-Hijabi Fashion Week 2012-
The challenge for today is:
Bring something back from the past and combine it with a recent item or trend!
Printed scarf: bazaar at Jaya One
Cardigan: Dorothy Perkins
Maxi dress: brandless
Handbag: Louis Vuitton
Heels: Kiss & Tell
This is when old meets new. In order to achieve this look I chose the foulard print scarf as something from the past and combined it with the colour of Spring/Summer 2012 - yellow. If not mistaken foulard print was famous in the late 80's to 90's. I remember looking at my mother's foulard scarves back then and associate it with prints for adults or specifically, the 'aunties'. I still have that thought until I saw that foulard print scarf at the Jaya One bazaar last Saturday. Still unsure whether it is an age factor or something else, I somehow found that scarf pretty and immediately got an idea to wear it like that. Definitely not my everyday style though but I kind of like it because it reflects a classy look.
Nothing much to exagerrate about the famous colour of the season. I have been crazy about yellow since months ago and it seems that I am not the only one. Even LV released the yellow vernis limited and specially for its Spring/Summer 2012 collection. That bag is love at the first sight and it was the only one available in their boutique at The Gardens Kuala Lumpur. Yellow can easily influent your mood and based on my experience, it helps to brighten up my day just by wearing a piece of it.
I am happy because I am able to achieve today's challenge but I am not so happy about that photo actually. I was in a rush and pardon me, I do not have any dedicated photographer so I took it with a self timer using my handphone. I am still wondering how fashion bloggers got their pretty pictures actually. Do they own a dedicated photographer to snap their looks everyday? Hrmmm... still curious. By the way, I seriously need a photographer /-_-\
