Right Said Red


Ugh, I have a backlog of posts from our vacay in Canada, but just wanted to show you these photos while we were at the bus stop. I wore my red pants, finally got something bright for a change...

Shirt from +J Uniqlo, pants from Zara, oxfords from Cole, Rood & Haan, Celine luggage tote
(photo taken by Ate Lizette, Berry's nanny)

While waiting for the bus, something fell off this tree...

It was this flower, so pretty, in a shade that I would say is closer to Nantucket Red (you know red, that has been bleached by the sun and saltwater, maybe a common shade of red in a resort town like Nantucket. Incidentally, this color is a trademarked name owned by Murray's Toggery Shop in surprise surprise, Nantucket). First time I've seen anything quite like this. Like a kalachuci but bigger. I think it might be some kind of orchid because its plant was anchored to the tree...

It's huge too. The size of my palm. I wanted to bring it home and let it float on a bowl of water. Berry thought it was pretty too and she wanted to hold it. But she ended up plucking two petals out.

Shirt from Carter's, skinny jeans from Baby Gap (Thanks Tita Florence!)

And I couldn't help but notice, the red of the flower was strikingly like her plimsolls. Like they were meant to meet. Eventually, I want my red pants to fade to this shade. Maybe I should wash and wear it until it does.

Hi Ms Tin! Loving your Uniqlo top. I'm a fan of Uniqlo too. Just wondering what does the +J means. How would I look for it at the store? Currently seeing linen shirts lang kaso they're out of small sizes here in SG. Thanks!

Hi! +J is the collection by Jil Sander for Uniqlo. I think only Uniqlo at 313 Somerset carries the line. You will know it's +J because the tag says +J. The +J area is right by the dressing rooms =)

Hi Tin!

I just popped by your blog after a long absence and got trigger-happy about two of your recent entries - the Red pants and the Clemence hair (see separate kuwento).

I swear! Fire-engine red pants are my leap of faith this summer. Haha. I bought one and every time I see it in my closet, it's like saying, "don't be a wuss now."

So I let go of all the inhibitions and wear it (with white or blue, or purple tops) and syempre... with an oh-no-you-didn't attitude. Haha.

Here's to us!
