We can’t do without accessories. Wallets, handbags and shoes you name it. They are our pick, and the more the merrier. The questions is, where do you find accessories in Singapore that are a little different? Not just what you see in the malls. And certainly not from the international branded stores… Private boutiques and fairs in Singapore are great for unique pieces. With limited stock, you are bound to never find someone else with the same item.
