This is what I wore today running errands. I went to the Post Office again because I’ve been mailing out packages. Other than doing house things as housewifey as I get, I also help out with some of the more boring parts of T’s business – filing receipts, taking care of his stock of merchandise and mailing stuff out. His game Axiom Verge has a playable demo in North American retailers now. Go check out a Sony Playstation kiosk in a store – Best Buy, Target, Game Stop etc. Support indie developers! Buy a t-shirt or some buttons HERE.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Silver sleeveless top from Apt. 9

Accessories: Red jewel flower statement necklace from MYBEAD88 on eBay

Bottom: Black swing mini skirt with waist-band details from FOREVER21

Footwear: Red strappy platform sandals from ZARA WOMAN

IMG_7631Today’s post is inspired by @blackdotred on instagram (follow me too! I’m @wastedfash10n). Her outfit posts always include a high collared top and a statement necklace. So here’s my take on her style…

IMG_5967You would be forgiven for thinking that I must be crazy for wearing a cardigan in the middle of Summer, especially since I live in the desert. Here’s the thing though – it might not look like it, but it’s a really light cardigan worn to the brink of death! It’s pilling and shows its age upclose. I bought this in Singapore and if you can imagine tropical humidity and heat, this cardigan is actually quite breathable. I love it! So glad I brought it here with me when I returned in April to pick up my stuff.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black/White polka dot top from UNIQLO x Lulu Guinness

Outerwear: Black batwing open cardigan from COTTON ON

Accessories: Black pleather belt with silver buckle from H&M; Red jewel flower statement necklace from MYBEAD88 on eBay

Bag: Red leather tote from KATE SPADE

Bottom: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Black strappy peeptoe heels from KIMCHI BLUE (Urban Outfitters)

IMG_5980A few weeks ago, my friend Evelyn of The Bottomsup Blog asked over Facebook chat if I spend time planning my outfits or I naturally just know what goes with what. I don’t. I don’t really spend time picking things out and neither do I know what to wear. Sometimes I throw it together and it doesn’t look as I imagined but I just deal with it. Today’s outfit is somewhat like that.  I’ll change out of something if I’m uncomfortable though. Other than that, it doesn’t bother me and that’s my style philosophy if one can call it that.

I wore this to get ice cream with T. We have a Cold Stone Creamery about a 10-minute drive from us and it’s in the same plaza as the supermarket I usually go to and it also excites me to say that it houses a 24hr Subway (though T was commenting about the dubious freshness of their bread at 3am).

IMG_5981What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black tee from Singapore Thrash-metal band Ossuary

Accessories: Blue, yellow & black bib style necklace from MYBEAD88 on eBay; Brown cat-eye shades from RAY BAN; Black pleather belt with silver buckle from H&M

Bag: Grey studs and skulls cross body bag from GORGEOUSLAND on eBay

Bottoms: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Black gladiator wedges from KENNETH COLE REACTION

IMG_5645What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Blue spotty sweetheart neckline frock from H&M

Accessories: Red jewel flower statement necklace from MYBEAD88 on eBay

Bag: Red leather tote from KATE SPADE

Bottom: Black meringue petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Footwear: Black wedge heels from ZIPIA

My pal Ryddy gifted me this dress from England and he likes women to dress with a more feminine style. So the key thing to making this dress work for me was the petticoat. I don’t have nice curvy hips (or any hips at all) so I wouldn’t be able to take advantage of the fact that this dress had a big circle skirt. This is what I call the inverted cupcake look – the frosting at the bottom, see? I would love to dress like a cupcake all the time…
