Anna

Sunglasses: Beverly Feldman (Similar here) | Necklace: Gift (Same here)
Dress: Smooch the Label

Shoes: New Look (Similar here)

Bag: Gracious Aires

Love the little bow details on the back!!


When I visited my aunty B in Santa Barbara, she gave me this necklace and said it was inspired by the necklace from the epically romantic Tolstoy novel Anna Karenina. I've been hoping to wear it for some time now but I just couldn't find the right outfit for it but when this Smooch dress came on sale, I was all 'hell yeah bomb diggity'. Yeah, I'm definitely no epic novelist.
I should probably read the book and take in the great romance of "the greatest book ever written" so that I can walk around being all smug like, 'I read and wear necklaces and therefore I win at life'. Or I could just watch the movie.

I'd like to leave you with a quote from the book and marvel at how ironic it is because I seriously was waiting for the entire 'perfect' look to go with this necklace.

“If you look for perfection, you'll never be content.”

Read my lipstick

I enjoy the occasional dark lippie so I tried to match the lipstick print burgundy skirt with my Mac lipstick "Hang Up" which was great for about an hour after which I had breakfast and drank coffee and it was all over my food, cup and face. Honestly, you just can't take me anywhere.

I read somewhere that the average lipstick wearer eats roughly 1.7 kilograms of lipstick in her (or his - hello trans folk!) lifetime. That seems like a decent amount but I'm pretty sure my average would be less because it mostly ends up in my hair. Wind is not my friend.

So two takeaways of today's post:
1. Mac lipstick 'Hang Up' is very nice.
2. Omnomnomnom lipstick is food.

The local tourist

Shirt: Controlled Commodity
Pants: Uniqlo (Similar here)
Shoes: Converse
Bracelet: Quintessential (Similar-ish here)
Bag: Marni (Similar here) | Ring: Mango (Similar here)
Hat: Nasty Gal 

Being a snobby snob face, I tend to have some elitist beliefs about the things we can find in Singapore, versus the things from overseas. For example, I think that Kit Kat from the UK > Kit Kat found in Singapore (I think it's made in Malaysia and before you get all what-a-bitch-she's-an-anti-Malaysia-and-Malaysians-butthole, please note that my father is Malaysian so let's not get so hyped up. Sheesh, you need to eat less chocolate).

However, I am not turning my nose up at this new local brand - Controlled Commodity makes understated shirts for men and women, and while my style is normally more akin to that of a mental patient, I was impressed with how well tailored the shirts are, and how flattering they are for a shorty like myself. So yeah, if you like well made shirts that aren't the usual run of the mill design (who wouldn't???), I'd definitely recommend you check them out.

How do you make it Eiffely?

Earrings: Gift from Wens (Similar here)

Because of a conversation I had with the mouse squad, and also because they are a super cute gift from my god-sis, I decided to wear these little Eiffel Tower earrings.

The mouse squad wasn't talking about the historic landmark of Paris so much as we were discussing puppetry of the peen. Yup. CC suddenly texted to say that she had just learned of the most unique hens night performers in the history of the universe. Forget strippers dressed as cops or firemen, these performers charge $900 for a half hour for a performance which could include making the Eiffel Tower (and other such landmarks I presume) using their dingdongs. I don't know if that's really worth 900 bucks but you gotta admit that it is intriguing.

Anyway, not that I want to be wearing a man's downstairs department on my ears, just thought it was a funny coincidence. Thanks for reading!

Non-pervert flashing

One more embarrassing story to add to my ever increasing repertoire.

I was walking down a flight of stairs at Chinatown Point, my foot slipped and I fell down the stairs just as three women were coming towards the staircase in my direction. All three swooped in to my rescue like Charlie's Angels, and with the appropriate 'oh no's' and 'aaahhhs', they asked me if I was okay. In my embarrassment, the first thing I blurted out was 'oh no! I'm so sorry I totally flashed my panties at you!'

While they were more concerned with helping me up and ensuring I hadn't broken anything, I was really flustered and kept saying sorry for flashing them and telling them how embarrassed that made me.


Anyway, if I hadn't been so busy apologising for being panties-ahoy, I would have thanked the angels more for their help. They were all so caring and reassuring and it made me feel a lot less embarrassed. So whoever you three are, thank you for picking me up and lying that you didn't see my nethers because I know you totally did.

Thanks for reading, and if you're wondering, I am okay except for a bruise on my butt and some embarrassment because I can wear some awesome strappy heels but I guess I can't walk in them.

Bag: ASOS
Ring: Gift from Wens (Similar here) | Shoes: Le Bunny Bleu
I've been waiting for an occasion to bust out this cute cloud clutch from ASOS and I think it nicely compliments my rainbow striped dress because rainbows and clouds always go together cutely. Proof:
Buay tahan so cutesy. Pic from here
Too. Much. Cute. 

And what better way to show my joy that the weekend approacheth (I'm doing Shakespeare now) than to wear happy bright colours and hold a whimsical clutch.

However, as a crazy hoarder of junk, I like to be able to carry at least my bathroom sink in my bag and the downside of this clutch is that it only has the capacity to carry some cash and a phone. I'm not sure if the makers were expecting me to carry the rest of my stuff on my head.
I'm just not that talented. Pic from here
Anyway, thanks for reading! Have a super rainbow-bright-balancey-on-head weekend!

My goodness this is a matchymatchy outfit. It actually wasn't so matchy in real life but in photos I look like I am obsessed with blue and orange and if I don't wear ALL the blue and orange in the world, a great plague will come and wipe us all out and the earth will be filled with zombies eating brains and drooling, and bugs will be the size of cars and we'll all be pretty much screwed.

Hmmm. What is my point? Oh I didn't have one.
