Topshop-inspired Camelia cross-body bag

A bag that was all the rage both online and off! Nobody should be a stranger to one of the most popular Topshop bags yet--popular enough to inspire an inspired version.

This Camelia flower-shaped cross-body bag is both practical yet stylish. It's roomy enough to fit all your essentials and it'd look cute on practically anything! Chic with your baby tee and jeans, adorable with sundresses, and smokin' hot with miniskirts.

The one I'm letting go off is brand new. It's not even out of its packaging. Got the Topshop one as a present, I must have been ogling at it too much :P

Bought for RM62.
Letting go for RM52 including postage to Peninsular M'sia.

Practically Invisible

Tuesday, October 19, 2010
Leggings may not be as 'in' as it once was, but one item that's timeless for sure--tights a.k.a. pantyhose. Used to provide an illusion of flawless legs, it is practically a wardrobe must-have for girls of all ages. It's great for presentations and parties, work and dinners.

While it is true that they're a dime a dozen, not all are created equal. Luckily, after some time of wearing one-time-use-only pantyhose (because they easily snag and run after half a day, thanks to substandard material), I've found what I deem the perfect pair. Brought in from Hong Kong, these tights are love.

Yes, they're practically invisible! ;)

The material is very unlike the ones you find in Guardian (yes, that's where I get my tights from before I found these gems); this one's made of dwi-layer intertwined lycra. What this means is that it'll definitely last longer than your average pair, and stays tight and in-shape despite many washes! Who likes saggy pantyhose, right?

Because it's made of lycra, it also provides more body support: for the tummy, hips and upper thighs. Trust me when I say it makes your legs look more shapely and defined; no one sees jiggly bits on my thighs anymore when I walk!

It looks ultra sheer. Long story short: a friend actually brought several pairs back from HK for herself, and I never noticed when she wore them until she told me, because her legs don't show it!

Put them under bright lights (e.g. at night parties/clubs) and you'll see that they're subtly luminous. They give your legs a healthy sheen that makes you glow :)

Now, although this is a pre-owned/pre-loved blog, I assure you that these tights are brand new, in its plastic and everything. I'd never sell pre-loved intimates; that's plain unhygienic.

How it works: A friend is heading to HK at the end of the month and will be bringing these back if there is demand. Stock will arrive back in Malaysia in the first week of November.

However, I do have several pairs on hand (from her last trip there) for those who'd like to try one out first
