Listen Up!


What’s an event without a theme song?

Yes, it’s the FIFA 2010 World Cup official album! This is a joint effort studio album, by both international artiste and local South African artiste, too.

Honestly, the only FIFA theme I could remember is Ricky Martin and his ‘Cup of Life song (with gratuitous ‘bon-bon’shaking) and the legendary Queens’ ‘We Are the Champions’ classic. But for this year’s event, we have Shakira!

Her song, Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) is a catchy song, with poppy, upbeat tunes and lyrics. This song features Freshlygrounds, a band that provided the amazing, traditional South African beats, into an amazing fusion of modern pop and traditional and authentic.

This album introduces Nneka, a Nigerian artist, with her track ‘Viva Africa’. It’s a fast paced rock, with kids singing the chorus. It definitely captures the spirit of the game, and the pride of the land.

‘One Day’ is another of my favourites, performed by Matisyahu featuring Nameless. By the way, Matisyahu, is an American Jewish singer. Talk about international collaboration! It’s a slow song, a slow number with positive messages on peace and love.

This album is not just for football fans, it caters for those non-footie fans, too. (I have never liked football). It offers an amazing line up of artists and songs – Nneka is simply amazing; Claudia Leitte has a strong voice; artists which you’ve never heard, but their tracks are just good; songs makes you feel like dancing and anticipate the next game. It has a mix of genres, which offers even more variety: slow, pop, reggae, choir-like background singers.

I think this album captures the excitement of the game; the euphoria of the crowds, the patriotism and nationalism exhibited by football players and fans: pride for your own country

Viva Africa!

Dress Me Up!

Dr. Pizzicato

La Femme
Sometimes laces are hard to pull off. I mean, too much you will come off as either a hooker or your grandmother's coasters. Too little, people will hardly notice so what is the point? A significantly right amount will radiate the mysterious yet sensual aura, which is definitely a plus point!

This top is soft looking with their pastel colors. Suitable for your working place and a stroll at the park. It has an uber sophisticated yet sexy look, yes? We like this piece. Definitely a must have. For only RM47!

------------------------------------

Clothes Bucket

Floral Applique
So I've said it once, I will say it again. Floral is in. Its not just because of mother nature either. Girly and soft, besides, we all can go a little green -in a sense- no? Floral prints aside, a little accentuation doesn't hurt either. With a gorgeous neckline and soft prints, I think this top is fabulously girly yet street chic worthy!

What a steal! Its only RM40!

-----------------------------------

Le Mode Maison

Lizzy


Colors are a way to show your confidence! These eye grabbing colors that just pops are just the outfit for any fun day out in the sun! Its casual enough for a stroll with the girls in the mall and mod looking enough for any semi formal function! Because its plain without any prints, you can match it with any accessory of your choice and girl, you are ready to go! ;)

Yours for only RM35!

---------------------------------------

Vogue Nation

Femme Fatale


Of pencil and high waisted skirts, we think this is quite awesome. A good high waisted skirt should fit well and have a nice cut to compliment your bum. Usually you would fine these skirts to be in neutral colors because they are supposed to compliment the top (we suggest, for this season -go floral) This piece went slightly off the normal white and went to the grayish side.

We like! White sometimes just screams too safe. Gray is what we call, dancing on the edgy line. Its almost white, but edgy enough to be worn on the streets and tell people: 'hey, I mean business!' Interested? Its only for RM48!

Bohemian Rhapsody

By Rosanna Lee

Aside from florals that has been dominating the fashion stage for the past few seasons, it’s good to know that exotic prints and coloured patterns are making their way back into the runway with a grand entrance too!

Boho chics can now rejoice as the return of maxi dresses, loose-fitting blouses and earth-themed accessories allows us to set aside the floral rompers, denim shirts and bandage skirts for once. After all, the perks of being a boho chic is that you are free to mix and match whatever you feel like wearing, unleashing the free-spirited independent woman who’s not afraid of what others think of her.

Here a few picks that we think would appeal the inner gypsy in you ;)


Wild prints are the latest offering from Younique Trio and get yours for only RM36. Currently they are running a promotion whereby those who have accessed and liked their FB page are automatically entitled a 10% discount on all items. So then, what are you waiting for ;)


Maxi dresses are great for casual days and dressy nights depending on how you style it, be it with a pair of gladiators or a glam pair of heels. Invest in this summer outfit by purchasing yours from Curvy Queens Closet at only RM59.



Monochrome prints are back in demand and we could not resist this alluring number that comes with a playful sexyback. With 3 different prints to choose from, you will have a hard time deciding which one to snap up! Definitely the not for the faint-hearted, give this a go at only RM42 from mango + Orangie.


We spotted this beautiful stunner too at RM59, a steal considering that the colour is simply unique and classy :) Invest in your bohemian get-up from here at MilkTee Boutique :D

Earthy and kitschy at the same time, it’s a dress that will help you breeze through hot Malaysian weather. Yours for only RM67 at MilkTee Boutique. Do you know that they are one of the few blog-shops that comes with a return policy? Now you can shop with full confidence and push aside your worries when it comes to shopping online.







Timeless with an Edge

Peep

He-She-It

Always loved that dangerous looking punk rock look, but not daring enough to go all the way? Try androgynous chic! Well, the term androgynous more or less refers to a guyish chic kind of fashion -think boyfriend shirts and blazers. In my personal opinion, this androg' chic is a fashion trend that has a bit of that punk rock edge -which is what makes this trend all the worth while.

You can rock this ripped long tank in both ways - a top or a dress. Pair it with some punk rock looking jeans or some edgy accessories and yeowzers! someone looks fierce! :) (without seeming too intimidating that is) Yours for only RM39!

------------------------------------------

A Model Studio

Azex Work ams 1175

Ooh la-la. Can you say Manhattan Chick on the loose? Trench coats are so sophisticated and classy, no? Fans of the popular television series -Ugly Betty will definitely know that the ever fashionable villainess Wilhelmina strutted around the glamorous office of Mode Magazine in crisp looking coats like these. They kind of scream, I mean business, fashionable business! ;)

This cute little office number for only RM55!

------------------------------------------

Itsy Beadsy

Aqua Drop
Enchanting, yes? Sometimes when you don't want to go over the top with your dress, but not seem too dull at the same time -you can always work those accessories. Particularly if you want to draw attention to those gorgeous peepers of yours! ;) This pair is especially stunning, looking like real aqua gems, it costs less than it looks! For a shockingly low RM 14!

------------------------------------------

The Bubble Teaa Boutique

Strippy Toga Dress

The Romans I feel are like the most fashionable empires among the rest. I mean, they invented fashion wonders like bikinis and togas! This one shouldered wonder is making back its way into the red carpets, with more and more toga-one shouldered dresses making an appearances on famous faces like Jennifer Lopez and Halle Berry. Join in the trendy wagon and get one that is not too dressy, slightly casual but not too casual one shouldered wonder! For only RM30!
