IMG_5428This is basically my go-to travel outfit these days when I want to be girly but not impractically so. The 3/4 leggings are a god-send for walking (chub rub, you know) and I have 4 HELL BUNNY mini dresses that are so easy to just throw on. The funny thing about these leggings is that T loves them. He likes how they’re shiny and he touches them whenever I put them on. Some strange fetish perhaps? MWAHAHAHHA…

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Mint green LOUISA dress from HELL BUNNY

Bottom: Black 3/4 wet look leggings from misss_2007 on eBay

Accessories: Black cable tie necklace from theKANG

Bag: Grey bag with leatherette bow from BERSHKA

Outerwear: Lilac 3/4 sleeve jacket from H&M Divided

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

So what do you normally pack for a roadtrip? Shorts? Jeans? Something sensible and easy to stuff in a bag – uh… Like leggings and a t-shirt?

Something’s wrong with my hair today. It’s especially kinky and wavy.

I’m wearing new lipstick – L’Oreal Color Riche 285 Pink Fever, to match my pink elasticized wrist supports. Too much crocheting. Arthritic hands are angry.

I think toothy grins look better on me. These half-smiles, closed-mouth affairs look more awry than wry or coy.

Today I wore clashing prints and clashing colours (well I personally think green and pink are complementary). Thanks to Wen Rui for taking these photos near our office pantry!! Poor girl got accosted by me out of the blue!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Lime green mod dress from WYATTEDWARDVINTAGE on etsy.com

Accessories: Black cable-tie necklace from theKANG

Footwear: Pink & leopard print creepers/flatforms from FROMTHEHEEL

Oh yes and do you like my new glasses? They’re from New China Opticians (3 Coleman Street #B1-12A Peninsula Excelsior Shopping Centre). I am impressed that it only cost me $120! And even more impressed that they took only 30 minutes to sort me out! This is great because I am one of those rare few who are hyperopic in Singapore.
