Life’s a yacht.
Ladies, hemlines are key to nailing the perfect dress. The loveliest design can be sabotaged by an unflattering hemline that makes you look frumpy or shorter than you really are! This gorgeous MDS straight-cut dress was love at first sight, and I got it despite it being in between lengths. Neither a tea length or a floor length, the in-between hemline is a tricky terrain to navigate. Choose a dress with a visually shorter top that cinches in at the waist to instantly elongate your legs – great for petite girls like me! Don’t forget the neckline, choose one that accentuates your collarbones or shoulders to balance the extra cloth at the bottom, such as a thin strap halter neckline or even a sweetheart neckline. Pair it with shoes that have slim straps to add an elegant finishing touch. Nude or cream heels are also a great option if you want a closed toe design for more formal events. Accessorising should be minimalistic in this case, dainty accessories with simple details are the best way to go! Try a crystal choker to add a 90’s vibe that’s all the rage right now. That can also bring a more casual feel if you’re just going for a nice dinner, which I was.
Before heading for our seafood dinner at the Sentosa Cove area, just outside our W Hotel staycation! (aka before my food baby pops out, heh)

It’s funny because I never went near a yacht that day – the boats (will the rich kill me for calling them yachts this) were cordoned off and a security guard was at the barricade so only members were waved in. I guess there’s always next time, right?
