My Shoe Collection #41 + My Shopping Conquest #63

Below: Love how this guy worked his plaited leather belt:-)

Topman Perforated Leather Plimsolls + Muji Thin Plaited Leather Belt

I am in a white frenzy now. I love to shop colours. So this week, colour of the moment is the purest, most versatile, most pristine WHITE:-)

Apparently, the ultra super high temperatures we are facing in SG now (a high 36 degrees and more!) forces me to want to be dress in light colours. And white is the best hue of them all to help fend off some heat.

And first up the white frenzy, accessories to compliment the clean white look. Something to match up my Mulberry White Eliot Leather Tote. And they are 'cheap' + chic!

Presenting my newly acquired Topman Perforated White Leather Plimsolls and Muji Thin Plaited Leather Belt. The plimsolls is streamlined in shape, very comfortable and the perforated leather adds texture to an otherwise plain shoe. This is great to wear for all occasions, wear it with shorts, pants, name will work for you! If you want other styles of shoes beyond the widely seen Converse style design, plimsolls are the next best thing!

Next up, Muji Thin Plaited Leather Belt that matches the shoe or even hold its own:-) This summery style belt is slender and not overpowering, presenting a light-weight balanced to what you wear. Wrapped it around shorts, jeans or khakis, for a casual summery look. And the plaited leather adds subtle texture. Forget about plain leather belts for a while, plaited leather adds just add some visual interest to your waist. One tip, men's belts are often very thin ones are usually available from the women's range. I got this from the women's belt rack. And if you are up till size 32 in waist...good news, you will fit! Besides white, there is a black and red version. I love it!
