Hello! I’m back! I bought a 2nd hand iPhone 4 (not 4s) for S$300 and I’m going to try to keep up with the 1 post a day again. The camera quality is definitely poorer than the iPhone 5 and it’s rather slow to react. But hey! It does the job and I don’t have to relearn a new interface. Also, I synced my iPhone 5 with iTunes on my Macbook 4 hours before I lost the phone, so it’s still up to date. I’ll have to be extra careful with this one. Can’t afford to lose it again!

So anyway, my hair has exploded. Is it me or does my face look a lot rounder with this hairstyle? Heh… maybe it’s just me pretending that I’m not gaining weight. Who knows?

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Custom made copy dress (fabric from SPOTLIGHT Garden collection)

Outerwear: Lilac short sleeved cardigan from M&S FOR WOMEN (MARKS & SPENCER)

Accessories: Lilac ROXIE flower clip from MAD RABBIT KICKING TIGER (Gift from Junmin)

Footwear: Black ballet flats from GEOX

Not sure what the theme is but I piled on the arm swag this morning and I’m so happy! I love accessories! They are so fun! I’m glad there are lots of trendy and quirky things you can buy in Asia for cheap!

In my former job, my first Principal (or was it the VP?) told us that we shouldn’t distract the students by wearing too many accessories – I was just wearing a pair of dangling earrings, nothing more. I was quite afraid of getting into trouble and I didn’t dare accessorize (only wearing a watch or a small fine chain with a teeny-tiny pendant). I didn’t really wear bracelets or bangles (although I really love them) because I was told by a senior teacher that they make too much noise. Also students will stare at your hands when you write on the whiteboard, instead of paying attention to you. I don’t know if that’s true, what do you think?

Maybe I’m making up for it now. Today I’ve gone apeshit with the accessories! HAHA!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black tank top with red sequin hearts from NEW LOOK

Accessories: Ducks Charm Bracelet from WOODWOOD; Rock Love Music ring from INDIESIN; Stack of 7 black/bronze/silver bangles from NEW LOOK; Red & Bronze “Vivienne Westwood” bracelet from eBay; Black faux leather cuff bracelet from YOYOSTORE2010 on eBay; Black plastic bangle with ridges from THEBLACKGROUND: Black & gold skulls, lightning bolt and hearts earrings from PINKZOMBIES on etsy.com; Copper chunky ring from ISLAND SHOP; Red round plastic ring from thestreetsofbangkok

Bottom: Navy stretch jeans from RIVER ISLAND

Footwear: Black ballet flats from GEOX

Thanks Tamares for taking these photos!

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 I can’t get out of bed and just have to lie there motionless in pain) 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 need these days! Pose snap, pose snap, comment, pose, snap. Done!

Hello! Welcome to another WTFW! So many new frocks and I don’t know what to wear. Today we had to wear the company t-shirt uniform and I usually do it in a heartbeat – dressing it up with a nice skirt, tailored city shorts or jeans. But I was conflicted because I needed to wear A FROCK! Ok so now I’m wearing a t-shirt over my dress and it looks like a bright blue mini-skirt. Heh…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Bright blue puff ball hem dress from ASOS

Accessories: Red pencil sharpener earrings from BITSCH KITSCH; Gold dangling shards necklace from OLIVER BONAS; Book ring (gift from my sisters)

Footwear: Black ballet flats from GEOX

I think I’ll wear this dress with a belt in future. I love how it hangs though!

Thanks Tam for taking these photos! Sorry Sara, ugly (but damn bloody comfortable) shoes again!

Bottom: Navy blue jeans from DOROTHY PERKINS

Accessories: Polka dotted rope knot necklace from Ami The Vintagist; Gold dangly earrings from GOGO PHILIPS; Black belt with round studs from NEW LOOK; iPod NANO 6 with grey iwatchz strap
