OMG it’s Friday! Where did the week go? Wooooosh! And you know what? It’s the Singapore Blog Awards Ceremony tomorrow! I’m bringing my pal, Natalie aka DJ Pixiedub as my date (approved by T, of course). She’s really excited and was egging me on to dress according to their 60s-theme. I had plans to wear something else though… BAH!

Today’s outfit, I feel befits the coming of the weekend. This MS. READ round-neck, long tabbed-sleeved denim-lookalike (100% tencel. SO soft and so light!) retails for SGD89 (only SGD69 if you flash the special wastedfashion SGD20 off flyer from now till 31 July 2013. No need to print. Just show on your mobile device.). But hurry! It’s one of their season must-haves and a top seller!!! I can see why it’s popular. It didn’t look like much when I saw it online but I thought I would just try it on because I was surprised by the material texture when I saw it in the store. You can wear the sleeves up or up. If you’re taller than I am, pairing it with capris or 3/4 leggings and ballet flats would be a great casual weekend look. Also I’m wearing my regular size, UK16 here.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Blue tunic with tabbed sleeves from MS. READ

Accessories: Green thick cord necklace from FONDA (at FAR EAST PLAZA); Gold weave belt from H&M

Footwear: Pink & leopard print creepers/flatforms from FROMTHEHEEL on eBay




From now till 31st July 2013, flash the above image (on your smart phone or mobile device) for a straight SGD20 off your total bill (for regular priced items) in store at 3 locations – Centrepoint, Metro Paragon and Metro Woodlands. wastedfashion readers can also get 20% discount for 1 entire year until 30 June 2014 by asking for the “wastedfashion discount”. (NOTE: Both discounts cannot be used simultaneously.)

This is a quick one. It’s getting late and I’m tired. Just got home from watching OCTOPUS by Compagnie DCA. A sensual, energetic dance production choreographed by French choreographer Philippe Decouflé, with pulsating live music accompaniment.

I need a little ranty tanty because I sat next to 3 really immature students (they mentioned they got cheap tickets with their student discounts) who kept whispering to each other and giggling at inappropriate moments. They looked like they were about 20 – give or take 2-3 years, so I don’t understand why they couldn’t shut up. The one right next to me tried copying some movements at the start – luckily she stopped after a while or I’d have reached over and grabbed her arm to stop her. (Hello! Personal space, please) I really hope they weren’t dance students because they ought to know it’s very disrespectful to be acting so childishly when people are performing. There’s female top frontal nudity and a part where a video showed a close-up of some tongues, and they gasped, giggled and made stupid comments.

PLAIN ANNOYING! Totally spoilt my enjoyment of the show. Stupid behaviour like that and flash photography – pet peeves when watching live performances. You agree?

Anyway, rant over. Here’s what I wore today.

Photos courtesy of Mrs K who thought I should document this outfit even though I thought it was only so-so (Love the unicorn rainbow print but I really don’t think this cut is for me… HOW?!)

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Custom Unicorn print dress from CandiedStarfish on etsy

Skirt: Peach Meringue petticoat from Domino Dollhouse

Accessories: White vintage necklace from eBay; Pink plastic heart ring from SIXX ACCESSORIES

Footwear: Nude patent leather flatforns from ZIPIA

Dress: Black mini dress with funny animals from H&M (love the bow detail at the back)

Bottom: Black 3/4 wet look leggings from misss_2007 on eBay

Accessories: Popsicle brooch/hair clip from TWINKIE CHAN on etsy; Red & Blue Power Rangers earrings from VICTORIA JOMO at Haji Lane

Footwear: Black Mary-Janes FLATforms with toe cap studs from some shop at FAR EAST PLAZA; Blue crochet lace socks from RUBI SHOES

I’m crazy about this new app I downloaded called iDarkroom. Am I overdoing it with the editing? Heh

Today I wore clashing prints and clashing colours (well I personally think green and pink are complementary). Thanks to Wen Rui for taking these photos near our office pantry!! Poor girl got accosted by me out of the blue!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Lime green mod dress from WYATTEDWARDVINTAGE on

Accessories: Black cable-tie necklace from theKANG

Footwear: Pink & leopard print creepers/flatforms from FROMTHEHEEL

Oh yes and do you like my new glasses? They’re from New China Opticians (3 Coleman Street #B1-12A Peninsula Excelsior Shopping Centre). I am impressed that it only cost me $120! And even more impressed that they took only 30 minutes to sort me out! This is great because I am one of those rare few who are hyperopic in Singapore.
