My Dress Collection

I will probably remember 2008 as the year in which I shopped and shopped... and shopped some more. Most of it had to do with a new-found liking for dresses, which probably accounted for 70% of the clothes I bought this year. Unfortunately, several of them ended up hardly worn or not worn at all as I just didn't have any occasion to wear them to. And don't even get me started on the shoes I bought this year ;-p

This is my latest buy from Etsu, a Singapore label, from Tang + Co. at Tangs department store. It was 50% off so I got it for S$200. It was a dress that I knew I wouldn't have many occasions to wear it but it was just so beautiful with the wispy white ribbons with raggedy edges around the lower half of the skirt that, as Sarah Jessica Parker says in her Covet ad, I *had* to have it. I think of this more as a collectible piece of fashion art.

I also developed a soft spot for anything with a star print this year. This was a long silk top from a sale at Miss Selfridge a couple of months ago.

A super comfy GG<5 dress which I've worn several times, always with black leggings.

Silk dress from Topshop. Bought this with the intention of wearing it to my brother's wedding but chickened out in the end as I hated the "scallops" (those bulges of flesh near the armpits). Need to lose some weight before I can wear this!

Very comfy cotton dress from Zara's TRF line.

Cotton dress from Miss Selfridge.

Another sale find from River Island.

From Mu at Bugis Junction. Love the dark magenta colour and shape but just haven't had the mood to wear it.

Prom dresses from Dorothy Perkins, sadly both of which I have yet to wear. I really have to stop buying dresses just because I like the prints!

Cotton dress from Yen by Arthur Yen at Robinsons. This is one of my all-time favourites, an elegant silhouette that is surprisingly comfortable to wear.

Casual dress from Esprit.

Hope you've enjoyed this peek into my closet! :-)

Hi everyone,

Thanks for all your kind comments! I wish I had more opportunities to wear these dresses too, especially before I get too old to pull them off ;-p

Hey Jojoba,
The black and white dress came out in Dorothy Perkins about 4 months ago, I think. I stalk that store regularly too, at least 3 or 4 times a month but lately, I haven't found anything that appealing. When I buy strapless dresses, I always make sure they are fitted such that they do slip down easily!
