A Red Belt

A skinny red belt is one of those wardrobe staples every girl should own. Like a microwave, you don’t realise how you ever managed to live without it until you got one.

Karen Millen Shocking Pink

When I first saw this frock from across the department store floor, my heart skipped a beat. Sparks flew. It was love at first sight. I tried it on and it felt like I was the only person ever meant to wear it. That is what a dream dress does to you. It is life altering. Sigh.

Soft Frock

My husband calls this ‘the hairy dress’ which makes me laugh. It is almost 3D because the material is made up of little mottled ‘tuft’s that stick out from the base fabric. I have even experienced the odd occasion of someone wanting to ‘pet’ my dress because it feels really soft to the touch. I love how it fits because it hugs your curves without clinging to any undesirable lumps and bumps.

Dress – Zara Collection old, similar Maison Martin Margiela $59. Two-tone heels – Zara similar $40. Clutch – Ava Clutch Accessorize $40. Make-up Bobby Brown.

 

Hoop Dress

There is nothing quite like a hoop skirt built into your dress. This fabulous frock has invisible ‘bones’ stitched into the seams, which, although fairly rigid, are not totally stiff. Which means they hold the slightly poofy silhouette of the dress without it being able to stand up alone, because that is creepy. The broad skirt perimeter means your legs look longer, which is always a bonus. Good dress for a Summer wedding I think!

City Stripes

I simply love anything with stripes. Especially in classic colors such as black and white or grey and white. Sailor chic I say!
I had some fun milling around a Bangkok street this morning (actually I live on this street) and even posed in a phone booth. Which I now realize is fairly unhygienic.
