A Little Red Never Hurt Anyone

A little pop of colour never hurt anyone especially if it's RED!
Definitely one of my favourite colours of all time.

I've never been much of a minimalist or 'monochromist' (haha I made up that word)..but
I do dress to my own interpretation of minimalism from time to time.
I'm usually more of a print/pattern person though I do agree that one cannot do without trusty basics.

I appreciate the minimalist style and I really enjoy seeing local fashion icon and fashion designer Yoyo Cao's interpretation of that style through her instagram posts. 
I love that she doesn't only stick to the usual monochrome palatte but injects colour and textures to her outfits while keeping the overall clean and simple lines.

Today, I'm wearing a red eyelash lace dress from New Dress.
What attracted me to it was its square neckline and sleeve details and since I already own quite a number of white and black lace dresses, I decided to try out a red one this time.
For this outfit, I wanted it to be a good mix of tough and girly so I paired it with a pair of black boots. I felt that the flare sleeves lent a bohemian feel to the dress and added a black floppy hat and completed the look with a belt to define the waist. 

Floppy Hat: Bangkok
Boots: H&M

Have a lovely day!
