What I’m wearing:

Dress: Multi-coloured strapless maxi dress from THE ISLAND SHOP

Accessories: Hot pink baubles statement necklace from FOSSIL; Purple stretchy belt with gold buckle from RIVER ISLAND

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

Footwear: Red lacquer platform sandals from ZARA WOMEN

So I’ve been asked why I’m always so happy in my pictures and I’m glad that people enjoy looking at me being all overtly jubilant because life can suck… You know? And nobody really wants to see a sullen picture of me. Some people have problems with their resting bitch face whereas I have a resting sad face. I actually look like I’m in pain when I’m not smiling. HAHAHA! Also, as I’ve mentioned before, wastedfashion is only a small part of my personal life. There are so many facets to it. (Just so you know, my husband forces me to read The Feeling Good Handbook…)

If there’s a secret or a tip behind taking crazy pictures like mine, it’s to play some music, dance (or sing) to it and take your photos early in the day before anyone can ruin your mood. Heh…

Onward with day uhmm… 4? 5? 6? of the unwashed denim shorts

IMG_5965I think by now you’d have figured what’s up. I haven’t changed or washed my shorts. I figured that if you can wear jeans for weeks without washing, denim shorts are essentially the same things except uhm… shorter. Let’s see how long I can go before I gross myself out. HAHAHA!!

Also, denim on denim is usually a no no but I reckon that a printed chambray (which is the lighter cousin of denim) with stars is not the exact same fabric, so it’s okay. What do you think?

IMG_5966What I’m wearing today:

Top: Blue chambray long-seelved blouse with star print from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Rocket Popsicle Brooch from TWINKIE CHAN; Natural bamboo weave bangle from THE ISLAND SHOP; 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: Black strappy peeptoe heels from KIMCHI BLUE (Urban Outfitters)

IMG_5806This is one of my favourite vintage dresses. It’s originally from the 80s and I got it on etsy (unfortunately the seller is no longer there). I’ve had it copied twice already! The cut-out back is my favourite part of course! And it doesn’t hurt that it skims my body and hides my belly fat!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Red 80s vintage shift dress with cut-out back from etsy

Accessories: Natural bamboo weave bangle from THE ISLAND SHOP; White vintage necklace from eBay

Footwear: Brown heeled clogs from OLD NAVY

IMG_5653This has been my default “travel tote”. I just dump everything I need when I’m out of state/country. Everything from my wallet and phone, to wet wipes and facial tissue, a spare cardigan or a bottle of water! I love that it’s so summery! Do you like carrying large bags?

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Charcoal grey cotton jersey JULIA dress from Patricia Valery on etsy.com

Accessories: Set of 4 bangles from PRIMARKLilac acrylic statement necklace from TALISMAN’S (at Far East Plaza)

Bag: Pink and Beige large canvas tote from KATE SPADE

Footwear: Sparkly purple patent leather ballet flats from STEVE MADDEN

These shoes are quite bad for walking too long in. They’re sparkly and pretty BUT it’s constructed with a very stiff manmade material that give me blisters – maybe because my feet are too wide. My little toes on the ends will develop bunions if I wear them for extended periods. I do love them so much and carried them from Singapore to Las Vegas because they are pretty! LOL! Got them from Zalora for a steal!

IMG_5431This is a post dedicated to my dear dear pal Tammy K because she got me this dress AND the clutch. I must clarify that she got this dress tailor-made FOR ME so it’s one of a kind! For no reason other than because she’s wonderful! She copied the pattern of a DOROTHY PERKINS dress she bought FOR ME (again) to wear to her wedding in England several years ago but I’ve since lost about 10kgs so this new dress needed to be cinched in with a big belt. Such a dear friend whom I miss so so much…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Beige dress with neon florals (one of a kind gift from my friend Tammy)

Outerwear: Silver 3/4 sleeve mini cardigan from DELIA*S

Accessories: Mint green ombre bead layered necklace from FOREVER21; Neon pink obi bow belt from H&M; Black bow ring from ACCESSORIZE

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

Footwear: Brown heeled clogs from OLD NAVY

IMG_5426This post features a bag I love but don’t have many occasions to carry because it’s too small for my regular wallet. And doesn’t go with most of my things. I usually carry it when nothing matches and I just want to clash all kinds of colours or prints in one outfit. BUT more importantly this outfit features my spanking brand new SUPERGA sneakers that I bought for the princely *snigger* sum of USD8.99!! ROSS did it again! I checked and they usually retail for USD50 upwards! Big pats on my back!!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black OPPOSITION PARTY band t-shirt

Bottom: Red KEITH HARING mini skirt from FOREVER21

Accessories: Pepperoni Pizza Brooch from TWINKIE CHAN on etsy.com; Set of 7 black & bronze bangles from NEW LOOK

Bag: Green polka dotted GARDEN PARTY kiss-clasp purse from DEJA VU VINTAGE

Footwear: Turquoise classic sneakers from SUPERGA

IMG_5427I just wanted to put it out there for posterity that the other day when I was putting hearts on all the lovely things I liked (but not buying) on ModCloth, my husband gave me a hug and said with a sad face “It’s okay honey, soon we’ll have money for you to buy all the things you want”. How sweet is that? Honestly, even if we had a $500,000 bank balance, I don’t think I’ll be spending $300 on shoes. It’s fun looking at nice things though…
