Happy Friday everyone!

Remember the Thai-American designer that I was completely obsessed with his designs during Singapore Fashion Week? I'm going to write about him and his clothes today. But instead of idolising his beautiful creations on the runway, let's talk about how the dress looks like on the real life and on a non model (me). In case you have no idea who I'm referring to, read this blog post to find out and have a glimpse of his fashion show in Singapore last month. He is none other than Thakoon Panichgu.  

It was my first time watching Thakoon's fashion show in Singapore last week and I was completely hooked. While watching the show, I was dreaming of wearing one of his design one day. I never thought that day would come so much sooner than I expected. Does it sound like a law of attraction? When you keep wishing for something and be positive about it, it will come true.

This beautiful maroon printed dress is the most versatile dress that I've worn. I'm not exaggerating. The loose and lounge-y mood of the dress with smooth polyester materials and slight hugging silhouette make this dress perfect for almost any occasion. Can I wear it to the office? - Sure! Just put a blazer on. How about a casual brunch? - Why not? I suggest pairing it with sneakers or flat sandals. Can I wear this dress to a party?- Absolutely! Take a look at these photos for reference.

When I was much younger, I used to buy clothes on a budget as I loved having many choices. Now, all I look for is good quality and versatile items that can take me from day to night and still make me look brand new. Just like this Thakoon dress!

Do you have such items in your wardrobe? What is your shopping strategy?
