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!

What I’m wearing today:

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)

Hello!!! It’s WHAT THE FROCK WEDNESDAY! I have lost count and I don’t care anymore! Ho Ho Ho!

Cabbie this morning asked if I was local (I get that a lot and I’m genuinely confused). He said I had an unusual face with good fortune and my life was blessed “above average”, BUT I should control my temper and it’s the only thing that holds me back from a truly fulfilling and progressive life. Heh…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Purple hi-lo dress with frills and elasticized waist from FOREVER21

Outerwear: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: Diamond & Sapphire ring (birthday gift from my mum); Cupcake bow ring from SewOeno on etsy; White “Carpe Diem” brooch from UntamedMenagerie¬†on etsy.com

Footwear: Black ballet flats from PRETTYFIT

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!
