Rain Drops Keep Falling

It rained nearly all day yesterday in Bangkok. It is the rainy season after all. At least it never gets cold. I suddenly had an urge to wear another clashing outfit and even added a prop (umbrella) that clashed too! Spots, stripes and checks!

Striped dress worn as top – AllDress, similar Bebe. Pink skirt – Zara. Checkered shirt – M&S, similar American Apparel. Polka dot umbrella – similar. Feather bracelet – Accessorize. Gold stacked bracelets – Thai markets, similar Shopstyle. Logo ring right hand – Marc Jacobs. Nails – Revlon new collection.

 

In my search for a similar polka dot umbrella, I came across this adorable  DIY’ blog called ‘the Polka-Dot Umbrella

White Delight

My husband and I are on holiday in Chiang Rai (Northern Thailand) which is beautiful and lush with an incredible mountainous back-drop. We are staying at the lovely riverside LeMeridian Hotel & Spa, the perfect backdrop for a white dress.

Jessica Rabbit Grey Dress

This is frock perfection in my eyes! Never has one dress ticked so many boxes. Allow me to list my criteria:

1) Length – on-the-knee classy 2) Sleeves – cute and capped 3) Colour and cut – amaze 4) High waist band to elongate the silhouette.

And can you cope, this dress was on sale at 20% off (Siam & Central World major annual sale) I would have paid double the original price. Sometimes it works out to be a tall expat in Asia because no one else buys the ‘Large’ dresses. Oh, and don’t forget, this is one for the full body Spanx.

Grey dress – Alldress, similar Moschini $519, Marley’s $401 from Yoox.com, Peep Toes – Nine West Flute $99

Stripes!

Ok, so as you can see, I have a thing for stripes. I love them, every shape, colour and style. I cannot help myself when I see a fab striped item. I actually have a similar dress in black and white, the stripes are thinner and the material heavier, but equally fab. I find that striped dresses made in wool or wool / knit blends fit best because they are less clingy and more forgiving of lumps and bumps than cotton blends.

I added a thick silver cuff bracelet and simple gold flats as the dress is quite short, so it would be a tad over sexy with heels! It looks cute with a pale yellow cardigan or even a fitted denim jacket.
