Marni for H&M - Brocade pant

After the brocade shirt, now I'm having my brocade pant. I have to admit I am in love with this print! It's so unique and even though bold printed pants are huge in this season, I never see any prints that's close to this. Like I said in previous a post, this print reminds me of exotic sarong which was something I was able to have access everyday. What makes me so in love with it is this new modern touch. Gorgeous print, great pant. This brocade pant has the same cutting with the peacock printed pant. They are both high-waist but different material. The material of this pants are more stiff and I found it look great with flowy tops. I'm doing a mix and match in this outfit. I don't want to make myself too masculine but I love a touch of edgy or boyish in my outfit. Therefore the best way to do that is to mix boyish items like blazer and tie with girlies pieces like sheer top and printed pant.

Peacock print, the mad bold print

I understand that pushing fashion to the limit is not for everyone, but it is definitely for me. In fact, I have my heart for bold graphics and I embrace bright colors. This season mad prints guarantee you will get a lot of attention. With everything else going simple, these mad prints can really stand out and bring the whole look to the next level. It's also most flattering with the lose and relaxed silhouette. Now where did I get these gorgeous peacock prints pants..? Well, it's not a hard question because the famous Italy brand Marni was doing the collab with H&M. Marni is always famous with the fabulous bold prints and we are lucky to be able to finally own her work without spending a fortune.
I was wearing this outfit out with a dear friend, Cathy. Double date for lunch and girls time at Tip & toe for some manicure. Ok, you might think, "wearing this outfit for lunch and manicure?". Yes, I did wear this for lunch and manicure. In fact, I pretty much dress nice (not necessary up or down) everyday other then when I'm being a lady in the house. Again, fashion has no rules and fashion should be everywhere anytime :)

Marni for H&M - Styling #2 for brocade shirt

Alright, here comes the second styling for this brocade shirt. Quite different from the first look isn't it? The first look was more young and fun, the pairing of transparent tight with knee-high tight bring the look to a great street style. Alright, so maybe some of you don't want to wear super short shorts in public. Here I come up with my second look for this brocade shirt. This look is more sophisticated and still fun. I never know sapphire blue and gold go so well together.

Marni for H&M - Styling #1 for brocade shirt

I was so looking forward for this Marni for h&m collection and was planning to drive hours to the nearest store. Too bad the nearest h&m store does not carry this line and the next store is way too far for me to drive to. I'm so lucky to meet a group of excellent girls who's willing and able to grab me a few items. Originally I was and still looking for a brocade trouser. I'm not lucky enough to find one but am lucky to be able to have this gold and purple brocade shirt. It's a very unique print that you need appreciate it in order to love it. The print remind me of the exotic sarong print. I am originally from Malaysia and trust me, this kind of print is everywhere. Marni did a little modern twist with the print and it became very different and unique. I' not sure about you but I'm in love with this! I really like the cutting of the shirt too. With such a bold print, simple cutting of the shirt is the best way to go. I just received this shirt today and can't wait to style it. Already came up with a few styling idea and I will slowly show each of them to you. As you should know, I want my clothes to be able to wear a lot of times in a lot of different styling and I believe this shirt meets the requirement :)

Floral+Pink+Ankle straps

Have you been paying attention and looking at these wonderful season trends? They are awesome! From bright color to pastel; sporty to modern romance, everything is eye catching and fun. Floral trend tends to blossom this time of year and they are all over the runways.
As for color, I am all over the pastel for this season but I'm still on the stage of searching. Already have a few items that I have my eyes on and gonna hit the "buy" button pretty soon. Will show you what I got when I get it next time. For now, I'm happy with my pink color skinny jean. Blue jean are classic but if you want to bring the category of "jeans" to the next level, then do it with color. Pastel is one of my choice and bright and rich color is right next! By the way, this jean is my own "DIY". It was an old white jean in my closet and I managed to turn it into a new one ;) So, who says we need to spend whole lot of money every season? Go to your closet and with a little of work, you can save some money and turn an old into new.
Now we come to shoes! My friends call me "shoes maniac" and I say I'm proud to be one. LOL!! One of the shoe trend for this season is Ankle Straps. They are sexy, sophisticated, and chic all at the same time. Whether a sharp stiletto or a chunky platform, these shoes can definitely help in leaving a lasting impression. I scored my first straps shoes for this season at Rock & Republic. The black and nude color-block with studs win over my heart from the first sight. Vlad says I'll say yes to anything with studs and spikes, maybe I will, and why not?
Last but not least please join me here through Google Friend (on the right), I am truly appreciate if you do :)

 
 
The pink jean is not the only DIY here in this outfit. My fierce spikes bracelet is my favorite DIY piece :)

Spring trench

Trench is one of my favorite outer wear for Fall or Spring, or any chilly day. However, sometimes it's not cold enough that you need to cover all up. This trench does have a great cutting, when I button it up and tied the waist with the belt; it actually looks like a full dress. It's still spring yet the weather is kind of warm but windy, so I decided to combined my lovely floral spring dress with this trench. Trick? I open up the trench by tied a bow at the back. How easy?!! This trench is from Jason Wu for target collection and I did hear some people complain that the shoulder part of this trench is weird on them. I don't know how it look and why you think is weird (feel free to send me a picture if you want me to have a look) but I do like the shoulder part of it. I personal have a narrow shoulder, I love how this trench has a straight cut at the shoulder and it makes a nice and modern look. If you are totally opposite with me by having wide or round shoulder, then you need a trench/coat/jacket that have a narrow shoulder cutting. It's ok if it's a little narrower than your shoulder because it'll visually narrow your shoulder too.
Last but not least please join me here through Google Friend (on the right), I am truly appreciate if you do :)

 
I love to add some spikes into my outfits, especially with the sweet and girlie outfit. A little spice doesn't hurt, right? :) I made a lot of spikes accessories and this is one of my favorite.

A few of you ask me how to tie this bow behind my trench coat. So, here it's. Sorry I'm catching a cold and temporary losing my voice so I did not speak in the video. I have a little instruction under the video post.


This bow is tied by the belt that comes with the coat. Therefore it's a harder material. Good thing about harder fabric is that the bow will stay how it's after you fix it. Basically it's just the basic way we all know how to tie a bow. Why it stay and look pretty is the after fix. As you can see I keep fixing the bow to the point that I satisfied. So, don't worry too much from the beginning, you can fix it to the way you like.

I'm wearing:
Trench from Jason Wu for target
Floral ruffle dress from bebe (I call it vintage in my closet)
Black Lita from  Jeffrey Campbell
Cream satchel from Jason Wu for target
Single spike ring from DIY (make it by myself)
