I used to be so sad

Why did I wear such drab clothes?
Why did I wear such drab clothes?

Here’s an old photo of me from back in 1999 (when I was 21). I think it’s sad because I was so young but I hid behind ugly clothes when I could’ve experimented. No amount of Navy Blue or Black could’ve saved me. I should’ve just…. Anyway, I’m glad I love colours now.


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).

  1. You looked like me when I was that age, short hair and all. I was told I couldn’t dress in certain clothes because it made me look fat… lol. Now I know better.

  2. I feel your pain too – I was much the same as both of you:( Everyone telling you that you can’t wear anything nice because you’re “bigger”. I read an article recently that said that the number one mistake that larger ladies make is wearing baggy clothes – as they make you look even bigger! If only I knew back then!

  3. Hi there,

    I have only starting following your blog recently. As a plus size myself, I really love your style. This old picture of yours is really a proof that its never too late too be pretty. =) As a saying goes, there’s no ugly woman, only lazy woman.

    Thanks for all the sharing =)

  4. I love that you love colors now too cause you look so pretty in them! I think this is one of the aspects I most enjoy about your fashion style–your ability to wear these fantabulous colors and look like a million bucks in your cute outfits!

    1. Thank you Bella. You’re so encouraging. I don’t think I’m fashionable, I think I just stopped thinking and went with what I felt was right. That’ the secret, innit?
