Ode to Raya

Having Hari Raya (A Muslim festival of Eid fior Malaysia) just passed, there were alot of Raya events to attend & I happen to have  limited amount of Baju Kurungs and do not want to look the same in all my photos, so I decided to go alot more formal but still a tinge of Raya themed for my meeting with some business associates for a Raya Luncheon. I choose the longest formal skirt I had, and also a beaded long sleeve top to give it the Raya vibe. The cost of this look: Top: RM59 This beaded blouse comes in 4 different size and 4 different colour, unfortunately, the one I am wearing is the biggest size I have (UK16 size). Stretchable Midi Skirt: RM89 I got this awesome stretchable skirt from a Ms. Read clearance sale in Mines Wonderland. It is super comfortable and straight away makes my look so formal. The only downside to this skirt is that I am too short to ever wear this skirt with flats or even a low heel. I have to whip out my tallest heel for this skirt to make my body look longer instead of being swallowed up by […]

Laid Back Wednesday

This particular post, I would like to show an office outfit that will suit an everyday woman, as not everyone wants to dress up in the latest fashion everyday. So how do you still make sure you do not look too old fashion in your easy office clothes? First I would recommend choosing a good pair of black pants.

The cost of this look: Top: RM69 A good blouse is important, in fact, having many good blouses are important. I would usually throw on a nice blouse with a pair of pants if I am lazy to dress up or know I might be moving around alot on that day. I would usually choose a blouse with an interesting neckline so I can opt not to accessories and still look good. Stretchable Tight Pants: RM99 As mentioned above, having at least 1 pair of black pants is important to every wardrobe. I think this is my only black pants now and it has a casual demin look due to the brown stitches. We […]

Boss in Red

Red has always been associated with passion, power & confidence, and that is why red is the perfect colour for a lady boss who demands respect and attention in the office. So if I have an important presentation I need to give, I will definitely go for red or a similar bright colour so I would be that someone you would remember in a crowd. Also introducing the famous peplum! The extra piece of fabric around the waist or hip area that sometimes looks like a tutu or a mermaid’s fins. Still going strong as a signature piece in every office lady’s wardrobe, I really do think that this fashion statement does give an air of high status to the person wearing a peplum design. I have heard many say that they do not suit peplum but I do think it is something you must try, as there are many types of peplums out there and even I cannot carry all types of peplums as some will just turn me into a big ass hippo. However, I have found that short peplums work for me and does make my outfit appear more formal and give my dress a tailored look. The cost of this […]
