Sequins and Lolita figure hugging skirts

Sequinned clothes never die off .
But they've gotten very expensive lately , till I almost had a heart attack when I looked at some pieces of clothing over at Miss Selfridge .

Anyway , the best way to lay your hands on a more reasonably priced range is to identify which store stocks what , then when you feel like it , check the racks and keep your fingers crossed that one fine day , they will miraculously have one piece in your size .
What kind of a strategy is that ? 
One that saves you $$$$$ only if you have patience and are not too bothered about not being the first to wear it .

Dressing Paula - the sale haul

Dropped into the same Dressing Paula outlet again today . 
Gasp !
There were no more 59 ringgit dresses left . One of the salesgirls told me that when I purchased the first 2 dresses from the first store , that was Day 2 when the sale began , yet I only saw the sign put up today only ....hmmmm
Not to be deterred , I hopped to another outlet ( where I figured there would be less people ) , and yes , there was still a good variety of those 59 ringgit dresses there , of which I managed to get 2 more . Actually 3 , add on 10 ringgit to that 3rd dress .

First dress .
The box neckline peplum neoprene .
I love this dress ! It's like a cocktail dress / uniform / pinafore thingy all in one ! Took it 2 sizes down because the squeeze is much more kababoom !

Girlfriend Jacket - Perks of being a Cotton On member !

Been seeing these feminine designs all over the place , from Guess right down to those Thai street fairs .
 At Guess , you might have to cough up MYR 400 and above for it , while those street fairs ....just MYR 29 or so .

But I've been hesitant until today when I decided to utilise the shopping voucher . Anyone who signs up for their brand new membership card , on top of collecting points , is guaranteed to receive a voucher in your email you see . The catch is , you'll need to purchase above MYR 80 to redeem the MYR 30 ( just show the cashier the barcode sent to your email and that's it ) . I have absolutely no problem spending MYR 80 here ,as I have a long list of items I love from this store .

Follow up to an unexpected reaction

Yesterday , was the first time I wore the newly purchased Kitschen dress out . 
Into a sewing wholesale shop I trooped , and as I was standing alone , in one of the quiet aisles , I got a reaction that made me go get this Pink Nude scarf from Cotton On .

11 buttons long

Despite having long legs , I've never been into maxi dresses .
But it costs nothing to try , so I gathered 2 of them earlier and locked the bolt behind me . The first piece looked like crap but when I put this on .....wham !

White taboo not !

Grabbed four cotton tops from Cotton On today , with 3 of them being white because
only lately have I realised that , that colour really suits my skin tone .
While it's also the 7th day of CNY , I've got no taboo over wearing this colour at all during the period , which was a great thing seeing how it was on sale and nobody seemed to want them ....I do !
Whopeeee !

Lace lookalike playsuit

Cotton On still holds court for the best fitting playsuits that are all at once flowy , feminine and yet so outstanding in it's recognisable design and versatility .

To date , this has got to be the prettiest playsuit I've added to my wardrobe .
Long sleeves , ruffled edges on the pant leg with bell sleeves ....

Mix and match experiment - what goes with what

Because I purchase my clothes off the rack , my choice of accessories and shoes are what's gonna set me apart from another person whom I may bump into on the street wearing the exact same outfit ! 

However , since my memory is just so bad , this mix and match post is for my personal reference , but you're welcome to looksee through my mix and match experiments if you like .

Starting off with 3 outfits first , will add on if and when I feel like it ( maybe even never  ! ) . 
The rest are non matching accessories which I intend to pair together , some of which I made myself , especially when it comes to simple earrings .

Some problems with buying clothes off the rack

Problem #1 : When you prefer the back to the front

Decided to wear this Seed romper backwards . Why ?
Because , I don't really fancy round collars besides , I think the yellow poppy design is quite rarely seen , so that did it really .

Of course , when you decide to do this , some might think you've gone nuts . A short explanation will do . Because if they also own a piece at home , they'll still think you've gone loco .
The keyword boils down to " confidence " when you take this step .

Problem #2 : The " Who Wore It Better ? "nightmare

Silly jacket season

We learn a new thing every single day don't we ?
This jacket below is called a Shacket .
Yup .
S-H-A-C-K-E-T .

Why ?
Because it's a cross between a shirt and a jacket ( rolls eyes ) .
Say you decide to get one too , you can either go oversized ( which I think makes me look huger than I already am ) or go for a closer fit , which suits me .

9 white , 4 not

Nothing beats an extended weekend . It gives you more time to go ahead and earnestly get down to whatever you've been wanting to plough more effort into , which in my case , is to extend my wardrobe with more sized down casual wears , since I actually live near a beach .

 Considering how difficult they are to maintain , as well as my preference towards black , I'm surprised that I've begun picking up white pieces of clothing .

Listing down the haul below .

Playsuit payoff

Sunday afternoon was spent on retail therapy , picking out new togs out of store racks .
Once again , I found myself gravitating towards Cotton On where I had to this time , being a weekend , contend with very excited Thai bargain hunters who seemed to swoop up sports bras by the basket loads ! They're probably business women cos I don't know any exercise freak who will buy that many sports bras at one go , at least not yet .

Ah , but my intention to enter this store , has swayed from focus on their activewear and now that all the effort  is slowly paying off  ( but still a big girl mind you ) , I'm moving on . 
Of course , I could find a million faults to fret over my unperfect body but what's the point in that eh ? 

Ended up picking 2 playsuits and a 2 piece combo all in . What I consider my personal payoffs for all the time poured into my workouts .

Winged throwback to the 70s and 90s

This is the second bird print I'm getting this year . The first was a macaw print tights from Cotton On , which you can find in a backpost  .
Now this . A pink parrot which I find so quirky .

3 firsts towards a minier me

 This is the first miniskirt I'm purchasing in a really long time .
It's taken between 8 to 9 months to come to this stage .
My tummy has gone down half the size it previously was without any loose skin problem . There's long term results for you . 

Koochi moochi is probably not going to approve but because I live in Penang , the one place in Malaysian where older women of my age and beyond still dare to don such garb , I'm going right ahead and gonna pour myself into one anyway .

Not just any mat

Have you ever seen a gold yoga mat ?
 I sure haven't . Anyway , since I just began to incorporate exercise into my life from last December , inevitably yoga will be a natural progression . Don't care if it has been in the market far back as 2016 ( what the production date on the label says ) but I sure want one for myself ! 
Where did I get this from ? Body by Cotton On . Bag not included .

Cotton On Body

Orange seems to be my new favourite colour nowadays . 
There are just so many shades to choose from I can't believe it ! 

From pastels , to candy shades and bright fluorescents , when I spot them on the rack , I go a bit nuts after that .
