New local boutique in town: Sans & Sans

Honestly, I've been trying to find a label that's affordable, stylish, timeless, yet not overly common. Shopping at Zara has been such a routine that I can actually spot outfits from the brand on the street. Ugh, overly common. Online shopping is a great convenience, but I've gotten my fair share of shocks, meaning the quality isn't worth the price you paid for, the outfit doesn't look good on you (why does everything look good on models??) or worse still, your product gets lost in the mail.

When I was introduced to Sans & Sans, who boasts pieces inspired from oriental heritage, I wondered if they would be more traditional or modern, and with Chinese tiles, blossom prints and Shikumen shop windows, I was expecting the former.


To my surprise, Sans & Sans balances both, and as a plus, are very affordably priced! I checked out their Marina Square store twice, because the polite sales staff informed me that new arrivals are in about twice a week. The range includes olive tailored pants, navy blue oversized shirts, bold prints on bright dresses, and also provide alteration services at additional costs. What I love the most about their clothes is that there's something unique about their design. For example, a white top with a black collar seems ordinary, but there's an added twist of sewn flowers all over the collar. 

And their accessories! Those really blew me away. The level of detail, the versatility of designs, are all statement pieces waiting to be paired up with your choice of outfit. It was fun trying different outfits and matching them together!

I really loved this top which seems plain but actually has a retro like circle fabric which you can't really admire from the picture. A twist to the usual classy piece. And those shorts!! So versatile and can take you from day to night easily.

Korean style top and baroque printed black skirt for work! It fit perfectly :) Looking chic for work is always a mega plus for me.


Really wanted to get this dress as well but it was too big for me at the arms and also that slit in the middle? Opens up all the way. Probably have to get it sewn together to prevent any unwanted 'exposures' hahah.

Pieces at Sans & Sans will set you back from $59 - $139 easily for a top or a dress, but the quality, workmanship, style and compliments you'll get after wearing them are worth it :p

PS: This looks very pretty but when I signed my credit card receipt on the wood backing, my signature wasn't smooth. Example of pretty but not practical lol.
