By now you will all know that I’m attracted to asymetry and interesting details. That is one reason I gravitate towards the Alldressedup label as they always try to create  an interesting focal point in their clothes. I was attracted to this dress also because of the colour and the unusual draping at the front.

It’s the ideal kind of dress for hot singapore as it’s loose and of a natural fabric (silk). I also see a lot of potential of wearing this dress over pants, since it is a bit on the short side.

Although I love these interesting drapes, I also made a note to myself that I should also be looking for simpler shapes moving forward. I have a few of these draped dresses now, so it’s time for something completely different! I’m still looking for a red dress and I’m going to try and find something simpler. Still a unique shape but perhaps no more drapes.

The holidays are now fast approaching and I still have so much work to do and to plan for packing. I wonder if this dress will make it in into my suitcase… It’s going to be a challenge. 5 weeks away, 4 different countries, unpredictable (and potentially cold) climates. I still have no idea what kind of capsule I will take this time..
