Do you shop online? When I lived in Singapore, I shopped on eBay for gently used on-trend clothes that were within my budget and also my size. Then I discovered etsy and I not only bought a lot of vintage dresses but I started ordering custom-made ones – each dress would cost between US60 – 150. After that, I went through a clothes copying phase where I bought cheap and cute fabric from textile shops in Singapore then getting local tailors to replicate my favourite dresses. These days, I have little desire to go through all that trouble – partly because I’m now a housewife and I don’t have anywhere to go, partly because I feel like my money could be put elsewhere (like *koffkoff* the mortgage payments of our home). It doesn’t hurt that I now live in Las Vegas and we’re not far from the outlet malls… heehee..

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Custom-made dress from LaMadeleine on etsy.com

Outerwear: Silver cropped cardigan from DELIA*S

Accessories: Pink frosted cookie brooch from TwinkieChan on etsy.com

Bag: Black & white patent leather dog cross body bag from EASYTRADE2099 on eBay

Footwear: Turquoise classic sneakers from SUPERGA

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 used to shop a lot online but now I’m never sure of my size so I’m learning to shop in store instead.
