Shades of grey

Dreary day. As expected, 2 days to a public holiday, things hit a high. At least i didn’t have to work on anything that’s remotely associated with ISO-whatever and Lean Six Sigma-ish either.

Grey t-shirt from Mphosis

Accessorized w silver gears necklace known as Heavy Mettle by CarrieK Artisan Jewellery

Gunmetal grey mini skirt from Moschino cheap and chic

Sarah from the office had just received her new bag bought online – faux textured leather near-black roomy bag.



It was supposed to be a simple dinner gathering to welcome a friend’s husband from London… But I had to lay my eyes on the latest Infinity rings collection from local designer Carrie K.

I succumbed… Couldn’t resist this pretty silver ring that fits oh-so-nicely on my stubby fingers


A Night Out

Melody Gardot played at The Orpheum Theater tonight, one of Los Angeles’ most beautiful historic venues, and we had 6th row tickets! Yaay!

Dress: Purchased in Singapore for about $50: a sweetheart neckline tube dress with batik strips accentuating the bodice / bust.

Shoes: My current faves: Enzo Angiolini heels I scored for $27 at DSW.

Purse: Faux snakeskin clutch also purchased in Singapore for something ridiculous like $3 after I used a bunch of gift cards (“vouchers”) I redeemed using points from my internet service provider.

Earrings: $7.99 from Burlington Coat Factory.

I like having reason to dress up!

The BKK Report: 60 minutes

Keep eyes peeled for items that i would love for myself.

Do quick mental calculations.

And away we go!


3 x three-dimensional puzzles
5 x coin purses
6 x long wallets / clutches
6 x good cotton dresses for my bunnies!

Made it back to hotel (just a hop round corner from Platinum), unpack, snap pic, stuff into empty sports bag, reload water bottle and go!

We now leave u a pic of the little coin purse procured.



Replacing Oscar

Remember I broke my Oscar de la Renta sunglasses recently? I managed to snag this Armani Exchange pair at a very decent price of $24.95 a couple of days ago. Thank you, Nordstrom Rack!

Besides the obvious criterion – a shape that suits my face – I always do the “hair test” on my sunglassses: do they push my hair back nicely and sit comfortably when I prop them up on my head. Anyone else does that too?

Feeling blue

Last night at about 8pm, it occurred to me that I needed some accessories to go with this dress for a photoshoot the next day:

Cue a mad scramble, speed-walking to the mall to check out cheap accessories at Forever21, Charlotte Russe and Claire’s before the shops closed for the night. Thankfully, at New York & Co I found these Faceted Triple Drop Earrings:

(Pictured on my new Bottega-inspired clutch thingy)

Sadly, our photoshoot got rescheduled, so everything’s gotta wait. But on a positive note, I really like these earrings and can see myself wearing them again in future. Yaay!
