We don't have many backless dresses, and we're kind of wondering why that is! They're great for showcasing curves you want to highlight and hiding imperfections in the front. It also caters for those of you who are not too fond of showing too much cleavage since backless dresses/tops gives that balance between modesty and sexiness. It gives a mysterious and classic appeal, which we love! When you want to keep it simple and classy with a bit of sex appeal, backless dresses are the go to item. This particular one we've designed ourselves. Choosing the fabric and cutting of the dress was a lot of fun. We wanted a simple silhouette with a little surprise in the back. If you noticed, we don't have a lot of patterns in our wardrobe, so we wanted to try something new. We chose this fun tribal fabric, which has been quite the trend lately. When you're working with patterns, you want to keep your accessories simple as to not clash with the patterns or to make the look more 'busier' than it should be. Try a backless dress this holiday season or to welcome the new year with a bit of style and allure!
One of the best things to do in Bali is to enjoy a beautiful beachfront view in the company of good friends. That's where beach clubs come in. Bali is an island filled with them, and a relatively new one is called Mozaic Beach Club which opened in July 2012 (sister chain to the one in Ubud). It's located on Bali's south coast trendy area of Seminyak in front of Batubelig beach. Currently there's been a ton of hype surrounding this particular spot, and when friends recommended it to us we gladly tried it out.
Getting to the location can be tricky if not familiar with the roads because from the main road it leads to a very small lane leading to the beach, which can be misleading. Mozaic is divided into two parts: a poolside chill-out lounge, and a fine dining restaurant. We were at the lounge and sat near the pool area. We ordered the set menu which we found... tasty - enough. The black mascarpone truffle is recommended, and the calamari salad was delicious for light eating. The view is not the best, since road construction is still underway but it wasn't too bothersome.
It is only towards the evening that the place gets filled, but before that it's quite empty, so it would probably be best to go before 5PM. Overall, it's nice, but we're not super crazy about it! Potato head still takes the cake in terms of beach clubs! :)

Hello everyone! So sorry we've been completely MIA the last several weeks, exams and assignments have taken over complete domination. Filled with bliss now that the semester is over and the holidays are beckoning :). We arrived home in Bali a couple days ago and much to our delight, our days have been spent relaxing, lazying, and divulging everything in sight! Before we left Jakarta, we purchased this lovely turquoise/aqua marine dress with an accordion skirt. It's fun and vibrant, a much needed pop of color in our wardrobe. Elizabeth is wearing this paired with a simple white collar buttoned down long sleeved shirt. We tied up the access material and tucked the shirt in in order to showcase more of the skirt of the dress. And of course, we never forget to add gold accessories, double the necklaces, and a classic gold watch. We love this outfit for going out with friends, having dinner etc. It's perfect for those warm Balinese nights!
