I am a CLONE~!!!! *ashamed*

It is I who have succumbed to the temptation of white cotton maxi dresses after being bombarded with pictures of a street full of Japanese wearing them. I am indeed talking about the Summer Trends we’ve previously blogged about.

I bought this dress while shopping with Dawn in Bugis Village, one of the local haunts for really cheap clothes. There is this little shop called Cherie, which sells clothes reminding us of this Japanese brand called Liz Lisa. They are responsible for a lot of the Gyaru trends you see in Japan.

And here you see the Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag which hasn’t seen the light of the day for at least a year. It looks like the perfect summer bag to pair with this dress. Have I mentioned that the dress is so light and airy which makes it perfect for Singapore’s perpetually hot and humid climate?

And god knows how long I’ve wanted a white maxi dress after seeing Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet. Claire Danes looks absolutely angelic in that white Dolce & Gabbana dress during the masquerade. I simply love designer collaborations in movies. I really loved Jean-Paul Gaultier’s work for 5th Element as well.

Outfit Breakdown:

  • White Maxi Dress: Cherie (Bugis Village)
  • Shoes: Esperanza
  • Bag: Louis Vuitton

Any particular character in a movie that you would love to dress up as? I really love the outfits in Marie Antoinette too but they’re so impractical for daily wear. :(

    Thank you. I have horrible awareness while wearing white though, like eating korean noodles. I ended up having splatters of soup on the dress. Well Done.

  3. I love Juliet’s dress in R+J. Don’t forget those amazing costumes Jean-Paul Gaultier designed for “The City of Lost Children”, one of my favorite collabs!

    Yes it is~ It should be easy to spot, their shop seems to be right in the middle of things.
