Hey! It’s the last WHAT THE FROCK WEDNESDAY! I’m cheating though. These photos were taken on Monday, 24 December 2012. I’ve taken leave from work to help Luanne and Iman paint their new house, so I won’t be in a dress…

Thanks Sian Eng for taking these photos!!

What I’m wearing today (wore on Monday, I mean):

Dress: Cream Aki Goth Mini dress from HELL BUNNY

Accessories: Pearls and skulls necklace from DIVA ACCESSORIES

Footwear: Black square studs loafers from STEVE MADDEN

I love that this dress has pockets! And oh yeah… Enjoy the sneak peek of my new, incomplete tattoo… This was done in 4hrs – my pain threshold kinda gave way after that. My next session is on 4 Jan 2013.

It’s another WTFW and we are counting down to the last 2 What The Frock Wednesdays! I haven’t repeated a single dress yet. (I have to be honest and say that I’ve probably gotten rid of half the dresses I’ve featured in WTFW since it started and also bought new ones. But hey! We’re all about promoting frivolity and spending the money we deservingly earned, right?)

I absolutely love this dress and it’s my 2nd SOHOMODE dress! (I actually have 1 more that I might wear tomorrow!)

Thank you, Sian Eng for taking these photos!

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Brown polka-dotted 50s-style tea dress from SOHOMODE

Accessories: Black calculator watch from CASIO; White & gold metal/bead vintage necklace from eBay

Footwear: Brown hidden wedge pumps from ZIPIA

It’s the first WTFW for the last month of this year and I haven’t yet repeated any dresses since I started. Another few more to go!

Quick one today. Frivolity is hard. How do people find time to blog?! Even though this takes me only 10 minutes (from photo taking to uploading text), I’m getting a little tired and am finding it a chore. *breathe*

Dress: Custom unicorn print dress from CANDIED STARFISH on etsy

Outerwear: Pink cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: T-Rex fossil necklace from MANNEQUIN PLASTIC; Pink heart ring from SIXX; Black plastic bow ring from DIVA; Ice cream cone ring from INDIESIN

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

WHAT THE FROCK! It’s Wednesday!

I’m wearing one of my current favourite dresses! I wish I could wear it more often. Unfortunately our local public transport is a tight squeeze in the mornings and my big skirt brings out the tsktsk in other commuters. I took the taxi this morning, hence. Maybe I’ll wear it without the underskirt the next time.

This gorgeous dress is from Sohomode and I love the details so much! The big circle skirt, the piping, the velvet strips on the belt, the vintage fabric. I want another 2 more! To be honest though, it’s way more spendy than I usually am. Let’s just say that with the amount I spent on the dress (plus international shipping), I can buy 12 dresses in Singapore. I currently have my eye on THIS and THIS. They’re a little cheaper because they’re ready-to-wear and not custom. What do you think? Diana thinks I should gift them to myself. Heehee… How about throwing a few more “Yay”s in this direction?

Nonetheless, soooo beautiful and I don’t regret it.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Pink floral print custom tea dress from Sohomode

Skirt: Black Meringue petticoat from DOMINO DOLLHOUSE

Footwear: Nude hidden wedge pumps from FROMTHEHEEL on eBay

Accessories: Black “Princess” ring with herkimer diamond from GGORIGINAL on etsy

Thanks for the Stepford wives art direction, Shridar! Unfortunate bad lighting though. Can’t be helped. I look ashen grey. HAHAH!
