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.

The order of the day used to be jeans & a band t-shirt… and sneakers. These days, I unconsciously make the effort to jazz up my outfits every single bloody day in order to ensure I have something worthy to post.
