[LOTD] Dress to the Max(i) Part II – Monochromatic Prints


Hello everyone! Welcome to Part II of petite friendly maxis.

Black and white graphic prints are all the rage this spring season (whatever happened to pastels?) and this piece is also from Miss Selfridge.

P1150304On hindsight, I think a black waisted belt might be good to add somemore waist definition even though it already has an elastic waistband. I think I was going for comfort that day and waisted belts are hardly regarded as comfortable. ha!



[LOTD] Dress to the Max(i) Part I – Bohemian Rhapsody


Hello everyone! It’s Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day today!!! 🙂

I’m really petite (just under 5ft), and I love maxi dresses and it’s a challenge to find one that elongates our body and doesn’t look frumpy. They are perfect for weekends where I just want to relax and be comfy without just turning to my tank top and shorts combination. So I was really really happy to find not one but TWO maxis from Miss Selfridge. They are definitely petite friendly and offer free hemming alterations. This is one of them. Perfect outfit to go get that free ice cream 🙂

It’s 100% breathable cotton and has elastic bands at the top and waist. There is an attached sash where you can tie a bow at the back for added definition. loves!



After I posted the pic of a girl in a side braid on our FB page (like us already if you haven’t), I wanted to try to do a fishtail braid.

Braids have a girly laidback charm and somehow I think it looks better with lighter hair though. Regardless, I think it goes really well with my whole boho look don’t you think? ;p



[LOTD] (Not so) Little Black Dress


It’s rainy season here in Singapore and what better way to spend the day than in a cafe enjoying a cuppa hot tea or coffee.

Love & Bravery black midi, Necklace borrowed frm Marie, Aldo slippers, Accessorize rose earrings, Owl ring (gift)

I love the stretchy cotton material of this midi dress. Ok, on me it’s an almost maxi since I’ve not taken up the hem. The sleeves also tend to slip off my shoulders from time to time.

Should have worn a strapless cos the straps kept showing. I chose to wear my hair up with this cos I wanted to show off the back 😉

THanks Marie! For capturing this candid shot…can see my dimples along with all the lines on my face! hahaa

This is an in between length for me…hahaha. But seriously comfy and perfect for long flights 🙂
