If you are wondering why I have been looking a lil pudgy lately, it's because I spent three weeks in Bangkok in January. Right after a breakup. Doing nothing but eating, sleeping and drinking alcohol. I actually gained a whopping 3kg while I was there. True story.
Now, 3kg might not sound like a lot and, in theory, it really isn't. In fact, if given a chance, I would keep the current weight that I'm in.
Unfortunately, before I went on that fattening Bangkok vacation, I was a size 1. And, well, an added 3kg meant that all of my size 1 clothes no longer fit me. Neither did my size 2 clothes, actually. So, in other words, I had nothing to wear.
Thus, the title of this blogpost and the choice of dress that I am wearing in it. Ironically enough, the first blogger's event that I attended when I got back was a food event: the media launch of Relik Tapas Bar and Lounge - which, as incredibly delicious as it was, did not help the state that I was in.
gold wire headband from Anagon Collection
brown clogs from Manels
I know, I know. I use this headband and these clogs far too much, but what can I say? I love them to bits. I'm actually wearing those clogs again today and they were one of the few pairs of shoes that I brought to Bangkok with me. Comfortable, versatile and chic - what more could a woman want out of her shoes? :)
dress from eBay
I actually got this unbranded dress off of eBay for only 20 pesos. That's 40 cents. Chyeah. The best part about it is that it will still fit me, no matter how fat I get. :p
YSL-inspired ring from Marianne Matic of Not Your Ordinary Beautyqueen - thank you so much for this, Mar! I LOVE IT!!!

...who is, sometimes, just as much of a dork as I am.
No proper outfit shot for her, though, since she was walking around in nothing but her jammies that day.
What do you think of my outfit? Is it decent enough for an outfit post? What tips do you have for "fat
days months"? I need them baaadly. I still haven't shed the extra weight that I gained on my trip. :(
