Surrounded by pink and tulle

Two friends are getting married (to each other) later this year and I'm going to be the maid of honour (thank you, guys!), so I've spent several days this week shopping for a dress that I can wear at the church ceremony. It has to be cream, champagne or pinkish (but not too rich of a pink like fuchsia), not full-length but not too short either, preferably not bedecked with lace, and I have to be able to tend to the bride's train and generally help her out while wearing it.

This is harder than it looks. We found one solid candidate on Wednesday, but it was way over budget and didn't look as amazing as its price would suggest.

On the bright side, this gave me an excuse to investigate almost every clothing store along Haji Lane. I was there around lunchtime on a weekday and was surprised at the number of casually-dressed shoppers who were also out and about at that time.

I'm tied up with Writers' Festival stuff this weekend, but the dress search will resume next week. If anyone has any suggestions, leave them in the comments? Everyone says Daniel Yam will have something, but that's been a bust so far.

nana & bird (Tiong Bahru, might have something vintage-y) or Soon Lee (Haji Lane). Frankly, the shopping in Singapore isn't much to write home about. Good luck.

I've already checked out Soon Lee, which had lovely clothes but nothing that quite fit the specs above. Will pop into Tiong Bahru next week – thanks for the suggestion!
