Styling tips - How to wear a crop top


Joe Chia 02 zipper knit top // Fashion Bloggerrr skirt // Aldo heels // Céline bag // Saint Laurent leather cuff 

I know many of you love crop tops, but here are some tips you need to know before you can nicely pull off one. Either cropped knitwear or shirts, first you'll need to pick the right length and size. You can pick a top that bares your belly, but make sure you wear them oversized fits to offset the shorter length. The reason I wanted my zipper crop top to be well fitting because I was going to wear it with a mid waisted skirt, which was just nice to avoid midriff baring. 

Next, not all crop tops are suitable for all occasions. Keep it classy by choosing the appropriate design and fabrics. Loose cotton crop tops are perfect for summer, music festivals, and casual day out. Fitted design in sheer, knit, and etc perhaps are more suitable for a date or party. Easily pair it with a pair of heels like I've styled for attending Aldo Meets Summer 2014 collection launch event last 2 weeks. 

Keep these in mind, I'm sure you'll be good to rock a crop top.

As a leader in ultra-lightweight and polycarbonate luggage, it is dedicated to bring travel experience to a new height with its constantly improving technology in term of security, functionality and outer design.

You guys shall google it or wait for me to blog if I'm able to travel in the near future :p

As much as I love fashion styling, I wouldn't miss any chance to travel in style. Called me a fashion fanatic!!! I've got myself a RIMOWA Salsa in matte black colour. I've always wanted a black colour luggage that could match my flight outfit, yay! :D Even Hollywood celebrities in addiction to movie directors often use Rimowa cases within their movies to portray the brand as a fashionable stylish accessory while you travel. No doubt RIMOWA cases are the creme-de-la-creme of travel cases.

KKBOX music anywhere

Music is my life, music is everyone's life! No matter what music genre you love, music can unite us all together even though some of us don't even know what's the lyrics about. Take myself as an example, I  love listen to Cantonese songs but that doesn't mean I fully understand the meaning of those songs; it is the melody that matters the most. 

What if I tell you there's an app that has rolling lyrics while you playing songs and you can do karaoke on-the-go?
The application is called KKBOX, the leading digital music subscription services provider in Asia. Featuring over 10 million music tracks from more than 500 major and local music labels and publishers, KKBOX also hosts the largest Chinese music library in the world. Initially launched in Taiwan in 2004, KKBOX has expanded to other Asia countries like Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. 

Rolling lyrics oh yeahhhhhh :D
因為孤獨的總和 讓我們相互依偎着
擁抱彼此的感傷 即使不能擁有
我們是孤獨的總和 所以相聚了
因你而起伏的感受 怎麼掙脫...
Another feature of KKBOX is that you can excess to your playlists through your smart phones, table or PC whenever and wherever you are. All songs can be played in an offline mode once you have download them. You can even get connected with celebrities you idolised and listen to the songs they played and get the opportunities to chat with them whenever they are online! Try to find me on KKBOX and listen what am I playing :p 

Besides karaoke on-the-go, I'm loving this QuickPlay feature where you can create a temporary playlist according to your mood. Let's say today you are feeling sad and you want to listen to Mandarin songs produced from year 2000 to 2010, KKBOX then will automatically gather all the songs on your playlist so that you don't have to search one by one. Very time-saving :D

This enables Malaysian users to access the very latest in music updates, exclusive artiste interviews, album reviews, as well as concert and LIVE reviews. You can get first-hand information and listen to the latest songs of all genres and languages by going to the KKBOX charts. I'm sure you won't miss out any good songs ever again!

Styling tips - Timeless white shirt

White shirt (Lonely Dream store) // Topshop cropped top, necklace, platform shoes // 4FORE shorts // Céline bag


Fresh, sophisticated, and charming - nothing evokes effortless innate style quite like this pure simplicity of a white shirt. Conjuring images of nonchalant charm and luxe minimalism, a white shirt is something every girl should call her own.   

Keeping it minimal, I styled this wardrobe basic as an outerwear with basic long sleeve cropped tee and a pair of loose short pants. A little androgynous as usual. There are so many ways to style an oversized white shirt, simply pair if with pair of black jeans or high-waisted skirt and pop it out with a fitted blazer. I'm sure you will look unmistakable chic as ever. The classic white shirt is one of the wardrobe essential that is highly sensible investment. Therefore, avoid fussy details design and always select one in the highest quality fabric that you can afford. 

Wardrobe styling become easier with this timeless piece x

Japan Part 7 - Eat, Play, Love @ Osaka

Excuse my bare face ancliché tourist pose. It was my first time in Osaka and also everyone's first visit so we couldn't bother to wait at the hotel for checking in; instead we brushed up a bit at the bathroom and headed straight out after taking a midnight bus from Tokyo to Osaka. 

First stop, we headed to Shinsaibaishi-suji, a famous shopping district that covers a collection of department stores as well as independent boutiques. The variety of the shops and restaurants makes it popular with nearly every kind of shopper. Our initial plan was supposed to shop for an hour or two because we were so exhausted from the long haul bus travel but the 600 metres long streets aren't giving us time to stop walking. The moment when I had a slice of Pablo cheesecake, the whole trip was paid off. The melting cheese inside your mouth gave me a total mouthgasm! Somebody deliver this to me right now please *pull hair*!!!

We were a bit lost when I was trying to find a ramen restaurant which I've googled earlier. We couldn't manage to find it and here was what we seen along the streets. These host clubs advertisement boards were too dumbstruck. If you've ever been to a crowded Japanese city at night, these gentlemen of the night, hustlers, escorts, or whatever name you called them, they are dressed up like skeezy rock band or Final Fantasy protagonists prowling the street corners and inviting you (girls of course) in for a drink. 
 
Jane suggested we shall pop in any restaurant to settle our late lunch as we all were really felt like a zombie for not sleeping for a night. We had tsukemen again though it wasn't as good as the one we had in Tokyo, but it was alright. I truly feel any random ramen shop in Japan cooks better noodles and broths than those in Malaysia. 

 After lunch, we went back hotel and took a short nap. We didn't plan for any late night activity so we decided to check out the popular tourist attraction - Ebisu-bashi bridge at night as it is a great spot for people-watching and for viewing Osaka's most eye-scorching neon signage. The most famous site would be the Glico 'Running man' with a giant neon track star. Of course, you would't miss the Shochikuza Theatre and Kani-Doraku restaurant which I've tried in Tokyo (link here). While noming takoyaki, we couldn't decide what to have for our dinner because Jane and Huan wanted to have ramen again whilst Ashley and I were craving for sushi so we had our dinner separately again. Both of us had the same sushi set which costs less than RM100 each. The amount of fresh and thick slices of sashimi they have piled on were so amazed. It was really delicious and bound to be my favourites of satisfying my sashimi cravings, which we both went for a second time.

Fruit beers, pillow talking, cray cray selfies to call it a night. 

Send me to Japan right now please, I'm missing everything there.

Daphne Turned 22!

She is one of the girl that I would put a gun on her head and shoot her because sometimes she is too pessimistic about life. Lucky her, she has us now. Transmitting some positive energy to her, telling her how beautiful she is, how talented she is, and how lucky she is to have us. Right Daphne Charice? :p

She said she has never a celebration like this before, so we gave her one. She said she wanted to have Chinese cuisine because we can all sit together on a round table which represents a togetherness. Unlike the western long table style, we can talk and bond closely. Also thanks to YummyFlowerz for sending us a huge fruit bouquet which is just nice to serve as a dessert. 

LengLeng even got her a customised 'The Fault In Our Stars' birthday that she is crazily in love. When Daphne gone crazy on something or someone, you gonna be prepared cuz she gonna make everyone around her fall in as well. She will either whining about how good the story lines are, or humming that particular song. This is Daphne, her true self. 
We all love you because who you are, so stop complaining and be yourself. 

Endless love x
