Dress: Light mint green dress from XHILARATION (at Target)

My pals Little and his wife Joanne are in town visiting me and this is what I wore to show them around the Las Vegas Strip yesterday – bright and cheery but still sensible for lots of walking! What do you think of my 1st fat-shionista post with the new hair? It’s all shaved and buzzed like a boy’s at the back and I coloured it red myself to save money!

IMG_5803That’s a Christmas ornament I haven’t put away yet. In my defence, I’ve tidied up the rest of the garage and stored all our other holiday decorations in a nice big box. This glittery silver star was on the sideboard in our bedroom next to my accessories trees and I just forgot.

A side note about our Christmas decor – since T and I got to start this tradition together and he’s never had a tree prior to the one we got last year, I decided that ALL the ornaments on our tree will come with a story. This was a gift from his Step Mom Mama Judy that she literally took off from her tree, his Aunt Kathy gave us a silver one that read “Our 1st Christmas together”, there were 2 glass baubles we bought together at Cactus Joe’s, and one that T bought as a Christmas gift for me that had our names and said “Just Married”. That’s all we have for now but we’ll grow into our collection…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Cream Aki Goth Mini dress from HELL BUNNY (I got this from Sirens & Starlets)

Accessories: Black & grey mirrored acrylic necklace from THE BLACKGROUND

Footwear: Black gladiator wedges from KENNETH COLE REACTION

This is one of my favourite ASOS purchases. I like skater dresses and skirts because of my lack of curves. I need the flare of the skirt to break the solid block that is my body. Also ASOS has a Petite range and there are always copies of the same item that’s found in their Straight size collection for shorter people. I’m between 5′ 0″ and 5′ 1″. I always say 5′ 0′ because it’s neater. HAHA!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Black rosette skater dress from ASOS

Accessories: Blue chinese knot necklace from FONDA (at Far East Plaza); Brown faux leather belt from STEVE MADDEN

Footwear: Brown heeled clogs from OLD NAVY

If you’re under 5′ 4″ too, where do you normally shop? I would really like to get into Maxi dresses but it’s so difficult to buy something off the shelves without having to get it shortened.

IMG_5647I’m looking at these pictures and I think about how I’ll be turning 36 in exactly 2 months to the day. When I was a teenager, I thought that 30-somethings had to have permed hair and wear blue eyeshadow AND red lipstick. My life is nowhere near what I imagined it would be. 36, jobless and childless. But it’s not a bad life at all. I’m thankful for all that I have and all that I’ve become. I just never thought I’d be wearing a bold pineapple print skirt at my age. What did I know?!

I love my Pineapple skirt. I love food-themed clothes and accessories. I love food. PERIOD.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Purple striped tank top from NEW LOOK

Outerwear: Mustard yellow sheer jacket from a nonameshop in Far East Plaza

Accessories: Colourful shards necklace from LOUCHE ACCESSORIES (JOY store in London)

Bag: Black & white patent leather dog cross body bag from EASYTRADE2099 on eBay

Bottom: Pineapple print pencil skirt from H&M DIVIDED

Footwear: Dark Purple sueded platform wedge pumps with bow from HAILEY JEANS CO (on AMAZON)

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!
