Fierce. . . hehe.

Welcome to the new followers & much thanks for all your lovely words. Truely humbled. I've been trying to put up a new post since the last one. But you happens. So I went to an interview yesterday, friday the 25th, it was a position of an assistant financial manager with a leading fashion brand.I totally love the idea of doing what makes you want to wake up in the morning everyday and getting paid for it is just a reward. So, as a good friend always says to me 'There is a million ways to make a million', I am so eager to learn as much as I know. Hope I get the job...
Happy, peaceful & epic weekend to all you loveli people

21st Century Girl

Recently, I have been into the whole minimalist look. Sometimes the garmet should be able to speak for itself. A good fitted outfit is better than a plain outfit with an abundance of accessories in my opinion.
Clothing, now days, has the effect of speaking without actually saying anything. I have tried to track down Jeffrey Campbell shoes in South Africa as well as Loubies but to no avail. Had this convo with a friend at a braai (bbq) recently, and we came to a conclusion that its not that in Africa we don't know much about designers, we don't really have stores that are offered in high fashion/trendy fashion at a specific price bracket. We don't have the Zara, New Look, Forever 21 etc etc...that the Americas/ European countries have and we have come to a point where there is no authenticity with African designers anymore. Even, if that is not a problem, in Malaysia you could have the latest trends available in your normal type of shops its not such a big deal that you have to go to the 'known' retailers.
Is Africa not at par with the fashion capitals yet?

I may be bad, but I'm perfectly good at it. . .

Skirt: YDE, Boots: Aldo Top & Accesories :Monsieur Le Price

I would be lying if I said I 'recently' became fixated with chunky jewellery and necklaces. Truth is, I always feel two ways about it, it can either be 'too much' or 'too little' .So onto the necklaces, I love the take on primitive-glam-rocker-hobo-religious-punk that it exudes. I have been collecting whenever I see them and my philosophy with some purchases especially refering to clothes is...'If you don't buy now, you will regret later..' and even though I say this I have been at the regret side a lot. More like, I always think will that go with anything I  have. When I should be asking, Where's my PLASTIC  at ?

Don't be a drag, just be a queen. . .

Wearing: Krush Culture mesh Vintage dress, Aldo Patent Black shoes

. . .Whether you're broke or evergreen

                                              You're black, white, beige, chola descent

                                                       You're Lebanese, you're orient

                                                           Whether life's disabilities

                                                 Left you outcast, bullied, or teased

                                                      Rejoice and love yourself today

                                                  'cause baby you were born this way. . .'
Yes, I am quoting Lady Gaga. I do love her despite what people say. I find her amusing. Sort of like how I find flamboyant people. Amusing. Refreshing.Unique. People, are too 'safe' and I love how she can wear UNDERWEAR with some stockings and heels and hold her head up high. Ke$ha is garabage-chic different...there is no taste there!!! However, she relays the same message We are who we are.
I am in conflict with myself, over my blog, I just wanted it to be that blog, where you ooh-and-ahh over different ways to wear something and regarding to style in general. BUT, I decided that this would just represent one-side to how I view fashion and thats only the aesthetics...what about pressing issues in fashion, DIYs on how to make things (fashion and food), events, inputs and creating more of a forum? In time, just would like to welcome firstly the new followers and people who just browse through the blog. Take the next step and follow, there is no pre-nup however there is no divorce either. . .

...Everybody dies, but not everybody lives. . .

1. Jason Wu inspiration 2 & 4. Krush Kulture dress and Aldo patent leather stilettos 3.Sushi & Kiwi Martini

                                                                                 Jason Wu
<3  Manhattan-based Taiwanese American fashion designer, recently made famous by Michelle O, he used to design dolls so he comes from making very intricate designs and is inspired by a collision of old and new. His attention to detail is thrilling. Really some one to look forward to...the picture is a collage of his inspiration to which he made his new collection...vintage inspired, lace, forward thinking. Think Paris 1960s. I think Visionary.
                                                                                 What I am wearing
Krush Kulture...the name that you will be hearing for some time to come, before I reveal anything I want you to be familar with the name. Best kept secret. Perhaps. These Also pumps are this seasons more than one look shoes...everyone needs a pair of shoes that can go with everything and anything.

                                                                                   Sushi anyone?
This picture is actually from Valentines day, had the most amazing sushi and Kiwi Martini evver. Was I just in a good mood. Perhaps. But do try it out from Rhapsody's. Good Ambiance.Good Food. Private.
