Pleated With Culture

Wednesday, January 18, 2017


Contrary to my typical habits, I'm not a shopper when I travel. I much more prefer the reward of photos and memories as souvenirs. Though during my recent trip to Singapore, the cozy, independently-owned boutiques of the famous Haji Lane had a lure that I could not resist.

To date this dramatically pleated top is one of my favorite clothing purchases from a vacation. The design speaks to everything that Haji Lane is -- one of a kind. The narrow pedestrian street is lined with boutiques you won't find anywhere else, each with its own personality. I personally love the ability to pair this top with the simplest outfit without really being simple at all. Shopping on Haji is as much a cultural experience as most other local tourist sites, and it's at the top of my list for a longer visit on my next trip to Singapore.
