Singapore Blog Awards at Shanghai Dolly

I rummaged through my closet,hoping to find something that I can miraculously transform it to imitate the fashion from the 60s. Heck,I even googled and surf blogs for ideas. But they didn't reveal much except the fashion trend in the 60s were mostly the A-go-go.

Bump pits for the hair to make it stand,and bright colourful prints with mismatch coloured stockings.

I thought I wasn't going to make it wearing the 60s outfit when I realised that my mom would probably would have some. So I went over to her room and opened her closet. A whole bunch of clothes from the 60s greeted me like how a treasure box greets the eyes of a treasure hunter. Whoopee! I finally have something to wear for Singapore Blog Awards! I have never seen her wear those before,which isn't really surprising. I decided to go for bright prints,despite some of her other clothes that would have looked more similar to the 60s fashion. I don't want to look too dull or grandma-ish y'know.

Making my way to Shanghai Dolly.

Purple stockings which NO ONE saw. Sad much,cause I thought they were rather nice and hell,I was bold enough to wear it out that day! It has this nice gradient change from light purple to dark purple. I had it a long time ago and didn't take it out until now. It's my very first time wearing it out!

I tried my best to imitate their fashion and...

Congratulations to all winners! I am so happy for them and I believe the finalists feel the same way too. Super happy to see all the familiar faces at the blog awards and there is a competition for the best outfit that represents the 60s.

Colin was so creative to wearing a hawker's 'outfit'! Everyone took one look at him and started yelling out orders for char kway tiao. He brought 4 packets of what we thought was char kuay tiao,but it's actually the Good Morning towels. How retro! "Char kuay tiao mai hum!"

Smith was quite funky with his Afro hairstyle. I love his confidence!

But no one could beat the mata (police) who stood in the corner on the right. That one is the best. Who would have thought of that?!

With my sweetest Mint mint. Congratulations for winning the music blog category! She is super passionate about music and even enrolled herself into a music class! I certainly hope that I will one day be able to attend her concert in future. She wore a pretty floral dress with big earrings and her bangs totally rocked the 60s fashion.
