An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

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


Fat-shionista #468

Hello I’m back and have you heard? I’ve been nominated for the Singapore Blog Awards 2013! I’m one of the top 10 finalists for the Levi’s Best Fashion Blog so please vote for me! Online voting constitutes 30% of the score. And you can vote once a day, everyday until 23 June 2013! I dedicate this to all the fat girls who make things happen for themselves. Style comes in size fat and you better believe it!

Today, I’m wearing a dress that I think I’ll wear very often from now onwards. I can’t believe I took so long with this one. Totally in love with this ASOS Midi Dress (yes, I realise it’s a maxi on me). The jersey fabric is super soft and I can see myself sleeping in it. Unfortunately though, I’m so short (1.53m) that the dress is a tad too long (Ryd says I look like a pilgrim) and the sleeves need to be folded so that my hands can move. I bought it in a UK16 and it’s less than SGD30! SCORE! With ASOS’s free shipping too! w00t!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Grey Midi Dress with long sleeves from ASOS

Accessories: Red plastic pencil sharpener earrings and Multi-coloured long airplane necklace from Bitsch Kitsch; Fuchsia bangle from Sonia Rykiel pour H&M

Footwear: Brown distressed faux leather booties from RUBI SHOES

It’s the eve of Labour Day today and while most people enjoy the public holidays, my line of job serves when people are able to free time up to enjoy themselves. I got into the office before 9am today and will be working till 11pm. Tomorrow, Labour Day, I’ll be in from 3-11pm.

I am counting down to seeing T again! 23 more days!!! Yay!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Gypsy Lola Floral Mini Summer Dress from HELL BUNNY

Outerwear: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: Natural weave bangle from ISLAND SHOP

Leggings: Chili Red grid pattern leggings from KATE SPADE

Footwear: Black square stud P Galia loafers from STEVE MADDEN

Hello it’s the 13th WHAT THE FROCK WEDNESDAY and hey 50 shades of grey. Ok maybe just 3…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Charcoal grey Julia Dress by PATRICIA VALERY on

Bottom: Black and Grey opaque leopard print tights from DOROTHY PERKINS

Accessories: Black chainmaille & cable tie necklace from theKANG; Natural weave bangle from ISLAND SHOP

Footwear: Black Mary-Janes FLATforms with toe cap studs from some shop in Far East Plaza

I’m wearing new lipstick – L’Oreal Color Riche 285 Pink Fever, to match my pink elasticized wrist supports. Too much crocheting. Arthritic hands are angry.



I think toothy grins look better on me. These half-smiles, closed-mouth affairs look more awry than wry or coy.


Thanks for being a sport Shridar Mani!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Floral ruffles top from The Garden Collection by H&M

Bottom: Black “Skinny” jeans from NEXT

Accessories: Pink bangle from Sonia Rykiel for H&M; Black beaded choker from some random street shop

Footwear: Black strappy heels from CAMPER

I can’t rock this look. I think the blouse will have to go. I really love it but it’s not my style. Also these jeans are supposed to be skinnies or at least that’s what the label at the back says. But I guess I’m so weirdly shaped that it only fits at the waist and it’s too loose around my legs. Gaaah!!

Last night was great! I met Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer at Stereolab. My friend (big) Natalie even had me emcee for the show. I was actually fretting (a little) over what to say even though I do this so often for local shows.

Anyway, this is what I wore:

Neon brights in the night!


Cardigan: Black 3/4 sleeve boyfriend cardigan from TOPSHOP

Top: Coral frilled strappy top with blue stars from TOPSHOP

Bottoms: Black slimfit trousers from ZARA Basic

Accessories: Bright pink plastic bangle from PRIMARK

Bag: Scurvy kiss-lock handbag from PAUL FRANK

Shoes: Taupe ballet flats from JONES BOOTMAKER



Here’s me going googly-eyed over Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman & Me!



And here’s (small) Natalie with him!
