Restyling of DIY ROM dress

I couldn't bear to just wear my ROM dress once, since I took so much pain to make it. My cousin's wedding was the best time to wear it again! I was the MC for the dinner that night, hence it was the best excuse to be slightly dressy.

I did not want to wear it all white like my ROM, hence decided to restyle it. My original dress had a self- made white lace belt. I changed it to a black belt.

You can see my original post here.

Since the dinner hall is going to be cold, I wore my thrifted black velvet bolero with beaded edges. I also brought along my vintage suede purse with gold edges. So glad my bag and love for vintage became a talking piece between me and my aunt.

This is the beautiful scenary of the Clarke Quay from the hotel where the dinner was held. And below are my goofy pictures around the hotel.


  1. I can't believe you made that yourself, it's so pretty!

  2. I love how you re-styled it! You are so talented! And the vintage dress in your previous post is so swoon worthy!! :)

  3. ah the bolero's turned out good. you can layer your rom dress with a fitted tee underneath. i'm sure you can think of more ways.

  4. You made that dress? Wow! It looks stunning on you!

  5. Thank you for your kind comments! I almost wanted to throw my dress one side after it's two time exposure, your comments now make me want to restyle it more times.:)

  6. Sweet dress and the bolero is a really great layered piece.
