An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

Fatshion, Food & Frivolities – Life in Las Vegas & Singapore


Fat-shionista #487


Today was the 2013 Singapore Blog Awards and it was an eye-opener for both myself and Nat Pixiedub. We were completely lost when we got there and didn’t know what to expect. Luckily we had the orientation of a regular at these things, Rynaque, whom I’ve never met till today. She knew who was whom and it was amazing – a whole new world that I never knew existed. I’m going to check out the winning blogs soon. I didn’t know that there are bloggers who get treated like celebrities and are pretty big deals. Pixiedub and I behaved badly throughout the ceremony. We spent a lot of time heckling people and trying to act cute/demure/puke-worthy. But it was quite fun.



So anyway… Though I was one of the 10 finalists for Best Fashion Blog, I didn’t win. I whispered to Rynaque and told her my theory is that because Levi’s was the sponsor and they didn’t carry plus sizes. Heehee… Please read my friend Evelyn’s blog. She was nominated for the Best Family Blog and didn’t win even though I thought she should have!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey tee from US indie band Tennis

Bottom: Black custom tea length tulle skirt from MTcoffinzUnderground on etsy

Accessories: Blue plastic hoop earrings from Nanairo (the $2 shop at Liang Court); Neon pink bow belt from H&M; Black calculator watch from CASIO; Orange hair bow from thestreetsofBangkok (gift from T)

Bag: Purple/white polka dot handmade clutch from Wishful Thinking Studios on etsy (gift from Tamares)

Footwear: Black square stud P. Galia loafers from Steve Madden

As you can see, I completely went against the 60s theme for #omySBA2013 but apparently so did many others who could not tell one vintage from another. Lots of “Staying Alive” and Disco… tsk tsk
