THAT white dress!
Marilyn Monroe was famous and had a famous white dress.
I just have a famous white dress! 😀 Its actually taken on a life and identity of its own since the Citta Bella news eh?! My sis told me she wouldn’t be able to borrow it anymore because its just too memorable LOL!
A lot of you told me how much you liked it (thank you!) and asked where it came from, or if it was supplied by the magazine’s wardrobe.
That dress is actually my own. I bought it from Tang’s in Singapore during one of my visits, under the brand T.S. Not a well known or very expensive brand at all.
I was told to attend the photoshoot in a white dress/outfit and as I didn’t have anything white, I had to go out and get one. The dress on the hanger didn’t quite catch my eye. I walked past it quite a few times before asking to try it on, and even then, I wasn’t quite sure about it.
Still, I got it just in case I didn’t have time to go out and find one (and I didn’t) and the rest as they say is history. Its a simple white cotton dress with a very flared pleated skirt and is an empire cut which is very forgiving. The flowers along the sides are what add some character to the piece.
I have seen some T.S. pieces in Robinsons, The Gardens before this, but I do not know if this dress is there. I like this brand – they do very nice well cut dresses that fit me very well and I own quite a few pieces. Its not expensive at all during a sale (the cheapest I paid was S$29) but it can be a little pricey if not. I’ve forgotten the price of this dress but it was a full price piece that I remember cringing over when I made payment for it.
I and my dress thank you so much for liking it. Its certainly a memorable looking dress. I can’t imagine being able to wear it anywhere else after this 😛
