I picked up this beautiful dress when I was in Thailand. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, as I was walking through the mall. Saying that – I did go into quite a lot of boutiques – mostly with Thai designs. Thailand has got many designers that I’ve never heard of, and many of them producing beautiful clothing for reasonable prices. I’m surprised we don’t  have any Thai designs, in department stores in europe.

I’ve worn this dress before. Those of you who follow my blog, would have seen it in another post here and on Instagram.The metallic brocade cocktail dress, is perfect for this time of the year – during the holiday season. It’s decorated with sequins and metal rings. I will definitley find many more occasions to wear it. The colour is one of my favourite. Yes, I love red! I especially love the back of the dress and the very long bell sleeves.
