GSS 2013: DFS Galleria Scottswalk’s Clearance Sale

Let the madness begin! The annual Great Singapore Sale kickstarted last Friday, 31st May 2013 and gosh, I’m already overwhelmed by the discount frenzy in Orchard Road. I started my GSS 2013 shopping spree at the newly renovated DFS Galleria Scottswalk (25 Scotts Road Singapore 228220, Tel: +65 6229 8100), located next to Royal Plaza on Scotts. Contrary to shoppers’ myth, DFS Galleria Scottswalk is not only available for tourists but locals as well. Yes, you hear me. You don’t need to travel to shop for travel exclusive or regular items at this massive shopping haven. Good news, DFS Galleria Scottswalk’s Annual Spring Clearance event has started until the end of June. Most of the brands such as Burberry, Coach, Bottega Veneta, Gucci, Ralph Lauren and Ferragamo are having at least 30% off selected merchandise. I was obsessed with the classic trench coats from Burberry as well as the Coach Duffle Bags in bright Spring colours. What are you waiting for? It’s time to shop up a storm.

Psst… if you prefer a “peaceful” shopping experience, come after 4:30pm.

Fash-Review: Salvatore Ferragamo’s Signorina Fragrance

Spring is finally here. I like to start the new season with a fresh, floral scent with a hint of fruitiness. I found that scent in Salvatore Ferragamo‘s new fragrance, Signorina. Inspired by Ferragamo‘s special relationship with the chic, feminine young women, Signorina is a “sophisticated, subtly cheeky and fresh scent signature” that reminds me of that feisty, young Mademoiselle who paints the city in pink, like she wants it. Created by perfumers Sophie Labbe and Juliette Karagueuzoglou, Signorina is bursting with currant spiced by fresh pink pepper, followed by girly heart notes of jasmine, peony and rose. Eventually, the fragrance dries out into a creamy scent of Patchouli, Pannacotta and musk to bring out the Italian elegance.

Fash-Review: This has to be the perfect Spring scent for the young ladies. I’m a big fan of floral and citrus top and heart notes but I am not crazy over the woody dry notes which lingers on like dessert. I wish the floral notes lasted a little longer.  I’ve to say that Signorina has one of the prettiest packaging in the market, packed in a squared jewel box topped with the iconic Vara bow and pink gold bubble shiny cover. To be honest, the packaging is good enough for me to buy this! Ironically, Signorina does reminds me a little of Christian Dior‘s Miss Dior Cherie – from the scent down to the packaging. Coincidence? I don’t know. Ultimately, Signorina targets the young, playful lady who lives life to the fullest without losing touch of her elegance.

Launched in March 2012, Signorina is available in 30ml Eau de Parfum (SGD95), 50ml Eau de Parfum (SGD138), 100ml Eau de Parfum (SGD185), 200ml Body Lotion (SGD76) and 200ml Bath and Shower Gel (SGD67).

The beautiful Bianca Balti embodies the stylish, young Italian Signorina.

This is the box – it actually makes a lovely gift!

What did I tell you? Isn’t the Signorina packaging so lovely?

Happy 2012, Fash-Readers!

It’s already 2012?! I guess as you grow older (and hopefully, wiser), time seems to move too quickly. Firstly, HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my readers, lovers and even my haters (I love you too!). Without you guys, Fash-Eccentric is just me talking to me, myself and I for the past five years. 2012 marks the sixth year of this blog’s existence – amazing right? And boy, it has been a fun, roller-coaster ride and I’m still enjoying this blogging experience. This blog post is just a reflection of the past year. I guess it is a reminder that the year didn’t just fleet by in a *poof*. Thank you once again for reading my blog – my 2012 resolution is to blog more, blog better. Scroll all the way down for the Fash-Giveaway – I wanted to kick start the year by making my readers happy :)

In case you forgot, I tied the knot (for the third time to the same man) in New Zealand – hence, I disappeared from blogging.

Salvatore Ferragamo Spring Summer 2011 Show in Singapore

Salvatore Ferragamo is the first high-fashion event of the year for me. I feel like I’ve been out of the blogging scene (even though it has only been 2.5 months!). It was awesome bumping into people I know, asking me “Where have you been?” hur hur hur. Here’s a quick look of yesterday’s event and I’ll report on the Spring Summer 2011 collection in the next post (well, it’s not something I could just bang out in 5min right? Plus, I’m late for an event… tata!)

Park Shin Hye in Singapore: Salvatore Ferragamo Spring Summer 2011 Show

It’s such a wonderful surprise to see Korean actress Park Shin Hye at last night’s Salvatore Ferragamo Spring Summer 2011 show. I didn’t even know she was coming to Singapore! In case you’re wondering who she is, she is one of the hottest Korean actress and the face of Etude House. Plus,  it didn’t seem to long ago when I blogged about her as my Fash-Icon. The young actress graced the high-profile event at Paragon (with several fans camping outside the store, screaming “Saranghae!”). Here are some photos of Park Shin Hye from the event:
