An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

Fatshion, Food & Frivolities – Life in Las Vegas & Singapore

Fat-shionista #388


Not sure what the theme is but I piled on the arm swag this morning and I’m so happy! I love accessories! They are so fun! I’m glad there are lots of trendy and quirky things you can buy in Asia for cheap!

In my former job, my first Principal (or was it the VP?) told us that we shouldn’t distract the students by wearing too many accessories – I was just wearing a pair of dangling earrings, nothing more. I was quite afraid of getting into trouble and I didn’t dare accessorize (only wearing a watch or a small fine chain with a teeny-tiny pendant). I didn’t really wear bracelets or bangles (although I really love them) because I was told by a senior teacher that they make too much noise. Also students will stare at your hands when you write on the whiteboard, instead of paying attention to you. I don’t know if that’s true, what do you think?

Maybe I’m making up for it now. Today I’ve gone apeshit with the accessories! HAHA!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black tank top with red sequin hearts from NEW LOOK

Accessories: Ducks Charm Bracelet from WOODWOOD; Rock Love Music ring from INDIESIN; Stack of 7 black/bronze/silver bangles from NEW LOOK; Red & Bronze “Vivienne Westwood” bracelet from eBay; Black faux leather cuff bracelet from YOYOSTORE2010 on eBay; Black plastic bangle with ridges from THEBLACKGROUND: Black & gold skulls, lightning bolt and hearts earrings from PINKZOMBIES on; Copper chunky ring from ISLAND SHOP; Red round plastic ring from thestreetsofbangkok

Bottom: Navy stretch jeans from RIVER ISLAND

Footwear: Black ballet flats from GEOX

Thanks Tamares for taking these photos!

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.
