Knits And Prints

Knits And Prints

Being in South East Asia, not many people know about MSGM. Thanks to an Italian designer, Massimo Giorgetti, this brand was launched in 2009 and had been making so many vibrant prints and playful pieces. MSGM is so well known in Europe and had expanded to America. Now, I'm hopeful that it will expand towards Asia too. 

I was very fortunate to stop by Hong Kong lsat month and head over to their very first flagship store in Asia. Of course, I bought a few pieces and one of them includes this midi skirt that I'm wearing here. I've previously worn a top and a skirt (post here and here), which I bought from the same store too. Now that I'm back home in Kuala Lumpur, I guess I would have to shop MSGM online again.

Have you heard of MSGM and own any pieces from them?

Summer's Not Over

Summer in Hong Kong

Summer will never be over on my side of the world! It's tropical weather all year round (sigh). OK, some might think I'm lucky to have this weather all year round but you know what, grass is always greener on the other side. I would love to enjoy the 4 seasons so that I can wear boots and go out with layers upon layers. But then again, when I look at the short shorts, mini skirts and stilettos, I think I'm pretty lucky to enjoy this weather most of the time. Oh well, you know what they say, "Grass is always greener on the other side".

I'm fickle like that. I'm a woman! Gosh..don't tell me I'm the only one who has this going on in my head. Here's an outfit I wore when I stopped by Hong Kong for a few days about a month ago. Time just flew by so quickly! I just realized I've not posted these pictures. 

Are you still experiencing summer weather over at your place?

Ombré Hair

Remember I mentioned here about thinking for a long time to get an Ombré hairstyle? Some called it balayage ombré. I finally DID it last week!! If you would have followed me on Instagram and Snapchat (stilettoesdiva), you might have seen my new hairstyle already. It's a mixture of grayish blue and brown. I loved it!

Yea, it's on the drier side and a bleached hair will always be a little damaging especially at the end. I've paid a visit to the salon to do my first treatment yesterday and I guess I'll do it again next week. I believe this will be a weekly thing so that the color will be protected and my hair will not damage any further.

Do you have ombré hair? Any tips for home care to share with me?

Thank you for reading my blog. Wishing you a great Thursday =)

Red Alert

Top - BCBGMaxazria

When I received an invitation from Marie Claire Malaysia to celebrate their 21st anniversary, I was ecstatic! Till I saw the theme - RED ALERT. So, I went erm....what should I be wearing?!! I had a red dress but I've worn it previously to another occasion. Then, I tried to browse through my tops and realized I don't have a single red top! Yea...talking about alert.

After that, I went online shopping! *all smiles* I decided to shop at Shopbop because the delivery is still the fastest to Malaysia. Problem solved when I found this top from BCBGMaxazria. It fitted so well with a Karen Millen skirt which I bought some time ago. I believe this is a great investment as I can see myself wearing this top in a few more ways =)

Have you done any online shopping recently? What's your latest purchase?

Indeed Hydraluron Moisture Jelly

Indeed Hydraluron Moisture Jelly is free from paraben, oil, fragrance and coloring. The jelly contains Hyaluronic Acid, which helps maintain moisture, and Patch H2O which also helps immediate and long-lasting moisture. It also has Fucogel which allows long term binding of water and moisture which would create a protective film for our skin.

It is uniquely packaged in a transparent container with neon pink piping-like surrounding the top. To ensure the best result of the product, it dispenses the perfect amount needed by just pressing down the white top. Have a look at the video and you'll know what I mean.

I've been given the chance to try this product for almost two weeks now. The texture feels like jelly or a thicker version of serum. One press and it's sufficient for my face and neck area. This product doesn't make my skin feel greasy or oily. It absorbed very quickly too. It worked great on combination skin like mine. Though it's rich in formula, it definitely felt clean, light and refreshing on my skin. All I can say is that "Indeed really knows what is good indeed" =)

How To Change Your Looks With Shoes

10 ways to wear Melissa Shoes
// 10 Ways To Wear Melissa Shoes // 
I believe that shoes are very important in our lives. Gorgeous shoes are great when we need it to complement our looks. The cliché is that comfortable shoes doesn't always look good. I beg to differ. Look at these shoes from Melissa. They're what I called a good marriage between comfort and style. I can wear a pair of Melissa shoes for so many different occasions. By using 4 pairs of shoes from their Fall/Winter 15 collection, I have styled it in 10 different ways. 

Tell me, which is your favorite?

Blank Space // Diva In Me

I'm currently into everything white. White has always been a pretty challenging color to wear for me. Especially when I need to take OOTD pictures. I do need to look for a darker background to make the white outfit stand out. Though, I can't stop thinking about these few tops and dresses!

What do you think about white outfits?

Ombré Adoption

Ombre Adoption
// Picture from Pinterest // 
I've been wanting to get an ombre hairstyle for a while now. Or maybe it has been almost half a year between yes and no. What's the struggle you might ask? These 4 points keep repeating in my head:
  • EFFORT - to keep my hair hydrated with home treatment and twice a month salon visit for intensive treatment. I would probably need to visit the salon for extra services too. Such as color touch up from time to time. Do I really want to put in that effort?
  • PATIENCE - again, to do home treatment once a week. I've researched a few products which might be useful such as this from Alterna Moisture Mask and Kérastase Intensive Mask. Do I have the patience to do that?
  • SALON - looking for the right salon and hairstylist isn't easy. This is not about a one-time-deal. The hairstylist should be smart enough to recommend the right color, provide the right information for home care and overall care for my needs more than what goes into her wallet. Will I be able to trust someone to do that or ever found someone who can do a good job?
So, here are some of my favorite ombré hairstyle. If you have more advise, please share with me how I can take care of ombré hair without damaging my hair.

Cold Shoulder

Sunglasses - Miu Miu

It might be a little late for me to pick up this trend but I definitely found the top that I like most of all. I've seen many huge-following bloggers wearing off-shoulder dresses and tops many months ago. I searched high and low to pick the right one for myself but failed most of the time. 

I saw this one on Blaire (here) and thought it was really nice. Bought and tried it but it was so uncomfortable so I sent it back! Then I saw this on Nicole (here) and then a few more on Pinterest.  Finally I found this one from Tibi and loved it so much! I'm a believer of comfort when it comes to fashion. You wear the apparel and bring the style out of them. Not the other way around. 

Do you like an off-shoulder top?

The Grey Days

Sunglasses - Miu Miu

Recently, the air condition in Kuala Lumpur isn't the best. It is hazy and the pollution has reached a very high index of 116! A good quality air level reads from 0-50. You can only imagine how unhealthy our air is right now. 

In order to brighten my days a little, let's match the outfit with a pair of bright color shoes. This pair of Melissa shoes are not just comfortable, it's great for my feet especially when I need to do some errands. Since sneakers are very popular these days, this pair is definitely for keeps! =)

Melissa Love System is now available online and in the stores (1 Utama, Pavilion and The Gardens Mid Valley). Do you do your errands with a pair of sneakers as well?

// Peptalash - Longer, Thicker, Fuller, Looking Lashes // 
Every woman dream of LONGER, THICKER, FULLER looking lashes. Yes Indeed! Peptalash is an eyelash serum which promises longer, thicker and fuller lashes many could only wish upon a star. It was clinically proven that after using Peptalash for 2 weeks, lashes appear longer, thicker and fuller. As Asians with fine and short lashes, I needed this!!

This product comes in a long, black bottle with a slim handle. All you need to do is simply stroke with it's brush from the inner corner to the end of your eyes. Do this for both upper and lower lash lines after your skincare routine, morning and night.

I tried it out for 2 weeks. There was no negative reaction nor irritation to my eyes. I could see a fuller and thicker lashes especially at the edges. Though for the length, I didn't see any difference. Peptalash definitely did a great job and for the price, I would say it's worth a try.

Rate: 4 out of 5
  • Peptalash is now available at Muse by Watson's Sunway Pyramid, Watson's KLCC, Paradigm Mall and Alamanda. 
  • Introduction Price at RM69 - until 28th September 2015

What's In My Bag?

Fashion Week's Necessities
//What's In My Bag? // 
I was suppose to write about this during KL Fashion Week but totally overlooked. *bad of me* It's still not too late to show you what I carry around with me during the fashion week craze. 

The only 2 things I missed out was the battery bank (because it was charging while I took this picture) and the sunglasses (it was on top of my head all the while). Hah!! Now, let me tell you why all these are so important in the bag. If you're ever to attend any shows at the fashion week, remember to bring an external battery bank and the cord. You'll probably need a café to charge your phone by mid day.

Tangerine Dream

Tangerine Dream
// Tangerine Dream //
I want you to check out my skirt. Hence, I kept everything else simple and clean. I totally love that tangerine touch to the skirt. At first, when I tried the skirt in MSGM, I didn't know what to match it with. Eventually, I thought to myself that the main attraction on this skirt is the tangerine pattern. That should get the limelight. This pair of Melissa shoes is the perfect fit for this skirt as it has a touch of tangerine on it too. 

Never had I dream that MSGM will open a store in Asia but they did! Their first flagship store in Asia is in Hong Kong. When I stopped by Hong Kong few weeks ago, I had to drop by and check out the store. Totally loved it! 

Do you own anything MSGM? What's your favorite from them?

KL Fashion Week - Day 3

DVF // Dior // Miu Miu
// Suit separate - DVF || Bag - Dior || Wedges - Miu Miu //
Day 3 was the very last day for me to attend KL Fashion Week. I was very, very happy to be invited to Justin Yap's show. You should check out his collection on my previous post here

I haven't had a chance to wear this DVF suit that I bought from her Spring Summer 2015 collection and I thought it was the perfect time to wear it on KL Fashion Week. I kept everything else as simple as possible. Total white is not usually my first choice because pictures will not give the apparel much justice. Unless, you manage to find a great back wall like this one and it isn't all that bad don't you think?

Justin Yap Spring Summer 2016

Justin Yap SS16 KLFW
// Justin Yap Spring Summer 2016 //
Justin Yap's Spring Summer 2016 Collection was shown at the Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week on 16th August 2015 in Pavilion KL. I was having a short conversation with him and this wise words from him stuck to me till today - "Fashion should be intuitive. When you see a piece of garment, you should know what to do with it". Hence, it's called RTW (Ready To Wear).

This season, Justin looked back where his passion began, in the late 90s bordering the new millennium. Drawing inspiration from the true minimalistic styles of the era, injecting a dose of fierceness and modernity. 

From chic day wear separates to streamlined evening wear, the collection consist of easy to wear pieces that takes you from work to play. A quintessential collection that fits the wardrobe of a modern women. "Women of today wants to look and be powerful. The collection is all about power dressing" says the designer himself.

Colors were masculine, urban and modern. Such as stone, sand, slate, navy, sage and black. Utterly not the usual palette of Justin Yap, whose known for his bright bold jewel tones. "I wanted a change this time. Fashion should be intuitive, and I work with my instincts at most times".

Luxurious light to heavy weight materials such as Italian cotton, crepe satin, silk organza, lambskin and cotton jacquard were used. Hand embellished beading details depicting the leopard pattern were seen on some of his pieces, this softening the austerity of the garments, giving them a refreshing artisanal touch.
