New Hair

After having long hair for a couple of years..I decided it's time for a new look! So I head up to the hair salon and say snip it! And here I am with my new look:) Still find it's hard to believe that's me in the mirror!
This hairdo looks pretty chubs in a beanie hat! (Borrowed from Michelle from La Belle!)

Red Envy

Knotty Frenzy


And the latest new arrivals we have today is my favourite Knotty pieces like Kerrie and Kathleen dresses and tops!
Initially, we tried 1 knot and by sheer chance we knotted another one on our paper pattern and sewed it together and the results was prettier than we imagined and we decided this will be the final look!
Kathleen dress comes in Sunshine yellow checks, Ash Brown checks, Navy Cupra and Cement Grey Cupra fabric as well! And best of all, they each come with contrasting reversible handmade belts and they are fully lined and with our favourite dress accessory: POCKETS!

Behind the Scene- Dreams of Pandora

I totally missed out sharing some behind the scenes pictures of the shoot with you guys! Firstly, the shoot could never go on so smoothly and well without a few wonderful people! I'll start with Karyn from Tsilli first:) She so generously showed her beautiful home to us and granted us a peek into her enchanting world!
Here I am with Emily our bubbly model from Perth and Karyn herself!
And our hero of the day was Tommie the puppy who stole the limelight and appeared as a star in many of our pictures!
I have my most trusted makeup artist Yanti who always work her magic on the models and she is honestly real fun to hang around with!
How can a shoot go on without accessories?! Here we have a great range which you have seen in our look book all from Icing Accessories!
And here is a final shoot of everyone involved! Warren you're the genius seriously:)
Thank you guys so very much:) I had a ball of time that day!!!

One of a Kind



He is really funny and so smart about his observation!
Love the way he sees education in another light:)

Colour Punch


"I use colour like a punctuation mark in a sentence, really.
I think colours is optimistic, it makes you smile."


"You can always get the balance between things that are wearable but still have personality and a point of view."

What are we eating?



Over the weekend I was in KL for a work trip and on my way back I caught Food.inc on the bus as the rest were either horror, romance or comedy. Food as we call know is something we can't leave without. So this entry is totally non-fashion related but super reflective as to how we have been perceiving our food, what goes behind the process of the nicely packed meat we get and honestly after this show, I am disgusted (Pardon my harsh words) with how I never once questioned where our food came from or how they are made, how the animals are treated and how beneficial is it to our body and our whole nature life cycle.

Really, is what we are eating normal or can we be part of the change to help our world?
I am ready for the change:)

His Words

He won't be offended if he sees you destroy your very expensive Marc Jacobs collection pieces.

Sometimes we get very giddy and we start making things that really look like fashion-show clothes. And I say, “I have to believe that someone I know would wear this.” It’s just not enough to like some concoction. I’m not interested in making stuff for museums; I want the clothes to be worn. I don’t care if the girl sits on a curb in them after a party and they’re destroyed. I have to believe that there’s going to be a life for these things. Otherwise, I wouldn’t send them down the catwalk.


The quote above by Marc Jacobs is really reflective of what the women of today really want.


Breakfast Glory


If you're a breakfast lover or even if you're not, you have to visit Wild Honey at Mandarin Gallery for their SUPERB breakfast delights served all day! This morning, Mae, Jo and I ate our hearts out at this lovely place and we left thinking we can come back for lunch and dinner too! Ha.. Thanks ladies for your awesome giggly company!
