dresscamp fall 2014 review/Audi Fashion Festival

With internationally acclaimed designers like Prabal Gurung and Oscar De La Renta and homegrown designers like Hansel and Ashley Isham, last week's Singapore's annual Audi fashion festival proved to be bolder and better than previous years. Unfortunately, I couldn't grab seats for Prabal Gurung and DLR which I was REALLY looking forward to, but I did manage to attend Dresscamp, a Tokyo-based fashion brand, thanks to Parco.
Favourite looks:
In all honesty (and as cocky as this may sound), I found the whole collection quite tacky and very unwearabale. Although I didn't enjoy the majority of the looks, above are the two looks I favoured. The head gear above was definitely very Kate Middleton-esque (and who doesn't love Kate Middleton) and it complimented the white dress nicely. It was also one of the few looks in the show that wasn't bombarded with an array of loud prints. The look next to it isn't something I would ever wear, but it had to be my 2nd favourite look. I think what really attracted me to this look was that it deeply resembled a poodle which I found quite funny. You can definitely give the designer kudos for integrating modern day japanese couture culture into the clothes, which was evident throughout the whole collection.
*Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and these are just my personal ones. I am not here to hate on the designer, but just to express my opinions.*
These two looks were really disappoining and definitely my least favourite looks in the collection.The loud print in the first image clashed too much and there was definitely an unnecessary amount of frills to my tasting. In my eyes, the second look is pretty self explanatory for why it's my least favourite look.  The dress would have been quite nice without the black lace, which frankly ruined the whole outfit. If the makeup was much more natural with less eyeliner and heavy hair, I feel like the collection could have been nicer because all the focus would only be on the clothes.

colour inspiration


CHARCOAL(just my obnoxious way of saying black)

Hectic is probably the most suitable word to describe the past few weeks for me. From revising for my first ever exams and doing my exams to spending a week in Tokyo, I blame these activities for my withdrawal from blogging. But since my exams have thankfully finished for now, I will try to post as regularly as I can! Above, I have categorised a series of my favourite pictures at the moment according to their colours. Light colours like blue, grey and white can really neutralise any outfit and can match almost any other colours of an outfit, which makes it so versatile. In the past few months, black ensembles have also become essential in my wardrobe, be it a casual outfit out or a more dressy outfit for dinner. I don't know about you, but these covetable outfits above make me drool with envy. They are all very wearable and look so comfortable, which is essential this season.

Modcloth: Wanelo Outfit Challenge

DISCLAIMER: All opinons on this post are my own. I would never show my readers anything I do not like or have picked out myself. 
Summer sunsets is the inspiration for this story. The magnificent colours in a sunset can be emulated onto the Modcloth Bouquet of Seasons dress. Paired with a simple, sultry kimono and some Goddess-esque gold accessories. To bring back some structure to the flowy look, I paired it with a sturdy black satchel.

This outfit is a perfect example of why I love summer style. By keeping it simple, you can still make a fashion statement. The Modcloth Bouquet of Seasons dress, available in a variety of sizes, is in my opinion a great summer dress. It's perfect for day to night, will keep you cool, and the colours featured on it are breathtaking. However, this is just one of many dresses on Modcloth that are truly stunning, here are some of my other favourites! 
These dresses have a totally summery, vintage feel to them. As well as the feel, the fit and style of the dresses is one that fits to many different body types! My absolute favourite of all these lovely dresses is the one to the top left hand corner. I adore the colour combo, and the embroiled detailing on it. The two dresses on the right hand side are perfect for a graduation or prom! My graduation is coming up in about a month(!) and these dresses would be perfect for that occasion.
