My blog turned 3 on Monday 15 October 2012 and it was an uneventful day. I ran a blog giveaway to celebrate this but I didn’t get the pictures I wanted to do the post. Basically, I sent out packages about a month ago but only 1 person out of 3 got them. Baaah! Hope they are not lost.

Anyway, hey! It’s another WHAT THE FROCK WEDNESDAY! And I’m wearing the diamond and sapphire jewellery my mum gave me for my birthday this year, together with the Omega Seamaster that I received at my 21st.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Navy blue cherry print sundress from MARKS & SPENCER

Cardigan: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Bottom: Black meringue petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Footwear: Black ballet flats from AMERICAYA




Thanks Sianny! You’re really good at getting these pictures fast and beautiful!

It’s almost 10pm and it took me ages to get round to posting today’s WTFW because I didn’t bring my phone to work. I must say whilst I was mostly upset about not able to photograph my outfit today (yeah my priorities hahahaa), it was liberating!! It was good not to have to answer phone calls or worry about missing messages. I had a much better day.

A special thank you to Shridar for taking this photo with his phone and emailing it to me though šŸ™‚

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Blue spotty sweetheart neckline frock with a big circle skirt from H&M

Accessories: Kiss At Midnight earrings from Domino Dollhouse: iPod nano watch with grey iwatchz strap; Magnetic therapy bracelets from DAISO

Footwear: Black ballet flats from AMERICAYA


Nothing much to look at today. I enjoyed wearing this frock as it is. I’ve worn this several times on the blog but never as a WTFW feature though. So here you go, one my favourite dresses (gift from Rydwan, lovingly carried back from England last year)

And HEY! Don’t forget to join my SmartBuyGlasses giveaway!

I usually dress down on Fridays and my staples are jeans and a indie band tee. But because I’m attending my colleague Winnie’s wedding at 7.30pm and I only knock-off at 6pm, I felt it’d be too inconvenient to change. Was also a little too lazy to bring another outfit. I think this is a good attempt to transition.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Navy 1950s-inspired dress with smocked back from H&M

Accessories: Gold bow-shaped earrings from BETSEY JOHNSON (off eBay); Floral leather & buttons shabby-chic necklace from ACCESSORIZE (gift from my pal in the UK, Wasya Birtle)

Footwear: Black ballet flats with bow from GEOX

yeahyeahyeah… I need to get dressier shoes. But it’s hard to get something comfortable and easy to wear everyday. I have RA (still mild now) and wearing heels aren’t an option these days. When it flares up, I find it hard to move (some days IĀ can’t get out of bed andĀ just have to lie there motionless in pain)Ā and I don’t want to stress my joints to aggravate or speed up the deterioration. Any ideas where I can find dressier shoes under USD100 that won’t hurt me?



Thanks for the pictures Sian Eng. I think this girl is getting really good at it. We take less than 2 minutes to get all the pictures I needĀ these days! Pose snap, pose snap, comment, pose, snap. Done!

This is the start of “What The Frock Wednesdays” where I will attempt to only wear dresses on Wednesdays and photograph myself in them. This is an oft-worn/photographed dress. I love it because of the cut and print!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Red floral dress from New Look

Accessories: Japanese origami crane earrings (gift from Wai Peng & Winnie); iPod Nano 6 with red/black LunaTik watch strap; Black distressed leather belt from TOPSHOP

Footwear: Black ballet flats from GEOX

Thanks again to Rydwan who bought me the dress AND took today’s photos
