Orked byJovian Mandagie

Jovian Mandagie is fast becoming one of my favourite designers. 

His latest collection, Orked by JM is oh-so-pretty!

I used to dislike his bridal dresses because I felt they were a bit too heavy. I prefer something simpler and more classic. I personally think that sometimes, less is more.

But lately, JM's designs, bridal and non, are simply breathtaking. He kept it simple and sleek. And that really hits the spot for me. I think his cut is really flattering for most women and I just love the silhouette that he came up with.

I say most, because, his ready made kurungs doesn't fit me perfectly because I'm shorter than average (or petite, if you want to be fancy) and chubbier. My proportion is a bit off these days, haha.

The name Orked is apt for this collection, since every design feels very feminine. The soft, flowy lines and the pastel colours are just so beautiful. It is very difficult to resist this one.

When it came out, I was on the website, patiently waiting for it to load. There were so many that I love and wanted to put in my cart. But, I resisted. And after checking the sizing, I felt a bit better, because it wouldn't fit me perfectly.

The next day while at work, I took a look again. Saw a dress that I missed the night before and instantly felt in love. Checked the sizing and to my delight, it would fit me well. Except for the length, obviously. I thought about it for a while, battling between my needs and wants :p

Well, my wants won. Safe to say that I'll be picking up my dress on the release date at the Tesco nearest to my place.

This Jovian is surely something. No woman can resist his designs. He's powerful alright! Sorry husbands out there. Hehe.

For all of you who haven't gotten your hands on Orked by JM, share me some tips on self control.

Olsou Mint, I can't wait to see you!

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'…
