IMG_8158So it’s officially Fall and it’s getting colder. I’m glad because Vegas can be really super hot and Summer has been unbearable. I’ve never had to endure the full length of a Vegas summer (previously I was here only for a week) but now that I have, I’m so glad to layer up! I’ll never complain about the cold again!!!

This jacket was first featured in a post I did while I was in Seattle with T (for PAX Prime). Because I didn’t take pictures of the gorgeous embroidery behind this time around, you can click on that previous post to see what it looks like. I like that it looks like a generic utility jacket and this mossy green is perfect for hiding stains… HAHAHA!IMG_8159What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black t-shirt from Singapore thrash metal band Ossuary (yes, I literally only wear band t-shirts.)

Outerwear: Green unlined utility jacket with white skull embroidery from ZANZEA_MODE on eBay

Acccessories: Black flower barrette from ASOS

Bottom: Grey knit mini skirt from COTTON ON

Footwear: Dark beige moto boots from MADDEN GIRL

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!

OMG! Can we talk about these sandals or slides or slippers or whatever you call them? They are super comfy! The band across is soft and stretchy. The height of the platform is super easy to walk in. And I got them at TJ MAXX for only $15 on clearance! I googled and found out that STEVEN by STEVE MADDEN is their more “mature” and “comfortable” yet still trendy range of footwear. I imagine them to be more trendy Scholls but honestly, some of their other designs are not so feet friendly – less support and quite stiff. Anyway… THESE sandals have officially put me at my age! WA HAHAHAHA!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Paint daub splatter dress from FAITH21 (former name of FOREVER21 PLUS)

Accessories: Gold spikes and matte black skulls necklace from AYLISS DESIGN on eBay

Outerwear: Black batwing cardigan from COTTON ON

Footwear: Black platform sandals from STEVEN BY STEVE MADDEN

This is one of those dresses I hardly wear because I never brought it back to Singapore. I ordered it online and it got sent to Las Vegas sitting here for a month or so until I visited T (this was before we were married). I wore it once during a holiday here then I went back to Singapore for months, leaving it behind. Then I came back again and wore it another one time before the weather turned and it was too cold to wear again until now… hahaha… Poor neglected dress.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Mint green sleeveless dress from DELIA*S

Outerwear: Black batwing cardigan from COTTON ON

Accessories: Grey Chinese knot necklace from 2014happy5866 on eBay; Beige & neon pink stretchy belt from H&M

Bag: Purple polka-dotted clutch from WISHFUL THINKING on etsy.com

Footwear: Purple sparkly ballet flats from STEVE MADDEN
