I love these 3/4 leggings! I can practically live in them. Today’s shoes makes me look taller and people think I’ve lost weight. Yay for FLATforms and creepers!

Thanks for the pictures Shridar!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Black mini dress with funny animals from H&M (love the bow detail at the back)

Bottom: Black 3/4 wet look leggings from misss_2007 on eBay

Outerwear: Pink long cardigan from DOROTHY PERKINS

Accessories: Popsicle brooch/hair clip from TWINKIE CHAN on etsy; Red & Blue Power Rangers earrings from VICTORIA JOMO at Haji Lane

Footwear: Black Mary-Janes FLATforms with toe cap studs from some shop at FAR EAST PLAZA; Blue crochet lace socks from RUBI SHOES

I’m crazy about this new app I downloaded called iDarkroom. Am I overdoing it with the editing? Heh

Today’s WTFW really is pulled together because I love the cupcake print of my new ASOS blouse. I don’t think it works though. How would you wear it? It looks quite ill-fitting and shapeless on me, no? I bought it in a UK16 and that’s my usual size. The purple tank dress is something I wear often for layering. I’ve worn it so many different ways! I love how it’s so versatile! It’s definitely one of those travelling must-brings!

Thanks Wen Rui for the snaps!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Purple tank dress from TOPSHOP

Accessories: Fat necklace from Fancy Lady Industries; Lightning bolt necklace from WICKED LAUNDRY (Haji Lane); Black noose string earrings from ISLAND SHOP

Shopping & hanging with Juanita part 2

I’m quite lucky to have been able to see Juanita again in a matter of weeks! This Globe-trotting woman was just in Nepal YESTERDAY! Before she heads off Down Under then returning to the other side of the world in Switzerland, we took the day to chit-chat and pick up from where we left off.

First was a late lunch. Then we watched The Dictator (funny! But not as good as Borat), then we wandered around Arab Street to buy fabric again. I was hunting for a plain BLUE cotton that I am determined to use with a retro floral fabric I bought with her the last time. I went with my gut feeling and I think it matches (see picture for reference. How?).

After that, we walked around the shops and ended up in a Turkish restaurant for mint tea.

Then we shared a dinner of Fish Briyani and Chicken Mutarbak at Zam Zam (washed down with a pink rose Bandung drink).

We shopped around Haji Lane for a bit and I picked up a gold lightning bolt necklace (Wicked Laundry) for a steal at $10! And then I couldn’t resist buying an overpriced pair of Power Rangers danglys for $20 (Victoria Jomo).

It was a good day…
