Bangkok Food + Shooting the HollyJean X ClubCouture Collection

Remember I went to Bangkok a couple of months ago? It was to shoot the lookbook for the HollyJean X ClubCouture  2014 collection.

I was so excited to visit Bangkok and to check out the finished apparel for the collection, have a photoshoot with Zachary Yong and also to meet Nui again. Sononui is a model + actress in Thailand and also one of the pretty faces on the ClubCouture's website.
 
As soon as I got off my flight, Zach and Nui picked me up from the airport and it was non stop Bangkok food food foooood... and a bit of work also lah.
The first stop straight from the airport was Mercury Ville Shopping Mall to have Japanese food at Sushi-OO.
OMG so fresh, so tasty, mouth watering sushi there. It's a very popular place for locals to enjoy really fabulous Japanese cuisine. They even have foie gras sushi. 
After that we went downstairs to a dessert place called Kallaprapuk !
It's pretty looking café with a good mix of desserts from or Asian delicacies like Chendol to a good selection of cakes and pastries.
Nui having the Chendol while I had a caramel custard. 
 
The next day, bright and early, we went to do our outdoor shoot around Ekkamai soi 10. When we were done, we all went for lunch close by at Roast Café. This is at Seenspace which is a pretty cool mall with lots of cool eateries and bars. 
Must try the Crab Cake Egg Benedict at Roast Café. It is mad delicious. 
For dinner we walked to Central World to eat at Laem Charoen Seafood. Super yummy Thai food! Lots of locals go there.
My first time trying tom yum soup with fish eggs inside. Yummmmm
Ok ok.. enough about Bangkok food! Here's a look at some of the HollyJean X ClubCouture lookbook photos taken of Nui and I that day.
Two piece ensemble in pure white (Betty Two Piece Dress $45). Can be used separately to mix and match with other clothes too.
Little green retro dress with a cut out back design (Lunar Dress $39).
This is an angel inspired piece, fluttery and light (Take it All Mini Dress $29). With cut out shoulders and soft mesh around the neckline. I use this as a tunic top with tights underneath, you can also wear with shorts.. or as a mini dress on it's own.
Sunshine yellow work dress (Radio Star Dress S$35) with folded V shaped lapels and a skater skirt.
 
White chiffon blouson (Ryder Top S$19) that goes with practically any style of skirt, jeans or even shorts.
 My favourite piece of this collection is this midi skirt in passion red (Miss Liberty Skirt S$29). It's a bold and flattering colour. The skirt has a full shape and the material looks and feels luxurious.
 A pretty pink gingham dress (Freedom Gingham Dress $39) for casual days. It has buttons all the way down the front and ribbon tie shoulder straps. It's a pretty dress that is oh so comfy.
