Happy May Day Weekend!
This long weekend has been a long time coming (yes, even though we recently had another a week ago – is it obvious that I’ve been working hard?! hurhur) and today we are chilling out with Adele and her sexy cover of The Cure’s 1989 classic, Lovesong:
Compare and contrast with the original:
Which do you prefer? Sexy and sensual, or goth and freakishly Edward Scissorhands-esque?
I have to admit, I can’t decide…
Fashion and Music have been long-time friends and partners, but on April 13, just outside Beijing’s Sparkle Roll Plaza, a slightly reserved Technology decided to join in.
It’s hardly late to the party though. Burberry’s holographic showcase of its Fall ’11 collection featured 3D projected models that burst into powder and even changed clothes at some point.
A refreshing take on the English weather.
Coachella may be over, but the music lives on forever…yes, I tend to get dramatic like that.
Today we get inspired by The Strokes – especially after seeing their phenomenal performance at Coachella via the live webcast (yes, the entire three day music fest was streamed live!).
Sometimes there’s really nothing better than good ol’ American rock.
Also, if someone would like to sponsor me a trip to the next edition of Coachella, I would definitely not be opposed to it.
Great to wake up to. Thought I’d share this.
Phillip Wang is such a closet romantic. For those who don’t know Wongfu Productions, it’s time to get started. Have a great weekend everyone!

Gone are the days of cringing when I spot somebody on the street decked out in the same dress I am wearing. It is a bitch growing old, with expanding waistlines and knowing that youth isn’t your best beauty secret anymore, but there are certainly perks to it – affording well-tailored, one-of-a-kind clothing that looks chic, stylish, unique and simply me.
Joining the ranks of up and coming local designers (perhaps this may be well of a series of posts?) is Ong Shunmugam - heck even the name spells something different – contemporary womenswear label designed to cut to fit and accentuate your best womanly assets. I shall let the pictures speak for themselves, as I put forth a few of my personal favourites from the Orientalism 2011 collection:
- cut to the waist, with waist detail to accentuate narrow waist and curvy hips. Chic and oriental.
Lee Ping dress
- from workwear to cocktails, all I need is a blazer to go with this. And patent leather black heels. Mmm!
Poh Sim jumpsuit
- screams sexy, classy, contemporary. I loved how the silk blouse moves but the rest of the jumpsuit fits the body, unlike the flare jumpsuits we are so used to these days.
- my ultimate favourite, being a fan of black. Using a combination of Lycra and and lace, the flattering cut hugs your body and balances proportions, you look subtle-sexy (now that’s what we want to wear to work without looking too slutty).
And she does a lovely contemporary remake of the cheongsam. One piece but fashioned as a blouse and a pencil skirt. Oh till I can fit into a cheongsam….
The collection is available at http://shop.ongshunmugam.com, or via Facebook. What I love about tailored wear is the exclusive attention they give you, advice on what looks best on your body, what material fits and what I can’t wear – good ol’ honest advice that I appreciate. Simply write to them and pay a visit.
