An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

IMG_5426This post features a bag I love but don’t have many occasions to carry because it’s too small for my regular wallet. And doesn’t go with most of my things. I usually carry it when nothing matches and I just want to clash all kinds of colours or prints in one outfit. BUT more importantly this outfit features my spanking brand new SUPERGA sneakers that I bought for the princely *snigger* sum of USD8.99!! ROSS did it again! I checked and they usually retail for USD50 upwards! Big pats on my back!!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black OPPOSITION PARTY band t-shirt

Bottom: Red KEITH HARING mini skirt from FOREVER21

Accessories: Pepperoni Pizza Brooch from TWINKIE CHAN on etsy.com; Set of 7 black & bronze bangles from NEW LOOK

Bag: Green polka dotted GARDEN PARTY kiss-clasp purse from DEJA VU VINTAGE

Footwear: Turquoise classic sneakers from SUPERGA

IMG_5427I just wanted to put it out there for posterity that the other day when I was putting hearts on all the lovely things I liked (but not buying) on ModCloth, my husband gave me a hug and said with a sad face “It’s okay honey, soon we’ll have money for you to buy all the things you want”. How sweet is that? Honestly, even if we had a $500,000 bank balance, I don’t think I’ll be spending $300 on shoes. It’s fun looking at nice things though…

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 agree with everything you wrote. You look fantastic without spending too much!
    (I’ve got almost the same sneakers from le coq sportif)

    • Hahahhaha! I’m all for buying nice things if I have enough money but sometimes it makes more sense to just spend the money on things you NEED and then for the WANTS, you just grab a good bargain

  2. Love all the colour and well done on the trainers. I’m a big Superga fan and my last pair cost me £40!

    • Yeah! It’s a steal! They retail for about USD50 here and when I posted it on instagram so many of my friends in Singapore asked about it. I went back to the clearance overstock store and there was none left. I think it’s a hit and miss. Hahahha I got lucky!
