Move over, dad sneakers!
In recent months, there's been a rise in 'off-beat' and eccentric footwear. These are styles that we never thought we'd love. Some have even been downright disdained about a decade ago. For example, wearing Uggs and Dad Sneakers were once considered an embarrassing fashion crime but it's now seen as cute and trendy. Ahh, how times have changed! And in 2019, another odd throwback style is taking centre stage. Unexpectedly, sporty sandals are now cool. Who would have thought? Right now, your feelings may still be mixed but these cute pieces are bound to change your mind.

Wander & wonder
No prizes guessing where we wandered off to for the second stop of our annual tea party after Singapore: right “next door”, Malaysia! With the buzz of last October’s gathering with members of our community still fresh in our minds, this April’s session saw us getting acquainted with new faces on top of meeting a handful of our most supportive Clozetters.
But that’s not all, of course. There were delicately wrapped mini floral bouquets, beauty pouch customisation with stick-on patches, temporary tattoos, and finally, a goodie bag to bring home and remember the party by. And for the lucky ones: three guests got to walk away with a Baby-G by Casio watch each, while one winner scored a one-night staycation for two courtesy of Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur.
