This shoe chain mainly specializes in flats. They come in all sorts of patterns and colours, able to please any picky girls whims and fancies, including mine.
They do sell an assorted range of heels too, but the quality of their shoes aren't of that good quality. They are cheap, but of substandard quality.
My pairs wore off quite quickly, I was rather disappointed. But I guess, this just gave me reason to buy more and new shoes.
If you're going for quality, forget this place, but if you're just going for the design and not comfort, you are welcome to visit this place.
I tend to go a little over-the-top when it comes to shopping for rings, and I was quite ecstatic when I first entered The Little Things She Needs, as the store stocks a wide selection of accessories.
And true to my original impression, the rings at The Little Things She Needs have never disappointed. I own a few rings from the store, and they are pretty durable, so I suppose they were worth the slight splurge.
The Little Things She Needs is inexpensive in comparison to other brands selling accessories like Diva. In fact, I once found an exact replica of a ring I'd seen previously in Diva in The Little Things She Needs, retailing for at least $2 less than that in Diva.
However, I'm not too big a fan of their shoes. I once tried 5 inch wedges at The Little Things She Needs, and it was one of the most painful shoe experiences in my life, and that's considering that I merely walked a few rounds around the store. The shoes lack in terms of comfort, and definitely aren't worth buying.
Though not exactly paradise for shoe-lovers, I'm sure fellow ring-lovers will find their place in The Little Things She Needs.
She really doesn't need anything there.
The shoes, bags and accessories there are cheaply made, common and tacky. Although I’ve browsed through the selection offered at the store at ION Orchard several times, I’ve never found anything quite worth purchasing.
Even once, when faced with the urgent need to pick up a new pair of shoes as the state of the pair I was wearing was rapidly deteriorating, I could not bring myself to purchase any shoes from that store. The accessories and bags are also lackluster, and the only thing that has ever caught my fancy in the store was a pair of tights, which was, like everything else in the store, overpriced.
The Little Things She Needs can best be described as mediocre.
Not everything she needs
I've never failed to take a walk in the shop whenever I'm at ION orchard. However, the thing is that I've also never failed to not buy a single thing from that shop even if I've spent a considerable amount of time taking a look at their items. The simple reason is that the things there simply just don't worth its price, they are all really pretty pricey. The accessories found there can also be found in many other stores, probably not the branded stores but definitely, you're able to find it at a cheaper rate. Thus, it is only suitable for people to admire their little stuffs than to really consider buying it, especially those that are cash tight.
"... not in the least, but she'll buy anyway"
Should be the rest of the official shop name.
Everything here looks and feels exactly like New Look. Are they sister brands? I have no idea, but just think New Look with no clothes and a lot more bags and shoes and you will have just imagined the little things she needs.
Trust me, there is nothing here you need. The prices are skyhigh, the items are common and the staff reek of stale attitude. No one here will bother to serve you or walk around tidying the place. Everything will be neat and in place because no one looks through anyway. It's an overlooked store in the most visited mall of all.
The save is probably their wallets which are pretty classy, but they have not invested into getting a brand name emblazoned across, which probably would catapult higher sales.
Consider a rename - New Look: shoes and bags
First thought when I entered: SO MANY SHOES. I got really excited but then got disappointed just as fast.
Not even one pair of their shoes appealed to me upon a closer look. They must've had close to a hundred (or probably more) types of shoes, from wedges to slippers, but I didn't like even one. I'm not exactly sure why.. some of them are a bit too simple, some a bit too over-designed, and most are just misses of what's in trend. They're really affordable though, so I have to give them that.
The staff on the other hand, was a bit annoying. One of them kept following me around and when I looked at her in a way which says, "thanks I don't need your help" she still kept following me around which made browsing through their shoes a bit awkward.
Did Rubi change from green to purple?
I honestly first walked into TLTSN because I thought it was a Rubi, and I was curious as to why the interior had changed from the trademark green to purple. At first glance, the two stores really do look similar, in both the products that they are selling, and the way they showcase their wares.
TLTSN also mainly sells shoes and accessories, with the main difference between the two stores being the price.
Granted, TLTSN has much more fashionable shoes, their accessories are actually really attractive (same can't be said about Rubi!), and their products actually make you want to buy them on the spot rather than putting it back down and 'thinking about it'.
However, when you look at the products itself properly, you'd see that they, too, are made in China, and having worked at a shoe store before, I took a look at the sticker at the bottom of the shoes to see what difference they'd be from where I worked once. Difference? What difference? The manufacturing stickers are exactly the same!
So here's the down low. You're paying good money for shoes in a store that looks, sells, and gives off the same vibe as another, and you're paying extra for it... why?
Shop here if you love the designs and trends that TLTSN are following, don't shop here if you're looking for shoes that will last you a long time.
Interesting but not excellent
The little things she needs is the kind of accessories store that looks like an accessories-lover's dream come true at first glance. And a huge disappointment once you start shopping. The shoe section looks interesting but what turns me off is the fact that they display everything in bulk. So basically, it seems like half of Singapore would be wearing the same shoe as you. They have racks of accessories comprising of bangles, necklaces, rings and earrings. The necklaces and chains are rather pathetic and bear close resemblance to brandless things you can find at Bugis Street for half the price. The rings are interesting though.
They have an offer where you can get one bracelet, one ring, one necklace and one earring for $20 which seems like the only reason why anyone would go to the store because otherwise, it's really not worth it.
The BEST Shoe Invention on the Planet!
The Little Things She Needs is a homegrown label which houses a variety of accessories for females. But let's face it, there is one particular product from the store that I need to rave about!
Introducing the revolutionary foldable flat from The Little Things She Needs. Now, no matter how comfortable you are with heels, there comes a breaking point where you no longer feel the balls or heels of your feet and you yearn for the feeling of levelness at your toes. You feel the burning desire to rip off your heels and dance on the ground barefoot, but for hygienic and health purposes, you choose to suck up the pain and pray for a seat somewhere, anywhere. This is where the foldable flats come in. Available in a multitude of colors, from eye-popping shades of pink and gold to basic neutrals like black and white, these foldable shoes come in a little black pouch for convenient storage. Compact in size, these shoes fit comfortably into a tote bag or even a purse for the night out. Whenever your feet are aching or tired, simply whip out these foldable shoes and replace your heels with these babies!
With each pair retailing for around 25 dollars, the price is pretty worth it considering the huge potential for long-term usage! Whenever I am going out for the night or getting my dancing shoes on, these flats are always in my bag, because you never know when you are going to need them!
A disclaimer for you potential buyers out there though: these flats are NOT for everyday wear as the soles are made of rubber and are easily susceptible to wear and tear after prolonged usage at any one time.
Similar to rubi--poor quality again
This shop is very distinct, with its main colour being a medium shade of purple, making it easily spotted from afar. The design of the label (a very nice cursive font) also adds on to the chic feel of the shop. When I saw this shop for the first time, besides the colour catching my eye, I could not help but naturally compare it to rubi. Indeed, you will see the common "2 for $25" deal for most shoes. Similar to rubi, they sell accessories too, ranging from neckalces to scarves to shades.
However, the key point that makes it distinct from rubi, other than its relatively spacious outlets, is that it allows you to make your own pair of flip flops. You can choose the base of your flip flop from a wide range of colours, and also choose the strap to match. Again, buying 2 pairs will yield you a discount. Unfortunately while the choice of colours is indeed unique, my friend claimed to have got badly cut by the straps of the flip flop.
The above point may differentate it from rubi, but quality wise is still the same--rather poor. Although this shop has a greater variety of shoes to choose from, the sole of the shoes is very thin and the shoes in general are not durable at all. But nonetheless, it is still cheap so maybe people are hence still attracted to buy a pair or two.
