inspiration: bridesmaid dresses

Went lurking around Tsim Sha Tsui today looking for a tailor to make bridesmaid dresses. There's this place called Beverley Commercial Centre where there are a whole cluster of bridal stores on the second floor. Most of the tailors will whip up a whole dress from scratch for around $40-50 CDN! You just have to give them all your measurements and they'll make it for you in about 1-2 months. Most of the dresses are chiffon or satin in a variety of different colours. I actually haven't decided on what colours I want, and just looking at all the hues of fabric made me even more indecisive! I'll probably go back eventually when I've settled on a style. 

Anyway, one of my favourite sites for dresses is MODCLOTH so I went searching for inspiration on different styles and ended up collaging a whole bunch of them like an art piece. I think that's because I always think of style & fashion as an extension of art - style for me is all about (mis)matching different colours, prints, and textures. So here's some dress inspiration for you all... (I'm sure all my guy readers are so extremely ecstatic right now)... bahahaha...

Which ones are your favourites? I'd love to know!!


  1. My favorites are the 2nd row the 1st and 3rd dress, the 5th row 3rd dress, 6th row 3rd dress..but of course colour can be diff..just my thought =p have fun choosin

  2. For shape, I love the 2nd and 4th on the 2nd row- the higher neckline with texture is gorgeous. I'm in the love with the very last one. The sweetheart neckline, the pleating and the unique print are all stunning!

  3. So glad you are staying true to who you are :)
