The Bittersweet Science

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Wore this for some last minute visiting plus a couple of interview sessions last Wednesday. I love those Bottegas that I got from my US trip last year but it's a bitch to wear out seriously. If you look closely there's a knot (caused by all the leather cords) in the middle of the shoe which rests right on top of my foot and the knots press on to the top of my feet so it's super painful after a couple of hours in those. I wore them for 8 hours straight when I brought them out for the first time, I almost died. So pretty but such a pity.

The watch was a birthday gift from Pia. I love everything about it except for the straps, need to go change it soon.

Another dress for the second day of CNY and it's my first buy from a blogshop (after so many years). I don't really fancy apparels from any online shops other than TheScarletRoom, Lucyd Acyd (now Feist Heist) and Schwing Schwing (almost defunct already), cause they are either too frilly/girly or too hippie/punk. So this mod-esque dress caught my eye after hours of (desperately) scouring the web cause of its colour and simplicity. Got it at the very last minute and collected it personally. Phew. Manage to snag those metallic heels from Zara on sale at the very last minute as well. Double phew.

I've been eyeing these few pairs of Jeffrey Campbells for a while now. Why? Cause of the irresistible sexy heel, reminded me of Mugler.

What I wore on the first day of Chinese New Year, I look like a huge red packet! Now you understand why I said that I'd only wear the clothes I get for CNY once or (at most) twice and it'll be abandoned/stuffed deep in my wardrobe? I just don't wear clothes like this on a regular basis!

Got this dress from my friend's shop, LOUI.G! Love it cause of the bareback (duh)! But it was a bit short and I felt exposed so I wore safety tights underneath the dress. I seriously need to slim down (heaps), thunder thighs and flabby arms alert! So lazy though.

Just a quick outfit post before I nap, super deprived of sleep right now. Mahjong marathons. Heh.

Comfy outfit for a JC gathering and some last minute shopping last Friday. Wearing the green top I mentioned in the previous post. I could last forever in this pair of heels, gawd I love them so much. I was in it from 1pm to 10pm and I didn't feel any blisters forming or any aching at all. Major love!

What I got recently from the sales! My wallet is weeping and shrinking at the same time.

Just realised that I've been purchasing quite a bit of white tops recently, I don't know what's causing that. Maybe it's a sign but I don't understand what it's trying to tell me, I should go shopping more to see what other "signs" I'd get. Hur hur. Actually I got a green top as well but it's in the laundry right now, you'll see it in the next outfit post.

I've been wearing my trusty black pants from Topshop almost every other day! Decided to get a couple more pairs so that I can rotate between them. Got a pair of straight cuts from Zara (on sale) and another pair from H&M Conscience Collection. I love the pair I got from H&M cause it's pure cotton, so comfy I can die in it.





















Long sleeve striped top from Zara (on sale) and a mandarin collar top from Feist Heist. I've got a soft spot for mandarin collars, I CANNOT RESIST THEM.





















Long sleeve shift dress from Zara (on sale) and accessories from H&M.





















Antelope print tank from Bugis, it's only ten bucks.





















I got quite a few more items for my Chinese New Year outfits but that will have to wait.

In the mean time,
新年快乐, 身体健康
事事如意, 心想事成
in advance to all my readers who are celebrating Chinese New Year! Huat ar!

Whatever Happens

Saturday, January 21, 2012

Just a day out at Bugis in one of my more chillax outfits. Went shopping with Yiu cause I wanted to explore the new shops in Bugis Village. There are so many stalls selling clothes at S$10-S$15! What in the world?! And there were pretty decent stuff but I didn't get anything, Yiu got quite a bit and she spent like S$50 only. Cheap thrills.

Painless

Thursday, January 19, 2012

Thanks for all the emails that everyone's been sending me regarding the job opening! I'll try to get back to everyone asap!

I'd be so deprived of black outfits and super busy next week cause it's Chinese New Year! I'm super pantang (superstitious) about such traditions so I've never worn a black outfit during CNY. However I do wear black jackets or cardigans but it's outerwear so it doesn't count. I always try to wear dresses during this period cause it's more "family appropriate" but it's so not me so I usually wear them once or twice only. Oh oh! And I hate the whole last minute rush for CNY clothes (it has been happening for the past few years), but it's so hard to find dresses that I really like - it can't be too frilly and yet it can't be too sexy/edgy. So troublesome, I know. So I started planning early this year cause I was determined not to go through the whole process again. AND I FINALLY GOT ALL MY CLOTHES FOR CNY! Hell yeah.

What I wore to the Art Stage last week with Lenne. I'm not a very artsy person so the Art Stage was kind of overwhelming for me cause the place was so huge with hundreds of artists exhibiting. BUT it was a great experience and it really opened my eyes to the arts. Lenne being my "art guide" for that night was just awesome cause she's noob and I'm noober. The whole night we just went, "What a splendid piece of art!" and different variations of such sentences. Please don't judge us! We really do appreciate all the art pieces but we had no idea what to say. Hee.

One can never have too many basic necessities in their wardrobe. It can be tiring to constantly take note of what's "IN" and "OUT" this season, so I always go back to my trusty white top and black pants combi whenever I feel like it.

Met up with Dawn, Lenne and YY for dinner before Dawn had to head back to London.

Finally got to wear out this jacket from ASOS Revive! They use vintage materials and/or clothes to reconstruct into new apparels! It was my birthday present and my friends got me the matching shorts as well. I love it, it's so shiny.
