Oh yes, after all that riot of bright colours and clashing prints, here’s something a little more sane. I can do regular too. I probably won’t dress like your regular 36-year old office lady type person but I can do decent and sedate when I feel like it. I think this is one of my favourite outfits – am I using the term “favourite” too liberally since everything on my blog appears to be a favourite? Who cares!

And what do people say about horizontal stripes not being too flattering? HERE’S A DOUBLE WHO CARES!!! Don’t be so self-conscious okay?

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Rugby white and grey 5/8 sleeve boatneck tee from OLD NAVY

Bottom: Black full midi skirt from ASOS PETITE

Accessories: Vintage teal and gold necklace from SELECT 18 (Soho, Hong Kong); Triple flower hair barrette from FOREVER21; White owl ring from DIVA ACCESSORIES

Bag: Red leather tote from KATE SPADE

Footwear: Black strappy peeptoe heels from KIMCHI BLUE (Urban Outfitters)

Thanks to Sian Eng for taking my outfit photo today!

Dress: Dark pink chiffon hi-low dress from FOREVER21

Accessories: Gold weave belt from H&M; Pearl, onyx and skull choker fr DIVA ACCESSORIES

I love that this dress has pockets! And oh yeah… Enjoy the sneak peek of my new, incomplete tattoo… This was done in 4hrs – my pain threshold kinda gave way after that. My next session is on 4 Jan 2013.

I’m doing a quick post through my iPhone. You probably can tell now that the layout is usually a little different when I do my blogging on the go.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Burgundy Wine Red Mini Dress with Black Lace Bust and Bow from Patricia Valery on etsy.com

Accessories: Gold geometric dangly earrings from GOGO PHILIP; Vivienne Westwood charm bracelet from eBay; White Owl ring from DIVA

Footwear: Grey quilted flats from CHOCOLATE SCHU BAR

I was in such a bad mood yesterday that I forgot to take pictures of yesterday’s outfit – which I thought was quite nice. I would have to wear it again next week and remember to blog about it. Tsk! Bad music makes me cranky. Why do people inflict it on me?
