Very quickly, let me introduce you to some new members of my closet.
An asymmetrical dusty blue top. $10
Love the buttons and the ruching. (:
A pleather vest. $8
This belongs to my sister but I included it anyway, an alldressedup top. Buttons and all still intact. $5
And my favourite…
Wave print A | X short dress. $10(!!!)
I’m so proud of this buy. Can you sense me beaming away :D:D:D!
And for $1. I picked up these 2 books. After I read up for my Japan trip. I’ll get to these (((:
Jo and I participated in Flea Titan on a whim and in an attempt to clear our closet plus to get some moolah (for more beautiful things).
Damn the economic crisis.
I was a bit busy and preoccupied to take during and after shots of the flea so I only have before shots to share…
We had some technical difficulty setting up the rack.
But thankfully it held up!
(At the booth next to ours, the rack literally broke! 0.0! and adjacent to our booth, their rack kept swaying :/)
Our table + rack. Fully utilized.
Everything in the bucket/tub went for $1 each. (and there were ppl still trying to bargain and be fussy at $1. seriously?! hahas)
Towards the end, in her bid to not bring home her stuff was giving her stuff away, shouting ‘Free shoes! Free clothes!!!’ and I swear everyone within earshot froze in their tracks and stared at her in disbelief. hahas. it was quite funny.
All in all a fun day… even though food was nightmarishly expensive!
Thank you for supporting Wottoncool’s $1 and $2 goodness! (:

Here’s what Jo wore to Uniqlo’s press preview.
Striped dress, Topshop. Polka dot jacket in reverse colours inside, Church’s $1 thrift store. Bubble wrap and striped jersey neck thing, Bangkok.
Excuse my act cute face.
Oh clashing prints, how original. I just needed a confusing amalgamation of patterns to hide my burgeoning tummy… And bum, and fat legs.
I got this case for a $1 steal while sourcing for gifts for our blog’s birthday giveaway.
Denim Vest: from my childhood
White Tank top: Uniqlo
Butterfly print skirt: Espirit
Shoes: Charles and Keith
Cream Case: Church thrift store
Used it for school the other day. Quite fun but requires that the case be on my lap or any other flat surface to open and avoid it’s contents spill out.
More close-ups soon!
Does anyone know where I could possibly have the bag professionally cleaned?
That’s our mantra for a lot of things – attending driving lessons, going for our driving test (including maintaining a O_O face for maximum focus), studying, sometimes blogging…

On Sunday, I had the opportunity to check out Jo’s infamous $1 Thrift Store from which she has gotten many enviable gems.
Within half an hour, we found goodies aplenty! 😀
I’m really excited with the purchases!
But alas! We aren’t keeping most of our finds.
Jo and I have something planned…
And you could be the proud owner of the contents of these bags!!!
