Today I’m doing a lookbook post at a new location because I kinda got tired of the brickwall backdrop. I will definitely still be using it for future lookbook posts though! I’m featuring a lovely convertible resort dress in an earth tone grey shade so I picked a backdrop with lush greenery to match the theme.
This dress is specially imported from South Africa by my dear South African friend, Amorie, who is currently selling these pieces in Singapore. I have a huge thing for convertible dresses because it’s really up to your creativity to decide what kind of look you’re going for – super versatile. You basically could choose to play it down for a day at the beach, or glam it up for a polished evening look. The downside is that it really is just a piece of cloth so you’re gonna need to work hard to accessorize the outfit such that you don’t look like you’re wearing a blanket. What I like best about this dress (besides it being a convertible) is that the material is luxuriously soft to the touch and light-weight which makes it perfect for humid weather.
As I was saying, I really wanted to bring some life to this dress so I unabashedly paired it with my gladiator sandals, a brown belt, a flash tattoo and chunky earrings. Truth be told, I really should avoid gladiator sandals because they tend to make my chunky calves (grotesque result of my younger years spent on mindless netball training and running) appear really, well, chunky looking…ew. But, heck. These sandals are too pretty for me to skip on.
So the pictures turned out looking very Jungle Jane-ish… but hey its my first non-brickwall lookbook post so I guess it isn’t so bad for a change! Hahaha. As always, thanks for dropping by! Don’t forget to check out my friend’s little boutique ‘Mooi’ – you can click the link directly below.
