It’s one of those days, you know? I always believe that even if you’re in a bad mood or have no mood for life at all, you still need to make effort to look decent. This is me trying to make it happen even though I just want to be in bed all day and do nothing.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Green “Louisa” mini dress from HELL BUNNY

Outerwear: Black long cardigan from COTTON ON

Accessories: Pink and purple flower hair barrettes (recent purchase, comes as a set of 2) from H&M

Footwear: Sparkly pink sneakers with elasticised laces from CONVERSE

IMG_5803That’s a Christmas ornament I haven’t put away yet. In my defence, I’ve tidied up the rest of the garage and stored all our other holiday decorations in a nice big box. This glittery silver star was on the sideboard in our bedroom next to my accessories trees and I just forgot.

A side note about our Christmas decor – since T and I got to start this tradition together and he’s never had a tree prior to the one we got last year, I decided that ALL the ornaments on our tree will come with a story. This was a gift from his Step Mom Mama Judy that she literally took off from her tree, his Aunt Kathy gave us a silver one that read “Our 1st Christmas together”, there were 2 glass baubles we bought together at Cactus Joe’s, and one that T bought as a Christmas gift for me that had our names and said “Just Married”. That’s all we have for now but we’ll grow into our collection…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Cream Aki Goth Mini dress from HELL BUNNY (I got this from Sirens & Starlets)

Accessories: Black & grey mirrored acrylic necklace from THE BLACKGROUND

Footwear: Black gladiator wedges from KENNETH COLE REACTION

IMG_5801This is one of my first 2 HELL BUNNY dresses. I bought this in November 2012 when my friends and I flew to Melbourne, Australia to catch Radiohead. I’m not sure if this is true but it is said that RADIOHEAD will never play in Singapore because there are no human rights protection laws there. So instead of taking the risk of never ever seeing them LIVE, my friends and I decided a group holiday was long overdue anyway. It was super fun! 8 of us in a rental apartment in the heart of Chinatown. Before life got to us (work, marriage, family, children etc), we met every weekend at the same places. You didn’t even have to call. You just turn up and at least a few people from the gang would be at 1 of 2 hangouts. I use the term gang loosely because there are over 20 people in our group, some of whom no longer lived in Singapore – and now there’s me. We are now just a secret Facebook group. I’m glad we’re still connected though.

You know kids, life changes so quickly and even if you don’t think you will, YOU WILL. So enjoy today while being responsible for your tomorrow – you want both financial security and your nest eggs of adventures. You don’t want to be one of those lonely old rich people who are just full of what-ifs and I-should-haves. Money can only buy you that much happiness. There’s no turning back the clocks. Don’t be afraid to live what little you have. I have lots of stupid hijinks stories and crazy travel tales that would fuel my old age because… you know, I was really top notch at making bad decisions and naively fearless of the unknown. Heh heh heh… Ask me and maybe I’ll tell you in private.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Black ruffle “Margot Floral” dress with pink/purple prints from HELL BUNNY (bought at Off Ya Tree)

Accessories: Mint green ombre bead layered necklace from FOREVER21

Outerwear: Silver 3/4 sleeve mini cardigan from DELIA*S

Footwear: Black gladiator wedges from KENNETH COLE REACTION

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?

IMG_5421Another day, another bag! I love this Betsey Johnson bag that I picked up for what I think is a steal at Ross! I love Betsey Johnson’s crazy quirky designs and they go with so many of the things in my wardrobe! Even more, I love shopping at outlets, overstock and clearance stores for off-season clothes and accessories!

Today’s theme is que sera sera. I wanted to wear this Hell Bunny dress but I didn’t want to put on a cardigan because it’s so, uhm everyday. I knew I needed something to cover up while I ride on jam-packed public transport during rush hour (I hate it when people come too close to my bare skin – especially since I’m so short and people tickle or scratch me with their bags, zippers, WET hair etc). Also my brown booties have given up on me after 3 years, so these very comfortable and well-worn sneakers.

TAH DAH! What do you think of this look?

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Mint green LOUISA dress from HELL BUNNY

Outerwear: Blue/red plaid shirt from L.O.G.G. by H&M

Footwear: Dark Pink NIKE FREE HYPER TR sneakers

Another few more outfits before I hit #500! Ryd says I should do something special for it. He suggests wearing something different and taking pictures at the Botanics. But I feel it doesn’t represent this blog. My regular outfit posts are real clothes I wear to work (on most days) and it’s a literally WHAT I’M WEARING TODAY, no deliberate attempts to pretend it’s something it’s not. Also, no photoshop, no professional camera equipment. They’re usually “eh, you free for 3 minutes? Take my outfit photo please?”. I take photos and blog almost exclusively with my iPhone5. Maybe someday I’ll be all posey-posey and style myself in outfits that I’m not actually wearing on the day I take the photos… but not yet. What do you guys think? HEH!

What I’m wearing today:

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

Accessories: Mint green cord necklace from FONDA (at Far East Plaza)

Leggings: Grey pattern stockings from Vivienne Westwood (gift from Pearlyn)

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

And those are Ryd’s Paul Smith kicks. If you like mine, they are retailing in Singapore at the Le Bunny Bleu shop in Bugis+ for SGD83 but ask for the wastedfashion discount and pay only SGD74.70!
