Monday Mix (Yes, I’m Late But What’s New)

You know, I’m starting to think I should rename this series, “Tuesday Treats”.  Apt, yes? (from top to bottom) Medusa Cashmere Sweater from Nihan, Comic Book Strip Skirt from Vintage South Austin, just glorious Hand-Painted Wing Scarf from Shovava, Futuristic Metallic Leather Ankle Booties from Nanometer, and now, my personal fave, a Vintage Gold & Silver Articulated Mouse Necklace (the cute little thing measures 7″ long!!), and she’s MINE.  You really need to check out Story Book Vintage, Meghan has some really awesome treasures waiting to be loved. Love, SG

Monday Mix (First of 2013 And I’m Late)

Sue me 😀 (from top to bottom) B&W Silk Chiffon Shift from Luminaa, just an incredible work of art in the form of a Felted Fox de Luxe Scarf from Celapiu, an avant garde Faux Black Leather with Crochet Bag from the talented hands of VandH; and, BE STILL MY BEATING HEART, a visual feast from Nortin, shoe gods from Greece, purveyors of custom-made opulence for the feet. And just so you know, I’m adding all these to my list of I’LL DIE BEFORE I DON’T PURCHASE THESE pieces for 2013. Love, SG

Acquisitions, Acquisitions, Acquisitions

Let me clarify that I am NOT a brand snob.  Nope, nope, nope.  I love and covet, with equal levels of lust, both indie labels as well as haute couture treasures.  And, let’s be honest, most of us can’t afford to dish out that sort of money for luxury pieces, even as we continue to live in hope.  Which is why the accessibility proffered by the likes of Etsy and eBay are priceless beyond, well, price tags. This authentic and genuinely amazing Vintage Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Denim Jacket was a gift from my man for Christmas. So too this glorious Fabric + Snakeskin + Crocodile Bag from Cavalli.  I am blessed to have married someone who understands and indulges in my “hoarding”.  Both the Westwood and Cavalli were purchased here. Now this beautiful Isabel Marant Mesh Tank Dress isn’t vintage but it’s gorgeous and so versatile.  Can you believe this is my very first garment from the House of Marant?  Yes, I am hanging my head in shame.  Purchased from a diehard aficionado of IM …

2012 ~ Rewind, Recap, Review

This is the time of the year when many a blogger would post a montage of her (or his) personal favourites spanning 2012.  Since I’ve only been at this for a scant two months, I’ve barely sufficient outfit posts to fill up a week let alone encapsulate an entire year SO I’m taking an entirely different route to this.  I’m going to feature the outfits I like best from twelve random bloggers.  Some are a tad more hyped than the others, and certainly their aesthetics run the gamut but all are irrefutably talented and adventurous and most deserving of limelight. So here we go, in no particular order:- Adeline Rapon pulls off mixed prints with panache which, oftentimes (but not always), only the French can display.  Her style is so distinct and whimsical yet not so out there that I can’t imagine myself wearing parts of the outfit, or, the outfit in its entirety, for that matter.  And there’s also just a nuance of vintage that makes her fashion compositions so fresh (contradictory, I know). …

This entire ensemble is absolutely NOTHING I’ve ever worn in my entire life.  Nope, not even the boots because mine are all, err, super high?  Should I consider incorporating some lower heels?  What about you?  What kind of shoes do you prefer? Love, SG

What A Girl Wants ~ 12 Party Dresses

So seeing how it’s the twelve day of the twelve month of the year twenty twelve, I’ll be uploading 12 posts across the next few days.  Yes yes, I really need to get my act together and be organised.  And I know I was supposed to post pictures of my interpretation of Monday Mix but that will come later in the week, pinkie swear.

Oh Me, Oh My Malaysia, Making Me Proud

It would appear that fashion has (finally) permeated the walls of what was once an incredibly conservative, tight-lipped community and I. Am. Glad. Stunning ~ photo courtesy of 4Eyes. And all the following images, proudly showcasing a fondness for the flamboyant and a healthy addiction to shoe porn, were taken from homegrown street style blog, Garbagelapsap.  So proud. Makes my heart go boom boopity boom. Happy.  Very happy. Love, SG
