Youtube Covers

Just a little something something a debut post shouldn't have.
Yours truly have been lurking around the web and indulging with little clips like these, during times which are crucial to fulfill credit hours. But ah well. These little or rather, big Youtube stars are hard to ignore.
Check out their awesome renditions of latest songs.

Now that thats over and done with, a little introduction to me, being a guest contributor to The Kleio. I will be popping in and out every now and then, bringing you little quirky random pieces on things I discover from the streets somewhere down south. Yes, I am blogging from abroad, so do forgive me if things get out of context.;)
well, till the next time...

signing off!;)

What Skin Tone Are You?

If you read the recent reviews lately, there has been a lot of mention about the right skin tone and the right colored dresses. The question is, what skin tone category do you fall in? So here is a brief explanation about each skin season and you will find out what skin tone are you!


Undertones: blueish or pinkish

Skin color: Pale white, olive yellow, dark

Generally African Americans and Asians fall into this group

Tip: Opt for colors that are stark, sharp and clear to compliment your winter skin tone. Like in winter, you would like to wear bright colors to stand out of that white background. Same goes for garments! When wearing light colors, opt for icy tones instead of pastel colors, because you need something to match your undertone and not go against it.

Suggested colors: White, Black, Navy Blue, Red, Shocking Pink

Avoid: Subdued tones like beige, orange and gold.


Undertones: blueish or pinkish

Skin color: Pale and pink

Normally blondes or brunettes with pale eyes

Tip: Choose pastels with pastels and soft neutral with rose and blue undertones. 

Suggested colors: Lavender, plum, rose brown, soft blue

Avoid: Black and Orange


Undertones: Golden

Normally redheads and brunettes with golden brown eyes 

Tip: Look for colors with a slight gold undertone to bring out that glimmer in your skin. But avoid colors with blue undertones. 

Suggested colors: Camel, beige, orange, gold, dark brown

Avoid: Navy


Undertones: Golden 

Skin color: Creamy white or peach

Generally people with straw or strawberry red colored hair, freckles, rosy cheeks or blue and green eyes.  

Tip: Similar to Autumn, you should look for colors with a gold undertone with a darker tone. But avoid dark and dull colors. 

Suggested colors: Camel, peach, golden yellow and golden brown

Avoid: Dark and dull colors. 


So the question is, what skin tone are you?

NY Spring 2011: Farah Angsana

The designer with a Thai-Asian flair, Farah Angsana. And also designer of one of my favorite lines yet. She mixes western and eastern culture and gets a whole line with a lot of flavor! In general, she seems to favor the jewel tones and the gold color. She also puts a whole lot of emphasis on the right fit of the dress. And I simply love the Thai flair to the whole look! Brief biography here.

Gotta love that emerald green. 
It is your typical dress, but we are impressed with the choice of fabric! A nice structured top and a nicer flowy dress. It gives the illusion of an eastern goddess! Like you are walking on air, yes?

How about turquoise blue?
The typical sexy short dress with that darling turquoise. It is perfect for that hot date you've been looking forward too, yes? Plus this dress works perfectly to show off that sexy legs.

Pale gold works good on fair skin. With a nice corset on the top and embellished bottom, it exudes that delicate femininity, yes? 

Like eastern flavored smexyh. 
Somehow, this looks a little Malay to me, no? That dress has that Ketupat patterned thing going on! The epitome of east meets west and ends up with the best! ;) Oh I just rhymed. Hehe.

Very Grecian goddess, yes? 
Very dreamy like. With that interesting top and flowy bottom, Farah seems to be on a row with this dresses. Pair with some cool golden hair adornments, can you say Adonis, Greek Goddess?

The perfect sweet, sexy flirty dress for that prom! We like the fit of this dress on this model, and the length is good too! A little swan lake to relive that old childhood ballet recital, no? 

This toga we simply love! A shade of black to bring us back to the dark side and that structured dress is simply to die for! What we look for is the best fit! Heck this dress is already so full of kick, any accessories would just get in the way! 

Very Kebaya inspired, yes?
What do you think? Its kind of lacey and gives out that eastern Glam goddess vibe. A little off track from the traditional and conservative Kebaya we are used to. But hey, it has that awesome fit the Kebaya is best known for! Its Kebaya with extra sexy on top!

We simply adore that mosaic looking  dress on this dress! With different shades of gold, and toned down with some black, you are getting all the best in this dress. 

Like melted gold, oh so glam!

Dark gold somehow makes you look aloof and elusive, yet so intriguing at the same time! With its embellishments on the dress, you don't need anything but a tube dress style to rock this!

If you are digging the recent updates on the New York Fashion weeks, you should love the latest updates on blog-shopping goodies! We've picked out a couple of outfits that are similar to the pieces we see on the runways  of New York, except just a fraction of the price!

Now we've talked about Ruffian's preference to V neck dresses, is it an upcoming trend?

Double Woot

V Diva

Spotted at Double Woot, a gorgeous V neck with a bold twist! Empire waist line emphasized with a contrasting belt, a great way to show off that slim figure!

Gray, navy, black, you can choose between these elusive colors! And guess what? Its only RM50! With the belt included! Steal or what? 



The Olsens

Another V neck! But with a maxi dress flair. Fans of the Olsen Twins and their Bo-ho taste in fashion will adore this piece!

Match it with a thin belt or a thick one, you'd still shine like a Greek goddess. Available in both Black and White. So which one are you? Sweet Ashley or edgy Mary Kate? Only for RM69!



Belt with Brooch

You are definitely going to need a cool belt to match those V necks. And since both dresses reviewed are plain colored, why not go bold with a little embellishments?

So what do you think? Only for RM23


White is definitely one of those colors that never goes out of season! Check out these couple of white wonders!

Button and Co. *newbie*


How's about a cool white corset? And those delish looking eyelets adds that little detail that makes all the difference! Oh so sexy. :]

A closer look and oh-wow, it is well made! ;) Pair it with a cropped jacket, a cool pair of jeans and sun glasses, sexy yes? Only for RM 41!

Emcee Couture


One thing we also noticed in the Ruffian line, they put a lot of emphasis on the waist line. Be it V neck, the empire waist line, it all draws attention to the waist. Precisely why Emcee Couture has once again hit the right target with this little number here. 

Plus we are digging that edgy floral print there! ;) Only for RM38!
