Because Every Girl Needs a Swirl Dress

When was the last time you put in time and effort to put an outfit together? Including doing the hair, picking the accessories and shoes?

When I was a little kid, my mother will pull the correct clothes for us before we leave the house. There was a clear category of clothes for the home, for going to the provision shop downstairs and for going to places beyond the neighbourhood. And of course to the different occasions.

Now I see the T-shirts/tanks and shorts combination everywhere. Which some people call it the national uniform.

I think people has forgotten to dress up.

Regular shoppers at Queenbels know that we carry dresses and blouses in classic designs with unique details that last for seasons. This is what we do.

At times, I received walk-in customers who viewed the apparel that I carry is too formal.

Customer: “Where do I wear them to?”

Me: “When you go to work, on your family day, meet friends or on a date with your partner.”

Customer: “I don’t have time. I just want to throw something on quick before I leave the house.”

I sneak a quick peep (it’s very rude to stare at another person from head to toe) and very often, I see loose-fitting jerseys, shapeless blouses and in colours black, dark blue and white. Please pardon me, the impression that flashed across was, all they want is to have something to cover up their bodies, that’s all. This is such a pity, because I think they will look really pretty if they put on something else.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to dress the way you like. I only wish that they can attempt to put on apparel with more details and colours other than black, blue and white.

Chiffon Swirl Dress is one such dress that you can start with.

The highlight goes to the block colours, the slanted v on the front of the dress and an interesting detail at the back.

The block colours are made up of two separate pleated chiffon fabric, cut and sew, not printed block colours. The slanted v on the front gives a slimming silhouette.

Chiffon Swirl Dress is one easy to wear and easy to maintain dress. My experience with the chiffon dresses that I carry is, no ironing is needed after I remove the creases. I have tried and tested. After the first steam ironing, I handwash them. When it’s dry, the creases don’t come back, the pleats fall back into place and I do not need to do any steam ironing again.

Style File on Lunar New Year 2013

Before and during the Lunar New Year, I had shared snapshots of the ongoings on my home front and the outfits I put together, on our Facebook page and on Instagram (@queenbels).

I went pink this year, including a pair of pink colour shoes which I have yet share a photo of it.

You may find the Pleated Collar Ruffles Chiffon Dress foreign because I have not share any photos of this dress on the social media.

The Pleated Collar Ruffles Chiffon Dress was a complete sell-out. Every piece was sold very quickly each time I put up a new piece. I only managed to capture a snapshot of this beautiful number just before it was grabbed by a lovely regular customer.  This dress comes in pink violet and camel. I have secured a limited quantity restock for the camel colour. I hope I can do a restock on the pink violet colour too. I will keep everyone updated on the restock status on the Facebook page, so stay tuned.

Checks Peplum Blouse was first introduced last year at one of our mini bazaars. This pretty blouse comes in pink/white checks and blue/white checks. I couldn’t find a bottom piece that fits me so I didn’t have a chance to put on this blouse earlier. I was so happy when my favourite basic apparel store did a restock of this leggings pants in new series of colours. The shade of pink on the leggings pants is almost the same as the shade of pink on my blouse and the size fits! A restock was done on the Checks Peplum Blouse and is still available for purchase in our private showroom.

The Lunar New Year is celebrated for fifteen days. You will see me in more gorgeous Queenbels apparels for this Lunar New Year. Stay with us on our Facebook page and Instagram @queenbels for new snapshots.

The showroom is open today for you to shop your Valentine’s Day dresses. I see you!
