An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

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


Fat-shionista #407

Hello! September has ended and I have no more excuses. I’ve woken up. Have to stop binge eating too. The next few weeks are going to be busy non-stop but I’ve already scheduled several posts that I have pre-written, so there’s still going to be new stuff every week.

My friend Sian Eng is really fast with the pictures and we took these photos really quickly. Enjoy!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Skulls and cupcake print tank top from Blue Magik on eBay

Accessories: Purple stretch belt (free with a DOROTHY PERKINS dress); Silver SEAMASTER watch from OMEGA; Sapphire & diamond white gold pendent (birthday present from my mum); Silver metal spikes ring from MARC BY MARC JACOBS (thanks Pearlyn); Black finish PRINCESS ring with Herkimer Diamond from GGORIGINAL on etsy

Bottom: Peach meringue petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE; Mint green chiffon full skirt from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Footwear: Black ballet flats from AMERICAYA




As you can see, my arthritic joints are not slowing down in its decay. And today is a good day, imagine when I have inflammations, they are uglier.

Hey! It’s another WTFW! And I feel like I’ve had a good break. I’ve been on leave since last Thursday and I haven’t been back at the office for 6 whole days! I’ve spent the days crocheting, cleaning, doing laundry and general maintenance (nails, hair, facial, dental etc). What have you been doing?

I love this cupcake print dress. This is another one of those dresses I made before my shopping ban. I actually have another 3 more not worn yet!

Thanks Pearlyn for the awesome gifts from New York and this beautiful ring I’m wearing! Also taking these photos!!!

Hello!!! It’s WHAT THE FROCK WEDNESDAY! I have lost count and I don’t care anymore! Ho Ho Ho!

Cabbie this morning asked if I was local (I get that a lot and I’m genuinely confused). He said I had an unusual face with good fortune and my life was blessed “above average”, BUT I should control my temper and it’s the only thing that holds me back from a truly fulfilling and progressive life. Heh…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Purple hi-lo dress with frills and elasticized waist from FOREVER21

Outerwear: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: Diamond & Sapphire ring (birthday gift from my mum); Cupcake bow ring from SewOeno on etsy; White “Carpe Diem” brooch from UntamedMenagerie on

Footwear: Black ballet flats from PRETTYFIT




Thanks Sianny for trying so hard to capture my flowy dress. Sorry my iPhone camera failed you!!

Hello it’s the 13th WHAT THE FROCK WEDNESDAY and hey 50 shades of grey. Ok maybe just 3…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Charcoal grey Julia Dress by PATRICIA VALERY on

Bottom: Black and Grey opaque leopard print tights from DOROTHY PERKINS

Accessories: Black chainmaille & cable tie necklace from theKANG; Natural weave bangle from ISLAND SHOP

Footwear: Black Mary-Janes FLATforms with toe cap studs from some shop in Far East Plaza

I’m wearing new lipstick – L’Oreal Color Riche 285 Pink Fever, to match my pink elasticized wrist supports. Too much crocheting. Arthritic hands are angry.



I think toothy grins look better on me. These half-smiles, closed-mouth affairs look more awry than wry or coy.


Thanks for being a sport Shridar Mani!


I Want: Things With My Name On Them

It’s only been 14 days since my shopping ban. I’ve so far only sold about 10 items in that time. I still have at least 50 more clothing items & lots more accessories to get rid of before I actually can reclaim my space. In the last 14 days I’ve seen so many things I actually want to get (but don’t need). It’s annoyingly difficult but every time I am tempted to click, I turn to look at the mess of clothes I already own (but don’t wear).

Anyway, for shits and giggles, I have compiled some things I like and are calling out to me, literally. These styles have my name(s) on them. HAHA!

1. K.SY+ Molly Blazer (in Purple)

C’mon. That’s totally a look I can pull off. The colour-combination is awesome!! I’d wear purple and chrome yellow together anytime. Not sure if I have enough hair for the pouf though.

2. Domino Dollhouse Chloe Party Dress

This I cheat because I already own. Ordered it about 2 months ago but I haven’t worn it yet.

3. Chloe Earrings HANDMADE by FunkyLobez on

I love big dangly earrings. The pink/purple/black combination is something I definitely can wear a lot of.

4. Chloe Floral Fabric Flower Ring with Organic Lavender by nikkimichele on

It’s pink. It’s a flower. It’s a ring! And it’s handmade!!

5. Paul’s Boutique Stripe Molly Bag

I’ve wanted a Paul’s Boutique bag for the longest time but I can’t justify the price for how little I’ll carry it. This will definitely be a fun kitschy addition though!

6. See by Chloe Pink Patent Bow Belt 

It’s Pink! It’s a bow! It’s an accessory! But… again. Not within my budget.

Today I wore clashing prints and clashing colours (well I personally think green and pink are complementary). Thanks to Wen Rui for taking these photos near our office pantry!! Poor girl got accosted by me out of the blue!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Lime green mod dress from WYATTEDWARDVINTAGE on

Accessories: Black cable-tie necklace from theKANG

Footwear: Pink & leopard print creepers/flatforms from FROMTHEHEEL

Oh yes and do you like my new glasses? They’re from New China Opticians (3 Coleman Street #B1-12A Peninsula Excelsior Shopping Centre). I am impressed that it only cost me $120! And even more impressed that they took only 30 minutes to sort me out! This is great because I am one of those rare few who are hyperopic in Singapore.

This was supposed to be yesterday’s WTFW. It’s not Wednesday, but WHAT THE FROCK anyway! It’s late because I didn’t leave the house, save for a trip to the doctor’s in my grotty shorts/tee combo. I was ill and I didn’t go to work. But here I am now and thank you to DEWI DIANA for taking these pictures! Because she’s in a fab outfit today, I took photos of her too!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Beige floral print dress from ESPRIT

Outwear: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: iPod Nano 6 with grey watch strap from iwatchz; Embroidered bird brooch from TABITHAEMMA on

Footwear: Black ballet flats from GEOX

How do you like my pseudo-librarian get-up? I imagine this is what I’d be wearing if I were a librarian. It’s too hot for a teacher though. The cardigan would make a pig out of me in our bloody humid climate. Yith! I know so… I spent enough time on both sides of the classroom.
