Like A Coppola (Sofia) in Springtime Jardin Feels with Urban Decay

Apr 13th, 2017 #ootd rojakcouture 6 min read

(Hit the button to capture the feels) Springtime looks call for something romantic, blushed in innocence and fresh-toned scent and makeup. In a field of blooming wild chrysanthemums in Perissa, Santorini, I took my best Sofia Coppola references; inspired mostly form the Virgin Suicides and the infantile enthusiasm of Marie Antoinette within this ootd. Immersing myself in a Coppola’s set ala Marc Jacobs’ eau de parfum,…

Going, Going…ONG!

I think it’s safe to say that a gold-centric lookbook has been long overdue. Heck, a lookbook post itself has been long overdue. For CNY, I figured it is about time, given with this amazing pieces selected by myself during a sourcing/loaning trip from The Oldees. While I was busy scurrying around for kimono pieces and qipao for an Oriental inspired shoot, I came across…

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…

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…

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…

One Dior, Three Attitudes

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…

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…
