Click your heels three times...

I'm finding it hard to resist this cute little thing! Not only perfect for lazing around with candy shorts or distressed mini denim skirt on a hot afternoon, but also extremely adorable with its colourful heels print and mini bow sash on the side. Toooooo cute! :-O

Clever huggers

Go a step above regular cotton with these knitted mini dresses. Wear them loose, belt them, throw them over slick leggings, tuck them into a skirt-- there's aplenty you can do with these. Did we mention the fabulous cutting with the ribbed bodice (only!) to ensure you're hugged at the right bits? ;-)

Latte/Cherry Pom, RM28 each
Available at JacnKat


Punk princess

Be a punk princess whether it's day or night. Minimalistic studs on a dress with a detachable sash for the nocturnal princess, and a big lippy red kiss long tank for the daytime rocker chick next door. Throw a cropped acid wash jacket over them and mess up your hair a little for maximum drive.

Yellow barbie

It's hard to find a really pretty yellow dress, until you see this one! Button up on the back, minimalistic exposed zipper pocket on the front, and cute pockets to dip your hands into. Shorten the length for a more sexy mod look, or wear it as it is-- this yellow's gonna make you pop like sunshine.

Available at Wannabundle


Hot stuff

OH DEAR, isn't this just the sharpest little jacket ever? In hot pink (also looks kinda fuchsia, which would be as awesome!), with princess sleeves, and a thick bottom hem panel-- totally Victoria Beckham, totally Legally Blonde, totally Jenny Humphrey!

Pair it with houndstooth shorts, booties and a thick hairband for some instant sass.

Pinkis Ol'som, RM35
Available at Vintage Rock Lurve Shop


Lazy stud

An oversized cardi can be your slick legging's best friend, what more in such a chill out colour palette of light grey and white stripes. And we love the suprise of the little studs, gives this silent beauty some punk edge, doesn't it? ;-)

Stripes Cardigan (UNISEX) V Neck, RM26

Cleanin The Closet

MYSTQ is having a clearance sale!! All her vintage dresses go for RM20 and that's including post ekspres. So technically, it's only RM16 for one of these beauties. These dresses don't look too frumpy because of their clean lines and solid colours. You could shorten them if you like, give some new life to old clothes!

All dresses go for RM20

Thriftbook Special Guest Reviewer: Maximus

Good day ladies,
Due to popular demand, I've been specially asked by the beauties running ThriftBook to be your guest reviewer. I'm highly honoured and feel extremely privileged to be amongst such company, I must say.

So while surfing what you call the internet today, I chanced upon this tigress of a dress. Only for the type of woman who knows she's in control...and loves every moment of it. Just the type of woman for me.

In the gladiator ring, life is always at stake, only you have the control of whether you make it out alive or not, so I always appreciate a lady who can take things into her own hands and make her own fate.

That shall be it for today.
I wish you well, ladies. Till I blog again.

Guest Reviewer Profile

Girlies! As some of you girls might remember, one of our resident reviewers posted up a request on our ChatBox a few weeks ago asking for a pair of gladiators. Well, after waiting and waiting, finally, someone responded to her. And that's where we found Mr. Beefcake himself!!!

Maximus (swoons)

And, we at ThriftBook started thinking, hmmm, why not a male's point of view when reviewing clothes? And, boy, don't we have an Alpha Male here! So we asked him to take a little time off gladiator training to do a few reviews for us and...the rest, they say, is history.

So we proudly bring you.....

Structured romping

Rompers and jumpsuits are a-poppin up everywhere on the brand new stock blogshops! So it's only fair that we feature the ones that won't break your piggybank ;-)

Structured and more masculine, we say tie an obi belt to define your waist, wear your booties or high heel gladiators, and strut your stuff. A more subdued colour than the neon ones we previously featured, and comfy too-- we really love one-pieces like this!

Jumpsuit, RM25
Available at Oldlovely
