OOTD: Will You Be My Valentine?

Well a belated Valentines everyone! I strongly believe that Valetines is not only for couples. When I was in high school, singles would also celebrate it as Friendship day and give each other flowers so we are never really alone. It is nice! Last year this time, I was single and we celebrated by going out for a good meal. Any reason to eat at all is good!

Valentines is a Monday and I had to work and I don't relish the thought of overcrowded restaurants so I went out the day before. My friends asked me to go out for a Sunday morning breakfast and so I did. It was decadent! To be truthful, I ate my day away literally. Morning breakfast and afternoon tea were courtesy of the friends and dinner was with the Boy. I was very stuffed when the day came to an end!

We were at Jones the Grocer for breakfast.

My best friend whom I've known for 17 years now. Shocking!

Her adorable son, so tiny and so naughty.

This little girl ran up to him and molested him all over because he was wearing a tshirt that says "I'm Rich!"

Milk Rocky Road, a combination of marshmallows, caramel and violet crumble and milk chocolate

Valentines, not without some heart-shaped objects. These macarons are made of rose, lychee and passionfruit.

Deep fried towered egg with sauce

Thai food is not without a bowl of sweet and sour spicy Tom Yam soup

Barbecued squid with sauce

Deep fried sweet and sour Garoupa with herbs

All these food and I didn't even showed you what I ate for breakfast! A special mention to my cherry earrings which I adore and spent a long time finding. They looked very real and I have people telling me from time to time how delicious they looked hanging from my earlobes!

Review on the ASOS CURVE Exclusive Vintage Inspired Playsuit:

The moment I saw it, I knew I had to have it although there are a lot of things that I saw and knew that I had to have. First of all, may I say I love jumpsuits and playsuits? They are like dresses to me - easy to wear, no mix and match required and I am really a boy trapped in a girl's body. I tend to hop and sit cross-legged a lot and dresses are sometimes too inconvenient. This playsuit has the most beautiful plethora of colours. I love the flutter sleeves, the neckline of the playsuit, the slightly ruched bodice and to top the cake, there is a lovely cutout behind the playsuit. Now in our hot summer weather, I appreciate cutouts like these to be cool and in all sense of the word, this is a perfect playsuit! When it arrived, the material was thin but I didn't feel that it is inferior because the material is meant to be thin and cooling. The floral prints are absolutely gorgeous and the bottom flares outwards so I can fit into my usual size 22 with ease. The only thing that I did wish for was for it to be a little longer. In its current length, I cannot bend down without exposing my rump for the world to see. But other than that, perfect perfect perfect! Very true to size and a well-loved piece to pass the hottest summer days with ease.

Bowdicts for the ASOS CURVE Exclusive Vintage Inspired Playsuit:

I still gave it a full 5 bows even though I wish it was slightly longer. I think I should have expected it to be short from the pictures on the website.

Fat Aus is also rocking hers here!

Lovely post, D! I enjoyed all of the pictures. You're making me want to travel to Singapore to enjoy the weather & the yummy food :). I love the playsuit on you. I'm the same way, I sit with my legs tucked under and it's not so easy in a dress. I'm glad you had a great V-Day. Your envelope purse is too cute and I can see your happiness radiating through :)

You look so cute in that playsuit! I've considered buying it, too, but don't think my shape could pull it off as well! Looks like you had a great day, happy belated Valentines/Friendship day :)

Ahh, her son is so cute :D I never celebrate Valentines either, I don't like it when events are so predetermined. I want to do my own thing, you know?
It;s good you reviewed about the length. I would have never thought it to be short.
It looks airy indeed, great for tropical weather (for when I move back to Curacao).

I love this romper! You look so chic and comfortable at the same time and that for me is the winning combination! I love the floral print, so perfect for the hot, sunny weather we have yet to see. However, seeing you in this playsuit gives me hope that soon we too shall be able to expose our legs and hopefully look half as cute as you! :)

Thank you for reviewing this! I've been looking at it and looking at it! How tall are you may i ask? I'm 5ft 3" - I want to see if it'll be as short one me.

Also how CUTE is your friend's little boy!!

Love the playsuit! I just did a post about how I'm lusting over bright floral prints for spring. I've always been dubious about the playsuit because it seemed complicated, plus I don't do shorts. I'm not a fan of my legs. But I bet I could pair this with some tights and still be cute. Maybe? but not as cute as you miss, you just look the part in that bright colored gorgeous thing!

All that amazing looking food is making me hungry as I sit in bed and type this comment!!! They playsuit is gorgeous. I love the way they look but I really don't think they suit my body well so I'll just have to stick to dresses. I always think they must be a right pain when you need the loo.

I just want to say the playsuit/romper looks good on you. I can't wait till the weather gets better so I can wear a romper I got this year from forver 21. I've had one in my closet for ages from Walmart that I need to wear too, but I think it needs a bit of altering~
