yet another $29 dress!

this time, from robinsons (centerpoint), by oasis, a "brand" from the uk. original price? sgd79.00. i've been on the look-out for something like this for years! the first time i tried a dress w/ batwing sleeves, my boobs looked like they had sagged and somehow attached themselves to my arms. horrifying. so horrifying, it put me off trying anything resembling that dress.. even this dress. it was the last one on the rack, so, since i now work at robinsons, i figured i'd just buy it first, then try it on at home. if it didn't fit, well, i could just return it the next time i was on duty..

what can i say, i am rather fond of turquoise.. despite my ex-bff telling me about five years ago that turquoise didn't suit my skintone, after seeing me in my first turquoise tee by PureMilk (i know, what an embarassing name; i was only a teen back then, plus they had cute tees).

at first glance i thought it was a tunic, turns out that it's actually a kaftan! a thin, cotton turquoise kaftan w/ white embroidery, to be more precise. i managed to find it online just by google-imaging 'oasis embroidered kaftan', & so, tadah, here it is. the color's not as bright as in the photo though; the flash hurts my eyes, even when it's not directed at me..
