H&M Studio S/S '16

Last Wednesday, H&M launched their Studio S/S '16 collection exclusively in Mega Fashion Hall.
I must say, even now as I write this, I still cannot decide how exactly to describe the collection in its entirety. At least not in a single word. Most of the pieces are of course light and airy--perfect for the approaching summer heat--though I don't think it does the collection justice to describe it only as resortwear even with the abundance of sheer fabric used and the availability of several bikini options (not necessarily in sheer fabric!). Hints of safari can also be seen in the neutral, anti-fit shirts, pants, and even coats, while tribal influences are injected via the bolder hues and prints. 

In attendance with me were DS, and my colleagues, Nikki and Jonas. All dear to my heart and healthy for my bank account as my shopping conscience.

The launch was held last 24 February, a few days short of the month-end's salary, so I attended with the intention of purchasing only one item. I had done my research beforehand, and was rather disheartened that the maxi dress I had initially been pining for wasn't going to be available locally. That obviously didn't stop me from choosing another item to update my wardrobe this season.

Read more to see which item I deemed worthy to spend my limited budget on.

With my love of maxi dresses, I couldn't resist trying on the centerpiece. It is the dress that did not make it to my closet, but at least I have a selfie in it.

And the piece that I chose: this rust asymmetrical skirt. Much as I wanted to purchase the green dress above, I knew it would only be great to wear for a few (i.e. limited) occasions, and with the growing need for practicality, I opted for a skirt that I can wear with clothes I already own, and style with more versatility (This is fast becoming my blog's cliché, and I honestly don't mind). Styled with a black, high-necklined top and mid-height heels made the skirt less take-me-to-the-beach, and more work appropriate.

I can actually also wear the skirt as a tube dress, but let's save that for another time, shall we?
