This outfit was almost postponed till tomorrow. The Indonesian forest fires are wreaking major havoc on air quality in Singapore. Yesterday, PSI (Pollutants Standards Index) levels were as high as 155 – with a 101 – 200 being unhealthy. (According to THIS SITE, it is 202 in Central Singapore as I type this post.) As I was making my way home last night, I progressively felt my throat closing in on me. By the time I got home at around 8.30pm, I realised why. My eyes were irritated and OPTREX eye lotion (the eye baths) became my best friend. I also guzzled water throughout the night.
This morning I woke up feeling really bad. My nose, eyes and throat were just shutting down their defenses and I headed for the clinic. I was given a day’s medical leave, some throat gargle, flu tablets and medicated eye drops. But because I already had meetings scheduled for 5pm and 7.30pm, I had to get dressed and go to work. So TAH DAH!!! Thank you Sianny for the pictures.
This is the 2nd piece sponsored by FLOW.
Say hello to my Twisted Front & Back dress which I now have in 2 colours – blue and fuchsia. I have to be honest and say that it’s not true to its colour description but I think I love it more than if it was a regular pinkish fuchsia. It is definitely darker and more like a jewel tone in person than reflected in my photos.
The dress is a luscious purple and I know this shade to be great for people of all skin tones. I’m a regular fair-skinned Asian (NC25) but I totally can see this working on someone who’s darker – gorgeously tawny gold tans or glowing brown tones. I love that the twisty front and back of the dress disguises lumps – you know, the belly folds and the back fats? Also, it’s so super stretchy and soft, like a lycra but less shiny, more velvety. I love that you don’t have to iron this and it won’t crease – notice the trend? But again, please use a felt hanger. Maybe double it over the bar to prevent it from over-stretching from hanging. The description on the FLOW website says it’s “EVENING” wear but I wore this to office. This is definitely a piece that can take you all the way to evening cocktail hour. Dress it up with a bolder lipstick, maybe a statement necklace and glossy high heels to transition.
What I’m wearing today:
Dress: Purple Twisted Front & Back dress from FLOW
Accessories: Stack of 7 black/bronze bangles from NEW LOOK
Footwear: Nude platform heels from FromTheHeel on eBay
