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.

This morning T and I brought Max to the vet for a check-up to see if he is still cancer-free. He was a really happy dog the entire time until the swing doors opened and he remembered that we had to leave him there with the technician. There was a bit of a struggle but we managed. Poor doggie was so happy to see us when we picked him up!

And this was what I wore…

Another few more outfits before I hit #500! Ryd says I should do something special for it. He suggests wearing something different and taking pictures at the Botanics. But I feel it doesn’t represent this blog. My regular outfit posts are real clothes I wear to work (on most days) and it’s a literally WHAT I’M WEARING TODAY, no deliberate attempts to pretend it’s something it’s not. Also, no photoshop, no professional camera equipment. They’re usually “eh, you free for 3 minutes? Take my outfit photo please?”. I take photos and blog almost exclusively with my iPhone5. Maybe someday I’ll be all posey-posey and style myself in outfits that I’m not actually wearing on the day I take the photos… but not yet. What do you guys think? HEH!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: EDEN floral butterfly skull summer dress from HELL BUNNY (I got this from Sirens & Starlets)

Accessories: Mint green cord necklace from FONDA (at Far East Plaza)

Leggings: Grey pattern stockings from Vivienne Westwood (gift from Pearlyn)

Footwear: Brown Kandy Oxfords from Le Bunny Bleu (at Bugis+)

And those are Ryd’s Paul Smith kicks. If you like mine, they are retailing in Singapore at the Le Bunny Bleu shop in Bugis+ for SGD83 but ask for the wastedfashion discount and pay only SGD74.70!

Bought 7 of the 25 gifts I’m supposed to get and I’ve started counting down to my holiday! In less than 45 days, I’ll be back in Las Vegas. Then T and I will be travelling over several weekends (because he still has to work) to visit friends and family in California, Arizona and New York. YIPPIEE!

Talking about New York, did you hear that LeBunny Bleu is now in Singapore? We don’t have to make the trek to their NYC headquarters anymore! There is a LeBunny Bleu shop at Bugis+ (the mall formerly known as Illuma) and is located at the bridge connecting Bugis+ to Parco Bugis Junction. I love LeBunny Bleu for their quirky spins on classics like flats, canvas slip-ons, loafers and oxfords. And because they are mostly sensible shoes instead of ridiculously high heels, they’re exactly in line with my desire for comfort and style. Also, how can you resist their adorable bunny logo? It’s on everything! You also get to sit on bunny chairs while trying out shoes in the store! Prices in Singapore are comparable to their US-based online store, ranging from SGD60 – 95. The benefit is that you get to touch and feel the shoes in person, as well as save on shipping charges!
