Summer aka shorts-season is almost over and soon it’ll be cardigan season (my favourite)! Got about 2 or 3 more weeks to bare legs – shorts and skirts, before I start covering up slowly. My favourite thing to wear right now are shorts. These denim shorts = best purchase this summer! Got it on sale at OLD NAVY for only $14 and I think I’ve worn them so much, they’ve practically paid for themselves!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Red butterfly-sleeved top with white embroidery from FOREVER21 PLUS

Accessories: Mint green & silver multi-strand bead necklace from ACCESSORIZE; Black flower barrette from Forever21

Bottoms: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Black platform sandals from STEVEN BY STEVE MADDEN

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!

OMG! Can we talk about these sandals or slides or slippers or whatever you call them? They are super comfy! The band across is soft and stretchy. The height of the platform is super easy to walk in. And I got them at TJ MAXX for only $15 on clearance! I googled and found out that STEVEN by STEVE MADDEN is their more “mature” and “comfortable” yet still trendy range of footwear. I imagine them to be more trendy Scholls but honestly, some of their other designs are not so feet friendly – less support and quite stiff. Anyway… THESE sandals have officially put me at my age! WA HAHAHAHA!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Paint daub splatter dress from FAITH21 (former name of FOREVER21 PLUS)

Accessories: Gold spikes and matte black skulls necklace from AYLISS DESIGN on eBay

Outerwear: Black batwing cardigan from COTTON ON

Footwear: Black platform sandals from STEVEN BY STEVE MADDEN

IMG_6454Oh wow! It’s been along time since I last wore this dress. I think it was to my ex-colleague Grace’s wedding… I’m not sure why but I always feel like the frilly nature of the dress itself is too… uhm.. dressy. HAHAHA! And this makes me want to do some 70s disco dancing you know.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Fuchsia strappy hi-lo dress from FOREVER21

Accessories: Gold weave pleather belt from H&M; Natural weave bamboo bangle from THE ISLAND SHOP

Footwear: Black strappy peeptoe heels from KIMCHI BLUE (Urban Outfitters)

Another day in the life of a housewife living in the Mojave desert. I wore this to go pick up pizza and do errands at the Dollar Store!

Anyway, to beat the summer heat – more t-shirts and more shorts! I got these Old Navy shorts recently when they went on sale at $8 (originally $22.94) and like my cuffed denim shorts, they are a LIFE SAVER! I think the cuffs actually make them more “polished” if I can use that word to describe it. More, you know… dressy and less sloppy? What do you think?

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey TENNIS band tee

Accessories: Brown pleather belt from STEVE MADDEN; Set of 4 bangles from PRIMARK, Black bow headband with skull & crossbones from FOREVER21

Bottom: Barnswallow (That’s a COLOUR??) Cuffed-Twill Boyfriend shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Tan Bow-Tie Ballet Flats from OLD NAVY
