IMG_96612 posts in 1 day! OMG!!! Heh… just trying to catch up and I do like today’s ensemble. Especially my new floral crown and geometric necklace. They were recent purchases that I got from the H&M at Caesar’s Palace here in Vegas. But, here’s a little ranty tanty – my necklace was supposed to be on sale for $3 and when I got home I found that I’ve paid full price for it despite seeing the price flashed on the cash register and asking TYLER (YOU TYLER YOU!!) to double check. He told me to rest assured that he’s keeping an eye on it because it happened several times and he had to manually discount the items. I ended up paying almost $13 for it. I won’t trust you again Tyler from H&M at Caesar’s Palace! The good thing is that I like the necklace enough that $13 is no biggie.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey geometric print long-sleeved crop top from MOSSIMO SUPPLY CO

Accessories: Dark blue floral crown from H&M; Black & yellow geometric acrylic statement necklace from H&M

Bottom: Black full midi skirt from ASOS PETITE

Footwear: Black wedge pumps from ZIPIA

IMG_9659Back to regular programming! Frivolous posts and all!

I spent the last weekend helping T at his booth at the 1st ever Playstation Experience. While he’s done several trade shows this year, this is the first one in our home state. I was honestly very skeptical before the event because there wasn’t very much hype unlike E3 or PAX. We were however kept sufficiently busy with a steady stream of people at the 2 terminals trying out the Axiom Verge demo. It also helped that T’s new business manager Dan lined up a lot of press coverage. It’s their first event together since signing a contract several months ago. I’m very grateful for all the help that has been rendered and I do see my husband being a little less nervous because really, all he wants to do is to make the game. We’re both very relieved that someone really connected is there to take care of the PR and design business strategies.

So anyway, T’s game has a playable demo in stores across the US right now. Stores like Target, Best Buy and Gamestop with Sony Playstation kiosks would have it! EXCITING TIMES!

And this was what I wore to yesterday when we picked Dan up from his hotel and sent him to the airport:

Dress: Mint Green Louisa dress from Hell Bunny

Outerwear: Blue denim jacket from High Sierra

Accessories: Gold & lilac statement necklace from H&M; Bright pink floral headband from ASOS

Leggings: Red opaque leggings from Uniqlo

Footwear: Dark beige moto boots from MADDEN GIRL

IMG_9289I’ve decided that the next time I wear this ensemble, it’ll be for Christmas. FIngers crossed that it’ll be warm enough indoors when we’re in New York though… What do you think? I think it’s quite Christmassy, no? Of course, I’ll have a super fluffy down-feather mid-length coat with me as well.

Yesterday was cheap pizza Wednesday and I usually go to Glazier’s to get a large Cheese pizza for $5.99 but instead, T and I skipped our routine and had Chicago-style deep-dish at Amore Taste of Chicago (just about 15 minutes drive from where we live). It was delicious and superbly filling!! I’m glad I wore something bulky and baggy… HAHHAHA!!

What I wore yesterday:

Top: Grey superheroes sweatshirt from MARVEL

Accessories: Red & Blue Power Rangers earrings from VICTORIA JOMO at Haji Lane (Singapore); Black flower barrette from ASOS

Bottom: Light blue chambray skater skirt from OLD NAVY

Leggings: Crimson opaque tights from UNIQLO (these are highly recommended! Super smooth and durable too)

Footwear: Black slouchy boots from AMAZON

So after I got dressed, I went up to T’s office (which is on the 3rd floor of our house while our bedroom is on the 1st) and showed him my outfit. I asked him what he thought of it and of course, my husband who tries to always be gentle with me didn’t say anything mean even though I could see in his eyes that he was a little bewildered. He merely said “hmmm… that’s random. Are you selling these clothes?”. HAHAHA!

IMG_9039IMG_9037So I was off to the Post Office again today. I’ve been selling on Vinted and so far, I’ve made about 5 sales. I like the Post Office on Russell. I go there often because I also send things out for T. It gives me the opportunity to get out of the house, you know?

Anyway, this is what I wore today:

Top: Grey striped 3/4 sleeved boatneck sweater from NEW LOOK

Outerwear: Light grey cropped motorcycle jacket from ADIDAS ORIGINALS

Accessories: Blue and Pink jewel statement necklace (gift from Pris Boh)

Bottom: Black full midi skirt from ASOS PETITE

Bag: Pink bow and black trim beige bag from BETSEY JOHNSON

Footwear: Tan Bow-Tie Ballet Flats from OLD NAVY

IMG_8158So it’s officially Fall and it’s getting colder. I’m glad because Vegas can be really super hot and Summer has been unbearable. I’ve never had to endure the full length of a Vegas summer (previously I was here only for a week) but now that I have, I’m so glad to layer up! I’ll never complain about the cold again!!!

This jacket was first featured in a post I did while I was in Seattle with T (for PAX Prime). Because I didn’t take pictures of the gorgeous embroidery behind this time around, you can click on that previous post to see what it looks like. I like that it looks like a generic utility jacket and this mossy green is perfect for hiding stains… HAHAHA!IMG_8159What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black t-shirt from Singapore thrash metal band Ossuary (yes, I literally only wear band t-shirts.)

Outerwear: Green unlined utility jacket with white skull embroidery from ZANZEA_MODE on eBay

Acccessories: Black flower barrette from ASOS

Bottom: Grey knit mini skirt from COTTON ON

Footwear: Dark beige moto boots from MADDEN GIRL
