As you would have figured by now (especially if you follow me on Instagram wastedfash10n), I’m kinda not in sync with my outfit posts. It takes me longer to cobble something here and upload. On instagram, everything is done on my phone so it’s easier and more timely while on the blog the details are clearer. Anyway, this was from my 36th birthday on the 13th! It was a nice lazy day. T made me a cake, we watched some TV and went out to eat (still on a budget so I brought along coupons to IHOP hahahaha).

What I’m wearing here:

Dress: Grey polka dotted strapless dress from H&M (this is a recent purchase so I’m sure it’s still in stores)

Outerwear: Blue/Red plaid shirt from L.O.G.G. H&M

Accessories: Black scarf with white stars from ACCESSORIZE; Brown cat-eye sunglasses from RAYBAN

Footwear: Blue rubber flipflops from OLD NAVY



My Stuff: Sunnies


Sunglasses, sunnies, shades, dark glasses or whatever you fancy… I live on a tropical island and it’s practically summer all year round, so I have the perfect excuse owning so many pairs! Up till now, I only have the super cute but el-cheapo ones that I buy on sale. They’re cute and I was frankly, really happy with them… that is, until I found out the importance of good ones! (Read: HowStuffWorks “Cheap vs Expensive Sunglasses”) Cheap sunnies may look identical to pricier ones, but you are most likely foregoing the benefits of shading your eyes and in the long-run, hurting yourself. Unless your goal is merely to accessorize, then erm… well I guess go ahead and amass a large number of funky and inexpensive ones to match your wardrobe. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! The difference might just save your sight! And you know, vision problems in aging adults are on the rise, so why add to these issues?

With all that said, I have learnt the errors of my ways and I am repentant! Presenting… style and function… TAH DAH! MY NEW SUNNIES from Ray Ban! They look great on and are a brand I can definitely trust!

I’d like to thank SmartBuyGlasses for this fab pair of sunglasses! I love how the shape of the frames is so flattering and it sits right on my East Asian face. The brown tint of the lenses are just right – not too dark and I can still see clearly when I go underground, so I don’t have to remove them, walk through the tunnel, and put them back on again when it’s bright out. As you can see, they also included a lens cleaning kit – with a lint-free cloth for cleaning, some cleaning fluid and a screwdriver (how handy is that!?). It came really well-packaged, within the mailing envelope, there was a white box and bubble wrap, then the original Ray Ban packaging (and authentication tags). The order was put in on 12 September and I received it on 1 October! In that time, SmartBuyGlasses sent me no less than 4 emails to keep me notified about the order and I actually could keep track of where it was!
