We were so stoked when we found out one of our favorite French brands, Sandro, opened in ION on Orchard! We love Sandro for its simplicity and versatility, as well as its gorgeous fabrics. Its cocktail dresses are totes amaze balls because of their interesting design and silhouette that seems to really complement women’s figure (that’s right Victoria’s Secret, not all of us are US size 0, most when actually have real curves and embrace our lady lumps!).
We decided to do what we do best, having fun on the job by trying on our favorite pieces in the store – by the way Sandro participates in this year’s GSS and there are some pretty good deals at 40-50% off! Yay!!
Carmen tried on this amazing knit sweater in canary yellow, which goes perfectly with the eyelet white skirt. And come on, how funky are those shoes? This outfit is perfect for a chilled out night at the movies. If only Singapore’s weather can cool down by 10 degrees, that would be just perfect. Sigh.
Carmen is loving this simple, yet edgy black bag. Come on, what’s not to love about it! It’s super versatile, with a hint of edgy to liven an otherwise plain outfit. It’s small without being too small, we detest bags that can only (barely) fit your lip gloss and phone.
Natasha picked this green snakeskin romper, paired with plain white leather sneakers which is just so divine. The jumpsuit can be worn with cute strappy sandals, or if you want to take it up a few notches, you can put your kickass stilettos on and throw on a structured blazer, and a simple clutch would finish the look perfectly!
How awesome does the green look with yellow? We love this look combo!
Okay, on to our second outfit of choice. Carmen picked out this delicious lace and satin top, combined with leather A-line skirt together with black leather edges with gold studs. Again, we love how Sandro’s classic items can be easily mixed and matched with other items to make a winning combo!
Natasha picked out this gorgeous satin and lace black dress with a touch of white silk, quite similar to the top Carmen picked out. The white skinny belt with gold chain and zip-up black and white strappy high heel sandals balanced out the look so it doesn’t look to dainty and plain.
This is Natasha’s absolute favorite dress in blush pink (there’s one hanging in her closet). The dress is really flattering on the body and very comfortable to wear, ideal for Singapore’s heat. Gold jewelry goes perfectly with blush pink!Ahh the silk floral dress, another great item at Sandro! It’s so flowy and light, dress it up with heels and belt to cinch the waist or dress it down with a pair of cute strappy sandals. To complete the look? Tie your hair up in a messy bun or ponytail and off you go!
Carmen’s next outfit of choice was this black and white zip-up dress, which looks grey from the distance. This dress is so fun and subtly flirty because of the way the skirt moves. Jazz it up with a wide red belt or even hot pink to really make it pop. Definitely wearable for the office, depending on how you accessorize it.
Natasha loves this red dress with cutout on the side! Who says cocktail dresses need to be on the safe side all the time? She decided to tone it down with a pair of white leather sneakers and a distressed leather jacket. A tad bit too warm to wear in Singapore, but hey, it’s perfect to wear on your next trip to Hong Kong or Japan right? Remember, there will always be an occasion to wear it, that’s what we always say. 🙂Carmen fell for this sweater and the moment she saw it on the hanger, she knew she had to try it on! Perfect to wear with white or blue denim, or leather shorts or cute skirt. Ok it practically looks good with anything and everything. Sigh.
Some of our favorite accessories in Sandro, there’s heaps more but this is going to end up being a super long blog post if we put everything in! We really like the see through small sling bag in snakeskin.
Here’s our top picks for shoes and sandals. Please don’t ask us to pick our favorite, because we want all of them!Sandro boutique can be found on level 3 of ION Orchard, conveniently right next to Alice and Olivia just in case you want to pop by afterwards.
