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

Hello! I’m blogging from Melbourne, Australia! Yoohoooo! (Have iPhone & Internet access will travel)

I arrived yesterday morning and there are 8 of us sharing a 2 bedroom service apartment in the heart of Chinatown. Great location, super clean, safe and awesome facilities. A little stretched for space (only 1 bathroom) because there are so many of us but it has been really fun! I highly recommend The Paramount Apartment on Exhibition Street. It’s a bit pricey – over AUD3000 for 7 days but well worth what we paid since there are 8 of us sharing. I’d gladly pay another AUD20 more a day!

So it’s another WHAT THE FROCK WEDNESDAY! It’s been nice and cold so I needed to bundle up. Dresses that I own are normally for tropical Singapore weather so this is a little hard to do but I’m doing ok so far.

What I’m wearing today:

Dress: Purple & Yellow ric-rac dress from Ms. Tips on etsy

Inner wear: Black long sleeved heat tech v-neck top from Uniqlo

Accessories: Paperplane brooch from Macaroon at Far East Plaza

Leggings: Black opaque stockings from Dorothy Perkins

Outerwear: Black bomber jacket from Ted Baker

Footwear: Dracula vs Frankenstein Mary Janes from Em & Sprout on etsy

Thanks little Nat for taking these pictures on the balcony of our service apartment!
