If you have been following me on
this blog, you’d probably know that I’m such a girly girl. I just love being a
girl. Seriously, what’s not to love? We have the best in fashion. Fashion is
dedicated to us, women! From hair bands and clips to shoes and stockings, and
everything in between.
I had many fashion phases growing
up. The “Clueless” inspired fashion; checkered pants, preppy blouses and small
furry backpacks, short dresses with platforms ala Baby Spice and so much more.
But, as I grow older, I stuck to a classic and simple style. My husband loves
it when I’m dressed in a simple skinny jeans/pants and blouse. And that has been my staple since I got married.
I admit – I would love to be more adventurous in my styles (like in my younger
days) but I don’t think my husband can tolerate that. Lol.
Over the years of experimenting,
I have learned what’s good on me and what’s not, what I like and what I
dislike. I prefer blouses; smart casual mostly to cotton tshirts. After turning
Shocking kan? After my last post on Syaiful Baharim.
So what happened?
Ok, yesterday evening me and mom went to Jakel to get the lace. Sampai je Jakel, pegi la kat tingat kain exclusive tu, focus hanya untuk mencari lace. I wanted a simple, CHEAP, non-beaded lace. Any kind, asalkan cantik. The SA who helped us, who happens to be the owner and Mom's friend, mestilah tunjuk yang beaded Solstiss je. Without a doubt, Solstiss lace IS exquisite. Memang tengok muka automatically berseri-seri, bibir tersenyum-senyum. But, boy, the price! MasyaAllah..!
I was actually quite good; I actually said NO because the laces that she showed me are all very expensive, jenis ribu2 PER METRE! And I was looking to buy 4 metres of lace! So I said to Kak S (the owner), I prefer the simpler one, no beads, tak payah la Solstiss2 ni. So, she showed me some, plain, simple and sweet, I didnt have a problem getting just that.
Inspired by my friend's wedding saree, I went searching for this beautiful material.
And look at what I found!
This one just.takes.my.breath.away.! It's white and heavily beaded, perfect for a simple baju kurung. I would probably use this for my akad nikah. That is if I had another chance of doing my wedding all over again :p
This light brown+gold-ish sheer saree screams GLAMOROUS! Imagine that for your reception dress, with some gold detailing, you can be one glamorous bride! *love*
I love this grey beaded saree as well. Very very chic! And the best thing about grey? It matches a lot of other colours to bring out different moods.
Like if you pair it with this pink saree for your bridemaids/entourage/family members, you'd achieve a very chic but sweet look.
Just look at that detailing at the bottom! That's just grand!! I would probably use this for my tunang. Oh, or baju raya also nice! Hmmmm...*thinking*
The last two sarees would be nice either for an engagement do'…
