My preconception of My Sugarland, formed solely by clicking around their website, was crumbled to pigeonbites when I visited their boutique last Friday. I judge books by their covers, I admit, well maybe because my profession is to design the covers, so naturally I wasn’t too impressed with the usability of their site. I guess I went a bit S Cowell on My Sugarland and judged it too hastily, because that boutique was actually a helluva singer. I mean, treasure trove. I’ve never seen vintage and contemporary designers mixed so tastefully – from 60’s wedding dresses to digital prints by Belle Sauvage, the place screamed of the acute palate of stylist Zoe Lem, founder of the boutique. To think I dismissed such a place as another one of those overpriced vintage shops, pfft, I see now why my boyfriend dubs me retard so regularly. Retard will get her wedding dress from here, dear boyfriend.
Thank you Holly from My Sugarland for helping me with the photos!
