Top This, Topshop!

For girls who walk into Topshop for inspiration more than purchasing purposes, I have got good news for you! Here's a true vintage floral print dress that somehow manages to look even edgier than its Topshop counterpart thanks to its unique black straps. Too good to be true, no?

Quirky Queen vintage top, both RM23

Blue Swank, RM30

Lemon, RM20

Blue Mod, RM25

Can You Believe It?

A vintage blouse that is NOT oversized. Tailored to fit with a refreshing colour mix of checkers and the cherry on top of the cake - a sweet little bow! Wear it prim and proper with high waisted shorts or rock it out with black cigarette pants.

Adorable sailor

The ONE piece that is worth being on the waiting list for. Adorable sailor mini dress in the cutest cut ever!
Polka the sailor girl, RM29*
Available at HeartWear Vintage
*Promotion til 6 Aug~ 1 pc for RM29; 2 for RM50; 3 for RM70!


Slouchy style

Get those creative juices flowing with this slouchy, drapey vest in basic black! Layer it over your basic tee, or an oversized one, and go for ballet flats. Slouching may be bad for you, but not when you look this good ;-)

Drape, RM15
Available at Preloved Junkies


Gingham goodness

Sundaes and fries at the diner, you'd be as cute as a doll in this red and white gingam top! The generous V-collar injects casual fun into this printed blouse. Shorts and mary janes, and a thick satin headband is all you need to get Archie's heart-- though I'd much rather prefer just a sundae :-P
Red and white gingham blouse, RM25
Available at Naked Toast on Fat Girls
p/s: Calling all petites... XXS Supre dress in-store too!


Nostalgic Charm

Old sewing machines your grandma used to have (she made you your first full-length, puffsleeve nightgown), little denim overalls with visible stitching. They've got it all here! It's nenenebubu I'm talking about! A little shop spewing hand-made goodness with a distinct vintage slant.

Blazer, RM32.

Oops! Big Ear! RM32

Hip to be Stiff AGAIN

Stiff little dresses are incredibly Twiggy-esque, don't you think? Just pair with tights and put on lashings of mascara! Wear that doe-eyed expression and crop your hair for that full-on effect (yes, we're getting a bit carried away).

Crew Neck Dress, RM29
from The Wearables.


Hip to be Stiff

Short, cute, geometrical, with double pockets! AND in a totally retro colour. Show off those long, long legs in this altered vintage dress with just the right amount of stiffness, originally from Like, Seriously.

Vintage Linen Sheath Dress, RM36
from Rag-Re-home
