IMG_5652Have you noticed the trend in my last few posts? Bare legs and casual. Yeah, it’s a summer thing… And just because I’m in shorts and a t-shirt all the time, I feel like that doesn’t mean I need to look like a slob. These OLD NAVY shorts are going to be worn to death this Summer but I’m going to style them differently each time! Anyway, Las Vegas has been so crazy hot lately! T says that it’ll just be for another 8 weeks or so and things will get a lot better. I can’t wait for cardigan weather again! I love layering!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black toe band t-shirt

Accessories: Brown faux leather belt from STEVE MADDEN

Bottom: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Bag: Blue ostrich skin tote from MARC BY MARC JACOBS

Footwear: Beige heeled brogues from eBay

I realise I wear a lot of band t-shirts. But you know what. I think I ONLY own band t-shirts! And I have tons of them!

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

My gel nails (purple with gold french tip) was done in Hong Kong at Lisa Nail in Sheung Wan where my cousin Dawn lives.

Hello! September has ended and I have no more excuses. I’ve woken up. Have to stop binge eating too. The next few weeks are going to be busy non-stop but I’ve already scheduled several posts that I have pre-written, so there’s still going to be new stuff every week.

My friend Sian Eng is really fast with the pictures and we took these photos really quickly. Enjoy!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Skulls and cupcake print tank top from Blue Magik on eBay

Accessories: Purple stretch belt (free with a DOROTHY PERKINS dress); Silver SEAMASTER watch from OMEGA; Sapphire & diamond white gold pendent (birthday present from my mum); Silver metal spikes ring from MARC BY MARC JACOBS (thanks Pearlyn); Black finish PRINCESS ring with Herkimer Diamond from GGORIGINAL on etsy

Bottom: Peach meringue petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE; Mint green chiffon full skirt from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Footwear: Black ballet flats from AMERICAYA

As you can see, my arthritic joints are not slowing down in its decay. And today is a good day, imagine when I have inflammations, they are uglier.

Hey! It’s another WTFW! And I feel like I’ve had a good break. I’ve been on leave since last Thursday and I haven’t been back at the office for 6 whole days! I’ve spent the days crocheting, cleaning, doing laundry and general maintenance (nails, hair, facial, dental etc). What have you been doing?

I love this cupcake print dress. This is another one of those dresses I made before my shopping ban. I actually have another 3 more not worn yet!

Thanks Pearlyn for the awesome gifts from New York and this beautiful ring I’m wearing! Also taking these photos!!!
