My pals Little and his wife Joanne are in town visiting me and this is what I wore to show them around the Las Vegas Strip yesterday – bright and cheery but still sensible for lots of walking! What do you think of my 1st fat-shionista post with the new hair? It’s all shaved and buzzed like a boy’s at the back and I coloured it red myself to save money!

IMG_6454Oh wow! It’s been along time since I last wore this dress. I think it was to my ex-colleague Grace’s wedding… I’m not sure why but I always feel like the frilly nature of the dress itself is too… uhm.. dressy. HAHAHA! And this makes me want to do some 70s disco dancing you know.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Fuchsia strappy hi-lo dress from FOREVER21

Accessories: Gold weave pleather belt from H&M; Natural weave bamboo bangle from THE ISLAND SHOP

Footwear: Black strappy peeptoe heels from KIMCHI BLUE (Urban Outfitters)

Dress: Multi-coloured strapless maxi dress from THE ISLAND SHOP

Accessories: Hot pink baubles statement necklace from FOSSIL; Purple stretchy belt with gold buckle from RIVER ISLAND

IMG_5978I’m not sure what I’m going for but I’m glad I found another way to wear this super cute Marvin Martian crop top from Forever21 and also these bargain basement brandless ikat print harem pants I got from Ross. I have to admit that I researched looks for harem pants, tried it out on myself and failed miserably. Maybe I’m going for the Gwen Stefani in her track pants and bindi phase here. I don’t know! Hahahahaa.

IMG_5965I think by now you’d have figured what’s up. I haven’t changed or washed my shorts. I figured that if you can wear jeans for weeks without washing, denim shorts are essentially the same things except uhm… shorter. Let’s see how long I can go before I gross myself out. HAHAHA!!

Also, denim on denim is usually a no no but I reckon that a printed chambray (which is the lighter cousin of denim) with stars is not the exact same fabric, so it’s okay. What do you think?

IMG_5966What I’m wearing today:

Top: Blue chambray long-seelved blouse with star print from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Rocket Popsicle Brooch from TWINKIE CHAN; Natural bamboo weave bangle from THE ISLAND SHOP; Black pleather belt with silver buckle from H&M

Bag: Grey studs and skulls cross body bag from GORGEOUSLAND on eBay

Bottom: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Black strappy peeptoe heels from KIMCHI BLUE (Urban Outfitters)

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
