Archive for category what i wore wednesday
I have been wanting to experiment wearing prints on prints but it just isn’t that easy to try to match them so that I don’t end up looking like I am in a costume and all ready to keep the kids entertain in a party.
Guess the easiest way out has just got to be sticking with the safest colors in the wardrobe, BLACK and WHITE.
The first layer is a polka dots tube and a pencil skirt with diagonal stripes texture.
It isn’t very obvious in real life but you can see it quite clearly in the picture above.
And threw on a nautical striped jacket and it doesn’t seem quite that bad after all.
At least I felt I could head to work in these. :-p
My work place is filled with people who are so fun and enthusiastic. 🙂
It was planned that we would go into the office in our outfits of reds and whites and have a team lunch gathering over high raved nyonya food.
The food was delicious! I had to stop myself from taking the third serving!
Singapore has developed and progressed so much in these 47 years and I wish for prosperity and growth for Singapore in many more years to come!
I love Singapore for its stability, security and efficiency. Many a times we take these for granted but will come to better appreciate them when we step out of the country.
Anyway back to my outfit, I wore a crochet sweater over a red dress, which I wore last Christmas. (as below)
And added a red skinny belt to give the top some definition else I would look like an overaged student heading to the library.
Wearing the crochet sweater proved to be quite a challenge ,even when it made of cotton and acrylic blend & sleeves rolled up, in the humidity of Singapore’s summer.
And on National Day itself, I headed to Ikoi for dinner after watching the National Day Parade on tv. I will be posting about the dinner in the next post.
With the ridiculous rumors spreading like wild fire about the demise of Mr Lee KY, although I doubt the creditability of the rumor, it was still certainly a relief to be able to see him attend the National Day Parade.
I was in the mood for another day of red and white!
Top & Skirt: Cotton On, Wedges: Heatwave, Bag: Alexander Wang
My nails were not spared too…. 🙂
I promise I will update at shorter intervals between posts!
Hope you’ve had a great National Day holiday! 🙂
It’s my outfit post again! And I promise the next post is not going to be my outfit post.
I must admit though that it is so much easier to do an outfit post as opposed to a travel or dining post. :-p
I love polka dots as they make an outfit a little more fun and a little more interesting. What more a dress with haphazard dots in two colours!
Love this dress as it is thick enough to weigh the dress down to give it enough form and it just makes me a happy girl wearing it.
Not forgetting the vintage vibes it gives. 🙂
Bag: Samantha Thavasa
I can never resist anything with the Ribbon Bow, much less a garment with three bows.
Plus it is in a flattering dusty pink shade.
This jacket makes me feel just a little more demure whenever I wear it.
I think it affects me in little ways like how talk & walk. :-p
Pleated Wool Skirt: Beijing, Tank top: Cotton On, Jacket: OL Affair
Half way through the day, I realised that my outfit could pass off as an elevator girl’s uniform in the prim and proper sense.
Heels: Elisa Litz, Bag: Longchamp
Thanks for dropping by!
It is another tribal inspired outfit and this was taken before my vacation in Vietnam too. Pardon how slow I am to update my blog!
I must get down to updating my blog proper soon else things life just moves on and I just feel too lazy to blog about them.
Anyway back to my outfit, this accordion pleated skirt was a gift from Beebops when he went to Thailand with the boys and it was worn by the villagers in Chiang Mai.
I love the skirt’s bright designs all around.
As I wore this outfit to work, I kept the rest of the outfit black and simple and threw on a black blazer in an attempt to make it look less casual.
Blazer: Zara, Tube Top: Victoria Secrets
Thanks for dropping by! I promise to update my travelogues soon!
