Fat-shionista #571

My pals Little and his wife Joanne are in town visiting me and this is what I wore to show them around the Las Vegas Strip yesterday – bright and cheery but still sensible for lots of walking! What do you think of my 1st fat-shionista post with the new hair? It’s all shaved and buzzed like a boy’s at the back and I coloured it red myself to save money!

I like colours and I love them clashing or bold. Sometimes though, I like them matchy-matchy. I love that pinks and purples work for my skin tone (whatever that means LOL).

This is what I wore to go to Walgreens to collect my prescription and uhm.. buy toilet bowl cleaner from the 99c Only Store on Blue Diamond. So exciting, right? Hahahahaa…

As you can tell, this is statement necklace is my Accessory Du Jour. It’s just so fun and easy to throw on almost everything I own. I got it at the FOSSIL outlet store at Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas in Primm Valley for only USD15 last year!

As you can tell, I love bright colours. I am making up for lost time since I spent most of my 20s in dark coloured clothes (and vertical stripes). Given that I spent 5 years as a school teacher, I felt like it was part of the job description that I dress more “sensibly” and less “flashy”. Needless to say, I wasted my youth pretending to be an old lady.

I’m going to be 40 in 4 years and even if age is just a number, damn Mother Nature and gravity doesn’t know that. I fear the day when I get too saggy to enjoy myself anymore… HAHHAHAHA!!! So the time is NOW! People, hear me. THE TIME IS NOW! Regardless of your insecurities. It WILL eventually go downhill and you don’t want to wait for that day to come before regretting everything you didn’t do.

IMG_5647I’m looking at these pictures and I think about how I’ll be turning 36 in exactly 2 months to the day. When I was a teenager, I thought that 30-somethings had to have permed hair and wear blue eyeshadow AND red lipstick. My life is nowhere near what I imagined it would be. 36, jobless and childless. But it’s not a bad life at all. I’m thankful for all that I have and all that I’ve become. I just never thought I’d be wearing a bold pineapple print skirt at my age. What did I know?!

I love my Pineapple skirt. I love food-themed clothes and accessories. I love food. PERIOD.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Purple striped tank top from NEW LOOK

Outerwear: Mustard yellow sheer jacket from a nonameshop in Far East Plaza

Accessories: Colourful shards necklace from LOUCHE ACCESSORIES (JOY store in London)

Bag: Black & white patent leather dog cross body bag from EASYTRADE2099 on eBay

Bottom: Pineapple print pencil skirt from H&M DIVIDED

Footwear: Dark Purple sueded platform wedge pumps with bow from HAILEY JEANS CO (on AMAZON)

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?
