Happy Friday everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far.

Continuing on my project for Coriander, here’s the second look that I’ve created. When putting together this outfit, I’d imagined myself at a fab summer resort, enjoying the breeze and beautiful scenery, and having a romantic dinner by the beach with the love one. Totally inspired by the ladies in the Sex and the City huh! LOL

THE LOOK:

Style: As¬†described by my girl friend as¬†“goddess”, “flowing”, “mod colour palette”, “retro print”, and “Pucci¬†meets Mount Olympus”. Thanks, Jane!

Key items: A maxi dress with the right style for your body figure, scale and height.

Things to look for:

Fit and snug – most long garments can easily make you look shorter. The trick here is to select a style that is well-cut – that means choose a full-length dress that sits snugly to your body figure – especially around the hips and thighs. And not least, around your waist (or below the bust).

The V-shaped neckline – it works wonders in elongating the body figure for those who are petite, and also¬†create¬†a vertical line that makes you look leaner. Who doesn’t like this?!

Details and prints – select prints that are scaled to your body frame- smaller prints for petite and larger prints for plus size. If you’re unsure, go with neutral.

Fabric – avoid too-clingy fabrics that “grab” you in the wrong place. Find one that drapes better on the body and make sure you choose a dress with some flow to it, so that it sway nicely when you move.

Accessories:

Footwear – strappy sandals in a neural and simple style suit the long dress look the best. If you need some height or for a more formal look, open-toe, strappy pumps or wedges is the choice.

Belt – if you have a dress that are loose-fitted and look boxy, adding a belt around your waist (right below your bust or around the thinnest part of your waistline) will make you look 5 lbs lighter. Choosing the right belt will also give a whole new feel to your outfit – making it look well-polished and chic.

Necklace or bracelets – avoid anything too glitzy. Let your maxi dress be the statement!

Isn’t it pretty obvious now why I chose this gorgeous paisley turquoise dress!¬†Ingenue London is by far my favourite fashion label for maxi dresses. All the dresses made is designed to flatter the feminine figure for women of all ages and different styles. It’s elegant and wearable, and most importantly, it’s so comfortable! Love the fabric!!

Posted on

Happy Wednesday everyone! Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on my previous post and I’m definitely looking forward to more collaboration opportunities. For now, let me share with you another exciting event that I was part of.

On Wednesday, April 10, Guelph’s Italian Canadian Club was bursting with colours as the Guelph & District Multicultural Fundraiser hosted its annual fashion show, featuring costumes and fashions from around the world including Ireland, Vietnam, Indonesia, Nigeria, India and more – all worn by members of Guelph’s own multicultural community. The money raised from this great event will go to support future multicultural initiatives in our community.

I had the opportunity to walk down the runway wearing two different traditional costumes – Vietnam and Indonesia. Although I’m originally from Malaysia, but I still feel honoured and proud to be in these beautiful costumes, especially in ‘Ao Dai’ (Vietnamese traditional costume), now that I’m married to a Vietnamese.
