Silk maxi dress

What I didn't tell you in the previous post was that I bought some materials. Not for raya, but for..... hmm stock.  Haha. My pantry of kain deserves another post of its own, but oh another time! 

Anyways, I bought some beautifulllll silk and chiffon materials that day. The colours, oh my, the colours!  From vibrant blue and greens to pastel yellow and pinks. I don't know how people get to keep their head calm in there. 

So, I went in, alone, into my candy-land. Husband couldn't joined me because he had to judged a moot at UITM. An arrangement that both of us couldn't be more than happy about. He gets to sit out of "Sayang, which one is nicer?" questions and I get to shop without restriction. Haha. 

I have been wanting to get my hands on some good quality silks for a while now. So, I went straight to the first floor where all the silks and chiffons are. 

And about an hour and a half later, I came out with two paper bags. -___- I shall not disclose the damage done for fear that my husband reads this. :p 

Anyways, one of the materials is a vibrant-coloured paint-brushed-patterned silk. I initially wanted to make a modern kurung, but after a quick conversation with my friend, Dayana and of course, some googling, I decided to make a long simple dress instead. 

This is the kain;

And these are the inspirations; 

Cantik kan? Can't wait to send this baby to the tailor. But first, to lose some weight. And that is another annoying journey of its own. Haha.

Fashion Styles: Blouse

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 3…

Hello Rizman Ruzaini, Bye Bye Syaiful Baharim!

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.


Kak S: Who's your designer nanti?

Me: Syaiful Baharim..

Kak S: Oh, Syaiful. Di…


Inspired by my friend's wedding saree, I went searching for this beautiful material.

And look at what I found!

This one! 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'…
