These orange and pink limited edition t-shirts are designed by three Chinese citizens namely Bei Bang (the pink one) and Perk, a duo artists (the yellow one) exclusively for Nike. They come together with a very nice packaging, a round-ish ala traditional chinese box as the storage. Uniquely, they were all designed and made in China. I got it from a warehouse sale for only RM50 each

Victoria Beckham in Roland Mouret's Pink Moon Dress

I have said very mean things about Victoria Beckham in my time, such as that she could neither dance nor sing and should give up her disastrous efforts at a solo career while she and David had some money left. I take none of them back. What I have lately come to realise is that what Victoria understands is clothes. She knows what to wear and she knows how to wear it. The revelation came in the form of an unforgettable pink dress
The Moon dress by Roland Mouret that Victoria wore when she attended the press conference that welcomed her husband to LA Galaxy last summer is a work of genius. Mouret's designs usually begin with draping a model in fabric, in this case, 96% cotton and 4% elastane. By making two double-sided folds from nipple to neckline he constructed a bodice with oblique side-seams joining extended cap-sleeves that stand proud of the shoulders, each stiffened by another small origami fold. The front panel is divided by an inch-wide half-belt that holds one edge of a folded tab into which two more folds are set. The straight skirt ends at mid-knee. Some sources claim that the back zipper extends from nape to hem, which would mean that you can walk into the dress like a cupboard, but this impression appears mistaken. Victoria's dress that day had a kickpleat at the back

As Victoria would tell you herself, it is the extra half-inch that counts, but nearly all the women who have worn the real dress have given into the temptation to wear it a size too small. Not Victoria. As she prowled along the hot green turf of the playing field, the perfect background colour for the cold pink of the dress, the half-belt sat flat on her natural waist and the skirt moved easily. Off the peg, the Moon dress would set you back about £1,000. By teaming it with a matching pink ostrich-skin Birkin bag by Herm├Ęs and hoisting herself five inches higher on stupendous Balenciaga heels, with no added tat, no bling, no gloves, no hat, Victoria did that clever, innovative dress proud

Dsquared Long Sleeves T-Shirt

Posted by The Bargain Hunter on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 at 11:56 PM

If you want to add some style eccentricity into you clothing, try to mix and match different but minimal patterns like this made in Italy (surprisingly) Dsquared long sleeves t-shirt that I got from FOS for only RM50. I love the stripes sewn at the lower part of the t-shirt, adding some spices to if not a plain boring long sleeves, collar t-shirt

The Pause of Life

Bintulu

I hate traveling and "long" distance flights make me wanna puke, so when I have to travel for work, what choice do I have? Like this recent trip to Bintulu and Labuan. And how am I supposed to keep this blog going if I was not doing any bargain hunting in KL?. But do I really think that I am taking this whole big of things for granted in this present life by being a self-centered and narrow minded person? I think so. My life has always been revolved around KL (not that I am complaining) that when I had the rarest opportunities to visit these kind of places (which are a big no no for the shopaholics) ironically I felt blessed and humbled by the diversity of lifestyles shown by the locals. I mean, as I am writing all these stuff about branding, pricing and shopping, I just keep thinking "Do these matters to them?"
