What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Grey/Black leopard print tank tunic/dress from EVANS

Leggings: Black footless tights with heart-prints from ebayer Be Happy n Love Always

Accessories: Spotted mushroom brooch by Tabitha Emma (bought at Trove)

Outerwear: Black merino wool cardigan with white trim from UNIQLO

Footwear: Black CUSHDY flats from IRREGULAR CHOICE

There actually is a method to today’s madness. The clashing prints and mish-mash is all about comfort. If you peep at me through your eyelashes, you can hardly notice the clash. It’s all black, grey and red. Hey! It works for me and I like it!

The GREAT SINGAPORE SALE has started and it’s evil. I’ve spent $21 on a Ripcurl clutch purse, $50 on bras & panties at LA SENZA, and $50 on accessories at DIVA. The discounts were too awesome to refuse. Damn.

Swingsation!

So after the outdoor photos were taken, I almost immediately regretted not accessorizing. Lucky for me, I keep a bag of accessories in the office! So I picked some up and retook the photos. Hence the overload today.

Super comfy outfit. Why didn't I start wearing this earlier?

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Belted black longline tunic top with ruffles from EVANS (worn as short dress)

Accessories: Black and silver triple-strand chain-link chunky bracelet from FRENCH CONNECTION

Footwear: Grey quilted ballet flats from CHOCOLATE SCHU BAR.

Today has been a busy busy busy day. I had a long department meeting to start the day and then I presented the programmes in my 2011 season for one of the series I’m in charge of. Then it was a whirlwind with an Approval Paper which I managed to submit within the day (ok, I cheated because I started writing it a while ago. All I needed to do was amend some things and tighten some budgets after my presentation). I also just completed a very important contract for the upcoming festival. GAH… My eyes are all red and tired now.

Pink & Booties

Pink & Booties

This wasn’t the outfit I envisioned when I decided on what to wear today. I first put on a bright pink leopard print polyester top from RIVER ISLAND and decided that they didn’t go with my F21 leggings (VPL and all that). Also, I came to work without the long cardigan. It just got cold in the office and I had it hugging the back of my seat. Today, I also have a new photographer. I say thanks to Stephanie from Corp Comms… my colleagues are awesome.

My Stuff: New EVANS purchases

They are here!!! Save for 2 items which are a little disappointing, I love them all! I wish the Polka-dotted Beth Ditto dress fitted me better but no biggie, I think I’ll go get it fixed (i.e. altered).

I tried on my Evans Zip Detail Shoe Boots

Other than these items, 3 handmade dresses from etsy also arrived. Also, I bought 2 tops last Saturday – 1 from DKNY and another from CLUB MONACO. I haven’t bought these many NEW things in a loooooong time. I usually thrift-shop and bargain hunt. EEEEEEK! I think I’m going to be so shocked when my credit card bill arrives this month *bites lower lip* Thank god for the extra $$ coming in through a show I’m doing next week. *meep

EVANS Beth Ditto Autumn/Winter 2010

I’ve been reading so much about the new Beth Ditto collection (good & bad) and I missed out buying from the last. It’s bound to happen. I just caved in and bought stuff from the new Beth Ditto collection (and then some). Got a discount of £42.80 and shipping only came up to £10.50.

While I’m not a review-writing person, here are some I like:

Corpulent – Part 1/Part 2

Oh, the Place You’ll Go

And these are the things I ordered…
