Thanks to popular media like ‘Confessions of a Shopaholic’, people often feel scared to own and use a credit card. When I was told I would need to use one, I feared for my savings.Read More
A very proud moment for the Brunei fashion scene this year, as Kava and Humaira braved the stage and showed their work on the KL Fashion Week Runway.
I’m sure this has taken a large amount of time in preparation for this competition, and to my eyes, they are winners, because they have SHOWN the world that Brunei has talent.
Kava by Siti Nazmah
Kava was expressing her vision of what modest street fashion is like. It takes skill to present an all-black collection, and she mastered it by adding sporty details, as well as mixing prints and textures into the loose-fitting design for an instant seasonal edgy update. And how could I not love the printing work at the back? Talk about #back-gasm!
Humaira's collection went for the deconstructed design, which is a huge trend this season. She also went for a preppy anime-esque vibe with her styling! Obsessed! It is also impressive how she was able to manipulate buttoned shirts and created a draping effect. I would want to take that bodice as part of my staple collection.
Congratulations to all of you, because this is a milestone not just for you, but for our humble abode. Keep on inspiring the youth of our nation with your creativity.
My husband and I just came back from a spectacular trip to Malacca, and we really enjoyed wandering around and getting lost in its winding roads, exploring and immersing ourselves in the local culture and history.
Packing for travel is always a struggle though, and of course at these amazing locations we want to be able to capture the moments and look our best. On top of wanting to look stylish, we needed to stay cool and comfortable in heat.
So here are some easy tips and tricks in looking chic and instagram ready for your next getaway!
Pack your headwear
To keep the sun off your face! Fedoras, headwraps, caps and full-brim hats are the perfect prop for your instragram shot while keeping you cool and avoiding heat stroke.
In my case, I opted for a turban rather than my usual hijab, so that I don’t get overheated.
Sunglasses are a necessity to protect your eyes from the sun, AND you don’t have to worry so much about your makeup throughout the day. WIN!
Wear loose and lightweight outfit
This gives your skin room to breath, and the flowiness can work in your favor for your photos.
Wear prints or colours
You may want to wear something that stands out against the breathtaking views and monuments while on your holiday.
Comfortable shoes are your friends
From the airport to the city, you’ll be on your feet. You need to wear appropriate shoes such as sneakers, loafers or riding boots. So no stilettos.
Although for a fun-sized person like me, I went for block-heel boots that aren’t too high; these have been my travel companion since our Japan trip last year.
It could be because of Nirvana music my husband played earlier and the dark weather, I was in the mood for grunge that Sunday. Giving my leathers a break, I decided to relive the genre with punch red, classic walking boots and fun striped tees (which is all the rage this season). As it was raining hard in the city, i finished it off with Aere's Leonie trench coat.
Now I am fashionably and practically prepared for the stormy weather!
