Just a couple of weeks ago, I mentioned in a blog entry that you’d be seeing me with more hair accessories now since my hair is longer and fluffier (read: more unruly). And TAH DAH! Here’s me with a new hair piece sponsored by Samantha Gan, the brains and nifty fingers behind Frills and Fancies. I love supporting small businesses, creative start-ups and indie crafters. Frills and Fancies is right up the alley. This week, I’ll be wearing some accessories sponsored by them and YOU, my readers stand a chance to win these very items from Frills & Fancies! All you need to do is LIKE the Frills and Fancies facebook page and LIKE the wastedfashion facebook page; then go to Frills and Fancies’ page and say which item you want. You might want to wait till I feature all 4 (count ’em FOUR) sponsored accessories before going “I WANT”. Unless of course you already know what you want. This giveaway is open to all WORLDWIDE and will end next Sunday 23 June 2013. Samantha will pick the 4 lucky winners at random.

Today, I’m wearing one of T’s favourite outfits – or a variation of how I last wore it. Maybe he will unfavourite this, who knows? Men! Pffftt… Anyway…

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey lace-insert tank top from TOPSHOP

Outerwear: Orange and brown plaid shirt from ATMOSPHERE (Primark)

Bottom: Grey elastic-waist hi-lo skirt from NEW LOOK

Accessories: Blue/Orange/Pink JANICE infinity bracelet (worn as a hippy headband) from FRILLS & FANCIES (It’s so cool! It has little guitar charms all around!)

Footwear: Black square studded P Galia loafers from STEVE MADDEN

And my crazy photographer Shridar Mani for his 4-panel jumpshot (sorry I failed to capture it).

I’d like to talk about these shoes! My friend Atom from this really rocking band, Hedgehog, bought it for me because I couldn’t find similar ones in Singapore AND, my pal Joe, lovingly carried it back from Beijing!

Oh and I realized I didn’t have lipstick on in the photos and looked kinda washed out. So as an after thought, here – L’Oreal Color Riche 285 Pink Fever.

This is a retrospective post. This set of pictures was taken by Rydwan in his East Finchley home in London. It was actually VERY VERY COLD and my teeth were chattering when we took these pictures in the garden.

I'm a flasher!!! For that 30sec, I almost froze to death

I haven’t had time nor the inspiration to do my WIWT pictures. I’ll probably rehash the outfits next week because they’re actually quite nice. 😛

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Blue and black shift dress from ATMOSPHERE (Primark)

Leggings: Sheer stockings with bows from NEW LOOK

Footwear: Grey and gold ballet flats from CHOCOLATE SCHU BAR

Another day, another dollar. I’m looking at these pictures and thinking… hmmm… why no accessories today? Damnit! I have just the perfect brooch for this outfit. Maybe a belt too.

I look awkward today because I am. I’m a little tired and I think I need a break soon – like a proper holiday. Afterall, I still have over 20days annual leave unclaimed and it’s already OCTOBER!

See my blinged out iPhone 4! Heehee

Primark dress

My dress is very tight today around the waist. I guess I must’ve eaten too much yesterday and overcompensated the fact that I wore a baggy dress. Damnit!

Still not feeling it right... HAH
