Sunday was an outing with the family to the new Art Science Museum. This is a brand new museum here in Singapore and it was built as part of the Marina Bay Sands Resort. Currently the museum houses 2 interesting exhibitons:

  • A collection of Salvadore Dali’s artworks
  • Titanic – The artifact exhibition

Reason enough for us to go and have a look.

What I wore

pink and purple silk max mara alldressedup

Let’s concentrate on what I wore over here. If you have read my article selecting fabulous tops that can be used as basics as well you are already familiar with my purple silk top. A wonderful top I bought at the 70% off Alldressedup sale. I absolutely adore this color as well as the old pink of the skirt. I really don’t quite understand it myself why I’m so infatuated with that old pink, but ever since Stella McCartney started to use it extensively in her Stella McCartney for Adidas sport collection, I’ve been hooked.

For several years now (which is like an eternity for my doing) I have loved that color pink, and would buy anything that came my path in that color. Loving a color that much is actually quite tricky. Sometimes you just end up buying something ONLY because you like the color. This skirt falls a little bit in that category as I don’t normally wear that model skirt so often. However, the skirt was sharply reduced, the fabric was silk which I love and I found that there were different ways I could wear this skirt.

Despite all that, I have not worn the skirt much, but as I’m now shopping and analyzing my closet, I have found a new pleasure in wearing it. I actually felt great that day wearing this skirt. I love the color combination and because both the top and the skirt are 100% silk, the outfit is incredibly breezy and comfortable. The touch of silk on your skin truly is magical.

See how wide this skirt is! That creates a lot of opportunities….

Also I have found many other ways to wear this basic skirt and make it more fashionable.

How do you like this outfit? Would you wear a skirt this wide? Do you wear silk a lot?
