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.

Posted on November 9th, by ml editors in Fashion. No Comments

 

What do you think about sneakers with platforms in them? Some people cry a resounding NO, but if they were so pretty like these Isabel Marant ones? Would you wear them?

These shoes have pretty much developed a cult following and look great with shorts, skinnies, leggings and skirts.

Giselle Bundchen

Chiara Ferragni

Miranda Kerr

These sneakers are mostly made of a combination of suede and leather and range from about 340 pounds to 390 pounds depending on the design and material (close to RM2000).

Would you wear them?

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.

Top ten fashion crimes you can commit

Posted on October 24th, by ml editors in Tips. 1 Comment

A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous – Coco Chanel

The famous quote by the late great Coco Chanel certainly has a lot to do with our article today! Although rules are always meant to be broken when it comes to fashion, there are certain principles that should always be adhered to when it comes to fashion. Here are ten fashion faux pas that leaves Coco Chanel cringing and the classy fashion police running to arrest you for.

1. Visible panty line

Imagine this. You are wearing a beautiful, sexy, skin tight dress that clings to your every curve. Fellow admirer’s glances look appreciatively onto your fabulous style, until they reach your derriere. They can see the outline of your underwear and probably tell you the exact shape of your bottom. Sometimes they can even tell you what colour your underwear … 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 »

There’s honestly no greater confidence booster than looking great When you look great, you stand up taller, and you will eventually smile more, and your day eventually becomes better. Take each moment as it comes, and always strive to be a better person, inside and out.

Polka dot simple dress RM70

The next boutique that I discovered … Read More »
