bali or the Philappines; I honestly cannot remember the last time I felt warm enough to wear so few clothes in the UK.)
Out of all of the jellies I've looked at whilst researching this post, I reckon I'd be most likely to buy the pink ones from Guess if only they were a little bit cheaper. Call me tight if you will and S$80 or GBP40 seems like a lot of money to have to shell out for plastic shoes. At the time of writing, the black ones from the second outfit cost GBP25 (or around S$50) at www.lipsy.co.uk, affordable but not what I would call an out and out bargain. What do other people think?
I've included some even more expensive jellies in the collection shown below. Check out the Sophia Webster Jourden Lace-Up Sandal costing a whopping S$1,200, for example. Meanwhile, my absolute favourites are the Melissa Solar Maleficient, which cost S$140 and are available in four different colours. Unlike the pink ones, I am unable to think of anything I already have in my wardrobe that I could wear them with though.
