Oops I didn’t even manage to finish my post in time... found these photos sitting in my drafts folder 🌝
Okok I’m gonna continue for memory sake!
It’s true, after you get a plan on the Sip app, that’s how you find cafes around you to head to 😂
I never realised how instinctively I did that until I was chatting with the co-founders about it the other day! So funny.
Hipsters magazines, check!
Just want to say, if you aren’t a huge fan of coffees, there are also tea options on the Sip app!
Plus you can share the subscription easily with your friends or family members.
Very reasonable and worth it to get your drinks at a discounted rate through sip, since you were already gonna buy it anyway ;)
Fuel Plus+‘s iced tea was a 🙌🏻 real lifesaver in the heat man. Evening heat some more 😑
I think these were truffle fries 🍟
Convo went like this —
G: I don’t like the fries
X: Worth it though
G: It’s all hard fries and empty on the inside
X: It’s a lot for $11 leh
G: But it’s not nice????
X: Ok true
Lolol quality > quantity bro
#ootd just a stone’s throw away from the cafe 😜
It’s one of the clothes where you like so much that you wear it out as soon as you get it 😂
89% of my IG friends said they would do so, and so I’ve gained 89% of friends hahahaa don’t judge us, 11% of you 🌚
Back at Hollyhoque for some try-ons!
I don’t think it’s been very long since I last popped by but there’s sooo many new items that I haven’t tried before??
Slow down guys!
I can’t keep up hahaha
First up is this seemingly familiar piece that was actually originally launched as a midi design, and now it also comes in a shorter knee length stunner!
I own the midi length one in black, and I thought I wouldn’t want this shorter piece but...
How can I say no??
This was really gorgeous, in both lengths!
Comes in light blue, black and green - hard to go wrong with this design, suitable for work and play!
It’s so popular in stores that it’s already sold out there hahaha I had to join the BO for it. Anticipating!!
Another piece that’s no stranger to the HH collection because it’s the classic Windser dress in new colours!
I chose this because I seem to be in a nude/sand colour phase and it turned out pretty well 😍
Didn’t look naked 😂
This dropwaist detail is everything - so flattering and just the right length to wear to work or events!
I wore the black one to a wedding and felt really good about it haha paired it with a simple pair of heels and I was good to go.
Tbh the lining of my black one felt a little scratchy, but this one was completely ok! Phew!
Is this a vest or a dress?? 🤔
Well, it could be both!
There’s a little button in the front that you can safely secure both flaps together to create the look of a dress.
I think you still need to sew a button on the inside for extra security if you really wanna wear it as a regular dress tho. You’ll understand when you try it yourself!
Look at the earlier pic to see what I mean when I say I have a really short upper torso.
The belt hoops are where normal people put the sash through and cinch, but I gotta place the sash much higher for my body 😂 #truth
I really do love how lightweight the material of this vest is! Perfect for casual wear and even beach wear as Sheila showcased on her IG ⛱
The popular ottoline maxi, redesigned!
Here’s the Oakley maxi (I remember the name because I was really considering whether or not to purchase it online) in a new cut, and a different material.
I defo prefer this cut and material as compared to the ottoline one!
Flouncy tiered skirt design that just adds to the swishy factor haha
I’m kind of in between sizes so I had to tearfully put it back on the rack. S was very flattering but I also don’t think I could eat in the dress else my muffins would come out 😂
Another classic case that shows just how short my body is HAHA pls just look at the belt hoops. IT IS SO FAR DOWN 😂
I don’t even bother to use the sash and thread through the hoops anymore. I just immediately remove them and tie the sash where ever I want lol
This striped midi comes in blue and red! Red is pretty cute too but it didn’t have the size I wanted to trh
It’s a little more tapered at the waist for a slimmer silhouette and the buttons are fully functional so you gotta be a little careful about accidental exposure.
Another flattering midi from them!
I was hesitant about how the slightly capped sleeves would look on me, but thankfully they don’t really make my arms very much bigger 😅
The buttons aren’t functional so you can wear this dress with ease!
I really do like it, especially because the material isn’t the kind that will hug every curve in your body and emphasis on bits you want to hide 🙈
If you’re still worried, go for black like I did! Definitely safer!
A midi that’s newly launched online!
I didn’t realise that I had so many midi dresses with me 😅 no wonder my arm was aching as I carried the items around with me in the store.
The bodice of this dress has a similar cut to the sand pieces tried (with sleeves) previously! Buttons are all functional as well.
It definitely gives a different vibe compared to the Valerina Midi dress which has a more conservative look.
Weirdly I’m in between sizes for this piece! This is an M, and S is a little snug at the bust for me so I didn’t go home with this in the end!
And last but not least, one of my favourites!
It kinda looks like something I already have but it’s different okay!! Hahaha *defensive*
It kinda looks similar to the Windser Peplum Midi but it’s in a shorter length and has frills along the dropwaist.
This dress comes in Malt, Emerald, Navy and this Sky blue!
@rebekatee bagged the Emerald one home the day before I went to try and I can really see why. Too cute and it’s a fuss free piece!
