An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

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

After 2 back to back crazy weekends (especially last week), I was so glad to get a break even if it was just 1 day. I think I love the adrenaline rush of work and it feels really good when it shows that you’ve put in a lot of yourself in it. We had two highly positive closing stories and I was quoted without missing a beat. It’s great to have a really dependable team you can count on to deliver the goods, run the show, keep the audiences safe and also make the 10, 000 things I want to say about the festival coherently concise. Now, my work is done and it’s bitter-sweet for me. I’ve given 5 years of myself to this festival and almost 7 years to the company. I go on a long holiday at the end of next month and I can’t wait to go back home to T in Las Vegas. We will be travelling across the USA and I can’t wait! Arizona, New York and California – here I come! Okay lah, in another 50 days…

Anyway, here’s an outfit post! I picked this dress from the racks off the Centrepoint MS. READ shop. It’s something from their R by MS. READ (trendy contemporary styles) range and retails for S$119 (use the “wastedfashion” 20% discount code and it’ll only cost you S$95.20).

It’s so generously cut that I went a size down and am wearing a UK14 for this. I don’t wear a lot of black just because fat girls are told to wear black and I refuse to abide by that “slimming”rule. But I’m not against it. As you can see, it drapes really well and is very flattering. The studs on the neckline and the front flap are nice details to an otherwise plain and simple dress. Wednesdays are our long meeting days, so I do try to dress more appropriately for work (no dress code in the creative industry though). I love that the sleeves are a comfortable fit – not too baggy and not too tight. Do you have the uncomfortable, cannot-raise arms armhole issue? I do sometimes but not here. Also, remember that I’m only 1.53m tall, so for the length of this dress is probably not going to work for someone over 1.6m unless you like minis.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Black front overlap studs dress from R by MS. READ

Accessories: Gold knotty weave metal dangling earrings from ALDO; Natural weave bangle from ISLAND SHOP

Footwear: Brown hidden wedge pumps from ZIPIA

So how does one go about slimming one’s face? I’ve still got the same round fat cheeks with the double chins.

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. Such a cute dress. It would definitely be too short for me!
