IMG_7953Today’s outfit is more about the accessories than anything else. I got this necklace in the mail a few days ago from my dear dear friend Ryddy (along with chopsticks, another pin and a lovely birthday card). And because I love it so much, I’m going to wear it for the next few days – it’s kitschy but it’s so versatile with my wardrobe!

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

My colleague Xavier went “WAAAAAAAAH!” in shock when he walked past me just as I was about to go get today’s outfit photo taken. Noting that the colours are rather muted today, I can only assume that it’s my neon orange hair bow. Well, actually Sian Eng was the one who brought it up. She found the bow quite a distraction when I last wore it. Apparently, it’s always at the corner of her eye or in her line of sight. What do you think?

I love this bow!! It’s one of 2 that T bought me in Bangkok recently. Now that my hair’s a little longer (and somewhat fluffier), I think I’d like to dress it up more often with accessories. Watch out for bows, barettes and rosettes!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black sleeveless bra top from UNIQLO

Outerwear: Mustard yellow chiffon jacket from a nonameshop in Far East Plaza

Accessories: Long plastic airplanes necklace from Bitsch Kitsch; Neon orange polka dotted hair bow from thestreetsofbangkok

Bottom: Grey elastic-waist hi-lo skirt from NEW LOOK (Best skirt I own, in my opinion. Travels easy – light and no ironing required)

Leggings: Black tights with pink and blue hearts from TOPSHOP

Footwear: Mustard Yellow mary janes from ZIPIA

For some reason, today’s ensemble is so comfortable and makes me so happy! I think I will dress like this more often! Layered light fabrics FTW!

Whad’ya know? It’s Friday, Friday, Friday!! I’m so excited for the weekend to come. There are plans and there are plans! Happy Mothers’ Day in advance too!

As an aside to today’s outfit post, I want to talk about my plans for next weekend! I’m really excited about Flipside – 17 to 26 May 2013! Flipside is a family-friendly, all-ages festival that is held at Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay. Think of it as part carnival, part comedy festival, all fun! There are ticketed performances as well as lots of FREE ones! There are also other complementary activities if you’re not interested in watching a show.

I last caught The Kransky Sisters (Australia) when they were here in 2008. OMG! So hilarious! I highly recommend a girls’ night out for this show. Tickets are only $35 from SISTIC! I’ll be going to the one on 18 May at 3pm!! Also on 17 May at 7.30pm, The Sharpe Brothers (USA) will be performing comedic acrobatic stunts for free at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre. Won’t miss that one! The kiddies would love it too! The other show that I’d have like to catch (if I was here) would be Technodelic Visual Show by SIRO-A (Japan). They’re like Asia’s answer to The Blue Man Group. Tickets are also $35 from SISTIC – pity I’ll be in Las Vegas that weekend. If you go, let me know what you think okay?

Speaking of Flipside, I’ve been taking photos with the anamorphic artworks! (You can see more on their facebook page HERE!)
