1st attempt on summer fashion

Remember my previous blog entry I wrote about trying to make more of an effort to dress up and follow current trends? Well here is my 1st attempt!

Image

I’m trying the print + bright colours.. although it really isn’t so bright but it is definitely way brighter than my usual blacks!

Image

My floral blouse is from Thimble. It’s really quite simple but so comfortable! Thimble is actually located in Bangsar Telawi 3, it is pretty much opposite from my own boutique but that does not make us arch enemies! We are actually friends who really support each others business because we both sell completely different items and cater to different age groups! Furthermore, they are really creative and design everything themselves, unlike me who source everything from everywhere!

My jeans are bought in Tokyo from a chain store called Anap. It was only 1000 Yen! What a bargain. Its a baby blue colour with splashes of colourful paint on it. It is also really ripped from wearing them too often as they are so comfy and I also have a thing for clothing with cuts and holes! (you’ll see soon enough)

Image

I made an effort to put make up! YAY *pats self on the back*. You can’t really see it in pictures but I actually have quite a bit of make up on. It looks quite light in the photo but I felt really over done, mostly due to the fact that in daytime I usually wear only eye liner and mascara or nothing at all. I made an exception and went all out with power and blush this time! Haha

(The real reason I dressed up and made up is because I was filming something that day… at least I tried to keep the theme summer-ish!)

Summer

While the rest of the world get excited for summer fashion, I stand and stare at my closet thinking what shall I wear today? (with as little enthusiasm as finding dog poo in your room). If you know me personally, you will know that my daily staples are shorts a t shirt and havaianas. I used to look forward to dressing up for different seasons back in my Melbourne days but I guess the motivation is just not there anymore. The reason why i’ve lost my enthusiasm for dressing up in general is because I have been back in KL for the past 3 years and the heat is just so normal it does not excite me or motivate me to dress up for 4 short months of sun sea and surf. Another reason being that Malaysians in general don’t really make an effort to dress up (unlike our Singaporean neighbours) and when we do, we get starred at by all these perverts like they’ve never seen girls before. On top of that, it is not exactly the safest place to dress like a skank or wear short skirts/shorts/tops/low tops especially with all these rape/abduction cases in car parks… and I am pretty sure it is illegal?

Nevertheless I have decided that i’ve been waaaayyy too slack in the dress up department. I only make an effort if i’m going for an event or weddings and the clubs (although many have seen me in converse, shorts and a tank sans make up. While the rest of the girls all look like barbie dolls HAH). I should make more of an effort especially since I work and own a boutique (yes I wear shorts and slippers to work and look like I should just stay at home and not be seen, don’t judge me!)

So here are some looks I like and would like to channel.

Firstly, I think I need to wear bolder colours and more prints! If you take a look in my closet, its pretty sad 😦

& bold prints

I guess I gotta try bold prints + bold colours too!

Image

I’ve always been a fan of the hippie-ish look, I will wear flowers in my hair… or maybe just a head band and look like a red indian. I love her heard gear, I wish it was mine. I’m 100% sure if I stepped out looking like this in Malaysia, they will think something is definitely wrong with me. How pretty does she look!

Image

And of course for my lazier days…

Image

I won’t rule out clothing for lazy people. It’s simple, effortless and still stylish. (We’ll assume she’s wearing flat shoes!)

Image

Lastly, beach wear!! (provided I get to go to the beach soon.. I was just at Sentosa Beach 2 weeks ago but I was there for the Megazip Adventures and I did wear a bikini top under my T.. you’ll be glad to know it’s yellow & floral)

Image

Loving these Zimmerman 2012 collection. BEAUT!

So I think what I need to do now is toss away all the blacks and step out of my comfort zone. I WILL IGNORE ALL THE CRIES FROM MY BORING OLD CLOTHES!

I’ll update you lot of my efforts and you can judge me then.
