Yes, I was standing this close to Lana del Rey (!!!!)
After returning from my lovely holiday in Bali, I headed straight to Club 21's Mulberry Store Opening Party. Mulberry is a brand that has always spoken to me, with its beautiful leather concoctions and multitude of chic goods. My excitement at attending such a prestigious event, however, was not due to my love for Mulberry entirely. Instead, my bubbling anticipation which had been keeping me up at night for weeks beforehand, was because Lana del Rey was said to be attending. The stunning singer, known for her luscious mane of hair and deep, soulful voice, flew to Singapore to commemorate the opening of Mulberry's all-new store. As I am writing this post, her songs are playing on my iPhone, her voice weaving depth into the already breathtaking lyrics. Lana's songs speak so evidently to the new generation, by singing about best friends and heartbreak and, in a sense, loss. While these words may sound like a cliché, Lana's song lyrics are certainly not. If you haven't heard her beautiful music before, go listen to her songs now! Lana del Rey is currently the spokesperson for the brand, and in my eyes, is the picture-perfect idol. The music could be heard all across the party; an absolutely incredible event that featured the best of the industry. Mulberry's shining new location at the Mandarin Gallery was jam-packed with local celebrities, such as Joanne Peh, and Singapore style bloggers like X-Wen and Lailu Lu. Of course, the star of the evening, Lana del Rey completely and utterly stole the show.

My look for the evening combined my favorite trends of the moment: peplum and oxblood. The perfectly fitting skirt was oh-so-Lana which was absolutely ideal for this event. The Michael Kors purse added a metallic touch to the outfit. On the left, my sister and I are photographed with the highly publicized Mulberry Lana purse, a limited edition handbag in a shocking shade of bubblegum pink.
Many of Mulberry most-coveted bags are created in subtle, office-wear tones. Dark forest greens, oak, pear sorbet, and petrol navy are the ideal Mulberry hues. However, the impeccable store at the Mandarin Gallery showcases some flawless accessories in many ostentatious, eye-popping colors. In particular, the Del Rey bag held everyone's attention.
