Hi everyone,

I hope this post finds you well and you are all staying safe, isolating yourselves indoors. I am following the news round the world for the latest updates all weekend and to be honest, have gotten quite depress after seeing the documentary on Italy and the escalating issue with Covid 19 by the team from Sky News. It was a wake up call for most of us who are lucky enough not to be caught in such intense environments, thankful for what our government is doing for us and our health system, yet our heart and prayers go out to all those who have succumbed to this horrible disease and to their grieving families.

At the back of our mind, many of us all over the world ( especially those in our 20s - 30s and may I add even the very old) believe this will not happen to us or our families. After all, we are keeping safe by regularly washing our hands and perhaps for some others, even to the extent of already practising some form of self isolation or social distancing. However, as much as I do not wish to create panic, I want to stress the importance that having such a complacent attitude " that it will not happen to me.. all will go away soon"... is NOT going to happen if we are all not practising what our governments are time and again screaming out for us to do. STAY AT HOME guys and be vigilant. Especially when you have old people and young children in your homes. Do not think this virus will not get you as you have always maintained a healthy lifestyle. Sportsman and athletes are also suffering from this. 

Enough said, I have decided since last Friday to keep myself as " locked down" as possible. To have as little social interactions except for a quick store run for the essentials as possible. Even walking the dog, I often meet my fellow dog walking friends in the neighbourhood and now it's a quick " hi / bye" as opposed to chit chats for 5 mins on what's happening. Hence, I had to do this shoot with my tripod and remote ( sorry for those obvious point and shoot captures), with my trusted and hopefully virus free pet - Rum. She just looked like a perfect accessory to the shoot and given my inspirations from Gucci and their latest campaigns posing with animals - why not use Rum who sits around all day waiting for her moment of fame!!

For this photoshoot, I would also like to take this opportunity to highlight that we can still remain fashionably conscious and sustainable during such tough economic times. One should look at swapping our clothes, support vintage and thrift shops to recycle outfits rather than buy new so here, I have explored a new clothes swap concept store in Singapore recently and the treasures I had found there by exchanging my old gently used and pre-loved outfits is so rewarding. Enough said, you can check out the videos attached below on my review of The Fashion Pulpit which I had done recently and the second fashion inspo video on how I styled these exact same outfits I had swapped from my first video.

This dress styled above in this post was another one of my swaps from The Fashion Pulpit and I decided to showcase, that with a slight change of shoes one can create very different feels to an outfit. The first look was with tasseled slides which exudes a very summer, holiday mood. Whereas the second pairing of a leather pair of booties, is a trans-seasonal look one can style from winter to Spring and yet with this gorgeous " breathable" leather boots from The Tui Collection, its handwoven rattan design allows me to trend this even in the dead of summer and chic up a plain outfit. Try pairing this pair with denim shorts.

For this limited period, The Tui Collection is now offering all my followers a 25% off this gorgeous pair of booties by using my special code of " Booties25"!! So hurry and grab yourself a great deal now!!

So in the comments below, do let me know which is your favourite pairing of shoes from this post and in the meantime, do enjoy watching these videos below and let me know which is your favourite swap outfit too.




Love,
Simone xoxo
