I'm constantly amazed how few Singaporeans carry a pair of sunglasses on their lunch break! The weather is no less blazingly bright than Sydney or LA, but it appears only the expatriates seem to be wiping out their sunnies whilst sitting al fresco. The large majority seek shelter under a tree, squint, wince or holding their newspaper/palm up to shade their face. Not glam or productive at all...
Given the prohibitive mark-up amongst its Singapore stockists, it's time to pop into shops for a test-run before buying on Shopbop *pencilling this in for the weekend*
