Review & OOTD: Dressabelle

Dress from Dressabelle | Clutch from Loft Bangkok | Heels c/o DressV 

Today's a sunny day, so I decided to have a special photoshoot! Thanks to my lovely sister @yinhui_0710 for her patience in taking these shots! I know it's hard to get pretty photos when your model a.k.a yours truly is like a piece of wooden block.  

Hints to future boyfriend: Please take lotsa pretty candid photos of me, I'll love you to bits.

With my hair stylist and photographer.

Guess the bun didn't work out well for me.

Finally decided to let my hair free.

Before the official photoshoot.

Posing like a real model.

Then laughing out loud cos it's so damn funny.

My lansi expressionless face works best for photoshoots.

And laughing again when my sister commented on my rigid postures.


I simply adore my Dressabelle Floral Midi Waist Detail Dress (Lilac)! I think it was really an awesome purchase, considering the great quality and cutting. It fits my body nicely. Plus, the texture of the fabric is heavenly. It's equal parts feminine and durable. The folds of the dress falls perfectly slightly below my knee, creating a luxurious, full look. Ts chic! Usually I avoid midi dresses cos I'm short, but I can't help getting my hands on this one, so hopefully the high heels will take away the short stumpy look --- and insert "long-legged fashionista". The dress is currently still available on the website in size S, so grab it while you can! 

Site navigation is a bit troublesome because there are no options to choose price range and sizes. So you might have to handle the punch in your gut when you spot a design you like, excitedly click into the page, only to discover that it is sold out in your size. *insert grumpy face* I was going to buy more but ended up with only one because of this. I suggest Dressabelle to come up with a system like Zalora - when you slide your mouse over the main listing image, it shows what sizes are available. Likewise, they also have options to minimize the overcrowded mass into your range of items.

I placed my order on 30th December 2014, and they shipped out on 2nd January 2015. Post office was closed on 3rd January 2015, so I only got my dress on 6th January 2015. Long story short, I got my dress 7 days after placing my order, which is a tad bit slow as their base is in Johor, but considering that they were probably having tons of sales at that period of time, this was understandable. Plus, shipping is free, so I'm willing to wait. :)

Pros: Excellent quality and cutting, pretty design, free shipping
Cons: Slow processing
