Best and Worst: The SAG awards

2 February 2012

Status: Just dragged unwilling self out of bed to go to work
Time: 7AM

So the Screen Actor's Guild Awards (SAG) was held a few days ago. And of course, I took the opportunity to screen through every star that attended that night. Some shone, and some bombed. So here's my pick of the best and worst of the night!


5. Angelina Jolie

It's not the dress. The dress is alright. And no, it's not that it looks wrong on her. She looks fine. It's just that I'm sorely disappointed with Angie. After looking drop dead gorgeous at the Golden Globes, this just looks blah. It's like she wasn't even bothered. You can do better than this, Angie.

4. Heather Morris

You know, Heather is a beautiful girl. She really is. But I think her character, Brittany on Glee is rubbing off her. Because only a dumb blonde would dress like a slutty vampire to a black-tie event and expect it to work. 

3. Kaley Cuoco

I'm not sure what was going through her mind when she chose this look, but I think it was probably along the lines of:  "I wanna be a Barbie Princess tonight!" and then came this disaster. I can't decide if she's wearing meringue or a skirt... 

2. Shailene Woodley

Shailene, did you come to the SAGs thinking it was a Hawaiian-themed party of some sort? Because last I checked it was supposed to be a black-tie event... You know, one of those nights where people dressed up in glitz and glamour? 

1. Busy Philips

Alright, who let the runaway hippie on the red carpet? Oh. It's you, Busy.

5. Kyra Sedgwick

Can you believe she's already 47? This MILF not only looks stunning in that Emilio Pucci dress, but she's also debuted her new tattoo (done in honor of her family, by the way) in the sexiest way possible.

Subtle, yet deliciously sexy. Absolute love.

4. Octavia Spencer

Not only did Octavia Spencer bag an award that night, she's also been causing waves among the fashion community ever since. The Tadashi Shoji Dress hugs her in all the right places! I love how her updo enhances her beautiful face. Lovely.

3. Stacy Keibler

I love her Marchesa dress, and that hair. Stacy certainly knows how to make elegance look effortless. There's no wonder how she snagged George Clooney, is there?

2. Emma Stone

Once again, 2nd place on my best dressed list, but stunning nonetheless. After being wow-ed by her at the Golden Globes, I expected nothing less from Emma. She took a chance by wearing a midi-length Alexander McQueen dress. And you know what? She brought cute and glamorous to a whole new level that night.

1. Zoe Saldana

In this gorgeous dress fresh off the runways of Givenchy Haute Couture, Zoe was the one star that shone the brightest that night. The dress compliments her willowy figure so well, that the very moment I saw her, my jaw dropped. I just knew I had to put her in the number 1 slot. I had a look at the dress on runway, and I think she carries it even better than the models did. Beautiful. So beautiful, she looks unreal.  Amazing job, Zoe! Hats off to you!

Till next time. Au revoir, darlings. xoxo

Blogshop Review:

1 February 2012

Status: Still collecting angpau-s
Time: 12PM


A quick look
Honestly, I've shopped at so many times, that I think it's probably safe to say that I'm a regular customer.  As far as I've known them, they don't have an exact niche (in terms of style) to their clothes. Every season/new arrival brings us a whole new style. And all with unique pieces, most of which, to be quite frank, can't really be found in any other shop. 

Which is really one of the reasons why I keep coming back to them.

The website is very well organised, and well segmented according to the categories and collections. However, what I love most, is the way they provide bits of helpful fashion advice with every article of clothing. 

See those little pictures at the bottom? Click those for a closer look of the outfit that you're interested in.
They even provide you with suggestions of what goes best with the outfit. 

Ordering method:
As a well-established online shop, has its own ordering system. Which is very convenient, cos you don't have  to email and inquire about the outfit, then wait for the site owner to respond. Simply plonk your item of choice into the shopping cart. 

Check out

 And pay. 

Nice and convenient. I'm pretty happy with it all. 

From the very first time I've shopped at, their service has always been impressive. And probably (by far) the best service I've ever experienced from any other blogshop I've been to. The replies are always swift and prompt, and very polite. 

Oh, they also have a fashion guru who provides you great fashion advice. If you're ever in a dilemma of what to wear with their outfits, just drop her an email at

Payment Method:
Quick and efficient, is what I would say about their payment method. My only issue is the fact that the FPX payment system that they use only operates from 8am to 11pm. Which can be a nuisance to those of us who shop after 11pm. 

As mentioned in a previous review, I'm not all that fussy about packaging. But good packaging makes the whole process of opening my package much more exciting. is definitely one of those blogshops that pay real good attention to their packaging. I absolutely adore their ziplock bags. 

One of the coolest packaging ideas (among online shops) that I've come across so far. Oh and you can reuse them! 

This time round, I've bought 4 items from - 3 tops and 1 amazing dress. Alright I confess, I got one of the tops for free (cos of the amazing promotion that they're having right now, which I will talk about much later. Let's not gravitate from the topic, shall we?).

This is a piece that I've lusted after from the very moment I laid my eyes on it. One of the sexiest tops I've seen so far, this beautiful top is exactly what it's named for - a sultry piece made of lace! I love that it's just the right amount of sexy - no matter if you decide to wear it with only a bra, or an inner tube. Pair this top right and it will most definitely serve you well.

Needless to say, due to the fact that the top is made entirely of lace, it is very fragile. So if you plan on purchasing this piece, please be careful whenever you wash it. The good news is, it's still very well made. So chances of damage is still pretty low. As for me, I'd rather not take the chance.

I loved the result this top gave me when I put it on. So many delicious peek-a-boos! Definitely a nice tease to pull out of the closet for that sexy occasion.

This is actually a sold out piece (I'm one of the lucky few who managed to get one before it did. I have a feeling that they'll be restocking this. Check with the shop owners if you're interested.). It's a beautiful knitted top with peek-a-boo holes all over. 

To be honest, I was actually on the fence when it came to selecting this piece. I wasn't sure if I liked it that much. But when I put it on, all my doubts washed away. I paired it with a tank top, skinny jeans and heels for this year's CNY reunion dinner with my family, and the result was amazing. 

I have a weirdly proportioned body (my top half is shorter than my bottom half), and this baby balanced everything out! I looked like I had the body of a supermodel, and I'm not exaggerating. The amount of stares and compliments I got that night still give me goosebumps. Quality is excellent, and the material is super comfy by the way.

I have an infinite obsession with cropped tops. Despite the fact that I still have a slight bulge (which I am working on, I assure you) on my midriff, I can never get enough of them. So when I saw this top, I had to have it. I still don't understand why it's not sold out yet, but no complaints. I got it. 

Now, I know what you're thinking: "How are you gonna wear this when you have a huge tummy?" Elementary, dear ones. Pair it with a high waisted bottom. It doesn't go with an inner tube, I've tried. It looks horrible. So while working on my midriff, I'll wear this with some of my high waist skirts. Kinda like this:

Anyone familiar with the LookBook scene? This is Cosette Munch, a famous LookBooker. The skirt in the pic is The Fairy Dust Skirt, also from Beautiful ensemble, don't you think? Oh, and did you know that clothes from are worn by many famous celebrities,LookBookers, and bloggers? Check it out in this album. Once again, the quality, cut and fit are excellent. It's also very comfy. It felt like a second skin when I tried this on!

Look at it. It's amazing. Can't you see why I bought it? I love how dramatic this dress is. You'd have to have fashion dyslexia to not like this dress. I love how it all looks so simple and innocent from the front, and so va-va-voom from the back. I had to have it. 

The glitter, up close.
Slipping it on is like slipping on a dream - absolutely wonderful. It's super comfy, and most definitely well-worth my money. I knew immediately how excellently well-made this dress is. No regrets buying it at all. Of course, it's best to wear it with a nude bra so you'd get the full effect of the dress. 

As a regular customer of, I've never been disappointed with their clothes from the very beginning, and I most definitely wasn't disappointed this round. The quality, cut and fit and material has always been wonderfully on par. Did I mention that I'm always receiving compliments when I wear their clothes? It's true! It's one of the reasons (besides the great service) that keep me coming back to for more. And I don't think I'll ever stop. 

Before I end this post, here's a little announcement. is having a massive promotion on their stuff, and I mean MASSIVE. 

Buy 3 clothing items and get 1 on sale item, absolutely free! Terms and conditions apply. Check out their site for more info. 

Till next time. Au revoir, beautiful ones. xoxo
