[Promo] Cupcakes to give away!

As a way of saying thanks to all our customers, Dressing Lane is giving out Charlotte-Grace's cupcakes voucher for anyone who spend a minimum of S$20 with us.

If anyone of you scrutinises our webpage will realise that from day one we have a Charlotte Grace's link under Share My Love. Why? Simply because the lady boss Jiaen makes the best Strawberry Short Cake ! I'm the idiotic kind who will eat the sponge cake and throw away the leftover whipped cream at birthday parties, and mind you I am guilty of doing that because it is such a waste. It's not until one day I found a slice of the their cake in my fridge and unknowing, for once in my lifetime, I licked up every fluffy bit of the cream and cake all by myself! So I declared, I only eat cream Jiaen whip. Ha!

So Dressing Lane simply wants to share what we love. We want you to wear that dress and eat that cake, voucher is valid till 20 Dec'10.

PS. Charlotte Grace does candy cakes as well, check out some of their work here and their FaceBook page here.

[Tip of the day] - Jeans Don't Lie

Everyone should own at a least a pair of skinny jeans.

I am saying this not because it's probably still the most trendy cut at the moment* (see end of post) but it's the best way to do a weight or body shape check. Especially now that loose fit maxi dresses, rompers and jumpsuits are common, negligence may kick in.

So why not use the traditional method of weighing scale or measuring tape? Let me tell you why.

 Weighing machine, I don't find them reliable. You get different readings depending on time of the day (day or night), location of the scale placed, type of scale used... To add on, weight loss sometimes only meant water loss and not fat loss.


Measuring tape?  It's too harsh a truth to handle and it's time consuming. Gotta measure waistline, hip, left thigh, right thigh....and having the numbers staring back at you...Sian.

I like approximation aka Agaration. Skinny jeans gives gentle reminder if you have grow an extra inch or two. Unless you put on some considerable amount of weight, you'll still be able to fit into the jeans. Slipping into THE jeans, you can 'agar agar' feel if it's becoming looser or tighter at certain areas. So it helps you decide if you can afford that extra scoop of ice cream or you need to give up the whip cream on your frappe.

Buy your pair of definitive jeans when you are at your tip-top shape.

The pair of skinny jean should ideally not be too low cut.

Jeans don't lie, which is why Miranda went ecstatic when she could fit into her skinny after giving birth to Brady. =0


The Boyfriend's Jeans seems to be making its wave. Check this out, Hollywood stars donning the shapeless, rolled up bf's jeans.
