This is a weird one for a fashion post but not unusual for a wastedfashion post. I wore this outfit last Sunday when T and I took Max the Maximum Dog out to Red Rock Canyon for a leash-free run. Yes, I hiked for about 40 minutes along a trail that was a prehistoric seabed. It was a moderate hike and we didn’t finish the trail. It was relatively easy with mild slopes so I could do it in this outfit. Heehee…

What I wore last Sunday to hike the Red Rock Canyon Calico Tanks:

Top: Silver sweater with hearts from DELIA*S

Bottom: Navy tulle skirt with diamante from FAITH21 (former name for Forever21+)

Accessories: Silver and green beads layered necklace from ACCESSORIZE

Footwear: Women’s Fastpack Paceline Mid Hiking Boot from TIMBERLAND

20131112-185903.jpgI strongly recommend these boots for the style, fit and price (I paid USD60). They’re so easy to walk in and also, check out Red Rock Canyon too! I should do a post on our hike soon.

Hello it’s Wednesday… Sorry, I forgot I wanted to do What The Frock Wednesdays again. HAH!

Thanks to the kind people at WE LOVE COLORS, I am in love with my brand new Plus Sized Splash Color Tights! I was looking for something blue and not quite galaxy print because I’ve already got 2 pairs in the footless style. This is colour #2132. size A/B. For reference, I’m a UK16/18 and I’m 5′ 0″ (or 1.53m). The tights are a little too long and comes up to just under my boobs but this happens to me all the time because I’m Plus Petite. As with the other WE LOVE COLORS stockings, this has a very strong built-in gusset – which is very important to me as most hosiery manufacturers seem to neglect it. The crotch gusset reduces the stress caused by tugging when you pull them up, so the tights lasts longer and doesn’t rip. Who wants crotchless stockings??? At the same time, I feel that it eliminates the gross camel-toe effect.

Anyway, thank you Sian Eng again for today’s photos.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey HELLO KITTY tank top from FAITH21 (former Forever 21+)

Skirt: Black weave cotton skater skirt from TOPSHOP

Outerwear: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: Purple necklace/earrings from JuanitaTortilla; Wood cut sleeping fox brooch from Dulcetfig; Purple stretchy belt (came free with a dress) from DOROTHY PERKINS

Leggings: Blue Plus Sized Splash Color Tights from WE LOVE COLORS

Footwear: Black square studded P. Galia loafers from STEVE MADDEN

I don’t think I like this top. It keeps slipping all over. My shoulders are not broad enough for it. I think I bought the wrong size. *Sigh*

Wow! 151 posts. I am still amazed. This transformation from jeans, t-shirt & sneakers to dressy dress-up daily is a little crazy for something that happened just under 2 years ago.

Pink & Black is possibly my latest fav combination

Top: Baby pink t-shirt with bow from NEW LOOK

Bottom: Black sequinned flared mini skirt from FAITH21

Accessories: Black plastic beaded necklace from some random street shop

Footwear: Black slingback peeptoe wedges from CLARKS

You do realise that this is a very close variation to my Oct 1st Children’s Day outfit right? The tops and skirts are from the same range in their own brands! See here!

Forget demure... Cheeky it is.
