An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

Fatshion, Food & Frivolities – Life in Las Vegas & Singapore


Fat-shionista #527

IMG_5426This post features a bag I love but don’t have many occasions to carry because it’s too small for my regular wallet. And doesn’t go with most of my things. I usually carry it when nothing matches and I just want to clash all kinds of colours or prints in one outfit. BUT more importantly this outfit features my spanking brand new SUPERGA sneakers that I bought for the princely *snigger* sum of USD8.99!! ROSS did it again! I checked and they usually retail for USD50 upwards! Big pats on my back!!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black OPPOSITION PARTY band t-shirt

Bottom: Red KEITH HARING mini skirt from FOREVER21

Accessories: Pepperoni Pizza Brooch from TWINKIE CHAN on; Set of 7 black & bronze bangles from NEW LOOK

Bag: Green polka dotted GARDEN PARTY kiss-clasp purse from DEJA VU VINTAGE

Footwear: Turquoise classic sneakers from SUPERGA

IMG_5427I just wanted to put it out there for posterity that the other day when I was putting hearts on all the lovely things I liked (but not buying) on ModCloth, my husband gave me a hug and said with a sad face “It’s okay honey, soon we’ll have money for you to buy all the things you want”. How sweet is that? Honestly, even if we had a $500,000 bank balance, I don’t think I’ll be spending $300 on shoes. It’s fun looking at nice things though…

I think I look so much better when I do actually plan my outfit with an existing wardrobe I’m familiar with, instead of throwing on the newest thing I get my hands on.

Today was one of those days where I just grabbed something from the wardrobe and made it an easy day for me. I love this outfit so much that I risk actually being sloppy in it – it’s just too comfortable!

Easy like Sunday Morning... except it's only Thursday

Making a regular band t-shirt fit a stubby frame

Making a regular band t-shirt fit a stubby frame

This is my friend Wasya’s husband Ben (Wasya’s the shadow on the right taking the picture). We were at Lulworth Cove in Dorset earlier this year to check out the Jurassic Coast. I wore my favourite ballet flats and trudged up and down the rocks! Jones Bootmaker makes great shoes! I only wear band t-shirts (I made up that rule myself ok!) and this was given to me by an Indonesian outfit called Elemental Gaze. To make the t-shirt fit me better, I widened the neckline, trimmed off the sleeves and shortened the length by snipping about an inch off the hem. I do that with a lot of my t-shirts. It’s easy and it fits better!!!

What I’m wearing:

Top: Band t-shirt from Elemental Gaze

Belt: A US$2 thing my sister got from an outlet near her place in New Hampshire

Bag: Clamshell kiss-lock pink synthetic leather purse from Miss Selfridge

Bottoms: Dark blue jeans from Dorothy Perkins

Shoes: Taupe ballet flats from Jones Bootmaker
