Yesterday was cheap pizza Wednesday and I usually go to Glazier’s to get a large Cheese pizza for $5.99 but instead, T and I skipped our routine and had Chicago-style deep-dish at Amore Taste of Chicago (just about 15 minutes drive from where we live). It was delicious and superbly filling!! I’m glad I wore something bulky and baggy… HAHHAHA!!

What I wore yesterday:

Top: Grey superheroes sweatshirt from MARVEL

Accessories: Red & Blue Power Rangers earrings from VICTORIA JOMO at Haji Lane (Singapore); Black flower barrette from ASOS

Bottom: Light blue chambray skater skirt from OLD NAVY

Leggings: Crimson opaque tights from UNIQLO (these are highly recommended! Super smooth and durable too)

Footwear: Black slouchy boots from AMAZON

So after I got dressed, I went up to T’s office (which is on the 3rd floor of our house while our bedroom is on the 1st) and showed him my outfit. I asked him what he thought of it and of course, my husband who tries to always be gentle with me didn’t say anything mean even though I could see in his eyes that he was a little bewildered. He merely said “hmmm… that’s random. Are you selling these clothes?”. HAHAHA!

So I’ve been asked why I’m always so happy in my pictures and I’m glad that people enjoy looking at me being all overtly jubilant because life can suck… You know? And nobody really wants to see a sullen picture of me. Some people have problems with their resting bitch face whereas I have a resting sad face. I actually look like I’m in pain when I’m not smiling. HAHAHA! Also, as I’ve mentioned before, wastedfashion is only a small part of my personal life. There are so many facets to it. (Just so you know, my husband forces me to read The Feeling Good Handbook…)

If there’s a secret or a tip behind taking crazy pictures like mine, it’s to play some music, dance (or sing) to it and take your photos early in the day before anyone can ruin your mood. Heh…

Onward with day uhmm… 4? 5? 6? of the unwashed denim shorts

IMG_5967You would be forgiven for thinking that I must be crazy for wearing a cardigan in the middle of Summer, especially since I live in the desert. Here’s the thing though – it might not look like it, but it’s a really light cardigan worn to the brink of death! It’s pilling and shows its age upclose. I bought this in Singapore and if you can imagine tropical humidity and heat, this cardigan is actually quite breathable. I love it! So glad I brought it here with me when I returned in April to pick up my stuff.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black/White polka dot top from UNIQLO x Lulu Guinness

Outerwear: Black batwing open cardigan from COTTON ON

Accessories: Black pleather belt with silver buckle from H&M; Red jewel flower statement necklace from MYBEAD88 on eBay

Bag: Red leather tote from KATE SPADE

Bottom: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

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

IMG_5609I just realised that I look like the minions from Despicable Me. Mwahahaha… Well *koffkoff* I meant to do that. I take inspiration from everywhere in my styling. *koffkoff* But seriously, follow me on Instagram! I’m a little tardy with writing a full blog post while on Instagram, my outfit photos are almost there daily.

So anyway, I have been looking for inspiration on there and it’s awesome to see what women wear on a daily basis. Some days, I talk to T and ask him random stuff like “how do you think I should wear this pair of harem pants” and he’d frown at me in return. And I’d be like “What? Why are you frowning?”. He’s all smart-alecky and says “Oh I’m kinda stressed out about how you should wear those pants.” ARGH!! Husbands!! So instead of asking him for ideas, I go straight to instagram and see how other people wear it! My userID is wastedfash10n (because apparently wastedfashion is already taken).

IMG_5614What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black/White polka dot top from UNIQLO x Lulu Guinness

Outerwear: Mustard yellow sheer jacket from a nonameshop in Far East Plaza

Accessories: Blue, yellow & black bib style necklace from MYBEAD88 on eBay; Brown cat-eye shades from RAY BAN

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

Bottom: Light blue chambray skirt from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Black gladiator wedges from KENNETH COLE REACTION

IMG_5618I want to rave about this skirt and where I got it from. The waist band is stretchy, it’s chambray (denim’s less heavy sister) and only USD2.49! I got it at the OLD NAVY outlet store in Primm Valley, Nevada. I highly recommend that you make a trip to Primm when you’re visiting Las Vegas. It’s technically not in Las Vegas (about 45min drive away) but it’s called Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas. The town of Primm literally exists just to support the mall, casinos and the shops in that area. The 2 more popular outlet malls that are actually IN LAS VEGAS itself are the Premium Outlet Malls (North and South). There are definitely many more shops in those 2 malls but like their name connotes, it’s PREMIUM aka pricier or at least that’s what I think after shopping in all of them several times.

When you enter Nevada from Southern California, you’ll pass Primm and the outlet mall before you actually get to Las Vegas. I highly recommend that if you’re on holiday in Los Angeles, drive to Las Vegas and spend a few nights here. It’s only 4 1/2hrs to drive and I myself have driven across the desert. So if I can do it, so can you!

Anyway, if you’re in Las Vegas, look me up so we can go shopping together! Mwahahahhaa…

I am going to stop calling myself Plus-Sized here because I feel more of an in-betweenie in the US. In Singapore and the UK, I’m clearly considered PLUS because I’m usually at least a UK16. I go into the local Plus Sized shops here in the US and everything too long and too big. I’m not deluding myself because I’m still fat – I’m definitely not slim or fit. I’m a little chunkier than chubby but maybe just average here (I seem to fit well into a US12). It doesn’t change my style. I still wear whatever I want, regardless of what the labels tell me.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Black/White polka dot top from UNIQLO x Lulu Guinness

Bottom: Black custom tea length tulle skirt from MTcoffinzUnderground on etsy.com

Accessories: Ducks charm bracelet from WOODWOOD; Black flower barrette from Forever21; Black stretchy belt from BCBGMaxAzria

Footwear: Red lacquered platforms from ZARA (Spring 2013)
