EMODA haul

People say Japan goods are really good. The best Japan stuff I can get around my place is from Daiso or 100yen. The dark side is they don't sell apparels wtf. But the small items I can find there all are good! I mean the cuteness and the use of the item worth the price. In fact, I can find same item like what I can find in Daiso at other places BUT nothing can beat the cuteness Daiso carries. Being a girl, cuteness is important wtf. Say like others will buy sponge at market for RM4.50 but I will spend RM5 for a sponge in Daiso because it is in Hello Kitty head shape HAHAHA that's how I live my life. 

So, EMODA which is one of Japan brand apparently increase its popularity in a blink of eye. They don't need ten years to grow. From my opinion, their focus is simplicity but something that is easy to mix and match. If you read Cheeserland and Fourfeetnine, you can see how EMODA apparels instantly caught your eyes even though it is just a pair of socks. Me too. I noticed myself keep clicking on EMODA Global website and placed orders HAHAHA. Here are my purchases.

Bulky Insole Shoes in Blue

Even the box caught my eyes. I can't take my eyes out of it. It is so chic with the combination of black and white. It's weird that Japan didn't use numbers like US which is most commonly used. They use S, M and L size. So I gambled my life on choosing size. Luckily, S fits me.

I wanted pink but it sold out. This blue is awesome too. Recently, I bought pairs of high heels but it is a bit hard to wear heels for shopping purpose. My shopping slot is never 15 minutes. It will takes hours of walk. In a same time, I want height! Platform is the best choice. I foresee myself wearing these gorgeous here and there.

Camera Case

Before I place orders, I was pretty sure this case won't fit my camera. It is more to a compact camera case. But I was thinking of make this as my phone case. When it arrived, I'm right. My camera can't fit. But it's okay because iPhone 4 can fit. So, mission accomplished wtf. It is made of synthetic leather. I swear I don't know what is synthetic leather but that's what they say HAHAHA. I love how simple it is but it still gives impact to your daily fashion. Sometimes, I am lazy to bring my handbag to run errands. So, I had to hold phone and purse like that. Guess this will definitely solve my problem. It can handles my phone and enough money for a simple errand.

I admit they ain't cheap but for me they worth it because of the quality. But in Japan, it is their standard price. If you say you can buy this for RM 20, for me that's your choice. I also can get that price if I buy in taobao but not this quality. It's all in your hand.

I am happy with my purchase. EMODA handles my orders very good. But I suggest for them to improve their website. I mean update the shipping status. For my orders, the shipping status never changed even after I received my parcel HAHAHA. I went to their fb page and asked why my orders were still unshipped even after 5 days. The next day, Poslaju van came and honked. I spotted instantly a chic box next to the driver and I knew it was mine. The poslaju man must be very confused why is this girl smiles very very very wide. Am I too handsome for life or what HAHAHA.

So yeah, I can see myself as return buyer for EMODA :)

quality x quantity

It is a fact that I have too much clothes. My family and friends acknowledge that I am a serious shopper. I used to spend my money on buy 3 free 1, or buy 2 free 1, or buy 1 free 1, or buy 2 for a price of 1, or whatever-you-know-how-it-works. So my wardrobe is never empty. But frankly, out of 3, there is only one of them that I really want. The other two are just to fill the quota. And usually, the material is not good. One throw into a washing machine will destroy it. If it doesn't fit to my body perfectly, I don't want to wear it again. But to throw it into dustbin, I will be investigated by my mom why I waste it like that. To avoid all that, I just put it inside the wardrobe but never wear again *sigh* That's how my wardrobe exploding. 

Now I am reducing them. Since I'm now living alone, I can throw my imperfect shirts whenever I want HAHAHA no one will nag and no one will pick it up again from the dustbin. I prefer to hang all my shirts instead of fold them because I can have all the so-called-walk-in-wardrobe by myself. I notice that almost half of shirts I own, I don't wear often. Some of them I only wore once! For instance, I don't like to wear a shirt with school logo (you know when everyone agree to have same shirt with same logo and same color duh!). So when I have to, I only wear once. 

One of the reason why I buy too many is because I tell myself that I have to buy so I can match it with a pant I bought recently. I am always lazy to try first my purchase (my bad I know) because I always feel like I can fit into anything since my body is not that weird HAHAHA, so I just proceed to the cashier. Little did I know when I come home and try to match it using the imagination I had earlier, it comes out wrong wtf. So there it goes the top will rest in peace in wardrobe fml.

Same goes to bags or shoes issue. I have to buy to match with this and that. In the end nothing is right.

So, I'm going to reducing them be selling or give them out to my family or unfortunate students and only put quality ones into my wardrobe. I'll teach myself patience. No more being crazy when seeing all that SALE signs. Keep calm and buy quality instead of quantity.

effortless chic

I don't remember very well when it started but I notice that I no longer use 16mm diameter contact lens, no longer line my eyes 5m and wing it doll like (still do but more natural), no longer wear princessy dress, no longer loving barbie striking pink (well actually I've never love striking pink HAHA). I also notice that my style also changed. I can't say much because things will usually change from time to time.

My favorite blogs were #1 Cheeserland, #2 AudreyFourFeetNine, #3Xiaxue. Now they all rank down. My most favorite blog now is VivyProudduck. I've never missed read her new blogpost. She's so entertaining. And her outfits are very inspiring. Her pretty face helps too :) And her expensive bags (I-am-jealous!). I tried to find out what is her fashion called, then yesterday I think the word 'effortless chic' is suitable. She didn't put too many layers on her but still she looks very great. She just dress neatly and put some accessories, then tadaaa~ she's ready to go. Because of her, my top shopping website now is FashionValet HAHA that also tell you guys that I made few purchases already *sigh* I promise you can't take your eyes easily from that dangerous web!

Knowing that she's also petite (standard size of Malaysian I think), guess the way she dress herself can also suit me.
Sailor top : Roger Yong 
Pants : local store

My first try on palazzo pants. I used to think that palazzo thing not suitable for me because I'm short but Vivy rock it very well. Little did I know that it is very comfortable! Obviously, Chic Yamada's palazzo pants seems like the best, but this cheap material lycra palazzo I bought from local store also nice. And tuck in? Helloooo? What style is that? Very skema lah you know! Yea, I used to think that way but why it looks nice when I try??? *confuse*. My other half yet to see this style. I'm pretty sure his comment will be like 'ugh! Buruk.' He doesn't have fashion sense, please be informed HAHAHA.

Flower top : Bandung
Pants : Padini
Headband : local store

Tuck again? HAHA see how easy I can be influenced? That headband, didn't it reminds you to Salvatore Ferragamo bow style? Actually I'm so over headband thing already but it can't be helped I still use it sometimes. Sereni & Shentel headbands are the best! Very gorgeous. But their prices are expensive for my accessories standard. Maybe one of you would like to give it to me as present? Please give me your email, I'll give my address HAHAHAHA.

End year school break has come

First, I'm presenting you guys my most popular selca at the moment. I uploaded this in instagram then my friends commented I look like shampoo model here. Thank you to the fan. Due to the likes on instagram, I uploaded again in facebook. and managed to get 15 likes HAHAHA that's a good news to me. Before this, just to get 1 like, I had to call genie in a bottle to grant my wish wtf. My aunt some more commented I look like Fauziah Latif, famous Malaysia pop singer 10 years ago LOLOL.

 You all just want to make me happy right? fml

mustard dress and necklace from Bandung
watch from W♥C
shoes from Kiss & Tell

I took a leave that day because I think I deserve it. Worked hard for the week arrange this and that, key in marks, etc etc etc. So I put effort on doll up myself and go out. I love it how I can take all the time in the world putting make up on my face and choosing apparels and accessories. My usual days are usually rush everything because I need to be at school before the bell rings. Sometimes I would skip contact lens because I wake up late. Sometimes I wear tracksuit even though I know I won't teach PE that day because I am too lazy to iron baju kurung. I wear sandals to school because the environment is not right for me to wear heels. It sadden me that I'm super messy these days. So, when I have extra time I put effort to make myself pretty and neat again.

Was unhappy last week. I failed again in applying to transfer back to my hometown. This time I'm very sad. Guess I put too much hopes this time. I think it's time already for me to come back to my family. I've been away from my family since secondary school. I went to boarding school, then further my study to college that also far from home, and now working very very very far too. So I spent very little times with family. Some people just don't understand. They say it's okay to stay far from family as long as payday comes every month without fail. I bet they simply say like that because they stay with their family. They don't know the down side. But it's okay. I will try again next April :)

Me that didn't look like me HAHAHA.

Till then, bubbye!
