Monochrome part 1

There is something so attractive about red, black and white. It brings certain elegant mood into pictures and I can’t help feeling like I am starring in an old film (Audrey Hepburn wannabe moment? :p). These colour combinations are clear winners when it comes to colour pairing and it is my to-go-to-colours when I have absolutely no idea what to wear!


Believe it or not, this is my FIRST MNG dress that I have bought in Singapore. As a teenager growing up, I have always wanted to lay my hands on MNG items but due to lack of funds (and the fact that I never want to spend my parents hard earned money on myself), I never did get that opportunity. I was secretly envious of my school friends whom bragged about their favourite MNG moments. 

Fast forward down the track, I am now able to support myself financially and still have $$ to spare, I visited just about every MNG boutique in Singapore, in a mad attempt to break this virgin spell. This dress costs me about $SGD 80 and although it had a damaged zip (the sales assistant didn’t want to give me further discounts to compensate for it – it was the last piece in all their stores!), I still bought it anyways.

I wore this dress to a fancy restaurant in Singapore. The velvet, sequin and silk layer (combined with blood red velvet shoes) made this entire look felt luxurious and classy. What more could you ask for? 🙂

  1. Hi there! Loving your blog, my name is Katie Elliott I am the creator of Tag a (
    The website works like this: each week I announce a new fashion trend, and people send in pictures of themselves wearing that trend to along with their name, age, town and a link to their blog.
    These pictures then appear on our Facebook wall at and on the Tag a Trend site.
    This week’s trend is ‘Swinging Sixties’ and as I can see you are loving the trend (your monochrome), I thought you might be interested in getting involved and sending in a pic of yourself in something 60’s style!
    Your picture will be featured with a direct link back to your blog so is great for spreading the word about your site!
