I’ve been covering my legs very often because the weather has been cold. I rotate between leggings and jeans but I suspect shorts would be thrown into the mix soon since the weather is warming up. Spring is so lovely here in Vegas!  


What I’m wearing today:

Top: Blue tanktop from OLD NAVY

Outwear: Grey hoodie from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Plastic airplanes necklace (gift from Tamares)

Bottom: Grey & White printed leggings from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Pink glitter sneakers from CONVERSE

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!



What I’m wearing today:

Top: Purple tank top with stripes from COTTON ON

Dress: Purple stretchy tank dress from TOPSHOP

Accessories: Rainbow-coloured felt button necklace from MIAOW & SQUEAK; Plastic PLAYMOBIL flower earrings from BITSCH KITCH; Pink bangle from SONIA RYKIEL POUR H&M

Bag: White pleather bag with pink bow and black accents from BETSEY JOHNSON

Footwear: Sparkly pink sneakers with elasticised laces from CONVERSE

It’s one of those days, you know? I always believe that even if you’re in a bad mood or have no mood for life at all, you still need to make effort to look decent. This is me trying to make it happen even though I just want to be in bed all day and do nothing.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Green “Louisa” mini dress from HELL BUNNY

Outerwear: Black long cardigan from COTTON ON

Accessories: Pink and purple flower hair barrettes (recent purchase, comes as a set of 2) from H&M

Footwear: Sparkly pink sneakers with elasticised laces from CONVERSE

First outfit post since I got back from Seattle. I finally got everything back in order. We had guests for 2 nights but I didn’t have a chance to wash the bedlinens or clean the guestroom until we got back from Seattle because they left our house a few hours before our flight. I usually unpack as soon as I can (within hours of getting home) because I imagine clothes and dirt festering in the suitacase… YITH! It took 2 loads of laundry but I’ve finally got all our Seattle clothes clean, folded and hung. Also cleaned the guestroom and put on fresh linens – T’s mom is coming to visit us in early October and I’m excited!

This is what I wore today when I went out to collect our prescriptions from Walgreens. Oldie but goodie!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Indonesian band GOODNIGHT ELECTRIC t-shirt

Accessories: Black pleather belt with silver buckle from H&M

Bag: Grey studs and skulls cross body bag from GORGEOUSLAND on eBay

Bottom: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Glitter pink elastic strap sneakers from CONVERSE

As you can tell, I’ve just been piling the Winter pounds. I’ve gained about 10 pounds and I think my family visiting has something to do with it. I’ve been eating more and more often. Also the feasting from Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I feel like my face is much rounder and my waistband a little snug even though I’m still wearing the same size.

This is what I wore today while I left my sick husband at home convalescing. Poor T…



Top: Grey sweatshirt from OLD NAVY

Bottom: Blue denim skater skirt from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Pink baubles statement necklace from FOSSIL

Leggings: Black tights with hearts from TOPSHOP

Footwear: Glitter pink elastic strap sneakers from CONVERSE

Bag: Vintage black floral shopping bag from ST MICHAEL’S

So last night, we drove to Culver City, California to be part of the IndieXchange Summit (an off-site event of IndieCade) and spent the night at TravelLodge (where these photos were taken).

Today, I basically spent my time chatting with other indie game makers, giving out T’s cards while he showcased his game Axiom Verge and playing CandyCrush while he attends the talks and meetings.

I’ve been to many festivals over the last 7 years (in my capacity as a delegate) for work. This is the first time just observing and just getting clued in. It’s amazing! From indie music to indie games!

Anyway, this is what I wore today:

Top: Grey NEW YORK DOLLS tank dress from eBay

Outerwear: Purple boyfriend cardigan from DELIAS

Accessories: Silver iPod nano watch and grey iWatchz strap

Bottoms: Galaxy-print footless tights from eBay

Footwear: Sparkly pink elastic lace sneakers from CONVERSE

I’m wearing something I just wore recently (omg *gasp*). It’s really versatile and I really do love how it fits. Also, it has POCKETS! A tunic top/dress thing with pockets! As you can see, I didn’t bother ironing it after I got it off the line. It’s not doing too badly in my opinion. Also, I’ve been trying to find a way to feature this belt that my pal Ryddy gave me a few weeks back. It’s really cute and I love the buckle – the white leather skinny belt made it that little bit difficult though. I don’t like white in general so I didn’t have a clue how to wear this one. I hope it works though!

This MS. READ round-neck, long tabbed-sleeved tunic retails for SGD89 (only SGD69 if you flash the special wastedfashion SGD20 off flyer (when making purchase) from now till 31 July 2013.
