Seeing Red

Jan 22nd, 2017 #ootd rojakcouture 6 min read

It might be because it’s getting closer to Chinese New Year or having seen Kinky Boots for the umpteenth time, but when it comes to color; I can never just stick to a hue and go with it. However, in this case, red has been on mind lately. Again, not sure why. perhaps it was after this recent purchase of a vinyl jacket I obtained…

HN Hanif Naim: Lookbook

Nov 18th, 2015 #ootd rojakcouture 2 min read

Battling rain and impossibly unpredicatable weather, these were no element to halt our ootd lookbook shoot out. Especially when it comes with a dear friend’s recently debuted frocks from Malaysia Fashion Week 2016. Hanif Naim has been around since 2010, winning the prestigious Stylo Emerging Designer Award in 2011; the designer went on to London to showcase his collection and even secured a slot for…

OOTD : Desert Maven

Oct 20th, 2015 #ootd rojakcouture 2 min read

A year ago, I made my way to this stunning man-made marvel that is the Pasir Kelebang reclaim area in Melaka and shot my H&M Studios Spring 2015 lookbook. Making my return to the location once more, I brought along bestie Aimanness to take some verily ethereal-like shots to go along with my Fall appropriate ensembles. Blue skies definitely absent in this pic, the skyscape…

Summer with Melissa Shoes

Apr 13th, 2015 #ootd rojakcouture 4 min read

Melissa, the Brazilian jelly shoe brand with that hard to miss bubblegum-scented smell they come with delivered another slew of designer collaborations that are just too good to miss. I’ve got my hands on these two babies from their Karl Lagerfeld and Vivienne Westwood collabs (lucky me) . Being a fan of the great Kaiser Karl, there’s nothing I love more than to own a…

This is not a title to a new Christina Millian song, but one can only imagine 😉 Have been busy settling bridesmaids/wedding gown booking and a couple of special projects had to be handled, here’re the Uniqlo denim looks as seen on Instagram and some full shots not published. Am so tempted to wear these to sleep really, its feels like second skin! Go get…

OOTD with Dude & The Duchess

Apr 2nd, 2015 #ootd, Fashion & Beauty rojakcouture 2 min read

Dude & The Duchess has done it again – another season of preppy key pieces for the slightly daring feminine serial outfitter for SS15. Take these for an example, one of the key pieces from the extensive collection by creative director Jonathan Liang. Pure genius.   I loved the different elements at play here: the cropped clean cut jackets and fabric-bending mash of sheer meets…

H&M Spring ’15 Lookbook

Mar 2nd, 2015 #ootd, Fashion & Beauty rojakcouture 7 min read

H&M Spring 15 and H&M Studio SS15 brings in the retro feels. Kaftans, suede, flare pants are keywords that you could possibly find in closets of the 1970s, though for the ’15 era remix of the trend, H&M enlisted a contemporary touch with emphasis to the silhouette, patterns and prints that would be relevant to modern sartorial demands. The collection boasts a distinct resort feel;…

My Weekend with Tory Burch Part 2

Feb 17th, 2015 #ootd, Fashion & Beauty rojakcouture 1 min read

  I love that Tory’s Spring 15 collection pushes the conformity out of the TB ball park. Case in point is this raffia tweed matching short and dress (which I unapologetically paired with my oversized Kenzo shoes). I decided to wear it exactly like the runway collection, and no kidding I didn’t realize I was wearing the bag exactly with this dress as worn on…

Burchin’ in Tory Burch

Feb 6th, 2015 #ootd, Fashion & Beauty rojakcouture 2 min read

The brand I can immediately relate to Jessica Alba’s style, not many locals dig deep on the versatility and campness of what Tory Burch collection could help emulate. Look beyond their ubiquitous logo flats and tote, and you will find pieces that are somewhat Hamptons chic meets New York State of Mind. Case in point, is their recent Spring 15 collection. Taking inspiration from a…
