1. Icon of the Week: Havaianas

    Since last week we went full on with high-top boots, we thought we'd relax a little more this time around with easy breezy flip-flops. Mention flip-flops, and the first name that comes to mind is 'Havaianas' - simply because they're so wonderfully universal, relatively affordable and personally, they're by far the comfiest flip-flops my feet has ever known. So that's why I'm paying tribute to these rubber-wonders by taking you through a  Havaianas  fashion journey!

  2. Icon of the Week: Dr. Martens

    Before I start, I have to tell you all how badly I wanted to celebrate Dr. Martens as an icon, perhaps even when I first joined TiC. But I refused to do so because I had staunchly planned to write it while wearing a pair. My friends, it gives me the greatest pleasure to say I am able to do so today!

  3. Just-for-Fun Fridays: Couture Lollies

    The first time I saw this picture (which I admit, was way back in July - so not newsworthy), I thought what on earth is Katy Perry doing all buddy-like with Rihanna. I never thought okay, check out those sparkly spangled lollipops because they're going to be the biggest thing since the cigarette holder. My mistake. But better late than never I always say, so just for fun this Friday, what do you think of couture lollies?

  4. Icon Of The Week: Gwen Stefani

    You probably already know that No Doubt is due to perform at the F1 Rocks Singapore with LG party in two days. When I first heard the news, I flipped out, because I had already booked and anticipated a vacation to Korea five months before.
After a few weeks of moping and disgruntlement, I decided to instead pay tribute to Gwen Stefani's fashion evolution to iconism and in turn, take a trip down the years I spent growing up idolising her. I hope you have as much fun reading this as much as I did writing it.

  5. Just-for-Fun Fridays: Raya Special

    Not too long ago, I attended Bernard Chandran's Petang Raya 09/10 collection preview. Honestly speaking, I went in prepared to attempt stifling yawns (it just sounded like such a "datin" event). What I didn't expect though, was to come out with a locked dropped jaw, and hope for the Malaysian cultural fashion industry.

  6. Icon of the Week: Wonderbra

    Since you all enjoyed the C-String so much, I thought it'd be fitting to complete the set by focusing on the Wonderbra this week. Now before you think I'm on a mission to cheapen Tongue in Chic, I ought to reassure you that I'll be emphasizing more on the history, development, marketing and advertising that eventually led to Wonderbra becoming a universal substitute for the word - pushup bra!

  7. TiC Pick: Pleated d’Orsay Pumps

    Personally, I've never been a heels kind of girl, which I think my daddy's wallet appreciates very much. In fact, I only own one pair of heels. However, there are a few select pairs I adore and love to look at as works of art, rather than a mere accessory. One of them, is the Christian Louboutin Armadillo peep toe platforms.

  8. Just-for-Fun Fridays: C-Strings

    Early this week, I must admit I had quite the chuckle when I opened my inbox to read about c-strings for the first time. I had to immediately tell a friend about it, describing it as a one-sided ear muff that supposedly works better than a g-string in terms of concealing VPLs! I then proceeded to doing a little more research to tell y'all all about it! Just for fun, on this lovely Friday, read on!

  9. Icon Of The Week: Irving Penn

    Edit: Irving Penn passed away on October 7, 2009; just a month after we wrote this post :(
I'm not quite sure if you've heard just yet, but today's a very special day (090909 and all)! And quite coincidentally, the person I'm featuring this week is pretty special too - he's the first man TiC inaugurates as an fashion icon! Meet Irving Penn. You might know him as the husband of the world's first supermodel, Lisa Fonssagrives, or as one of the world's most celebrated fashion photographers. Either way, we're focusing on him for producing so many images we regard as iconic today!

  10. Just-for-Fun Fridays: Pale VS Baked

    Vacationing at this time of year was a silly thing for me to do. With much thanks to the indecisive weather we've been having, my tan turned out to be a dull grey. The sort of achromatic ashen you'd get right before your beef is cooked. So here I am, left with this grey matter that's neither a tan, nor my regular fair. Which got me thinking. Which led me to our Just For Fun Friday this week: how do you like your skin; pasty or well done?
