Sport Luxe Activewear

80s SKI FASHION Back in the late 80s, early 90s, activewear became the trend of the era, but then fashion changes and the once popular baggy silhouette were no longer “cool” so we moved on to newer things. However, since commercial fashion hasn’t come up with any new trends in the past decade, history have been just reinventing from the olds, and so fashion bounds to make its comebacks. Fashion shoot from Vogue 2012 Fashionable Sportswear is one of the most prominent trends in recent years that has derived and evolved from the 80s/90s sport trend; remember Tommy jeans, polo shirts and leg warmers, they were not costumes but real clothing trends once! As we entered a new generation of fashion, certain styles evolved and became new categories.  Sport Luxe has been slowly coming to shape and since built up its following due to the latest craze/crave of fitness/healthier lifestyle (so long sugar and junk food), it’s now a staple category and also one of the most profitable line for many brands.    I was first introduced to sportluxe by early player Stella McCartney when she launched her crossover with Adidas in 2004.

My Fluffy Fuzzy Faux Fur Wish List AW14

This time I am going to show you some of my favorite fluffy items, massive trend for AW14.WHO NEEDS REAL FUR WHEN YOU CAN AFFORD THESE? I have found these items from various fashion brands and bloggers’ account before and during New York, London and Milan Fashion week. Although they are all non plus size, but I am sure you can be inspired by fashion at any size. Btw, Wish list = Things I cannot afford. 1. Shrimps by Hannah Weiland Instagram: @shrimps_ This coat is so cute and nice and practical for winter! I cannot afford such price point (USD$600+), and so I will start doing some research and make my own to be ready for this winter!     2. Ainea From their brand profile, “Ainea is the newly launched clothing brand from Italian textile company Lanificio Becagli. Under founder Piero Becagli’s stewardship, the company has been creatively developing innovative materials and techniques for fashion and sport for over 50 years.” LOVE this RED and WHITE COAT! Again another coat on top of my list to be made for this winter. Splurged at Avenue 32   3. Aujourlejour Ig: @aujourlejour_official These coats just wouldn’t stop! Many designers are dishing out

Frugal fashion

You think you know fashion Well, fashion’s a stranger You think fashion’s your friend My friend, fashion is danger Although I am a “fashion blogger”, I am one of those who does not have much of a fashion budget per month… Not sure if you have even heard of that but my budget is so small, that I have to plan properly how many items I can get out of it, 2 weeks before pay day kind (as you know, shopping online is like you are fighting for one item with thousands of people). Because if one can’t afford something, one shouldn’t even have an idea of getting it. Just like I shouldn’t get into fashion blogging unless I have the money to be trendy, or I don’t blog about trends and just wear my old clothes all the time. Do you think it works? I personally think it doesn’t. People like new things, they like trends, and all the sucessful bloggers are all about trends and showing new pieces from the latest fashion show, correct me if I am wrong Susie bubble, Man Repeller, all of the girls on lookbook! A close friend of mine lately told me she

Rick Owen RTW SS2014 : Review from a plus size busty woman

Again big noise that roam the “cool kids” fashion world and the plus size world all in one go. Edgy fashion designers using plus size women as models on runway. Yay! To the marketing team of Rick Owen’s.Not so much for the plus size women actually. Out of the whole collection of 40 looks, I can pick around 5 that we might look good in if we style them down with some soft fabrics. Yes, they mentioned that one of the purposes for having a step group and their performance is to show how flexible women could be, in these clothing even though they are all made of leather and hard material, and I do have to admit that we are missing some pieces like this in the plus size fashion world that really could make things more modern and fashionable, but I absolutely agree with one of the readers on who said, “As relieved as I am to see real women on the catwalk, particularly women of color I think the designs were unflattering to a curvy woman. Clothes riding up, cut in the wrong places. You can’t design for a woman with curves the way you can

Obsessed with Round bags / Circle bags

I saw a carven bag earlier and I was in awe, it’s so retro and beautiful and I am instantly obsessed. This is an item I wouldn’t mind invest in as it’s not easy to find a timeless round chain bag that I can pair with most of my outfits. Ideal would be a beige one with chain like in this photo but with better quality. If you know of any, do let me know! x Here below are a bunch of them I have “cyberhoarded” (Yep I made that up).
