I am so inspired by the artwork on the Level 3 community wall at Esplanade! I am going to attempt to take outfit photos everyday for the next few weeks!

It’s called Weaving Dreams in the Wind and the dream catchers were made by participants from several welfare homes and organizations, facilitated by Mintio and Kabul (Singapore/Indonesia). There are a total of 3 walls and I’ve only taken photos in front on one!

Thanks again Sian Eng for the photos!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Red/White strappy floral dress from Forever 21 Plus.

Outerwear: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: Red beads and cowry shell handmade necklace from herphotoblog by Seraphina & Co

Footwear: Black ballet flats from AMERICAYA

My blog turned 3 on Monday 15 October 2012 and it was an uneventful day. I ran a blog giveaway to celebrate this but I didn’t get the pictures I wanted to do the post. Basically, I sent out packages about a month ago but only 1 person out of 3 got them. Baaah! Hope they are not lost.

Anyway, hey! It’s another WHAT THE FROCK WEDNESDAY! And I’m wearing the diamond and sapphire jewellery my mum gave me for my birthday this year, together with the Omega Seamaster that I received at my 21st.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Navy blue cherry print sundress from MARKS & SPENCER

Cardigan: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Bottom: Black meringue petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Footwear: Black ballet flats from AMERICAYA

It’s almost 10pm and it took me ages to get round to posting today’s WTFW because I didn’t bring my phone to work. I must say whilst I was mostly upset about not able to photograph my outfit today (yeah my priorities hahahaa), it was liberating!! It was good not to have to answer phone calls or worry about missing messages. I had a much better day.

A special thank you to Shridar for taking this photo with his phone and emailing it to me though ūüôā

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Blue spotty sweetheart neckline frock with a big circle skirt from H&M

Accessories: Kiss At Midnight earrings from Domino Dollhouse: iPod nano watch with grey iwatchz strap; Magnetic therapy bracelets from DAISO

Footwear: Black ballet flats from AMERICAYA

Nothing much to look at today. I enjoyed wearing this frock as it is. I’ve worn this several times on the blog but never as a WTFW feature though. So here you go, one my favourite dresses (gift from Rydwan, lovingly carried back from England last year)

And HEY! Don’t forget to join my SmartBuyGlasses giveaway!

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!

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

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.

Haven’t exercised for an entire month (because it’s my birthday everyday) and the FAT JEANS are out. I’m wearing my UK16 stretchy jeans and they’re a wee bit tight. Muffin tops are spilling over, yo! Time to cut back (erm… I’ll start on 1 October)
