ORIENT EXPRESS

This is what I wore for this year's Chinese New Year. Okay well, I had to cheat a bit with the photos as they were not shot on the holiday since there was not any reliable photographer at that time. Anyhow, I think the last time I recall wearing a Cheongsam was like 12 (or more?) years ago? I personally love how they accentuate the body's curves but I never found one I like until I encountered this teal number. plus with the sequined details, it's a major love for me.

loving my new contact lens from Geo Soflens Room.. I thought geolens were uncomfortable but turns out that they're just as fine. This one brightens up my eyes naturally without looking like those japanese human barbies

cheongsam by Sebastian Gunawan & shoes from Balenciaga


yes yes it's that Balenciaga heels again. I didn't expect alot of walks out of these shoes but turns out that they go with just about any outfit I pick out and they're dead comfy. In addition to that, a 13cm boost of height is always a good perk.

Krys said...

Oh, your dress is absolutely gorgeous! I love how it has the traditional curve-creating silhouette of a Cheongsam but has a much more modern detailing to it in the embroidery and sequins...especially the sequins. I can see why you were drawn to this dress. Hope you have a good rest of the week! xx

Ruta, Look Ugly in a Photograph said...

I hope you had a lovely New Year! Such a beautiful dress, and I completely agree with you. Those sequins are the perfect touch. Plus, the colour really compliments your hair and skin tone.

You know, my pet peeve of wearing cheongsam is fearing I would end up like a Chinese restaurant waitress! Last time I had one custom-made, I asked for a billowy skirt instead, for reason above.
But this one would never be mistaken for Chinese restaurant waitress uniform, hehehe... I think I'll make one with similar line. Thanks for the inspiration, Michelle!
