Block-heel velvet ankle boots, S$350 (60% off), Saint Laurent, www.matchesfashion.com
$350 for Saint Laurent boots? Hell yes. Bonus: the block heels mean you’ll actually be able to walk in them. New year, new colour, yes?
Denim jacket, US$740 (S$984, 60% off), Vetements x Levi’s, www.net-a-porter.com
Demna Gvasalia’s signature denim jacket can now be yours – you can’t really find a cooler denim jacket than this right now.
Leather and suede clutch, US$795 (S$1057, 50% off), The Row, www.net-a-porter.com
I love pretty much anything from The Row and this golden number is no different. Hey, if it’s good enough for Suicide Squad actress Margot Robbie (she carried a black version to the Oscars in 2015), it’s good enough for me (and you).
Laser-cut suede sandals, US$695 (S$924, 50% off), Alaia, www.net-a-porter.com
Alaia’s heels are always a hot favourite with fashion editors (see Carine Roitfeld, Giovana Battaglia etc), and you really can’t go wrong with any of his signature laser cut sandals.
Cotton-blend corded lace dress, US$1,800 (S$2,392, 60% off), Valentino, www.net-a-porter.com
This one is for all the girly girls out there – it really doesn’t get much more perfect than this. I know it’s pricey but look at it this way – you’ll be able to wear it to Chinese New Year, a wedding, to meet potential parents-in-law, high tea, brunch; you get the idea. Please re-wear it as often as you please and don’t squirrel it away in your closet for special occasions only.
Embellished faux-shearling slides, S$435 (60% off), Miu Miu, www.matchesfashion.com
That said, we do not encourage going the whole girly hog – wearing them with heels would be so predictable, don’t you think? Dress it down a little with these offbeat Miu Miu slides – don’t they look divinely comfortable?
Leather shoulder bag, S$545 (30% off), Marques’Almeida, www.matchesfashion.com
Marques’Almeida is one of those fast-rising young designer labels every fashion forward industry insider has in their wardrobe – get a piece for yourself, stat. We love the extra chunky chain that adds a bit of visual interest to the bag.
Sculptured-heel satin sandals, S$715 (60% off), Prada, www.matchesfashion.com
Spotted on Prada’s Fall 2017 runway, this one-of-a-kind Prada piece is one of those numbers that deserve to be collected.
Leather ballet flats, S$315 (40% off), Lanvin, www.matchesfashion.com
Ballet flats are the easiest way to stay comfy while retaining a sense of polish and Lanvin’s ones are pretty much failproof. At S$315? Snap them up immediately.
Bow-embellished satin sandals, S$785 (40% off), Loewe, www.matchesfashion.com
This hot red satin number originally debuted at Loewe’s Fall 2017 show and they’re what I imagine Emma Stone’s character on La La Land would wear. Think of them as a modern-yet-vintage version of Dorothy’s famed ruby sandals. Bonus: they’ll be the perfect kicks (not too high, to boot) to don for next month’s Chinese New Year festivities.
