An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

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

This is a weird one for a fashion post but not unusual for a wastedfashion post. I wore this outfit last Sunday when T and I took Max the Maximum Dog out to Red Rock Canyon for a leash-free run. Yes, I hiked for about 40 minutes along a trail that was a prehistoric seabed. It was a moderate hike and we didn’t finish the trail. It was relatively easy with mild slopes so I could do it in this outfit. Heehee…

What I wore last Sunday to hike the Red Rock Canyon Calico Tanks:

Top: Silver sweater with hearts from DELIA*S

Bottom: Navy tulle skirt with diamante from FAITH21 (former name for Forever21+)

Accessories: Silver and green beads layered necklace from ACCESSORIZE

Footwear: Women’s Fastpack Paceline Mid Hiking Boot from TIMBERLAND

20131112-185903.jpgI strongly recommend these boots for the style, fit and price (I paid USD60). They’re so easy to walk in and also, check out Red Rock Canyon too! I should do a post on our hike soon.

Hello from Nanuet, New York! I’m at T’s Grammy’s house and standing in the garden that his mom just planted this summer!

It’s a nice day out and about 20degC! I’m wearing something really light and that’s an unlined coat – just nice for the beginnings of Autumn (it’s going to take a while before I say Fall).


What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Purple/Pink/Black floral print dress from DOROTHY PERKINS

Outerwear: Beige baby-doll long coat from DELIAS

Accessories: Purple stretchy belt with gold buckle (came with the dress) from DOROTHY PERKINS; Coral floral hairpin from ACCESSORIZE

Bag: Black kiss-clasp purse from PAIL FRANK

Footwear: Purple ballet flats with bow from OLD NAVY

Pictures by T – I think he’s getting better!

Dress: Black rosette skater dress from ASOS

Accessories: Embellished Mirror Statement necklace from ACCESSORIZE

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




Thank you Sian Eng for these photos
