An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

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

Fat-shionista #415


WHAT THE FROCK! It’s Wednesday!

I’m wearing one of my current favourite dresses! I wish I could wear it more often. Unfortunately our local public transport is a tight squeeze in the mornings and my big skirt brings out the tsktsk in other commuters. I took the taxi this morning, hence. Maybe I’ll wear it without the underskirt the next time.

This gorgeous dress is from Sohomode and I love the details so much! The big circle skirt, the piping, the velvet strips on the belt, the vintage fabric. I want another 2 more! To be honest though, it’s way more spendy than I usually am. Let’s just say that with the amount I spent on the dress (plus international shipping), I can buy 12 dresses in Singapore. I currently have my eye on THIS and THIS. They’re a little cheaper because they’re ready-to-wear and not custom. What do you think? Diana thinks I should gift them to myself. Heehee… How about throwing a few more “Yay”s in this direction?

Nonetheless, soooo beautiful and I don’t regret it.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Pink floral print custom tea dress from Sohomode

Skirt: Black Meringue petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Footwear: Nude hidden wedge pumps from FROMTHEHEEL on eBay

Accessories: Black “Princess” ring with herkimer diamond from GGORIGINAL on etsy





Thanks for the Stepford wives art direction, Shridar! Unfortunate bad lighting though. Can’t be helped. I look ashen grey. HAHAH!

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.

  1. I really like that dress! It’s something I’d wear too!

    • I can actually imagine you in the dress! I’m hoping to slowly move my wardrobe to this style. Well actually 3 styles – the 50s big circle skirts, the indie tee/jeans, the relak jack shorts.

  2. Stepford wives 😀

    If the dress(es) will make you feel good and happy, then yes.

  3. I LOVE this on you!! I bought a DD petticoat too and I have to say I do feel like I need twice as much room when I wear it;) Also, I agree with Diana and Juanita – if it makes you feel happy then buy more frocks;)

  4. A million yesses coming your way, especially for the bird design dress.

  5. Chloe, that dress is simply perfection! I love it so much! You look picture perfect, lady! 🙂

  6. Self gift is the best gift! Nyarhahaha!
    And yes, it’s a very pretty and unique dress – totally worth it!

  7. Love the print on this dress. and you MUST ge the bird dress, then I can be delightfully jealous when you wear it
