IMG_6009Does my top look familiar? That’s because you’ve seen that print HERE! It’s a dress, yes! What I’ve done is to capitalise on the fact that the dress has a wide circle skirt and just threw the black one over so there’s some shape. Now what do you think about that? Hahaha…

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Green flower dress with pink and orange accents from LURVE HANDLES (worn as a top)

Bottom: Black full midi skirt from ASOS PETITE

Bag: Black kiss-clasp purse from PAUL FRANK

Footwear: Black wedge pumps from ZIPIA

IMG_6010I definitely look like I’m in pain. HAHAHA!! I guess I either give it a big grin or don’t. The half-way smile thing just doesn’t work for me.

This is one of my favourite ASOS purchases. I like skater dresses and skirts because of my lack of curves. I need the flare of the skirt to break the solid block that is my body. Also ASOS has a Petite range and there are always copies of the same item that’s found in their Straight size collection for shorter people. I’m between 5′ 0″ and 5′ 1″. I always say 5′ 0′ because it’s neater. HAHA!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Black rosette skater dress from ASOS

Accessories: Blue chinese knot necklace from FONDA (at Far East Plaza); Brown faux leather belt from STEVE MADDEN

Footwear: Brown heeled clogs from OLD NAVY

If you’re under 5′ 4″ too, where do you normally shop? I would really like to get into Maxi dresses but it’s so difficult to buy something off the shelves without having to get it shortened.

Oh yes, after all that riot of bright colours and clashing prints, here’s something a little more sane. I can do regular too. I probably won’t dress like your regular 36-year old office lady type person but I can do decent and sedate when I feel like it. I think this is one of my favourite outfits – am I using the term “favourite” too liberally since everything on my blog appears to be a favourite? Who cares!

And what do people say about horizontal stripes not being too flattering? HERE’S A DOUBLE WHO CARES!!! Don’t be so self-conscious okay?

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Rugby white and grey 5/8 sleeve boatneck tee from OLD NAVY

Bottom: Black full midi skirt from ASOS PETITE

Accessories: Vintage teal and gold necklace from SELECT 18 (Soho, Hong Kong); Triple flower hair barrette from FOREVER21; White owl ring from DIVA ACCESSORIES

Bag: Red leather tote from KATE SPADE

Footwear: Black strappy peeptoe heels from KIMCHI BLUE (Urban Outfitters)

I consider today’s outfit a dress-down-day. I’ll be meeting 2 friends from Secondary school for lunch today and thought I should just blend into the crowd especially since I haven’t seen them in years. Wouldn’t want them to feel weird around me, you know? What do you think?

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Rainbow print skater dress from ASOS PETITE

Accessories: Stack of 7 bangles from NEW LOOK; Black pleather weave belt from thestreetsofbangkok

Skirt: Peach meringue petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Footwear: Purple glitter ballerina flats from STEVE MADDEN
