Xiang on the basics

Posted in fashion by littleredblog on June 22, 2008

Heeeeeeeeeeey ladies!

Ah, I was just reflecting about my previous post about shoes and it struck me that Little Red Heels doesn’t sell Basics too. Think solid coloured singlets, plain white tees etc. So I thought we can gather some comments for it. Because there are dot.coms like American Apparel which sell plain tees and tops and whatnot, at slightly above average prices. Yet, there are spree-ers that actually spree with them; pay overseas postage charges when you can get them dirt cheap in Singapore – places like Bugis Village, Topshop (cheap?), MNG, Zara and the like.

I still remember before online shopping became such a rave, I shopped once at American Apparel, bought a pair of shorts (without the benefit of combined postage), paying close to SGD70 to have it flown to Singapore. Thinking back, I must be mad.

So, I was just thinking if LRH should permanently sell some basics too. What do you online shoppers look for when you come to dot.coms like us? Would you be moved to get some basics to match with the unique pieces you get here? :) Afterall, basics are must-haves, aren’t they? Because even our fashion icons need them sometimes.

On a side note (and totally out of topic), I am really frustrated with commuters who don’t wait for those who are alighting to alight FIRST before squeezing their way in (like afraid that the doors will close on them anytime) and jamming up the path – which in turn cause more friction and hence the people who are alighting can’t get off and those boarding can’t get in. Grrr. Civil-mindedness, please.
