1. That Bombshell Look

    It’s common knowledge that Bangsar is boutique central of Kuala Lumpur. Just take a stroll along the Jalan Telawis on a weekend and you’ll see stylish women with bags and bags of stuff hanging from their arms, each from the many different boutiques there. Needless to say, it can get pretty daunting to pick which store to hit first. My favourite? It has to be Bombshell on Jalan Telawi 2. It makes the climb up two flights of stairs worth it - I suppose there is some truth to the phrase “Shopping is my cardio”.
Run by Ming and Ethan, Bombshell’s look definitely reflects the eccentric tastes of its owners. The vintage wallpaper gets much love from most people I know, as does the mannequin leg which sticks out from the cashier counter. Walk into the fitting room and you’ll see quirky messages scribbled on the wall by their customers. It’s a store that’s bursting with personality.

  3. FJ Benjamin Sale

    It’s back and getting everyone geared up to go! The FJ Benjamin sales has always been one of the more coveted warehouse sales in town, providing a culmination of great brands with sinful prices under one roof.
Past sales have seen Guess, Raoul, La Senza and Gap apparel going for as much as 80% off original price. And there’s nothing wrong with the goods too! No damaged stocks, just past season’s.
Next week, it opens to public on 3rd and 4th May at Level 3, Bangsar Village II New Wing (above MPH bookstore), but lucky HSBC cardholders get a preview on Friday the 2nd.
This is going to be exciting, as Banana Republic and Celine are available this time as well.

  4. I Like Lacoste.

    The elements that are really appealing are their sleek cuts and mod style. It’s one of those brands you buy that you know are classic and will never go out of style. Problem is, Lacoste’s prices don’t allow all of us to buy what we like at a whim!
Hence, yay for…

    I really do. Have you ever hugged someone wearing a Lacoste shirt? It feels smooth, soft and amazing.

  8. Confessions of an Heiress

    Before anyone faints from shock or wonders if they’ve accidentally stumbled onto a Paris Hilton site, fear not! Let me explain.
It started out as an internal joke, but I figured some closet Paris fan might be interested in getting their hands on her book “Confessions of an Heiress: A Tongue-In-Chic Peek Behind the Pose”. Published in 2004, perhaps said closet fan might already have a copy or two stashed somewhere around. Anyway, as you’ll notice, she completely stole our line! Nevermind that the book was published some four years ago… That’s just a minor detail really.
Someone suggested we add a tagline on our blog “Our name’s so cool, Paris stole it” (Hi Adrian!).

  9. A Different Sort of Super

    Stumbled unto this site called Supermarket that supports only original designers and aren’t we all fans of that.
They’re not super cheap but you gotta give the designers credit ey? 
Featuring pretty things from jewelry to prints and baby clothes, Supermarket will have you surfing and cooing even if you don’t intend to buy anything.
Check out these leet pop-out earrings by designer Melissa Borrell (i’ve never heard of her before this, have you? God i love the internet!)
Upon Googling her, she’s been featured by CoolHunting.com and ArtNewsChannel.net before so she’s no newbie to some coverage.
Borrell’s specialty seems to be her pop-out accessories that come attached to the metal plate its cut out from. All you have to do is pop it out carefully yourself, attach the pieces to enclosed ear hooks and wala! You were part of the design process.

  10. Richard Phillips for Jimmy Choo

    I’ve never really harboured any intentions to own a pair of Jimmy Choos. Blasphemous right? I can already feel a few of my friends giving me the evil eye for saying so, but there! I’ve said it. Before anyone decides to hang me, I agree that the name’s synonymous with gorgeous, glamourous heels. I guess I don’t always want gorgeous, glamourous heels… but that’s another post altogether.
Having said that, I’ve was going through the SS08 shoe collection (I’ve been in a gladiator sandal phase lately and in my frantic search, no stone remains unturned. Even if I’m not as enthusiastic about this stone) when I chanced upon these Richard Phillips collaboration bags. Love! I know this is probably old news to some. It was after all made available at Jimmy Choo KLCC earlier in the year but I guess I don’t have to explain again why I’ve missed this.
