Stalk my Holiday Haul: Dorothy Perkins

Ok so here's one for the fashion folks as requested. I bought 3 pieces from Dorothy Perkins in Singapore.

One was the bird necklace that D picked for me. And I bought a dress and a top. I have to declare that my Mum has the same dress, except in a smaller size. Darn her. The problem with going to a tropical hot and humid island is that you come back with all these lovely Summer items. You arrive back and become unmotivated to unpack. Dude, it's cold. I don't want to look at thin slinky dresses. Unfortunately, this dress will be put away until Summer. :(

I pretty much wore the same 3 dresses while in Singapore and this is a great score. It's loose, cool-ish and easy to wear. I am sorry that I look like an "Auntie" going to the market with that hair. It is hot, very hot and humid, I just wanted my hair off my neck. Did I say HOT?
Font and Back
Please ignore the scar on my forehead as well. When on holiday I did not bother with makeup. I do not think there is anything worse than makeup in the humidity. Also a lesson about Singaporean friends, they will point it out to you and ask what happened to your forehead. And don't take offence because they ask as they care. Just be prepared for, "what happened to your head? Did you burn yourself with a straightener?"

I also bought this top because they were giving out vouchers and I think I was $2 short of a discount and tops were 20% off. It actually has a cut out at the back, nothing too raunchy but still. I kept my Rachel Zoe jacket on, also it has been freezing in Melbourne. Look .. coming back from Singapore, this place would be absolutely freezing.

Do you like the funky sinks at our office bathroom? Hells to the yeah. The Dorothy Perkins top is sleeveless too.. Yet another Summer number.

Birdie Necklace Tweet Tweet
Here's the bird necklace on closeup and is a bird on both sides. It actually opens up as the feet is a hinge. Pickles has started grabbing it and saying tweet tweet. Tweet tweet to you too Pickles.

Pondering and selfies go hand in hand
I am sitting here posing and pondering my next post. I have the most lopsided face like evahs and my glasses obviously need adjusting or my face is screwy and unbalanced. Anyways, I'm pondering mmmm what should I blog next? Sorry, I might have to go back to the makeup. Have a stab, what lipstick am I wearing? The name starts with T and F and who else can charge $300 for 50ml of perfume in Melbourne? Yeap... our favourite designer once at Gucci and YSL. Now THAT was a fun shopping outing as I had a list of things to buy for other people.

  2. I know what you mean abt the humidity and makeup. I'd be very slow putting on makeup whenever I visit Malaysia. It seems counter-intuitive. Unfortunately, my relos are very straightforward and shallow so would not be very forgiving if I didn't 'look presentable'. I'm too weak to face up to that, :P

    1. Yes! Very straight forward. But I have learnt to just smile and nod ... in one ear, out the next. Otherwise you end up cray cray. When friends say it, I take it as they are concerned so I try not to think omg what's wrong with my forehead.

  3. Great buys. I really love the DP top. I also have the same problem with my glasses, it's so annoying. I barely wear my glasses because I feel like it's really obvious that they're not straight when you look at the gap between the top of my glasses and my eyebrow. The gap is much bigger on one side. I do have to admit that when I put on my glasses, everything suddenly looks so crisp...

  7. Aw, that dress is too cute! Maybe wear it with leggings and boots in winter, and pop a coat on top?! I tend to do that, haha.

    Mind you I bought a whole bunch of gorgeous dresses that have never seen the light of day, since I got back.

    I'm so in love with Tom Ford's Black Orchid right now!
