IMG_5959I guess the last 20 posts are probably good testament to the fact that imagination is key to maximising your wardrobe. How many times have you seen me wearing the same pair of shoes, the same jacket, the same pair of bottoms, the same top?

T and I share just 1 wardrobe. We take an equal amount of space with regards to apparel. I do have more accessories and bags but I don’t necessarily have a large winter collection since I came from the tropics. How I’ve been coping is just by layering when it gets colder.

I love switching things around and I don’t need everything to be matchy-matchy. Neither am I afraid of saying that I just don’t have the money to spend on expensive things. I’m okay with mixing and matching off-season bargains if I have to.

Will I shop differently if I have more disposable income – maybe, possibly? But my priorities right now is our nest egg and to be completely debt free before I’ll splurge on clothes, bags and shoes. You know, boring things like paying off our mortgage and servicing the car loan, also rebuilding our savings to a 6-month contingency level etc. We were wiped out when Max was stricken with cancer last year…

Anyway, the whole point of this blog is frivolity, so don’t take it too seriously and have fun with what you already own. (uhmm… and pay off your credit card debts monthly!)

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.
