About 2 months ago, I saw this post by Jolene of Boardroom Blonde and remembered that I too owned that very same dress. I wasn’t expecting to buy anything that fateful day last December when my family were here visiting but the Las Vegas Premium Outlets do have very attractive prices and this Kate Spade dress was a little more than USD40 after multiple discounts (that’s including taxes!) And if you haven’t realised by now, I’m still trying to stretch my wardrobe instead of succumbing to getting an entirely new one with my maternity needs. This is a regular-sized dress. Very flattering cut. Stretchy and swingy. The elasticised waist is perfect right now! The orange chevron stripes – so cheery and Spring!IMG_1480

What I’m wearing:

Dress: Orange chevron striped dress from KATE SPADE

Accessories: Orange/Pink/White flower brooch from FOREVER21

Footwear: Red strappy platform sandals from ZARA WOMAN

This is what I wore today running errands. I went to the Post Office again because I’ve been mailing out packages. Other than doing house things as housewifey as I get, I also help out with some of the more boring parts of T’s business – filing receipts, taking care of his stock of merchandise and mailing stuff out. His game Axiom Verge has a playable demo in North American retailers now. Go check out a Sony Playstation kiosk in a store – Best Buy, Target, Game Stop etc. Support indie developers! Buy a t-shirt or some buttons HERE.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Silver sleeveless top from Apt. 9

Accessories: Red jewel flower statement necklace from MYBEAD88 on eBay

Bottom: Black swing mini skirt with waist-band details from FOREVER21

Footwear: Red strappy platform sandals from ZARA WOMAN

So we went to watch Guardians of the Galaxy the other day and this is what I wore. It’s been pretty hot lately and even when the sun sets, it’s well over 40 Degree Celsius. No need for a cardigan or cover-up of any kind.

What I’m wearing:

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

Bag: Purple polka-dotted clutch from WISHFUL THINKING on etsy.com

Footwear: Red lacquer platform sandals from ZARA WOMEN

We’re roadtripping again! T and I are driving to LA today! That’s Los Angeles, not Louisiana. He’s showcasing Axiom Verge at E3 and I get to hang out with my pals! The event is a 3-day affair but he has business to attend to so we’re in LA earlier. This was supposed to be a much longer trip with us going to England for a wedding after E3 ends next Thursday but you know, life throws curveballs at us every so often and it’s no longer feasible for us to do that… Ah well…

Anyway, it’s so awesomely awesome that we found a doggy sitter for Max through dogvacay.com – when we were in LA with him the last time we stayed in a doggie-friendly hotel and brought him to a nice lady on dogvacay.com who took care of him in the day while we were out. Since this is a work trip and T has been provided with accommodation near the conference venue, we decided that Max should stay in Las Vegas with someone. We set up a play date earlier and he got along really well with the dog sitter’s Black Lab – same breed!

So anyway, I’ve packed with me 4 HELL BUNNY dresses and 2 t-shirts for this trip. If I’m not wearing any of those dresses, it’ll be this pair of denim shorts. Perfect for summer!

And this post was inspired by Curves and Chaos writing about a bohemian-inspired outfit. It is rather different from what I usually wear but it’s also not everyday that I go on a roadtrip! If you’re going to be driving for hours, you should always dress comfortably right?

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Red butterfly-sleeved top with white embroidery from FOREVER21 PLUS

Bottoms: Light blue cuffed denim shorts from OLD NAVY

Accessories: Red & Blue geometric dangling earrings from FOREVER21; Set of 7 black bangles from NEW LOOK

Footwear: Red lacquer platform sandals from ZARA WOMEN

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)

I’m wearing something I just wore recently (omg *gasp*). It’s really versatile and I really do love how it fits. Also, it has POCKETS! A tunic top/dress thing with pockets! As you can see, I didn’t bother ironing it after I got it off the line. It’s not doing too badly in my opinion. Also, I’ve been trying to find a way to feature this belt that my pal Ryddy gave me a few weeks back. It’s really cute and I love the buckle – the white leather skinny belt made it that little bit difficult though. I don’t like white in general so I didn’t have a clue how to wear this one. I hope it works though!

This MS. READ round-neck, long tabbed-sleeved tunic retails for SGD89 (only SGD69 if you flash the special wastedfashion SGD20 off flyer (when making purchase) from now till 31 July 2013.

What I’m wearing today:

Accessories: Black calculator watch from CASIO; White skinny belt with Red lips buckle from ZARA; Black hairbow with paint splatter prints from thestreetsofbangkok

Leggings: Black tights with blue/pink hearts from TOPSHOP

Footwear: Pink sparkly ALL STAR stretch lace shoes from CONVERSE
