IMG_5428This is basically my go-to travel outfit these days when I want to be girly but not impractically so. The 3/4 leggings are a god-send for walking (chub rub, you know) and I have 4 HELL BUNNY mini dresses that are so easy to just throw on. The funny thing about these leggings is that T loves them. He likes how they’re shiny and he touches them whenever I put them on. Some strange fetish perhaps? MWAHAHAHHA…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Mint green LOUISA dress from HELL BUNNY

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

Accessories: Black cable tie necklace from theKANG

Bag: Grey bag with leatherette bow from BERSHKA

Outerwear: Lilac 3/4 sleeve jacket from H&M Divided

Footwear: Brown Kandy Oxfords from Le Bunny Bleu (at Bugis+)

So what do you normally pack for a roadtrip? Shorts? Jeans? Something sensible and easy to stuff in a bag – uh… Like leggings and a t-shirt?

Oh Hell Bunny, how much do I love thee? I wish I had more Hell Bunny dresses!

And leggings! I’m wearing my all time favourite WE LOVE COLORS teal tights in size A/B. (I’m 5′ 0″ and a regular UK16 if you’re wondering about the fit.) Colour so rich, so soft, stretches well over my bum and belly and the gusset still going strong after multiple stretches and washes! Every non-average sized woman should own one!!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: EDEN floral butterfly skull summer dress from HELL BUNNY (I bought mine from SIRENS AND STARLETS. There’s a clearance going on right now!)

Accessories: Plastic airplanes necklace (gift from Tamares)

Leggings: Teal tights from WE LOVE COLORS

Footwear: Mustard coloured synthetic leather Mary Janes from ZIPIA

Hello this is the first outfit post of 2013! I’ve been away in Beijing and Hong Kong. It’s been freezing cold and I think I caught something in the pollution. I’m back and happy to be back, despite the good respite from the toil and grind of 9-to-5! (Actually it’s 8.30-6 for me)

Do ignore my weird expression – something’s not right with me because I’m ill but please enjoy my new HELL BUNNY dress! I have lost count… 4th?

Thanks for the fast fingers, photographer Eng!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: EDEN floral butterfly skull summer dress from HELL BUNNY (I got this from Sirens & Starlets)

Outerwear: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: White vintage necklace off eBay; Black calculator watch from CASIO; Blue ostrich skin tote from MARC BY MARC JACOBS

Legging: Black opaque tights from DOROTHY PERKINS

Footwear: Black square studded loafers from STEVE MADDEN

This is my favourite HELL BUNNY dress of the moment! If you want to buy me a gift for Christmas, I still love skulls & crossbones motifs but I also like pastel florals now. And if you can afford to get me a HELL BUNNY dress, I’m a UK16. Please get something with a smocked, stretchy back, no halter-necks and nothing too long. Hahahha!!! *shameless* No harm asking right?

I’m not sure what today’s theme for WHAT THE FROCK WEDNESDAY is but I like the colour scheme as well as how comfortable everything is. (Unlike the cupcake dress I wore on Monday, this HELL BUNNY dress has an elastic back – yay for stretch!!)

I think I’m going to milk this look in 2013 (with the occasional band t-shirt) till I get sick of it. Oh gosh! I love the Hell Bunny dresses!

Oh and this is a new cardigan I picked up from the M&S sale earlier. Only $20, I think. Adding to my collection of cardigans… heh…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Mint green “LOUISA” floral cherry rockabilly dress from HELL BUNNY

Outerwear: Lilac cropped 3/4 sleeve cardigan from M&S WOMAN

Skirt: Peach “MERINGUE” petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Accessories: Stack of 7 black/bronze/silver bangles from NEW LOOK; Black faux leather cuff bracelet from YOYOSTORE2010 on eBay; Silver cupcake & bow necklace from SEW OENO on etsy

Footwear: Black crochet socks and Brown distressed leather boots from RUBI SHOES
