IMG_5803That’s a Christmas ornament I haven’t put away yet. In my defence, I’ve tidied up the rest of the garage and stored all our other holiday decorations in a nice big box. This glittery silver star was on the sideboard in our bedroom next to my accessories trees and I just forgot.

A side note about our Christmas decor – since T and I got to start this tradition together and he’s never had a tree prior to the one we got last year, I decided that ALL the ornaments on our tree will come with a story. This was a gift from his Step Mom Mama Judy that she literally took off from her tree, his Aunt Kathy gave us a silver one that read “Our 1st Christmas together”, there were 2 glass baubles we bought together at Cactus Joe’s, and one that T bought as a Christmas gift for me that had our names and said “Just Married”. That’s all we have for now but we’ll grow into our collection…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Cream Aki Goth Mini dress from HELL BUNNY (I got this from Sirens & Starlets)

Accessories: Black & grey mirrored acrylic necklace from THE BLACKGROUND

Footwear: Black gladiator wedges from KENNETH COLE REACTION

This is the perfect example of how accessorizing actually takes a very plain outfit from uh..it’s okay to hey put together! It’s a simple roundneck  t-shirt dress with sleeves and nothing more. You throw it on, put on a pair of rubber slippers or flipflops, and you deal with it. OR you could put on a statement necklace and a bangle to add details.

My main problem is that if I wear it plain, you can see very obviously that I have no hips. I am quite apple-shaped and the roundness of my belly stands out. I could put on some shapewear to conceal it or I could have some fun with accessorizing. So that’s that.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Red t-shirt dress from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Black & grey mirrored acrylic necklace from THE BLACKGROUNDBlack bow ring from ACCESSORIZE; Natural bamboo weave bangle from THE ISLAND SHOP

Bag: Grey bag with leatherette bow from BERSHKA

Footwear: Black gladiator wedges from KENNETH COLE REACTION

It’s Friday! The weeks are just zooming by so quickly! Where did the time go?? I know what I’m doing with my time today though! I’ve taken half the day off to hang out with my gal pals aka The SPArty Girls! We’re going to HOUSE @ Dempsey for their Vintage High Tea. I read a bunch of reviews and blog posts… TOTALLY SOLD! See here, here and here. I hope we have a lovely time later today. I might share some pictures in my next post… if I remember. There’s a possibility that I would get so distracted and greedy that I’ll totally forget to document the afternoon!

In other news, I am looking to revamp my blog after using free WordPress templates since Day 1. I have some ideas of what I want to have on it and the ideal layout but T hasn’t been able to get that going even though he tried. I’ve looked at some premade templates on Etsy that I liked but weren’t exactly what I have in mind. Also, many of the premade templates don’t work with my free wordpress account and I have to get a self-hosted one or works only on blogspot. I want a 3 column layout (2 sidebars) with a customized photo header that changes, and a clickable custom image link menu under that. Any ideas or suggestions? Some examples of what I like are THIS, THIS, THIS and THIS.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black bra tank top from UNIQLO

Bottom: Mint swing skirt and Peach Meringue petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Accessories: Stack of 4 plastic bangles from PRIMARK; Purple stretch belt (free with DOROTHY PERKINS dress); Orange polka-dotted hair bow from thestreetsofbangkok; Black & grey mirrored acrylic necklace from THE BLACKGROUND (at Far East Plaza)

Footwear: Brown Kandy Oxfords from Le Bunny Bleu (at Bugis+)

How cute are my shoes???!! I love love love them so much! Comfort and chic are the most important thing especially if you’re gonna be on your feet all day! There were 3 different colour combinations and I couldn’t decide which one so I picked the one I felt I could match with the most number of outfits. I wish I had them all! In fact, I want all the Le Bunny Bleu shoes I saw!! These KANDY OXFORDS are currently retailing for SGD83 but ask for the wastedfashion discount and pay only SGD74.70!
