Who: Valencia Lia, of Roll Up Your Sleeve
What: Vintage over-sized Valentino blazer
Where: The Oppt Shop at Heeren (but has since closed down)
How Much: SGD $32
When I use It: Countless times! I’ve used it to jazz up any outfit when I feel that I’m missing something! Over short dresses or just a plain old tee and denim cutoffs. And it never fails to keep me warm and I love, love the checkered design it has at the bottom of the blazer! Its one of my go-to pieces in the closet.
Shopping Tips: Always make friends with the owners, and shop more at vintage and thrift stores! Even though huge stores have many things, I feel that it’s these little stores where you find precious gems. Always dig deep in those racks or those bargain bins. Making friends with the owners is always good, because sometimes you get a little more of a discount, and will be updated when anything new arrives.
