Weekend Beach Getaways: What To Bring?

With the Raya holidays coming up in two weeks, it’s perhaps time to pencil in a weekend getaway. We pick four items you will definitely need for the journey

For every beach holiday, there are four essentials – a sturdy pair of sunglasses, a bikini, a durable bag to weather the conditions of sea and sand and a comfy après-beach dress. Here are our finds from the Duriana marketplace:

Karen Walker inspired shades, RM55

We love the frames of these shades – very Karen Walker. Only difference, it retails for a mere fraction of the price of a pair of Karen Walker shades. At RM55, what’s there not to love?

Bikini Swimsuit, RM79

Floral Hawaiian prints are super trendy at the moment –  and we’re totally crushing over this little bikini with mini skirt bottom.

Textured Bucket Tote Bag, RM72

The good thing about drawstring bags is that are a lot more spacious than structured bags. Yellow is a great colour for beach getaways – vibrant and playful. This bag, in particular, is selling for RM72 and is made form quality textured PU leather with suede inner lining. Alternatively, it is also available in white and mint.

Beach Printed Dress, RM65

The Duriana Luxe Listings Guide

When it comes to all things designer, you don’t exactly have to spend top dollar every time, all the time. We compiled Duriana’s best luxury listings from a pair of pre-loved Chanel earrings to a vintage Hermes scarf! Find out what else we found…

Hermes Kelly S$16,900

Buy Now: http://taps.io/LyVg
Buy Now: http://taps.io/LyVg

This is probably Duriana’s most expensive listing ever but with reason, of course. Seller @AndreLau in Singapore is letting go of her Hermes Kelly 35 Gold Retourne bag, which comes in Togo leather and palladium hardware, for a steep S$16,900. And as her product description reads the offer is “slightly negotiable” — so don’t expect too much of a cutback!

Authentic Chanel Classic Earring, S$360

Buy Now: http://taps.io/LtaA
Buy Now: http://taps.io/LtaA

As far as luxe accessories go, a pair of Chanel earrings will glam up any outfit – even if you’re wearing a simple tank and jeans. The seller @SHOPPEScollection rates condition as 9.8/10, almost like brand new.

LV Speedy Monogram S$750

Buy Now: http://taps.io/LyVQ
Buy Now: http://taps.io/LyVQ

For those who love a classic design, this model by Louis Vuitton has most certainly stood the test of time. Seller @shopNBfab rates condition 8/10, comes with original no dust bag.

Prada Wallet S$690

Buy Now: http://taps.io/LyVw

According to Feng Shui beliefs, a red wallet energises success — and the money that comes with it. So, if you’re going to own a wallet in the colour of prosperity, it might as well be Prada.

Authentic Hermes Silk Scarf, USD165

Buy Now: http://taps.io/LyXA
Buy Now: http://taps.io/LyXA

Whether you use it as a scarf, bandana or to tie around the handle of your bag, Hermes scarves are the fanciest kind of accessory one can own. Although, its a little pricey (USD165) — just remember, it is vintage 🙂

“You can be plus size and still be fashionable” – Ratna, Owner

When we asked owner Ratna why she decided to start Adevi Clothing, she replied, “I wanted to allow women and especially young ladies who are plus sized, curvy, big sized, to be able to have choices. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do because I felt like we weren’t given enough choices to express our individuality through our fashion choices.” Here are some of our favourite picks from her shop:
