Zorios is the new Zorro in style!

By Cynthia Lee (Guest Blogger)

Have you heard of the latest virtual hangout place for divas?
That place where shining pieces of brass and gold plated metals surrounds you and stones of all colors are screaming for attention. Once in a while you can see the lingering colorful tassel making a sweet and subtle entrance in between the colorful stones and shiny studs. 
Some of them converge in such radiating asymetrical postion while some just scattered in contemporary mood, with each bringing you this sensational feeling of adorning them on and walking off like a diva!

Welcome to Zorios - your new hang out place for all the prettiest accessories in town. If you have never heard of 'em before and this is your first time to start browsing their collection, just make sure you have a lot of time!
A well hidden gem in the internet world, Zorios houses an extremely complete range of accessories from necklace to rings and bracelets. Literally and practically, the can make up yor entire ensemble when it comes to accessorizing :D

From the funky fashionistas who ony wears gothic-inspired studded cuffed bracelet, to the tai-tai wannabes in chunky crystalline necklace and even the Korean inspired chic and simple trinkets, getting something very personal to your style is now possible under a single platform.

Here's some of my loots from a couple of months back that I would like to share with you.

Price is not too bad, though I think they may have up the price a bit over the recent time. But it's still affordable enough for those who are used to spend above RM80 for a piece of gorgeous accessories. Here, you can already get some gorgeous piece for a mere RM30. And when sales hit, it's crazy!

Head on to Zorios and check what's available here :

Garden-ful of Dreams

by Cynthia Lee

I am not sure if there are many of us who knows the actual definition of a dream catcher and where does it originates from. Here's what I managed to google ;

Dream catchers are intended to aid and protect those sleeping below by filtering their dreams. Symbolically the dream catcher allows good dreams to pass through the web and drift down to the sleeper, while bad dreams are said to become hopelessly entangled in the web, where they perish at the first light of dawn. By hanging a dream catcher above your bed, you signal to a deeper part of yourself that you want to remember those dreams that are of use to you. The dream world is a doorway to the subconscious - the inner workings of your life that you are not always aware of. By listening to your dreams you can learn more about yourself. The feathers symbolise air or the breath of life. 

But as time evolves it has not only serve as an item used traditionally and superficially to 'filter' your dreams. 
For the fashion savvy ones, these dreamcatchers actually can be turned to some very eye-catching piece of jewelries. And of course, symbolically, when you wear a dreamcatcher, it actually symbolises that you are actually 'catching' your dream to bring it to ground and make it a reality. Sounds convincing enough for you to grab one immediately? :)

Today, we are going to peek into this particular garden - Garden of Eva where lots of beautiful dreamcatchers are made of. 

Then you may ask how can you accessorise with these beautiful dreamcatchers

Wear it like a trendy gypsy - as large hoop earrings!

Make it a statement necklace

Wear it as a bodychain

This is brilliant! As an anklet.

Of course, if you are bold enough a dreamcatcher headband is sure to bring out the gypsy in you :)

I got some dreamcatcher from Garden of Eva last couple of week.
They do customise dreamcatcher of your choice, As I do not have any indication of what I have in mind, I always leave it to the artist to churn out something that they think may fit me  - as a blogger, a fashionista or whatever they perceive me as haha!

And here's to add to my collection of accessories! :)

Peacock inspired (left) and tarantula inspired (right)

The peacock concept fits me perfect! As a practitioner of Indian classical dance, I am very drawn to the beautiful peacock feather prints. In the Hindu mythology, the peacock and the feather symbolises goddess Lakshmi and the character she represents - fortune, compassion, kindness and patience.
It is also a very synonim symbol used in many dofferent culture. but from an artistic point of view, what is not to like of this unique peacock feather? And when combined into a dreamcatcher, it makes the combo so much meaningful. I just loved how I managed to see the definition of the accessories which I will wear which I think makes it more meaningful, right? =D

And ladies and gentlemen, this is a tarantula! Haha!

I think this is brilliant! How can anyone be inspired from this hairy creepy lil creature??
And the Garden of Eva just did!
It turned out to be a beautiful semi-beaded piece in the colors of a tarantula - black and orange. 

Lovely to be used as an earring

Look at the contrasting colors!

A times I tie it to my bag as a bag-chain too ;)

With price from RM50 onwards, you can get yourself a customised dreamcatcher to suit your preference. Add the glitter of beads for that lil' specks of shine to your dreamcatcher. Let the artist know your color preferences or if you have anything in mind that you want to incorporate in.

Inspired from the Tottenham Hotspur footbal team color. Brilliant!

These dreamcatcher makes perfect gifts if you are looking to gift something for someone who is moving in to a new house - get it done in a bigger size so they can hang it by the window.
It is of course an all time favourite gifts for birthday or any celebration of love to symbolise bigger, better dream for the recipient :)
And if you are like me who loves to accessorise with something meaningful, well get one for yourself!
With the new year coming very soon, I cna find more reason to get a couple of these dreamcatchers to catch the best of all dreams for a better year ahead!

Do catch the latest of designs from Garden of Eva in their Facebook here : GARDEN OF EVA

That femme thing for female

by Cynthia Lee

I rarely attend to any bloggers' invite nor would I self invite myself on the pretext on being a blogger. Simply because a blogger is just someone who happens to write something on a medium made available to public instead of a paperback diary =P

However, sometimes I do make it a point to prep up and attend those I find interesting. And what's more interesting than to know how does a luxury bag outlet withstand the test of time for 6 years and still going strong.

Femme Fatale Boutique - I am pretty sure you must have heard of them. Because they are everywhere! I bet you would have come across their bunting spawned across Klang Valley featuring Chui Ling as their brand ambassador.
And yes, this is not  scam, excuse me. Femme Fatale boutique is a reputable boutique that continues to bring in luxury bags ahead of time.

2014 marked their 6th years in business, showcasing luxury handbags sought from Europe and US. In celebrating their 6h anniversary, they have organised a mini-get-together for their regular clients in their Sunway Pyramid outlet. And what do you expect regular bagaholics do in a confinement of bags? =D

The queue was long and when I was in line, a few ladies who did not RSVP followed in the queue too because they saw the goodies bags and being Asian - when you see freebies, you must get it, regardless of what.
Remind me again, why am I here?

Throngs of people waiting to barge in. 

If you are a cult follower of luxury brands, avoid stepping in. Because, not only you be spoilt for choices, but your are most probably going to spoil your existing wallet, trying to get a credit card out and start your spree!

I espcially love these colorful Prada line and also the newly arrived YSL line *stare hard*

More Prada and some Miu Miu making wolf-whistling sound to those soft-hearted woman..

I, I, I really love this a lot! This is RM7900

The more you buy, the more freebies you get. Now you see why I said you are going to spoil your existing wallet anytime soon?

Before I attended the event, I actuallly got a bag from Femme Fatale about a month back - a Prada Nappa Gaufre in Pink for a little lesser than RM6,000.
Pink? Yes, because the color is so striking and screaming for attention that it quickly sink into my wallet make a big swipe on my credit card :/

Personally I am not a fan of pure luxury brand. I always believe that no material display on one will exude your true self but your true self.For any other days, I am actually feeling much more comfortable carrying my RM79 bag bought from an online shop though haha. 
But if you do have a lil' extra cash or you have worked hard enough for the entire year and feels that you ought to reward yourself with something that you really really like, in this case a very strong and bold colored bag, then why not give yourself that one-time opportunity to spend.

Why Buy From Femme Fatale?
Well, if you have never step into a single-brand luxury boutique or you just have the stare from those high end sales people just because you are draped in your comfy sneakers and shorts, ditch them snobbish sales people and head on to Femme Fatale, where you are free to browse and perhaps get yourself seated on their couch for that moment of deep thoughts if you should be investing in that RM7900 Yves Saint Laurent tote =D

Femme Fatale also carries a few brands under their roof - Prada, Gucci, YSL to name a few. And because they have merchandisers around Europe almost every month, you sometimes get the latest collection ahead of anyone else! =D

Where Can You Locate Femme Fatale
Sorry for those out of Klang Valley because they are currently only available within Klang Valley - Avenue K -Kuala Lumpur city, Sunway Pyramid - Selangor and in Mont Kiara - Petaling Jaya.

Do check out their Facenook pages here for more up to date news on new arrivals.

Not Just a 'Ribbon' - Reebonz

by Cynthia Lee

This is going to be a month of luxury! I will be sharing some very 'affordably pricey' goodness that we girls almost cannot live without - luxury bags.
Let's just call them luxury bags as they have a price tag which is way further than that of a Vincci or those that you often check out at GlossyAddiction. I never like to label them as 'branded bag' because every brand is still a brand regardless of you being able to recognise that brand or not.

It's every girls' dream to own at least 1 or 2 of these luxury bags in their wardrobe.
There could be many reasons of wanting one which is a very personal thought. I have never wanted one in my 34 years of living till recently =D

This November, mark your calendars for Reebonz’s highly anticipated online sale event —Black Friday Fest (‘BFF’). From 24 – 30 November, Reebonz offers a series of enticing gift shops and top designer picks with attractive promotions throughout the week.

Apart from the daily gift shops brimming with carefully selected picks from Reebonz, one can expect site-buster sale events and further promotions which is worth checking out. 

24-27 Nov: Pre-Black Friday Fest
Leading up to the Black Friday Sale, customers can kick off their gift shopping with an extra 11%* off when they shop from the many Gift Shops and designer sale events on Reebonz. 

28-30 Nov: Black Friday Fest

Reebonz Black Friday Fest sees 3-days of site-buster specials that features over 1,000 items at remarkable prices refreshed daily. To drum up the excitement of snapping up a best-priced item, Reebonz will release a final price item every 2 hours in its Gift-opia sales series from 10am-10pm each day. Over the weekend, shoppers can expect something extra to sweeten the Black Friday Fest and wrap up their shopping euphoria on Reebonz.

Expect to see lots of brands going on sales during the period. And you would never want to miss a good deal at a bargain price rite? :)

Head on to Reebonz to start checking them good out!

Love, Bonito Launch + Fashion Show!

By Wei Ni (Guest Blogger)

Isn't it strange how things kinda come together randomly, all at once? :)

I was invited by Cynthia (guest blogger on YSK & in charge of most things!) to attend Harith Iskander's 'To Know Malaysia is to Laugh Malaysia!' launch event on a fine Saturday afternoon, only to meet with Joyce (Kinky Blue Fairy) for the very first time & to be invited to the launch of Love, Bonito's store in Publika which she emceed for! :)

A little about Love, Bonito. 
They're the pioneering online fashion retail label in Singapore. Driven by a shared passion to empower women through style, Love, Bonito has earned a reputation for expertly striking a balance between style and affordability. Having emerged onto Singapore’s online fashion retail scene in 2006 as a humble blog shop, Love, Bonito has since been showered with accolades of awards ranging from “Best Blog Shop” at the Asia Pacific Blog Awards in 2009, to the coveted SME Asia Award 2013/2014 awarded by The Asian Business Journal and The Trade and Industry Association.

Now those are quite a bunch of hefty achievements aren't they! 

The two founders, Rachel & Viola respectively. 
In their retail space in Publika. It's a lovely little clean & cozy nook, so be sure to check it out! 

In conjunction with the launch of their store in Publika, Love, Bonito also took to opportunity to create a capsule collection with the ever popular blogger, Cheesie of Cheeserland

From left: Rachel, Cheesie & Viola. 

This fashion show is a special treat for all us Malaysians, as all of Cheesie's 8 delightful Autumn pieces will be debuted in their pop-up store in Publika before being officially launched on the Love, Bonito website! We've also been informed that once a design is sold out, they will not be remaking it anymore so you can be assured that you'll be one of the lucky few who managed to snag that piece! 

Two of my favourite looks from Cheesie x Love, Bonito collection! I love the monochromatic tropical inspired prints! They work perfectly with Fall & doesn't help that I am going through a totally monochromatic phase. ;) 

Here are a couple of pieces from Love, Bonito's main collection that I am currently loving! 
Crop tops & midi skirts! They're all the rage, so get on board already! ;) 
Flirty short lengths! 
A gorgeous side split chiffon dress with a half back cut out! This dress is moving FAST both on Love, Bonito's website and their retail space. Four people in a wedding have been spotted in this dress in various shades! :O 

Chillin' before the show. :)

Wearing Peep's Carla Cutout Crop Top in Black. 

Left: With Amber Chia! She's wearing the gorgeous half backless slit dress that I wanted. So I went back to buy it. :P

Right: With Joyce! Thanks for the invite & totally digging her outfit. All from Love, Bonito btw! 

Tried to look for that top only to find out it's sold out in my size already! 

Our lovely emcee for the night! Totally adorable & I thought she did a great job! :) 

It is an amazing & wonderful story of how a small Singaporean blog shop managed to grow into such a huge fashion label!

Last year itself, Love, Bonito closed the FIDé Fashion Week 2013 with her exclusive ready-to-wear collection in collaboration with Parisian haute couturier, Julien Fournié, propelling the online brand to international fashion label status.

For this year, Kuala Lumpur is the first stop in Love, Bonito’s greater journey to empower women throughout the Southeast Asian region through sharing their passion for style.

Aside from the main Love, Bonito line, the online retail giant offers a wholesome range of apparel under 6 house labels to cater to every woman’s need, style and occasion. The labels include Basics by Love, Bonito, Covet by Love, Bonito, Swimwear, Petite, Bridesmaids and soon to be launched Maternity line. There simply is just something for everyone!

With sizes ranging from XS-L you're sure to find something that fits & looks good on you! Be sure to hit up their store in Publika to check out all the sizes before embarking on a frenzy online shopping spree on their website! Not all of their items online are available in the stores, so be sure to check them out in Publika first & do try out a couple of Cheesie x Love, Bonito's collection! I'm loving the tropical monochromatic prints!

At the moment, their pop-up store in Publika doesn't accept credit cards payment yet, so be sure to come ready with cash. Prices are from RM50 - RM150.

And finally, my full Outfit of the Day! :)
Told ya I was going through a monochromatic phase and also working the sulky look, since I was all dressed up in black. :) 

Watch the full show!
