One of the highlights of my trip to Singapore was an afternoon on Haji Lane. For the day, I wore a simple outfit with a black and white striped Calvin Klein maxi skirt. Since my free time was limited, I scheduled to meet an old friend Estu whom I had not seen in 8 years since leaving Laos and a new friend, Sylvia, the creative mind behind 40+ Style.
First, we met at Blu Jaz Cafe for a tasty lunch and got acquainted. Sylvia filled me in on her start into the world of blogging for women over 40. She explained that she enjoys showcasing women who express their own personal styles in unique ways. On her website 40+Style, Sylvia highlights women of all ages in looks ranging from mod to eclectic.
At one point, I asked her if was any easier starting a blog years ago before there were so many; she said there was already a lot going on when she launched her website. Her advice was that anytime is the right time to start blogging, if you have something to say!
Then we were off to explore the shops! Haji Lane is a charming row of narrow shop houses nestled within the city’s Middle Eastern quarter. The street was a fashionista’s paradise with shop after shop of boutiques stocked with finely made jewelry and accessories.
Apart from the shops, one couldn’t help but be impressed by the fabulous color displays! They were so vibrant that they sparked an impromptu photo shoot.
Now, it’s time to share some of my favorites from last week’s My Refined Style Linkup! We had another fabulous linkup with 94 links and over 6,100 views! I guess I was really feeling the gray last week because each of these ladies are wearing this trendy color for Fall.
These fabulous fashionistas will also be pinned to the My Refined Style Pinterest Board…come check it out!
