emel by Melinda Looi

I gotta be honest. When I first saw that Melinda Looi's RTW is coming to Fashion Valet, I dismissed it. Totally. I actually went "Meh, not interested!"

But, despite my non-interest, I actually went to the website to check it out. And mannnn, I underestimated Melinda Looi! 

Her collection for Raya 2013 is so cantik! I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the line up. 

And the great thing about her collection is that a portion of the proceeds will go to a charity called PERNIM. That's Persatuan Kebajikan Anak Pesakit HIV/Aids Nurul Iman Malaysia. 

I googled PERNIM and learned that it is an NGO that helps the children of HIV/AIDS patients. So the money they get, will be used for the kids education, health and what not. 

I think it's great that Melinda Looi is using her creative talent to raise funds for charity. I'm embarrassed that I even think that she can't come up with a good collection and even more since she's doing this to help out others! Ahhh, sorry Melinda *malu* 

So, if you want to help out while having fun (c'mon shopping is fun!), pre-order Melinda's RTW now at FV

Here are my favourites. 

Prices range from RM380 to RM450. Very reasonable, I think since tailoring these days would cost almost the same. 

So, go on DO GOOD and LOOK GOOD!

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'…

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…

Be Prepared on Your Wedding Day!

So useful, this!

Print this and give a copy to your maid of honour/best friend/sister or whoever that will be close to you on your big day.

Often, brides forget the food and drink bit, but trust me, have some snack handy. Because you WILL be hungry. And don't forget straws! You don't want to ruin your lipstick :p

Okay, everything else is self explanatory.

You're welcome!
