Where to buy peplum dresses in Malaysia

Posted on November 20th, by ml editors in Reviews. No Comments

Peplums are a raging trend currently. It’s really no wonder why though. The added panel around the waist does a wonderful job of adding curves to skinny people, and hides hips for curvier women who are a little insecure. All in all, they do a great job of creating the womanly silhouette.

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 »



Fashion inspiration Tuesday: Liu Wen

Posted on October 16th, by ml editors in Fashion. No Comments

Liu Wen has been my inspiration for quite some time. She is a Chinese fashion model and was born on January 27, 1988. I don’t quite know what to make of her, but I fell in love with her face; her strong features, her high cheekbones, her lovely almond shaped eyes and her rosebud lips. She is also the first model of Chinese descent to walk for Victoria Secret.

When being styled by fashion couture houses and walking for them, Liu Wen is so versatile. She does romantic so effortlessly but at the same time, she can also rock the androgynous look, before switching to minimalism with nary a twitch of effort. It is no wonder the fashion houses adore her.

 

Her street style is even more fashionable and she is always treading on the borders of cool. Liu Wen always has … Read More »



Tip of the day: Always have a white shirt at bay

Posted on October 13th, by ml editors in Tips. 2 comments

Here’s my tip of the day: Always have a white shirt at bay. I have a faint weakness for white shirts and to date, I have about 8 in my closet. Why a white shirt? A plain white shirt is the best thing that you can possibly have in your wardrobe, and possibly the most important. You can easily dress it up or down depending on the occasion and layer it with tons of other pieces that you have. The possibilities are endless!

From left, clockwise:

1. There’s nothing sexier than a simple jeans cut off with a white tee. You can ensure that your white shirt is a little off shoulder and slouchy by buying a slightly oversized one like the one above and then pairing it with a more structured short. Another alternative is to wear a more fitted white … Read More »



Gloomy Saturday: Force out the sunshine

Posted on October 13th, by ml editors in Reviews. No Comments

I know we are getting ready for a few months of rain, and cold, and gloom. It does not have to be all bad though. During a thunderstorm, there’s nothing better than sitting down with a good book and a warm cup of coffee. We have the perfect outfits for you today to coordinate your look with the slightly chilly weather.

October Origin has updated with a variety of warm jumpers and coats. Some of these are easily adaptable to slightly warmer climates. Just pair the jumper up with a pair of shorts and flats for a good contrast. I love the cable knit jumper here (perfect for the mall and the cinema and for snuggling  up to a loved one ) and the bejeweled army jacket is pretty versatile and edgy as well.

I think what is important that even … Read More »
