Hi everybody. I'm Dana Tip, Global Shopping Editor from Reter.com and I'm here in Singapore. I'm really excited to be here, it's my first time here and from all the research I have done, Singapore is a shopper's paradise. They have around 250 miles on this small island, so that basically says everything and you can find every international brand here, Versace, Chaps, Tiffanys and everything in between but I wanna concentrate on the local brands, check out young new designers. We'll hit the massive malls, so we also gonna go to small more Bohemian areas like Little India across the street. Let's check it out and get started. So we're here in Haji Lane and one of the shops we're gonna in is called Green Posses. These bags are actually great. This bag is the larger version and I want it even more bigger, the bigger the better. Oh my god I love this. Now that is a fun play on [unknown]first effect.

but it is so cute, I might have to get it. Okay it's my first time in Singapore, why not get low?

Two bags, that's a really good score.

But you're not a concept stock and its okay and they carry clothes, men's fashion and women's fashion and some accessories.

Check out this compass, this is so cute.

Let me look.

And it works.

It's a Singaporean designer but it specializes in [unknown]

It's all based on sailing. By invite only.

It looks like you can't swim…

Hey looks like I'm moving… Could this work?

This piece is $45.

$45? I've never seen anything like it.

It's a perfect accessory.

Okay great, I love this, I'm gonna get this.

We've actually heard a lot about your store?

Well I'm gonna look through and I'm gonna see if there's anything I wanna try on. I mean I love how this is just drapery and then it's just finished. It's so comfortable.

and how much is this again?

$119. Okay I think I'm gonna get it. I'm in a little boutique called Egg3 and it's an adorable shop and they have everything from fashion accessories and home goods. This seems to be a really big trend here. They have all of these frames I've been seeing; they are made out of wood. This looks like [unknown] and it shoots like this, in glass and I have my eye on them. So we're about to go in and meet a design you all can call life in vanity. I love their jewelry. So I'm really excited to check it out. So your team obviously needs to know.

This is cool device.

You too made everything.

Really?

Yeah.

Very beautiful, that was on a bling dollar on hair.

Yeah.

Oh my, it's good to be a hard decision. I made my hardest decision in Singapore.

We're here in a shop called Hong Kong which is a local designer, she's Chinese, and so it's from Singapore. It's very kinda of kitschy mixed western-eastern style. Like this dress, the bottom is purple denim with this little patched pockets and then with the typical Chinese style dress in the neckline and then these little characters. It's around $356 Singaporean Dollars, which for a dress like this, I think is well worthy.

Well as you can see I shop my way through Singapore. It really is the shopper's paradise. And I'm even wearing my new Life in Vanity new necklace. So of course I have to have to finish off my trip with Raffles Hotel, where the Singapore swing of events to 1950s. Bye everybody.
