I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Hubby: Oh, is that a new scarf now?

Me: No, it’s just me foaming at the mouth looking at that girl wearing leggings as pants…. and a bit of latté-fluff I spilt this morning while I was knitting on my bicycle at a red light.

Hubby: Hope you haven’t been using your helmet as a yarn basket…


Hubby: You’re a dumbass.

Giving Missoni scarves a chance. It’s so frilly it makes me want to cry a little but the loose mohair crochet reminds me of my Rodarte-craza circa 2009 and the fact that it looks like a jellyfish makes it a whole lot more interesting than a boring little cashmere scarf. I did not just say that, sorry.

Thank you hubby for helping with the shots & Style Passport for the scarf

  2. hahahah you really made me laugh there!

  3. Like the earthy and light tone!

  4. Love the colour palette here, beautiful!

  5. Cute outift!

  6. beautiful coat!


  7. Hey Shini, I love the colour and texture of the scarf! The coat is also envy-inducing – makes me want to pop into my local Zara.

    One thing about the use of the word ‘retard’: if you could take a look here (http://www.r-word.org/) that would be wonderful. I know it’s a small thing, but every little thing counts. Thanks!

  8. OOh you’re absolutely right, thank you so much for that.
    Editing to ‘dumbass’, at least that’s insulting just to me.

  9. caution:slippery surface

    @Shini, this is why i love you, you shiny shini mofo. you’re such a class act. you took this gentle retribution with such a humble approach (and with a pinch of the subtle humour that is so adamant in your nature) whereas most of the other well-known bloggers or even the everyday girls i meet would’ve retaliated with such vulgar aberration. e.g. something along the lines of ‘this is my blog and i can do and say whatever i like, sod off’ or ‘if you have a problem with my usage of words, you can just hit the x button and jog on’

    you actually took the time to honour her simple nudge. oh you you.. little things like this is such a window (albeit tiny) to your beautiful soul, you have no idea.

  10. @Shini, Thank you so much! Pretty much everything that caution:slippery surface said above. Though I’d like to believe that other people would be more sensitive to this issue, if it were also to come up. It’s truly important to me and many other people. Again, oodles and heaps of thanks!

  11. Such a warm, fluffy scarf. Wearing jellyfish never goes out of style…


  12. You are hilarious. Such a pretty ombre effect to the scarf, and love how you blended it perfectly with that darling coat.


  13. gorgeous coat!! and stunning pictures .

  14. You look very warm! I like how there seems to be a gradient in the scarf, that also makes it different for me. Hope you had a good weekend!

  15. Hahaaaa this post is hilarious!!! You look fab, even with a jellyfish around your neck ;)

    Having a bit of a rough evening here, and your outfit turned up the corners of my mouth. Then I scrolled to the photo with your perfect wedding band, and it made me smile and remember what’s important—my way-rad hubby, our diabolically rad child, and a rad new life ahead of us.
