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…

How do you store your bags? Hiking backpacks, shopping totes, small irregular-shaped clutches, handbags of every manner… HOW?! I didn’t bring all my bags with me when I moved to Las Vegas. Some were given to friends who really liked them, some went to my sister, some I managed to sell… BUT I still have quite a few that I eventually brought over.

Today I was trying to tidy our tiny walk-in closet to make sure that I know what I have and that they’re still in good condition. So for those with dust bags, they are carefully placed in their respective bags and stacked. The ones without, if I’m able to find a Ziplock big enough, they get zipped up then stacked. The others unfortunately just sit in my empty suitcase forgotten until I have to empty the suitcase for travels. It is not ideal at all…

I thought this would be a great time for me to start documenting the bags in my modest collection because most of my outfit posts do not feature my bags at all. So here goes…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Brown Bird Tea dress from SOHOMODE

Bottom: Peach Meringue petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Accessories: Lilac acrylic statement necklace from TALISMAN’S (at Far East Plaza)

Bag: Black kiss-clasp purse from PAUL FRANK

Footwear: Black wedge pumps from ZIPIA

Absolutely love this old-fashioned purse with a kitsch twist! Bought it off eBay several years ago for a steal! I haven’t been able to find any more 😦 Most of the Paul Frank bags on eBay are knockoffs or overpriced. This is one of those really well-made authentic pieces. I always get asked about it when I bring it out.

Today is another gloomy day, I’m just glad that the rain let up easily and I wasn’t caught in the wetness. Appraisals for me happen in about 4hours. I believe I put in as much as I could’ve last year and I hope it’ll show. Fingers crossed for a good review!

Anyways today I’m wearing a new t-shirt I got at the Tennis show in March! They’re an American indie pop act from Denver and I had so much fun at their show!

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey band tee from TENNIS

Accessories: Bright pink obi bow belt from H&M; Bangle from SONIA RYKIEL POUR H&M; Multi-coloured hairbow (gift from T)

Skirt: Mint Green chiffon skirt and Black MERINGUE petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Footwear: Black square studs P Galia loafers from STEVE MADDEN

I consider today’s outfit a dress-down-day. I’ll be meeting 2 friends from Secondary school for lunch today and thought I should just blend into the crowd especially since I haven’t seen them in years. Wouldn’t want them to feel weird around me, you know? What do you think?

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Rainbow print skater dress from ASOS PETITE

Accessories: Stack of 7 bangles from NEW LOOK; Black pleather weave belt from thestreetsofbangkok

Skirt: Peach meringue petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Footwear: Purple glitter ballerina flats from STEVE MADDEN
