This wasn’t the outfit I envisioned when I decided on what to wear today. I first put on a bright pink leopard print polyester top from RIVER ISLAND and decided that they didn’t go with my F21 leggings (VPL and all that). Also, I came to work without the long cardigan. It just got cold in the office and I had it hugging the back of my seat. Today, I also have a new photographer. I say thanks to Stephanie from Corp Comms… my colleagues are awesome.

I ended up buying only the Coral Lace Tunic Top/Dress from Dorothy Perkins (Marina Square) because even at the discounted rate, it was still S$39 a piece.

Way out of my budget even though I like the lace/frill thing going. I ended up not buying anything from MISS SELFRIDGE. BUT… I bought a new camera from CATHAY PHOTO! The Canon S90! I’ll do a video post about it tomorrow.

Making a regular band t-shirt fit a stubby frame

Making a regular band t-shirt fit a stubby frame

This is my friend Wasya’s husband Ben (Wasya’s the shadow on the right taking the picture). We were at Lulworth Cove in Dorset earlier this year to check out the Jurassic Coast. I wore my favourite ballet flats and trudged up and down the rocks! Jones Bootmaker makes great shoes! I only wear band t-shirts (I made up that rule myself ok!) and this was given to me by an Indonesian outfit called Elemental Gaze. To make the t-shirt fit me better, I widened the neckline, trimmed off the sleeves and shortened the length by snipping about an inch off the hem. I do that with a lot of my t-shirts. It’s easy and it fits better!!!

What I’m wearing:

Top: Band t-shirt from Elemental Gaze

Belt: A US$2 thing my sister got from an outlet near her place in New Hampshire

Bag: Clamshell kiss-lock pink synthetic leather purse from Miss Selfridge

Bottoms: Dark blue jeans from Dorothy Perkins

Shoes: Taupe ballet flats from Jones Bootmaker
