An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

Fatshion, Food & Frivolities – Life in Las Vegas & Singapore

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!

Someone said I wear dresses everyday so there was no need for WTFW. But hey! It’s not true. Somedays I am lazy and wear what’s most practical (read: unimaginative). LIKE TODAY!

Top: Orange frilly top with blue stars from TOPSHOP

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

Footwear: Black ballet flats from GEOX

This was supposed to be yesterday’s WTFW. It’s not Wednesday, but WHAT THE FROCK anyway! It’s late because I didn’t leave the house, save for a trip to the doctor’s in my grotty shorts/tee combo. I was ill and I didn’t go to work. But here I am now and thank you to DEWI DIANA for taking these pictures! Because she’s in a fab outfit today, I took photos of her too!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Beige floral print dress from ESPRIT

Outwear: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: iPod Nano 6 with grey watch strap from iwatchz; Embroidered bird brooch from TABITHAEMMA on

Footwear: Black ballet flats from GEOX

How do you like my pseudo-librarian get-up? I imagine this is what I’d be wearing if I were a librarian. It’s too hot for a teacher though. The cardigan would make a pig out of me in our bloody humid climate. Yith! I know so… I spent enough time on both sides of the classroom.
