An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

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

These couple of weeks have been really tiring. Other than work, my family and I have been taking turns with the care of my maternal grandmother, as well as the household chores since our last maid went back to the Philippines and we all have full-time jobs. I’m mostly in charge of bathing my grandmother, bathing the dog, doing the laundry, washing the dishes and cooking. Hence, you know… the lack of updates.

On the upside, I’m counting down to my big holiday!! Another 2 1/2 weeks before I fly! Can’t wait to get back to Vegas to see T and take Max out for a walk again! And during the weekend of September 7, we will be in New York! *woot*

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Rainbow print skater dress from ASOS PETITE

Accessories: Green & silver multi-strand necklace from ACCESSORIZE

Bottom: Peach Meringue Petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Footwear: Pink/Leopard print flatforms/creepers from FromTheHeel on eBay

Today’s photos are by my wonderful colleague Jovin using my 2nd hand iPhone 4 and of course, as usual, taken just outside our office. HAHA! I’m not even apologetic about how basic and easily this is done. How do other bloggers do it? Going to a different location each time and lugging a huge-ass camera everyday.

Hah! I told you this was going to be one of my favourite dresses! I love how it fits and feels. Also, statement necklaces do particularly well paired with this dress. There’s something to be said about these crazy statement necklaces that are so perfect for lazy people who can’t be bothered to accessorize. I love love love them!

How do you store your accessories? I have several jewellery trees and little trays both in Singapore and Las Vegas. Heh heh… And I recently just got rid of 2 boxes of those I haven’t been wearing for a while. Too many! Too many I say!

Anyway, thanks to Sianny for the pictures!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Grey Midi Dress with long sleeves from ASOS

Accessories: Natural bamboo weave bangle from Island Shop; Embellished Mirror Statement necklace from ACCESSORIZE (I can’t believe it was £9.50! I just bought it 2 weeks ago in Singapore for more than S$50!)

Footwear: Mustard coloured synthetic leather Mary Janes from ZIPIA

Here’s another quickie! What am I saying? They are all quickies and I never spend more than 10 minutes from taking pictures to writing up a post. How do bloggers spend all their time doing this? I am always so distracted and busy.

And this is a dress I’ve only worn once. I bought it to wear to my friend Patsy’s wedding last November. Her only instructions to the brides maids were to wear a pink dress so everyone did their own variation.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Coral 3/4 sleeved skater dress from eBay. (Tags were cut off even though it was brand new)

Leggings: Black opaque tights from DOROTHY PERKINS

Accessories: Owl ring from ACCESSORIZE (gift from Tamares); Gold and silver bangles from FRENCH CONNECTION; Cloud and lightning bolt brooch from MADEBYWHITE; Pink crocheted frosted cookie from TWINKIECHAN

Footwear: Black wedge pumps from ZIPIA

Hey hey it’s WHAT THE FROCK WEDNESDAY and my first day back at work. I miss Melbourne and hanging out with my inner circle but I’m happy to be back in my office socializing with my pals!

I even had a yummy chicken ramen lunch at Tori King with XH and Pearlyn! I miss our lunch chats and epicurean journeys during the work day. Today we travelled to Tanjong Pagar!

Here’s a new dress and I really love it! Got it from OFF YA TREE in Melbourne. I love that shop! The guys in there are pretty chill & easy. Bought 2 dresses from the one on Elizabeth Street. I love HELL BUNNY dresses more than ever now!

What do you think of my Pudgy-overaged-Harajuku-Taylor-Swift-getup? MWAHAHAHAHA!!! I can’t stop laughing as I type this.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Black ruffle “Margot Floral” dress with pink/purple prints from HELL BUNNY

Outerwear: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: Floral shabby chic necklace from ACCESSORIZE

Tights: Hot Pink semi-sheer stockings from idon’tknow

Footwear: Brown distressed leather booties from RUBI SHOES

I usually dress down on Fridays and my staples are jeans and a indie band tee. But because I’m attending my colleague Winnie’s wedding at 7.30pm and I only knock-off at 6pm, I felt it’d be too inconvenient to change. Was also a little too lazy to bring another outfit. I think this is a good attempt to transition.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Navy 1950s-inspired dress with smocked back from H&M

Accessories: Gold bow-shaped earrings from BETSEY JOHNSON (off eBay); Floral leather & buttons shabby-chic necklace from ACCESSORIZE (gift from my pal in the UK, Wasya Birtle)

Footwear: Black ballet flats with bow from GEOX

yeahyeahyeah… I need to get dressier shoes. But it’s hard to get something comfortable and easy to wear everyday. I have RA (still mild now) and wearing heels aren’t an option these days. When it flares up, I find it hard to move (some days I can’t get out of bed and just have to lie there motionless in pain) and I don’t want to stress my joints to aggravate or speed up the deterioration. Any ideas where I can find dressier shoes under USD100 that won’t hurt me?

Thanks for the pictures Sian Eng. I think this girl is getting really good at it. We take less than 2 minutes to get all the pictures I need these days! Pose snap, pose snap, comment, pose, snap. Done!

Today I spent the day at home with my Gran and I also tried cleaning my room and packing my clothes. I’m going out in a bit to watch Harry Potter with Faith and Tamares. Then we’re heading to a DJ Duel at Red Dot Traffic Museum.

This is easily one of my favourite dresses. Needless to say, it won’t be on my cull list. But there are several other vintage dresses that might be… haven’t decided.
