My Personal Shopper

I have a secret source when it comes to clothes… Personal shoppers who live overseas! In Singapore, most things UK12 and up are overpriced and I can’t afford them. There are also few things in UK16/18 so I have very limited choices. Lucky for me, I have fantastic friends who find it a joy (and thrill) to scout for off-season clothes in my fatty size! I love that you won’t find another fatty wearing the same thing on this small island (which is often)…

So what happens is that, they help buy clothes in my size (not too big outside Singapore) and within my budget (not big at all), then get people who are coming to Singapore to bring them back or I’ll wait till they return… While I won’t get them immediately, I do know that there’s going to be a steady stream. Whatever I can’t fit or don’t want, I resell them on eBay and they do fetch a good price because they are still brand new (with tags)!!

Here are some more examples of clothes that are coming from my latest secret weapon Rydwan, my old pal from school!!

I produced an indie music festival in Singapore for 7years before I moved to the US to be with my indie game dev husband Tom who made Axiom Verge and Axiom Verge 2. We live in Los Angeles, California with our son Alastair (named for Alastair Reynolds) and our dog Goliath (named for his size).
