Hello I’m back and have you heard? I’ve been nominated for the Singapore Blog Awards 2013! I’m one of the top 10 finalists for the Levi’s Best Fashion Blog so please vote for me! Online voting constitutes 30% of the score. And you can vote once a day, everyday until 23 June 2013! I dedicate this to all the fat girls who make things happen for themselves. Style comes in size fat and you better believe it!

Today, I’m wearing a dress that I think I’ll wear very often from now onwards. I can’t believe I took so long with this one. Totally in love with this ASOS Midi Dress (yes, I realise it’s a maxi on me). The jersey fabric is super soft and I can see myself sleeping in it. Unfortunately though, I’m so short (1.53m) that the dress is a tad too long (Ryd says I look like a pilgrim) and the sleeves need to be folded so that my hands can move. I bought it in a UK16 and it’s less than SGD30! SCORE! With ASOS’s free shipping too! w00t!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Grey Midi Dress with long sleeves from ASOS

Accessories: Red plastic pencil sharpener earrings and Multi-coloured long airplane necklace from Bitsch Kitsch; Fuchsia bangle from Sonia Rykiel pour H&M

Footwear: Brown distressed faux leather booties from RUBI SHOES

This is my favourite HELL BUNNY dress of the moment! If you want to buy me a gift for Christmas, I still love skulls & crossbones motifs but I also like pastel florals now. And if you can afford to get me a HELL BUNNY dress, I’m a UK16. Please get something with a smocked, stretchy back, no halter-necks and nothing too long. Hahahha!!! *shameless* No harm asking right?

I’m not sure what today’s theme for WHAT THE FROCK WEDNESDAY is but I like the colour scheme as well as how comfortable everything is. (Unlike the cupcake dress I wore on Monday, this HELL BUNNY dress has an elastic back – yay for stretch!!)

I think I’m going to milk this look in 2013 (with the occasional band t-shirt) till I get sick of it. Oh gosh! I love the Hell Bunny dresses!

Oh and this is a new cardigan I picked up from the M&S sale earlier. Only $20, I think. Adding to my collection of cardigans… heh…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Mint green “LOUISA” floral cherry rockabilly dress from HELL BUNNY

Outerwear: Lilac cropped 3/4 sleeve cardigan from M&S WOMAN

Skirt: Peach “MERINGUE” petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Accessories: Stack of 7 black/bronze/silver bangles from NEW LOOK; Black faux leather cuff bracelet from YOYOSTORE2010 on eBay; Silver cupcake & bow necklace from SEW OENO on etsy

Footwear: Black crochet socks and Brown distressed leather boots from RUBI SHOES

Hey hey it’s WHAT THE FROCK WEDNESDAY and my first day back at work. I miss Melbourne and hanging out with my inner circle but I’m happy to be back in my office socializing with my pals!

I even had a yummy chicken ramen lunch at Tori King with XH and Pearlyn! I miss our lunch chats and epicurean journeys during the work day. Today we travelled to Tanjong Pagar!

Here’s a new dress and I really love it! Got it from OFF YA TREE in Melbourne. I love that shop! The guys in there are pretty chill & easy. Bought 2 dresses from the one on Elizabeth Street. I love HELL BUNNY dresses more than ever now!

What do you think of my Pudgy-overaged-Harajuku-Taylor-Swift-getup? MWAHAHAHAHA!!! I can’t stop laughing as I type this.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Black ruffle “Margot Floral” dress with pink/purple prints from HELL BUNNY

Outerwear: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: Floral shabby chic necklace from ACCESSORIZE

Tights: Hot Pink semi-sheer stockings from idon’tknow

Footwear: Brown distressed leather booties from RUBI SHOES

I love these 3/4 leggings! I can practically live in them. Today’s shoes makes me look taller and people think I’ve lost weight. Yay for FLATforms and creepers!

Today’s WTFW really is pulled together because I love the cupcake print of my new ASOS blouse. I don’t think it works though. How would you wear it? It looks quite ill-fitting and shapeless on me, no? I bought it in a UK16 and that’s my usual size. The purple tank dress is something I wear often for layering. I’ve worn it so many different ways! I love how it’s so versatile! It’s definitely one of those travelling must-brings!

Thanks Wen Rui for the snaps!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Purple tank dress from TOPSHOP

Top: Cupcake print peplum blouse from ASOS

Accessories: Fat necklace from Fancy Lady Industries; Lightning bolt necklace from WICKED LAUNDRY (Haji Lane); Black noose string earrings from ISLAND SHOP

Leggings: Black crochet lace tights from DOROTHY PERKINS

Footwear: Brown distressed leather boots from RUBI SHOES
