See what I did with the title there? Singapore Street = Sing Street. Get it? *rimshot* Yes, thank you, I’ll be here all week.
Anyway, here is my interpretation of this week’s SIA, inspired by the poster of “Sing Street” (sorry it wasn’t a proper “outfit” photo, I wanted to include the buildings in the background.) It’s pretty straightforward – all black with a green accent from my scarf and pops of colors from my sneakers. I also took the photo against the green of the Marina Bay to mimic the green background of the poster. I had something yellow with me as well – my umbrella – but I already got funny looks from wearing a blanket scarf in 90+ degrees, so I didn’t want to invite more funny looks by taking out my umbrella when it wasn’t raining.
(Though, to be fair, the scarf was not just something I wore for SIA; it has been a life saver on the train and in the shopping malls, where the AC is always set to “freezing” it seems. It surprises me how the Singaporeans can stand such extreme differences in temperature. And then it did rain pretty heavily right after I took these photos, so my outfit was actually complete.)
The round-up is not until Wednesday, so you still have time to send me your outfits (if you haven’t already.) And don’t forget to come back to see how others interpret this poster!

Like I said, this SIA is pretty easy for me – green, blue, brown, black. When I saw the inspiration painting (“Pond in the Woods” by Georgia O’Keeffe, just in case you forgot), I immediately thought of this coat and this scarf. The rest of the outfit came together very quickly. Then I added my ceramic brooch, because the circle shape and the pattern are reminiscent of the painting, and the swirls of colors in the painting look like glazes to me as well. Done, and done.

Since I already had the maroon jeans out and Christmas is right around the corner, I decided to play around with the red + green + white combo a bit. You can see that each piece is a more diluted or faded version of each of those colors (well, I guess you can call gray a “version” of white :P) Yeah, I’m dressing in themes again, but I’m running out of outfit ideas, and besides, if you can’t dress for Christmas, what can you dress for, right?
In other news, I still haven’t figured out how to tie this scarf without looking like I was being eaten alive…

Gods I look sallow in these photos. I do, right? It’s not just a trick of the lighting or something. I’ve always been sallow, and this shade of green from the scarf doesn’t help. The thing is, this scarf only came in dark grey, light grey, and green, so I picked the one color missing from my closet – but now I know why I don’t have that many green clothes. It’s because when I wear green, my skin turns into the Incredible Hulk’s. Too bad it doesn’t come with the muscles as well.
