The Sartorial Somnambulist

Jan 3rd, 2017 #ootd rojakcouture 2 min read

The first look book ootd of the year is dedicated to my second love in life; sleep. Thank heavens for the current fad of lingerie/boudoir looks getting their shine on in broad daylight-which is all okay when combined with pajama pants. Lace, satin; printed pants and toughened up with a coat, found on my vintage haunts. Wear it both ways with sandals or add granny…

2017: Hello, Ambitions

Dec 27th, 2016 Reviews & Ramblings rojakcouture 5 min read

You may have known all about this now, but I have been busy the past year. I would normally carved out a post on what I have achieved this past year (safe to say we are great to apply 2016 as ‘the past’), but to do so would be quite the feat, and I have been so preoccupied with new projects, ideas and all of…

Night and Day with Mini Lady Dior

Nov 6th, 2016 #ootd rojakcouture 4 min read

Are you a lady of the day or a nocturnal dudette of the night? This is why I love things that glitter and sparkle; as they acclimatize well to both situations and lighting conditions. Now I’m not that much of a lady, but when the color pink is involved I instantly switch on that little molecule in me that carries the girly chic gene and manifests…

Fashion Week SS17 Excursions: London and Milan 2016 (Part 1)

Oct 19th, 2016 Fashion & Beauty rojakcouture 37 min read

About a year ago in September, I wanted to really step out my comfort zone and take the ‘syok sendiri’ path to cover fashion week under my own expenses for The List Magazine. Charting this strange territory of covering fashion week on my own was a rather significant experience; very very much one of the best investments in my life and career as an editor-in-training….

One Dior, Three Attitudes

Sep 11th, 2016 Uncategorized rojakcouture 5 min read

Mention Dior and the heart immediately skips a flutter. Commonly referenced as a girly, ladylike label; I have to say I beg to differ; at the very least from my perspective! I never truly believe any bag reserve its functionality for certain occasions, and that seems to be the case bestowed on this latest Dior Autumn/Winter ’16 bag. Sequinned and embellished to perfection, the bag…

Forgive this rather hasteful post, I managed to compile everything and sorted my life out in preparation of the next big trip! Most of you may have known that I recently did a styling job for Innai Group at KLFW, and I had a lot of fun working with the people and styling the models with Innai’s Rio Bonita , Resort 17 collection. These are…

KLFW RTW 2016 Breakdown

Aug 28th, 2016 Fashion & Beauty rojakcouture 4 min read

Fashion is an outlet for me. While our version of fashion week is a far cry from the notable fashion capitals of the world in terms of coverage and fashion sensibility; KLFW was no more less in terms of the hype it generates and the fashionable looks it delivers. Hits and misses are expected, but alot did come decked out in their best statement wares…

KLFW RTW 2016 OOTD with Portluxe

Aug 28th, 2016 Uncategorized rojakcouture 3 min read

There is something special about pre-loved items. I started buying thrift store clothes way back in ‘o6. What originally started as a method of saving up money to own something different, now has become a full-fledged hobby that I take alot of my time on both overseas and in Malaysia. Buying second-hand clothes is hardly something to be ashamed of. For me, owning a piece…

Perempuan, Isteri dan … (a Spontaneous project)

Aug 18th, 2016 Fashion & Beauty, Portfolio rojakcouture 7 min read

People who know me are well aware of my impulsive nature to travel, and carry out spontaneous assignments. So this was the third day of raya or something like that, and I was itching to go back to my hometown in Penang and Kedah just because I wanted to. In typical Haida fashion, I decided to prong in bestie and photog extraordinaire Aimanness along…and when…
