Vivi inspired cat hat

Posted on November 16th, by ml editors in Reviews. No Comments

These kitty hats are all the rage lately ever since they appeared in Vivi magazines in Japan. We understand though. Who could resist them! They are so cute!

Even though they are perfect for fall, you can wear them too as a fashion statement in Malaysia. We went out and bought a hat for er… testing purposes from Oh Temptations, a boutique that is really filled up with many other irresistible items!

We bought the a red devil’s ear cap for RM45. The only downside is that the website is pre-order so you have to wait two weeks after each batch for your items to arrive. But is the wait worth it?

Yes it is! The hat is very good quality, and it is made of wool felt. As you can see, the hat arrived without any dents of bents in the shape and was … Read More »



Shop overseas online

Posted on October 30th, by ml editors in Reviews. No Comments

We are used to shopping on online boutiques that are based in Malaysia. Today I am going to show you some websites that are based internationally that also ship to our shores ^.^

1. Etsy

Etsy is THE place to shop for one of a kind, handmade, vintage items. You can buy just about anything that can be handmade, jewellery, bags, clothes, supplies, etc. The best thing about Etsy is that the item that you buy would probably not be available for sale anywhere else.

2. ASOS

Asos is pretty self explanatory. This online retail giant with its own label has free shipping worldwide and regularly goes on sales, driving shopaholics crazy.

3. ModCloth

ModCloth is one of our favourite places to go window shopping, even if our wallets are really light. Their items are always quirky, fun and refreshing. To sum it all up, everything … Read More »



How to dress for Fall 2012 in a tropical country

Posted on October 29th, by ml editors in Fashion. No Comments

We are blessed (or cursed, depending how you look at things) with brilliant sunshine all year round. However, we still follow overseas’ trends closely as fashion changes every quarter to welcome the new season. Since it’s fall now, but it is not like we can walk around in fur coats and trench coats, here are some ways to adapt the fall trend into our wardrobe in sunny Malaysia.

1. Loose slouchy sweaters

To avoid looking like you just stepped off a plane from Europe, and also simmering in our very hot country, make sure your sweaters are breathable, meshy, and not too thick, or pair it with shorts for a nice contrast.

Bought cheongsams in Malaysia

Posted on October 21st, by ml editors in Reviews. No Comments

After September, it is normally wedding season. Or maybe it is just me. Anyway, some of these wedding themes and dress codes especially for the Chinese community in Malaysia, can come in the form of “Shanghai Night”. That is in fact, one of the themes being explored by one of my friends for her upcoming nuptials, and in a panic, I had to secure a cheongsam for the dinner.

Shopping for a cheongsam is really no easy feat in Malaysia. The ones that are sold in brick and mortar shops, or specialty cheongsam shops, can be ridiculously pricey. Don’t get me wrong though. The quality of the cheongsams being sold at the specialty Chinese costume shops can be of great quality and workmanship.

However, the problem is that cheongsams are more of a “one off” dress for me. I am not going … Read More »

It’s the end of the year so prom season and annual dinners are here. Here are some great dress up ideas in order for you to look great on your big night

1. Staying safe on the black side

Black doesn’t have to be boring and this black number, with a little sheer sexy detail at the back is perfect! Just add some formal jewelry, and do up your hair and you will look great. This is RM49.90 from Little Miss Q

This black tube gown from Beauty Myth is selling at only RM60

It’s a “shoe-in” for Thursday!

Posted on October 11th, by ml editors in Fashion, Reviews. No Comments

Shoes really make a lady. Picture a strong, confident, sexy young lady in a tight black dress, and a tall sharp stiletto heel. Doesn’t that just ooze confidence and sexiness? The shoes you pick and wear have an ability to turn your blah outfit into an “oohlala” outfit.

Lush Serendipity has a wide array of pre-order shoes for your selection.  The leopard print bootie pretty much caught my eye and it would be PERFECT for fall – RM89. And they also have statement leopard wedges for RM89 as well. This could go well if you pair it with a simple outfit –  please do not clash animal print with animal print! I also like the simple yet elegant black bootie for RM89

Public shoes which has just recently been added into our database in Morelook.com (*waves hello!), has a great variety of … Read More »

Fashion Review: Necklaces between those collarbones

Posted on December 5th, by ml editors in Fashion, Reviews. No Comments

Spotted! Miss Selfridge Pink Charm Necklace from Glossy Amor – RM32

I would DEARLY love to have this very unique necklace in my accessories closet. It’s a intricate, delicate piece that also makes a statement at the same time. J’adore.

Mini Bearbrick necklace from Mirumiru – RM45

These sweet little bears are attached on a chain. I believe, their limbs are adjustable.  Super kitschy!

Hoop feather earrings – RM35 a pair from Pinggu Monster

These feather hoop earrings are the perfect pair for that hobo-Nichole Richie look. Plus they are all the rage right now. I  like this pair in a deep majestic purple shade but there are other colours available

Chunky leaves necklace from The Summer’s Attic – RM26

What better way to make a rock & rollin’ statement by rolling out in yesterday’s tee shirt, a pair of skinny jeans, that 10 year old Converses … Read More »
